Regional police report data enabled By Chris Mayhew

Northern Kentucky police agencies are using new software to leverage all the local records and reports collected by multiple departments at the fingertips of a patrol officer in his cruiser. The system, the Northern Kentucky Data Interoperability, has been developed as a pilot program by International TechneGroup Inc. of Milford, Ohio. More than 40,000 police report records including speeding warnings and tickets can be searched live from a cruiser in any participating jurisdiction in Northern Kentucky now, said Fort Thomas Police Department Lt. Ken Fecher. Participating police agencies include Alexandria, Bellevue, Cold Spring, Covington, Ludlow, and the Kenton County Sheriff. The F.B.I.’s Covington office also shares limited information with the local departments. Fecher said an example of how the system will work is to use a previous case of police having stopped a man after receiving reports of suspicious man exposing himself to young girls. The man who was stopped wouldn’t admit to it, and a report was made, but later it was discovered that the man stopped was convicted of indecent exposure in Kenton County, Fecher said. “Had we known that in the field, we probably would have spent a little more time with him at the roadside,” Fecher said. Records already in KyOPS, a state data system, are not easily


U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, far right, presents a $30,000 check to police officials for the purchase of equipment to run software for a new electronic police records sharing system at the Alexandria Community Center Jan. 11. From left are Bellevue Police Department Chief William D. Cole, Fort Thomas Police Department Lt. Ken Fecher, Alexandria Police Department Chief Mike Ward, Covington Police Department Chief Lee Russo, and Davis. shared between local agencies and don’t have all the local information ranging from suspicious persons to neighborhood watch information, he said. Work is under way to bring Newport and Campbell County Police Department systems into the NKDI, Fecher said. “Those are two major populaces, and we can’t see their data,” he said. Fecher credited the donation of work from ITI Inc. for helping make the project a reality. The technical aspects of data interoperability is the mainstay of ITI’s business, but that’s mostly been in the private sector, said Mike Lemon, the CEO of ITI. It would be nice to say the donated time and work to create

the NKDI system is completely altruistic, but being a business there must be some upside, Lemon said. ITI wants to understand the nuances of working with government directly and prove the company’s technology’s uses, he said. Northern Kentucky was selected for the NKDI project in part because many of ITI’s employee’s live in the area, Lemon said. “Northern Kentucky is fortunate enough to have people like Mike Ward and Ken Fecher who have been driving cooperation and communication initiatives long before we engaged with them,” Lemon said. Alexandria Police Department Chief Mike Ward said also for the first time, federal officials can see

more local data and can use it to keep the country safe, he said. “This system allows us to interact with and share information not only with local law enforcement, but with our federal partners as well,” Ward said. U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, RHebron, presented a grant check of $30,000 to the Alexandria Police Department at a Jan. 11 meeting that will pay for equipment to run the NKDI software. The problem of getting the information down to the right people that fits their decision making needs in a timely fashion is vital locally and for national security, Davis said. “Closing the time gaps of lack of information is what is important,” Davis said.

Extended in-school day care offered By Chris Mayhew

Parents of children in Campbell County Schools can pay for the privilege of dropping them off as early as 6:30 a.m. and pick them up as late as 6 p.m. through a partnership the district has with two day care centers. Basic Trust Child Care and Kinder Academy, both in Alexandria, bid together as the “Children’s Collaborative” for the school district’s contract to provide beforeand after-school day care in the elementary schools. The program

is available in each elementary building except that Grant’s Lick Elementary students in the day care are bused to Reiley Elementary for the after school program. The contract also supports the teen care center that provides childcare at Campbell County High School, allowing teen mothers to stay in high school, said Bonnie Kees, who owns Basic Trust Child Care with her husband George. Before school, children receive a snack in addition to what the school offers for breakfast, and there is a daily program to get the students bodies and brains moving

with activities like arm circles called “Focus to Learn,” Kees said. After a day of elementary school, children are provided a snack and then preferably let outside to play, or into a gym inside, for supervised physical activities like kickball and jump rope, she said. “So, they go home well-exercised and fed,” she said. Students needing to study can also do that, and homework assistance is provided by the staff to keep students motivated and on track, Kees said There are also daily play centers set up in the afternoons that teach basic lessons in a fun way including science, math, drama and arts and crafts. The last day of the week is know as “Fly Away Fridays” where the staff shares information about a different country each month. The month culminates with a feast of foods representative of the selected country on the final Friday, she said. There is also a reading challenge, whichever school’s students reads the most books throughout the month receives a pizza party. And when school is canceled, day care is provided at Basic Trust and Kinder Academy, Kees said. “We provide snow day care,”

Moore of Cynthiana and Timothy A. Fairfield of Berry. For county attorney, two Fort Thomas residents, Chris Macke and Steven J.

And for Circuit Clerk, Republican Timothy J. Fis-

cher of Fort Thomas will challenge Republican and incumbent Taunya Nolan Jack of California in the primary. Jack was appointed to fill the un-expired term of former Circuit Clerk Tom Calme, who retired in 2009. For County Sheriff, Republican Anthony John Rouse of Alexandria has filed for election to face incumbent Democrat John D. Dunn Jr. of Mentor in the November election. Rob Rummel of Newport has filed as the Democrat challenger against incumbent Republican Mark Schweitzer for Coroner.

The Republican winner will go against incumbent Democrat Nicholas J. Wilson in November. Although not partisan races, the following candidates also had to file by the Jan. 26 deadline in case a primary was needed to dwindle the candidate pool down.

Defense drives Brossart girls hoops By James Weber

The Bishop Brossart girls’ basketball team had a chance to secure the top seed in the 37th District Tournament Jan. 22. They still have a chance, but their fate will not be in their hands, but likely in the hands of people flipping coins next month.

Brossart lost at district foe Scott 46-32 in Taylor Mill in its final seeding game. If Scott beats Silver Grove Feb. 8, Brossart, Scott and Campbell County will all end up with 3-1 district records, including 1-1 against each other. They will then have a three-way coin flip to determine the top seed. The top seed will

play Calvary or Silver Grove in one district semifinal, the other two teams will match up in the other semi. “It’s a situation I didn’t want to be in, but here we are,” said Brossart head coach Josh Grooms. The loss to Scott dropped the Mustangs to 9-7. It showed the team’s strengths this year, perimeter play and defense. The

Mustangs, who came in giving up just 37 points per game, pressured the Scott guards and made it difficult for them to get the ball to Scott’s 6-foot-4 center, Lauren Tibbs. “They’re a good team,” said Grooms said. “We have to hit shots. We actually did a good job defending (Tibbs). We only gave up 46 points, eight of those in the

Mustang boys bid for state champs By Adam Turer

The Brossart Mustangs boys basketball team earned the Tenth Region All “A” Championship and will travel to Richmond to compete for the state championship beginning Jan. 28. The Mustangs won three games in four days in the regional tournament, defeating Paris, Bracken County, and Nicholas County by an average of 15 points per win. “One of our main goals in the regular season was to win this tournament and get to go down to Richmond,” said head coach Mike Code. The competition in the regional tournament was tough and it will only get tougher at the state tournament in Richmond. The Mustangs will need to win four games in four straight days to bring home the All “A” state title. The Mustangs open with Hazard at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28. “I thought this was the best All “A” Tenth Region group in my seven years,” said Code. “We drew a tough bracket up here and a tough bracket in Richmond.” The Mustangs have

already secured the top seed for the postseason district tournament. Brossart is in the midst of its second long winning streak of the season. The 14-2 Mustangs opened the season by winning their first eight games, then dropped their only two losses of the season before getting back on track and winning six in a row. The All “A” tournament is great preparation for the postseason. “Any time you get to play in a tournament like this it helps prepare you for the postseason atmosphere,” said Code. Freshman Justin Saunders and sophomore Zach Fardo have steadily progressed defensively to complement the upperclassmen in the Mustangs’ rotation. “Our young kids are really improving on defense,” said Code. “We are making a real good push in practice working on our defensive pressure.” Offensively, the Mustangs have been led by senior Jacob Rieger, but have had big games from his teammates. Fardo put up 27 points in the win over Bracken County. Senior Justin Morscher has given the team a spark

last two minutes. Defensively, we’re where we need to be.” Becca Kidney led Brossart with 12 points. Brossart averages 47 a game on offense. Seniors are Emily Sanker, Emily Schubert, Hannah Uthe, Anna Dischar and Jenna Bezold. Sanker, a starting guard, injured her left arm against

Scott and her status was unknown at press time. Brossart is off until Feb. 5 against Bracken County at home. Brossart, 2-2 in NKAC Division II play, closes that schedule at St. Henry Feb. 12.

Bowling season past halfway point By James Weber


Bishop Brossart senior guard Jordan Armstrong and his Mustang teammates will play in the All “A” state tournament this week in Richmond. over the last few weeks, said Code. Senior Jordan Armstrong is the team’s defensive leader and also the secondleading scorer. Code is pleased with the way his team has limited turnovers all season, but would like to see his team’s free throw shooting

improve. After the All “A” state tournament, the Mustangs host four of their final six regular season games. As always, defense will be the key to the Mustangs postseason success. “Defense has been the key for us for years,” said Code. “Our pressure defense is one of our staples.”

The bowling season is past the halfway point for Northern Kentucky schools. Teams have completed either seven or eight matches in the 12-week schedule. Seven points are awarded in each match, 84 for the season. Bowlers compete in four districts in each gender. The district champs qualify for the regional tournament. In boys’ action, district leaders are Boone County, Dixie Heights, Newport and Holy Cross. Campbell County, the 2009 state runner-up, is led Matthew Chalk at 193.7 (third in NKY). Tyler Losey, Austin Richardson Jake Harris and Trey Brun also average over 180. Newport beat Bishop Brossart 6-1 Jan. 21 in a key match in District 3. In girls’, Notre Dame, Campbell County and Scott are in a tight battle in District 2. Campbell and Scott meet this week at Southern Lanes in Alexandria. Campbell meets Notre Dame Feb. 4 and NDA and Scott square off Feb. 18. For the Camels, Brianne Vogelpohl (163.8), Sara DeMoss (162.4) and Erica Biddle (158.7) are all in the top six in Northern Kentucky.

Transparency needed in talks

President Barack Obama and the Democratic majority in Congress have spent nearly a year entirely focused on one goal: a costly government takeover of health care. On Christmas Eve, the Senate passed its deeply flawed version of health care “reform” (H.R. 3590) by a vote of 60-39. The House of Representatives passed Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s version of the bill (H.R. 3962) on Nov. 7. While substantial differences between the two versions of health care legislation remain, both rely on a combination of tax increases, Medicare cuts and a much larger role for the federal government in health care decisions. Sadly, both bills fail to truly reform our health care system or reduce cost. Negotiations are now under way between Democratic leadership in the House and the Senate to resolve the differences between the two bills. Although President Obama repeatedly promised to broadcast health care negotiations on C-SPAN for all Americans to see, Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have chosen once again to hide the health care debate behind closed doors. Pelosi pledged to lead the “most open and transparent Congress in history.” Despite her assurance, Democratic leaders have made a habit of rushing legislation to the House floor for a vote without allowing sufficient time for members of Congress or the American public to read and examine its contents. Case in point: last June, House Democrats forced a vote on their cap and trade legislation that would impose a sweeping national energy tax. The final text of the 1,201-page legislation was not released until 3:09 a.m. on the morning of the vote.

Rather than include the public in the discussion on the right way to improve our health care system, Democratic leaders seem more interested in U.S. Rep. pushing their peragenda for Geoff Davis sonal reform in secret. Community C-SPAN CEO Lamb Recorder Brian guest offered to provide medium for fulcolumnist afilling President Obama’s promise and sent a letter to Pelosi and Reid requesting they allow all health care negotiations to be broadcast live. You can view the C-SPAN letter at adedFiles/Cspan_letter.pdf. In addition to backing CSPAN’s request, I joined over 150 House Republicans in sponsoring a resolution (H. Res. 847) in support of public negotiations and meetings on health care legislation. In this time of record unemployment and economic recession, Americans have every right to be concerned about the true cost and implications of health care reform legislation. In order to successfully reform health care, we need to ensure that the final legislation is crafted in the open with input from members from both sides of the aisle. The people deserve the opportunity to know what is at stake and share their views with their elected representatives before the final vote on health care occurs. U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Hebron, is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Will you still watch American Idol after Simon Cowell leaves? “I did not watch it before he left. Why would I start now?” F.S.D. “Of course. I watch for the (wacky!) contestants, not Simon. I usually don’t watch until the end of the season, when there are about 8 contestants left who actually are talented, but I have caught a couple episodes already this season ... and boy is that funny!!! “Contrary to what Simon might think, his departure won’t be that devastating of a blow. It’ll be good with or without him. It’ll still be fun and entertaining ... and America will still have the (ultimate) vote at the finale, which is what matters on this show. “Pants on the ground ...” Joy K. “Yes, as long as Ellen stays!” N.H. “Yes, because it’s about the participants, not the judges. If you’ve watched the preliminary auditions, they’ve had various guest judges. “Simon has softened since he began. I think he’s become more

Next question For which team will you root in the Super Bowl? Why? Send your response to with “chatroom” in the subject line. human and is not as harsh or mean. It’s more interesting to have different judges than the same three all the time.” R.L.H. “I never could watch ‘American Idol’ in the first place. All it ever represented to me was the continued commoditization of what should be considered an art form. “It churns out a bunch of indistinguishable shapeshifters who perform songs the record company already owns so it won’t have to pay the performer royalties, but can still pay themselves an exorbitant amount of money in return. Which leaves the true originals and innovators out in the dust to fend for themselves.” N.A.B. “I never have watched ‘American Idol,’ so Cowell’s departure means nothing to me. Our household watches PBS almost exclusively, except for sporting events.” M.P.B.

Remebering MLK

The fourth-graders in Mrs. Webb’s class at St. Mary took some time to learn more about Martin Luther King using literacy circles. Each group read a different book about Martin Luther King and shared information with their classmates. Jessica King, Lydia Kramer, Jaclyn Fischesser, and Natalie Kyle are intrigued with the book “My Dream of Martin Luther King.”

Child support laws and regulations I was recently asked to do an article on child support law. Particularly, the question was can a person who is a minor, i.e. has not yet reached the age of majority, be required to pay child support. In Kentucky the age of majority is 18. It is probably best to start the discussion with some generalities concerning support. The law in Kentucky follows the same concepts as are generally held nationwide and that have developed from common law. It is generally understood that it is the biological or adopted parents who owe a duty to support their children. This obligation is not dependent on marriage, but on a moral and social obligation to support the children one has brought into the world. Our courts, like most throughout the nation, believe a child’s right to support is owed by a child’s parents and not the government. As such, Kentucky law has developed many provisions dealing with the obligation to pay child support and criminal charges and other remedies for failure to pay child support. Under Kentucky law, a person is guilty of criminal non-support when he persistently fails to provide support which he can reasonably provide and which he knows he has a duty to provide to his child or when he is delinquent in paying court ordered child support for at least two months. Non Support is a Class A Misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine and one year in jail. For a second offense, there is a minimum sentence of seven days in jail and for a third or subsequent offense a minimum sentence of 30 days in jail. A person is guilty of Flagrant Non Support when he persistently fails to pay support which he can reasonably provide and which he knows he has a duty to provide to a child and there is a child support arrearage of $1,000 or more or six consecutive months have elapsed without the payment of any sup-

port or failure to pay support has left the child in destitute circumstances. Criminal Flagrant Non Support is a Class D Felony with possible prison James A. time of one to five Daley years. As a side note, Community and to the surRecorder prise of many, guest Kentucky’s Crimicolumnist nal Non Support Laws also apply to a child 18 years of age or older residing in this state having a duty to provide support to a parent who is destitute of means of subsistence and unable because of old age, infirmity or illness to support himself or herself. The law in Kentucky also provides additional avenues to enable and to help collect child support through means other than filing criminal non support charges. Some of those means include withholding delinquent child support from Kentucky’s lottery winnings, from tax refunds, from tort claims against the state and from tobacco settlement agreement funds. That law also has provisions to suspend someone’s driver’s license if there is a six month child support arrearage and provides that the Cabinet for Families and Children can enforce a child support lien by the immobilization of a vehicle registered in the obligor’s name when there is at least a six month arrearage in child support. As to the question asked, yes, in Kentucky Judges often order persons who have not reached the age of majority (minors) to pay child support. This is not to say that a minor will automatically be required to pay support for their minor child. Judges have wide discretion in these matters and base their decisions on a wide variety of factors in the individual case and, as importantly, on the circumstances of the minor parent.

About guest columns

We welcome guest columns on all sides of an issue; however, potential columnists should reserve space in advance with Editor Michelle Shaw by calling 578-1053. Include with your column your name, address, daytime telephone number, and a twoto-three line biography outlining your expertise related to this topic. Either include a color headshot of yourself, or make arrangements when you call to have your photo taken here. We reserve the right to edit for length, accuracy and clarity. Columns may be no more than 500 words. Deadline: Noon Friday for next Thursday’s issue. E-mail: Letters, columns and articles submitted to The Community Recorder may be published or distributed in print, electronic or other forms. By way of example, if the minor parent is a full time high school student and doing relatively well, the Court may consider whether a part time or summer job is feasible for the minor parent. Some Judges set the statutory minimum of $60 per month for every case. If the minor parent is in the custody of the state, generally the Judge does not set any support. In our Campbell County Child Support Office, we will take application for services to set support against a minor parent. The procedures are a little different and generally, unless the minor is otherwise emancipated, the parents of the “minor parent” are involved in the action. I hope this information is interesting and helpful.

Senior games offer activity, socializing


By Amanda Joering Alley


Highlands High School Coach Dale Mueller directs quarterback Will Bardo during a game. Mueller was named the 2010 Russell Athletic National Coach of the Year.

Highlands coach receives national recognition For 16 years Dale Mueller has been coaching football at Highlands High School, teaching his players about football and beyond that, life. In honor of his commitment to the players and football program, Mueller received the 2010 Russell Athletic National Coach of the Year award at the Army All-American Bowl Coaches Academy banquet Friday, Jan. 8. “The entire Highlands community is so very proud of Coach Mueller,” said Highlands Principal Brian Robinson. “The positive impact he had made on the young men he coaches and mentors, as well as the school as a whole, is even more impressive than his win-loss record,” Robinson said. Mueller said while it was fun to be the one to accept

the award, credit goes not only to him, but to the rest of the coaching staff and the players, who play so well. “I consider this to be a team of the year award, and I’m proud to be part of this team,” Mueller said. “We’re just a small school in Kentucky and we’re ranked third in the country by USA Today.” Superintendent John Williamson said Mueller’s dedication reaches beyond just football. “What many may not know is that he is also just as strong an academic teacher in the classroom,” Williamson said. “He is one of our employees who truly has taken our tradition to the next level.” Along with coaching and serving as the district’s athletic director, Mueller also teaches science.

Old age isn’t keeping some northern Kentucky residents from getting out and being active. Dozens of senior citizens came together Thursday, Jan. 21 for the Northern Kentucky Senior Games Winter Edition at the Fort Thomas Armory. “I’ve been doing the senior games for nine or 10 years,” said 87-year-old Pat Collins. “It gives me chance to get out, stay active and socialize with other seniors in the area.” The half-day winter edition of the senior games differs in games and set-up from the spring edition, which runs from Monday, May 10 through Friday, May 14. The winter edition includes indoor events ranging from shuffle board and billiards to basketball and cup stacking. “The winter edition is primarily meant to offer seniors something to do in the winter time to get them

Chamber promotes free enterprise young audience initiative

Since the launch of the U.S. Chamber Campaign for Free Enterprise, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce has been making strides to support the principles of the campaign. Recently, the NKY Chamber and Education Alliance of Northern Kentucky have announced with Junior Achievement (JA) to implement Free Enterprise ideas in middle schools, as part of the Campaign’s Youth Initiative. The Free Enterprise Campaign’s goal is to educate Americans about the value of ingenuity in creating new jobs and the need to preserve the Free Enterprise system that makes the American econo-

my so unique. According to Gary Beatrice, President, Business Benefits, “In my mind we owe it to our country to instill in our young people an understanding and appreciation for this uniquely American trait; we owe it to our children and to our future generations to cultivate and develop our future entrepreneurs”. This partnership project plans to consist of up to 60 volunteers from the NKY Chamber Board and member companies who are willing to use the identified curriculum at area middle schools and present the message of Free Enterprise in late winter and early spring of this year. This partnership will not only help meet goals of the Free Enterprise Campaign, but also allow JA to reach and educate additional middle school students. If you are interested in being part of this effort, contact Amanda Dixon at for more information.

A marital lament: ‘You’re not the person I married’ Eventually, one spouse may lament to the other, “You’re not the person I married.” Actually, they never were. They were always somebody else, a stranger barely known years ago and known only a little better now. Some reasons for our partial knowledge of another person is the depth of their person and the psychological mysteries he or she carries there. Add to that the habits developed over years and our limited understanding and insights, and one can see why our conclusions of knowing another are vast understatements. Besides, when we’re young and the other person is popular, has a beautiful body, or an abundance of money – who cares about knowing them? There are other human tendencies that can obscure our knowing a person, even someone as close as a spouse. One tendency is that of projection. We project onto other persons faults or qualities we expect or think we see in them.

( A b r i d e believes she sees in her husb a n d some of h e r Father Lou f a t h e r ’ s Guntzelman characteristics, and Perspectives a groom thinks he sees in his bride characteristics of his mother.) Like a movie projector casts images on a screen some distance away, so we cast (project) suspected qualities or faults onto other people. Then we claim we know them. Actually, we may have placed in them some of the alleged characteristics we claim we see. Living together on a daily basis ever so gradually wears away these projections. The loss of our projections leaves our partner as she, or he, actually is. Where we wanted agreement, we may be called upon to accept differences; where we imagined we’d find the other half that makes us whole, we must now recognize that there is

rather a whole person other than me. And I must learn the difficult task of loving otherness. We can never love our partner’s otherness unless we have a good sense of what it is to be that person. After all, that’s the essence of growing through relationships, isn’t it? Joining my life with someone else’s is not just expecting more of me, but learning to care about, communicate with, and compromise with someone who is other than me. That’s the work of relationships that produce mature people and develop true love. Another tendency that prompts the complaint, “You’re not the person I married,” is the old illusion of the Magical Other. We are haunted in adulthood by the cozy nostalgia of infancy and childhood. So we continue to unconsciously look for a special person (termed the Magical Other) who will treat us with the positive parental care of earlier times. We look for someone who will give us whatever we need or want, who will

erase loneliness, make us the center of their life, tend to our pleasure, take away our fears, handle our responsibilities, and keep threatening ghosts out of our room. What a tall order! What an impossible order for another human being! How difficult it is for us to realize that whomever we draw close to is just another human like us. In fact, they are also projecting and looking for their Magical Other – whom, by the way, they think might be you. Partners certainly can ask each other for love, support, understanding and forgiveness. But he or she is not my rescuer, nor my enemy, but my partner. In one way, it’s a step forward to realize, “You’re not the person I married.” The one we married was originally an impressionistic painting. He or she was painted with tones of infatuation, illusion, desire and a touch of naiveté. Hopefully much of that has washed off. Now it’s time to say, “I don’t see you any longer as my mother or father, or as my Magical Other to rescue

me from the challenges of life, or the one to serve me as I was taken care of as a child. “I still choose you as my partner. Let us continue together as adults to learn more of each other and this wonderful mystery of relational love and life.”

Chili, chowder to chase the cold away

We ate the perfect breakfast today: homemade goetta and fresh eggs from “the girls” – my chickens. After years of making goetta and trying to replicate my Germ a n mother-inl a w ’ s recipe, which was Rita so simple Heikenfeld ( p o r k shoulder, Rita’s kitchen o n i o n s , celery, bay leaf, pinhead oats, salt and pepper) it dawned on me that the reason hers was so good was that they slaughtered their own pigs for the goetta, and I am sure that pork shoulder had a nice layer of fat. Well, I found fresh pork shoulder with WOW, a nice layer of fat and used it for goetta (I also added hot sausage and some seasonings). Now I know what you’re

thinking: fat is bad, but it wasn’t that much and boy, did it add flavor. The consensus from my family is it’s the best I’ve ever made. My son, Shane, was scooping it out of the pot and putting it directly on bread. Look for a column soon just on goetta. It’s that popular. And if you have a goetta recipe to share, please do.

Steak & Shake chili clone for the crockpot

For Robin Haboush from Montgomery reader John Augustin. “This recipe comes close,” he said.

2 tablespoons oil 11⁄2 pounds ground beef 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 1 can onion soup 1 tablespoon chili powder 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 ⁄2 teaspoon black pepper 2 teaspoons cocoa 2 cans kidney beans, drained 6 oz. tomato paste

8 oz. tomato sauce 1 cup cola (your choice)

Brown ground beef with salt in oil. Put soup in blender, blend for one minute. Drain beef. Add everything to crock pot. Let simmer on low for six hours or on high for two hours.

Chuck wagon chowder

For Kathy Telscher’s friend who is ill and who wanted a chuck wagon chowder recipe from Central High School in the 1960s. “He sure will appreciate it if it turns out like he remembers,” she said. This one may work. 11⁄2 pounds ground sirloin or round 1 ⁄2 cup onion, diced very fine 10-16 oz frozen peas, thawed 3 cans, 14.5 oz. each, diced tomatoes, undrained 5-6 cups tomato juice (or V-8) 1 pound wide egg noodles

1 teaspoon dry basil Salt and pepper to taste 2 generous cups shredded cheese (I’m thinking it was either cheddar or American)

Cook beef with onion until meat is done. Drain if necessary. Stir in peas, tomatoes and 5 cups juice. Stir in noodles and seasonings. Cover and cook for 15 minutes, and stir several times. Turn heat to simmer and cook about 15 minutes longer until noodles are done. If mixture starts looking dry, add a cup of tomato juice. Sprinkle cheese on top and the heat from the chowder will melt the cheese.

Sophisticated grilled cheese

Not your ordinary sandwich. We love these.

Mix together:

1 cup each: shredded

Swiss and cheddar 1 ⁄3 cup mayonaise 1 tablespoon each: yellow mustard and chopped green or red onion

Spread on bread and grill in butter. Makes four sandwiches.

Thomas More students to volunteer tax help Thomas More College Accountancy majors will once again be participating in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) at locations in downtown Covington. This marks the 29th year that Thomas More students have participated in the activity. Students spend Sunday afternoons assisting low income and senior individuals in the preparation of their federal, state and local tax returns during the months of January, February and March. All students have completed at least one course in taxation, and there is some faculty supervision on site. Many of the students have already developed some proficiency in tax preparation while working at area CPA firms, as part of the Co-operative Education Program at Thomas More. Several of the volunteers are in their third year of involvement with the community service activity. “We are very grateful for the commitment and service that so many Thomas More students and faculty have provided to the Center for Great Neighborhoods for so many years,” Executive Director of the Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington Tom DiBello said. The VITA program helps students to understand “responsibility to others” and “social responsibility” addressed in the college’s mission statement. Students will be at the Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington, located at 1650 Russell Street, Jan. 31, Feb. 14, Feb. 28, March 14 and March 28 from 1 to 3 p.m. For more information on Thomas More, visit

Winter weather safety for seniors recommended From the Kenton County Extension Services Winter weather emergencies can be difficult for many older Kentuckians. Senior citizens should consider safety concerns, including falling, hypothermia and frost bite, before venturing out in bad weather. Many seniors have medical conditions that require treatment. They may run low on medicine or have no way to get to their family doctor. In the event of a medical emergency, call 911 first. Some pharmacies may deliver medications, even in bad weather. Call your pharmacist or physician with questions about medications. When ice and snow is on the ground, older adults who go outside should practice extreme caution. Roads, sidewalks and steps could be slick and hazardous. If you have to venture outdoors, try to avoid walking on icy or snow covered sidewalks. Wear boots with non-skid soles and keep your driveway, sidewalks and front steps shoveled and salted to help prevent falls. Those with a heart condition, osteoporosis or trouble with balance may want to hire someone to shovel for them as these conditions can be aggravated by overexertion. If you have to drive, make sure your car is winterized with antifreeze, good tires and windshield wipers. Check weather reports before leaving and try to avoid icy roads, overpasses and bridges. Drive slow and

with extreme caution. If you have a cell phone, take it with you and be sure to tell a family member or neighbor where you are going. Carry emergency supplies, including a first aid kit, blankets, extra clothes, boots, windshield scrapers, sandbags, jumper cables, water, dried food and a flashlight. If possible, avoid driving altogether and rely on a family member, friend or neighbor to help you. Extremely cold temperatures increase the chances of hypothermia and frost bite. Know the warning signs. Warning signs of hypothermia include shivering; cold, pale or ashy skin; feeling tired, confused or sleepy; feeling weak; problems walking; slowed breathing or heart rate. Frost bite warning signs include discolored skin including red, white, ashy or grayish-yellow. The skin may also feel waxy or numb. If you experience any of these conditions, seek medical attention immediately. It is best for older adults to stay indoors at a temperature of at least 65 degrees, but if you must go outside, be sure to wear several loose-fitting layers of thin clothing along with a hat, gloves, coat, boots and scarf, and do not stay in the cold or wind for very long. Shivering is a warning sign the body is losing heat. If you start to shiver, go inside! Keeping warm inside the

house can be hazardous too. Fireplaces and wood and gas stoves must be properly ventilated to prevent dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide, a deadly gas that cannot be seen or smelled, from leaking. Kerosene and electric heaters are also potential fire hazards. Be sure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors work properly, and have your fireplace and wood stove chimneys inspected. Crack a window when using a kerosene

heater, and keep space heaters at least 3 feet away from objects. Keep a working fire extinguisher in the home, and never heat a home with a gas stove, charcoal grill, or other item not intended for home heating. Winter weather can be extremely hazardous and challenging for older adults. Community members, neighbors and loved ones should be sensitive to their needs, especially if their area loses electricity.



stronger, those diseases can be avoided," Heavin said. "It's important that women make their health a priority, and we are here to help every step of the way. We challenge women to take charge of their lives: live better, longer, healthier and with more confidence." With the campaign comes a "join now and get 30 days free" promotion to get women on the bandwagon of getting healthy. "Our existing members in the Florence area community have demonstrated that they are committed to improving their health by joining our programs; we want to use that confidence as an example for other women to also make that commitment," Heavin added. "It just takes that first step to get the cycle

going, and that could be joining a regular exercise program like Curves, being informed of health topics, or listening to success stories to inspire you to stay focused. We are excited to help make women stronger in our own communities, as well as throughout the world, with this campaign!" Studies have shown that regular exercise has longlasting benefits to health.

Curves locations in the Florence area will be joining other Curves facilities throughout the world this January in a company-wide campaign called Stronger + Together, an international movement to make one million women healthier in 2010. The program will rely heavily on women sharing their success stories and providing confidence and inspiration to others. The heart of the program lives online at, where women can find useful information about the new campaign, register for the campaign to join the cause, share their personal stories about how they were able to start a healthier lifestyle, and find a myriad of useful tools, such as easy-to-send emails designed for women to send messages of inspiration to loved ones and the option to create a personal profile to promote their story on the Web site. According to Curves Founder Diane Heavin, a strong component of Curves' new campaign is that if one woman is able to share her strength in wanting to improve her health, she can help another woman gain confidence, become fit, discover focus and avoid disease. "By making your own health a priority, you become a strong link in the chain and have the power to affect those around you," she said. "We decided to take on this new, ground-breaking challenge because there are so many women out there suffering from preventable diseases. If we can get just a million women focused on getting healthier and

White Castle shows love on Valentine’s Day Craving a little romance this Valentine’s Day? Reserve a steamy date at your local White Castle restaurant. Sunday, Feb. 14, you and your valentine can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner complete with special menus, tableside service and themed decorations. Hours vary by location, and reservations are required. Visit for reservation details and telephone numbers. “Since we first offered reserved Valentine’s Day seating in 1991, this has become an annual tradition for many couples,” said Jamie Richardson, vice president of corporate relations. “It’s been a huge hit because a lot of our loyal cus-

tomers, fondly known as ‘Cravers,’ either met in a White Castle restaurant or have other enjoyable memories they like to celebrate here.” This year, White Castle will make Valentine’s Day truly unforgettable by snapping a complimentary digital photo of each couple that can be viewed later from

the White Castle Web site. White Castle expects demand for reservations to be even greater this year as Americans continue to seek ways to get more romance for less cash. “At White Castle, you can indulge your special someone’s craving for a romantic dinner without breaking your budget,” Richardson said. He noted that

Sack Meal No. 3 provides dinner for two, complete with 10 of the distinctive Slyder hamburgers, two 21-ounce soft drinks and two regular French fries, for as little as $10.49. “It’s just one example of the value we’ve offered customers since we began selling our famous steam-grilled hamburgers for a nickel in 1921.”

Veterans urged to tell their stories

FRANKFORT – If you are an active duty member of the military, a veteran, a National Guardsman, a reservist or a civilian who has a story about the homefront, the Kentucky Oral History Commission (KOHC) wants to hear your story. The KOHC, administered by the Kentucky Historical Society, invites veterans and others with militaryrelated stories to preserve their piece of history. Participants can visit the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort to interview with trained KHS volunteers. Interviews will be recorded and take about one hour. Participants will be sent a CD of their interview and will receive free admission for that day for the entire KHS history campus, which includes the Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum at the Old State Arsenal. KOHC is soliciting these personal accounts as part of a new KHS exhibition,

behind the artifacts and lends a voice, literally with the use of oral history, to the historical record. By sharing the audio of these interviews we can hear the emotion and better understand the reality of what it means to be in or associated with the United States Military. “ The KOHC invites anyone with a military-related story to participate, especially individuals with experience in recent or current conflicts. “We want the military collection to truly represent all Kentuckians’ experiences in the military,” said Milligan. “We welcome all stories, but especially need to hear the stories of veterans from the Korean War, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and current wars and engagements, and the stories of women and minorities.” To make an appointment to share your story with the KOHC, contact Milligan at 502-564-1792, ext.4434 or email her at

“Kentucky Military Treasures: Selections from the Kentucky Historical Society Collections.” The exhibition tells the stories of Kentuckians who fought in battles spanning nearly 200 years and includes significant artifacts from conflicts ranging from the War of 1812 to more recent engagements in Afghanistan and Iraq. The exhibition is on display in the Keeneland Changing Exhibits Gallery at the Center for Kentucky History. It was made possible by generous support from the Kentucky Historical Society Foundation, Martin F. Schmidt, Tawani Foundation and the Kentucky Department of Military Affairs. “By documenting the oral history of our state’s military story, we can more intentionally add all levels of experience to the record of official history,” said Sarah Milligan, program administrator for the KOHC. “The ‘Kentucky Military Treasures’ exhibition is so interesting because it tells the story of the people

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.

HEALTH CARE BILLS ARE INCURABLY FLAWED “Seriously flawed” is how the Family Research Council described both the Senate and House bills, since both, besides funding abortion, “still allow rationing of health care for seniors, raise health costs for families, mandate that families purchase under threat of fines and penalties, offer counsel about assisted suicide in some states, do not offer broad conscience protections for health care workers, and seek to insert the federal government into all aspects of citizens’ lives.” “…thehealthcarebillisfatallyflawedandassuchcannotbesupported,” writes Bishop RobertVasa of Baker, Oregon. Bishop R. Walter Nickless of Sioux City, Iowa, warned: “First and most important, the Church will not accept any legislation that mandates coverage, public or private, for abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem-cell research. …As a corollary of this, we insist equally on adequate protection of individual rights of conscience for patients and health care providers not to be made complicit in these evils. … A so-called reform that imposes these evils on us would be far worse than keeping the health care system we now have.” All of the pending bills have been uniformly condemned by all serious pro-lifers, including the Catholic Medical Association, Focus on the Family, the Christian Medical and Dental Association, the Southern Baptist Convention, Family Research Council, and numerous individual bishops throughout the United States. A fuller exposition of the reasons for objection by serious pro-lifers can be found at Abortion Funding Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia, who chairs the U.S. Bishops’ SecretariatofPro-LifeActivities,stated: “Bywhatright,then,andbywhat precedent, would Congress make abortion coverage into a nationwide norm, or force Americans to subsidize it as a condition for participating in a public health program?” The Cardinal concluded that the current legislation being proposed was “not acceptable.” In the House version, even with the Stupak Amendment, “Abortions are covered through private plans…The bill also requires the existence of at least one insurance plan that covers abortion ‘services’ in each state.Tax dollarsmaynotfundabortionsunderprivateinsurance,butthoseprivate planparticipantsarepayingforabortionthroughtheirpremiums,”points out American Life League, an uncompromising pro-life organization. Subsidiarity Even assuming that the moral deficits in both the House and Senate bills could be remedied, which is impossible, there remains yet another very serious problem with the legislation. The introduction of the wholesale takeover of the health care system by the federal government is in violation of the principle of the doctrine of subsidiarity, supported in Christianethicsaswellasinsoundpoliticalphilosophy. Thislongstanding doctrine of subsidiarity teaches quite clearly of the dangers of excessive governmental intervention. Subsidiarity is a basic principle of Catholic social teaching, and was again explained by Pope John Paul II in 1991 in his encyclical Centesimus Annus: “A community of higher order should not interfere in the internal life of a community of a lower order, depriving the [lower] of its functions, but rather should support it in case of need and help to coordinate its activity with the activities of the rest of society.” InadocumentissuedjointlybyMostRev.JohnF.Naumann,Archbishop ofKansasCity,KS,andMostRev.RobertW.Finn,BishopofKansasCitySt. Joseph, MO, this danger was pointed out clearly: “The writings of recent Popes have warned that the neglect of subsidiarity can lead to an excessive centralization of human services, which in turn leads to excessive costs, and loss of personal responsibility and quality of care. …diminishing personal responsibility or creating an inordinately bureaucratic structure which will be vulnerable to financial abuse, be crippling to our national economy, and remove the sense of humanity from the work of healing and helping the sick.” Even assuming that we were able to secure clear language protecting against abortion funding, euthanasia counseling, health care rationing, denial of conscience rights, etc., those in charge of implementing this legislation have made their pro-death inclinations abundantly clear, and would have great authority to corrupt what otherwise might be thought to be clear and incorruptible language of the legislation. This administration, or future ones, having put the feet of this nation on this disastrous path of government-operated health care, would certainlyfindthispowerandcontrolintoxicatingandwouldbeunableto resist further advances in these dangerous policies.
