Resolution opposes bridge toll Commissioner says tolls are taxes By Stephanie Salmons

UNION — Although the city of Union is, according to Mapquest, some 15 miles away from Covington and the Brent Spence Bridge that spans the Ohio River to Cincinnati, city leaders approved a resolution opposing the use of tolls as a funding mechanism for the reconstruction or replacement of the bridge. The City Commission voted 3-1 to approve the resolution. As the resolution reads, the

city calls on members of the Kentucky General Assembly to “reject efforts to proceed with the placement of tolls for the construction, reconstruction, or replacement of the Brent Spence Bridge.” Additionally, the resolution calls on members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to recognize this as a “high priority corridor” and the project as one of “national significance which would qualify it for funding with 80 percent federal participation.” The resolution also directs the suspension of budgeted public funds to organizations lobbying or advocating the use of tolls.

Commissioner Bryan Miller, the sole incumbent on the newly seated commission, presented the resolution at the Jan. 7 City Commission meeting. “I think the federal government built our highways and bridges and that’s why I’m submitting the resolution for adoption,” Miller said at the meeting. He said he’s “just trying to put pressure on our legislature, our elected officials to do something.” In a phone conversation, Miller said tolls are taxes. “It’s an additional tax on top of what we already pay on gasoline.” By introducing the resolution to the city, Miller said it shows

Union is “in solidarity” with other cities and will tell elected officials they’re “taking a stand. We don’t want to be taxed any more.” New Commissioner Deanna Kline cast the lone “no” vote. Kline said in a follow-up message that supporting the business community of Northern Kentucky is “so vital to our region’s success.” According to Kline, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, as well as the governors of Kentucky and Ohio, “have indicated that tolls must be part of the solution or the bridge project will not move forward. Therefore, given the importance of the bridge to our lo-

cal prosperity, I didn’t feel it was appropriate to support a resolution contradicting their conclusions regarding tolls.” Alan Daly of Independence presented a similar draft resolution at the Independence City Council meeting on the same night. After Daly’s presentation, Independence Mayor Chris Moriconi expressed his displeasure at the thought of paying tolls to cross the bridge, and said bridge improvements should be funded by the federal government. Moriconi said the resolution could be presented at the council’s meeting on Feb. 4. Reporter Amy Scalf contributed.

Heroin overdose survivor gives back

By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Standing and talking are difficult these days for 26-year-old heroin overdose survivor Jason Malone of Alexandria, but his hands were still able to pass a $1,000 donation check to police to teach teens to stay off drugs. Malone, assisted by his family, presented a $1,000 check to Alexandria Police Department School Resource Officer Mark Branham for drug prevention education at the Jan. 3 city council meeting. Branham walked to the

back of the room to shake Malone’s hand and give him a hug. Doctors didn’t give Malone much of a chance of survival after he was rushed to University of Cincinnati Medical Center July 12, 2011, from a heroin overdose, said his mother, Terri Williams. Malone did survive, but he needed treatment for a traumatic brain injury, said his mother. Finding treatment for the brain injury required trips a center in Louisville because nothing was available locally, she said. After not being able to speak at first, he can speak in fairly unbroken sentences now and stands for

20-minutes during regular physical therapy sessions. The rest of the time he is confined to a wheelchair, she said. The $1,000 was raised through a benefit sponsored by the owners of Hayloft Tavern in Alexandria in December, Williams said. “I think it was very important to Jason, because he feels the need to keep other kids his age from taking the wrong road like he did,” Williams said of her son’s decision to donate the money back. Williams said her son

Workshop helps farmers process home-grown goodness By Amy Scalf

MORNING VIEW — A lifetime on the farm has taught Nancy Kloentrup not to waste anything. When she was left with crates of pumpkins and other varieties of squash after last year’s harvest, she knew the time had come to find out how to process those fruits for sale.

Kloentrup, who with her husband, Donald, raise cattle on Poverty Hollow Farm in Morning View, will be a local participant in the Kenton County Extension Office’s Homebased Microprocessor Workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11. The workshop, that give information on food safety and safe home canning, will be held at the Ex-

County Farm Tour and at local farmers markets, both as edible fruits and as decorations for fall displays. Kloentrup and her family have done well raising the squash, starting on about two acres five years ago, and, in 2012 doubling to four planted acres of the more than 200 they have out on Decoursey Pike. Last year, they also added four beehives to enhance pollination and expected a larger yield, but still got more than they bargained for. “We’re fortunate because we have nice, moist ground close to the river where it stays cool, and even when we had a bit of a drought and thought we’d have to irrigate, we’d get rain,” she said. “I want to grow a lot of different varieties so I have what-

ever anyone wants, but now I want to use these excess pumpkins, and this workshop will certify me to be able to process them into canned pumpkin or pumpkin butter or things like that right in my home kitchen. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.” She said she has almost 60 different varieties of pumpkins, squash and gourds, from big jack-olantern pumpkins to pie pumpkins, to heirloom types, and kershaws, neck pumpkins, acorn squash and others. According to Clouthier, the workshop leader, any producer who wishes to become a Homebased Microprocessor in Kentucky must complete the workshop. The workshop is the first step toward microprocessor certification.

Within a week after being released, she said her son turned to drugs again. His grandfather was in the hospital, Williams said. That was July 22, 2011. Williams said she sought longer drug rehabilitation center for her son before his overdose. The waiting list for a longterm bed was two years, she said. “More kids could get away from the heroin if there was a good support system,” Williams said. “I

mean, these kids can’t wait a day, let alone two years.” Williams said she will not be silent about heroin, and that’s why she, Jason and others in the family attended a rally at the Bellevue Vets in October. Williams said heroin is becoming a bigger problem than many realize in Northern Kentucky, and has also directly affected other members of her extended family. “It needs to be talked about,” she said. Williams said her son hopes to talk with people about his experiences and the importance of staying away from drugs, but is waiting until he gains more mobility. Jason Malone’s father

Tom Malone thanked the owners of the Hayloft Tavern and officially presented the $1,000 check to Branham during the council meeting from a podium.

Picked for nationals, cheering for next year By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County Middle School’s cheerleading team qualified to perform in national competition in February, but are staying home in hopes of a repeat selection next year. In addition to the national tournament invite, the team won third runner-up at the first-ever Kentucky middle school cheerleading competition Dec. 8 at Eastern Kentucky University. The short amount of time between being picked for nationals and the competition forced the team to decide not to participate in February, said coach Emily Hamilton, a teacher at the middle school. “I am very proud of them,” Hamilton said. “It is my third year coaching the competition squad, and this is by far the best year.” Not counting the training individual team members do in areas including gymnastics, being on the team takes a lot of commitment, she said. “These girls have put a lot of time into it,” she said. Practices are usually for two-hours Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On some occasions, like the recent New Year’s Eve practice, practice is four-hours, Hamilton said. “We take breaks, and I’ll feed them dinner, but it’s very, very intense,” she said. In competition the students perform for 2.5-minutes, and about a minute of that is cheering in a flurry of constant movement, Hamilton said. “From tumble they’ll do a back-tuck and then they’re up in the air,” she said. A couple of the girls want to cheer in college, and many of them will go on to cheer in high school, Hamilton said. “All the girls are passionate about it, but I have some that

this is what they want to do for the next 10 to 12 years of their lives,” she said. Hamilton said the team liked the idea of going to nationals in Florida, but opted no to because of the need for raising funds and organizing any trip with parents. “It was just such a short notice because it’s less than a month away, it’s Feb. 8,” she said. The national competition is the same one where colleges including the University of Kentucky and Northern Kentucky University cheerleading teams compete, Hamilton said. “It is the one that’s one ESPN, so it’s exciting,” she said. Team member Ashley Rust, 14, of Cold Spring, said she started cheering for Red Devils youth football when she was 6 years old. Qualifying for nationals meant a lot, said Rust, who is in eighth grade. “I think it was an amazing experience even though we didn’t get the chance to go,” she said. Rust said she hopes to cheer in college, and her favorite part of cheering is tumbling and jumping with a team working together. Jo Jo Metz, an eighth-grader of Alexandria, said she thought qualifying for nationals was “pretty great” because it was the first year the team competed for the spot. “It was just a great experience knowing that we were good enough after we put all the hard work in,” Metz said.

Bees get Johnson students buzzing By Amanda Joering

FORT THOMAS — Johnson Elementary students had a chance to show off their knowledge recently during the school’s annual spelling bee and geography bee. The fourth- and fifth-grade students, who qualified for the bees by winning their classroom competitions, went head to head in front of their peers to see who would have a chance to compete at state and regional levels. But, the bees aren’t all about winning, said fourth grade teacher Kathy Nestheide. “(Bees) give them a good chance to perform in front of a crowd and show off their academic talents,” Nestheide said. “Getting in front of an audience of your peers like that can be hard and this is good practice.” For her fourth-grade students, the bees can also encour-

age them to try harder academically, Nestheide said. Nestheide said after seeing how fun, but stiff, the competition is, students often go out of their way to try harder and do better when they’re in the competition in fifth grade. Principal said the bees have always been a fun part of the school year that the students look forward to participating in. Stratton agreed that a little friendly competition often has a way of getting the students to try a little harder. “Things like this gets them interested in being better and working harder,” Stratton said. For both the competitions, Stratton said the students spend a lot of time preparing and studying for the event, whether it's going over spelling words or getting practice questions from the National Geographic website. The winner of the spelling bee, Sophie Fahlbusch, now has

a chance to compete at the regional level and possibly at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The winner of the geography

bee, Will Russell, now has the chance to take a written test to qualify for the Kentucky Geography Bee and then possibly

compete in the National Geographic Bee.

Camels on top of wrestling showdown By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — He was worn out and sweating profusely, but Stephen Myers had enough energy to be happy about the wins he and his Campbell County wrestling teammates gathered Jan. 9. Myers, a senior, ended Campbell’s team dual match win over Simon Kenton with a 7-2 victory over SK senior Kevin Cooper at 152 pounds. It was far from an ordinary Wednesday night bout, as the match pitted a pair of two-time state champions, two of the eight returning Kentucky state titlists from 2012. “It was good,” Myers said. “I’ve wrestled with him a lot and he’s a friend. I knew I had to work hard and do my thing.” The match, rumored in online circles for days, brought a boisterous crowd to Simon Kenton. At least 20 people were shooting or filming the match, which was tightly contested throughout. Myers posted a quick twopoint takedown in the opening seconds, then neither wrestler could mount much of an attack on the other in the remaining six minutes of action. Myers had a 3-2 lead through the third period, with Cooper earning a one-point escape and each wrestler giving up a voluntary escape from a restart so they

could grapple with both on their feet. Myers scored four points in the final seconds of the match when Cooper attempted a desperation move that Myers defended by pulling him to the mat to score a takedown/near fall combination. “I just wanted to be quick off the go and go my hardest,” Myers said Myers is the defending state champ at 152, and Cooper at 145. Myers has been wrestling at 160 most of this season and is ranked first in the state in 160 by Myers improved to 41-1 with the win. He said the one loss was to Alex Marinelli from Ohio power St. Paris Graham at 152 in the major Greater Miami Valley holiday tournament. It was a match that unfolded similarly to his bout with Cooper. Myers said he had a quick takedown but then gave up the lead late and lost 6-3. Cooper also lost to Marinelli, 3-2, in the same tournament in Dayton, Ohio. The Camels capped off a big win over Simon Kenton, beating the Pioneers 54-13. The match was set up to determine the region’s top seed for the annual state duals tournament, which is Jan. 26 at Fern Creek High School in Louisville. Although not for an official KHSAA title, the state duals meet is an important tuneup

featuring most of the top teams in the state. That tournament changed formats this year, with 12 big-school and 12 smallschool teams qualifying. Campbell’s win over SK gives the Camels a better shot at a favorable draw. “We had a good win tonight,” said Campbell head coach Mike Bankemper. “SK’s got a couple of kids out but so do we. We felt we could beat them and the guys wrestled the best they could.” Myers’ sophomore brother Austin, Campbell’s other returning state champion, won by pin at 220 as Campbell won 10 of the12 contested matches and each side claimed a forfeit. The next closest match was also crucial, with Corbin Woods beating Kevin Roberts 3-0 at 145. Woods likely locked up the top seed in the regional tournament with the win. Other winners were Brad Krebs (103), Stephen Maggard (113), Bryan Spahr (120), Sean Fausz (126), Kent Bachman (160), Dustin Turner (170), Eli Mathews (182) and Nick Sinclair (285). Campbell was topranked in the state in the Dec. 25 report. The Myers brothers were top-ranked at 160 and 220, and Fausz is No. 1 at 132. Paul Hamilton, who didn’t wrestle against SK, is No. 3 at 145 though he is likely to compete at 138.

Breds regroup heading into All ‘A’ By James Weber

NEWPORT — The Newport Central Catholic boys basketball team had smooth sailing through the first month of the season, but the Thoroughbreds now have to race through rough waters as they approach their biggest goal of the season thus far, the All “A” Classic. NewCath is 13-2 entering the All “A” Ninth Region tournament. NewCath was set to start Jan. 14, with the finals Saturday, Jan. 19, at Bellevue. Tipoff is 7 p.m. The Thoroughbreds were 12-0 until losing 59-42 to defending state champion Trinity Jan. 4, then they tasted defeat again in their next game, falling 50-48

to rival Covington Catholic Jan. 10. NCC then beat Campbell County 68-64 Jan. 12. NewCath led by five points on Cov Cath midway through the fourth period, and lost by two after failing to get a shot off on its last possession because of a turnover. NewCath turned the ball over 20 times in the game and was 0-for-11 from threepoint range. “You’re not going to win the game doing that,” said NCC head coach Grant Brannen. “We probably had seven (turnovers) in the last four minutes. Cov Cath came in and bullied us on our home court in the fourth quarter and they got a well-deserved ‘W.’” The ‘Breds had another setback in the game, losing senior

forward Nick Seibert to an ankle injury. He is not expected back until February. Seibert is a key force in shooting and defense at 6-foot-5. “It’s a key loss and some other guys will have to step up,” Brannen said. NewCath has had plenty of bright spots in its overall sparkling record. Sophomore center Drew McDonald had 21 points, 19 in the second half, against Cov Cath and has been one of the region’s top post players. Sophomore Zach Pangallo, the latest in the long-running legendary line in that NewCath family, had 12 points, and junior center Jake Schulte had 11. Senior guard Michael Bueter has been one of the area’s top scorers but had just four against CCH.

NewCath, which typically has four starters 6-foot-5 or taller, uses that length to be a strong defensive team, allowing fewer than 50 points per game. NewCath bottled up Cov Cath standout point guard Nick Ruthsatz for most of the game. Ruthsatz averages more than 21 points a game but had just five through three quarters. He broke through for seven in the fourth against the Thoroughbreds. Another priority for Brannen is outside scoring, noting the Thoroughbreds won’t win many games without a three-point basket even with their strength in the post led by McDonald and Schulte. The Thoroughbreds won’t be back on the hill until Feb. 9 against Beechwood.

Saints prosper with basketball balance By James Weber



Like many Division III basketball programs, the Thomas More College women’s basketball team has become a collection of prep all-stars from the surrounding region. Few have gathered local talent as well as the Saints in recent years, and they are having another nationally ranked season after beating St. Vincent 63-50 Jan. 12 at Connor Convocation Center. “We joke about the rivalries but we put that aside and now we’re all together,” said Campbell County grad Katie Kitchen. TMC improved to 14-1 overall and 8-0 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference with an emphatic win over the visiting Bearcats, who were second place in the league and dropped to 10-5, 6-2. The Saints had a 41-9

run in the game after trailing by six and led by as much as 26 points. “It was a good game, a hard-fought game,” senior Allison Long said. “We played our best and did what we could.” Long, a Conner graduate, leads the team in scoring at 17 points per game, and makes 2.5 three-pointers a contest. She said the Saints’ main fault in the game was too many turnovers. “We have our moments but we throw the ball around and get lazy at times, so we have to get better at that and improve our rebounding,” she said. “It’s how we’ve always played, at a fast pace, so that’s one of our advantages. That does come into some of our turnovers, but tonight we had too many that had nothing to do with that.” The Saints run behind local prep stars, with Kitchen (Campbell County) and Devin Beasley

(Conner) also averaging in double figures. Jenny Burgoyne (McAuley) joins them in the top four in scoring. The Saints have seven Northern Kentucky players, three imports from strong Cincinnati programs, two from Louisville and one from Carroll County. Six of the Saints have played in the Kentucky Sweet 16. They hope for big things down the road. TMC is ranked 10th in the nation and its only loss has been to a higherranked Calvin College team. The Saints would like to make their deepest advancement in the NCAA tourney. The men’s team has a highly balanced lineup, with 10 players averaging between five and 11 points a game. TMC rallied to beat St. Vincent 64-59 to improve to 13-3 and 6-1, pulling into a tie with St. Vincent and Bethany atop the league. TMC trailed by 10 early in the second half but dominated most of the period with a 33-16 run to lead by seven. The Saints lived up to their scoring averages, as no one scored in double figures but eight players had between five and nine points and another two Saints scored a field goal. Brandon Housley, a key part of Holmes’ state title team in 2009, has joined the team this season and started every game. He’s the lone Northern Kentucky product to get regular playing time. Both Saints teams have three PAC road games at Bethany, Grove City and

Cliff notes: Time to cut the spending If 100 people were drowning and you had the ability to save 99, would you? Of course you would. We didn’t do anything nearly as heroic in Congress earlier this month but the question of saving as many as we can from a potentially devastating consequence was relevant. The question was: do you stand aside and let taxes increase for everyone, or do you try to save as many taxpayers as possible before they do? I chose to try to do something. If our nation had gone over the “fiscal cliff” on Jan. 1, the average Kentucky family would have paid $2,200 more in taxes. Important federal priorities like the Department of Defense and the National In-

stitutes of Health would have suffered from indiscriminate cuts. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the Mitch combination McConnell COMMUNITY PRESS would have sparked a GUEST COLUMNIST prolonged recession and further unemployment. There is no doubt that this situation was unfolding at the end of the year due to a severe lack of leadership in the White House. Some in my political party counseled that because the president would achieve the tax hikes he campaigned for by doing absolutely noth-

So, you want to work? In the last month’s column, I indicated that there would be three in this series dealing with the excess amount of time that we have when we retire. The first article dealt with the benefits of volunteerism and suggested volunteer opportunities. This column deals with that Ken Rechtin COMMUNITY PRESS four letter word: W-OGUEST COLUMNIST R-K! What if, as so many of us were, you were “right sized” into retirement in the middle of this recession? What if your boss appeared at your door late on a Friday afternoon in August of 2010 and said: “Goodbye, we no longer need you until after this recession.”? You know that you are the high cost employee. It isn’t your fault, it is just that you have been with the company longer than the others and have risen to the highest pay. So, the highest paid is first to go! You want and need, however, to work? Maybe work is a real financial need, maybe it is an emotional need; but it is a real need for many of us. A small task force made up of seven dedicated representatives of business, not-for-profits and government has been meeting on a regular basis since January 2012 to learn more about this employment issue and begin addressing it. The group has asked unemployed 55+ers their viewpoint. Here are some of the things that they told us: “I am too old. Nobody wants or needs my skills. I haven’t been in the marketplace for employment since I finished college, high school or community college. My resume’ is 20 years old. I really don’t know how to go about reentering the workforce.” From business focus groups, we learned that their

perception (and perception is reality) is: “You are too old, too set in your ways, not knowledgeable about technology, prone to illness and disease. You cost too much! Or, if you do come to work for me, then you will jump ship for a better paid position if one presents itself.” The need is real. There are numerous examples of 55+ individuals who find themselves in this position. The perception the employer has of us is real. So what can be done about this? The Task Force hopes to match employers’ needs with potential employees’ skills, resulting in a win-win for each group. The niche employee group represents mature (55+), committed, motivated and experienced men and women who want to contribute to society as active members of the workforce. Their interest may be in job sharing, part-time, seasonal, project based or fulltime employment. The Task Force continues to move forward in development of strategies to address this need. As programs are developed, more information on the actions of the Task Force will follow. Interested in becoming involved as a potential 55+ employer or are you 55+ and want to reenter the workforce? Call Ken Rechtin at Senior Services at 859-2927971. There is so much to this “getting old” thing that we need to talk about. If I don’t know the answer, then I will learn along with you. If you find this article helpful and have suggestions about other topics, then I would appreciate it if you will let me know. I can be reached at 859292-7971, or email me at . Or write to me at Senior Services of Northern Kentucky, 1032 Madison Ave., Covington, Kentucky 41011. Ken Rechtin is the interim executive director of Senior Services of Northern Kentucky.



A publication of

ing, we should just stand aside and let him own the resulting chaos. The thought was that Americans would personally experience the damage of the president’s agenda and urgently understand the need to go in the other direction. I had to try to do something to prevent Kentucky families from incurring massive income tax hikes. Voters may have re-elected President Obama but my constituents didn’t, and I wasn’t willing to force Kentucky families to pay a $2,000 price so we could make a political point. I knew that out of 4.4 million residents in the Bluegrass State, only about 5,800 tax filers have an income above $500,000. If I was able to persuade Vice President Biden to cut taxes for ev-

eryone below $450,000 for married couples and $400,000 for individuals, I could ensure that 99.7 percent of Kentuckians were spared from an income tax increase. It worked. We also made the tax rates permanent so in the future taxpayers would not be subjected to the uncertainty of expiring rates, and we permanently extended existing rates for dividends and capital gains. I also was able to negotiate a permanent reduction in the death tax to provide family farmers and owners of small businesses the ability to pass their life’s work down to the next generation. Was the deal perfect? Absolutely not. Was it necessary? Yes. Did it solve our financial problems in Washington as the

president suggested during the campaign that it would? Not by a long shot. The real problem is Washington’s out-of-control spending. We have a $16.4 trillion debt and an administration that hasn’t seen a federal spending program it’s willing to part with. If the president refuses to act responsibly and work with us to rein in spending then we will do everything in our power to force him. The tax issue is behind us. Now is the time to focus on cutting spending in Washington so we can preserve the country we love for future generations to enjoy. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, is the minority leader of the U.S. Senate.

UDLOW — Magic in Northern Kentucky has

a new champion in the Ludlow Theatre – opened by Circus Mojo owner Paul Miller. Internationally known magician Jeff McBride will perform a 90-minute show, followed by a two-hour lecture for area magicians Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Ludlow Theatre, said Independence resident Bobby Maverick, co-producer of the event through his Bobby Maverick Productions, who is also a practicing magician touring the U.S. Bringing “The McBride Magic Experience” is meant to set high expectations for more magic and entertainment being planned, Maverick said. McBride uses masks, swords and a mixture of magic and martial arts in his shows, he said. “So, people are going to know when we’re going to the Ludlow Theatre, you’re going to see the best of the best,” Maverick said. Part of the idea for the new theater is to provide a place for people to see some of the good magicians, musicians and entertainers from this area, he said. Miller, who has become known for his Circus school and performances based out of the Ludlow location, wants to give people the best live theater and variety arts shows possible through the theater, Maverick said. “The big surprise will be when they find out that guy lives two miles from them,” Maverick said. Alexandria resident Paul Ketterer said he dabbles in magic performing at birthday parties and other events under the stage name Paul Anthony, and is excited about McBride coming to Northern

Kentucky. Ketterer also shows off some of the best entertainment available in the area on a cable access show in Campbell County titled “Entertainers in the Tri-State.” Ketterer said he started the cable television show initially as a way to highlight local musicians, and later expanded it to showcase musicians and other entertainers. The Ludlow Theatre gives the area a place to see top notch magicians on stage, he said. “Jeff McBride is a big name in magic circles,” Ketterer said. “Unless his name is David Copperfield, the general public doesn’t even know the top magician’s names.” Artie Kidwell, owner of The Magic Shop in Covington, said he opened the store 18 years ago after leaving a career as a communications director in the corporate world. Kidwell said he’s been performing magic for 60 years. “I am very proud of the fact that’s what I do for a living,” he said. Kidwell said there probably less than 18,000 card-carrying magicians in the entire world. “But there are scores of people who always knew an uncle Bob who could pull a quarter from behind your ear or perform a card trick,” he said. Kidwell said McBride has gained quite the reputation because he incorporates dance, mime, Japanese Kabuki theater into his shows. McBride is both an entertainer and a magician, he said. Kidwell said he plans to see McBride. “He really has approached magic the way it should be approached, as a true theatrical experience,” Kidwell said.

Children can help make homemade dumplings


First, have your soup, stew or broth boiling on the stove.

1 cup flour 11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 cup milk 3 tablespoons butter or equivalent Bit of minced or dried parsley (optional) Pepper to taste

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt. Add parsley. Make a well in center. Heat milk with butter until butter melts. Pour into well and mix. Dough will look shaggy and very sticky. Don’t over mix. Turn heat down on soup to simmer. Use an ice cream scoop sprayed with cooking spray to drop dumplings carefully on top of liquid, leaving some space in between for expansion. Put lid on. No peeking! Simmer 6-8 minutes or until largest dumpling is done: cut in half to test.

Dumplings expand to double or even triple.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Baking powder: Not sure if it still has leavening power? Put a bit in warm water, it should fizz up quickly if it’s still good.

Hot dilly beans

Inspired by a Ball canning recipe. If you don’t want spicy beans, leave the cayenne out. You can substitute okra, as well but note the different processing times. Now as far as the hot pepper taste is concerned, after jars are filled, taste a bit of the brine and if you want more hot pepper, go for it. But remember, as the pickles sit, the hot pepper flavor will get more intense. 4 pint canning jars with lids 2 pounds trimmed green beans 21⁄2 cups clear or cider vinegar 21⁄2 cups water 1 ⁄4 cup Kosher salt 4 teaspoons minced garlic 4 generous teaspoons dill seeds 12 whole peppercorns 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper flakes, divided

Sterilize jars in a pot of boiling water for 15 minutes or run through dishwasher. Keep rings and lids in hot water. Keep jars hot. Brine: Bring vinegar, water and salt to boil. Pack beans tightly in jars, leaving 1⁄4 inch headspace. To each jar, add 1 teaspoon each of garlic and dill seeds, three peppercorns and 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne. Pour boiling brine over. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Put lids and rings on and process in boiling water bath for 8 minutes. If making okra, process 12 minutes. Let sit about a month (I know it’s hard) before tasting. These are pantry stable.

Homemade dumplings will double or even triple in size when dropped in hot soup or stew. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Rita’s canned hot dilly beans can be processed to be self stable, or simply refrigerated. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Refrigerator dilly beans No processing in boiling water bath. After you put lids on, let cool on counter and then refrigerate. Again, wait about a month before tasting.

Two-way poppy seed dressing

Citrus fruits are in season! Try this for topping a salad made from oranges, grapefruits, a handful of chopped parsley and a thinly sliced shallot.

Whisk: Zest and juice of one lemon 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon poppy seeds 1 ⁄4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt Salt to taste

How many of you have made homemade drop dumplings from scratch? Actually, they’re easy enough for kids to make, with your guidance. Dumplings are so good cooked on top of soup or stew, or simply dropped into hot Rita broth. And Heikenfeld I guaranRITA’S KITCHEN tee you’ll get “oohs” and “aahs” from those lucky enough to enjoy them. Also, I had mentioned that I had recipes for hot dilled vegetables and said if you wanted any, let me know. The requests for hot dilly beans were too numerous for me to mail, etc., so I’m sharing that one today. I also have a nice recipe for Korean kimchi, which is fast becoming trendy, on my blog.

Warranty could be waste of money When shopping for a used car, the salesman may encourage you to buy a warranty. But that warranty may turn out to be little more than a waste of money unless you’re careful. Matthew Terlau, of Lawrenceburg, Ind., bought a vehicle from a used car dealer nearly two years ago. He says the salesman convinced him to buy the warranty at a cost of about $1,500. The company, Majestic Warranty of Franklin, Ind., had a contract that claimed to cover a lot of items. But when Terlau called to get repair work approved, he says he was

given the runaround. “I’ve tried calling them. At first they would answer the phone and Howard they would Ain refer you HEY HOWARD! to different mechanics and then, the past year, it was really hard to contact them,” Terlau said. Terlau said he wanted to take the vehicle to a dealership for repairs, but the warranty company wouldn’t let him. Instead, he was told to go to small, independent auto

mechanics. The first mechanic, he said, was unable to find the problem. The second mechanic was helpful but, Terlau said, “He did all the estimates and turned them into them. But then I could never get ahold of the mechanic again.” If you think Majestic Warranty would then allow him to go to another repair shop, think again. Terlau discovered Majestic had gone out of business and filed bankruptcy late last year – taking his $1,500 with it. “I thought it was a good deal. I was getting a warranty that says it covers what it’s supposed

to and now, two years later, I’ve never got nothing,” Terlau said. Unfortunately, hearing that an extended auto warranty company has gone out of business is not unusual. So, if you’re considering buying such a warranty there are certain steps you need to take to protect yourself. First, find out where you can take your vehicle for repairs. Ideally, you should be able to take it anywhere. Second, make sure the contract is backed by a licensed, regulated insurance company. That way you can still file a claim even if the warranty company goes out of business. Third, check out the company with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB has no record of Majestic Warranty. Finally, after you pay for the warranty, get written confirmation of the policy, just to be sure your money was really sent to the company and not kept by the dealer. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Bones, joints affect quality of life Osteoporosis is not just a disease for the elderly. Ten million Americans have osteoporosis (brittle bones) according to the U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative. Another 34 million people are at risk for the condition. Osteoporosis makes bones weak and easy to break. Diane One of Mason the best EXTENSION ways to NOTES prevent it is to ensure our children develop the most bone possible during childhood, adolescence and early adulthood.

Additionally, healthy lifestyle habits practiced during adulthood help decrease the risk of developing osteoporosis or related disorders. Osteoporosis and other bone diseases can cause loss of mobility and independence, and deformity. Some risk factors include use of certain medications, having other medical problems including diabetes, arthritis, anorexia and others, family history of the disease, low body weight, inactive lifestyle, smoking, and

According to a U.S. Surgeon General’s Report, daily physical activity and a diet high in calcium and vitamin D can help prevent osteoporosis.

The unborn child cannot feel any pain during an abortion. True or False? False – “When doctors first begin invading the sanctuary of the womb, they did not know that the unborn child would react to pain in the same fashion as a child would. But they soon learned that he would.” Dr. A.

When a woman has had an abortion, it is best for those around her to minimize any doubt or regrets she may have and encourage her to just “forget it”. True or False? False – “Common in the post-abortion patient are grief and heartache over the procedure and feelings of loss and victimization. Even more important, however, is her inability to process the trauma and its accompanying feelings because of denying and repressing her thoughts and feelings about the event. Because the consequences of abortion can be so threatening, we don’t want to exacerbate the problem by doubting or negating the many women who have undergone excruciating pain because of the ‘choice’.” Theresa Karminski Burke, Ph.D., a psychologist James Kocher Merle Ann Koenig Jim Kohlhepp Jen Kohlhepp Mark Kolb Donald Kolb Dru Kolb Eleanor Kolb Elizabeth Kolb Joseph Kolb Magdalen Kolb Mary Kolb Maximilian Kolb Veronica Kolb Mary Lou Koors Laraine Kraus

Would a child born with handicaps consider it better to never have lived? No – “Studies on handicapped children have indicated their frustrations are no greater than those experienced by perfectly normal children… In the thousands of such circumstances in which I have participated, I have never had a parent ask me why I tried so hard to save the life of their handicapped child. Now that I am seeing children I operated upon years ago bring me their children for care, I have never had an old patient ask me why I worked so hard to save his or her life. Nor has a parent ever expressed to me the wish that his child had not been saved.” C.
