Campbell County unveils 911 fee plan By Chris Mayhew

with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, McCormick said. The move will be away from a one-room office with a storage room and small meeting room, he said. The clerk’s office offers more storage space with an office several times larger, McCormick said. “And it’s really publicly advantageous,” he said. “The old clerk’s office has a nice reception area.”

ALEXANDRIA — Collection of the county 911 service fee will change to an annual property tax fee under a proposal announced at the July 10 Campbell County Fiscal Court meeting. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said the ordinance will create an annual $45 property tax fee and eliminate the existing per landline phone fee. The proposal is subject to change by fiscal court prior to any passage, Horine said. "The problem is landlines are going away, they're no longer a stable and reliable source of revenue to fund the 911 services," he said. Horine said the proposed ordinance required no action at this time and will be brought to fiscal court for a vote at a later time. The proposed ordinance includes a one-time discount for rental property owners to pay 50 percent for each tenant for the first year, he said. The plan is for the fee to be on property tax bills sent out in November if approved, Horine said. There are about 41,000 residential housing units and 2,000 commercial units in the county that will be subject to the $45 annual fee in Campbell County, he said. Individual dorms at Northern Kentucky University and senior dormitory housing units will not have to pay the fee under the proposal, Horine said. Senior living apartments with full kitchens will be subject to paying the fee, Horine said. Kevin Gordon, a resident of Wilder, said he thought the county should consider charging NKU a per dorm fee because they pay a per landline fee now. Horine said he will look into the issue of NKU's dorms and give it consideration. Judge-executive Steve Pendery said giving the landlord discount is a way to be fair because some tenants are on oneyear leases. Landlords will not initially be able to charge the fee to all tenants, he said.

ALEXANDRIA — Nine-year-

old Casen Shrock, two years into a recovery from a traumatic brain injury, smiles and laughs easily, gives high-fives and walks with assistance. Shrock, of Claryville, uses an iPad with software to mimic a human voice. He has multiple lessons each week with a tutor as well as physical, occupational and voice therapy sessions. His parents, Garrett and Kristen say Casen is a medical miracle. Shrock was riding his bicycle in his driveway April 3, 2011, when a tree fell onto him. He spent the next 100 days at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Garrett said he thinks doctors, probably not wanting to give false hope, often reserve any comments about the future. “I honestly feel that he truly is a case study to them because he should not be here,” Garrett said. “He passed away three times on the way there, and his inner cranial pressure was lethal.” There is hope, he said. Casen works hard at physical therapy and at Reiley Elementary School, where he was back this year attending classes three days a week, Garrett said. Garrett said he wanted to let people know how Casen is doing because the family is so thankful for their support. “We’re still waiting for the

Physical therapy and summer home-schooling to catch up make the family’s routine “very Groundhog Day,” he said. “And is tomorrow going to be the day that he says a word?” Garrett said. “We don’t know. We’re living a life of the un-

known.” Now, there’s time to think about fundraising for the uncertain future and for ongoing expenses including private tutoring, he said. Kristen said her mother, Linda Wiedemann, has been spearheading efforts to start annual fundraisers. See CASEN, Page A2

Conservation district moving into courthouse By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County’s historic Alexandria courthouse will be the new home of the Campbell County Conservation District. Fiscal court unanimously passed the resolution agreeing to lease courthouse space to the conservation district at the Wednesday, July 10, meeting in Alexandria. Fiscal court has agreed to lease space to the conservation

district in the former first floor county clerks office in the courthouse beginning this fall. The courthouse was built in 1840 and contains fiscal court chambers on the first floor and the offices of the county’s historical society are on the second floor. The agreement will allow the conservation district to increase office and storage space. Campbell County has given the current nonprofit tenant 90 days to move out from space on the east side of the courthouse, but is also of-

fering to relocate and lease space on west side of the building. The courthouse is across the street from the existing conservation district offices. “We’ve been looking for a different office space for some time,” said Ron McCormick of California, chairman of the conservation district. “It’s kind of cramped there.” The district has to maintain lots of records, including water quality files and paperwork filed because of their work

"In a perfect world we would have an adequate database,” Pendery said. “We would be able to charge individuals and leave landlords out of this.” There is no database,

and the county can't follow tenants in a reliable way when they move, he said. Pendery said there is time to work out and discuss different details in the proposal. "This is just a first reading, and there is time to ponder this matter before the next meeting," he said.

GRANTS LICK — Jeff Turner of Grants Lick has a true “cutting-edge” agribusiness. Turner carves up 20foot logs with a mobile saw he purchased about a year ago. People can either bring logs to him, or he rolls his operation to them for larger jobs. He also makes and sells custom wood furniture. It’s an extension of his lifelong passion for woodcarving and wood-working, Turner said. “Even sawing the boards, when I take a knotty log and turn it into a nice piece of wood – to me it’s beautiful,” he said. Turner will demonstrate his mobile saw mill and show his furniture at his wife’s shop, Just What I Want Antiques, Collectibles and Gifts in Grants Lick, during the Campbell County Backroads Farm

trees or sell logs from trees. “Any type of lumber they need, if they’ve got the dimensions and the logs, then I’ll saw out the lumber that they need,” he said. Turner said he also enjoys taking logs he finds on his property and crafting furniture including tables and chairs. His wife, Mary Ellen, said she encouraged him to take working with wood more seriously after he retired. He’s made musical instruments by hand including hammer dulcimers, boxes and toys out of wood, she said.

Turner said his furniture features table tops showing the natural look of the wood both in colors and by preserving the curvature. “It’s the live edge of the tree without squaring it up,” he said. Turner said he repurposes old materials including sets of old iron table legs when making his new wood furniture. “It’s all hand done, each piece is custom made and unique in its look and structure,” he said.

Wiedemann said she is seeking partners outside of the family to help and hopes to organize a golf outing by late spring 2014, a 5K walk and motorcycle charity ride. Kristen said long-term the family wants to “pay it forward” and help others with annual events in Casen’s name. Kristen said she is especially thankful for the way people always include Casen. Road signs show support, and he’s been part of Campbell County High School football games. Casen has also been invited to a second Florence Freedom baseball game benefit in his honor Aug. 13. Kristen said she refuses to accept less than full recovery for Casen. “He deserves way more than what is going on in his life right now. I mean he is perfect now, but he was perfect then too,” Kristen said. Video: Watch Casen Shrock use his iPad to communicate and hear from his family at NKY.com.

they have until Oct. 1 to leave the space, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The county has offered the west side of the first floor, now vacant, to NAMI, Horine said. NAMI is considering the offer, he said. The $475 a month rate the county will charge the conservation district is more than NAMI is being

charged, Horine said. Making money isn’t the point, but the money will just cover the county’s costs for utility and insurance, he said. Horine said the terms of the lease with NAMI allowed the county to give them 90-days notice. “It’s a county agency that is interested in the space, and that takes precedent,” Horine said.

STINE HONORS ‘110 PERCENT’ STUDENTS WITH AWARDS

By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

COLD SPRING — Sen. Katie Stine, R-Southgate, honors hard work above natural talent, and each year she runs to and from school graduations handing out awards recognizing students with good work ethics. “This goes to kids who may or may not get straight As, but who live up to their fullest potential,” Stine said. Stine offers to hand out what she calls the Commonwealth Award to students at any school in Campbell or Pendleton counties annually – the counties in her senate district. She created the award after being elected in 1995. Students receiving the award don’t always receive perfect grades, she said. “The award says it’s the potential that lies within each person,” Stine said. Teachers and administrators at schools pick the recipients of the award based on specific parameters, she said. “And those are for students who give 110 percent consistently, and they may also have overcome some barrier or they may face challenges that they overcome,” Stine said. Stine said she attends all the fifth grade, middle school and high school graduations to hand out awards to students. Usually all the graduations happen within a two-week period, and sometimes there are as many as three graduations on the same evening, she said.

Stine walked into the May 23 Crossroads Elementary School graduation ceremony in between attending graduation ceremonies in Fort Thomas and Pendleton County. “They’re kind of used to seeing me run in and do the event, and run back out,” she said of the award presentation ceremony. The award often serves as a predictor of future success, she said. Stine said she meets former award winners, including some who are teachers or doing well in college or their profession, Stine said. “I’ve been doing it long enough now that I’ll meet people who are either in college or out of college,” she said. “Invariably, they are kids who are doing extraordinary things.” Not everyone is given the same level of IQ or talents, she said. Some students are great in art and others are good in math, Stine said. Everyone has the capacity to receive the award, but not everyone unlocks their full potential, she said. “I think this award recognizes kids early on who are hard workers,” Stine said. “Hard work is the key to success. Sometimes people will call it ‘The 110 percent award,’” Stine said there can never be enough positive reinforcement for children. “We should commend kids for doing the right thing,” she said.

Trap team takes aim at titles By James Weber

jweber@nky.com

Trap shooting requires near perfection to win, but instead of feeling pressure, local students feel nothing but fun when they’re competing. Northern Kentucky’s scholastic trap shooting team has had another strong summer as they are taking aim in several tournaments. In trap shooting, a circular clay target, or “bird,” is thrown out in front of the shooter from random directions. Students have to shoot with it a rifle from 16 yards away. “We have had an outstanding year so far in the first three competitions,” said Dennis Menning, head coach of the team. The team practices at the Bob White Club in Claryville near Campbell County High School. Members travel from all over Northern Kentucky to participate.

The next competition is the nationals, coming up July 19-20 in Sparta, Ill. at the renowned World Shooting Center, which has 120 trap fields spread out over three miles. More than 2,000 kids will be in the meet. “Vendors from all across the country will be there to display the latest in shooting equipment,” Menning said. “It promises to bring out the best in all the shooters competing there. The kids will be able to meet other kids from across the nation and make lasting friendships. It is the granddaddy of all shoots.” In a standard competition, each shooter has 200 targets, with a five-person team aiming for a perfect score of 1,000. “It takes a lot of dedication and focus and keeping your composure when you miss a bird,” said Tanner Hamilton of Campbell County. “You tell yourself you’ll hit the next one. You just have to remember the fundamentals of shooting and

get your rhythm going…I just love everything about it. You have the sense of accomplishment when you win something.” At the regional meet in April, three local quintets

brought home trophies. The varsity team of Kyle Sears, Alex Wolfert, A.J. Hickey, Grant Stewart and Thomas Schnitzler won its division with a 910 out of 1,000. The intermediate division team took second place with a 917. They are Jacob Bechtold, Tyler Allphin, Tanner Hamilton, Dakota Brashear and Mitch Knasel. The junior varsity team finished third with 913, paced by Brennan Kamer, Blake Hensley, Kolt Hickey, Bryce Herbst and Trey Downton. Tanner Hamilton took second place in intermediate with 196 out of 200. Dakota Brashear was third place in intermediate with 193. Tyler Allphin was second place in the rookie division with a 173. Several locals then qualified for the Kentucky state shoot in Berea. The college division team See TRAP, Page A6

HEIGHTS

Though field dimensions haven’t changed and the game still involves nine players, the jump to Division I baseball was a difficult one for Northern Kentucky University. After a 36-22 record in 2012, the Norse were a frustrating 8-47 in their first year in the Atlantic Sun. To remedy that, coach Todd Asalon Asalon has broadened his horizons in recruiting. Because they were not Division I in the past, NKU often landed transfers who didn’t have to sit out. Now, like all DI institutions, a transfer must sit a year. Because of the level of play and new restrictions, the Norse coaching staff has done some recent Lonkard globe-trotting. “We signed eight Canadians this year, we’re trying to go a little international to change things up,” Asalon said. “We’re also going out to the west coast with a couple kids out of the Colorado area. We went with some junior college kids that are a little bit bigger, stronger and faster.” As a result, NKU will be on the young side next year with their only seniors being Brett Cisper from Moeller and Zac Asman from Elder. Those two are the veterans of the local crew that Asalon would still like to attract. What he has to offer is a favorable location where friends and family can watch college games without considerable travel expense. “If we can get the local kid, we’d love to have them,” Asalon said. “You can get a chance to come in here and play right away and the travel is good. You get to go to Florida quite a few times and we go to California twice.” Joining Cisper and Asman on the list of NKU locals is infielder Caleb Lonkard of Ryle, pitcher Bela Perler of Anderson, Alex Bolia and Nick Beard of Elder, pitcher Drew Campbell of La Salle, Madeira catcher Cody Kuzniczci and Moeller outfielder Ryan LeFevers. Asalon likes tournament-tested Greater Catholic League players and also has another player with considerable postseason experience in Kuzniczci. “He had a great year for us,” Asalon said. “He led us in doubles. We asked him to do a lot. He caught a lot and we batted him in the cleanup spot. We’re expecting Cody to come in and have a really good year for us.” Many of the locals took their lumps in the southern-based Atlantic Sun playing on NKU’s new artificial turf infield. “With that said, we have 17 new kids,” Asalon said. “We’re going to have great competition and we’ll let them fight it out in the fall. The best man wins and gets to play in spring.” Battling the likes of Ohio State, Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Xavier and Miami for recruits, NKU offers a good conference and possibly a quicker See NKU, Page A6

The intermediate team was third with 803: Tyler Allphin, Corey Schnitzler, Rebekah Schnitzler, Justin Johnting and Logan Meyer. The club competed in the Ohio state meet in June, taking first place in their divisions in the nonresident category. The varsity team

scored 922 behind Trey Downton, Robert Schnitzler, Brennan Kamer, Kolt Hickey and Grant Stewart. The JV team was first with 908, led by Kyle Sears, Andrew Temke, Harrison Marsh, Alec Wolfert and Nicholas Staggs. The intermediate scored 876 to win with Allphin, Brashear, Hamilton, Justin Johnting and Rebekah Schnitzler. In this meet, Hamilton scored a near-perfect 199 out of 200. Downton had 198 and Brashear 195. Rebekah Schnitzler had 95 out of 100 in her first round.

“They had two teams go to the regionals this year. They’re in Florida and the Atlanta area. There’s better weather, the facilities are nicer and they take it serious.” To step up to the challenge, Asalon has a nonconference schedule that

includes some early warm-weather trips to Troy (Alabama) and the University of San Diego and Loyola Marymount in California. “We’ve ramped it up again,” Asalon said. “We’re going to play the best people possible.”

EDITORIALS | LETTERS | COLUMNS | CH@TROOM

Many folks believe that state legislators only work during the months we are called into session in January, but the reality is we work all year long. In fact, our House and Senate Committees join together when we are not in session and conduct meetings in Frankfort and travel to various locations across the state to hear reports from organizations and businesses that fall under our committees’ jurisdiction. In June, several interim committees met in Northern Kentucky. Since I serve as chair of the House Licensing and Occupations Committee, I feel it is imperative that I familiarize myself with their policies, plans, and facilities to better understand how the laws we pass affect their scope of operation and activities. The horse racing industry is one of Ken-

tucky’s signature industries and one that my committee regulates. A January 2013 statewide survey of the industry conDennis Keene COMMUNITY PRESS ducted by the University of GUEST COLUMNIST Kentucky’s College of Agriculture estimated the value of 242,000 horses and equine related assets at more than $20 billion. There are many institutions involved in this multi-billion dollar enterprise that include horses, jockeys, racetracks, wagering and horse parks. Recently, I attended the Kentucky Thoroughbred Development Fund Advisory Committee (KTDF) meeting. KTDF operates within the Ken-

CommunityPress.com

tucky Racing Commission and oversees the allotment of funds received through an excise tax imposed on all tracks conducting pari-mutuel wagering at Ellis Park in Henderson and Kentucky Downs in Franklin. This type of wagering is also known as instant racing, a form of electronic gaming that has a video lottery terminal feel. Wagers are based on previously run races, or “historical races.” I learned that between Sept. 1, 2011 and April 30, 2013, more than $327 million was wagered through instant racing, and most of that goes toward improving the equine industry and conducting equine drug research. But a portion of that is allocated to Kentucky’s Higher Education Fund to support and the commonwealth’s general fund.

Dropout age change a good move

In 1934 it may have been practical for 16-year-olds to drop out of high school with only a freshman education and get a job that paid enough for someone to live off of. Today sending a teenager into the job market with only a freshman education is practically a death sentence. There are so few jobs available today and so many workers looking for jobs, that employers will choose the besteducated available. The $10,000 grant money used to entice school boards to make the change in dropout age to 18 will be well worth it as kids are better prepared for life after high school. Research shows that high school graduates are less likely to become teen parents and are more likely to raise healthier, better educated children. This

Tractor show a great success

Licking Valley Antique Machinery Association LLC is proud to announce that our recent show was our best yet. We had a large amount of tractors, stationary engines and machinery from various counties. We had a large number of families and individuals come out to look at the equipment and enjoy a beautiful weekend with us. On Saturday afternoon even the youngsters got involved in the pedal-tractor pull. All who participated came away as winners with ribbons and prizes. Our DJ (Allmark Sales, owned by David Fultz from Brooksville) did an excellent job of keeping everyone aware of the daily events along with providing music all day long. We would like to express our utmost appreciation to the Knights Of Columbus who provided us with a terrific venue. Friday evening we had a great fish fry and Saturday a hearty breakfast and hot food and cold drinks all day long. We thank the many businesses that placed ads in our show booklet and those who donated items for our silent auction along with promotional items passed out at our registration tent. With the support of these businesses we are able to continually fund our scholarship program. So far, the programs are set up in Campbell and Pendleton counties. Funding these scholarships to young students pursuing a higher education in the field of agriculture and agriculture related business is the main goal of our shows. We are in the third year of funding and hope to continue for a long time. We would like to thank everyone for helping with the show and those who came out with tractors, engines and equipment to participate in the show. Next year’s show will be at the same location, June 6 and 7.

I chaired the Licensing and Occupations Committee meeting this month at the Kentucky Horse Park. It’s a wonderful facility that has come into national prominence since hosting the World Equestrian Games in 2011. John Nicholson, executive director of the Horse Park, said that they are averaging about $180 million in economic impact every year and $17 million a year is returned to General Assembly. Mr. Nicholson talked about how important the funds are they received from the General Assembly to promote the WEG. He also said an RFP was in the process of beginning which would – through a public-private partnership – build a hotel on the Horse Park property. The good news is our racing industry seems to be doing

Friends spend summer together before heading to college By Amanda Joering ajoering@nky.com

FORT THOMAS — Since middle school, recent Highlands High School graduates Mayson Hurtt, Trevor Kraft and Joe Paolucci have been best friends. “We all had a class together in seventh grade, and we’ve been friends ever since,” Hurtt said. From hanging out at each other’s houses to going fishing together, the three have made a lot of good memories over

the years, Paolucci said. One of Paolucci’s favorite memories is one Halloween when they dressed up as cheerleaders and ballerinas for school. During the summers, Kraft said they spend a lot of time swimming at the Fort Thomas Swim Club, where Hurtt works. Paolucci and Kraft, who live across the street from each other, have also run a landscaping business together for the past several years, working on yards throughout the com-

munity. Even though the three are preparing to head to different colleges this fall, they said they are confident their friendship will remain the same. Hurtt will be attending Wright State University in Dayton, Paolucci will be attending Thomas More College and Kraft will be attending the University of Louisville. “We won’t be that far away from each other, so I’m sure we’ll still see each other a lot,” Kraft said.

Blue ribbon muffins help usher in blueberry season

Blue ribbon blueberry muffins

Blueberry muffins are a popular fair entry. Judging at the local and state level has given me good criteria for the perfect blueberry muffin. I’m sharing my tips for a blue ribbon-winning muffin on my blog. Most importantly, though, don’t over mix. The batter should be lumpy. And always toss fruit or nuts with flour mixture to keep them from sinking. If you don’t have butter flavoring, which is in with extracts at the store, just up the vanilla to 2 teaspoons. This is adapted from a blue ribbon recipe winner who asked to remain anonymous.

patties and sauté over medium high heat until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Makes four big or six medium cakes.

Can you help?

7Up Cake for reader Tom W., who lost his recipe from the Enquirer Sundayfood section way back about 10-15 years ago. “Any offer is appreciated,” he said.

Rita adapted her blueberry muffin recipe from blue ribbon award winner.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin cups or line with baking cups. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Blend in extracts, baking powder and salt. Very gently, and by hand, fold in flour and blueberry mixture. Stir in milk. Spoon about 2⁄3 cup batter into muffin cups (enough to leave room for rising). Bake 22-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Don’t over bake. Yield: 18 or so regular muffins.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen Sprinkle on before baking: Plain sugar topping or 2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg. How to make storebought blueberry muffin mix taste like homemade: Add some fresh or frozen blueberries, unthawed (a scant cup) and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

When I checked my mail and calls this week, most of them centered on Cyndi Mitchell’s porcupine meatballs. I had no idea this recipe was such a beloved one. It was actually a new one to me. Julia M., who is “84-plus,” said her mom made Rita these for Heikenfeld her and RITA’S KITCHEN her five siblings many times. “Her recipe was a little different,” Julia said. Hers has ground beef, minced onion, baking powder, milk and uncooked regular rice along with salt and pepper. She covers hers with tomato soup and bakes them in the oven. Ann Falci and her girls Emma and Marianne were delighted to see the recipe. “An often requested meal. We serve it on top of rice with extra cans of soup as ‘gravy’ and fresh parsley on top.” I love when recipes evoke such a response and wonderful memories – that’s what cooking is all about. And blueberry season is here. We’ll be picking at Rouster’s in Milford. Check out my blog for Rouster’s blueberry cobbler with a cookie crust.

Safely preserving the summer bounty Fresh fruits and vegetables are arriving in home gardens and local farmers markets. Many people are busy canning and freezing to preserve this bounty. To safely preserve produce, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has provided time-proven canning and freezing procedures. Blanch vegetables before freezing them. Blanching is the process of heating or scalding vegetables in boiling water or steam for a short time. This slows or stops enzymatic action that reduces flavor, color and texture. It also removes dirt and organisms from vegetable surfaces; helps retard vitamin loss; and wilts or softens vegetables, making them easi-

CANNING TIPS

er to pack in freezer containers. Use a wire blanching basket and covDiane ered Mason saucepan EXTENSION or a wire NOTES basket into a large kettle with a fitted lid. Use 1 gallon of vigorously boiling water per pound of prepared vegetables. After putting vegetables into the basket, lower it into the container and begin blanching time as soon as the water returns to a boil, usually within one minute. If it takes longer to return to a boil, you’re using too much vegetable for the amount of water. Be sure to keep heat high for the total blanching time. Quickly and thoroughly cool vegetables

» Do not over pack jars as this can cause inadequate processing and result in unsafe food. » Nearly all fresh vegetables must be processed in a pressure canner for the required USDA processing time. Pickled foods, such as acidified tomatoes and pickles, and jams and jellies can be safely processed without pressure in a boiling water bath. » To be able to store canned foods, jams and jellies on the shelf they must be properly processed in a water bath or pressure canner. » It’s very important to allow steam to escape for 10 minutes before closing the valve or putting the weight on the vent of a pressure canner.

in ice water to stop the cooking process. Otherwise, they’ll be overcooked and lose flavor, color, vitamins and minerals. Drain the vegetables completely before packing for freezing. Frozen food is only as good as the quality of the fresh food. Although freezing doesn’t kill all bacteria, yeasts and molds in food, it does keep them from rapidly multiplying when the

food remains at 0 degrees F or less. However, surviving organisms can multiply when the food is thawed. It is important to follow directions when canning foods. Improperly home-canned foods can cause serious illness or even death. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

Test mortgage deals A woman seeking to modify her home mortgage ends up paying a company that claims it can help her. But now, after some investigation, she said she feels deceived and wants her money back. Deborah Spencer, of Harrison, called her lender recently about getting her home mortgage modified. But before it could be worked out she went on an out-ofstate vacation with her family. “We were on vacation and I got ill. I had spoken with my bank about trying to modify my loan on my house because I ended up on Social Security disability,” Spencer said. Then, while still in the hospital, she got a call on her cell phone from a law firm that said it would help with her loan modification. It faxed documents for her to sign while she was still on medication and still in the hospital. It actually faxed the papers directly to the hospital where she was recovering. “I was on medication and they were very insistent. They called constantly saying, ‘Oh, we can send everything right over and get started right away,’” she said. The firm also asked her for money. “They wanted me to give them $2,900 for a retainer. They said, ‘Well, in good faith, just give us $1,450 now,’” Spencer said. Spencer sent the money using her debit card. When she returned home she called her mortgage company representative who told her he never

heard of that law firm and questioned the whole thing. The contract Spencer received Howard from the Ain company HEY HOWARD! said she had five days in which to cancel and she tried to do that immediately, but without any success. “The law firm operator wouldn’t give me his name, just said it was Randy, and pretty much said, ‘Well, we have your money, you’re not going to get your money back,’” she said. But what about the contract which says she has five days in which to cancel? “They said it didn’t matter,” she said. I called but couldn’t get any answers from that law firm so told Spencer to file a complaint with the Ohio Attorney General. She did, and now the company has contacted her promising to return her money because she never used the retainer. Spencer is going to represent herself in dealing with her bank for that mortgage modification. She wants to warn everyone to be careful if you get such an offer of assistance from people who claim to be with a law firm.
