BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Fair gets kids reading By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

COLD SPRING — Families from across the county came together for a day of learning and fun at the Campbell County Public Library’s annual Family Literacy Fair Saturday, May12, at the Cold Spring branch. The fair, which in the past has been held at the Newport branch, is an opportunity for families to participate in literacy activities, see live entertainment and get information about the importance of literacy, especially at a young age, said C.J. Connor, the children’s librarian at the Cold Spring branch. “We feel that literacy starts at age zero, or actually, in the womb,” Connors said. “We are here to offer parents and caregivers ideas on ways they can optimize their literacy experience with their children.” Connor said along with having fun and promoting literacy, events like the literacy fair also teach kids about the library. “We want children to know that the library is a fun, safe place they can come to throughout their lives,” Connors said. Several location vendors, businesses and other group joined the library staff to put on the event, from book sellers and daycares to representatives from the Campbell County Family Resource Center and the YMCA, all offering different kinds of information. First Steps, Kentucky’s early intervention system for children with developmental disabilities, participated in the event, doing developmental screening for children from birth to 3. Mary Heidrich, the Northern Kentucky program supervisor for First Steps. said it is evident how important the first few years of a child’s life to their development, and their program helps identify and work to address any issues a child may have as early as possible. Heidrich said these developmental delays can cause children to have issues with literacy, which is something she feels is very important. “It’s important that children have exposure to music, books, verbal communication and personal interactions because those things help with all areas of their development,” Heidrich said. When a child has a book read to them and looks at the pictures, they aren’t just learning about the words, Heidrich said, but also colors, shapes, coordination, motor skills. “There is just so much a child learns just by looking at a book,” Heidrich said.

INDEPENDENCE — When Bob Hacker likes something, he sticks with it. He’s been married to Shirley for almost 52 years. He’s attended Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, where he met his wife, for 56 years. And he’s taught a Sunday Bible study class at the church for 35 years. Hacker, who will turn 73 in July, has spent the last 12 years attending Northern Kentucky University working toward a bachelor of arts degree in English literature, which he would receive at graduation on Sunday, May 20, but he’ll miss the event because of his commitment to his Bible students. Hacker is a Holmes High School graduate of the Class of 1957, and he went on to become an engineering technician for Cincinnati Bell. “I had a job I loved for almost 40 years,” he said. “Then I retired and I started substitute teaching and I thought I’d wasted my life. I should have been a teacher. When a student doesn’t understand something, and you explain it, and you see that light bulb come on because they understand it, there’s not a better feeling in the world.” Bill Dickens, who is both Hacker’s son-in-law and Calvary Christian School’s administrator, said Hacker is an enthusiastic and well-liked teacher. “The students love him,” said Dickens. “I know we can call on him and he’ll always teach. He loves when the teachers leaves him something to teach. He’s been a good father-in-law, too.” Hacker liked his college experience so much, he may go back for a master’s degree, and Shirley said she’ll be there to support him if he chooses to continue. “It’s a great accomplishment. He’s a great student, graduating with a 3.98 grade point average,” she said. “I’m very proud of him and happy for him.”

Shirley and Bob Hacker, are not only looking forward to their 52nd wedding anniversary in August, they are also celebrating the completion of Bob's bachelor's degree in English literature from Northern Kentucky University. AMY SCALF/ THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

American Boxer Club visits Fort Mitchell

Student aces the ACT game, he said. Andrew, a starting member of Campbell County High School’s academic team, plays on the school’s baseball and golf teams. He’s also a self-taught bass guitar player, and his band, “Sorry I Shrunk Your Sweater Vest,” won the school’s Battle of the Bands contest last spring. “He’s a very well-rounded student,” Donn Manker, Campbell’s academic team coach, said of Andrew. “He excels on the academic team, but he’s also successful on school’s golf and baseball teams.

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County High School’s Andrew Perrin is celebrating a perfect score on the ACT exam. The 16-year-old junior earned a composite score of 36 on the college entrance exam, which he took in March, and just learned the good news. “I was definitely excited,” Andrew, of Alexandria, said of his perfect score. His mom, Dianne Perrin, surprised him with the news at a baseball

Andrew helped lead Campbell County High School’s academic team to an overall fourth-place finish at the recent Governor’s Cup State Finals – and he’s the team’s “social studies expert,” according to Manker. While he excels in every subject, U.S. history has always been his favorite, Andrew said. He hopes to one day share that passion as a high school social studies teacher. “I like the subject matter and high school atmosphere…and think I could make a difference,” Andrew said of teaching. Andrew said his rigorous AP courses and years on the academic team (he started as a fifth-grader) helped him prepare for the ACT. To put his perfect score in perspective, a 36 is earned by less than onetenth of one percent of the more than 1.6 million students across the nation who take the exam annually.

FORT MITCHELL — ReMax is feisty, friendly and robust. He’s leaving the parking lot of The Drawbridge Hotel in Fort Mitchell with his owner Vera Kollar, tail wagging behind him, much like his legacy. Kollar, who hails from Illinois, is familiar with the spot; she’s been showing boxer dogs since 1965, when she was 12 years old, and ReMax, named after his grandfather, named Max, is a champion. Although he hasn’t been in competition in a while, he’s one of two dogs who’ve won the American Boxer Club’s championship with his original ears intact, Kollar said. “He has natural ears, usually they’re cut off,” she said. “The judges really approved.” ReMax and other dogs were in Fort Mitchell for the American Boxer Club National Specialty, which ran May 5-11. On May 8, the dogs were competing in a Futurity competition, where breeders are awarded for the puppies they produce. “The best way to learn about the dog is to watch it develop through the ages,” said Robert Elke, who is an area manager with Purina, and a dog lover. “This particular club

Camp undergoing renovations By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — Campers heading to YMCA Camp Ernst this summer will notice some changes under way. The facility, which opened at the location on Camp Ernst Road in 1930, is in the first phase of the camp’s first major renovation since the 1970s, thanks to the “For the Love of Camp Ernst Capital Campaign.” Camp Ernst executive director Eli Cochran said the goal was to raise $4 million for the renovations. Just under $3 million has currently been raised. Two projects – two new bath houses – will be completed by this summer while another – a new welcome and health center –

should be finished by this fall, she said. The remainder of the planned projects will be left for a future phase that will “hopefully get started” within the next year, Cochran said. Both new bath houses replace older structures. One of the new bath houses under construction replaces one originally built in the 1940s. It’s “lived a great life,” Cochran said, but was outdated “and really needed to be replaced.” “The new one is bigger and will be a better function for the campers,” she said. The second soon-to-be completed bath house will also replace an older one in the camp’s “leadership village.” “It serves the function we need at camp now,”

BRIEFLY Cold Spring to host Art in the Park event

The City of Cold Spring is hosting its second annual Art in the Park event from 12-4 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at the Municipal Park Grounds by the city’s Veteran’s

Memorial. The event will feature artwork from local grade schools including Donald E. Cline Elementary School, Crossroads Crossings Elementary and St. Joseph School as well as food, drinks, face painting and sidewalk chalk drawing.

Cochran said. Funded with a lead gift from the Schiff Foundation, Cochran said the new welcome and health center will house the camp’s administration functions, a health center for the camp nurse and a basement storm shelter while improving safety by allowing camp leaders to better monitor those coming and going. “It’s so great that in this climate, people still see the value of the camp experience and they want to give back and make sure camp is available for generations to come,” Cochran said. Other planned renovations include a new pool, kitchen, horse barn, fine arts center and some camper cabins, according to Cochran. “We have worked very hard to create the best camp program, but our facilities have seen a lot of kids,” she said. According to Cochran, the camp offers nine oneweek sessions and sees around 3,000 kids a summer. It’s time to put new buildings in place so the camp can “continue to carry on for the next 80 years,” she said.

ALEXANDRIA — Duke Energy is putting a charge into teaching science, technology, engineering and math in Campbell County Schools. The company has donated $12,000 to the district for technology used in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) initiatives. The money will be used to support the district's "One-To-One Technology Initiative,” a plan to put mobile computing devices in the hands of every middle and high school student for research and educational purposes, according to a news release from the district. The funding will buy 20 new iPads for the school district. The funding allows the schools to bridge the gap

between the "haves and have-nots" in the program that encourages students to bring their own devices, said Campbell County Middle School Principal David Sandlin. "The STEM program, this is a springboard off of "One-To-One Technology Initiative," Sandlin said. Area companies send teachers and administrators examples of what an ideal student project needs to look like to reflect skill businesses need and will need in the future, he said. "Industry tells us the direction they need us to go and so forth," Sandlin said. The district has already purchased enough personal computers to fill two classrooms in addition to the ones being purchased with the Duke money, he said. Along with personal devices brought in by students, the district is getting closer to a wireless device in each students' hands at the high school and middle school level, Sandlin said. Being able to connect the technology with sci-

ence, math and engineering is a big part of what the move to wireless devices in each students' hands is all about, Sandlin said. Duke Energy's support of education and STEM initiatives within the company's service territory has taken many forms, said Karen Monday, vice president of foundation and business management for Duke Energy Ohio and Duke Energy Kentucky, in the news release. The district is working to build its STEM partnerships, said Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson in the news release. The STEM coursework allows for "21st Century learning experiences" for students where they can create work where people working in a professional “real-world” capacity can provide feedback. Students will gain a better understanding of how science, math, engineering and technology are applied in a career through the STEM program and become more college and career ready, according the news release.

Southgate students raise money for new library books By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

SOUTHGATE — Students at Southgate Independent School have shown just how important books are to them by raising more than $1,100 to buy new books for the school’s library. When the budget for the library was cut from $3,500 to $2,000 due to state funding cuts, Southgate’s Media Specialist Angelic Boyers knew she had to find some way to raise money. “Out of that $2,000, $1,700 goes to programs and other obligations, leaving only $300 for new books, supplies and Reading Counts prizes,” Boyers said. After reading about the Scoops for Books fundraiser,

where students buy a paper scoop of ice cream for a quarter to put on their classes’ ice cream cone, Boyers said it seemed like a good fit for Southgate. “It’s something that’s fun for the kids since they get to pick out what flavor they want and put their scoop on the cone,” Boyers said. “Plus, since it’s only a quarter, most students are able to participate.” To make it more interesting and offer an incentive for students, the class that had the most scoops of ice cream won an ice cream party. Boyers said for some of the younger students, the fundraiser also served as a different way to learn about counting, money and height.

During the two week fundraiser, students raised $1,111 for the library, which will be used to purchase new books for every grade level and other materials, Boyers said. Principal Kim Simpson said Boyers is a very dedicated member of the school’s staff who is always looking for ways to improve the library and benefit the school. “The ice creams scoops incentive allows (Boyers) to purchase additional materials and books for the library that we might not otherwise have,” Simpson said. “It is a win-win situation because the students love the friendly competition and the library gets stocked with engaging students material.”

Preschool students point out how many scoops their class purchased for the fundraiser. From left: Vania Grayson, Emma Askins, Corbin Reynolds and Thomas Grayson. AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY RECORDER

INDEPENDENCE — For a few weeks, special needs students are learning lessons about real life at the Independence Police Department. As part of the career exploration program they attend at The Point of Northern Kentucky, six students from high schools in Kenton, Boone, Campbell and Pendleton counties are learning office skills and law enforcement with Independence’s finest. “The program gives them varied work experience, to see what they do well and what they struggle with, what they like and don’t like,” said Linda Lane, Transition Program coordinator. Lane said the program takes students to eight sites a year for

three to six weeks each to learn a variety of skills in different locations. This year they have also visited Erlanger Pet Resort, Klingenberg’s Hardware, Remke Market, Don Pablo’s Restaurant and Snappy Tomato Pizza. At the police department, students helped shred documents, compile training manuals, move furniture and enter data. Lane said students helped with clerical work at the city of Independence office as well. “Last year, they also washed police cars,” said Lane. “Everyone at the police department has been very hands-on, very accessible and friendly.” Students are accepted into the program on a case-by-case basis, and are recommended by their schools because they have a

“need for a transition program in the student’s individualized education plan.” She said many of the students go on to supportive employment. Elizabeth Hensley, a senior at Bellevue High School, visited the police department last year also, and said it has been her favorite location. “I like this a lot,” she said. “I like going to the job sites, especially the Independence Police Department, because I get to shred stuff.” Lloyd High School student Brandon Orcena, was entering data into the department’s computers, which he said he liked, just not as much as some of the other jobs he got to try. “Don Pablo’s was my favorite,” he said. “I liked doing dishes. I do it at home so it was easy

and it was fun. I do like computers. It’s fun. Everybody here is really nice to me.” Other students in the program include Justin Appiarius from Bellevue High School, Kelsey Coleman of Ryle High School, Eddie Lawson from Lloyd High School and Jon Steimetz from Pendleton County High School. Independence Police Department Secretary Catherine Weger said the city and the department welcomed the students “with open arms,” and she personally asked Mayor Chris Moriconi, City Administrator Dan Groth and Police Chief Shawn Butler for their approval. “This is such a great program,” said Weger. “They do such a great job and are so happy to be here. We’re happy to have them.”

Fleissner’s return buoys Mustangs By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

ALEXANDRIA — Bishop Brossart’s girls track and field team heads to the Class1A state track meet in Louisville May 17, intent on improving upon last year’s fifth-place state finish. The team received a big boost when senior Melanie Fleissner recently returned from an early-season injury. Fleissner is the defending state champion in the 100 meter hurdles and is Brossart’s only senior to qualify for state this year. Her comeback has fueled the Mustangs’ younger runners and provided them with some added motivation heading into state competition. “I think when you have a lot of young runners, they take things for granted,” said head coach Dave Schuh. “Seeing how much this meant to her showed the younger girls how much dedication and commitment it takes.” The team placed third at the Region 4 meet at Walton-Verona May 11. The 4x100 relay team set a school record of 50.72 in its regional victory. The 4x400 relay team also won the regional championship, while the 4x200 and 4x800 teams each placed second. The best individual performance came from Nicole Goderwis, who placed second in the 400 meter dash, just 0.05 seconds ahead of teammate Sarah Klump, who placed third. “I thought we had a chance to qualify, but we came through with really nice times,” Schuh said. “We had lots of personal bests run.” Three freshmen qualified for state in at least one individual event and as a member of at least one relay team. Goderwis, Elizabeth Patterson and Madison Bertram exceeded expectations this season. “They kept getting better and better as the season went on,” said Schuh. “They have been a nice addition.” The Mustangs qualified all four of their relay teams. Expectations are high for the 4x100, 4x200, 4x400 and 4x800 teams. Klump competes in both the 4x400 and 4x800 and also qualified individually in the 400 meter dash. The Mustangs are focused on their own performance, especially in the relay events. “We can’t control what other teams do,” said Schuh. “I think we have a chance to finish in the top four. If we can get all four relays in the top three, that would be great.” Brossart’s girls track program won six straight state championships from 1997 to 2002, setting the bar high for every team since then. This year’s edition is peaking at the right time. The Mustangs expect to set more personal bests at the University of Louisville this weekend. “For the team we have right now, we’re doing pretty well,” said Schuh. “We’re going down there with the intention of running our best times of the year.”

Campbell County repeats as champs

CAMELS CLEAR HURDLES Campbell County senior Megan Rauch long jumps. The 3A, Region 5 track and field championships were May 10 at Scott High School in Taylor Mill. JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORD By James Weber jweber@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — The last two times the Campbell County High School girls track and field team competed at Scott High School this year, they had problems with baton exchanges during the 4x200-meter relay. In the most important meet of the year, the Camels had no such issues, winning the Class 3A, Region 5 title in the event May 10 at Scott. That was one of five event wins as the Camels won their fourth straight team championship, scoring 134 points to 111 for Notre Dame. “It’s so nice my senior year to win this,” said senior Christina Heilman. “I couldn’t have asked for a better finish. We’ve had some injuries and fought through them, and I’m proud of my entire team.” The 4x200 team was Heilman with Brooke Buckler, Natalie Visse and Molly Kitchen. Their breakthrough race was a lot like the season the Camels have had, as they have struggled with injuries, most nota-

bly jumping and hurdling standout Kennedy Berkley and distance runner Abby Vandergriff. “It was tough,” said Campbell girls coach Brandon Napier. “On paper, I thought we would finish second. Everyone from jumping to throwing to sprints and distance runners gave it their ‘A’ games.”

Heilman was part of three event wins, including the 300 hurdles and 4x400 relay. Faith Roaden took Visse’s place in the 4x200. Campbell has won the 4x400 at state the last four years. “We’re going for five this year,” Heilman said. “There are other teams in the state that See TRACK, Page A7

are really good.” In the 300 hurdles, Heilman, second at state last year, matched her personal best time last week with a 44.8. She missed a clean sweep of titles by the narrowest of margins, finishing second to Boone County’s Jessica Jones in the 100 hurdles by 0.01 seconds. Officials had to look at photos to judge the winner. “She’s a really good competitor,” Heilman said. “I’m glad it was her.” Brianna Schraer won the discus and was second in shot put. Angela Lauer and Kristen Spahr were 1-2 in pole vault. Second-place finishers were Molly Kitchen (100), Taylor Robinson (800), Haylee Rose (3,200) and the 4x800 relay. In the boys meet, Wil-

liam Seiter won the pole vault and the Camel sprinters locked up four automatic state berths. The top finishers in each regional event qualified for state, with 10 at-large berths awarded statewide based on performance. The 4x100 won the regional title with Jake Johnston, Grant Mahoney, Grant Popp, Jake Zabonick. Zabonick was second in the100 and Mahoney second in the 400. The 4x400 team also finished second. Brossart was third in both boys and girls team standings in the 1A. Brossart won the 4x100 and 4x400 and was second in the 4x200 and 4x800 Nicole Goderwis was second in the 400. Michael Caldwell was second in the 1,600 and Jacob Hartig in the triple jump. Brossart was second in the boys 4x800. NCC was second in girls

and fourth in boys in the 1A team standings. Chandler Cain dominated the sprints, winning the 100, 200 and 400. She was also part of the 4x200 team that won. Aubrey Muench won the 300 hurdles. Senior Liz Gruenschlaeger and sophomore Abbie Lukens were 1-2 in both shot put and discus. Jamie Kruer was second in pole vault. Jamie Kohls was runner-up in high jump. In boys, Sam Schaefer was second in pole vault, Logan Martin in the discus and Justin Romito in high jump. NCC was second in the 4x100 and 4x400. Dayton senior Jay Nellis won the 1A shot put. Newport senior Robert Washington won the 110 hurdles. Robert Engram won the long jump. The 1A state meet is May 17, 2A May 18 and 3A May 19.

some of her old challenges, Dawn Plitzuweit started her journey towards new ones May 10. Plitzuweit, 39, was named the new head women’s basketball coach at Northern Kentucky University in a public press conference inside the Bank of Kentucky Center. Plitzuweit replaces Nancy Winstel, who retired after 636 wins, two national championships and 29 seasons, and Plitzuweit will lead the Norse into their first season of Division I competition this fall. “We were very familiar with Dawn and her ability to get the best and the most out of her players,” NKU athletic director Scott Eaton said. “She knows the game, is an outstanding recruiter and a great person. Her players have excelled in the classroom as well as on the court, and she is a great fit for NKU as we make the transition to Division I.”

Plitzuweit, a Wisconsin native, was associate head coach at Michigan in the Big 10, helping the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament last season. At the Division I level, she also worked at the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin-Green Bay. In Division II, she played at Michigan Tech, scoring nearly 1,400 career points and playing in the NCAA Tournament every year. She played against NKU at Regents Hall as a freshman. Her first head coaching stint came at D-II Grand Valley State in Michigan, where she played against Winstel and NKU four times. Plitzuweit won a national title with GVSU in 2006, two years before Winstel won her second with the Norse. “When we started at Grand Valley, we thought, ‘who do we want to model ourselves after?’ and that answer was Nancy Winstel,” Plitzuweit said. A defensive-minded coach, she looks at basketball through the eyes

of a math student, preaching low-percentage shots on defense and high-percentage ones on offense. “We’ll try to outwork people,” she said. “We’ll try to pick up full court and get stops.” Plitzuweit planned to get to work immediately with not only the coaching transition, but the move to Division I. NKU will play a full regularseason schedule including 18 conference games in the Atlantic Sun, but will not be eligible for the postseason until 2017. Florida Gulf Coast dominated the league last year, going 21-0 in league games and 32-4 overall, and that was the only ASun team the new NKU coach saw on film last year while helping Michigan prepare. She will have plenty of time to learn her new opponents next winter, as she prepares her team for the new challenge. “Obviously, the competition level is greater,” she said. “Our goal is to focus on getting better every day and see where it takes us.”

Life, liberty and pursuit of happiness I grew up in Pendleton County on my family’s farm. It was there that I first learned the most important principles for life. I would raise baby calves off of a bucket until I could wean them and then raised them and sold them. Through my work with beef cattle and in tobacco at a young age, when I was 16 I bought my first car, paid for it with cash, no loan, and it was a brand new car. But that’s where I got my work ethic and started running my own small business there when I was 14, 15 years old. I then went to work for Wise-

way Supply as their fourth employee. We grew that company to what it is today. I worked in the private sector for 20 years Gary Moore before ever COMMUNITY seeking public RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST office. Because of my private sector experience and understanding the importance of not putting up barriers to rapid growth and development that we

were seeing and by keeping a handle on all departmental spending, we have been able to keep taxes low and government out of the way. I’m not sure others would have been able to do that. I know I have, and the success is in the numbers. Boone County is a great success story with 13,000 jobs created, taxes lowered, and revenues increased all under my tenure. This was done by using my experience in the private sector, listening to businesses and individuals, and taking decisive conservative actions.

Deficit reduction must reflect American values Deficit reduction is an important national priority, vital to our long-term economic opportunity and security. But just because it’s important doesn’t mean that it can be undertaken without regard to our national values. Unfortunately, the House Agricultural Committee left values on the sideline last week when it moved forward with a shocking proposal to cut food assistance for our nation’s hungry by over $33 billion. That it was done in the name of deficit reduction does not excuse the fact that cuts to anti-hunger programs at a time when need has never been greater are both reckless and short-sighted. Taking care of our neighbors is an American value. Every day the members of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks see this partnership reflected in the generous support of our volunteers and donors, and we are grateful that this value is reflected in Washington through important anti-hunger programs like SNAP, formerly Food Stamps. Some like to point to the great work that local food pantries are doing to suggest that hunger is better solved by charity at the

community level. Speaking from the frontlines, please hear us when we say that charity cannot do it alone. In fact, estimates suggest that charity Tamara provides only Sandberg about 6 percent COMMUNITY of all the food RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST assistance in the United States. Hunger is a national problem and it needs a national solution that starts with a strong federal commitment to programs like SNAP. Kentucky’s food banks are struggling to meet the tremendous increase in need for food assistance resulting from the Great Recession. We saw demand for emergency food assistance increase an astounding 84 percent from 2006 to 2010. We are already struggling to keep up with this increased demand because of declining federal support for the Emergency Food Assistance Program, which provides a bulk of the food distributed by our members. If SNAP were cut, there is no way that we would be able to make up the difference. Food banks need more supply, not more de-

mand. Protecting the poor is not a partisan issue, and balancing the budget does not have to be either. Our nation has a long, bipartisan commitment to low-income safety net programs like SNAP in past deficit reduction agreements. The three major deficit-reduction packages of the last two decades – the 1990, 1993, and 1997 packages – all adhered to this principle, as did the recent bipartisan Bowles-Simpson Commission. The American people deserve a thoughtful dialog about real solutions, not political showmanship. Congress should put the nation’s interests first and meet in the middle to craft policies that spur economic recovery, ensure broad and sustainable opportunity, and protect families when opportunity remains out of reach, including making sure that SNAP and food pantries are here to put food on the table until struggling Americans are back on their feet. Tamara Sandberg is the executive director of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks. The association is made up of seven Feeding America food banks serving all 120 counties of Kentucky.

Business mindset needed in D.C. I’m running for U.S. Congress because Congress is bankrupting America. The federal government spends $3.8 trillion per year while only receiving revenue of $2.2 trillion. The federal debt is now approaching $16 trillion. I want the job to go and clean up this mess. The federal government’s budget for the following programs is $2.343 trillion Social Security ($820 billion), welfare ($717 billion), Medicare ($523 billion) and Medicaid ($283 billion). If these programs are not solved quickly, the great American experiment of selfrule is over. It’s time for a business mindset to solve political disasters. I’m optimistic in this mission because I’m convinced that at least 40 percent of the cost of these programs is littered with waste and fraud. That amounts to $937 billion. This fact has caused me to propose that the federal government must exit the management of these four programs over a 10-year period. It’s America’s only hope. The federal government does not solve problems, they only expand them. Our seniors need not be concerned as I believe once

these programs are properly managed, the quality of these programs will improve. The Social Security ProTom gram is a perWurtz fect illustration why the federal COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST government COLUMNIST should have never managed retirement benefits. The Social Security Act of 1935 established a retirement age of 65. In 1935, life expectancy was 61.7 years. The formula was life expectancy plus 3.3 years. Today, life expectancy is 78.7 years. If the same formula was applied today, Social Security would kick in at age 82. This program was designed as a safety net if an American beat the life expectancy odds. All of us would have planned our lives differently if politicians had properly done their jobs. Instead, we are now slaves to a massive government bureaucracy. So what went wrong? Social Security was turned over to politicians to manage and securing votes became more impor-

tant than fiscal responsibility. Social Security should have been developed in the free market and it would not be an issue today. America needs a leader who’s willing to fight the big battles today instead of delaying these issues for our children and grandchildren to deal with. One of my favorite Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, so my child may have peace.” We need to clean this mess up before our kids realize what we’ve done. I’m terrified that America’s greatest generation is going to be followed by America’s worst generation. That’s unacceptable! Please visit www.TomWurtz.com to learn more. I’ve posted over 70,000 words outlining my positions on all the issues and I post new articles every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’ve dedicated my campaign to voter education. I urge you to give me a chance to fight these battles by voting for me in the May 22 Republican primary. Tom Wurtz, of Fort Mitchell, is a candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress.

I have fought vigorously to protect liberty at its earliest stages. As a man of faith, I believe life begins at conception and as the protectors of rights, the government must give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. For my actions and convictions, I was humbled to be the only candidate endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life and Northern Kentucky Right to Life. This is a mantle that I take very seriously and will work tirelessly to maintain my flawless pro-life record. There has been much talk

over the past few weeks about the involvement of super PACs and endorsements. I want to take this opportunity to say that though I am very proud to have the endorsements of colleagues, respected individuals, and revered organizations, the most important endorsement for me will be that of the people of the Fourth District on May 22. I ask for your support, your prayers, and your vote. Gary Moore is a candidate for the Fourth District House Republican nomination.

Law cracks down on pill mills

Kentucky has taken a significant step forward in its effort to fight prescription drug abuse. On April 24, I joined members of the House and Senate and law enforcement from across the commonwealth as Gov. Steve Beshear signed House Bill 1 to combat an epidemic that claims more than 1,000 lives each year in Kentucky. I would like to thank Governor Beshear, Speaker Stumbo, Senators Jenson and Stivers and the other Jack Conway members of COMMUNITY the Kentucky RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST House and Senate who put politics aside to address one of the most serious threats facing Kentucky. I am pleased to say that HB 1, which takes effect on July 12, 2012, includes many of the key provisions I supported during the legislative process. First and foremost, I want to assure Kentuckians that this legislation is not designed to punish those who are legitimately being treated for pain, but rather to crack down on the unscrupulous pill mill operators who are lining their pockets as they flood our streets with deadly prescription narcotics. HB 1 will also require prescribers of Schedule II and III painkillers, with reasonable exceptions for anesthesia, surgery and other practices, to register and use Kentucky’s prescription drug monitoring program (KASPER). Only about 25 percent of prescribers currently use KASPER. Of those, 90 percent say it has changed their prescribing habits. Here are several other key provisions of HB 1: » Pain Management Facilities must be owned by a physician holding an active Kentucky medical license and a physician specially trained in pain management is required to be on the premises at least 50 percent of the time patients are present. » Pain Management Facilities must accept private health insurance as an allowable form of payment. » Requirement that licensing boards issue regulations putting limitations on “in office” dispensing to combat Florida-style “pill mills.”

ABOUT LETTERS AND COLUMNS We welcome your comments on editorials, columns, stories or other topics important to you in the Community Recorder. Include your name, address and phone number(s) so we may verify your letter. Letters of 200 or fewer words and columns of 500 or fewer words have the best chance of being published. All submissions may be edited for length, accuracy and clarity. Deadline: Noon Monday E-mail: mshaw@community press.com Fax: 283-7285. U.S. mail: See box below Letters, columns and articles submitted to the Community Recorder may be published or distributed in print, electronic or other forms.

» Doctors and nurses must check KASPER prior to dispensing Schedule II or III drugs, with exceptions for emergency services, hospice care and other limited cases. » Commonwealth’s and county attorneys shall report to the attorney general within three days any indictment of a medical professional for a felony drug offense. There is one area where HB 1 fell short. Law enforcement still needs greater access to KASPER data so that we may identify and investigate disturbing prescribing and dispensing trends. Some in the medical community are fearful of this increased oversight. My message to them is simple; let’s talk. Let’s work together to find ways to better share the data so that we can ferret out those very few bad actors who are fueling this epidemic. The majority of the doctors I’ve spoken with want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Kentucky loses three people every day to prescription drug overdoses. As Kentucky’s chief law officer, I am grateful for this lifesaving legislation. I assure you, I will work with the Legislature and the Beshear administration to implement this new law as efficiently and effectively as possible. Working together, we can ensure a brighter future for Kentucky families. Jack Conway is Kentucky’s attorney general.

N. Ky. prepares for festival season By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

Festival-goers have plenty of options to choose from in cities throughout Northern Kentucky. From festivals celebrating holidays and heritage to those that celebrate local foods like Glier’s Goettafest, the Northern Kentucky region offers a wide array of festival fun to residents and visitors. In Newport, where back-toback festivals fill the summer months, festival planning was spurred by the region’s annual Riverfest during Labor Day weekend. City Manager Thomas Fromme said when Riverfest began decades ago, Newport staff saw that their city, particularly Riverboat Row which runs along the Ohio River, was a very viable option for successful festivals. “It’s just such a great venue for festivals,” Fromme said. “There is the riverfront, a view of Cincinnati, easy access and plenty of parking in the area.” The city began hosting its annual Italianfest, celebrating Newport’s rich Italian heritage, in 1991 and has since added several other festivals.

The Zinzinnati Bierband had members of the crowd dancing to the music during Maifest in Covington's Mainstrausse Village in 2011. FILE PHOTO With the location of Newport being in the the center of the Cincinnati region, city staff realized that putting on festivals would be a good way to pro-

mote tourism and the city’s businesses, Fromme said. “These festivals promote the city and cause a ripple effect, benefiting local businesses,”

Fromme said. In Covington, MainStrasse Village is another popular place for festivals and events. The MainStrasse Village As-

sociation administrative coordinator Donna Kremer said through their yearly festivals like Maifest, Oktoberfest, they also hope to promote their city, while giving people a chance to come out and have a good time. Kremer said one reason the association hosts these events is to raise funds for their nonprofit group. “Our mission is to promote Covington,” Kremer said. “We hope to continue to make it a more inviting place to visit.” In Union, the city is already in preparation for their biggest event of the year, Union Celebrates America, held the weekend before the Fourth of July. Karen Franxman, Union’s city events coordinator, said since Union doesn’t really have a core like other areas and instead has neighborhoods scattered throughout the city, she feels it important to bring everyone together for events like Union Celebrates America. “These events give residents a chance to build a community connection and really get that sense of community with each other,” Franxman said. “It’s a great chance for residents and visitors to come out and have some fun together.”

MAY 17, 2012 • ALEXANDRIA RECORDER • B3

Bran muffin batter can be kept in refrigerator When the kids were younger and something went haywire in their lives, Rita they would Heikenfeld wonder why. I RITA’S KITCHEN would say “there’s a reason for everything.” Those are what we call “teachable moments.” Well, the same thing happened to me yesterday at suppertime. I asked my husband, Frank, if we had gas in the grill since I had a nice flat iron steak thawed out. The answer was “yes,” so he took the steak out to the grill. Then the answer got switched to “no.” We were out of gas. I didn’t want to use the stovetop grill pan (too messy) so I used the broiler. Oh my gosh, the steak turned out perfect. And I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I broiled any kind of meat. Now I’m a fan of broiling again. So even when you’re older, there are still teachable moments.

Broiled flat iron steak

I’ve mentioned before how much I like this cut of meat. It has the tenderness of beef tenderloin and the beefy flavor of chuck, since it is part of the chuck. This method works for flank steak as well. Score steak with knife on both sides. Rub with olive oil, then rub in a bit of garlic on each side. Season with salt and pepper. Broil 4 inches under broiler, about 6 minutes or so on each side for medium.

Always-ready refrigerator bran muffins The batter can be kept tow to three weeks in the refrigerator. Next time I make the batter, I’m going to use part whole wheat

Mint: Really invasive, so best grown in a container. Mint keeps ants away. Spearmint is sweeter and more mild than peppermint. Thyme: A pretty border herb. Deer generally stay away from areas where thyme is grown. Oregano: A few wet oregano sprigs, placed on grill before grilling red meats, may help block carcinogens that form. Savory: The bean herb, it helps you digest beans. An ingredient in salt-free herb blends. Rosemary: Good for memory and contains anti-cancer antioxidants. In our area, it is hardy to about 15 degrees outside, so bring indoors in winter.

The batter for these bran muffins can be kept in the refrigerator and baked on an as-needed basis. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

flour. My batter lasted two weeks before I used it up. Not a real sweet muffin. I love having this batter on an as-needed basis. 3 cups whole bran breakfast cereal (not flakes) 1 cup boiling water 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 stick butter 3 large eggs 2½ cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 2 cups buttermilk (I used whole buttermilk) 1½ teaspoons vanilla Extra sugar for sprinkling on top (raw sugar is good) optional

Add water to cereal and stir until cereal is moistened. Set aside. Cream brown sugar with butter until smooth. Add eggs and beat until light. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk and vanilla until blended. If not baking at once, transfer to container, cover and refrigerate 2-3 weeks. When ready to bake, spoon mixture, about ¼ cup for each muffin, into buttered or sprayed muffin tins, filling 2⁄3 full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake in preheated

400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or so until golden. Variations: Sprinkle one tablespoon of any of these over each muffin before baking: Chopped dried fruit, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts or a combination of two.

Planting herbs

You can plant different kinds of herbs together in the same container as long as they have the same soil, water and light requirements. Flavors of sweet and savory herbs do not transfer. Basil: Plant basil next to your tomatoes for better tasting, healthier tomatoes. Basil helps keep flies and mosquitoes away.

GOT COINS?

Update: Brown Hotel Hot Browns The original recipe contains 1 quart whipping cream. I understand now the recipe can be made with 2 cups, if you like. Someone asked if they could substitute milk. Yes, half-amd-half, whole or regular milk would work fine. The sauce won’t be as rich, so you might want to add a bit more flour.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults should aim for 30 or more minutes per day of moderate physical activity on five or more days of the week. Children should aim for 60 minutes of physical activity a day. Additionally, individuals need to engage in musclestrengthening activities that work all major muscles groups two or more days per week. These activities can be done in 10-minute intervals. Aerobic activity is anything that gets you breathing harder and your heart pumping faster. Taking an evening walk on a walking trail or through your neighborhood can help you reach 2.5 hours a week, as long as you’re walking at a brisk pace. Bicycling or roller skating are also good forms of exercise that can be done in your built environment. If you have a chronic condition or disability, you can still reap the benefits of physical activity, but you should check with your doctor before your start any exercise program.

Most of us know that regular physical activity can help prevent heart disease and type 2 diabetes, reduce the risk of some cancers, help you maintain a healthy weight, strengthen muscles and bones, and improve your mental health. Regardless of what we know about the health benefits, most of us do not get the exercise we need. One way you can increase your activity level is by using your built environment, including sidewalks, stoplights, trails and parks. It may be appealing for those just beginning an exercise program to start by using the built environment because it’s close to home and doesn’t require the costs of a gym membership.

As I write this, 40 days stand between me and a milestone in my life; turning 40. Wow, it’s hard to believe that I will be turning an age I once truly deemed “old.” Today, however, I know that age is relative and really just a number. I can prove it to. Just the other day, our little 4-year old, Emmiefaith had a friend over to play. Not knowing me very well, she had a thousand questions for her new friends’ mother, one of them being, “how old are you?” “How old do you think I am?” was my reply. (Any sensible woman, on the verge of paying top dollar for wrinkle cream, she swore she would never need, knows that fouryear olds have a keen sense about age. So, I politely waited for her to throw out a nice number in the early twenties.) “Ninety,” she said and casually scampered down the stairs and out the front door. O.K. so maybe 4-yearolds don’t really understand age, but little McKenzie reminded me of something that day. Regardless of how you view age, one thing is for sure. We’re not going to get younger. So if you have any goals, plans, dreams, or changes you want to make in life, there’s no time like the

present. I realized the other day that I’m not quite where I Julie House thought COMMUNITY I’d be at RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST this point in my life. I still have goals to achieve in life. There are still tweaks I need to make in my health and wellness plan. I was supposed to have the “patience of Job” where my children are concerned by now. (I don’t.) I had hoped to be a more understanding wife, more loving and giving daughter, a friendlier neighbor. Well, I may not be able to change the world in the next 40 days, but I can have an impact on my home and those in my life. Join me over the next forty days, and make changes to your daily routine that will make your day brighter, your children sweeter and the love you have for your spouse deeper. “Where is that pill?” you ask. It’s no pill. Its three simple little steps my son reminded me of coming home from a church service with a neighbor just a few weeks ago. “Mom, did you know that if we want to grow

up right, we’re supposed to read the Bible every day, pray a lot and go to church whenever we can?” Hmmm, I thought for a minute. Yes, yes I know that! It’s so simple. Why, do we choose only one or two (or none) and expect to navigate this crazy world? Over the next 40 days, I plan to take my son’s advice and implement his three step plan for success. Won’t you join me? Here’s what the Bible says, you may receive if you come along with me. “So obey the commands of the Lord your God by walking in His ways and fearing Him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land of flowing streams and pools of water, with fountains and springs that gush out in the valleys and hills.” Deuteronomy 8:6-7. (Sounds like a vacation resort, doesn’t it?) Read, pray and surround yourself with Christian fellowship, and watch God take you there!

Ash/maple disease drops leaves Question: Leaves with brown spots and blotches are falling off my ash and maple trees. Will the trees survive? Answer: The symptoms you describe are referred to as “anthracnose disease,” which is caused by an airMike borne Klahr fungus HORTICULTURE during CONCERNS rainy days of spring. Anthracnose diseases usually look worse than they are, and the tree is not usually killed by the disease. Sprays are not usually even needed. Twigs and branches may develop cankers or dead areas that girdle the stem, causing death of some branch tips, especially with dogwoods and sycamores. Premature leaf drop commonly occurs on infected trees. Anthracnose is not fatal (except for dogwoods in some circumstances), however, severe defoliation from anthracnose year after year can seriously weaken trees. Symptoms on ash trees include small, brown circular spots on leaves, plus larger, irregular brown blotches and distortion of leaflets. Infected leaflets frequently drop from the tree. Anthracnose on maple trees results in irregular, brown to black dead

Other OnStar emergency services include Injury Severity Predictor and First Assist. All Cadillac models come with 1 year of OnStar service.

Diagnostics by OnStar With best-in-class diagnostics from OnStar[3], maintaining your Cadillac can be as simple as checking your email or your OnStar MyLink mobile app. Every month you can receive an email with the status of key operating systems. All Cadillac models come with 1 year of OnStar service.

Security by OnStar If you’ve reported your Cadillac stolen, OnStar[3] can use GPS technology to help authorities quickly locate and recover it. On most Cadillac models, an Advisor can send a Stolen Vehicle Slowdown® or Remote Ignition Block signal to help authorities safely recover it. All Cadillac models come with 1 year of OnStar service.
