ALEXANDRIA — In response to an almost $5 million decrease in assessed property values, council is considering a tax rate increase to keep city property revenues nearly flat for 2012. A first reading of an ordinance assessing a rate of $1.81 per $1,000 on property value was heard by council Aug. 2. Council will vote on the proposed ordinance at the Aug. 16 meeting. The 2011 rate was $1.78 per $1,000 of assessed property value. “The thing is with the economy, and so on the assessment in Alexandria has gone down about $5 million,” said City Attorney Mike Duncan. “So therefore the compensating tax rate is a little bit higher than last year’s rate.” The compensating tax rate determined by the state raises about the same amount of money in property taxes for the city as the previous year, Duncan said. If everyone pays their taxes on time the proposed property tax rate for 2012 will raise about $1.019 million compared to $1.02 million raised by the 2011 rate, he said. The proposed tax rate will cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $3 more than the previous year’s tax rate, said Mayor Bill

Rachford. Using the proposed rate, the city will still take in about $1,300 less in property taxes in 2012 than was raised in 2011, Rachford said. Anderson Council member Barbara Weber said the city’s tax rate hasn’t been increased in more than 22 years. “Is everybody really positively sure that there is Rachford not anything else in the budget that could possibly not be in there?” said council member Joe Anderson When times are tough and the economy is down a family cuts back and don’t go out to dinner, buy new shoes or go on an extra trip, Anderson said. “Are you sure in the budget there’s not something in there that just isn’t needed that could be taken out?” Anderson asked. Rachford said the finance committee had a series of meetings on the budget and went through each department, Rachford said. Council approved a balance $3.88 million budget June 21.

Wal-Mart impacts assessments By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

The assessed property value in Alexandria city limits went down $4.95 million in value from 2011 to 2012, said Campbell County Property Valuation Administrator Dan Braun. “It’s a reflection that the market still has not rebounded fully,” Braun said. Alexandria still has not seen the growth people have been anticipating in the past few years in the housing market, he said. Alexandria’s assessment primarily reflects a lower assessed value of $7.45 million for WalMart, Braun said. Wal-Mart is appealing the assessed value for the company’s Alexandria property at the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals. The PVA’s assessment of Alexandria properties is inclusive the $7.45 million assessment value Wal-Mart is seeking at the state tax appeals board instead of the PVA’s recommended value. Wal-Mart appealed the PVA’s assessment of $14.53 million and the Campbell County assessment appeals board ruled on an amount of $12.53 million, which Wal-Mart has appealed to the state level. Braun said he believes and hopes the state tax appeals board hearing for the Wal-Mart proper-

ty will be in September. The decision will impact Alexandria’s property assessment value, he said. “An MAI (commercial) appraiser conducted a market value appraisal on the property and determined that the assessor had the property overvalued,” said Daniel Morales, director of communications and community relations for Wal-Mart in an email. Wal-Mart follows local and state regulations in every market the company does business and the tax appeals process is available for all property owners in Kentucky, Morales said. During the 2012 fiscal year Wal-Mart collected more than $231 million in sales taxes for Kentucky, and more than $38.1 million in state and local taxes were paid in the state, he said. The only other outstanding state tax appeals board assessment case from Campbell County is also in Alexandria, Braun said. The local Campbell County appeals board ruled the assessment for the Walgreens property in Alexandria was $4.48 million. Walgreens is seeking a value on the property of $2.54 million, he said. From 2010 to 2011 the assessed property for Alexandria saw an increase in assessed value by $2.7 million, Braun said.

ICE CREAM

a 'Lawn Fete' highlight

By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Services haven’t been in German at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Alexandria since 1909, but the traditional “Lawn Fete” continues every summer. A live band played Saturday, Aug. 11, as people dined under a tent on the church lawn and children played games on a stretch of North Jefferson Street blocked off for the annual occasion. Inside the church’s basement church members Dennis and Carol Valerius of Alexandria dished out vanilla and sherbert ice cream. “Some of these people come up just for the ice cream,” said Dennis Valerius. Members of the Alexandria church make handmade ice cream in antique wood ice cream makers for the event that is sometimes called an ice cream social, said Fred Losey of California, president of the church’s council. The Lawn Fete tradition is almost as old as the church, and people debate whether it is actually a 100-year-old or a 150-yearold tradition, he said. “The ice cream freezers are probably 100 years old,” Losey said. The church was founded in 1850 in a log building behind Southern States Cooperative on South Jefferson Street – mainly by German immigrants, Losey said. Members now meet in church built in 1900 at North Jefferson and Main streets. Until 1909, church services were in German. The congregation has been growing in recent years and has about 300 members now, Losey said. Everyone looks forward to the Lawn Fete each summer, he said. The goal is only to have fun,

and it’s not seen as a church fundraiser, Losey said. “This is like an old country ice cream social,” he said. Pastor Chad Abbott said he was incorporating the message of the Lawn Fete into his Sunday, Aug. 12 sermon. Christ is often found at parties eating food with people, Abbot said. Whenever Christ wanted to gather his disciples to say something important, it was over food, Abbot said. “This is kind of a time to celebrate fun, joy and the gift of life,” he said.

Alexandria resident Ken Racke said he has been a member of the church since he was born in 1934. His great-grandfather, Wilhelm Fredrick Matz, was a pastor of the church after the Civil War, Racke said. Racke said he still has some of this great-grandfather’s papers. The Lawn Fete is one of many traditions the church keeps. The event generates interest for new members, and it’s a lot of fun, he said. “It’s just been that way for years, and we keep doing it,” Racke said.

Alexandria officers earn state honors By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Alexan-

dria police officers Natalie Selby and Mark Branham have received statewide recognition for their specialties of working with school children and people with mental disabilities. Selby was named 2012 Kentucky Crisis Intervention Team Officer of the Year award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness during the annual conference in Louisville July 28. And Branham received the 2012 Rookie of the Year award from the Kentucky Association of School Resource Officers Rookie of the Year.

Natalie Selby

Selby is chairperson of the Northern Kentucky area Crisis Intervention

Team, and is the point person in Alexandria for crisis situations. The job is mostly dealing with traumatic events, Selby said. “A lot of it is mental health issues,” she said. Selby has a lot of training, said Joe Alexander, assistant chief for the Alexandria Police Department. Selby’s qualification as a crisis negotiator will be needed if there is ever a situation where the department has to respond to a “bad situation,” Alexander said. Selby has embraced handling problems other officers without the training can’t handle as well, he said. “A lot of people in situations we’re coming across now are not really criminal in nature, and before police really had no option than to put people in jail,” Alexan-

Mark Branham

Alexandria Police Department officers Mark Branham, left, a school resource officer, and Natalie Selby, a trained crisis negotiator who works with people with mental health issues, display their awards inside Alexandria's city building Aug. 2. Branham was named the 2012 Rookie of the Year award from the Kentucky Association of School Resource Officers, and Selby was honored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness as the 2012 Kentucky Crisis Intervention Team Officer of the Year. CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER der said. Selby is the only qualified CIT trainer in Northern Kentucky and one of two CIT trained officers within Alexandria’s department, according to a news release from NAMI of Northern Kentucky. According to the news

release Selby “does her best to prevent calls to the police triggered by those with a severe mental illness. She maintains a confidential list of people in her Northern Kentucky district whom have triggered calls to the police in the past and regularly visits

with them in their homes. Selby develops personal relationships with families, and talks with them to help make sure people stay on their medications and pursue further treatment, according to the news release.

Alexander said Branham volunteered to take the SRO job at Campbell County Middle School after the sudden death of Jim “Stumpy” Sticklen on March 4, 2011, when he collapsed from a medical emergency while training in Corbin, Ky. The students and teachers at the middle school already love Branham, and following Sticklen’s close rapport and connection with students was going to be a tough job for anyone, Alexander said. Everyone says there will never be another “Stumpy,” he said. “Mark has pretty much gotten as close to him as you possibly can.” The job is extremely rewarding, Branham said. “I’ve got one son, but I’ve got over 1,200 kids now,” Branham said. “So, it’s very special.” Receiving the rookie of the year is “awesome” because it is really an award “for the kids,” he said. “I know why Stumpy stayed in the schools for so long,” Branham said. “You’ve got the chance to change so many lives.”

Fatality in bus crash Community Recorder

report

SILVER GROVE — A 24year-old Southgate woman has died after the car she was driving collided with a school bus amidst heavy rains outside Silver Grove city limits after 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9. Dawn Mays, 24, of Southgate, the driver of the car, was transported to University Hospital in Cincinnati and was later pronounced dead, said Campbell County Police Department officer Andrew Noyes. Noyes said he responded to a dispatch call at 4:15 p.m. of an accident involving a car and Silver Grove Independent Schools bus on the two-lane Four Mile Road. None of the 20 students aboard the bus were injured. The driver’s brother, Terry Mays, 29, of Alexandria, was a passenger in the car and was also transported to University Hospital for his injuries. Details of his condition are not known at this time, Noyes said. Investigation into the accident shows Mays drove left of center into the incoming lane of traffic as she traveled north into Silver Grove, he said. The accident happened immediately after storms

The bus driver was taken for standard tests as required by state law after any bus accident, he said. A doctor and nurse were already at the school at the time of the accident performing physicals, and they examined all the students in the accident, Ellis said. Parents were advised to take their children to the hospital if they thought it was in any way necessary, he said. Kenton County Schools provided a crisis management team that arrived at the school at 8 a.m. to speak with and counsel the students involved in the crash, and a local fire chief came and spoke with the students at 9 a.m., Ellis said.

Silver Grove Police Department Chief Douglas Holt was the first responder to the scene and a medical helicopter was requested because of the severity of the injuries, Noyes said. “Air Care, it was requested, but dispatch advised because of the weather, they couldn’t respond,” Noyes said. The students on the bus are members of the school’s volleyball team and were on their way to a match in Bracken County when the accident happened, said Superintendent Ken Ellis. The crash was about 300 to 400 yards from the school, and he and other staff walked to the site immediately, Ellis said. “When we were walking down to get the kids it was pouring rain,” he said.

County negotiating police salaries

By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County and the police union have yet to agree on the issue of potential raises for this year and beyond. The county’s contract with the Fraternal Order of Police for Campbell County Police Department

officers is in place through June 30 2015, but a July 1 deadline to agree on revised salaries for officers has passed with no agreement in place, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The county and police union entered into a new contract on July 1, 2011, Horine said.

When the contract was approved in 2011, a “wage re-opener” was put in the contract for the time period beginning July 1, he said. The “wage re-opener” was put in place because the county and police union both agreed to negotiate the salary portion of the contract because of un-

predictable financial factors during times of economic uncertainty, Horine said. The agreement was to reopen the contract negotiations – but only for setting salaries and raises, he said. “Obviously July 1 has come and gone, and we do not have an agreement on how to resolve the opener,”

Horine said. Other provisions in in the contract including including policies and procedures agreed upon in 2011 are not up for renegotiation, he said. Any potential salary raise for officers could be backdated to July 1, but that is a possible point of negotiation, Horine said.

There are automatic adjustments in the contract for people after they have a certain number of years of experience, and the county’s officers will continue working at the current rates and salary structure, he said. There has not been an across the board wage adjustment for this year, Horine said.

Family Nurturing’s affair going country ... and rock By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

COVINGTON — While the mission is still the same, the party looks much different. The Florence-based Family Nurturing Center is hosting its 18th annual August Affair fundraiser from 7-11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at the Radisson Hotel in Covington. Formerly called the Art Affair, organizers decided it was time to spice up the event this year. “We’ve made some big changes this year,” said Tracy Fuchs, director of development for the Family Nurturing Center. This year’s event takes on the “Boots & Heels” theme. “We’re combining the best of rock and country,” Fuchs said. This means attire can range anywhere from denim, rhinestones, leather or cocktail. “Our attire this year is

anything goes,” Fuchs said. During the night, there will be a “Hottest Heels” and “Best Boots” contest where the winners will win gift cards to shoe stores. Keeping with the theme, there will be items up for auction from the genres’ biggest stars – including an electric guitar signed by every member of The Rolling Stones, an “Abbey Road” album signed by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and a framed, autographed photo of Johnny Cash. Even if music isn’t your thing, there are plenty of items up for grabs like a framed “Star Wars” movie poster signed by the entire original cast and George Lucas and tickets to the Ellen DeGeneres Show. All autographed items

come with certificates of authenticity. Tickets are $70 in advance and $80 at the door and include two hours of open bar, hors d’oeuvres all night, a craft beer tasting and live music from rock and country cover band Off-R-Rockers. Despite the changes in the theme, proceeds are still going to help the Family Nurturing Center’s mission of child abuse education, prevention and treatment for families.

NEWPORT — Enticed by live entertainment and camaraderie, senior citizens will also find dozens ways to check their health or connect with services during the annual Northern Kentucky Senior Expo at Newport on the Levee Thursday, Aug. 23. The expo, in its 18th year, will be in the Gallery Building of Newport on the Levee from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23. The free event is organized by the Northern Ken-

The Senior Expo has become a tradition for area seniors, said Marsha Dufeck, director of the county-

operated senior center. Michael Hurysz, senior human services specialist for NKADD, and his staff have been the lead organizers of the event. About 1,500 people attend the annual event, Hurysz said.

Events make Special Olympics splash By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Principals and high school students will take a plunge for Special Olympics of Northern Kentucky during two water-filled fundraisers in August. Student athletes from Bishop Brossart High School and Campbell County High School will start the fund-raising efforts by washing cars during “Jocks Helping Jocks” at the All Season Car Wash, 7725 Alexandria Pike, in Alexandria from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday . Bishop Brossart students will wash cars from until noon, and Campbell County students will take over from noon to 4 p.m. Later, staff and principals from 10 area schools will make a

splash for Special Olympics during the fifth annual Dunk the Educator/Principal at the Alexandria Village Green shopping center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 25. Alexandria resident and business owner Shari Hennekes is the organizer of both events. The car wash was added to get high school students involved because they don’t get as excited about the dunking booths, Hennekes said. About 15 athletes from each high school will participate in the car wash and compete in teams to see which school raises the most money, she said. The traditional dunk-the-principal fundraiser will include the new principals of Campbell County Middle School and Reiley Elementary School taking a seat in the dunking booth, Hennekes said. And for the first time an

educator from the Main Street Christian Education Center will participate in a dunking, she said. Each school competes against the other to raise the most money through selling three softball tosses for $1. Top school fundraisers from the past, Cline Elementary School in Cold Spring and Campbell Ridge Elementary School in Alexandria, are both gearing up for another big year, Hennekes said. Anthony Mazzei, principal of Campbell Ridge, has been the only educator in the dunking tanks every one of the event’s five years, she said. Lynn Poe, principal of Cline, has also brought a lot of support to the event in recent years. “Cline has been working on fund-raising since May or June,”

she said. Dunk the educator/principal keeps raising more money each year with last year’s amount of $6,000 being the biggest ever, Hennekes said. Special Olympics volunteer and softball coach Carol Farwell of Alexandria said money raised through the events helps pay for a variety of needs, from uniforms to fees for the athletes. Special Olympics athletes are drawn from 10 Northern Kentucky counties, although most of them are from Campbell, Boone and Kenton counties, Farwell said. The athletes range in age from 8 to 77, she said. “There’s not an age limit. There’s a place for everybody,” Farwell said. Some Special Olympics athletes are in wheelchairs, and oth-

ers have Down Syndrome or autism. Farwell’s 23-year-old son Jeffrey has Down Syndrome and plays shortstop. The importance of Special Olympics shines every year, Farwell said. One girl on the softball team hasn’t scored a run in five years, but she’s still an important part of the team, and she enjoys the sport, Farwell said. A boy with autism joined the team this year first time and said, ‘Don’t I look good with my uniform on?” in a show of emotion and with a smile on his face, she said. “It’s not the score at the end of the day,” Farwell said. “This kid at the end of the day, he’s going away with ‘I did good.’”

Is (community) college worth it?

One can scarcely open a newspaper, surf the web, or watch a news program these days without encountering this question: Is college worth it? Naysayers point to the rising cost of tuition, the growing level of student debt and persistent, high unemployment rates to argue that a college education doesn’t have the value it once did. Instead of merely entering the debate, we need to reframe the question: Is a community college education of value? The facts about the value of graduating from a community college like Gateway are too important for any parent of a college-age student or any student paying his or her own way through school to overlook. There is no escaping this fact: on average, the more you learn, the more you earn. The data overwhelming show that there is a direct correlation between personal earnings and

the level of educational attainment. Statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor consistently reveal that people G. Edward with postsecHughes ondary educaCOMMUNITY tion have a RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST lower unemployment rate and higher median weekly earnings than people with a high school education. Earning a credential like a certificate, diploma or degree makes a big difference. In addition, information from the Labor Department demonstrates that people with an associate degree or higher are more likely to be employed and earn higher wages than those who have some college but no degree. This trend will continue for the foreseeable future. Today,

even in the current economic climate, the Department of Labor reports that unemployment rate for people with associate degrees is 6.8 percent, well under the average of 9.4 percent for high school graduates and 14.1 percent for high school dropouts. Looking ahead to 2020, job growth of 18 percent for associate degree graduates is expected to outpace the 12.2 percent growth in jobs for high school or GED graduates and even the 16.5 percent growth for jobs requiring bachelor’s degrees. An associate degree delivers significant value from an earnings perspective as well. Labor statistics show the median annual wage in 2010 for a person with an associate degree was $61,560. That is 80 percent more than the average earnings of a high school graduate and just $2,000 a year shy of the median annual wage for those with a bachelor’s degree.

But there is more to the value of a community college education. Public community colleges like Gateway provide the best form of access to higher education. Our tuition rates are significantly lower than public four-year colleges and universities and dramatically lower than for-profit colleges. For example, Gateway’s tuition of $140 per credit hour is less than half the tuition cost of any public university in Kentucky, and a variety of scholarships and financial aid are available to help offset that cost. Plus, credits earned at regionally accredited colleges like Gateway transfer to four-year universities. In Kentucky, our credits transfer to public universities by law. Many independent institutions, like Thomas More College, as well as public ones, such as Northern Kentucky University, offer Gateway graduates significant scholarships to

transfer and complete a degree. By going to Gateway for two years and completing an associate’s degree, students can save 40 percent or more of the total cost of a four-year degree! So if you want a college degree without much debt, with highly qualified faculty in small classes, enroll at colleges like Gateway for the first two years, obtain an associate’s degree and then transfer. Is community college worth it? The answer is a resounding yes. At Gateway, we know that education truly does pay, and we would be delighted to show you how. For more information about Gateway, including financial aid opportunities, visit www.gateway.kctcs.edu or call 859-441-4500. G. Edward Hughes is president and CEO of Gateway Community and Technical College.

Effort under way to reduce whooping cough

The Center for Disease Control reports the U.S. is heading for the worst year for pertussis or whooping cough since 1959, with more than 19,000 cases and nine infant deaths reported so far this year. This is twice the usual number of cases. The state of Kentucky also has high rates of whooping cough with 179 cases statewide and 79 (44.1 percent) of these cases coming from Boone, Kenton, Campbell and Grant counties. Northern Kentucky usually sees 25 cases of whooping cough per year. Whooping cough is a very

contagious disease spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing while in close contact with othChristina Rust ers. Many infants and COMMUNITY children get RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST whooping cough from their mothers, fathers, older brothers or sisters, or babysitters who may not even know they have whooping cough. Infants less than 6 months of age are at high risk for get-

ting whooping cough because they have not received all of their whooping cough (DTaP) vaccinations. These infants get very sick and many must be hospitalized. Adults can also get whooping cough and they can become very sick too. Tdap is the whooping cough vaccine given to adults who are more than 18 years of age. Signs of whooping cough usually begin within seven to 10 days after having close contact with someone who has whooping cough. If you or your child develops a cold, congestion, fever, runny nose and severe cough, or a cough that lasts

more than two weeks, it may be whooping cough. The best way to know is to contact your doctor so you can be tested and receive antibiotics if the test for whooping cough is positive. Women who are more than 20 weeks pregnant should also get the Tdap vaccine so they can pass their antibodies to their baby for protection against whooping cough during the first months of life. Pregnant patients who are delivering their babies at St. Elizabeth Edgewood and their immediate family members or infant caregivers more than 18 years old can get the Tdap

vaccine for free at the Pertussis Cocooning Clinic. The Clinic is located at St. Elizabeth Edgewood and is open 1-2 p.m Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays; 8-9 a.m. Mondays and Fridays; and 3-4 p.m. Wednesdays. The Tdap vaccine is also available for $4 at the Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton County Health Department Centers. Christina Rust is a maternal child educator at St. Elizabeth Healthcare.

Fighting foreclosures in Kentucky Since 2007, nearly 9 million homes have been lost to foreclosure. Banks foreclosed on nearly 67,000 homes in Kentucky since the height of the mortgage foreclosure crisis in 2008. This crisis brought our country to its knees and turned the American dream into a nightmare for families in every community in our country and our commonwealth. As you may recall, my office was part of the national foreclosure settlement announced earlier this year between state attorneys general and the nation’s five largest banks. Our participation in this historic settlement secured $58 million to provide direct and immediate assistance to Kentucky families and communities affected by the mortgage foreclosure meltdown. Nearly $39 million of the settlement is available to homeowners who faced foreclosure and had loans with Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citi and Ally/ GMAC. An independent administrator is allocating this money to consumers who qualify for refinancing, loan write downs, debt restructuring or

payments of up to $2,000. For more information on qualifying for this segment of the settlement, visit www.agJack Conway .ky.gov. On July 30, I COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST announced the COLUMNIST allocation of the remaining $19.2 million of this settlement to help create affordable housing, revitalize abandoned or vacant properties and to assist Kentuckians who have lost their homes. Keeping this money was no small task. During the budget process in Frankfort, I fought to make certain that his money went to consumers and communities; communities like Louisville, which has seen more than 17,200 foreclosures since 2008. I was pleased to be joined by Mayor Greg Fischer at the press conference announcing the distribution of $1.5 million to the city of Louisville, of which $750,000 will go to the Vacant and Abandoned Property Initiative and will be matched in part by the Bloomberg Foundation. This will help

Brossart football looks to beat the odds

Small team young but experienced By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

ALEXANDRIA — The odds are stacked against Bishop Brossart’s football team. Despite having an enrollment of boys on par with Class 1A schools, the Mustangs play in Class 2A. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association used numbers from 2006 and 2007 in its latest football district alignment calculations. That left the Mustangs with an uphill battle, which they will need to overcome again this season. “Nearly every school we play is bigger than us,” said head coach Matt Reinhart. “We’re the only school in the state that plays up.” With enrollment down in the school, it has been difficult to increase numbers in the football program. Last season’s team featured just four juniors and five seniors. Additionally, nearly every student-athlete at Brossart plays at least one other sport. Many Mustangs play three sports. The multi-sport athletes make it hard for any team at Brossart to have a complete offseason of workouts. “About 70 percent of our kids play at least one other sport and about 40 percent play three sports,” said Reinhart. “The good thing is we got good dedication

from the kids who were with us in the offseason.” The Mustangs enter the 2012 season with 32 boys on the roster. On the bright side, many of the returning players saw significant varsity action last year as freshmen and sophomores. “We’ll still be young, but we’re an experienced team,” said Reinhart. Two seniors have emerged as leaders. Linebacker and tight end Jacob Dennis and running back/ linebacker Jacob Elbert will lead the otherwise young squad. Chase Britt and Jeffrey Steffen anchor the offensive line, which Reinhart believes will be the strength of the team this year. The Mustangs have speed on defense, but lack depth at every position. “The key for us will be staying healthy,” said Reinhart. Last season, the Mustangs started strong before finishing the season on a six-game losing skid. Once they hit district play, the challenges mount and the size and depth disparities begin to show. With the challenges facing them in district play, it is important for the Mustangs to start fast. “A good start can help you out later in the season,” said Reinhart. “There’s no doubt that our schedule gets tougher as the season goes on.” The Mustangs open the 2012 campaign against Middletown Christian at home on Aug. 25.

Bar raised for Camel football

Campbell County earned district title By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

One of the biggest surprises in Northern Kentucky football last year was the Campbell County Camels. After a slow start in head coach Stephen Lickert’s first season, the Camels got hot late in the season and earned the Class 6A District championship. They will not be able to sneak up on opponents this season. Lickert Within the program, the bar has been raised. “Our kids understand what we’re trying to do and our expectations,” said Lickert. “We’d like to repeat as district champs and advance farther in the playoffs.” The Camels will attempt to reach their goals, led by two seniors playing new positions. Tyler Durham moves to quarterback. Tyler Walsh moves to free safety. Durham will lead the offense, while Walsh leads the defense. “Those are such natural leadership positions,” said Lickert. “It’s nice to have those seniors there.” After grinding to the district championship with a power running attack last season, the Camels will air the ball out more this season. Durham and his receiv-

BRANDON SEVERN/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER ers have been working hard to improve the relatively untested passing attack. “We’re going to pass the ball more,” said Lickert. “Durham has had an offseason of passing work and we’ve been perfecting our passing game.” Lickert expects breakout seasons from wide receivers Jake Zabonick and Bobby Moore. Alex

In their second season, Lickert and his staff have plenty of reasons to justify their high expectations. The Camels have had an offseason of consistency and improvement. Players have been able to take practice snaps at the same position, without having to move around while the coaches try to figure out who fits best where. “We feel comfortable at every kid at every spot,” said Lickert. “We feel like we legitimately have an offense and a defense. The key will be staying healthy.” Last season, the Camels made changes in their bye week, then earned their first win of the season by defeating Simon Kenton. From there, they rolled into the

NEWPORT — Last year did not go as planned for Newport Central Catholic. The Thoroughbreds entered the season as the defending Class 2A state champions, with an experienced senior quarterback prepared to lead the team to back-to-back titles. After playing like champions during the regular season, the ‘Breds were upset by eventual state champ Holy Cross in the playoffs. This year’s NewCath squad has not forgotten the deflating feelings felt after that loss. “I think it’s definitely in the back of their minds,” said NewCath head coach Eddie Eviston of his returning players. “We felt that one of our worst games of the season was our last. We want to do everything we can to not repeat that this year.” Running back Dylan Hayes will be counted on to carry the ball, and the team. Hayes will be a workhorse, especially early in the season as the ‘Breds work in a new starting quarterback. Senior Josh Cain has big shoes to fill at the quarterback position, where he replaces three-year starter Brady Hightchew. The ‘Breds will find more ways to get the ball to wideout Mac Franzen. “We have to adjust our offense to what our talent is,” said Evis-

Newport Central Catholic seniors, from left, include: Running back Dylan Hayes, quarterback Josh Cain, middle linebacker Brady Thacker, and defensive tackle Elliot Rust. CARRIE COCHRAN/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER ton. Lineman Brady Thacker returns from injury and will be a leader on both sides of the ball. Elliott Rust, Jake Haas, and Matt Lenz join Thacker up front. Several of NewCath’s offensive starters will also start on defense. Eviston expects to open the season with eight two-way starters, but would like to see that number decrease as the season goes on. “We hope we get younger guys

to step up into starting roles,” said Eviston. “We’ll always have a few iron men that play nearly every snap, but we want to see some other guys step up.” The key for the Thoroughbreds will be replacing Hightchew’s production. The pressure will not just be on Cain; Hayes, Franzen and Pete Collopy will all need to contribute on offense. “You can’t really replace his playmaking ability,” said Eviston of Hightchew. “When plays

would break down, he’d seem to make something happen.” The ‘Breds enter the season hungry to avenge last year’s early postseason exit. Whether or not they can do that will depend on how many players step up and make plays on offense in critical moments. NewCath opens the 2012 season Aug. 17 at Dixie Heights at 8:30 p.m. as part of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown.

Check tire age before making purchase were only able to get a warranty based on the tread wear of the problem tires. Metztger Howard then went Ain to another HEY HOWARD! tire store where the Department of Transportation identification was checked on the tire’s sidewall. The first two numbers of the identification tell the week in which the tire was made – in the case of one of her tires it was week 13. The next numbers tell you the year in which it was made – in that case it simply said 4, which meant 1994. “He really didn’t look at all four tires, he just looked at one and told me that they shouldn’t be on the car because they’re way outdated,” Metzger said. The tires Metzger bought new are actually 17 years old. Clearly, the

You may not know it, but tires can wear out – even if there’s plenty of tread left on them. In some instances, even the car tires you buy new may be too old. That’s what a College Hill woman learned. Kathleen Metzger bought four new tires earlier this year and, after a few months, she started noticing problems. “It felt like it was out of alignment really bad. You had to have your hands on the wheel pretty firm in order to keep it corrected,” Metzger said. Metzger’s husband Ken put on a spare tire and, as he did, he saw the problem with the recently purchased tire. “I saw you could see the belt right at the end of the tire. These tires are falling apart. There are all these microcracks and fissures in the tires. I knew that was probably what the problem was,” he said. They went back to the store that had sold the tires, but were told they

Attention Seniors!

tires sat on a store shelf for years before they were sold. And technically there is no expiration date on tires, but now the government says after six years tires tend to rot and can be dangerous. Metzger said as a result of what she’s learned, “I’m very concerned. I haven’t been driving my car for the last few days. I just would like a refund or all new tires.” So, I contacted the store that sold the tires and the owner told me he was unaware of the age of the tires when he sold them. Given that the tires are deteriorating after less than a year, he’s now given her a complete refund. Remember, tires can deteriorate inside even if they look alright on the outside. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says tires are only good for six to 10 years. Anything older than that, it says, are just not safe on the roads.

Easy-to-make fudge recipe for kids

Update on Silverglade’s chicken salad clone As mentioned previously, Annie Hoffman’s recipe for chicken salad (her version of this popular salad) is not the recipe that Silverglade’s makes and sells. Their recipe is proprietary and Mike Silverglade said Annie’s recipe is not even close to his recipe. To get the “real deal,” stop by Silverglades at their Findlay Market location or their deli at Eighth and Sycamore streets in downtown Cincinnati.

Rocky Road fudge for kids to make

The last couple of Rita years, my Heikenfeld grandsons Luke, Will RITA’S KITCHEN and Jack have submitted items to the junior division at our Clermont County Fair. This year they made fudge, cinnamon spirals and decorated cupcakes. They were so excited, as usual. I brought their offerings in, but I was a bit late in getting them there, so their items couldn’t be judged. They did get ribbons for participation and I learned a valuable lesson. This fudge recipe is easy and really good, an excellent starter recipe for kids wanting to learn to cook. 1 14 oz. can condensed milk (not evaporated milk) 3 cups chocolate chips 1 cup butterscotch chips 2 teaspoons vanilla Handful of mini marshmallows 1 cup mixed nuts (optional)

Line an 8-inch by 8inch pan with foil, letting foil hang over sides, and spray the foil. Bring milk to a boil. Add chips and cook on low until melted. Add everything else. Mix. Pour into pan. Chill until hard and cut into shapes.

Tuscan pork chop kebabs

Heat a skillet and film pan with olive oil. Add 8 cups spinach or chard (rinse, drain and leave some water clinging to the leaves), chopped if necessary, 2-3 teaspoons garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until spinach wilts. Rita’s Tuscan pork chop kebabs feature a citrus marinade. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

tenderloin, trimmed ¼ cup olive oil or bit more Zest and juice of one large lemon (2 tablespoons juice) or more to taste Salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2-3 bell peppers: Use your favorite. I like a combo of red, yellow and orange, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 large red onion, cut up to fit on skewers

Combine olive oil, juice, salt and pepper and garlic. Taste and add more of what you like if necessary. Add pork and marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or up to a couple hours in the refrigerator. Thread pork, peppers and onions alternately onto skewers. Grill 10 minutes or until pork is done, turning occasionally. Be careful here as pork cooks quickly.

Sautéed spinach or Swiss chard

We like this served with sides of corn on the cob and sautéed spinach. About 2 lbs. pork

Mini banana bread loaves

Reader Eileen Bittman sent this to me. “Bernice, my friend, said this was a great recipe,” Eileen said. I like that it makes five mini loaves, plenty to share.

1 18.5 oz. box yellow cake mix 1 3.4 oz. box banana cream flavor instant pudding 4 large eggs 1 cup water ¼ cup canola oil 1 cup mashed fully ripe bananas ¾ cup chopped walnuts (optional) 5 foil mini loaf pans, sprayed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat everything except bananas and nuts until well blended. Add bananas and nuts and mix just until blended. Pour into loaf pans and bake 30-40 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

We are down to the last row of corn, so I’ve been blanching and freezing it. I like to blanch the whole ears and then take the kernels off. I put the whole ear into the center hole of an angel food pan and it keeps it stable so the corn kernels don’t fly everywhere. I am always amazed at how many ears of corn it takes to fill a pint jar, at least three. And if you’re growing flowers like petunias and they are looking leggy, go ahead and pinch them back. It will take a couple of weeks but you’ll get a new flush of blooms. I like to give them a light dose of fertilizer, too. My zinnias and marigolds are starting to go to seed and I’m going to save seeds for next year. Think about doing that yourself. It’s a lot less expensive than store-bought seeds and a good lesson for the kids to be stewards of their environment.
