With the cooperation of Campbell County Fiscal Court, a network of equine advocates and volunteers have helped horse riders hit a longer trail at A.J. Jolly Park. The dual horse riding and hiking trails grew in one year from about eight miles to 20 miles in time for this year’s fourth annual trail ride day Saturday, Sept. 18. By noon more than 53 horse trailers, some with as many as eight horses inside, were parked near the start of the trails. About 48 Northern Kentucky Horse Network volunteers have spent more than 2,500 working hours on blazing and maintaining the trail network during the past year, said Jim Mayer, a Pendleton County resident and vice president of NKHN and chair of the network’s Trail Blazers committee. “We will clear more trails in the winter,” Mayer said. However, the trail network is nearing the point where they can’t be expanded much more unless the county opens up a last bit of acreage where five more miles of trails could be added nearby the golf course, he said.

Trails only one focus of regional horse network

The Northern Kentucky Horse Network is comprised of 300 members from nine Northern Kentucky counties, said Jim Mayer, vice president of the NKHN board. The network is more than about maintaining horse trails, he said. There are regular clinics to help educate people how to protect the horses on issues ranging from how to care for the animals and health, Mayer said. For information visit the website Mayer said the network wanted to thank all the county commissioners, the Judge-executive and the county administrator because the trail network couldn’t have happened without their support. “We’re hoping to eventually add a campground,” he said. Adding a horse trail campground will require the construction of either a “picket line” where horses can be tied up yet still maneuver around some at night or barns, Mayer said.

Kindervelt fundraiser

Kindervelt, the fundraising arm of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, is having a Bunco dice game party and fundraiser at the Wilder city building, 520 Licking Pike at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30. Kindervelt 56, serving Campbell, Kenton and Boone counties, is also seeking new members from all areas of Northern Kentucky, said Sheila Horan of Cold Spring, chapter president. The cost for the Bunco party is $12.50 in advance or $15 at the door. For information about the Bunco party call Debbie at 468-8826. For information about Kindervelt visit the website

Jolly Park Saturday, Sept. 18, during the Northern Kentucky Horse Network’s fourth annual trail ride day on the now 20-mile network of trails in the county-run park. Mayer said it’s only fair that the county has instituted a $5 per day or $15 per year trail tag fee because the county has spent $6,100 to insure the trails. Dave Rust of Cold Spring, an NKHN member, said what’s great about the trails at A.J. Jolly is that they’re close to Cincinnati, and most other scenic horse trails are several hours drive away. “This is as pretty as going to Cave Run Lake or anywhere else,” Rust said. Deer and turkey can often be seen when riding the trails, he said. The trails are just one more attraction available at the park in addition to golf, a 200-acre lake, Frisbee golf and camping, Rust said. “This is a big asset for Camp-

Fewer prisoners were be booked into Campbell County’s jail in the past fiscal year than in any time since before 2004. Greg Buckler, the county’s elected jailer, presented the news of the drop in bookings and a bevy of other details contained in the Campbell County Detention Center’s annual report at the Thursday, Sept. 16 Fiscal Court meeting in Newport. The annual report measures the fiscal year from July 1, 2009 to

June 30, 2010. The full report, nearly 100 pages, will be available soon online at the detention center’s website, Buckler said. Buckler said the drop in the number of prisoners being booked into the jail is possibly because there are police officer positions left vacant in the county because of tight budgets in the current economy. The total number of prisoner bookings dropped from 6,907 prisoners in 2008-’09 to 6,525 during the 2009-’10 year. The numbers had been steadily

on the rise since there were 6,195 prisoners booked into the jail in 2003-’04 according to the last year of consecutive information available from the jail. For 5,205 of the 6,525 prisoners booked into the jail in the 2009-’10 fiscal year, it was their first time in the county jail. The remaining breakdown for how many times people had been in jail was 916 for the second time, 249 people for the third time, 91 people for the fourth time, 32 people for the fifth time, and another 32 people or a sixth or more time.

ulation for the year, 3,290 people, were unemployed. In terms of the home addresses prisoners claimed, Newport had the highest number of people at 1,349 people. Cincinnati was the second leading city, with 822 of its residents booked into Campbell County’s jail, and Covington was third with 640 residents of that city booked into the county’s jail. The numbers show that Campbell County is a often a tourism county when it comes to crime, Buckler said.

Milward said the trails are gaining a regional reputation as being a good place to come with a horse. Dan and Tracy Chaplin of Grant’s Lick were riding on the new section of trails Sept. 18, for the second time, having ridden them on Labor Day weekend as well. Tracy said she likes the view of the lake on the trail and it’s convenience to home. “You have to travel a good distance somewhere out of Northern Kentucky or southern Ohio to find any other good trails to ride,” Dan said.

District 2 commissioner race a rematch By Chris Mayhew

In a rematch of the 2006 ballot for the District 2 Campbell County Commissioner seat, incumbent Democrat Dave Otto is once again facing Republican challenger Pete Garrett in the Nov. 2 general election. Garrett, of California, who operates Garret Gunsmiths in Newport, received 48 percent of the vote in 2006 and was defeated by Otto, of Fort Thomas, who owns and operates Otto Printing & Entertainment Graphics in Dayton. Garrett, 56, is running on a platform of being an advocate for southern Campbell County, including working with residents on needs including more water lines. Otto, 60, first elected to the seat in 1986, is running for re-election for another four-year term as being part of a successful businessteam approach to county government that has already produced results. Garrett said property taxes have really come to the forefront for his campaign, and he thinks the incumbents in office including Otto aren’t raising taxes for the first time in 10 years because of the ramifications raising them might incur. The Campbell County



Fiscal Court recently set a tax rate that took the compensating rate, meaning taking in the same amount of revenue as collected in the previous year, without taking an up to 4 percent allowable increase in revenue. “It’s an election year, so they’re going to claim they didn’t raise your taxes,” Garrett said. Garrett said people should remember that it was only a few years ago that Fiscal Court tried to raise taxes by 9.2 percent. Otto said Campbell County has the third lowest tax rate of all cities and county governments in Northern Kentucky. “With that little tax base we still run a pretty tight ship,” he said. Otto said he runs a successful million dollar company that creates product for every part of the globe. “I think the county needs someone who knows how to run a true business and meet payroll when he needs to,” Otto said.

If you want to simplify your insurance...

Otto said he thinks the main issues the county needs to deal with are creating jobs and keeping a low tax base. There’s reason for hope that the economy is turning the corner, including the fact that county revenues overall all have gone up by $150,000 compared to the previous year, he said. Garrett said the main issue people need to remember is that he wants to represent the entire county, and he would like to see a boat ramp built in Newport. But, it’s especially important to be a voice for the southern end of the county, he said. Garrett said people have complained to him that the county’s recycling bins in the southern end of the county are always full, but none of the people on the county Fiscal Court seem to be doing anything about it. “We need people from southern Campbell County who know the issues, and these people, all four from northern part of the county aren’t cutting it,” he said. Otto said he’s committed to county government creating an environment where people can raise their families, go to church, educate their children and have nice recreational opportunities.

“The people in Campbell County know that I’m honorable, ethical and honest, and most of all that I want to keep county government stable and not coming up with outlandish proposals,” Otto said. Otto said he’s had a hand in helping create things like the soccer and baseball fields at Pendery Park, but that so did many others and the point is that he’s part of a business team approach to government in Campbell County. “One person can’t take credit for all the good things that are going on in Campbell County,” Otto said. On the issue of smoking, Otto has consistently and openly expressed his support for an ordinance to prohibit smoking in public places. Garrett said it’s not the proper role of the counties or any local government to legislate smoking a legal product in public places, and that the state should take the issue up. There has been talk of a smoking ban in Northern Kentucky for five years, and nothing has happened yet and now there are only two county Fiscal Courts involved, he said. “It’s been poorly managed like so many things they’ve done,” Garrett said.

The jail collected about $800,000 in bond money in the past year as compared with $1.6 million for the 2008-’09 fiscal year, Buckler said. “The economy seems to be affecting that, people can’t afford to pay out the bonds,” he said.

A “Pot of Gold” will be given to the winner at each table. There will also be door prizes, bake sale and jewelry sale. For reservations call Rita Walters at 781-4094 by Oct. 10. Tickets are $15 each. oner community service program has saved government and nonprofit entities in the county $1.41 million for the year. Prisoners in the program earn time off their sentence for time spent working in the community, he said. The City of Newport has received the biggest benefit of about $201,000 from the program for the year, Buckler said. From cleaning up after the annual fireworks on Labor Day weekend to other duties, the City of Newport has estimated the volunteer work saves the city about 3.5 employees in the public works department, Buckler said. The detention center has been able to use money from the prisoners’ commissary account to buy three vehicles for transporting the prisoners to work sites, he said. The commissary account is funded by prisoners’ purchases using money left for them by family to buy items including snacks and personal hygiene items, Buckler said. “So, no tax dollars are being used there,” he said.

People are starting to look at where their food is coming from, and it’s good for people from urban areas to connect with farmers that don’t live too far from them, Sorrell said. There’s also the issue of how much gasoline is used to ship food from far away

One of the topics Sorrell will be talking about is the new Campbell County Proud Gift Basket program through the Campbell County Farmland Work Group. “It’s another avenue for our farmers to make revenue from their farm products,” said Linda Grizzell, an employee of the Campbell County Conservation District, which works in association with the farmland work group. Options available for the gift baskets include wine from three Campbell County

Eagle Scout gives ’em shelter By Chris Mayhew

Thanks to the work of Johnathan Callahan, 18, of California, students on the playground at Sts. Peter & Paul School have gained a playground shelter, and he’s gained a sense of accomplishment. Callahan designed and built a shelter, mostly for shade, at the Sts. Peter and Paul this summer. “I picked the school because I’m a member of the parish,” he said. Callahan said designing and receiving approval for the shelter plans was the hardest part and took more than a year. “The actual building process only took three days,” he said. Callahan said he visited the school at the start of classes this year and received thank you cards with handmade drawings from the pre-kindergarten students at the school. “It was just nice to see that my Eagle Scout project was making a difference to these kids, just to see their faces it meant the world,” he said. Callahan has been involved with the Boy Scouts of America since he was in kindergarten. Scouting has been a fun way to hang out with friends and pass along outdoor experiences and learning.

Attaining Eagle Scout has been a long-term goal, he said. “It’s one of those special things, oh you’re an Eagle Scout,” Callahan said. “It just feels good to know that it’s a special honor.” Lorrie Rawe, a pre-kindergarten teacher at the school, said Callahan donated all the materials himself and did the work himself. Having the shade helps the children enjoy the playground and have a space to take a break from the sun on hot days, Rawe said. The size of the shelter was impressive, but so too was the quality, she said. Even the four posts holding the structure up were smoothed out so the children wouldn’t hurt their hands, Rawe said. “He did it on such a grand scale. It has been wonderful,” she said. Johnathan is the son of Cindy and Tim Callahan and a 2010 graduate of Bishop Brossart High School. Cindy said being an Eagle Scout is something the entire family has looked forward to as much as Johnathan has, and it can open doors later in life. “Being an Eagle Scout says a lot about who you are about, a dedicated person and someone who starts things and finishes it,” she said. “It’s just been exciting to see our son grow and living out the values of scouting.”

Bluebird Arts and Education Alliance to kick off new season By Amanda Joering Alley The Bluebird Arts and Education Alliance of Highlands High School is gearing up for its second season. From plays to author visits, the alliance has some exciting things in the works, said Chuck Keller, alliance chair and teacher at Highlands. “We started this last year as a way to bring in some money to enhance our arts programs,” Keller said. “Last year was a success, and we hope it is even better this year.” Keller said the group formed in response to budget cuts from the state and partnered with groups

like Playhouse in the Park, WNKU and the Blue Marble Children’s Bookstore to bring in a variety of events to the school’s newly renovated Performing Arts Center. With the money raised last season, Keller said the group is working to bring writers-in-residence, accomplished writers that live in the area, to the school to work with the students on their writing skills. This year, the alliance’s season will feature three plays by Playhouse in the Park, an author series in the spring featuring local authors, and possibly come collaboration with a local opera. Keller said the alliance serves two purposes, from raising money for the school to bringing arts

opportunities for the community as a whole to enjoy. The first event, the world premiere of Playhouse in the Park’s production of “The Worst Happy Day Ever” is at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9 at Highlands. “What I think is going to be nice about this play is that while it’s geared towards children, it is also meant to appeal to adults,” Keller said. “I think this is a great event to kick off the season.” For more information about the alliance and its upcoming events, visit Tickets for the upcoming show, which cost $7, are available on the website, at the door, and at Bowman’s Framing, 103 North Fort Thomas Ave.

Bellevue starts new district website By Amanda Joering Alley

St. Thomas School kindergartners Kailey Gearding and Eyan Martinez make pattern bead necklaces during a lesson about colors and shapes. PROVIDED

Bellevue Independent School District now offers a new and improved website for parents, students and community members to get information. The new site, at, went live earlier this month. “We wanted to be able offer more information and a more personable experience to those that visit our site,” said Janis Winbigler, the district’s chief information officer. “The new site is a lot more functional than our old site.” Winbigler said the new site, which includes separate pages for the district, the high school and the elementary school, offers new features, mainly teacher pages. Teachers can put assignments

and class information on the pages, making it easily accessible from students’ homes. “The teacher pages are a great tool not only for students, but also for parents to stay informed about what is going on in their child’s classroom,” Winbigler said. Another feature of the new site is the ability to highlight the most important information for readers and put it at the top of the site, Winbigler said. He said teachers throughout the district have already received positive feedback about the new site from parents. “We are excited about the new website, not only because it gives a good first impression of our district, but it also provides a wealth of accurate, up-to-date information,” said Superintendent Wayne Starnes.

Local teams start district play By James Weber

Exhibition season ends for most local prep football teams this weekend. While the first five weeks of the 2010 season were eminently more entertaining than the NFL preseason, the games played so far hardly count for anything concrete unless a team gets in a three-way district tie at season’s end and the strength-of-victory tiebreaker comes into play. Certainly many early games were fun rivalries and offered plenty of chances for energetic teenagers to do something memorable. But this week, the stakes rise as district seeding games begin. Bishop Brossart hosts Ludlow in 1A action 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25 at Newport Stadium. Brossart is a programbest 4-0 after beating Eminence 34-13 Sept. 17 in the team’s home opener. Campbell County hosts Boone County 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Camels’ 6A

district opener. The Camels lost to New port Central Catholic 26-23 Sept. 17 to drop to 1-3. NewCath improved to 4-1. Brady Hightchew threw for 159 yards and one touchdown to Chris Kelly. Kelly had 50 receiving

yards and 122 on the ground with two scores. He also led the defense with 14 tackles, eight solo. Jake Cain had 36 rushing yards and a score and 51 receiving yards. Clayton Bohla had two catches for 49 yards.

Pete Collopy had a fumble recovery on defense. For Campbell, Michael Kremer threw a TD pass to Joel Geiman and rushed for one. Tyler Durham had a TD rush. NewCath hosts Covington Catholic 7 p.m. Friday.

NKU adds transfer

The Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball program landed another talented transfer Tuesday when former University of Tennessee guard Josh Tabb was added to the roster. Tabb, a 6-foot-4 senior from Carbondale, Ill., played

three years at Tennessee and saw action in 96 games for the Volunteers. As a junior, Tabb started 11 times and played in 33 games. He averaged 3.4 points and 1.7 assists per game that season. During his freshman season at Tennessee in 2006-07, Tabb netted a career-best 11 points and grabbed five rebounds during a road game at Mississippi. “Josh has a chance to step in and be an impact player in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, and he’s going to make his presence felt offensively and defensively,” NKU head coach Dave Bezold said. “He was a key player in Tennessee’s rotation, and his quickness and strength in the backcourt is going to cause a lot of problems for the opposition.” Tabb averaged 21 points, five assists and six rebounds as a senior at Carbondale High School in 2005. He later played at Harmony Prep in Cincinnati and led the team to a Division I national runner-up finish.

NKU adds standout

Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball head coach Dave Bezold has added former Maryland prep standout Bobby Shannon to the 2010-2011 roster. Shannon, a 6-foot-5 wing player, led all Washington, D.C., area players in scoring during his senior year at Potomac High School. Shannon averaged 27.1 points and led his team to a share of the Prince George's 3A/2A league title and the Maryland 2A South Region postseason championship. Shannon played at the College of Southern Maryland last season and led the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference in scoring at 23.0 points per game. He also led the Hawks in field-goal percentage (.545) and rebounds per game (6.3). “Bobby is really an explosive offense player and a great athlete who can score the ball in a variety of ways,” Bezold said. “He was one of the top high school players in the D.C. area, and a number

of schools were after him four years ago. Bobby is also a great leaper, and he has a chance to really help this team immediately.” After attending The Patterson School in Lenoir, N.C., Shannon signed with Marshall University but never played for the Thundering Herd. Other schools that recruited Shannon included Arkansas, Georgetown, Maryland, Villanova, Memphis, UTEP, George Washington and Iowa State.

Zink is player of week

Thomas More College senior place kicker Dustin Zink, a Newport Central Catholic High School graduate, was named the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, Sept. 13. Zink tied a Thomas More single-game record for extra points made by connecting on a perfect eight-of-eight conversion attempts for the Saints in a 56-12 non-conference victory at Hanover College on Sept. 11.

Offense key to Brossart’s postseason By Adam Turer

If Bishop Brossart High School’s boys’ soccer team can find its offense, the Mustangs could be a player in the postseason. Brossart has jumped out to an 8-6-1 record through Sept. 19. That mark would look better, but the Mustangs have been held to one goal or less in each of their six losses. “We’re a little behind, but we’re trying to turn things around,� said head coach Brian Goller. Brossart defeated Russell, 4-1, Saturday, Sept. 18. The victory was keyed by a revamped lineup designed to help the Mustangs score more goals. Among the changes made was moving Nick Birkenhauer from defense to midfield. “We’ve had trouble scoring. We’re trying to finish,� said Goller. “We’re switching up our lineup to see if we can jumpstart our offense.� Birkenhauer missed almost all of the 2009 season due to injury. His return


Brossart senior David Schuler shoots during Brossart’s 5-1 win over Conner Saturday, Aug. 21. this season helped solidify the defense. Now, the Mustangs hope he can be a spark that leads to more goal scoring. “Nick has great foot speed,� said Goller. “We think he’ll help us with our attack.� So far this season, the offense has been paced by Dylan Dierig. Dierig has scored 12 goals through Sept. 19, after scoring just

two all of last season. The Mustangs have been able to possess the ball during the majority of playing time, but have failed to capitalize in their losses and draws. “Ball control has been our strength,� said Goller. “We have been able to control the flow of the game.� The Mustangs have a senior-laden team with the potential to challenge for a

district championship. Brossart needs to be clicking on both sides of the ball if they want to overtake their district rivals. Playing from behind has been a struggle for the Mustangs. The defense has remained stout, but the offense’s struggles have affected the entire team. “Constantly chasing our opponent puts a lot of pressure on everybody,� said Goller. “Every turnover and missed shot compounds itself.� Big District matchups against Dixie Heights and rival Newport Central Catholic loom on the schedule the week of Sept. 2026. The NewCath match is amplified by the fact that most of the NewCath and Brossart players played together through elementary school. The Mustangs are playing for their seeding in the district, which could end up any place between the second to fourth seed. “Our district is tough. Any matchup is going to be a big challenge,� said Goller. “We’re trying to get on a roll.�

I am writing this letter to the editor to show my endorsement of Bill Rachford Mayor of Alexandria. Bill will improve communication and cooperation with the citizens and city council. Bill will be consistent in the enforcement of our ordinances. You will call him He will call you back! Bill is well suited to the office of mayor as evidenced by his extensive background in finance, military service and leadership roles in various organizations.

He wants increased community involvement, a citywide beautification program to restore community pride and good planned growth to keep Alexandria “where the city meets the country.” The office of Mayor should be more about “we” and less about “me.” He will always be approachable and respectfully listen to any advice,

Elect Rachford

I have lived and served in Campbell County my entire life, and have a deep interest in this election. I retired as president of the largest bank in Campbell County, and served most of the businesses, leaders and citizens of Alexandria for many years.

In support of Woeste

On Nov. 2, each voter in Campbell County will have the opportunity to decide on who will become our next Family Court Judge. You

can stick with the appointment or you can choose to elect a true family man and public servant, Rick Woeste. Rick is a small business owner and attorney with many years of domestic practice, and he has volunteered countless hours as a volunteer firefighter.

Waltz: I share voters’ Davis: We need to fight government frustration tax and spend agenda As a Boone County resident, I appreciate the opportunity to speak directly to voters in my hometown paper. My name is John Waltz and I am running for Congress because I share the frustration and anger so many other people are feeling this year. Our government is not functional and I’m tired of watching those who are supposed to represent us play their own political games. When I came back from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, I needed help from the Veteran’s Administration. I went to our own congressman, Geoff Davis, for help and I got the brush-off. I had to take my case all the way to the White House before I got the help I needed. I realized too many other vets have the same problems and I started working for veterans by trying to pass legislation like the new GI Bill. I also realized how much of our hard-earned money was being flushed away in Iraq to out-of-control contractors that weren’t doing their jobs. I helped start a nonprofit to rebuild hospitals in Iraq. As I worked for vets and got more involved in politics, I came to know one thing for certain. Washington, and in particular, Davis, is not working for us anymore. We need to make

some serio u s changes, and we can start right here at home by electing someJohn Waltz one that Community k n o w s it’s Recorder what like to guest s t r u g g l e columnist to make e n d s meet. I don’t think there are enough people in Congress like you and me. I care about the wars because I actually served in the Navy. I care about getting health care reform done right because it has affected my family every bit as much as it has affected yours. I care about financial reform because I know too many people that have lost their homes and their jobs. These issues are not abstract and we need legislators that can relate. Here are a few of my plans when I get to Congress. 1. I’ll cut my own salary in half and will fight to see that the president and Congress can never get pay raises if they haven’t balanced the budget. Davis

has voted for every pay raise he could. 2. Congress should be tied to the same programs they enact for the people. Representatives can pay into Social Security and get a 401K like the rest of us. Maybe then they would actually fix Social Security instead of kicking the can down the road. 3. Congress should be obligated to use the same health care system all the rest of us use. 4. No more shipping jobs overseas. I’ll vote to end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs out and work hard to reward small businesses for creating jobs. 5. I am tired of bickering

political games. I’ll work with anyone when it means creating jobs, getting our budget under control, or helping people succeed. I appreciate the Recorder’s efforts to inform people about the candidates and thank them for their efforts. John Waltz, a Florence resident, is the Democratic candidate for the 4th District U.S. House of Representatives seat.

America is at a critical crossroads. The Washington agenda set by President Obama and Speaker Pelosi is not working. With the failed trilliondollar stimulus, the trilliondollar government takeover of health care, the answer given has been more government, more spending, more borrowing and more taxes. Our unemployment rate continues to hover near 10 percent and the federal debt exceeds $13 trillion. Simply put, we cannot spend our way to prosperity. Empowering the American people will lead us toward prosperity. As a former small business owner, I understand the importance of rewarding ingenuity and creativity I am committed to fiscally responsible solutions for creating jobs here in Kentucky. I am fighting against the borrow, bailout, tax and spend agenda in Washington. The federal government must adopt a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution to require fiscal sanity in Washington. Restoring fiscal discipline to Washington is necessary to protect and promote the opportunities of the next generation. Otherwise, we are robbing our children of a future. Washington must be made to manage the nation-

al budget the way families and small business owners do: balanced. As I Geoff Davis listen to Community Kentucki a n s Recorder across the guest district, I columnist constantly hear deep concerns over the government takeover of health care. This fiscally destructive law must be repealed and replaced with reforms that will protect your doctor/patient relationship; Medicare benefits for seniors; Social Security; and reduce the cost of health care. Working with a constituent, I introduced H.R. 3765, the REINS Act, which would rein in the regulations imposed by unelected Washington bureaucrats burdening Kentucky families and businesses. The REINS Act would require Congress to take an up-or-down vote on every new major rule before it can be enforced on Americans. For example, when the EPA imposed an $800 million consent decree on Northern Kentucky to comply with an unfunded mandate for storm water com-

What do you miss most about pre-recession life? “My investment portfolio, my retirement plan and mostly the lack of fear that I’ll have to keep working until I’m 75 just to afford the state-run home they’re going to put me in when the bank forecloses on my house! ‘Nuff said!!!”

“What do I miss most about pre-recession life? The anxiety produced by the choice I make for health coverage each year as a retiree. “I thought it was bad, but it’s nothing like what I anticipate later in the year when I wlll have to

CATCH A STAR Newport resident and former University of Kentucky basketball player Mark Krebs has written a book titled “Beyond a Dream” about his mother’s battle with cancer, along with his life and college basketball career. PROVIDED

Newport resident, former UK basketball player supports 2010 Race for the Cure After seeing his mother battle breast cancer for nine years, Newport resident and former University of Kentucky basketball player Mark Krebs is doing what he can to help others affected by cancer. When he was a high school freshman, his mother Terri Krebs was diagnosed with breast cancer and given nine months to live, her son said. Through the chemotherapy and radiation, she held on for nine years, until June 30 of this year. Throughout her battle, Mark said his mother was very active with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. “Now that she’s passed, I feel it’s my turn to give back by supporting and promoting the race,” said Krebs, who graduated from UK in May. In a book he recently wrote called “Beyond a Dream” Krebs chronicles his

mother’s battle, along with his life and college basketball career. Along with the book, Krebs is also working to create the Terri Krebs Dream Foundation, meant to aid children affected by cancer and other terminal illnesses.

Charlie Stenken, 92, king of the Campbell County Senior Picnic, whispers to Betty Lightfoot, 95, of Fort Thomas, queen of the picnic, after their coronation with a party hat and party bonnet before the start of dancing at the 43rd annual senior picnic at Pendery Park in Melbourne Sept. 15.

Senior picnic draws a crowd for fun By Chris Mayhew

More than 850 people massed under tents at Pendery Park in Melbourne Wednesday, Sept. 15, for what is perhaps the biggest annual picnic in the county. The 43rd annual Campbell County Senior Picnic featured dining, dancing and games like bingo and cornhole, and as usual drew dozens of politicians handing out stickers and shaking hands. Like many of the attendees, Betty Lightfood, 95, of Fort Thomas, who was elected “queen” of the picnic, said she comes every year because she gets to be with friends and see people she knows but doesn’t get to see very often. Lightfoot’s friends and family members encouraged her to put her name in as a queen candidate because she’s still active. Lightfood had a bonnet placed on her head and she danced handin-hand with the picnic king, 92-year-old Charlie Stenken of Fort Thomas. “I figured that there weren’t many people who could beat that age and move around,” said Fay Hoffman, 78, of Fort Thomas, who nominated Lightfoot for the queen honor. Hoffman said Lightfoot came from Hungary with her mother when she was

6, emigrating to the U.S. through Ellis Island. Lightfoot still mows her own grass, bowls once-aweek, and has a regular card playing night with friends and family at her house. “I walk a mile every morning,” Lightfoot said. “I do everything all on my own.” Diane Kruse, 68, of Alexandria, said she comes and tosses cornhole and plays bingo each year at the picnic. It’s a good time to see and talk with people she only sees every once in a while at the grocery store, Kruse said. “We have a great time,” Kruse said. “I never win at bingo, but I have a good time. This is fun.” Tony Rizzo, 77, of Highland Heights, and his wife, Dottie, have been coming to the picnic for almost 10 years. They arrived at the picnic at 9 a.m., three hours early, with a deck of cards and they didn’t get to play because they just talked to all the other people there early, Tony said. “We look forward to it every year, we wouldn’t miss it,” he said. It’s a chance to see friends, and it’s a well planned event with good drinks and food at a reasonable price, Tony said. To match this year’s picnic theme “River Cruisin’” Tony and Dottie Rizzo dressed in captain’s hat borrowed from their son who works for BB Riverboats. “There are lots of people who have captain’s hats on around today,” said Naguanda Deaton, the human resources director for Campbell County Fiscal Court, and co-organizer of the event along with Diane Bertke, the county’s treasurer. One woman and man have showed up with complete riverboat gambler outfits on, Deaton said. People don’t have to show up in costume, but many of them do, she said. “It’s an event that they wait for all year, and they come back and they see people that they might have met last year,” Deaton said.

How do I know I’m making the right decision? stood as b e i n g ultra-cautious or a nambyp a m b y afraid to take risks. P r u Father Lou dence has Guntzelman been valPerspectives ued for a long time – prized in the Hellenistic and Roman cultures, as well as in Chinese Confucianism. St. Thomas Aquinas calls prudence the virtue that enables us to do the right thing at the right time. It’s impossible, but who wouldn’t like to be able to do that? That’s because life is complex, relationships require many sensitive decisions, raising children is fraught with balancing love and discipline, and in legal and business decisions the mental dexterity required is mind-boggling. It is not easy to always know what to do. Prudence doesn’t demand we be infallible, but that we put forth effort. Imprudence complicates lives and brings misery to our door. What are some factors to help us become more prudent in our decisions? 1) Be inquisitive enough to gather all the facts and various sides of the issue involved. Half-truths leave us half-informed. 2) Know ourselves well. Some of our decisions are imprudent because we don’t

It would be nice if we could do this with ease all our lives. realize how often we decide matters based only on our emotions and not on the facts. We must know when to trust our thoughts and emotions and when not to. 3) Do some “damn good thinking.” Reason logically, be honest, weigh solid moral principles and what is genuinely good for our self as well as others involved. One theologian described prudence as “the vigilant eye of love.” 4) Our greatest enemies are apathy, fear and selfishness. Apathy leads us to avoid decisions we personally need to make with the attitude of, “Who cares? Let somebody else decide.” Fear brings extreme caution, timidity in making decisions, or taking an unreasonable amount of time to make them. It can also lead us to dread displeasing others – so we conform to what others think is to be decided. Selfishness and pride can delude our minds into thinking, “I have all the answers so why take the time to think deeply or discuss it with others?” “Why consider in my conscience what God might want?” 5) If necessary, be open to seek advice from someone competent whose wis-

have greater confidence in the validity of our reasoning. Today many people seem to decide, even about important issues, on the basis of minimal information, few values, and little in-depth thinking. Short slogans and spin experts do

our thinking for us. Bye, bye, prudence! Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

We learn how to walk by doing a lot of stumbling and falling. We learn how to make good choices in life also by stumbling and falling. Eventually we learn how to do it more effectively, but never perfectly. Making choices, great or small, is a constant requisite of living. To sift the gold of understanding from the gravel of impulse is a great endeavor. It would be nice if we could do this with ease all our lives. But our challenges change across the years from youth to old age. And besides, the circumstances are always a little different each time. So we wind up asking ourselves many times over our lives about decisions concerning our relationships, childrearing, business decisions, etc., “How do I know I’m doing the right thing?” What we’re really talking about here is the virtue of prudence. Former Yale University chaplain and senior minister of Riverside Church put it this way: “The first of our four cardinal virtues of the Roman Catholic Church is ‘prudentia,’ which basically means damn good thinking. Christ came to take away our sins, not our minds.” Prudence demands a mental struggle. It involves thinking, reasoning, weighing, understanding – and in general much wisdom. Prudence is seldom referred to today. Perhaps it sounds too much like “prude,” or is misunder-

No-cook banana pudding has great ‘a-peel’ Yesterday I took dinner to a friend who was ill. I wanted to bring a dessert for the family along with the meal but didn’t have a lot of time, so I decided to make banana pudding. Now usually I make the pudding from scratch, like a pastry cream, but that wasn’t going to happen yesterday. So I carried in my nobake version and it was a huge hit. Here’s the recipe for you to try.

Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

My mom’s no-cook best banana puddin’

I put mine in a smaller casserole dish. 4 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 ⁄2 cup sweetened condensed milk (this is half of the 14 oz. can – freeze leftover milk 3.5 oz. package instant vanilla pudding 11⁄2 cups milk 1 tablespoon vanilla 2 cups whipping cream, sweetened to taste*, whipped, and divided or 12 to 16 oz. whipped topping, thawed 3 ripe bananas, sliced About half a box of vanilla wafers
