Growing along with Alexandria

Jolly Towne Centre adding new tenants By Amy Scalf

ALEXANDRIA — Extreme winter weather delayed work on a 4,500-square-foot addition to the Jolly Towne Centre, but construction has begun and tenants are expected in the new space by June 1. Campbell County business owner Barry Jolly announced the addition would bring the Jolly Towne Centre, at 7926 Alexandria Pike, to 16,500 square feet in June 2013, and now those plans are becoming reality. “We thought we’d have tenants in by March 1, but the weather didn’t help us out on that,” said Jolly. He said the concrete floor had been poured for the new

space, which could include up to four new store locations. Two of the spaces are already leased, one to a hair salon and

one to Tailored Catering, owned by Jeffrey Rawe. “The delay hasn’t been a major, major issue, but it will be if

I’m getting the business I’m hoping to get,” said Rawe, who has been using other commercial space for his business until

the Jolly Towne Centre spaces are complete. “The sooner it opens, the better off I’ll be.” Rawe said his full kitchen has been designed and some of his equipment has been purchased. He’s just waiting to get into the space, but he’s handling as many catering clients as possible in the meantime. “When you build a house, you should know it’s going to be held up by a month or two, so when you’re building a business, you should expect it’s going to get held up, too,” said Rawe. Jolly said he decided to add the space because the rest of the center, and two more shopping centers he owns, have been completely full. “I’m getting too many calls not to have a place to put folks,” he said.

Youth gardening class planting the seeds of literacy By Chris Mayhew

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — The University of Kentucky’s Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service is getting children ages 6-10 to dig reading and gardening at the same time. The Literature in the Garden program is part of the extension service’s youth gardening pro-

grams, which also include a monthly Flower Buds program for ages 3-5 and a regular youth master gardener class for ages 8-12. Doris Meece, a horticulture technician at the office, led first meeting of Literature in the Garden class March 11 by reading the book “Miss Rumphius” by Barbara Cooney. Afterward, six children planted lettuce

ALEXANDRIA — Justin Rolf felt pressure not to drop the ball when it came to collection started by his sister. There was a chance the Crosstown Foodout, started by Rolf’s sister Mallory to raise donations for the CARE (Caring And Reaching with Encouragement) Mission, was going to canceled this year if someone didn’t take over. Mallory Rolf founded the collection as a fundraiser challenge between Campbell

seeds in a plastic planter. How Miss Rumphius planted seeds everywhere she went and cleaned up was a fun story to hear, said Claire Curtsing, 9, of California. Curtsing said she liked planting seeds in the dirt as part of the class. “You get messy,” she said.

yet. “Alexandria’s demographics aren’t up there for national chains yet, but we’re getting close,” he said. “With the Arcadia subdivision and the Baptist Life retirement community coming in, the need for retail space will go up.” Jolly’s plumbing business in Wilder will also be moving to a new address, across the street from his current location at 11 Beacon Drive. “The tenants keep moving me out of my own buildings. I guess that’s a good problem to have,” he said. “This center sat empty for four years. Now we see activity and the parking lot is full. It’s been good. We all like our Alexandria the way it is, but that’s the way the world works. It’s growing.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @AmyScalfNky


Bellevue buying Marianne Theatre By Melissa Stewart

BELLEVUE — The future of the Marianne Theatre just got brighter. Bellevue is purchasing the vacant Art Deco-style theater building at 609611Fairfield Ave. Mayor Ed Riehl made the announcement at the March 12 council meeting; council then voted unanimously to allow the mayor to sign a contract for the purchase. Riehl called it an “important transaction,” that will allow the city to take control of the future of the city’s “architectural gem.” The mayor said the the city and building owner Jack Eck have discussed a sale for several years. At the end of 2013, Eck approached the city again. “Negotiations went

well,” Riehl said. “He was willing to sell at a favorable price and now we’re just waiting on the title service. Mr. Eck has been a good friend to Bellevue and knew how important the property is to the city. We all agreed we didn’t want it to fall in to the wrong hands, but instead preserve the property for the future.” The city will pay $138,380 for the property. Riehl said he expects the

process to be complete within a month. According to Cinema Treasures website,, the Marianne Theatre opened in 1942 and had seating for 542. The theater has been closed for several years. Plans for the property have not yet been made, according to City Administrator Keith Spoekler. He said that the city has not been approached by developers, but hoped the

Riehl said council will have public meetings to gather input from residents in the coming months. “We do know that we want to create an economic viable building,” he said. “A lot of people in the community have fond memories of the Marianne as a theater.

said. “I was so proud of him.” Mallory started the Crosstown Foodout as an idea of how she could do a project to help her community for an application to get into Kentucky’s Governor Scholar program. “I didn’t see anything that said you shouldn’t just do it, so I did,” she said. Justin taking over the event was unexpected, but exciting, Mallory said. “I really wanted it to be something that lasted longer than just two years,” she said. “I was really excited when he said he was willing to put forth all that effort.”

Wilson’s big game paces Camels in tough loss By James Weber

Camel sophomore Matt Wilson goes to the hoop. Campbell County fell 58-56 to Johnson Central in the first round of the KHSAA Sweet 16 March 19. JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

LEXINGTON — Matt Wilson made a name for himself at the Sweet 16 March 19. The Campbell County High School sophomore and his Camel teammates didn’t get their “hump day” on a Wednesday night at Rupp Arena, and while the Camels lamented some missed opportunities, they can look back at a successful run to the state tournament. Campbell fell 58-56 to Johnson Central in the first round of the KHSAA Sweet 16, ending its first appearance in the tournament since 2001, second overall. Wilson, a 6-foot-5 sophomore center, led the way for the Camels with16 points and 21rebounds, plus two blocked shots He was 6-of-11 from the field and posted 17 of his rebounds on the defensive end. “The kids played really hard tonight,” Campbell head coach Aric Russell said. “They gutted it out. I thought their pressure bothered us, and caused many turnovers that killed us in the game. I don’t think we didn’t play hard, I just think we didn’t handle their pressure very well. I think their length got to us a little bit as far as their traps and we made poor decisions at times. We also made nice plays at times to score off them, too, so you take the good with the bad.” Campbell had 14 turnovers for the game, the last the most costly, as the Camels turned it over off a Johnson Central trap. Junior guard Dalton Adkins’ layup off a steal and assist by junior guard Braxton Blair

with 4.6 seconds left was the ultimate winning basket. The Camels weren’t able to get off a shot on their final possession. With the game tied 56-56 in the final minute, Campbell held the ball for a final shot and didn’t call time out, as Russell trusted senior guard Corey Holbrook and junior guard De’Ondre Jackson to run the show. “De’Ondre and Corey have been in this position all year and I thought they could make a play,” Russell said. “I felt if I call time out there - I only had one anyway - then I thought if I call it, it gives them a chance to set their defense up. I felt like one of those two would get something to the basket or get fouled. Their kid just made a nice defensive play.” Holbrook had 18 points and six rebounds. Jackson posted 16 points. The two guards combined to shoot 12-of-24 from the field and each made two 3pointers. Wilson guarded Shane Hall, JC’s 6-foot-9 senior, who was one of seven Mr. Basketball finalists in the state. Hall, who has signed with Marshall and entered the state tourney averaging 17.5 points and 10.3 rebounds, was held to just nine points and five rebounds. He did have five blocked shots, all in the first half. Hall entered the state tourney second in state history in career blocks (465). “We wanted to play real physical with him,” Russell said. “Matt did a great job. We knew where he liked to get the ball, we were trying to push him off that spot. Corey would come over to help and try to get the ball out of his hands. That

part of it, trying to hold him down, we did pretty good.” A big key highlighted by Russell was JC’s second post player, 6-foot-6 Kyle Gullett. Gullett scored 22 points and had four blocked shots, as he and Hall rejected nine shots in the first half, and the Golden Eagles blocked 11 overall in the first stanza. Campbell often played four guards around Wilson. “Gullett got away from us a lot,” Russell said. “The biggest thing there was it was a mismatch. We didn’t play with a true four man all year long, and they exposed it. They did a good job trying to get him the ball and they exposed us a few times, and that’s what we’ve been living with all year, and that kind of got us tonight.” All the blocked shots kept the Golden Eagles in the game. Campbell shot 11-of-30 in the first half, but an impressive 9of-13 on two-point shots that weren’t rejected. Campbell limited JC to 11-of-30 shooting as well, and led by as many as12 points in the first half on a 3pointer by Jackson that capped a 12-0 run. The Camels led by eight points in the third quarter but the Golden Eagles pulled within two (44-42) entering the final period. Wilson scored on a layup with 1:40 to go to give Campbell a 56-54 lead, its final points of the season. Gullett tied it with 1:15 to go. Campbell seniors are Holbrook, Luke Franzen and Garrett Geiman. Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Campbell County boasts strong baseball teams By James Weber

CAMPBELL COUNTY — Baseball is under way in Campbell County. Here is a look at county schools:


Bellevue was 11-19 last year for head coach Rob Sanders, who has 95 career wins. He directed the Tigers to their second consecutive conference title in NCAA Division III and has a veteran group back for a run at a threepeat and postseason success. Bellevue returns seven starters on defense, its top five starting pitchers and four of its top five hitters from 2013. Three multi-sport standout seniors enter their fifth year on varsity and will lead the way. Senior shortstop Dylan Huff hit .342 last year and is a two-time conference player of the year. Senior right fielder Tyler Ackerson hit .362 and was second on the team in RBI. Senior catcher Zach Poinsett was the leadoff hitter and hit .314. Additionally, senior Brian Dill led team in RBI and is a strong fielder at first base as well as the No. 2 hurler. Sophomore Briley Seiter is likely to lead the rotation and had strong outings in 2013 against powerhouse foes Covington Catholic and Newport Central Catholic.

Bishop Brossart

The Mustangs had an uncharacteristically tough 2013 season, going 10-20 and ending its season in the 37th District Tournament. Head coach Ron Verst returns

eight starters plus the entire pitching staff from a year ago, though the Mustangs have to account for the graduation of standout catcher Tanner Norton. Top returning players are senior infielder/pitcher Nate Verst, junior third baseman/pitcher Spencer Hackworth, junior outfielder/pitcher Clay Kramer and senior shortstop/pitcher Conner Verst. Nate Verst, a Kentucky Wesleyan recruit in Division II, hit .385 last year to lead the team and has 15 wins in two seasons on the mound to be the team’s ace. Kramer is the No. 2 pitcher. Teddy McDonald, the team’s secondleading hitter last year, missed part of last season to injury. Brossart plays at Grant County March 27 and hosts Walton-Verona March 29, then plays at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at Colerain. Brossart hosts Campbell County at 12:30 p.m. April 5. Brossart was 10th in the NKY coaches poll.

bell does return six pitchers with varsity experience, though. “The experience we return at the varsity is invaluable,” Schweitzer said. “At any time last year we would start six or seven sophomores and they grew as a team.” The Camels were seventh in the preseason Northern Kentucky Baseball Coaches Association poll.

Campbell County


The Camels peaked at the end of last season, going 19-17 overall but putting together a winning streak that brought them the 37th District championship. Campbell made a run to the 10th Region final, losing to Harrison County. Scott Schweitzer returns for his sixth season as head coach. He returns five starters in Robert Metz, Joe Kremer, Johnny Eblin, Cameron Edwards and Avery Wood. Schweitzer’s main concern is mound experience, as the Camels graduated 75 percent of their innings thrown from 2013. Camp-


Dayton was 4-13 last season and is directed this year by head coach Justin Fussinger, who takes over the program. Senior third baseman/pitcher Austin Brockman is the team’s top returning player. He is the only senior listed on the Greendevils’ 16-player roster. Dayton has two juniors and two sophomores. Dayton participates in the inaugural “Little 5” tourney at Lloyd Memorial High School beginning March 28 and hosts Raceland April 1. Jeremy Baioni return for his seventh year as head coach. He directed the Bluebirds to a 19-18 record, highlighted by a second straight 36th District championship. Staters returning are seniors Mitch Gesenhues, Evan Allen (second base) and juniors Jake Whitford (shortstop), Todd Ramey (first base/third base) and Joseph Martin. Pitchers Joey Cochran (senior) and Mitchell Jones (junior) lead the mound staff. Baioni said Jones and Ramey are Division I college prospects.

“We have a lot of varsity and big game experience,” Baioni said. “While we return five everyday starters, our roster will consist of kids that have a lot of varsity experience. We have quite a few pitchers to look at and competition for playing time will be intense.” Highlands is ranked fifth in Northern Kentucky by local coaches.


The Wildcats went 4-17 last season and are head coached by Dennis Ollier. The Wildcats were ousted in the 36th District semifinals. Newport hosts St. Henry Monday, March 31 then plays Bellevue April1before playing at rival Newport Central Catholic April 2. Top returning Wildcats are senior Charlie Mullins and senior second baseman/outfielder Michael Turner.

Newport Central Catholic Jeff Schulkens returns as one of Northern Kentucky’s winningest coaches with a 322-268 record. He directed the Thoroughbreds to a 20-14 record last year. NCC was 36th District runner-up and fell in the Ninth Region quarterfinals. NCC was All “A” Classic state champions as well and will look to defend that title. Schulkens’ chief challenge is replacing almost his entire lineup, as junior Zack Pangallo is the only returning starter, and he had a late start due to his basketball duties in March. Other players to watch begin with Jake Pangallo, Mitch Pangallo, Jake Yeager, Grant Moeves and Tommy Donnelly. “They lack experience but are a very hard group of young men See BASEBALL, Page A6



Reds high school showcase expands to 72 teams Camels, NCC play April 11 Community Press report

The third annual Skyline Chili Reds Futures High School Showcase is increasing the number of participating schools from 64 to 72, with 13 teams playing in the season-opening event for the first time. The Showcase features 36 games from March 29 to April 27 at the premier baseball parks in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky including nine games at Prasco Park in Mason, games at Crosley Field in Blue Ash and Midland Field in Batavia, as well as 13 games at the collegiate ballparks on the campuses of the University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University and Miami University. Four games will be played at the new P&G MLB Cincinnati Urban Youth Academy at the Roselawn Sports Complex, the home fields for Walnut Hills and Purcell Marian high schools. “The Reds are proud to support high school baseball and foster the development of the next major league stars,” said Phil Castellini, Reds chief operating officer. “Cincinnati has a rich heritage of hometown players going on to great major league careers with the Reds including Ken Griffey Jr., Rob Oester and Dave Parker from this year’s Reds

Hall of Fame induction class.” Griffey Jr. (Archbishop Moeller High School, class of 1987), Oester (Withrow High School, 1974) and Parker (Courter Technical High School, 1970) will be inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame along with the late Jake Beckley during Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, Aug. 8-10. “This event is now an integral part of the high school baseball landscape in Cincinnati,” said Tom Gamble, InGame Sports president and CEO. “It’s an honor to celebrate the history of local high school baseball by having great players from the past take part in our ceremonial first pitches during many of the games. And with the support of the Reds along with sponsors Skyline Chili and Safeco Insurance, we are able to provide an even better all-around baseball experience for the participating teams and their fans.” Title sponsor Skyline Chili and presenting sponsor Safeco Insurance will create interactive contests and promotions at each of the 36 games. At select games, ceremonial first pitches will be thrown out by some of the area’s greatest high school players to commemorate the rich tradition and heritage of high school baseball played in Greater Cincinnati. Tickets for the Reds Futures High School

Showcase games are $5 and good for all games on that day. Each ticket includes a voucher good for a free View Level ticket to select 2014 Reds regular season games at Great American Ball Park and also includes a coupon for one free Skyline Chili cheese coney. Advance tickets can be purchased at each of the participating schools beginning in March. Tickets also will be available on game days at each of the ballparks. The culminating event of the Showcase will be on Sunday, May 4, when players and coaches from the 72 high schools will participate in a “March at the Majors” parade around the field prior to the Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers game at 4:10 p.m. An

Wrong veterans selected for hall of fame For more than a year, I was a member of the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation, board of directors. During my time there, I observed how things were being run and I was disgusted by it. During discussions, much more emphasis was put on who could help the foundation rather than who actually deserved to be inducted. Seeing the hand writing on the wall and unable to do anything about it, I resigned my position on June 2, 2013. I find it shocking but not surprising that two leading figures in the KVHOFF have been inducted in the first class. I believe the induction of the Executive Director and CEO H.B. Deatherage shows a complete

disregard for ethics and the integrity of the board. Another inductee is Brandon Bailey who serves as chairman of the Selection Tom Committee. Dierig His selection COMMUNITY was also given RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST help by the fact that his mother sat on the Selection Committee. I cannot believe the arrogance of these people to induct themselves into this hall and ignore so many more qualified and deserving veterans. While I was a member of the hall of fame board of directors, I

campaigned hard to induct all 59 Kentucky Medal of Honor recipients in the first year. The Selection Committee decided to induct only the four living Medal of Honor recipients. Thus rejecting 55 of our state’s greatest heroes and voting for themselves with minor qualifications. I guess that living Medal of Honor recipients put more people in the seats at the dinner. Therefore the heroes that are no longer with us become less important. This in no way is meant to diminish the lives and accomplishments of any Medal of Honor recipient. They all deserve to be in the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame before any-

one else. A look at the numbers is very revealing. There is no question that the four Medal of Honor recipients deserve to be there. Of the 23 others, 10 are from Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties. That means that 43 percent were selected from three of Kentucky’s 120 counties. That is not fair but also not surprising. That is because the Hall of Fame Foundation, all of their friends and associates are located in Northern Kentucky. The hall of fame is a great idea and I was proud to be a part of the foundation until I saw the self-serving decisions and actions of its leaders. By their actions, the leader-

ship has disgraced the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame and cheapened the honor of being selected for induction. The selection of Deatherage and Bailey has given the hall of fame a big black eye from which it will never recover. Instead of hall of fame, it has become the hall of Shame. To give the hall any chance of survival, these two individuals must be removed. They must be removed from the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame and from the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation. Tom Dierig is a Vietnam veteran from 1968-1971. He lives in Independence.

What’s your vision for Northern Kentucky? How would you invest $100,000 in our community, if you had the chance? I answered that question on, where I chose to invest $100,000 in virtual dollars into education, and more specifically, early childhood education, while playing the myNKY community priority game. Have you heard about myNKY? It’s a six-month community visioning campaign that launched in January to engage residents, educators, politicians and businesses in determining the priorities for Northern Kentucky’s next five-year strategic plan. I chose to invest in education because I see it as a great equalizer of opportunity, helping ensure the future success of all children, and in turn their communities, regardless of their socioeconomic status. In fact, pro-

grams supporting children can’t start early enough—research shows the importance of early child deJordan velopment and Huizenga its positive effect on later acCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST ademic and soCOLUMNIST cial progress. Closer to home, the recent release of kindergarten readiness data shows that in Northern Kentucky only 53 percent of children are ready for kindergarten. This sobering fact should drive Northern Kentuckians to act by promoting, encouraging and investing in quality early education programs for children, making education initiatives a key priority for our region. Programs like home visitation for first-



A publication of

time moms, initiatives to grow the number of high-quality child care spots available, social and emotional development for young students and programs that create more stable families so children can be successful. There are few opportunities and initiatives designed to catapult Northern Kentucky farther and faster than those in the early childhood realm. It’s a fact – investing in children means investing in our future. One way you can do that is following my lead and visiting, the hub for collecting community input in developing the next five-year strategic plan. The site features an interactive prioritization game and a variety of polls and challenge questions on the topic of education, as well as transportation, health and wellness, and jobs. Visiting and

lending your opinion will affect the direction of the next strategic plan, which guides lawmakers and community movers and shakers when it comes time to invest public funds. Ask yourself, “What one thing can be done to improve the quality of life in Northern Kentucky?” While you may answer differently than I did, your input during the myNKY campaign could make the difference in making Northern Kentucky a better community. Whether you do it online or in-person, myNKY is your chance to tell Vision 2015 what areas you believe will move the region forward. Let’s talk about our future. Let’s talk about our priorities. Let’s make our voices heard. Jordan Huizenga is the director of development for Children Inc.

The following business leaders of Northern Kentucky are united against tolls because we know the true cost to this community will be devastating. The governor’s highway plan calls for tolls to pay $1.78 billion for the proposed Brent Spence project. Despite baseless assertions to the contrary, $1 a trip is not going to cover that. Tolls in Louisville are being introduced at $1 but the fine print calls for increases as needed, and they will be needed. And, with $12 a trip truck tolls being proposed in Louisville, the cost to the commonwealth is unimaginable. Over 175,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily, with 65 percent of those vehicles being Northern Kentucky drivers. If those 113,750 drivers pay a toll of $2.50 a trip, it will cost Northern Kentucky almost $104 million a year. Those lost dollars then fail to circulate and affect our community. This will forever cripple Northern Kentucky. There is a much better way for Northern Kentucky to address this issue. In1987 the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recommended that we re-route I-71 through I-75 and across southern Boone, Kenton and Campbell Counties crossing the Ohio River and linking the interstate to I-275 on the Ohio side. This alternate route was envisioned to reduce traffic on the Brent Spence Bridge by well over thousands of cars a day. At the same time, it would add a new Ohio/Kentucky crossing and open up vast areas for development and create tremendous growth in both Ohio and Kentucky. This would also immediately take a large amount of traffic away from the I-75 bridge in Covington. The promise of new commercial, industrial and residential developments will mean jobs, jobs and jobs – a large capital infusion into our economy.

Rita discusses cookware just in time for bridal season No recipes today! I’m veering off course and getting on my soapbox about cookware. We’re going into the busy bridal season and I get more questions about cookware and cutlery than you’d believe. Here’s a primer of sorts on cookware – in a future column we’ll chat about cutlery. Cut this column out and arm yourself with it when you shop for cookware. Buying Rita cookware Heikenfeld can be RITA’S KITCHEN confusing to say the least. Should you go by price? By looks? By popularity? Buy individual pieces or sets? Do some soul searching, think about the way you cook, your lifestyle, and pick cookware that will serve you best. Cook’s Illustrated has some timely information on their site about cookware choices. For the most part, you get what you pay for, especially when it comes to stainless steel and cast iron. The cookware that will last a lifetime isn’t going to be inexpensive, but you know what? In the long run, you’ll save time, money, the environment and, maybe most important, your sanity! Material: It can be stainless steel, aluminum, anodized aluminum, copper with a tinned or stainless inside surface, cast iron, cast

as a Dutch oven, has an enameled cooking surface, which gives the benefit of cast iron without the angst. Great browning qualities. Best to use silicone or wooden utensils. Nonstick. There is a lot of debate about this being a safe cooking surface. My research indicates that Tefloncoated pans are considered safe as long as they’re not overheated or peeling/flaking. “Green pans,” nonstick pans with a ceramic-type safe coating, are popular now. Nonsticks do not brown as well, for the most part, as regular pans, but they’re wonderful for eggs, waffles, cheese sandwiches, low-fat cooking, etc. You need no oil except for flavor/ browning and clean up is a breeze. Unless otherwise stated, use silicone or wooden utensils. This heirloom cast iron pan is the only thing Rita will fry her kibbi patties.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

iron with enameled inside, ceramic, tempered glass and nonstick, to name just a few. Clad stainless steel. On its own, stainless is a poor conductor of heat. Buy a stainless pan with copper or aluminum in it. The best cookware is “clad” which means it has aluminum or copper core that is sandwiched, or clad, between stainless steel. It’s also called triple or five-ply. There are two kinds of clad: Fully clad like what I just described where the sandwiched core extends

from the bottom of the pan all the way up the sides (creating layers) or bottom clad which have a disk of aluminum or copper on the bottom only. Both perform well, but the fully clad is my choice and the highest quality. All Clad pans, made in Pennsylvania, are tops in my book. You can use metal utensils. Aluminum. Look for anodized aluminum, which means the pan has been put through a process that changes the aluminum structure to be non-reactive to foods,

Cooking spray: Yes or no? All about cast iron Sets vs. individual pieces The most used pan in the kitchen (you may be surprised) Pans for induction ranges Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author.

thing else. Made in the USA, these are treasures. If you find one at a garage sale that’s made in the USA, snatch it up! Lodge, Wagner and Griswold are familiar names. The downside is cast iron is heavy and needs to be seasoned, and dried right away after cleaning. The perk is you get a boost of iron when you cook with it. There are now cast iron pieces that are preseasoned. Metal utensils are OK. Enameled cast iron. My time-honored Le Creuset, which doubles
