Alexandria mayor ramps up skatepark talk by proposing youth center By Amy Scalf ascalf@communitypress.com

Hunt, cold a double shot to A.J. Jolly Park geese By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@communitypress.com

Ryan Phirman brought his 12-year-old daughter Hannah with him to the first-ever Canada goose hunt at A.J. Jolly Park in January. The county allowed11weekdays of geese hunting between Jan. 6-30 at the Campbell County park south of Alexandria. Phirman, who grew up on Race Track Road across from the park and now lives in Fos-

ter, said he hopes next year Hannah can join in the hunt beyond being a spectator. Campbell County limited the hunt to adults age 18 and older. “Hannah got to hear us call and see what it’s all about, and we actually got to harvest three geese,” he said. Phirman said he, Hannah, and his brother Randy Phirman set up in the beach hunting zone on Jan. 20. “A.J. Jolly, it was a safe, close place that I could take my

daughter with me,” he said. Phirman said allowing youths to participate with their parents in a hunt next year and having the hunt over school winter break in December are ideas he has shared with the hunt’s organizers. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said if there is interest in having another hunt next year it’s likely the county will allow it again. See HUNT, Page A2

ALEXANDRIA — City leaders and skateboard enthusiasts have ideas on deck for a skatepark, but they’re not ready to kick off just yet. More than a dozen skaters attended the March 12 Alexandria Park and Recreation Board meeting. Park Board Chairman Jeremy Toy said he Rachford was impressed with the teens’ turnout and the research they gathered about insurance and equipment needs for a potential skatepark, which would also accommodate bicycle motorcross. He recommended they create a smaller committee that would continue to look at funding new equipment. According to Mayor Bill Rachford, skateboarders and city leaders previously had discussed an open outdoor park, but they have begun considering

an alternative. “We can extend it, and look into building a youth center that has a skatepark in it,” he said. Building a skating facility in an enclosed building would allow the city to control access and add security measures and supervision, as well as other activities for young people. “I think it’s something the city would like to do. There’s not much for people their age to do in the city,” said Rachford. “There’s nothing in our budget for it.” Rachford wanted the teens to find funding sources, and said the city could help create a public/private partnership in order to build the facility. Business leader and property owner Barry Jolly, who owns the Jolly Town Center at a former car dealership on Alexandria Pike where the skateboarders skate, has been involved in the skatepark discussions, but hasn’t made any commitments to building the proposed youth center or contributing property.

Campbell schools want to get out earlier By Chris Mayhew

cmayhew@communitypress.com

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County Schools Superintendent Glen A. Miller wants to skip making up two of the district’s 13 missed days to have high school graduation the weekend of June 6-8. The district’s last day of school is scheduled for Tuesday, June 10. During a special March 12 Board of Education meeting, Miller said he wants the last day to be Friday, June 6. Deciding to end the school year earlier is not up to the

board alone, he said. School districts are seeking passage of House Bill 410 in the Kentucky General Assembly which would Mason allow schools to not have to make up 10 missed days of classes. “It would be my intent to request only two or three days so that the last day for students and graduation could occur at the end of the first week of June,” Miller said. House Bill 410 cleared the House March 14 and awaits

consideration in the state Senate. “I feel fairly good that this is going to happen,” he said. Miller said the board will Miller have a special meeting either Thursday, March 20, or Friday, March 21, to make a decision about whether to end school for students earlier than June 10. Kentucky requires schools to have 1,062 hours of instruction over no less than 170 days. The district middle school and high school will exceed those

requirements even if June 6 is the last day of classes, Miller said. The district’s calendar for the 2013-2014 school year included 173 instructional days, and ending school June 6 will put the district at 171 instructional days. The original schedule was: » Aug. 14: First day for students. » May 21: Last day for students without any needed makeup days. » June 5: Last day for students with the 10 built-in makeup days in the district calendar. » June 10: Last day for students if all 13 missed days have

Veterans’ service in war, at home honored

Nancy Daly, ndaly@communitypress.com

Northern Kentucky veterans were among those honored in Frankfort Wednesday as part of the inaugural class of the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame. They ranged from Lee Frakes of Walton, whose B-17 was shot down during World War II, to Brandon Bailey of Florence, who almost lost his life in a bomb explosion in Afghanistan in 2009. Both men are Purple Heart honorees. And both have spent their civilian lives doing what they can to help members of the military, especially those affected by war. Frakes founded the Walton Veterans Memorial. Bailey, now five years into a once-doubtful recovery, is traveling as a speaker on behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project and the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame.

The man behind the state hall of fame is H.B. Deatherage, a Vietnam War veteran and businessman involved with veterans’ projects throughout Northern Kentucky. Deatherage worked for two years forming the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame along with Lorene Friedman of the Blue Star Mothers, Florence businessman Don Castle and Burlington retired educator Gary Griesser. As he had done decades earlier founding the Boone County Veterans Memorial in Florence, Deatherage shepherded the detail work – getting nonprofit status, drafting criteria for hall of fame membership, lobbying legislators in Frankfort – to make last week’s induction ceremony possible. On Wednesday, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes greeted and helped honor the inaugural class of the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame.

Participating in the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame induction ceremony Wednesday in Frankfort are, from left, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes; Chief Warrant Officer 4 Raymond L. Christopher, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army; and Dr. G. Edward Hughes, president, Gateway Community and Technical College. PROVIDED

The organization inducted 27 veterans into the hall of fame in a ceremony at Frankfort’s Capital Plaza Hotel. “As secretary of state, I have been a committed advocate for our military – both active-duty members and veterans,” said Grimes. “Today, I was proud to present these distinguished inductees their

hall of fame medallions as we recognized them for their accomplishments both on and beyond the battlefield.” The inaugural class represents service in five foreign conflicts and more than 200 years of combined military service. Seven of the veterans earned Purple Heart medals. Four men induct-

Fort Thomas native Jamie Baker, 29, has been nominated as a candidate to be the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year for 2014. Baker, who lives in West Chester, Ohio, is a chemical engineer for General Electric in Day-

Insurance, according to Rachford, would be covered by the same city policy that covers parks and playgrounds. “As long as it’s owned by the city, or leased by the city, it will be under our same municipal liability coverage,” said City Clerk Karen Barto. “The only time it would be additional cost is depending on the ramp height, other-

wise, it’s covered by the same cost as our current park.” She said she wasn’t sure if the policy or premium would change if the park was enclosed, as opposed to an outdoor park. “Insurance isn’t a significant issue. The more important part is can we actually do this,” said Rachford. During the meeting, he

told the skateboarders, “You work on your fundraising, and we’ll work on the rest of it.” Rex Herald, one of the skatepark advocates, said, “If we need $15,000, I’m pretty sure we can raise that. We’ve got almost 7,000 likes on our Facebook page.” “More likes than the city,” said Chris Mardis, who has led the campaign.

Hunt

the hunt once it got started. He received one complaint objecting to the hunt before it started. “I think for the most part people understand why we we’re doing it,” Sorrell said. The reason for the hunt was to improve the water quality of the lake by cutting down on the amount of geese feces, Sorrell said. The Jolly Park Community Development Council is working with the county to allow grass at some spots around the lake to grow taller to make it a less inviting habitat for geese, Sorrell said. Laser pointers have been issued Sorrell and to two county park employees – Mike W. Mullen, recreation maintenance foreman for the county, and Steve Myers, the superintendent of the golf course – to scare flocks of birds away from the lake. Mullen said he will use the laser at the beach, and Myers will be on the golf course. “Between the two of us I guess we will be aggravating them enough to get out of here for a little bit,” Mullen said.

“They’re good kids. They’re in my parking lots skating anyway. It would be nice if we could get them someplace safe,” said Jolly. “I want to do something to help, but, at this point, I’m not sure what that will be.”

Larry Harrod, recreation manager for the county, said he likes the idea of allowing youths to hunt with supervision if there is a hunt next year. The sound of gunfire and the freezing of the 200-acre lake combined to scare most of the geese off – for now, Harrod said. About 20 geese were killed and harvested by hunters, Harrod said. The county set up 33 opportunities for hunting, with up to three hunters per opportunity; 16 groups canceled. “When it got down to zero (degrees) or so one of the sites we allocated was depending on the lake not freezing solid, which it did,” said Don Sorrell, Campbell County extension agent for agriculture and natural resources. The geese population at the start of January was more than 500, Sorrell said. About 50 geese were counted around the lake in the days immediately after the hunt. Sorrell said he knows of no complaints or issues experienced because of

Long journey leads Camels to Sweet 16 By James Weber jweber@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — The players on the Campbell County High School boys basketball team were little the last time the Camels brought home a regional championship in the boys tournament. That year was 2001, and 13 years later, this year’s Camels are taking a long-awaited basketball odyssey of their own as they play in the Kentucky Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena. While the Camels practiced for their opening-round opponent, Johnson Central, they enjoyed the spoils of being the toasts of the town. Even the presence of film crews from the star-studded movie “Carol” at Alexandria’s Spare-Time Grill during the week – and a confirmed Cincinnati Enquirer on-set sighting of Sarah Paulson, recently from Best Picture winner “12 Years a Slave” – couldn’t take away from the glare of the basketball spotlight. “The past few days have

been great,” said senior guard Corey Holbrook. “We had a police escort back to the county line (after the regional final) and then the school, then when we got back there we had pizza and celebrated with our friends and family.” Said sophomore center Matt Wilson: “It’s crazy. We’ve got the whole town up and they’re all excited for us. You walk down the halls, everyone pats you on the back and tells you good job.” The Camels were set to play Johnson Central March19 in the first round after Recorder print deadlines. The next round would be 1:30 p.m. Friday, then the semifinals Saturday night. “I’m excited,” said junior guard De’Ondre Jackson. “It’s a beautiful place and we’re going to have a great crowd behind us. We’re going to go out there and play like it’s a normal game.” The Camels went to Lexington under the guidance of Aric Russell, a Campbell County alumnus who took Newport to the Sweet 16 in 2010. He is in his fourth year at his alma mater.

“I’m just really happy,” he said. “These are the kids I came in with, when Corey and the other seniors were freshmen. Having the opportunity to take them to Rupp their senior year is a blessing.” The Camels took a 21-8 record and six-game winning streak into the state tourney. Jackson averages 18.1 points per game and has made 45 3pointers. Holbrook posts 16.2 points a game and has made 47 treys. Wilson averages a double-double with 13.1 points and 10.5 boards a contest. “Corey has just been huge,” Russell said. “He has really stepped up and played a leadership role. He is shooting the ball extremely well and more than that, he’s getting everybody involved. If De’Ondre scores more points than him, he doesn’t care. He just wants to win. That’s what you want from a senior, and we’re going to miss him.” Said Holbrook: “At the beginning of the year, we started off a little rough and throughout the year we started improving

and we started clicking at the right time. We just kept on winning.” The Camels picked up their defense during the winning streak. After allowing 89, 87 and 72 during a three-game losing skid in late February, the Camels have allowed just 51.5 points a contest in the next six wins. “We picked up our defense,” Russell said. “All year, we tried to rely on Matt to get the rebounds. I told these guys you can’t do that. Some of the other guys picked up some of the rebounding. That was our weakness all year long and now it’s become a strength.” Russell planned to use his recent Rupp Arena experience to help the Camels. “I told them we need to get in there, get acclimated to the surroundings,” he said. “They’re going to be nervous right off the bat but I said to relax and enjoy it. I want them to enjoy it and not think too much.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

BOWLING GREEN — The ending wasn’t what she wanted, but Nicole Kiernan fought hard until the end, making the final two shots of her highschool career, which ended March 12. Kiernan, a Newport Central Catholic High School, senior and her girls basketball teammates ended their run in the KHSAA Sweet 16 that night. NCC fell 54-52 to Louisville Butler, the second-ranked team in the state. NCC ended with a 29-5 record. “I told them how proud of them I was,” NCC head coach George Stoll said. “It’s tough. There’s one team in the state that goes home happy and goes home with a win. They’re No. 2 in the state for a reason. We knew this game was going to be tough. We gave them a run for thei rmonety and we battled them tough the entire way. I’m very proud of these girls.” In her final game as a Thoroughbred, Kiernan had 19 points and 15 rebounds in her final contest, ending her career with 1,869 points and 1,139 rebounds. Kiernan, the Ninth Region player of the year, was the team’s leading scorer all

four of her seasons. She led the team to the Sweet 16 as a freshman in 2011, a run which also ended in tough fashion in overtime loss to Calloway County. “Nikki obviously means a lot,” Stoll said. “We’re going to miss her. She has meant so much to our program. There

aren’t many players in the state who have led their team in scoring all four years. She was fortunate enough to come down here her freshman year and I’m so glad that she’s been able to come back down here.” Kiernan averaged 16.7 points per game this season,

and pulled down 10 rebounds a contest. Junior Alexus Mayes averaged 9.8 a contest. Junior guard Michaela Ware posted 7.4 points a contest, and Stephanie Lewis and Ansley Davenport posted six a game. Sarah Neace averaged four points a game and led the team with 37 three-pointers, and Loren Zimmerman also averaged four a contest.

Elite Eight loss doesn’t define TMC women’s hoops season By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

One play may have derailed the championship hopes and dreams of Thomas More College’s women’s basketball team, but that one play does not come close to defining a record-breaking season. Thomas More advanced to the Division III Elite Eight for the first time in program history and came up three wins short of a national title. The top-ranked team entering the tournament lost on the road to host Whitman College, 76-60, in the regional final in Walla Walla, Wash., March 15, after star sophomore Sydney Moss (Boone County) exited with a knee injury 12:36 into the game. “A lot of it is luck,” head coach Jeff Hans said. “You’ve got to stay healthy. You never know what’s going to happen.

You need luck on your side, and unfortunately for us, it wasn’t on Saturday night.” The Saints used their signature tenacious defense and balanced scoring attack to make a late first half run in the regional semifinal victory over Texas-Tyler on March 14. That spurt keyed the Saints to a 73-61 victory and program history. The 31 victories are a singleseason program record. “I’m so proud of my team and everything we accomplished together,” said senior guard Katie Kitchen (Campbell County). “It’s been incredible and I’ve loved every second of it. I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.” The following night, the Saints appeared to be on their way to making another late first half run. Strong post play and an imposing home crowd

helped Whitman, the previously top-ranked team in the nation, go toe-to-toe with Thomas More. Then, Moss caught a beautiful outlet pass from Jenny Burgoyne just past halfcourt and was en route to a breakaway layup to give the Saints the lead. Moss was fouled hard as she went up, and had to be

helped off the court. She spent the rest of the game in the locker room or on the Saints bench with an icepack wrapped around her knee. The team chemistry and family-like bonds shared by the Saints came back to hurt them when Moss went down with a season-ending injury. Three other players on the roster, including Kitchen, twice, had dealt with severe knee injuries. Seeing their fallen teammate, even after she returned to the bench to encourage her team, had a major effect on the roster. “That’s something you can’t prepare yourself for. It did a lot to us emotionally,” said Kitchen. “We played the rest of the game pretty much in shock.” Moss was not the only record breaker on the team this season. Senior guard Devin Beasley set game, season, and career

With a healthy roster next season and another strong incoming group of freshmen, the Saints will once again be among the national title favorites. “The program has a very bright future. It just wasn’t meant to be this year,” said Kitchen. “They have every shot to do it again and go even further next year.”

The individual accomplishments were a direct result of uncanny teamwork. “This is the best group I’ve ever coached as far as they love playing for each other,” said Hans. “They were more excited for assists than scoring themselves. That breeds success.” After overcoming two knee injuries and graduating, Kitchen could have moved on. Instead, she decided to play one more season and take advantage of her fifth year of eligibility.

County aids with support enforcement There are many provisions under Kentucky law that addresses the obligation to pay child support and several remedies for failure to pay child support including criminal charges. The potential criminal charges available are memorialized in Kentucky Revised Statute 530.050. 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

Moreover, there is a felony criminal charge for non-support called Flagrant Non Support. A person is guilty of Flagrant Non Support when he

persistently fails to pay support, which he can reasonably provide and has a duty to provide, and the failure results in: (i) a child support arrearage of at least $1,000; (ii) six consecutive months elapsing without the payment of any support; or (iii) leaving the child in destitute circumstances. Criminal Flagrant Non Support is a Class D felony with a potential prison sentence of one to five years. To the surprise of many, Kentucky’s Criminal 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. Other than filing criminal charges, there are also other means by which to collect child support to include withholding delinquent child support from Kentucky’s lottery winnings, tax refunds, and wage garnishments. The law also allows for someone’s driver’s license to be suspended along with a lien on a registered vehicle when a person is at least six months behind in child support payments.

ALEXANDRIA’S JEWELL

Born in 1808 in Bourbon County, Mary Beckley Bristow lived much of her life in Boone County, dying in Kenton County in 1890 at the age of 81. Her diary, kept from 1858 to 1871, is one of the few firstperson records of daily life in 19th century Boone County. She was very religious and her observations were made through the eyes of one well versed in the scriptures and church-going. Many of her family members bore the names of wellknown preachers of the day. She was a Baptist and regularly attended church. Neil Allen Bristow, a descendent of Mary’s, has transcribed her diaries and notes that “Mary was well educated, able to quote Alexander Pope and St. Augustine, and her writing displays a familiarity with history unusual for her time.” Mr. Bristow also observed that “(Mary’s) household included slaves. In Mary’s mind

foods, spun thread, wove cloth and kept house. The typical farm then was heavily involved in raising corn, hogs for the market, sheep for the wool and mutton and little was bought by Mary’s family from the nearby general store in Union. More serious visiting was done in those times ... featuring over-night stays and sometimes for extended periods. Beyond that, the weekly visits to church provided most of their social life. While the farming was left up to her brother, Mary tended the renting of her slaves to neighbors and kept her own accounts. During the Civil War, Mary loaned one of her slaves who was conscripted into the Union Army her horse and buggy to get to Covington’s induction center, not knowing if she’d ever see any of them again. When the 13th Amendment (Dec. 6, 1865) ended slavery, Mary wrote that “Congress has

at last freed all the negroes. I am by this act of theirs left almost wholly dependent.” Mary’s letters to friends and family give real insight into the daily life of a southern oriented Boone County household of that time. Particularly painful was the Civil War which Mary viewed as a war against all she was raised to believe in and her way of life. She lost relatives dear to her who enlisted in the southern cause. Margaret Mitchell described it in her epic book and the movie: “Gone with the Wind.” To learn more about Mary Beckley Bristow and read her diaries and letters, visit the Boone County Public Library’s “Chronicles of Boone County” online at www.bcpl.org/cbc/doku.php. Tom Schiffer is a member of the Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board.

The Senate continued work last week, and recognized an historic event. On Wednesday, March 5, many lawmakers joined thousands of Kentuckians gathered along Capitol Avenue to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Frankfort led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It was a cold and blustery March 5, 1964, when Dr. King, along with 10,000 others, marched up to the front door of our capital in support of the Damon Kentucky Civil Thayor Rights Act. COMMUNITY Regarding RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST the work on the floor, Senate Bill 81 passed our chamber this week, and generated a lot of discussion. The bill would define terms regarding employment, specifically “contractor,” “person,” “prime contractor” and “subcontractor.” Under the bill, any person determined to be independent contractor is not eligible for employee benefits or wages. It would also allow for an appeal process to circuit court in the county where the person resides or where the person has a principal office. Two bills regarding the concealed carry deadly weapon (CCDW) license process also received passage this week. Senate Bill 100 speeds up CCDW licensing by a simple measure; allowing electronic applications for licenses and renewals. This will take advantage of modern technology and make the licensing process more efficient. The convenience of the electronic application will cost the applicant $10 more, but if the applicant does not want to pay that, the paper application is available at the current cost. Damon Thayer represents the 17th Senate District which includes southern Kenton County, as well as all of Grant and Scott Counties.

NKY Has Talent video contest By Amy Scalf

ascalf@communitypress.com

The Northern Kentucky Education Council knows one thing for sure: NKY Has Talent. The video talent competition featured students from throughout Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties demonstrating their career-ready skills in visual and performing arts or science, technology, engineering and math, known collectively as STEM. Finalists will be recognized, along with other students, educators, business partners and community leaders, at the Excellence in Education Celebration on Thursday, March 27, at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington. Contest entries were featured on the council’s Facebook page, and at the website, www.nkyec.org. Polly Lusk Page, the council’s executive director, said the contest was planned to coincide with this year’s celebration theme, NKY Has Talent. “Every year, the event has a different theme. It’s a committee decision, and this year’s was very fun,” said Page. “It’s an example of how we work as a council. Different people come together to determine how we want to recognize the wonderful educators and business partners and students that we have. We do that each year in a different way. I’m amazed when I look at the students in this contest, and the leadership awards and academic allstar awards. When I look at the youth of Northern Kentucky, I’m blown away.” The popular vote tally was only one facet of the contest criteria, which also included production quality, creativity, and its direct

Boone County High School senior Zac Raleigh received 679 votes for his NKY Has Talent contest video.

The River Ridge Elementary News Team includes, front row from left, Sophia Palmer, Emma Rose, Erin Molony, Staylie Brunner, Jack Kazmaier, Daniel Stacy; second row, Ryan Boblett, Sydni Denman-Moyer, Nate Walther, Kendall Ragan, McKenna Brennen; third row, Nathan Linville, Blake Iles, Grayson Caple, Reed Schneider, Mariah Fellers, Jack Comerford, Drake Pitz; back row, Elli Steffen, Regan Conley, Khrista Goode and Lauren Tedeschi.

connection to college and career readiness. Boone County High School senior Zac Raleigh, whose sideways-oriented performance of Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie,” online at vimeo.com/86143963, was the contest’s most popular entry, garnering 684 votes. Zac, son of the Florence school’s principal Mark Raleigh, said he used branding skills he learned in leadership programs to help leverage his social media knowledge, although the sideways-oriented video was the unintentional result of a broken video camera. “I wasn’t worried about the sideways video because I knew it would stick out,” Zac said “I think you

should learn how to brand yourself and use social media in school. It makes people successful.” Page said, “That’s brilliant. I love Zac’s branding and marketing ideas. That’s exactly what we’re trying to do. This contest gave us the opportunity to empower some of our youth in a different way and showcase their talents. This is just a glimpse of all the talent we have in our region.” Another artistic performer, Olivia Cisco of Holy Cross Elementary in Covington, received 616 votes for her rendition of “Touch the Sky” from the Disney movie “Brave.” “I have people all over

America who voted for me,” said Olivia. “I just love to sing.” Her video can be watched at vimeo.com/85524983. The Visual and Performing Arts finalist in the fourth-eighth grade category made news, literally. The River Ridge Elementary morning news team earned 279 votes with a video about their production, vimeo.com/86021668. School counselor Gillian Dilts and school psychologist Jessica Roesch advise the news crew, which includes nearly 30 fifth-grade students, each of whom came in during the summer for news camp and auditions.

Although participation requires early arrival at the Villa Hills school, the news team doesn’t mind. “I like talking in front of people, and everyone can see my face,” said Kendall Ragan, who chaired the anchor desk during a recent broadcast. From Fort Thomas, Woodfill Elementary firstgraders didn’t just speak their information, they sang it. “One of the students suggested using a theme song from a television show,” said teacher Casey Gesenhues. “I thought of ‘The Brady Bunch,’ which they didn’t know, but when they heard it, they liked it, so we used that.” During their STEM-related video, at vimeo.com/86078328, the students visited local and regional businesses and organizations, and sang about how the skills they were learning are directly related to their possible future careers. “I think what I like best about her project is that she was able to highlight a handful of kids, but incorporated the whole class and several of our business partners through the song,” said Woodfill Principal Keith Faust. “It’s the

perfect way to showcase what we want to see kids doing in the classroom.” Eighth-graders Noah Ford and Gage Hilbert from Ockerman Elementary in Florence weren’t playing around with their submission, vimeo.com/86153578, which featured their video game-development skills. Gage said he’ll continue creating video games as a career, but Noah expects to pursue it as a hobby, but they agreed building worlds, spawning enemies and determining option parameters was more fun than recording a video for the talent contest. “It was still very cool,” said Gage. Sophomore Daniel Kennedy, from Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood, built an industrial-grade box-lifting robot from LEGO blocks, microprocessors and gears, which can be seen at http://vimeo.com/86073756 . “Every once in a while, building robots comes in useful for school projects,” said Daniel. “I like building stuff, and I just thought it would be fun to do.” Want to continue the conversation?

Ambrosia, cake recipes help welcome spring

As I write this column, I can see the field beyond our vegetable garden sowed with winter rye. After it sprouted, it stayed nestled under a blanket of snow until recently. It looks like a pale green carpet. Seeing new growth at this time of year just gives Rita me a Heikenfeld bright RITA’S KITCHEN outlook on my day. My cooking is starting to reflect the change of season, too. I’m thinking way ahead with lighter fare and fun sides and desserts to share for spring.

Ambrosia

I can remember exactly when I first tasted this heavenly side dish that goes so well with Easter ham. We were newly married and took a weekend trip to Gatlinburg. One of the restaurants featured ambrosia. I had no idea what it was but it sounded so intriguing that I ordered it. The waiter explained that it was a Southern side dish made with fruit and cream. I was too shy to ask any more about it, and when it arrived at our table I thought he brought me somebody else’s dessert. Since then I’ve made it many times. My current favorite is this recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown. ⁄4 cup whipping cream

3

1 generous tablespoon sugar 1 ⁄2 cup sour cream or bit more to taste 3 cups mini marshmallows 1 cup tangerine segments, cut into halves 1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained 1 cup coconut 1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped coarsely 3 ⁄4 to 1 cup drained maraschino cherry halves

Whip cream and sugar until soft peaks form. Blend in sour cream and then stir in everything else. Chill in refrigerator a couple hours before serving.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

You can sub Mandarin orange segments, drained, for the fresh tangerines.

Donna Goulet’s 7-Up cake

I’ve had this recipe in my file since last summer from Donna and was waiting for the right time to share it. Donna has had this recipe for a long time – she cut it out of the newspaper. Donna said: “It is delicious. A West-sider all my life until recently we moved to Erlanger, Ky. Really enjoy your column and look forward to it every week.” Well, Donna, I enjoy sharing reader’s recipes and this one was a big hit. So nice for springtime entertaining. It stayed moist, covered, at room temperature for several days. The only thing I did different is that I made a simple

Rita used a simple glaze on this reader-submitted cake recipe, but there is a cooked frosting recipe too.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

glaze instead of making the frosting that Donna suggests. If you make her frosting, I would store the cake in the frig. 1 box (two-layer size) yellow cake mix 1 box (four-serving size) instant vanilla or pineapple pudding mix 3 ⁄4 cup cooking oil 4 eggs 1 ⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional) 10 ounces 7-Up

Mix cake mix, instant pudding mix, oil and eggs in large bowl of electric mixer until well blended. Add vanilla, if

using it, and the 7-Up. Beat two minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl frequently. Turn into a greased and floured 13 x 9-inch baking pan, or into two nineinch layer cake pans. Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven 40 to 45 minutes, or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Prepare 7-Up cake frosting and pour cooked mixture over the warm cake.

7-Up cake frosting

1 tablespoon flour 1 stick butter or margarine 1 can (81⁄4 ounces) crushed pineapple, including juice 1 cup coconut

and floured, and baked it for 50 minutes or so. Bake it until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

In heavy-bottomed medium saucepan, cream butter with sugar and eggs. Stir in flour. Add pineapple and juice. Over medium heat, cook mixture, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in coconut. Pour over warm cake.

Note from Rita

I baked mine in a Bundt pan, well greased

2 eggs 1 cup sugar

Make sure homeowner’s, renter’s insurance has sewer-back-up coverage It’s a problem that’s plagued the Tristate for years – sewers backing up into area homes. Several years ago a federal court ordered the Cincinnati Metropolitan Sewer District to pay to clean up sewer back-up damage, but that hasn’t solved the problem everywhere. Sewer back-ups can occur just about everywhere and they can not only damage your basement, but your belongings as well. Unless you protect yourself, you could be stuck with huge clean-up bills. That’s what happened to Karla Kramer after a sewer back-up at her Alexandria home late last year. “We came home to a weird smell and went downstairs and noticed some puddles,” Kramer said. That’s when Kramer and her husband, Daniel, founded their basement was flooded with several inches of sewer water. “The water was actually gushing up through the sewer,” she said. A plumber was soon able to determine their sewer line to the street was clear; it was the sanitation district’s main line that was clogged up. “There were deep tree roots that had grown through the lines,” Kramer said. In addition to replacing the tile on the base-

ment floor, as well as the carpet, the Kramers had to replace drywall because everything Howard was damAin aged by HEY HOWARD! that sewer water. Northern Kentucky Sanitation District No. 1, known as SD-1, came out and fixed the sewer line but won’t pay for the Kramers’ damage. “They came out and said, ‘Yes, it was definitely their fault,’ but since they didn’t actually know (the blockage) was there they were not at fault,” Kramer said. Fortunately, the Kramers have sewer back-up insurance as part of their homeowner’s coverage. But they only had $5,000 coverage and the damage to their home and belongings exceeded $12,000. SD-1 Director Dave Rager said that while such back-up s are unfortunate, they do happen. “It is not uncommon that it happens in our system. We try to keep up with the system but they do happen. That’s part of the reason why so many utilities are owned by the government, the challenge of maintaining systems like this,” Rager

said. Rager said the sewer district will be checking the lines in Kramers’ neighborhood every six months to make sure they remain clear. Unlike the Cincinnati Metropolitan Sewer District, SD-1’s federal court decree doesn’t require it to pay for undetected sewer line problems. “We have 700 miles of lines. That’s almost enough to go from coast to coast,” Rager said. The Kramers have now increased their sewer back-up insurance and this is something all homeowners should consider – especially those with a finished basement. In addition, those who rent homes should check their renter’s insurance policy. A Forest Park man said although he has renter’s insurance, his policy didn’t cover the recent sewer back-up damage to his belongings. So, because many renters’ policies don’t automatically include sewer back-up coverage, you need to ask for this protection. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.
