Extension center adds demonstration kitchen

ALEXANDRIA — Miss Shirley will be smiling down on Robin Smith in her new bakery every day. Smith lovingly placed a portrait of her mother, Shirley Smith, directly across from the bakery’s entrance, over the counter, so that everyone will see it right as they come into Miss Shirley’s Bakery at 7926 Alexandria Pike. The bakery opens at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, and will be open from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. “It’s my lifelong dream.

This is going to be my baby,” said Smith, who also honors her late brother, Steven, in the portrait. Smith has another brother, Patrick, and a sister, Terri, and with her family beside her, she’s ready to start her new venture. “When people come in I want them to be at home, just relax and enjoy,” she said. With a fireplace and comfy chairs in the corner, Smith wants to create a cozy spot for customers to savor doughnuts, cakes, cookies, cupcakes and See SHIRLEY’S, Page A2

There’s no need to lean over a boiling pot to see the action in a cooking class now at the University of Kentucky’s Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service. A ceiling-mounted camera, and two cameras mounted on either side of a kitchen counter top and stove, give people a view of what a cook is doing with their hands without leaving their seats, said Ronda Rex, a family and consumer sciences extension agent. An additional two cameras mounted near the sides of the counter top help project other close-up views onto a television screen the class can watch. The kitchen was created as part of a $2.3 million addition and renovation to the extension center at 3500 Alexandria Pike, Highland Heights. The 4,000square-foot addition to the existing 9,000-square-foot building was part of a 20-year plan the extension service created in 2012. The first cooking class in the kitchen was for Plate It Up Oct. 16, which showed people how to make recipes using Kentucky Proud brand recipes. Rex said she and other exten-

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County Schools have a lot to celebrate this year. Not only did the school system improve its state ranking, it was also listed among the top public high schools in the nation by Newsweek magazine. Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson detailed the district’s achievements in a special presentation during the school board’s October meeting. Wilson said Campbell County Schools is only one of four school districts in Kentucky to

receive the highest assessment classification, Distinguished, this year, and is Northern Kentucky’s fourthhighest ranked school district, just behind Beechwood, Fort Thomas and Walton-Verona. Campbell County Schools’ statewide ranking rose by 7 percentile points, from 86th, and a classification of “proficient” in 2011-2012, to the 93rd percentile and a “distinguished/progressing” classification for 2012-2013, according to the Kentucky Department of Education. “What’s next?” said Wilson.

other scrumptious specialties. She’ll even have homemade dog treats. “I want to do everything as far as desserts go. I want to do it or at least be


able to try to do it anyway,” she said. She’s honed her baking skills at another independent bakery across town for 28 years, and the whole time she’s lived almost right across the street from her new shop. “It’s the best location in Alexandria. I couldn’t be

happier. I feel like this is the best thing that’s happened to me,” she said. “I think she’s going to be a great anchor for this center,” said Barry Jolly, owner of the Jolly Town Center in the former Jeff Wyler building. “A lot of people know her and she’s just a good gal. She knows

how to make a doughnut.” Jolly said he is adding four more retail spaces to the center, which will then have a total of eight or nine spots, depending on tenant needs. Smith intends to add lunches to her menu in December or January, with hearty soups, bread bowls,

specialty breads and other sandwiches. Smith already plans to honor Jolly on her menu, with a sandwich called the Jolly Giant: ham, roast beef, turkey, longhorn cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, mayonnaise and mustard on a glazed doughnut.


the Kentucky Education Reform Act, passed in 1990. “There’s no doubt in my mind that Kentucky schools are better than they were 23 years ago, I don’t have any doubt about that, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Campbell County schools have made tremendous progress in that 23 years,” he said. “I always knew that we had good schools, but we don’t have any problem at all pointing it out and proving it to everybody.” The state report card overall scores were 61.4 last year and 64.4 this year, which means the district exceeded its annual measurable objective, a goal of improving the score to at

least 61.9. Wilson said the district includes two of 30 elementary schools of distinction: Donald Cline and Grant’s Lick, and Campbell County High School was one of 35 high-performing high schools in Kentucky. Campbell County’s graduation rate rose 11 percent since last year, reaching 95.9 percent this year from last year’s 84.9 percent, according to the state report card. “We’re really proud of that progress,” she said. She also noted the district’s increase in advanced placement students, exams and scores. She said that in the 2010-2011 school year, Campbell County had 140

students in advanced classes, a number which increased to 403 in 20112012 and again rose to 504 in 2012-2013. The number of exams taken increased almost four-fold during the same time span, going from 214 exams in 20102011 to 795 in 2012-2013. On those tests, she said students also received higher scores, with 68 students reaching above-average scores in 2010-2011 to 221 achieving the top scores in 2012-2013. Wilson said the increase in ACT results, rising from an average score of 18.2 in 2008 to an average score of 20.7 in 2013 was an “outstanding improvement.”

“We’re kind of thinking world recognition here.” “When you graduate from Campbell County High School you know that you’re prepared to go out there, whether it’s college or whether it’s in the workforce,” said board of educaton chairman Janis Winbigler. “We laughed when you said world recognition, but we very well may be headed there because we’re preparing all students and we’re looking at all areas.” Board member Rich Mason said many improvements came from

said. The next session of the class will start in February. The class is for children ages 6-8 and their mom, dad, grandparent or guardian, Rex said. The point of the class is to help young children learn how to help their parents make simple meals and work together in the kitchen – even if a person has limited cooking skills. “They actually go out

and garden and grow their food, their vegetables and fruits, and we use that throughout the eightmonth class and we make yummy recipes,” Rex said. Rhonda Griffith of Alexandria brought her 12year-old granddaughter Alexandra Reynolds to

the Plate It Up session, and attended the Mommy and Me cooking class this year, and the new kitchen is an improvement. People used to crowd around the cook in an attempt to see at cooking classes. Now the cameras made it easier to see, Griffith said.

Campbell County wooing logistics company By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County has offered a 40 percent payroll tax incentive in a bid to bring XPO Logistics Inc. with 175 jobs to Newport. If XPO moves to Newport, the company will be the fifth company in the Campbell County Jobs Development Program that began in October 2011. The county’s incentive to companies to expand, or open an office, rather than relocate in the county is a 40 percent payroll refund for 10 years for each job created. Lucy Peterson, a spokeswoman for XPO Logistics, said she can

confirm Newport is one of a number of locations in the Midwest the company is considerHorine ing. “A final decision has not been made,” Peterson said. Campbell County is offering the payroll tax incentive for 88 of the 175 XPO jobs, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The 88 jobs are expected to be filled by people living outside of Kentucky. The remainder of the 175 jobs have already been accepted into a state

incentive program because the jobs will be filled by Kentucky residents, Horine said. “We’re hoping the company makes a final determination that they’re going to come here sometime in November,” he said. Not counting the potential XPO jobs, the county’s jobs development program has been credited with helping to create at least160 jobs, Horine said. The county’s estimate is conservative, and there is a good chance of more than 160 jobs being created through the end of this year, he said. The county will know the exact number of jobs created since the start of the program

2Cellos joining Ky. Symphony By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — For the second time in less than a year, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has scored an international first – another United States orchestral debut of an internationally known duo. Award-winning and classically-trained Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2Cellos, will perform with the KSO 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion, 642 Mt. Zion Road, Florence. KSO music director James Cassidy said the duo is “very hot internationally.”

According to the 2Cellos website, the pair achieved success “taking the cello to a new level and breaking the boundaries between different genres of music.” Their cello version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” went viral and lead to a record deal and an invitation to join Elton John’s worldwide tour. Since then, 2Cellos has appeared on shows including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” The duo was also the first instrumental act to perform on “Glee.” “Being the first orchestra in America to showcase the incredible talents of these perform-

ers, who have taken musical crossover or ‘genre bending’ to new heights, is a real coup,” Cassidy said in an announcement. This will be one of 19 concert stops on the pair’s three-week United States tour and the only concert with an orchestra. In a phone conversation, Cassidy said the orchestra will play some classical pieces with the pair before “we just turn the stage over.” It’s much like getting two shows, he said. Tickets are $24, $32 and $40 with 50 percent off for children ages 6-18. Tickets are available at the door, online at or by calling 859-431-6216.

They are in the Cold Spring Business Park off of U.S. 27 at Ripple Creek Drive. The third and fourth companies into the program, P.L.

Alternatives to juvenile lockup sought Campbell Co. launches program to deal with ‘status offenders’

Tuesday to discuss a pilot program to find alternatives. It is one of only three such programs in the state. “Kentucky has not had the best grade in the world ... when it comes to detaining juveniles,” Campbell District Judge Karen Thomas said. “We are doing a lot better, but we are still not where we need to be.” Keith Bales, who was tapped to lead the Campbell County program, said officials picked the county, in part, because of Thomas’ longtime commitment to find alternatives to locking up status

Gannett News Services NEWPORT — Kentucky has been notorious for locking up children for incidents that are not illegal if committed by an adult. Campbell County wants to fix that. Officials there – who have struggled with high lockup rates for years – will meet




offenders. They are kids who, if adults, would not be considered criminals. Their offenses are usually behavioral or mental health issues, or acts like truancy and substance abuse. Ohio has similar programs in Cuyahoga, Franklin, Lucas, Montgomery and Summit counties, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a Maryland-based charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged youth. The foundation approached Kentucky officials and offered technical assistance and resources to help develop the alternatives, said Thomas. In exchange, Kentucky agreed to hire three coordinators to run the pilot programs, called the Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative. The other two pilots are in Louisville and Lexington. “Oftentimes there is a mindset that getting tough

on crime is the solution,” Bales said. “It is the ‘scared straight’ mindset. Research shows the opposite. The more you can work with kids in a community-based setting, the chances are better they will not end up in the adult system.” The first step will be for foundation employees to analyze Campbell County’s juvenile justice system, Thomas said. The foundation has not started collecting that data. Thomas said she hopes to see intervention options so status offenders are never brought to the regional juvenile detention center in Newport. Chil-

will be to find funding for the alternative programs. The state Department of Juvenile Justice has money for such alternatives, but it’s only available for children who are already locked up. Sometimes a child can be in a detention center for two weeks before they can be placed in an alternative program. “That’s a problem,” Thomas said. “They are already in there. That is what you are trying to stop. You don’t want them in the door.” Some proposed alternatives include putting children on ankle monitors, placing them at a shelter for homeless children or providing after-school care. The idea is the state will eventually be able to fund more alternative programs as it locks up fewer children. The cost to detain a juvenile is about $125 per day, but it can be as high as $164 if the child has special needs, according to state officials. “The bottom line is that the majority of individuals in any criminal justice system will ultimately be out in the community,” Bales said. “It is in our best interest to use research-based practices in order to help them be productive citizens.

dren brought in for minor infractions such as skipping school can sometimes find themselves detained with children who have committed violent crimes – even murder. “Studies are pretty clear ... that once you get a kid into the system, they never leave it,” she said. “It is very difficult to break out of that mold.” Thomas said it makes sense because once a child is in the juvenile court system their life is under a microscope. The child ends up getting punished by a judge for behavior that a parent would normally handle. One of the challenges for the pilot’s operators

Brossart edges Camels again in postseason By Adam Turer

For the second straight year, Bishop Brossart High School’s girls’ soccer team captured the 37th District and 10th Region championship. For the second straight year, the Mustangs defeated Campbell County High School in each championship match. The Camels finished their season with a1-0 loss to the ‘Stangs on Oct. 26 at Harrison County. Bishop Brossart advanced to the Sweet 16 in the state, where it drew defending state champion Lexington Tates Creek in the first round of the state tournament. That match was played on Oct. 29, after Recorder deadlines. “We hope that it sets a standard of expectation,” said Brossart head coach Brad Gough of winning consecutive regional titles. “Winning a regional title is not an easy task no matter where you play, but we feel that we have the quality in our program to do so more often than not.” The Mustangs entered the state tournament after dominating the competition for over a month. Bishop Brossart won nine straight matches, all of them shutouts. The last time the team allowed a goal was also the last time it lost, losing to Newport Central Catholic, 1-0, on Sept. 18. Led by senior goalkeeper Sarah Futscher, the ‘Stangs allowed just nine goals in their first 20 matches, posting 14

shutouts. Five of the goals allowed came in two of the first three matches of the season. Bishop Brossart entered the contest with Tates Creek at 17-3. Last year’s state tournament experience showed Brossart that it is one of the top programs in the state. “We learned that we belong at this stage of the tournament,” said Gough. “This is where we deserve to be and we hope that we can prove we deserve to go further.” Campbell County finished the season with a mark of 15-6-2, setting a record for most wins in a season in program history. The record-setting season was even more impressive considering the level of competition the Camels faced this year. Playing some of the top teams in the state in the early season Bluegrass Cup hosted by Oldham County helped prepare the Camels for tough local competition. Starting with its final two matches in the Bluegrass Cup on Aug. 24, the Camels reeled off a stretch of 9-0-1 soccer, before losing in a regular season shootout to Brossart on Sept. 25. “We exceeded my expectations in overall record with the most wins in school history against the toughest schedule we have ever had that included five of the sweet 16 teams,” said Campbell County head coach Dave Morris. Brossart has now defeated Campbell County in six straight matches over the past two seaSee GIRLS, Page A9

NEWPORT — Alyssa Maier didn’t want to lose her final district championship match and home game to a fierce rival. Maier and the rest of the Newport Central Catholic High School volleyball team made sure that didn’t happen, sweeping rival Highlands 25-6, 25-19, 25-17 Oct. 23 in the 36th District championship match. The tourney was played at NewCath. “It feels amazing,” Maier said. “We worked so hard for it. I’m just happy everything came out how we planned it. We worked as a team and accomplished what we have been working for all season.” Maier, a senior setter, posted 26 assists, three kills and three blocks and was tournament most valuable player. Freshman Rachel McDonald had 10 kills and five digs. Junior Keyaira Lankheit had seven kills and four blocks. Senior Nikki Kiernan had four kills and two blocks, and senior Madison Volk recorded six digs. Lankheit and McDonald were also all-tourney picks. The Thoroughbreds avenged a loss to the Bluebirds in last year’s district final. “I thought we played well,” said head coach Vicki Fleissner. “We came out and played hard. Last year’s loss to them in the district finals was still in the back of our minds. We wanted to come out and make a statement and I think we did, then we stepped back a little bit like we shouldn’t but we were able to piece it together and

I’m really proud of everyone. We click together, we know everyone’s next move. We feel so comfortable togethSee VOLLEY, Page A9

Clippers rank Top 50 nationally Community Recorder

The Northern Kentucky Clippers have made team history by breaking into the top 50 in the national rankings. At the end of the winter short-course season in April, the Clippers ranked 41st and as the end of the long-course season nears, they rank 29th. This is the first time the Clippers have scored more than 200,000 points and broken into the top 50, according to USA Swimming. The Clippers are one of only five teams scoring this high with fewer than 220 swimmers on the roster. In

Every match has been closely contested, which is to be expected when these rivals square off. “Campbell County always has a quality team that is willing to fight it out until the end,” Gough said. “That, coupled with the fact that so many of the girls know each other and have personal relationships, makes everyone play tightly and will make it tough for either team to really beat the other handily.” The ‘Stangs’ style of play, predicated on possession and tempo control, has proved to be frustrating for the Camels’ more aggressive offen-

She gets the ball to our hitters,” Fleissner said. “Rachel has been consistent like that all year as a freshman, a lot to look forward to the next three years.

The Camels managed just seven shots on goal in the 10th Region final. “We lost to an excellent team in Brossart,” said Morris. “We did our best playing hard to the last moment, so I have no regrets. I am very proud of what the team accomplished.” The eight seniors on the ‘Stangs roster benefited from last year’s state tournament experience. Many of the girls were key contributors as underclassmen and expected to return to the Sweet 16 this season. Now, they are eager to take the next step. “Last year’s seniors did a really good job of bringing along the younger players and passing on their experience,” said Gough. “I really expected us to be even more suc-

cessful this year because our current seniors have the experience from last year added into all of the talent that they already possessed.” If the ‘Stangs can upset Tates Creek (19-4-3) at home on Oct. 29, they will face the winner of Letcher County Central-Lawrence County on Nov. 2 at Lafayette.

State needs to start picking the low hanging job fruit first chose not to change; now they’re choosing to do business with the people who did. When this happens (and when it does, not many people know about it), workers here lose. Rob Hudson With prevailing wages, our federal and COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST state governments COLUMNIST mandate high wages on most governmentfunded infrastructure projects. Projects cost more (estimates range from 10 percent to 30 percent) and fewer can be funded, which of course means we have fewer people working on construction projects. Our desire to provide an opportunity for a new construction worker should be as strong as the desire to pay some people more, but that’s not how it went “back in the day.” Prevailing wages started in 1931 under Herbert Hoover, a president not exactly known for visionary leadership. It’s not like we haven’t thought before about making it right. In the 1970s, the U.S. Government Accountability Office published a prevailing wage report suggesting that prevailing

wages should be repealed because they slow us down. On right to work, the issue would be hard to miss. If you look at a map of the many states which have already made the change, we’re beginning to look like an island unto ourselves. Advanced manufacturing companies have seen this map. Other states revel in using it against us. Only one thing prevents us from making these changes. Unions don’t agree with them. I respect their opinions, but they represent fewer than 7 percent of company workers. Noisy protests and political donations aside, a better choice would be to help the unemployed and the other 93 percent of workers. It’s hard to operate in a political fog, but it can be done. Come closer. Can you see the low hanging job fruit for unemployed workers who want a chance to succeed? It’s been right there, in front of our faces, all along. Let’s reach through the fog and pick it for them. Rob Hudson is an attorney and partner with Frost Brown Todd LLC in Florence and the author of a business and political book “A Better Tomorrow.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Libraries have support

Either Ken Moellman is naive or he thinks all Campbell Countians were born yesterday regarding how much we value our libraries. His continuous complaints about the library board and our library system show a deep suspicion perhaps bordering paranoia with its obvious aim to cripple a cultural asset. If Ken hasn’t gotten the message by now, libraries are more than repositories



of published information. They provide community centers where people can come together to collect and exchange information that they may not have access to otherwise. So don’t attack our kids’ LEGO contests. Ken makes it appear that he and his associates have been overly kind and considerate toward the library board; and in return have been unfairly rebuffed. Well just as much as their legal beagles have tenaciously pursued the library board,

When we begin talking about various laws, even as an attorney, my eyes can glaze over. However, I perk up when we talk about honorable common ground, such as jobs for working families. Prevailing wage reform and right to work occupy this ground. Right to work simply means an employee may decide whether or not to pay money to a union. Michigan economist Mark Perry crunched the numbers and found that right to work states recently created four times as many new jobs as non right to work states. Economic development experts at Tri-Ed, working in the trenches, know we’ve lost out on opportunities. Unless and until states stop competing with one another, we must accept this economic reality. Advanced manufacturers with better paying jobs, who tend to like right to work, decide where they will do business, not us. I represent a client which will expand into Tennessee or Indiana because these neighboring states have right to work laws. We


the board has properly and understandably responded like a mother bear or hockey mom by protecting a valued and long-standing institution. We’re tired of Ken’s theatrics. Campbell County has a great library system with a lot of people supporting it. I invite him and his buddies to help Alexandria (Ken’s neighborhood) get a branch – long overdue.

Can you smell it in the air? Can you see it on the trees? Do you feel it when you walk out of the door in the morning? Harvest time is certainly here. I realize that the vast majority of us do not consider ourselves farmers, therefore when we think of the word harvest, the word moon may come to mind before the word labor. Yet if we Julie House were to apply the COMMUNITY principles of what a RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST harvest really means, we might come to realize if we labor today, a beautiful harvest awaits tomorrow. A true harvest is a time to enjoy the fruits of all your labor. A time to look back on all your hard work, thank God for what He has provided, and spend time resting in Him and begin to thank Him for His plans for you and your family in the coming months. In our schooling this year we are studying biblical feasts. The Jewish people understand principles behind the word harvest. The new year for the Jewish people actually begins in the fall. Although we follow a solar calendar, the Jews still follow the lunar calendar and Rosh Hashanah, (this year the celebration began on Sept. 4,) announces their new year, and is a time set aside for reflection and preparation. How special to begin a new year as you are “feasting” on all the ways God has supplied for you and your family. To reflect on the passing year, repent, and make a commitment to live a better life, a life more fully dedicated to God and His will for you and your family. During our study of Rosh Hashanah it was recommended that we simulate as many of the activities of the feast as were doable for our family. When planning one meal and the activities surrounding it seemed overwhelming, it was clear to me that our priorities have become a little jaded over the years. When praying more than a short blessing over the food felt awkward and uncomfortable, and remaining at the dinner table for more than 10 minutes seemed like more than a chore than an event, I realized the “world” had even invaded our dinner table. It’s going to take some work to transform our family. But that’s OK. I am reminded by Paul that my work is never in vain. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 I am ready for a harvest aren’t you? Ready to cozy up with God’s promises, surround myself with those I love and thank God for all He has done for me, and all that He plans to do in the future. I think I can do that for a few months, how about you? Julie House is a former resident of Campbell County.

Stir-fry uses last of summer’s bell peppers

As I look out my office window, I can see the vegetable garden and the pumpkin patch next to it. The garden is completely finished, not a veggie to be seen. I did pick one last big bunch of zinnias, marigolds and cosmos from the cutting flower row for the kitchen table and was able to save seeds for next year. We still have a good amount of bell peppers, which I Rita used for Heikenfeld one of my RITA’S KITCHEN favorite chicken stir-fries.

Sweet and spicy chicken and veggie stir-fry Amazingly, exotic items like sambal oelek and fish sauce used to be hard to find. Now just about every grocery store carries these. Sambal olelek is a spicy condiment found in the international aisle. Ditto with the fish sauce. I usually stir in more sambal oelek after the stirfry is done. Feel free to use your favorite vegetables in here. 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite size pieces and set aside 12 oz. bag fresh stir-fry vegetables or 8 oz. sugar snap peas 1 red bell pepper, sliced 1 ⁄2 medium red onion, sliced

Sauce Combine and set aside:

3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon sambal oelek 1 tablespoon sesame oil 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cornstarch

For garnish Sliced green onions Dry roasted peanuts

Film a pan with oil and stir-fry chicken several minutes until golden brown and done. Don’t overcook. Remove and set aside. Add a bit more oil and stir-fry veggies for several minutes until crisp tender. Stir in brown sugar mixture; cook a minute until thickened. Stir in chicken and toss to coat. Serve with sesame rice. Serves 3-4.

Dinner in a dash: Ravioli with sautéed butternut squash and thyme I love butternut squash. It’s chock full of phytonutrients and antioxidants and is delicious in both sweet and savory dishes. Butternut squash is a bear to try to cut through and peel. What I like to do is poke it all over with a fork, microwave it on high for just a few minutes, use mitts to pull it out (it will be

The skin will have softened enough for you to slice through it without using a machete. ⁄2 medium butternut squash (about 1 pound), peeled and diced into 1⁄2-inch pieces Salt and pepper to taste 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or up to 1 teaspoon dried thyme (start with 1⁄2 teaspoon and go from there) 16 oz. fresh or frozen cheese ravioli Parmesan cheese for garnish 1

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Chicken safety: To wash or not. Here’s my take on it: Do not wash chicken. You’ll be splashing more bacteria over the surface of the sink, counter and yourself. No need to worry about bacteria in chicken when it’s cooked to a safe degree. The USDA says to cook a whole chicken to 165 degrees; parts to 165 degrees and ground to 165 degrees. Your visual here is to have the juices run clear

Safely seasoning raw chicken

Before handling the chicken, mix the seasonings in a little bowl. Discard the leftover seasoning.

Partnership offers rides in N.Ky. Three years ago, ITNGreaterCincinnati (ITNGC) was brought to Cincinnati by the Deaconess Associations Foundation and the Vision Coalition to provide transportation to people over 60 and visually impaired adults. Since that first ride in May 2010, ITNGC has provided almost 20,000 rides in Cincinnati and expanded ser-

vice to Northern Kentucky. ITNGC is now offering a “go where you want to go, when you want to go” transportation alternative to residents in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties who live, work or play within the Interstatew 275 loop in Ohio and Kentucky. Transportation is the biggest need for seniors

and those with visual impairments in Northern Kentucky as determined by several needs assessment studies. ITNGC’s services have no restrictions. Riders can go anyplace, at any time of day for any purpose. Although 25 percent of the rides given are for medical appointments, consumer, recreation, and employment/volunteer-

ing are among the top five ride purpose groups for rides provided by ITNGC. About 70 percent of the rides are provided by bonded and insured volunteers with the remaining 30 percetn of rides provided by paid drivers. People who use the service become dues paying members at a nominal fee and open per-

sonal transportation accounts to pay for their rides, but potential members should not be discouraged by this. Those interested in applying for the membership should call Kathy at 859-441-8111 for more information or visit the website to fill out an application, www.ITN

Homeless shelter needs $1.5 million for new home Gannett News Service

The only homeless shelter in Northern Kentucky needs to raise more than $1 million for a new home. The Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky, which housed 439 people last year, is losing its home after Kenton County sold its current building to Community and Technical College as part the college’s urban campus expansion in Covington. The shelter is launching a $1.5 million capital campaign to fund its relocation by July of next year, according Rachael Winters, shelter director. “The Shelter Board is diligently working with governmental leaders from Kenton County, the city of Covington and business leaders, including the 2013 Leadership Class of Northern Kentucky in search of a new location and facility,” John Carey, president of shelter’s board of directors said in a release. Of the $1.5 million, $1 million is to cover the cost of acquiring a facility, renovating it and securing a long-term lease. The $500,000 will include $200,000 for part-time shelter staff and $300,000 to seed an endowment, he said. The shelter has operated in a one-story 5,000 square foot building at 634 Scott Boulevard since 2008. The shelter leased the building from the county for $1 at year.. The Enquirer reported in December, the shelter’s search for a new home is the result of Gateway’s $81.5 million expansion in Covington. The community and technical college is buying about nine properties in the heart of the city's business district, including shelter building. When the shelter moves, it will need at least 10,000 square feet, nearly double the current space, and it must be big enough to shelter 90 adults with two large rooms for men and women and two smaller rooms for people who need to be isolated because of illness or other reasons, Carey said in December. The shelter also needs to be on a bus line within two miles of the majority of social services. The shelter’s $150,000 operating budget comes from mostly private donations.

Children’s center honors Hartman as ‘champion’ Furniture Fair’s advertising front man Ed Hartman may have thought it was a routine Tuesday morning meeting ... that is, until his wife, Betty, walked into the conference room at the company’s headquarters in Fairfield. Betty joined Vickie Henderson, executive director of The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center, who presented Hartman with its Champions for Children award. The inner-offices of Furniture Fair and managers connived to keep the award presentation a secret from Hartman, a well-known face in Greater Cincinnati and the director of marketing for the family-run furniture store for nearly 25 years. “It was a total surprise; how my wife kept it from me I do not know,” Hartman said. “But being affiliated with the (Northern Kentucky) Children’s Advocacy Center rounds out

what I strongly believe that no children should have to shed a tear for any reason. It’s quite an honor and hopefully personifies what I stand for and my personal dedication to children.” The Champions for Children award recognizes individuals and corporations who demonstrate true passion, ongoing commitment and dedication for the organization and its mission to keep children of abuse safe in Northern Kentucky, Henderson said. “Ed is truly a champion for the children and families we serve,” she said. “He has helped us make made enormous differences to people who really need help and has been with us since we started in 1987.” Henderson explained that Hartman was a “tremendous supporter” of the St. Luke Foundation which sustained the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center

Ed Hartman receives the Champions for Children award from the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center. Vickie Henderson, left, executive director of the NKYCAC, surprised Hartman with the award on Oct. 1 at the corporate offices of Furniture Fair in Fairfield, and was joined by his wife, Betty Hartman for the special presentation.PROVIDED

prior to its separation from St. Luke Hospital. Since that separation in 2009, Hartman has served as the emcee and auctioneer for the center’s annual fundraising gala. “Ed has generously provided his time and talent as our celebrity emcee and live auctioneer and his presence has made our gala one of the ‘do not

miss’ fundraising events,” Henderson said. Hartman will be serving as the emcee for its next gala, Masquerade Madness, on Saturday, March 1, at the Airport Marriott in Hebron. All

proceeds go toward supporting the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center and its mission. “Our No. 1 goal is to keep children safe and provide support and services to children and their families in an abuse crisis,” Henderson said. Last year, the children’s advocacy center served nearly 750 children in a coordinated community response to child abuse. The Center is the only Children’s Advocacy Center in Northern Kentucky and has been recognized as a national center of excellence by the National Children’s Alliance. “I think we all have to realize these children are so vulnerable to treatment that no one deserves,” Hartman said. “Working with the NKYCAC gives me an opportu-

nity to express myself and support their cause. I try to do as much as I can for children in the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.” “Ed embodies what it means to care for children in our community. He is dedicated to ensuring that children are protected and that no child stands alone when they are a victim of physical or sexual abuse or have witnessed a violent crime,” Henderson said. “It is through heroes like Ed that we are able to do the work we do every day to keep children safe.” “No child should have to cry,” Hartman said. More information on the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center can be found at or calling the CAC at 859-4423200.

Airport passenger and cargo traffic have risen The number of local passengers using Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) have been up for six straight months, a key indicator of increasingly positive momentum for the region’s largest commercial airport. The airport also has experienced year-over-year increases in its cargo traffic, as well as concession and parking revenues. For the sixth consecutive month, CVG has experienced year-over-year growth in its origin, or local, passengers. Origin passengers in the month of July 2013 increased 6 percent while in August 2013 traffic increased approximately 5 percent compared to origin passengers in the prior year. Overall, year-to-date, origin traffic is 2.4 percent higher compared to 2012.

“All of the passenger, cargo and revenue metrics are moving in the right direction and showing a very positive story of reinvention at CVG,” said James Huff, chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board. At the height of the airport’s passenger volume in 2005, approximately 75 percent of its passengers were connecting through the airport on their way to another destination, with only 25 percent percent of its passengers originating from CVG. After the merger between Delta and Northwest airlines and flights decreased, the profile of the CVG passenger changed. In 2012, approximately 70 percent were local travelers coming through CVG’s front door, with connecting passengers accounting for 30 percent of the traffic. The per-

centage of local passengers is expected to increase through 2013. “We have invested in serving the local traveling public and those investments are paying off,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of CVG. “We’ve placed an emphasis on diversifying our carriers, our routes and our fares and it has made our airport very appealing to the region’s travelers. The airport’s long-term success is directly connected to growing our local passenger base.” CVG has also experienced growth in its cargo traffic. Buoyed by DHL’s growing presence at the airport, cargo increased approximately 10 percent year-over-year through August 2013. The increase in cargo helps CVG keep its landing fees stable.

Question: Why are there so many ladybugs and other larger brownish-gray bugs coming into my house this year? How can I stop their invasion into my home? Answer: The larger bugs are probably the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), a new pest of Mike houseKlahr holds, garHORTICULTURE dens and CONCERNS orchards. The BMSB, native to China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan, was first collected in Allentown, Penn., in 1998. Today, it is an agricultural pest as well as a household nuisance in about two dozen states, including Kentucky, arriving in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties just last year. These bugs have the same characteristic shield-shaped stink bug body found on the common green or brown stink bugs often found in gardens. The adults (with wings) are approximately 5 ⁄8-inch long with a mottled brown-gray body. The next to last (fourth) segment of each antenna has a white band. Edges of the abdominal segments that extend laterally from under the wings are alternatively banded with black and white. The underside of the body is white to light

gray with gray or black markings, and the legs are brown with faint white bands. The BMSB ultimately can pose problems for all Kentuckians, similar to that of the multicolored (orange and black) Asian lady beetle, or Halloween Beetle, a familiar fall sight in many homes and buildings. Adults are attracted to homes and structures in the fall as they move to protected overwintering sites. Large numbers may enter through cracks and crevices. These insects produce a stain and unpleasant order when smashed. They will leave protected sites in the spring to resume their life cycle, feeding on the sap of a wide range of plants including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, and some field crops. Significant fruit and vegetable losses to the insect have been reported. Vacuuming up the bugs inside the home is the best solution once they have entered. Me-

chanical exclusion is the best method to keep stink bugs from coming into the home. Cracks around windows, doors, siding, utility pipes, behind chimneys, and underneath the wood fascia and other openings should be sealed with good quality silicone or silicone-latex caulk. Damaged screens on doors and windows should be repaired or replaced. Exterior applications of insecticides, may offer some minor relief from infestations where the task of completely sealing the exterior is difficult or impossible. Homeowner products containing the active ingredients deltamethrin, cyfluthrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, cypermethrin, or permethrin are options for use outside the house. They should be applied in the fall as the bugs begin to congregate. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture. Reach him at 859-586-6101 or by email at
