Horse shows to be judged by teens By Chris Mayhew
When it comes to evaluating horses and riding, one group of Campbell County 4-H teens are the judges – in training. The 4-H judging team works to hone their skills at evaluating other riders or horse showing contests. The teens compete as a group, but the judging team members are also individually ranked on their skills. And the teen judges get to see how their own evaluations of a performance match up with the real judges of the contest. They learn horse anatomy, and the intricate dos and don’ts for each particular style. For example, horses in Western Pleasure riding shows are supposed to be so gentle and smooth that someone’s grandmother could ride them, said Marylu Steffen of Alexandria who along with Amber Bankemper coaches judging team. Steffen has coached judging since her daughter Lauren became involved in 2002. Most of the girls are planning to be involved in some type of horse-related career, Marylu said. They can even choose to pursue becoming a professional show judge, she said. Past members of the judging club have going on to become veterinarians, farriers caring for hooves and extension service agents, she said. Abbi Wells, 14, of Alexandria, a senior in 4-H, also shows miniature horses. But through judging,
The Campbell County 4-H Judging Team competed together at the Kentucky State 4-H Judging Contest at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington June 3. Campbell County’s senior team took first place as the overall senior team including Lauren Steffen, Abbi Wells, Lauren Giesman and Delaney Hollingsworth. In the competition’s categories the senior team took third place in “Halter,” first in “Performance,” and first in “Reasons.” The senior team has been invited to compete at the Southern Regionals July 2631 in Clemson, S.C. Campbell County’s junior team took second overall with the team of Hannah Frede, Jamie Wolfzorn, Jamie Henley and Molly Berkemeyer. In the categories the junior team took fifth place in “Halter,” and third place in “Performance.” The following are individual results in the state competition: • Junior Individual, Halter: Hannah Frede seventh place. • Senior Individual, Halter: Abbi Wells second place. • Junior Individual, Performance: Jamie Henly ninth place. • Senior Individual, Performance: Lauren Steffen eighth place, and Lauren Giesman ninth place. • Senior Individual, Reasons: Delaney Hollingsworth fifth place; Lauren Giesman, seventh place; and Abbi Wells, ninth place. • Junior Individual, Overall: Hannah Frede seventh place. • Senior Individual, Overall: Abbi Wells 10th place. Wells said she gets a better understanding of what to do and what not to do in competitions herself. “I like having the bond with the horse and the joy of competing,” Wells said. Lauren Steffen, 17, a senior in 4-H, shows horses in the Western Pleasure division. Judging gives her an advantage in shows. “It teaches you a lot about what you want to look for when you’re showing your own horse and what the judges look for,” Steffen said. For 4-H judging, the competition is divided into a junior class and a senior class. Juniors get to pick four horses they like in a show, but seniors also have to site the reasons why they like a horse in a show.
“You have to pick out like every detail from head to toe,” Steffen said. Delaney Hollingsworth of Alexandria, a senior in 4-H, said she doesn’t have a horse right now, but she likes staying involved with horses through the judging team. Hollingsworth has been involved since age 5 going to shows in the Western Pleasure, English Pleasure and also reining. Hollingsworth said she has a fellowship with her teammates, and she likes testing her abilities by comparing her results to those of the professional judges. “I like seeing what my perspective is compared to the judge,” she said.
Tracy Bartlett Siemer’s friends have always thought of her as a superhero. After battling cancer for nearly 20 years, including multiple recurrences, Siemer is finally being depicted as such – in a comic book created by her and her friends. In the story, Siemer, as a Superwoman character, fights the Crazy Blonde Diva, who can’t wait to give Siemer a dose of cancer. “When Tracy’s cancer returned in 2009, it felt different to her than the other times it returned,” said Jackie Waters, Siemer’s sister. “It felt surreal. So I suggested that she name her cancer. We had already dubbed her Superwoman T-Si since 2000 - she named herself that because she knew that she had to be strong for everyone else when her cancer returned that time so she took on the superman persona - so it seemed like naming her cancer, her nemesis, was a good way to deal with it this time.” Since 1991, the 43-year-old from Wilder has fought the rare type of brain cancer, mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, and it has come back three times, resulting in multiple surgeries. Now, Siemer and her friends hope to get 6,935 comic books into people’s hands, “in the hopes of inspiring others with my sister’s story of surviving a cancer for over 19 years as of June 12, 2010.” That would be 6,935 days. Each of Siemer’s friends is also featured in the comic. “Each one (has) their superfriend name and their superpower,” Waters said. “Many people ask Tracy and our family how she deals with everything that she as been through and our comment is that we deal with it in faith and fun. “Tracy and I realize that so many people go through so much and we hope by sharing Tracy’s journey and the comic book that it will inspire someone that is in need of some inspiration. “That is our pay it forward for all the great people (who) have supported and prayed for Tracy and our family.” They also want to help Siemer financially. “She has some strong side effects from her chemo, surgeries and radiation treatments,” Waters said. “Being a single mom and not being able to work with all her medical bills is tough.” Interested in buying the comic?

Economic authority president departing By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
John Austin, president of the Campbell County Economic Progress Authority since August 2009 has resigned to take a job in the private sector. The authority is an independent economic development organization affiliated with the Campbell County Fiscal Court. Austin, 29, was the second president of the CCEPA, and a process to hire a replacement has started, said Fred Macke of Fort Thomas, chairman of the authority. Macke said he understood Austinâ€™s work ethic and background would make the CCEPA successful

when he was initially hired. â€œI was just hoping that we could keep him a little longer than we did,â€? Macke said. â€œWe wish John all the luck and success in the world.â€? There are no plans to deviate from the course Austin has charted as president, Macke said. Macke said the authority will advertise for a new president within the next 30 days. Austin, who has a law degree from the University of Dayton Law School, is leaving for a position in the accounting and auditing firm of Ernst & Youngâ€™s Cincinnati office. Austin said he will be working in the local tax department specializing in credits and incentives. Before becoming president of the CCEPA, Austin spent two years working for the Fiscal Court as a government relations manager and senior policy analyst. Austin said the opportunity he was presented with to work at Ernst & Young was too good to pass up, but heâ€™ll miss working with the county. â€œItâ€™s a great opportunity here,â€? Austin said. â€œI have a passion for economic development, I see a lot of posi-

authority was responsible for buying land and attracting the Sara Lee plant, formerly known as Kahnâ€™s, south of Alexandria. There is now also a focus on promoting and enhancing existing assets from the riverfront areas to the area around Northern Kentucky University, as well as the countyâ€™s recreation, agriculture and entertainment, Austin said. The authority has been working on what at first might sound like some unlikely connections, including connecting Bellevue and farm-owners in the county together, he said. â€œBellevue is looking for ways to promote the locally
grown food movement,â€? Austin said. And in terms of marketing, the authority has been working with the Campbell County Business Development Corporation to create a new website www.campbellcountyky.org that went live Friday, June 18, he said. The website will include traditional information found on the county website, but also go beyond with featured sections promoting the area to people considering doing business or living in Campbell County, Austin said. Another new initiative launched was an existing business development program, he said. More than
80 percent of job growth and capital outlay in the county comes from businesses already in the area, Austin said. Austin said heâ€™s visited with 25 businesses in the county, compiling information from some of them about their needs and connecting some with financial and other resources. Austin said when Fabritec International in Cold Spring had a question about tapping in to NKUâ€™s students and resources, he made sure they were put in touch with the right people at the university. In the case of StoneBrook Winery in Camp Springs, Austin said he was able to highlight a couple of financial resources available to the owner to help in growing the business. The authorityâ€™s original focus of land development continues, Austin said. At the June 16 Fiscal Court meeting the county formally authorized the abandonment of an old section of Bob Huber Drive by the Sara Lee plant that bisected property owned by the authority. â€œHaving that road run through basically makes it useless, very small acreage,â€? Austin said. The total acreage of the property the road bisected was about 5.5 acres fronting U.S. 27, he said. â€œWe currently own about 15 or 16 acres of land out by Sara Lee and weâ€™re always looking to market that property and development property,â€? Austin said.

Cold Spring resident paddles for river By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Ohio River groups
While Cold Spring resident Mick Vank paddles in the Ohio River for fun, but he’s about to join the board of a group with a more serious goal of educating people about the importance of water quality. Vank is the newest member of the Ohio River Foundation’s Board. Over the weekend of June 12-13 he was one of the about 20 people who completed the foundation’s almost 19-mile Great Ohio River Paddle (GORP). GORP had fewer paddlers (about 65 signed up this year) than the more well-known June 24-26 Paddlefest event at Coney Island where more than 1,800 paddlers are registered to make the trip to Cincinnati’s Public Landing near Sawyer Point. Paddlefest is larger in

For information visit www.ohioriverway.org. • The Ohio River Foundation focuses on water quality issues. For information about the group’s programs and visit the website www.ohioriverfdn.org. terms of attendance because of the short distance and the fact that the Ohio River typically has a very gentle current this time of year, Vank said. “There’s a lot of people, and it’s just fun to see so many people on the river, using the river and enjoying the river,” he said. Vank has participated in Paddlefest since its inception, and will again this year. The Ohio River can be an exceptional recreational asset, Vank said. “People in Cincinnati sometimes say, ‘Ooh, the Ohio River,’ but it’s not that bad,” he said. Vank said there were
basically two groups of people who went on GORP June 12-13: People who were interested in the ecology of the river, and people more interested in touring the river. Vank said he was in the latter “tourist” group. Because of rain, only about 20 people ended up making the full trip from Higginsport, Ohio to Neville, Ohio for the GORP trip, Vank said. The highlight of the tour was going through the lock at Meldahl Dam and there was a lunch stop in Augusta, Ky., he said. “Actually, I found paddling in the river really isn’t

Vank said the biggest obstacle to clean water is wastewater effluent and untreated water from combined sewer overflows that happen whenever there are heavy rains. It’s issues of water quality that the Ohio River Foundation board, which meets quarterly, deals with. Richard Cogen, executive director of the Ohio River Foundation, said the pur-
pose of the foundation is to educate people about the river as a resource, issues that are currently plaguing the river and restoration efforts. For Vank, who works as the city manager of City of Cold Spring, paddling the region’s rivers and lakes in a kayak is an almost yearround activity. He started paddling 17 years ago after going on a white water rafting trip.
It’s good exercise, but also very peaceful and a good way to observe wildlife because they often don’t hear a person coming in a kayak, he said. Vank said he and his wife take kayaks with them everywhere they travel and it’s a good way to meet other people who like to kayak or canoe. “Or if you just want to clear your head, it’s a great way to relax,” he said.
Annual report outlines Vision 2015 progress Vision 2015 released its fourth annual report to the community since the 2006 launch of the Vision 2015 “Shaping Our Future” community report. The hard copy report takes a focused approach to highlighting community progress and continued collaboration. Since its inception, Vision 2015 has been an intermediary; connecting the dots so that the right
people and organizations are identified for the right tasks. Vision 2015 also has a broader role: bringing leaders and creative thinkers to the table in order to promote systemic, sustainable change in nine Northern Kentucky counties and in collaboration with groups throughout Greater Cincinnati. The 2009-2010 annual report provides examples of Vision 2015’s role as a catalyst for progress and
highlights key successes and challenges faced by our region. The piece also summarizes community accomplishes over the past five years and thanks those who have taken an active role in moving this community forward. Among the projects highlighted in the report is the transformation of the Northern Kentucky Council of Partners into the Northern Kentucky Education Council, a
renewed body that includes representatives from the education, business, and community sectors including The Education Alliance of Northern Kentucky and the Vision 2015 Education Implementation Team. The council will serve as the conduit for the established regional goals in education. In conjunction with the annual report, Vision 2015 is also launching a redesigned website which
features a modern look and streamlined site navigation for easier use. The fresh format has been updated with new content on the latest developments taking place in each of the six focus areas of Vision 2015.

County clarifying record on Ameresco By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Before the Campbell County Fiscal Court’s decision to approve pursuing an energy savings plan with Ameresco there was an email campaign against the proposed plan. In response, Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery has sent out his own e-mail in the wake of the Fiscal Court’s June 2 decision to approve the federally-funded $275,520 project with Ameresco. Pendery said he didn’t want the e-mails sent by others to leave any “unfortunate impressions.” “When we see something that is not accurate we ought to react and let people know what the facts are,” Pendery said. In Pendery’s e-mail, he
explains how the attacks that the contract was not competitively bid were misleading because the county advertised for proposals qualified under Kentucky law to “do comprehensive energy performance evaluations.” According to Pendery’s e-mail: “The request was for engineering work, not for bids by contractors, and the process followed a special Kentucky statute intended for this purpose.” Although Pendery’s email does not mention Erik Hermes, the owner of Hermes Construction in Wilder and a leader of Campbell County’s Tea Party movement, was one of the people sending out e-mails about the Ameresco project. Hermes’ e-mail called out the Fiscal Court for not taking competitive bids and questioned the satisfaction other communities have had using Ameresco in the past. Hermes said while it is true that what the county originally asked for was a
guaranteed energy savings contract, that’s not what was approved. Ameresco originally submitted a plan for a $1.6-million energy efficiency study that was turned down by Fiscal Court. The smaller contract, focusing on light fixture replacements, did not contain an energy savings guarantee. “In his e-mail he’s not being forthright because he didn’t specifically state the contract awarded is not a guaranteed savings contract,” Hermes said of Pendery’s e-mail. Hermes said he also asked the county administrator to include provisions for local contractors in the contract, something that wasn’t always in the Ameresco contract. Hermes said he doesn’t take offense to the e-mail because he’s not mentioned by name. “It’s possible he could be talking about something else,” Hermes said of Pen-

Pendery’s e-mail The following is Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery’s e-mail to people about the county’s decision on the Ameresco contract: Dear Citizens, Following is a message from Steve Pendery, Judge/Executive. You may have received e-mails recently containing some serious misinformation about an energy saving project the Fiscal Court has been working on for over a year. In order to set the record straight, here are the facts: Federal money became available for energy efficiency work as part of the stimulus package. In order to qualify, the Fiscal Court had to submit a plan to the feds for “County energy efficiency and conservation.” With the idea of satisfying the federal grant requirements, in the summer of 2009 the County advertised a request for proposals that was directed to companies qualified under Kentucky state law to do comprehensive energy performance evaluations. The request was for engineering work, not for bids by contractors, and the
process followed a special Kentucky statute intended for this purpose. Kentucky law lays out a turnkey solution for energy audits like this. Under the law, the firm selected by the Fiscal Court would do evaluations of all county facilities, making detailed recommendations, providing specifications, and if given the go ahead on the work, handling the hiring of the contractors, and supervising their work. The Campbell County Fiscal Court followed the law, hiring one of the few companies qualified with the state to do this work, a company named Ameresco. The Fiscal Court did have the foresight to add a provision to Ameresco’s contract that calls for Ameresco to use its “best efforts” to use contractors and suppliers based in Campbell County, assuming they are qualified and competitive relative to cost. The project ultimately proposed is to use only federal money, and is expected to result in more than $37,000 savings each year (at current utility rates) to the County.
The County will also immediately qualify for Duke Energy rebates of about $10,000. Payback on the federal money is estimated to take only 7 years – and no local money is to be invested in the project. With these facts in mind, the Fiscal Court voted to approve a contract with Ameresco at its June 2nd meeting. To sum up, the Fiscal Court advertised for bids from companies qualified under Kentucky law to supply comprehensive energy performance evaluations, selected such a company, and submitted their name and proposal as our “plan”, in order to qualify for federal money. Local contractors and suppliers were protected by a provision in the contract of the winning bidder. Federal money is being used to produce significant savings for local taxpayers, with no local money being required. I hope you find this information to be useful. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or call my office at 859-547-1803.
dery’s e-mail. Mike Combs, a member of the Campbell County School District Board of Education said he’s concerned about some of the questions raised in some of the e-mails that were circulated because adopting
energy efficiency plans is being pushed by Duke Energy. Combs said Campbell County Schools is in the early stages of considering accepting proposals for similar energy savings plans. Since it’s federal money
being spent, public agencies should consider taking and spending the money since Northern Kentucky receives only about a third of tax dollars collected from the federal government back in terms of investment in the community, Combs said.

Muench at Marietta
Corryn Muench, a Newport Central Catholic High School graduate, recently completed her second season with the Marietta College women’s track and field team. Muench, a sophomore, earned All-OAC honors after helping Marietta post victories in both the 4x100 meter Relay and 4x400 meter Relay at the 2010 OAC Outdoor Championship. The Pioneers also provisionally qualified for the 2010 NCAA Division III Outdoor Championship in both events. Seventh-year Head Coach Derek Stanley guided the Pioneers to their best-ever finish at the 2010 OAC Indoor Championship. Keyed by 15 All-OAC performances and one OAC champion, the women placed second and the men took fifth. Marietta’s women then matched their runner-up finish and the men placed eighth at the 2010 OAC Outdoor Championship. The Pioneers won six event titles and had 10 AllOAC performances during the outdoor championship. Ten student-athletes – two indoors and eight outdoors – also qualified for the national championship meet.
NKU home to Elite Eight
Northern Kentucky University has been selected as the site for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division II men’s basketball Elite Eight. NKU will host the event inside The Bank of Kentucky Center in Highland Heights. The Bank of Kentucky Center is a 9,400-seat facility that opened in 2008. The NCAA Division II Elite Eight features the winners of the nation’s eight regions in men’s basketball. Next year’s event will be held in Springfield, Mass., followed by a two-year stay in Highland Heights, Ky. From 1995-2000, the NCAA Division II Elite Eight for men’s basketball was held in Louisville, Ky., inside the Commonwealth Convention Center. NKU advanced to the national championship games in both 1996 and ‘97 while the event was hosted in Louisville. NKU is a member of the Great Lakes Valley Conference and competes in the Midwest Region.
Northern Kentucky University golfer Danny Lewis added to his postseason honors with a selection to the PING AllAmerica second team, according to the Golf Coaches Association of America. Lewis, a junior from Morrow, Ohio, was one of three Great Lakes Valley Conference golfers selected to the All-America team, including Seth Fair of Indianapolis and Bryan Ratterman of Bellarmine. Lewis also was honored as a part of the PING AllMidwest Region Team. Lewis led NKU with a 72.97 scoring average in 29 rounds during the 2009-2010 season. Lewis took the medal at two separate events this season. He shot a season-low 67 to follow a first-round 68 to win the Great Lakes Regional Invitational Sept. 20 and Sept. 21, and he took the medal at the Great Lakes Valley Conference Championships by four strokes. His performance also helped NKU capture the team title at the GLVC Championships for the third time in the last five seasons. The award marks the first time an NKU golfer has been named an All-American since David Shearer and Mark Krahe were selected as honorable mention All-Americans in 2006. Lewis is ranked as the No. 3 player in the Midwest Region and the No. 22 player in all of NCAA Division II.

McDole ends baseball career with honors
By James Weber email@example.com
Evan McDole is spending his summer trying to squeeze as much baseball into his life before the next phase kicks in. McDole, a 2005 Bishop Brossart High School graduate, recently earned his diploma McDole from Northern Kentucky University, where he just finished an outstanding career on the diamond and a degree in accounting. The numbers of bank statements will soon replace batting averages and wages will replace walks when McDole starts work at the Grant Thornton accounting firm in Cincinnati Oct. 4. Until then, McDole is studying for his CPA exam while working at NKU’s summer baseball camps. Despite being one of the best hitters in NKU history, McDole did not get much in the way of professional baseball offers. NKU had two pitchers, Kevin Jordan and Jason Cisper, taken in the major league entry draft earlier this month. “I’m just studying and enjoying life,” McDole said. “I never really got the opportunity (to play pro). No one was talking to me all year, but I’ve got a good backup plan. I’m excited to start this phase in my life.” McDole hit .347 this year with six home runs, 65 runs batted in and 51 runs scored, helping NKU to its third straight trip to the NCAA Division II tournament with a 43-17 record. He ended his career with
NKU’s Evan McDole hits the ball in a 2009 game. the school’s career records in walks and doubles and tied for the career mark in RBI with 174. He was Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Year as a junior and helped the team to two conference titles. He won the ABCA Gold Glove award last year. “I enjoyed winning the GLVC title back to back,” he said. “Those seasons were really special Those were moments I’ll look back and enjoy, helping my school win.” This year, McDole was the male recipient of the 2009-10 Richard F. Scharf Paragon Award, which is
given annually to the top male and female studentathletes in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. The Paragon Award is based upon academic excellence, athletic ability and achievement, character and leadership. He became the third NKU male to win the award, the first in 10 years. “That was another great honor, because it was athletics and academics,” he said. “It was nice to know that all the effort I put into the classroom gets recognized.” On top of that, he was recently named the GLVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
NKU softball player Rose Broderick (Oak Hills) won the female league honor. McDole is a four-time academic all-GLVC selection and two-time Academic AllAmerican. McDole had a cumulative grade-point average of 3.816. On campus, McDole has participated in Kids Night Out and is a Halloween Hoopla Leader. He has also donated his time in the community by making visits to the Children’s Hospital and serving as a reader at Mary Queen of Heaven Elementary School. McDole is also a Friend of Jaclyn team leader and a Caring
Bridge participant. “If I were to put together an All-Decade team, he would probably be my first choice,” NKU head coach Todd Asalon said last year. “He is just good on and off the field. That is what you look for in a ballplayer.” McDole will look to enjoy this summer while saying goodbye to NKU. “Being around the game and my teammates every day,” he said. “Every day was a blast to go to practice or the game. We had a bunch of good guys on the team. Having to wake up early and go to work will be a little different.”
Brossart juniors all-state in softball By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
Bishop Brossart High School junior pitcher Alicia Miller and junior catcher Lindsay Griffith were named to the 2010 honorable mention all-state team by the Kentucky Fast Pitch Softball Coaches Association. Brossart head coach/athletic director Mel Webster said the all-state team is usually predominantly seniors. Miller finished the season 25-9, with a 0.81 ERA and a school record 10 shutouts. Griffith batted .500 while knocking home 47 runs and collecting 21 extra base hits. Griffith had a seasonhigh six RBI against St. Patrick and enters her senior year with 86 for her career. Miller struck out a season-high 13 twice this year against Boone County and Silver Grove. Bishop Brossart, the topranked team in Northern Kentucky this year, finished 28-9. “We are very proud of Alicia and Lindsay and look forward to them having a great senior season,” Webster said. “They are the first players to ever earn this honor for our program.

Campbell County senior Zak Koeninger (middle) signs to play football for Pikeville College May 26. With him are parents, Sheri and Mark.
By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
Zak Koeninger’s senior football season was cut short after just three games because of a knee injury. He will get a chance for more football as the Campbell County High School senior signed to play for Pikeville College May 26. The linebacker/offensive lineman will start out on the defensive line at Pikeville. Pikeville, an NAIA school, went 3-8 last season. “They were a little bit hesitant about recruiting me, but they were impressed with what they saw in my swimming and my rehab,” he said.
Koeninger was part of the Camel swimming team this past season. He plans to major in
exercise science. “It was tough (not playing),” he said. “I didn’t think I would have the

Rose Jr. named hitting coach By Adam Kiefaber firstname.lastname@example.org
The Florence Freedom announced Sunday, June 20, it hired Pete Rose Jr. as its new hitting coach. Previously, Rose Jr. was the manager for the Florence Freedom for a fourgame period in 2004. According to him, this is “technically” his first coaching job in professional baseball. Currently, Rose Jr. provides private hitting lessons for high school and other ballplayers in Fairfield, Ohio. He also has volunteered his time in the past to help the Freedom hitters. “We’re thrilled to bring in Petey to be our hitting coach,” Florence Free-
dom manager Toby Rumfield said. “He’s been by voluntarily before to work with our guys and they’ve been really receptive. He’s going to be a great addition.” Rumfield and Rose Jr. have been friends ever since they roomed together as members of the Chattanooga Lookouts in 1997. Ironically, the year Rumfield and Rose Jr. roomed together, was Rose Jr.’s best in professional baseball. That season, Rose Jr. had a .308 batting average, slugged 25 home runs and had 98 runs batted in for Chattanooga before getting a September call-up to the big leagues. That year, Rose Jr. played in 11
games for the Cincinnati Reds. For Rose Jr., whose dad, Pete Rose, is Major League Baseball’s all-time hits leader, it was obviously not his first experience on a big league baseball diamond. Rose Jr. played at Oak Hills High School in Cincinnati and was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 12th round of the 1988 amateur entry draft. He went on to play 21 seasons in professional baseball, finishing with 1,924 minor-league hits and two major-league hits. Currently, Rose Jr. lives in Cleves, Ohio, with his wife of 14 years, Shannon, and two children, Peter Edward Rose III, 5, and Isabel Marie Rose, 3.

Last week’s question
How do you plan to spend your summer? “Visit parents (87 years old) in Philadelphia, drive to Williamsburg to attend a three-day tax education seminar (I’m a CPA). My wife will fly in on Friday and we will explore Williamsburg and the Blue Ridge Parkway for a week. Fly to Orlando to attend five-day IRS seminar and fly to Tanzania for a wildlife photo safari for 3 weeks at the end of August. In between, lots of walking and ‘honey dos.’” FSD “I’ve been retired for a long time now (nearly 20 years), and have been away from the threeday/week part-time job I held for about six years. “Old fogeys like me don’t see much of a change in our activities when summer rolls around. So my routine will remain pretty much the same. “We really can’t afford much travel, but I’m OK with that. So I’ll keep doing what I already do: helping my wife with the household stuff she did for years (cooking, laundry, etc.), corresponding with friends and family, working out, helping our daughter with her two little ones, and enjoying leisure time in our yard or patio with our great neighbors.” Bill B. “Our daughter is getting married here in Cincinnati this Saturday. We are having a brunch Sunday for out-of-town family and friends. As soon as the brunch is over we’re heading up north to our Michigan cottage for a week of R&R (recovery and rehabilitation) – and hopefully cooler weather! “Our typical summer is spent back and forth between projects around the house here and time spent at the cottage. Very relaxing and well worth the long drive.” M.M. “Plan to spend it enjoying the kids, the great Cincinnati summer and all the things to do around here locally instead of a big family vacation. Looking forward to rediscovering all the great things this city has to offer, including time with your family.” C.J.G.
“We usually take our vacation in the spring before it get’s to hot, other than a trip to Coney Island on Price Hill Day and maybe a visit to River Downs to bet on the ponies we will just enjoy a dip in the backyard pool.” L.S.
If you had one day to do anything, where would you spend the day locally? Why?

Owen needs new leadership As customers of Owen Electric, we are also its owners. We are also owners of East Kentucky Power (EKPC), the cooperative that generates our electricity. We are one of 16 distribution co-ops in central and eastern Kentucky that jointly own EKPC. EKPC is mismanaged both by its top staff and its board, which is made up of representatives from the 16 distribution co-ops. These are the conclusions of a management audit that the Kentucky Public Service Commission required EKPC to have. To boil it down, EKPC has created a mess. One result is that our electric rates are higher than surrounding utilities, and that’s likely to get worse because EKPC has not been addressing the underlying problems. In fact, EKPC just asked for another rate increase. EKPC’s approach to “fixing” the problems is only making things worse-and putting the coop at ever increasing financial risk. Either continuously rising rates or the financial collapse of EKPC will jeopardize our region’s economic health, our jobs and our competitiveness with surrounding areas. The auditors pointed out that
EKPC hasn’t responded effectively to their recommendations or those of several previous reviews going back almost a decade. Because Tona Barkley of this, the audirecommendCommunity tors ed that “The disRecorder tribution cooperguest atives ... should columnist take the initiative now to change direction. ... Such a review must be ... from the member level to be effective.” That means us, people. About a year ago, I tried to attend Owen Electric board meetings to learn more about my co-op. I met a closed door. I even made a formal request for a change in the closed-meeting policy, but the board replied with a solid “no.” Yet I know there are other cooperatives that have open meetings – as any organization founded on democracy and member ownership should. Our co-ops are in dubious shape, yet we the members can’t respond
because we have almost no way of knowing what’s going on. The current Owen Electric board members have served anywhere from eight to 46 years. No one in memory has ever attempted to run against a board-nominated candidate. But the time has come for some new blood on the Owen Electric board. Dallas Ratliff and I are running for the board of Owen Electric as independent candidates, nominated by a petition signed by members. Dallas and I will ask the difficult questions and press for a Members’ Bill of Rights to allow members to observe what’s going on and put Owen Electric and EKPC on a better course that will save members money and create good, local jobs. Members can attend the Annual Meeting at Grant County High School Friday, June 25, and vote in this historic election any time between 4:30 and 7 p.m. A photo ID is required. Vote to bring openness and democracy back to Owen Electric. Tona Barkley is retired from KET, where she served as director of communications, and lives in Owen County with her husband, John Harrod.

“This summer is going to be a fun-filled, exciting one. “My first summer of being retired is giving me the chance to spend more time with my grandchildren, (picnic’s, golf, shopping & pedicure with my granddaughter, and checking out garage sales). “Also looking forward to a twoweek vacation with six couples on an Alaska trip (one week on rail/bus and the second leg a Princess cruise) then four relaxing days with family down at Woodsen Bend, in Somerset, Ky.” “I couldn’t ask for a better summer.” Kathy “As a teacher, I use the summer to rejuvenate. I reflect upon the year that has ended and try to come up with different ideas for the next year! “We’re headed to a new school and I’d like to use newer things. I’m thinking ways to renew my teaching style, too. I’m a bit excited and a little bit scared about the move. It will definitely be an exciting time. “I’m also taking a few days with my husband to fly to Vegas. That will be fun before all of the big changes!” M.E. “I plan to spend my summer actively campaigning for all local, state and national conservative Republicans for the November elections. We need to take our country back – we are heading down a path of bankruptcy and destruction as a democracy.” N.W.S. “Loafing.”
“Working! I work at a publishing company, and summer is our busy season. Vacation time won’t happen until at least September.” J.S.B. “I joined the UC Band during this summer. Our first concert is in Blue Ash on June 22 right at Cooper and Ronald Regan. It is both fun and wonderful!!” T.R.

Session ends with new budget The 2010 Special Session closed with the passage of a twoyear budget and an unemployment insurance bill. After much public pressure, the House agreed to a responsible budget without job-killing taxes and significantly decreased state debt. It is a fiscally conservative budget that reflects the commonsense values of Kentucky families who are struggling in this economy. In this vein, the General Assembly also put a plan in place to pay back the federal government the money we had borrowed for our depleted unemployment insurance fund. The fund will continue to be solvent and provide a safety net for those still searching for a job. It was a necessary step to avoid greater costs threatened by the federal government. As many of you are aware, the 2010 General Assembly Session closed without a budget because the House Majority Leadership would not agree to a budget unless it contained $1.2 billion in projects and $270 million in tax increases. We in the Senate offered a budget with reduced spending and no tax increases. The governor called us into special session and proposed a budget that closely mirrored the Senate budget. This budget which finally passed both houses cut most state government spending by 3.5 percent in 2010-11 and another 1

percent in 2011-12. This budget keeps 177 instructional school days and it requires the Governor to cut $300 million in state contracts, political appointees, and other costs. It does not provide raises for state employees and teachers but it does ensure that their health insurance plan is stabilized. Lastly, there is a process to replace our worst-shape schools buildings called “Category 5’s” and to begin the process of objectively assessing school building needs across the state. This is an idea that was promoted in legislation I sponsored during the 2010 Regular Session and I am happy to see it embraced in the budget. In the budget, I also inserted language that would help save jobs and attract new airlines to the Northern Kentucky-Greater Cincinnati Airport. The Economic Development Cabinet will be developing a strategy for this important travel hub that is key to business growth. I have also requested that two legislative committees begin the search for ways to restore CVG’s productivity. Also at my urging, the Cabinet for Economic Development will be exploring ways to attract “angel investors” –

people who can provide money for new businesses and ideas in exchange for a stake in the business. If our state wants to truly benefit from the 21st Century “great idea” economy, we need to boost entrepreneurship in Kentucky. The General Assembly also passed a two-year state road plan which included measures, at my suggestion, to alleviate traffic congestion near Northern Kentucky University and its surrounding neighborhoods. It has been a difficult process but I am confident this budget will help prepare Kentucky for a better day.

CATCH A STAR
Dan Schoepf, 52, of Cold Spring, has been the custodian at Cline Elementary School in Cold Spring for three years where the staff calls him “Super Dan.”
School custodian known for extra effort Answering to the names of “Mr. Dan” and even sometimes “Super Dan,” Dan Schoepf, the lead custodian at Cline Elementary School in Cold Spring, is known for his helpful nature. Schoepf, 52, of Cold Spring, has been the lead custodian at Cline for three years. He is known for volunteering to help teachers and staff with extra tasks around the school from setting up props for a school play to installing a new pencil sharpener in a classroom. “I always call him ‘Super Dan,’” said Brenda Elgin, the school’s secretary. Elgin said on a day after Schoepf first started work the staff noticed everything was a touch brighter. “Super Dan” had taken the initiative to clean every light bulb in the school, she said. “He never stops,” Elgin said. “If you ask him to do something, he’s got to do it right away.” Schoepf is always smiling and willing to do what-
ever people ask of him, Elgin said. “I feel honored to work with him,” she said. “We could use a lot more ‘Dans’ in the world.” Schoepf said although it’s still a job, it never feels like work to him. When he passes people in the hallways he has a standard response. “They always ask me how I’m doing and I always say ‘real good,’” Schoepf said. Schoepf said he knew he was in the right place within a couple hours of starting in his job at Cline and the staff made him feel welcome. “These people here are so awesome, they made me feel like I was at home,” he said. Melanie Schaefer, a teacher at the school, calls Schoepf “Mr. Dan.” “He is truly amazing,” Schaefer said. “The children and teachers love him. He is always smiling and has encouraging words to say to students and teachers.” Chris Mayhew/Staff

Mike Deinlein, 21, runs with the new Fort Thomas Running Club Tuesday, June 15.
A newly formed group is offering Fort Thomas and other local residents a way to get active and meet others in their community. When Fort Thomas residents Chris Deinlein and his fiancée Amber Salter noticed all the people running and walking through the city, they started talking about how it would be if everyone got organized and exercised together. This was the beginning of the Fort Thomas Running Club. “We started the club a few weeks ago as a way to
encourage people to get out and get in shape,” Deinlein said. For Fort Thomas resident Lindsey Collier, the group did just that. “I can’t usually get the motivation to get out and run, so I decided to join this group,” Collier said. “It’s easier to get into running when you’re doing it with other people.” Deinlein said the club is open to anyone who wants to join, regardless of age or experience. To fit the needs of a variety of participants, Deinlein has mapped out routes of different lengths through the city.
“People can tell me how far they want to run, and I can tell them where to go,” Deinlein said. “My hope is that we’ll encourage more people who have never tried running to come out and join us.” Deinlein said as the club grows and progresses, he plans to do group training for various races and marathons. The group meets at 6 p.m. every Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. every Saturday at the parking lot across from Highlands High School. For details, visit www. thefortrunningclub.blogspot .com or search for the Fort Thomas Running Club on www.facebook.com.
Leave those grass clippings for the earthworms Return those grass clippings back to the turf! Proper lawn care includes regular mowing of the lawn. And mowing the lawn produces grass clippings. So, what do you do with them? Well, don’t bag those clippings and send them to the landfills. Throw them back into the turf where they came from! And there are many great reasons why you should be returning those grass clippings back to the turf and not bagging them! • Grass clippings do not contribute to thatch. Thatch is a brown spongy layer of material made up of dead grass stems and roots. • Clippings are 75 percent water and break down quickly. • Clippings contain nitrogen (P and K) and other nutrients as well. • As much as 50 percent of the nitrogen applied to the lawn is removed when
Ron Wilson In the garden
grass clippings are collected. • Nutrients in the clippings are returned to the soil (can provide as much as 25 percent of your lawns total fertiliz-
er needs). • Clippings add organic matter back to the soil and encourage microorganisms, resulting in water conservation and less fertilizer needed. • Less fertilizer needed means cost savings for you, and reduction of pollution in rain water runoff from your yard. • Clippings left on the lawn means no bagging and hauling / no additions to landfills. Also reduces mowing time by as much as 40 percent. • Earthworms enjoy
grass clippings. A recent study at the University of Connecticut, where the clippings were returned to the lawn versus being removed, showed that the lawns with the clippings returned had: 45 percent less crabgrass, up to 60 percent less disease, up to 45 percent more earthworms, 60 percent more water reaching plant roots, 25 percent greater root mass, and 50 percent reduced need for nitrogen fertilizer. Now that is fairly convincing, wouldn’t you say? If you do return grass clippings back to the turf, make sure that you mow on a regular basis (sharp mower blade), and never removing more than a third of the grass blade each time you mow. If the grass gets too high, adjust the mower height to remove a third of the blade, and then mow again in three to four days, and again in three to four days
until the desired height is reached. Do not bring overgrown grass back to the normal mowing height in one mowing! And by all means, DO NOT throw grass clippings out into the street! It can create a driving hazard, as well as contributing to polluting the water as they wash down into the storm drains. Keep the clippings within your own yard – not on the street. Grass clippings can also be recycled as mulch in the garden, soil amendment, or added to the compost pile, assuming no weed killers have been used. Leave those clippings on the lawn.

Becoming the ‘Mentalist’ in our own drama For several years the “Mentalist” has been a popular TV show. The “Mentalist” is a man associated with a police investigation team seeking to solve various crimes. The police carry weapons, he does not. His “weapon” is his psychological insightfulness. What an advantage it could be for us to become the “Mentalist” of our own life story! Many of us develop dubious behaviors at times. We constantly come late for work, we drink and eat or spend too much, endlessly watch pornography, tell secrets we’ve promised to keep, flirt and begin affairs we know we don’t want to continue, etc. We choose enough perplexing behavior to make us wonder at times, “Why do I do the things I do?” To be our own “Mentalist,” one of the most helpful questions we
can ask ourselves about our irregular behavior is, “What am I getting out of this?” Such a question is helpful because we Father Lou never do anyGuntzelman thing that does Perspectives not reward us in some way. For example, we water our flowers not essentially for their sake but for ours. We want beautiful flowers to look at, decorate our homes, create curb appeal, express our artistry, etc. That’s not wrong. But there is a personal underlying reason for watering our flowers. Our deepest reason for doing something is not usually the obvious one. It emanates from within us, from our unconscious.
I am wary of anyone who thinks he or she knows the exact reason for their every action. True, for some behaviors we do know; but most are motivated by deeper personal reasons. It might be helpful to know them. Here is a list of an awareness some people actually gained about themselves. Remember, we’re unique, and the reason in one person’s unconscious life is not necessarily the same reason operative in another’s life. • A woman was significantly overweight though she frequently dieted. With the help of a competent counselor she discovered that unconsciously she wanted to be obese. She did not want to appear too physically attractive. For then she would have to deal with men, sexual issues and intimacy – all of which she deeply feared for reasons she soon realized. • A man occasionally won-
dered about his promiscuous behavior and engaging in casual sex with so many women. With psychological help he came to realize he had never really loved anyone or been humanly close. His promiscuity fooled him (and others) into thinking he was a great lover when he really didn’t know what love is. • A woman was rigidly religious. At first she had inklings that it meant she was holy or saintly. As she later came to discover, she had unconsciously chosen rigidity because she was afraid of dealing with the uncertainties of life, her ambiguous feelings, and the fear of making wrong decisions if left to herself. She was afraid of her imperfect human nature. So she had turned over dealing with her own life to precise religious demands rather than genuinely think, reflect and
choose on her own. That meant she could never be blamed, for she did as she was told. She saw herself as perfect. Her life was not challenging since someone else had written her script. Why do we act the way we do? It suits us in some way. Some of our reasons are healthy, wholesome and indicate a growing person. And some indicate we are an unhealthy or frightened person trying to protect ourselves from the demands of life. Our actions are a language that – when interpreted correctly – tell us if we are growing into the person God made us to be, or not. To live life well requires intense self-deception or deep courage.

Out-of-network lab work could cost you It’s something we always have to be careful about when seeking out a doctor: We must make sure they’re in our health insurance network. But even if you do that, there’s more to check to avoid getting hit with a large bill. That’s what a Bridgetown woman learned after her daughter broke out in hives. Rebecca Surendorff’s 9month-old daughter, Nora, had tasted some ice cream when it became apparent she was allergic. Her pediatrician suggest-

ed contacting an allergist, so Surend o r f f called her health insurance company to find out who was in-net-
work. “They referred me to a website after telling me all office visits and all office testing is covered,” Surendorff said. She went to the doctor
who treated Nora and ran some tests. “Three months after we had in-office testing, a skin prick test and a blood test, I got a bill for over $600,” Surendorff said. The bill indicated the charges were for tests so she immediately called her health insurance company. “I was on the phone with them for many hours,” said Surendorff. “They also told me maybe I shouldn’t have had the blood drawn. I thought am I qualified to make this decision?” The problem was the
doctor’s office had sent the blood for testing to a lab that wasn’t in her health insurance network. As a result, she was hit with that large lab bill. She complained to the doctor’s office but said she got nowhere. “They were both blaming each other. The insurance company said I should have been more aware and the doctor’s office should have assisted me more,” said Surendorff. “The doctor’s office said basically that’s how their billing is – that the insur-
ance company knows this,” she said. Surendorff said the next time she called her insurance company she told them it would be all right to talk with me about this issue because she had already notified me of this problem. Two hours later, she said, she received a call from her insurance company. Surendorff said she was told, “As a one-time courtesy they will be paying the bill. In the future, I now know that I must make sure that all of our lab testing is done
with this specific company.” A spokesman for the insurance company said consumers should talk with their doctor about any lab work to be performed. Find out where the lab work is being sent and check it out. Sometimes, he said, you can save a significant amount of money if you direct the lab work to be sent to a different provider – one that is in your particular health insurance network.

Scream for easy berry ice cream cream. When I went for my evening run, ripe mulberries were scattered here and there on my old country road. I’m not complaining, though, since I consider anything that comes from God’s good Earth a gift. I just need to clone myself to get everything done!
I can hardly keep up with Mother Nature this week. Everything is ripening a couple of w e e k s early. First, our sour pie cherry tree had so many cherries Rita on it that Heikenfeld t h e branches Rita’s kitchen w e r e bending. I did get out to pick the ripe ones with granddaughter, Eva, who at almost 21⁄2 is able to pick by herself. I made a nice batch of cherry jam with what we picked. We took a walk through the garden and spied very ripe black raspberries which must have ripened overnight. So we picked a batch of

This is a pork dish that is really delicious. If you’ve never tried fennel with pork, you’ll be surprised at the flavor. Fennel has a slight licorice taste with savory overtones. My fennel, both the Florence (that’s the kind with the big white bulb) and my bronze (which has a long tap root similar to a carrot)
are growing well enough to harvest some leaves from them. Like everything else in the garden, the fennel already needs pruning.

The sweet experts at Graeter’s have been inspired by the new Bizarre and Beautiful Gallery at the Aquarium and are whipping up a special sundae in its honor. The Newport Aquarium Summer Sundae is a tasty treat featuring Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream, hot fudge, nuts, whipped cream and a cherry.

Species featured include: a giant Pacific octopus, Japanese spider crabs, seahorses and more.
Sensory Friendly Films
AMC Entertainment (AMC) and the Autism Society have teamed up to bring families affected by autism and other disabilities a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment on a monthly basis. Sensory Friendly Films will continue this month with a showing of “Toy Story 3” at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 26, at AMC Newport on the Levee 20, One Levee Way Ste 4100, in Newport. In order to provide a more accepting and comfortable setting for children with autism or other special needs, AMC movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down. Also, families will be able to bring in their own glutenfree, casein-free snacks, and no previews or advertisements will be shown before the movie. Additionally, audience members are welcome to get up and dance, walk, shout or sing - in other words, AMC’s “Silence is Golden” policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased on the day of the event.

Tie for title of unofficial ‘Face of Cincinnati’ The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Zoo, Cincinnati Art Museum, Florence Freedom, Cincinnati Parks, Pete Rose and Mayor Mark Mallory are the big winners in the eighth annual Northern Kentucky University Cincinnati Entertainment Survey. The survey measures the popularity, satisfaction and value of local entertainment attractions. It also measures local attitudes about quality of life and asks what is the region’s best-kept entertainment secret and who is the unofficial face of Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati Zoo finished in a statistical tie for the most popular local attractions. Fifty-six percent of the survey’s 511 respondents reported attending a Reds game in the last year, while 55 percent reported visiting the zoo during that time. Kings Island (41 percent) finished third in popularity, followed by the Newport Aquarium (36 percent), Cincinnati Museum Center (33 percent), Cincinnati Bengals (31 percent), Riverbend Music Center (27 percent), Aronoff Center (26 percent), Coney Island (21 percent) and the Cincinnati Art Museum (21 percent). Of all venues included in the study, only Kings Island and the Newport Aquarium saw an increase in popularity over 2009 results. “The industry is going to see a shift from high-cost forms of entertainment to low-cost forms,” the study concluded. “Industries that rely on sales of costly tickets for
one-night entertainments, like sporting events, live music and theater, may not benefit from the struggling economy.” In terms of customer satisfaction, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is the 2010 winner. Seventy percent of respondents rated their satisfaction with Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as a nine or 10 on a 10point scale where 10 is “extremely satisfied.” The Cincinnati Art Museum (63 percent) ranked second in satisfaction after topping the list last year. The symphony and art museum were followed by the Cincinnati Opera (61 percent), Cincinnati Museum Center (59 percent), Playhouse in the Park (59 percent), Cincinnati Zoo (56 percent), Aronoff Center (50 percent), National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (48 percent), Kentucky Speedway (45 percent) and Newport Aquarium (45 percent). In challenging economic times, perceived value becomes that much more important. And when it comes to value, the Cincinnati Art Museum and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra tied for the top spot this year. Seventy-one percent of respondents rated the Cincinnati Art Museum as a nine or 10 on a 10point scale where 10 is “extremely good value.” Sixty-six percent of respondents gave the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra such a rating – doubling the percentage of such ratings for the CSO over last year, making the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra the biggest mover in terms of both satisfaction and per-
The survey measures the popularity, satisfaction and value of local entertainment attractions. ceived value this year. Following the art museum and symphony are the Florence Freedom (63 percent), National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (58 percent), Cincinnati Opera (53 percent), Playhouse in the Park (48 percent), Cincinnati Museum Center (47 percent), Cincinnati Zoo (43 percent), Kentucky Speedway (36 percent) and Coney Island (36 percent). “I think if you look at the data in terms of satisfaction and perceived value, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has to be pretty pleased by the results of the NKU Cincinnati Entertainment Survey,” said Dr. Aron Levin, associate professor of marketing and director of the NKU Marketing Research Partnership Program. “That said, all of these organizations can benefit from this information. Our study offers an unbiased outside look at the perceptions that are out there, and as they say perception is reality. We hope to work with these groups – no matter how they fared this year – to give them useful, actionable information that can help them plan for continued growth and expansion.” The Florence Freedom organization won the award for Best Family Friendly local attraction, which is calculated by combining, among other factors, customer satisfaction
and perceived value. The survey also asked participants what is the city’s best kept secret. The leading vote-getter is Cincinnati’s parks. “I think sometimes people overlook the quality of our local parks,” Levin said. “But when you think about Eden Park, Ault Park, Burnet Woods, Devou Park and the other wonderful local parks we have, it should come as no surprise that our area’s parks would be the best kept secret in town.” The survey asked who is the unofficial face of Cincinnati. Responses were all over the board – from television personalities such as Jerry Springer and Nick Clooney to business leaders like Bob Castellini and Bill Butler; from Nick Lachey to former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin. But in the end, there was a statistical tie between all-time Major League Baseball hits leader Pete Rose (43 votes) and Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory (41 votes). They were followed by Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco (32 votes). Finally, the survey measured perceived quality of life around the region and found that 69 percent of respondents from Warren County believe that Cincinnati is a good or great place to live; followed by 67 percent of respondents from Kenton, Clermont and Dearborn counties; 62 percent from Hamilton County; 58 percent from Boone County; 53 percent from Campbell County; and 51 percent from Butler County.

Census follow-up ahead of schedule
The current door-to-door phase of the 2010 Census is about 94 percent complete, but there are several reasons why a census worker may visit your home in coming weeks. Robert Groves, director of the U.S. Census Bureau, announced in mid-June that about 44 million census forms had been completed and checked in, leaving about 3 million forms to be collected and processed. “We are somewhat ahead of schedule and certainly under budget,” Groves said. Since May 1, about 550,000 census employees have been going door-todoor nationwide to obtain completed census questionnaires from more than 47 million households that failed to return a form by April 16. “In some parts of Kentucky, the workload was completed weeks ahead of the July 10 deadline for the Nonresponse Followup phase,” said William W. Hatcher, Charlotte regional director for the Census Bureau. Nevertheless, he added, over the next several weeks census workers will continue to contact some households in Kentucky as part of one of several quality-control operations. They include: • Coverage Followup: Until mid-August, households will be called to clarify answers provided on the census questionnaire (for example, the number of
people listed at an address doesn’t match the number of names provided). • Vacant Delete Check: In July census workers will double check vacant households and those we deleted as nonexistent on April 1, the reference date for the 2010 census. They also will visit housing units from which they received blank or incomplete forms. • Field Verification: During August, census workers will visit households for which a form has been received but whose address does not match an address in our master file. This operation also seeks to resolve suspected duplicate addresses within the same block. “These operations are supplemented by other quality-assurance processes to maximize accuracy,” Hatcher said. “In some cases, that means a home may be visited more than once.” Some households that mailed in a form have received a visit from a census worker. Reasons include incomplete or conflicting answers or forms received after deadline. “If you are one of the small percent of Kentucky homes that are visited, please take a few minutes to speak with the census taker,” Hatcher said. “Our mission is to count everyone, once and in the right place. We check and double check to make sure we get it right.” Nationwide, 72 percent of U.S. households mailed
back the form on time. The mail participation rate for Kentucky was 75 percent. The 2010 census is the official count of everyone living in the U.S. and is required by the Constitution.

Hospice Care of St. Elizabeth offers STARS Camp for Kids STARS will hold its annual Summer Day Camp Wednesday, July 7, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Town & Country Sports Complex, 1018 Town Drive in Wilder. The goal of the camp is to provide a oneday, structured program that integrates fun and play with grief work activities. The children have an opportunity to meet others who have experienced a death and learn safe and healthy ways to express their grief. Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy, but facing this confusing process as a child can be even more difficult. The STARS program helps kids better understand their loss and find strength through their grief journey. The STARS Summer Day Camp is limited to 30 ele-
ernments each year. Stateby-state results must be reported to the president by Dec. 31. Census takers will have an official I.D. badge and many will also carry a black bag marked with the words “U.S. Census Bureau.” Census takers will never ask to come into your home, or ask for bank, credit card, or Social Security numbers.
A candlelight vigil will take place at 8 p.m. Aug. 20 in honor of all the prisoners of war and missing in action that have never made it home. It will take place at the Florence Government Cen-
