ALEXANDRIA — The volunteer council responsible for throwing a 50th birthday bash for Campbell County’s A.J. Jolly Park will have events going from sunup to past sundown Saturday, Aug. 17. The Jolly Park Development Council, an all-volunteer and nonprofit group, organized the event and has been working to make improvements at the 1,000-acre park. Enhancements include an outdoor stage, now under construction, overlooking the 200acre lake.

Campbell tykes are ‘dates’ for state fair By Chris Mayhew

Poe headed school for six years

ALEXANDRIA — Daniel Florence, 8, and Katie Wagner, 7, are already used to being recognized for being cute. Daniel, of Alexandria, and Katie, of Bellevue, won the Little Miss and Mister contest at the 2012 fair. They will represent Campbell County in a similar competition for tykes at the Kentucky State Fair Aug. 15. The duo will also wear their crowns and sashes when they ride in the Aug. 28 Alexandria Fair and Horse Show parade to start this year’s fair. “I think my daughter is really excited too about the fair parade,” said Sharon Wagner, Katie’s mother. “They found out they get to ride in a Jeep with the top down.” Last August, when the children were on stage for the Little Miss and Mister Contest, the microphone stopped working when the winners were announced. “We thought they were runner-up and we were so happy with that, and then we found out they won,” said Sharon Wagner. Katie’s twin sister Sarah was one of the people cheering the loudest when she won the Little Miss honor, said their mother. Sarah ended up entering and winning the fair’s Hula Hoop contest. Wagner said her daughter has been excitedly telling people about her opportunity to represent Campbell County at the fair.

COLD SPRING — Cline Elementary School Principal Lynn Poe is leaving to be closer to family and to bring National Blue Ribbon Schools status to a Lexington area school. Under Poe’s leadership, the Cold Spring elementary school was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2010. She was principal of Cline for six years. Poe’s resignation was effective July 31. She has taken a job as principal of Julius Marks Elementary School in Fayette County. The Cline School Based Decision Making Council met with Campbell County Schools Superintendent Glen A. Miller in special session July 30 about the principal position. SBDM councils, led by principals, were created by the Kentucky Education Reform Act and include both teacher and parent representatives. Miller advised the council they could either authorize him to appoint an interim principal for the 2013-14 school year starting Aug. 14 or they could begin a principal selection process now. Many people certified to work as principals are already under contract for the coming school year, and would be “nearly impossible” to get,

The day will feature more than 20 activities including live music performances from 13 bands between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m., a horse trail challenge, 5K, fishing derby and wine festival. The anniversary started as a wine festival to celebrate Campbell County’s “cottage wine” industry, and has grown into something much bigger, said Walt Dunlevy of Cold Spring, council vice chairperson. “Part of the idea with our anniversary celebration is to bring folks back to the park for the day,” Dunlevy said. The majority of the funds for the event are coming from private donations and contribu-

Miller said. Miller said Poe’s daughter will be having a baby, and Poe wants to be closer to her family. “I knew that this was really a personal thing for her, so I did let her out of her contract and it’s going to benefit her and she’s done so much for us,” he said. Miller is going to work on finding an interim principal right away, and the council will likely begin the search process in February 2014 for a new principal. Miller said he has confidence Campbell County and See CLINE, Page A2

college decided about a year ago they “wanted to be a lot more veteran friendly.” “We – a group of administrators and educators – formed a task force to develop strategies and approaches that would promote the school, inform the military of our ‘Yellow Ribbon’ status and provide fun events to honor both our returning reserve and active duty service members and their families,” Oestreicher said in an email. Enter, then, the inaugural Heroes Cup Cornhole Tournament, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, near the Bank of Kentucky Observatory on the Thomas More campus.

While 70 percent of the proceeds will go to tournament payout, 30 percent will go to Oestreicher the school’s Heroes Scholarship Fund. Oestreicher said that’s a new scholarship that will benefit returning veterans. According to Oestreicher, there will be “a whole host of vendors that are military-related.” Winners also qualify to participate in a West Virginia tournament with a $20,000 prize payout. The event is something that can be enjoyed not

only by folks who play regularly, Oestreicher said, “but also people who play in their backyard.” According to Oestreicher, the tournament is “open to everyone. “We want to make it an annual event.” Oestreicher, who has lived in Union since 2005, retired in 2012 after 31 years in the military. He spent 10 years in the U.S. Army Reserves and nearly 22 years in the U.S. Navy Reserves. Online registration is $30 per team of two. Visit or call 513-965-8687 to register.

She said she didn’t want to limit the candidate pool. “This is a great school,” Ponting said. “It’s a Blue Ribbon school and we can get some great people to come to this school.” Poe said, as tears streamed down her face during the meeting, she has not been able to talk without being overcome with emotion about leaving Cline. Poe has worked for Campbell County Schools for 10 years, and she has driven 61 miles each way to work from her home in Harrison County. Poe said she wants to spend less time in the car and more

time with her grandson and granddaughter scheduled to be born in November. “It’s going to be hard to leave such a wonderful community of parents and students and teachers,” Poe said. “However, I have the opportunity to be with my family in Lexington and close to my home.” Poe said she hopes to have student success in Central Kentucky, and she knows Julius Marks Elementary School’s council is committed to becoming a Blue Ribbon School and having students be college and career ready.

rides on canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards on the lake from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. There will be opportunities to climb into tree tops with EarthJoy Tree Climbing and pony rides from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tethered hot-air balloon rides will be offered, weather depending, from 4-9 p.m., Dunlevy said. Other activities will include demonstrations of archery, chainsaw carving, a history tent, face painting, display of antique tractors and vehicles, a farmer’s market and a chance to build a bird house and take a guided night hike. Live music will be on a

temporary stage overlooking the lake, said council chairperson Kevin Hanson of Alexandria. Hanson said groundwork has been prepared for the stage site, and more donations are needed to finish the stage before the end of the year. So far $80,000 in money and contributions of labor and materials have been donated, and about $40,000 more is needed. “I think if we have a successful event and we have folks turn out and see the potential, I think it will help to be able to envision what the permanent stage will be,” Dunlevy said.

Cline will keep moving forward despite Poe’s resignation because of the team in place. “I can’t say anything but great things about Cline Elementary. I mean you all have done great things up here and you all work so well together,” he said.

Special education now a norm as Jones retires By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — When someone is unable to tell which child in a classroom has a special need, teacher Marlene Jones feels she has done her job. In 1978, Jones was the first special education teacher hired by Campbell County Schools. She now works as the district’s director of special education and will retire in August after 35 years in the district. “I think the thing that was reinforced through her, is that each student is an individual and you need to look for their strengths,” said Roseann McCafferty, a teacher at the high school who said Jones was her mentor. The point is to address weaknesses while looking for strengths to help an individual be a contributor to society, McCafferty said. “All of us derive our self respect and self esteem from what we do in life,” she said. “Students, even with the more

extreme disabilities, need to find their place in society in what they do.” Jones, who spent 23 years as a teacher in the classroom, said special education wasn’t always an accepted profession, and people didn’t understand what she did. Jones said she spent a lot of time educating other staff members and families about what she did and what the possibilities are. “Now it’s all about equal access, and special ed is welcomed with open arms,” she said. Special education is a vehicle to help close an achievement gap, Jones said. The challenges Jones and special educators face with children and families vary widely. Interventions are created for students who are blind, deaf, have severe medical challenges, autism, Dyslexia, learning difficulties or behavior issues, she said. “I think a lot of times when there is a visible handicap, that’s what people think of as a student that’s disabled,” Jones

said. “But, there are lots of students out there that have disabilities that you can’t see that struggle.”

Jones said not all students with special needs were being directed to attend school when she started teaching. Now, stu-

dents with special needs who will likely come to the district are known by the time they are 3 years old, she said. “A lot of times you know I will get calls from families that don’t realize that their child can come to school,” Jones said. Now, there are 76 teachers and 56 para educators just in the district’s special education department. There are also several therapists on staff, she said. The goal is fairness for students, Jones said. “I don’t want them to be treated specially, I just want them to be treated fairly,” she said. “That’s the plan. We want them to be like everybody else, and they want to be like everybody else.” Jones said once a staff member in a classroom of 30 students came to her and said they couldn’t tell which children were special education students. “If they can’t tell which ones are which in those students – then I’ve done my job,” she said.

After-school centers now active in Campbell By Chris Mayhew

COLD SPRING — Summer enrichment will turn into after-school programming for children at four schools in southern Campbell County this fall. Summer day camp programs are active at the schools now where a federal grant is paying for the staffing and operation of four 21st Century Community Learning Centers within Campbell County Schools. The schools with the community centers are: » Campbell Ridge Elementary School in Alexandria. » Cline Elementary School in Cold Spring. » Crossroads Elementary School in Cold Spring. » Campbell County Middle School in Alexandria. Pam Bevan, a kindergarten teacher, taught children at Cline Elementary about carbon dioxide and how photosynthesis works in plants and trees July 16 during summer camp in a lesson titled “Trees, You and CO2.” Children performed an experiment by filling balloons with yeast, sugar and water, Bevan said. Then they wait-

ed. The children were asked to measure how much the gas was created in the expanded balloon – covering some math, she said. Summer camps have taught lessons mixed with learning and physical activities, said Camy Bankemper, program director of Cline’s 21st Century Community Learning Center. “It’s summer enrichment with a recreation factor and technology,” Bankemper said. The first week was weird science, second week was technology focus, the third week was “art attack” and the fourth week was a numbers and math theme, she said. Each week included a field trip to places including the Louisville Slugger Museum, Bankemper said. When school starts Aug. 14, the community learning center will be working to create new after-school clubs of interest to students and offer tutoring and homework help, she said. The after-school hours for the community centers will be from 3:15-6:15 p.m. daily. “It’s sort of an extended school day,” Bankemper said.

Record number of library visitors Community Recorder

This summer, more people are spending time at the Campbell County Public Library. In the month of June, more than 5,800 people participated in a program at one of the library’s branches, a 15 percent increase over June of last year. Participation by children in the library’s summer reading program has seen one of the largest increases, said Ashley Wright, children’s librarian at the Cold Spring branch. “So many kids are not only signing up, but coming in and participating that for the first time we had to order more entry forms,” Wright said. “We had more kids signed up halfway through the program this year than we did through the whole pro-

gram last year.” Wright said the library staff has worked to get people more excited about the summer reading program and offer more activities and events, including new Saturday reading program events. But, children aren’t the only ones coming more often. Kiki Dreyer Burke, public relations manager, said the library’s attendance has been continuously growing year after year. While recently the biggest increase has been in downloading electronic books, Burke said they’ve seen growth in every department, a fact she attributes to factors including word of mouth and the library being in the news a lot recently.

about books, Burke said more people are realizing that’s not the case. “I think, in general, people are more aware of the different things the library can provide,” Burke said. “The library today is a very vibrant place with a lot going on.” As the needs of the community change, Burke said, the library works to ensure they are meeting those needs by providing things like private study rooms and wireless Internet access. Burke said many things the library provides wouldn’t be possible without the financial support of the Friends of the Campbell County Public Library, a nonprofit group of volunteers who hold book sales several times a year to raise money for the library. Every year, the group donates $18,000 for the summer reading program’s prizes and activities, Burke said. The summer reading program, which began June 1, runs through July 25.

Young cheerleaders learn


By Amy Scalf

TAYLOR MILL — Cheerleading is getting extreme, even for children as young as 5 years old. Xtreme Cheer Elite is a regional competitive cheerleading squad for girls and boys from kindergarten through high school seniors, according to coach Jessica Marksberry and administrator Tracy Tebelman. They lead practices from 6-8 p.m. each Sunday at Elite Gymnastics on Taylor Mill Road. The nine girls currently on the team range from ages 5-11, and Marksberry and Tebelman hope that more youngsters will want to learn new skills by joining the squad. “We would love to have boys. We’re open to boys for sure,” said Marksberry. “All kids can develop these skills. Cheerleading should be for everyone.” She said she agreed to coach the team so her 11year-old stepdaughter, Kylie, would get involved. “She never cheered before. She couldn’t do a cartwheel, and now she does back handsprings,” said Marksberry. “She used to be shy and she’s completely not shy now. She’s one of the top leaders of the squad and is always ready to help someone else.” Tebelman said her daughter, 8-year-old Savannah, also started with no cheer, dance or gymnastics skills, and she has

learned something else as well. “Her confidence level is through the roof. She’s not afraid to do anything,” said Tebelman. “Little girls get discouraged so easily,” said Marksberry. “I don’t want to make restrictions like, if you can’t do a back handspring, you can’t be on the team. I’d rather they come in not knowing how to do anything and have a good attitude, and then we can teach them the skills they need for the squad. Then, they’re proud of what they’ve accomplished.” The team meets each week for two hours, during which they practice stunting, tumbling, cheers and dance. “We just work with whatever skills they have,” said Marksberry. “Anyone can participate.” Tebelman said the team’s routines are geared toward each person’s skill level. They expect to participate in four competitions later this year. For more information or to learn how to participate, email, visit the group’s Facebook page, or stop by Elite Gymnastics during practice times. "I think that by learning new skills, these girls are really blossoming,” said Tebelman. “Everyone should have that chance.”

Brossart has plenty of young talent coming up, including sophomore hitters Cassie Rinehard and Emma Verst, junior hitters Erin Wells and Briana Schneiders, and senior defenders Sarah Steelman and Ashley Arthur. Replacing veteran graduates Tori Hackworth and Emily Greis will be a top priority this fall, but Wiseman is excited about the team’s depth. “We work really well as a team,” Wiseman said. “We are in better shape this season than we have ever been since my time at BBHS. Our passing and serving should be on point.” Brossart scrimmages at Simon Kenton Aug. 13 and Bracken County Aug.15 before its first regular match at Newport Aug. 19. The All “A” regional starts Aug. 26 at Bracken County and Brossart’s first home match isn’t until Sept. 4 against Dixie Heights.

The Bluebirds lost five veteran seniors from last year’s team but return four starters: seniors Abby Schweitzer and Mallory Seidel and sophomores Kaitlin Hall and Jessica Ginter. Other players to watch include sophomores Kaylan Frisch, A.J. Guth and Izzy Schultz. Mulroney is excited about the young talent on the team. “All of the players have a great work ethic, and ready to get in the gym to work hard and improve, they have great chemistry and want to win,” she said. “Coming off of winning districts last season has these girls on a complete high to continue this tradition.”


Newport, coming off a sixwin season, hosts Brossart to start the 2013 campaign Aug. 19.

With the increasing amount of public money flowing through the bank accounts of quasi-government agencies such as Sanitation District 1 and others, it is clear that these taxing authorities need increased oversight and accountability. While there are several agencies which need close review, SD1’s recent activity makes them the most logical tarting Kevin Sell COMMUNITY PRESS point for further review. GUEST COLUMNIST Some citizens in southern Campbell County aren’t even tied in with the sewer system and yet are required to pay SD1 a monthly fee. The SD1 board appointees of our current judge-executive support double-digit tax increases while signing unreasonable agreements with the federal government that will cost millions of dollars. On top of that, the agency’s recent outcry to our cities and counties regarding cuts is a knee-jerk reaction that shows forgetfulness about who is serving whom. The board should be serving the taxpayers, not the other way around. Furthermore, for SD1 to imply that infrastructure and services relating to development must be cut without looking at their other bureaucratic and administrative expenses is simply absurd. A simple billing change, for example, would save thousands of taxpayer dollars. SD1 currently bills monthly and on multicolored paper. Why not bill quarterly with plain white paper? At the same time we should not have unelected SD1 board appointees negotiating and signing consent decrees with

I was invited by the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs to participate in a conference call last Wednesday morning with Gene Sperling, director of the National Economic Council, and David Agnew, director of intergovernmental affairs, and other state legislators regarding a new focus on our country’s economic recovery efforts. It was encouraging to hear plans to shift attention from partisan blame and rhetoric to investing in real ideas, projects and partnerships at the local and state level to accomplish tangible results and get our economy rolling. Mr. Sperling and Mr. Agnew said that we – state legislators, local elected officials, business and education leaders and our Chambers of Commerce – need to become the catalysts for this kind of change at the grassroots level. The cornerstones of this initiative are impressive and dovetail right into projects underway in Northern Kentucky. Those goals include secure jobs with promotional opportunities, a good education that fits the job market, home ownership and security, and reinvestment in our communities and cities. Thanks to partnerships with our Chamber of Commerce, private individuals, businesses, governmental agencies and nonprofits, we are a step ahead of the nation in creating jobs, providing housing and new commerce in our region.

The Nth Degree Distillery, located a short distance from Newport on the Levee, is currently being constructed by the Party Source in Bellevue. This mini distillery is the first to be located in Northern Kentucky and will provide meeting space for groups up to 150. Tours showcasing the distilling process and related activities will begin November. Northern Kentucky is literally exploding with projects that are reinventing our waterfront, defining our cityscapes, creating real job markets and providing hope and opportunity for our residents. We know how to cast aside partisan and political preferences and focus on what’s important to us as Kentuckians and Americans. We know how important grassroots collaborations are when it comes to getting things done and the exciting things happening in Northern Kentucky bear that out. I was honored to be part of the conversation with White House officials and so proud that we have capitalized upon our great relationships, partnerships and ingenuity to find a way out of the recession toward a path to prosperity.

Popular class learns the old-fashioned way By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor

Why make your own jam when you can just buy it at the store? “It’s the love that goes into it,” answered Lynda Crouthers of Elsmere. She grew up learning how to make jam from her great aunt and has been hoping to bring back the family tradition. “I want my grandchildren to be able to enjoy it.” On Monday morning, July 29, she came to the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service in Burlington to learn how to make jams and jellies. “I love watching people eat the things that I’ve prepared,” she continued. “So I prefer it be homemade for them.” Delashea Daniels of Elsmere came for another reason. “I have three daughters, and two of them love grape jelly. That’s

all they eat, all the time,” she laughed. “So if I can make it at home and control which ingredients are in it, it would be awesome, because we’re living a healthy lifestyle.” Michelle Winters of Crescent Springs has a 6-year-old son. “He loves to cook and bake anything in the kitchen,” she shared. “He has tons of energy.” She thought making jam would be a good activity for him. “Hopefully it’ll wear him out.” “We have a lot of fruit trees,” explained Ann Crary of Burlington. “We have peaches, plums, blackberries, raspberries. So I need to find something to do with them.”

The Jam and Jelly Making class has been offered since 2009. Diane Mason and Kathy Byrnes are the instructors. One of their objectives that day was demonstrating how to make strawberry jam. Together with the students they crushed the berries, added pectin, brought the mixture to a boil, then added sugar. The result was a bubbling red liquid emitting a sweet aroma guaranteed to make you hungry. One by one, students poured the hot jam into sterilized jars. “This class is usually held every other year,” Mason said. “The waiting list is filled because more and more people are getting interested in it.”

After spending over three hours learning the basic skills, the students were confident to try it at home. “This is so simple. It’s something that I can teach my kids and grandkids,” Crouthers said. “We just have to be particular about the directions and following the correct order,” Crary added. Carol Ann Morrow of Union was glad to discover the extension service after moving from Cincinnati five years ago. “I think it is the most welcoming place in Boone County. I have learned a lot that has made me a more confident homemaker,” she said. “I hope I never run out of classes that I can come to.”

Garden harvest makes for good baked breads I can tell what’s going on, food wise, from my readers simply by the requests sent in. This week zucchini and cucumbers dominated. Apparently everybody’s zucchini is producing nonstop, just like Rita mine. Heikenfeld I like RITA’S KITCHEN the fact that our Community Press family wants to find ways to use this summer veggie. Most of the requests were for zucchini bread recipes. Zucchini bread freezes well and is pretty easy to make. And the variations are endless, like the two recipes I’m sharing today. Both are in my Recipe Hall of Fame. Requests for cucumber recipes were slightly behind the zucchini inquiries. I always think of my German mother-inlaw, Clara, when I make my version of her marinated cucumbers with fresh dill from my garden.

Classic marinated cucumbers/aka German cucumbers with vinegar and sugar

Feel free to add sliced onions when adding dressing, like Clara did. 2 large or several small cucumbers (1-1⁄2 pounds) sliced thin 1 tablespoon salt


Dressing: mix togeth-

⁄2 cup vinegar - cider or clear (I like cider) 3 tablespoons sugar or to taste Pepper to taste Generous palmful fresh dill, chopped (to taste)


Put cucumbers in colander and sprinkle with salt. Let sit 20 minutes, stirring now and then. Drain and pat dry. Pour dressing over. Stir and put in frig to chill a couple of hours or overnight.

Chocolate zucchini bread/cake

It’s a cross between a bread and a cake, so you decide what you want to call it. Try milk chocolate chips for a milder flavor. 1 -1⁄2 cups shredded packed zucchini 1 cup flour 1 ⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⁄4 teaspoon allspice 1 ⁄2 cup canola oil 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 ⁄2 cup light brown sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 ⁄4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x 5 loaf pan. Set aside shredded zucchini. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Set aside. Beat oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until well blended and fold in zucchini. Add flour mix-

Cucumbers and dill make for an excellent marinated salad.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

ture, mixing just until combined. Fold in chips. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 to 65 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooling.

Butterscotch zucchini bread

Don’t take it out of the oven too soon. I baked one pan 50 minutes – it looked great coming out of the oven, but it sunk in the middle when it cooled – a sure indication of underbaking. 3 eggs

1 cup oil 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups sugar 2 cups grated zucchini (squeeze moisture out before measuring) 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ginger 1 ⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 ⁄2 cup rolled oats 1 package (3.4-ounce size) instant butterscotch pudding mix 1 cup nuts, raisins or other dried fruit

Beat eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar together well.

Add zucchini. Then mix the flour and the rest of the dry ingredients together and then add to the egg mixture, blending well. Pour into 2 greased, floured, wax paper lined pans. Bake 1 hour at 350oF degrees or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Lemon frosting Mix and spread on bread after it cools: 2 cups confectioner’s sugar, sifted 2 tablespoons lemon juice 4 tablespoons butter, softened

more zucchini bread recipes and how to freeze zucchini recipes. Readers want to know: How do you freeze zucchini? Shredded: I don’t peel mine, though colleague and professional baker and canner Cheryl Bullis does. I don’t blanch but do pack mine in a little more than 2 cup measures, since when you thaw it, you’ll lose volume as liquid drains out. Slices: Cut into slices, 1 ⁄4 to 1⁄2 inches thick. Blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes. You’ll want the water boiling and enough to cover the zucchini. You can blanch several batches in the same water; just add more water if necessary. Cool immediately after blanching in ice water, drain very well, and pack in freezer containers or freezer baggies. (One reader likes to lay the slices in a single layer and freeze hard, uncovered, and then pack into baggies). Smoosh out all air to prevent freezer burn. Do with a straw and just suck out air or lay bag flat, smoosh out air with your hands, and freeze. Frozen zucchini should be thawed slightly, not all the way, before using in cooked dishes.

Washing fruits and vegetables


Partnership for Food Safety Education all recommend using cool running water to rinse produce prior to use. If the produce has a tough skin or rind, or one that is particularly bumpy, like cantaloupe, use a soft brush and scrub the outer skin well while rinsing under cool water. Even if the peel is not eaten, the produce should be rinsed. Think of a banana. Any dirt or grime on the peel may transfer to your hands and you may contaminate the flesh while enjoying the banana. With something like a watermelon, where you don’t eat the rind, you can transfer any contaminates from the outer layer to the flesh that will be eaten when cutting the item with a

knife. Keep in mind there are strict rules and guidelines for pesticide use with proDiane duce. All Mason pesticides EXTENSION have a NOTES pre-harvest interval or waiting period from the last application to the harvest date. It is best to wash fruits and vegetables just prior to use. The shelf-life of the produce will be extended if water is not sitting on the skins. Water helps promote decay and rot. Most fruits and vegetables are best stored in the refrigerator to extend their shelf life. Tomatoes, however, do

better when stored at room temperature. Peaches and other stone fruits also need to be ripened at room temperature. Purchase the amounts of fruits and vegetables you plan to use within a reasonable amount of time. Take care to store them properly. Wash them just prior to use. Store all cut fruits and vegetables in the refrigerator and plan to use within a day or two. With these simple steps, you should be able to enjoy the wonderful flavors of a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Styx kicks off Florence Freedom concert series


By Missy Ware Contributor

FLORENCE — The Florence Freedom has announced its Miller Lite Concert Series for 2013. The first national act of the series is fan favorite Styx which plays Friday, Aug. 9. Gates open at 6 p.m. “Since 2010 the Freedom have hosted the annual Miller Lite Concert Series here at the ballpark. Over the years we’ve had bands such as Foreigner, Eddie Money, 38 Special, Three Dog Night, KC and the Sunshine Band and Dierks Bentley,” said Josh Anderson, general manager of the Florence Freedom. “Of all these shows, none was more popular than the Styx show, so we were looking forward to bringing them back.” For those taking a “stay-cation” over the Labor Day holiday, the Florence Freedom has booked Grand Funk Railroad on Saturday Aug. 31. The group has long been a radio favorite to the point where, according to Jim Shoe of 88.9fm ClassX, “I doubt if a day goes by that their hits like, American Band, Bad Time, and Locomotion are not heard.” Anderson agreed, adding, “Grand Funk Railroad probably should be in the Rock and Roll Hall

Local library trustee attains state certification Community Recorder

Cathy Howard, a member of the Campbell County Public Library Board of Trustees, has completed the Kentucky Public Library Trustee Certification Program. The Trustee Certification program is the first of its kind in the state and is available to all Kentucky public library trustees through the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA). It was created to provide trustees with tools to help them fulfill their responsibilities to the libraries and their communities. A total of 101 Kentucky public library trustees have completed the certification program, which is voluntary and includes five

For as long as I can remember, my father has been a police officer. For the first few years of my life he served the community of Dayton, Ky. Around the age of 6, we moved to Wilder where he has served for the last 35-plus years. I spent my summers as a child playing around the “barn-shaped” police department, at the park in Wilder, watching my father come and go in his cruiser beaming with pride that I was his daughter. Children are in awe of police officers and I was always thrilled to let all my friends know that the man driving cruiser 226 was my father. I can remember vividly my mom ironing his uniform and placing all his pins and badges on his

one-hour classes. Topics covered are trustee and director roles, effective board organization, budget and finances, policies and advocacy. Four of the classes were created by the American Library Association with the remaining class designed and delivered by KDLA staff. KDLA provides equitable access to quality library and information resources and services, as well as helps public agencies ensure that legislatively mandated documentation of government programs is created, efficiently maintained and made accessible For more information on KDLA resources, programs and services visit or call 502-5648300 ext. 315.

I often wonder if my father really knows how proud I was to be his daughter growing up. As a parent now, I can appreciate the stress of wondering if we’re making the right decisions for our children and agonizing over past mistakes. Struggling with saying, “I’m sorry,” because as parents we’re supposed to have all the right answers, and living up to

that era of our lives. It must be for my father too. I hope he always knows how proud I am to call him, Dad. As I type, I realize there are so many children and adults whose earthly fathers did not/ could not show up for them when times were good or bad. Yet, I pray you are comforted to know that you do have a father who will show up for you at any time. “The Lord said to me, you are my son. Today I have become your Father.” Psalm 2:7. May you find comfort and peace, knowing that you need only ask, and your heavenly father will show up. Julie House is a member of East Dayton Baptist Church and former resident of Campbell County.

at you. I am concerned about the kids getting stung. How can I get rid of them? Answer: These “wasps on steroids” are known as “cicada killers.” They have been flying about and burrowing into lawns, gardens and play areas, prompting concern from homeowners. Despite their menacing appearance (up to 2 inches long with rusty red head/thorax, amberyellow wings, and black and yellow striped abdomen), the wasps seldom sting unless provoked. Cicada killers do not live in communal nests like hornets or yellowjackets. They overwinter as larvae within cocoons deep in the soil, emerg-

the standards we set for ourselves. I may not be privy to every area of my father’s life but I know this: he has worked hard to provide for his family over the last 50-plus years and he has proved over and over for me that when times really get tough, he will be there. Although he officially retired several years ago, he continued to work part-time. Yet recently my father decided it was time to “hang up” his uniform for good, make his retirement truly official and enjoy the golden years with my mother. I am thrilled at the notion of my parents being able to travel and enjoy their children and grandchildren in their retirement years. Yet it is bittersweet to let go of

om, and stuffs into individual brood chambers. She then lays an egg on top of the cicada, backs out, and seals the cell behind her. The egg hatches within a few days and the hungry larva devours the offering, eventually transforming into an adult the following summer. Cicada killers seldom sting and the females normally do not defend their burrows. The males, while incapable of stinging, sometimes dive-bomb passers-by, or hover menacingly nearby. Insecticide treatment may be warranted where the soil burrows become unsightly, or the wasps are digging in a hightraffic area such as along a sidewalk, playground, or sand trap on a golf course. Individual burrows can be effectively sprayed or dusted with most lawn and garden insecticides (Sevin, Bayer Advanced Lawn & Garden Multi-Insect Killer, Spectracide Triazicide Soil & Turf Insect Killer, etc.), or a wasp and hornet aerosol. Multiple nests may need to be treated with a broadcast application to the ground surface, using a pump up or hose-end sprayer. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is set to host its annual Chamber Golf Classic at Summit Hills Country Club in Crestview Hills, Aug. 20. As most business men and women are already aware, a lot of business is done on the golf course. The Chamber Golf Classic is an opportunity to network while enjoying a day of fun on the links with colleagues. Participants will have breakfast, lunch and an afternoon social hour, complete with appetizers, beverages and golf awards.

“Each year the chamber hosts its Golf Classic and it continues to be one of their most popular events,” said Nathan Decker of HORAN, this year’s annual Chamber Golf Classic Chair. “Participants particularly enjoy the fact that this event combines business with fun for a great time with your peers.” The cost to attend is $150 per individual and $600 per foursome. Participants will have the options of beginning their game at either the 7:30 a.m. or the 1 p.m. shotgun starts. Reservations can be made by calling 859-578-

The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky has selected seven rural and urban communities throughout the state for funding through its new Investing in Kentucky’s Future initiative. This five-year, $3 million program seeks to test innovative ways to reduce risks of chronic disease for today’s school-aged children as they grow into adults. “The health of our next generation is at stake,” said Susan Zepeda, CEO and President of the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky. “Our goal is to help communities make positive changes in policies

and service access that will help our children grow into healthy, productive adults. Regardless of the challenges, we want to help communities find new pathways to positive solutions.” These initial grants include funding for planning, along with training and technical assistance, so community groups can determine the most promising strategies to launch effective, sustainable models to improve children’s health. Communities chosen for the IKF initiative include Clinton County School District, Fitness for Life Around Grant County, Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky (Perry County Wellness Coalition), Green

River Area Development District (Partnership for a Healthy McLean County), Kentucky Heart Foundation Inc. (Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities, Ashland), Kentucky River Community Care Inc. (Breathitt County), and Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness. Chronic diseases are diseases that last over time, decrease quality of life and increase the risk of early death. They include cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Substance abuse and some mental illnesses are also chronic. These chronic diseases occur at higher rates in Kentucky than in surrounding states.
