Log cabin condemned as unsafe

By Chris Mayhew

New week, new opportunities

The Campbell County Senior and Wellness Center in Highland Heights is planning a new weekly “Healthy Mondays” program scheduled to start in January with the assistance of a class of Northern Kentucky University students. Some ideas already being considered include quitting smoking on Monday, walking a mile on Monday, and cutting sweets on Monday. NEWS, A5

Alexandria officials have condemned a vacant log cabin built before 1883 and recommended it be demolished. “This is a safety issue,” said Mayor Dan McGinley. The building is standing open, and the city doesn’t want children or a vagrant going inside where they could have a serious problem, McGinley said. Located at 8280 East Main St., the cabin is owned by Mid-Town Center, Inc., which has appealed the city’s decision citing an unlawful search and disputing allegations made by the city’s inspectors. Included in the letter is an objection to the city’s ruling that there is a failure of a load-bearing foundation, and a statement that “sagging

Log cabin details

While the exact age of any log cabin can be difficult to determine, the log cabin is listed in an 1883 atlas map, said Ken Reis, president of the Campbell County Historical and Genealogical Society, and operator of a log cabin museum in Grant’s Lick. There are probably two or three other log cabins within the city limits of Alexandria and probably 200 log cabins in Campbell County, Reis said. But most of the log cabins have been made part of houses over the years and covered up with siding or other materials, he said. The original wood beam construction, often about eight inches thick, is usually not exposed. “A lot of people have a building that has a log cabin in it and don’t even know unless someone points out that the wall is too thick,” Reis said. Most people stopped living in log cabins, or covered them up after the Civil War because it was unfashionable, he said.

floors do not indicate a failure of the floor joist system.” Mid-Town Center is owned by Dan J. Seibert of Cold Spring and Paul Seibert of Fort Mitchell. Attorney Richard A. Woeste, filed the appeal Oct. 19 after a building inspector code enforcement officer condemned the log cabin Sept. 28. “I know we’re in discussion with the city to try to resolve the matter,” Woeste said. Woeste said it would be improper to comment further while the case is ongoing. An appeal hearing has been set at the city building, 8236 W. Main St., at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3. The hearing was set by the city’s Property Maintenance Board of Appeals, which met for the first time Thursday, Oct. 29 since its authority was legally established by the city in 2002 when council adopted the International Property

Maintenance Code. Board members, appointed by the mayor, were sworn-in during the Oct. 29 special meeting. The members include Bob Simon, a general contractor, who will serve as the chairman and Bernie Macke, a construction manager for Maple Street Homes, who said he has a background in construction for 35 years. “I’ve often wondered what’s been going on with that thing anyhow,” said Simon before the board decided the date for the Nov. 3 hearing. The hearing is required to be 20 days after receipt of the property owners’ Oct. 19 appeal letter. The third board member, Richard W. Carr, a civil engineer certified in Kentucky, recused himself from hearing the log cabin case because of a pre-existing relationship with Dan Seibert, one of the

property’s owners. The mayor will appoint an alternate to the board to hear the appeal. The owners of the property are under an order not to alter it unless approved by a structural engineer, said city attorney Mike Duncan. The board can decide to uphold the city’s decision, modify it and order that repairs be made, or overturn the decision, Duncan said. The property owners will also have the right to legally appeal the decision in Circuit Court, he said. Duncan said at the Oct. 29 meeting that it would be in the best interest for the appeals board to make a decision as soon as possible after the hearing. “This ruling adversely affects their property rights,” Duncan said.

When it comes to animal complaints in Alexandria, police and other city workers are the people handling the issue. Working with other city employees like maintenance workers, Alexandria police take care of complaints about aggressive animals, animals off-leash and loose, and excessive barking. Council has previously entertained the idea of contracting with an animal control officer, but the police department typically responds to fewer than four complaints a week, said Police Chief Mike Ward. “We don’t have as great a problem as some other places do,” Ward said. Alexandria isn’t unique, the unincorporated area of Campbell County, Highland Heights and Wilder do not have animal control officers, said Terri Baker, the animal control officer for eight Campbell County cities. In Newport, code enforcement officers handle animal complaints, she said. Baker serves as animal control for Bellevue, Dayton, Cold Spring, Woodlawn, Melbourne, Silver Grove, Southgate and Fort Thomas. Dealing with the animals is just a small hassle for police, Ward said. “If somebody has them corralled they can take them down to the pound,” he said. “Normally what we do is we try to find out who the dog’s owner is and cite them for allowing the dog to run at large.”

Often, people will take the animals to the county shelter themselves, and the city will provide a crate to do so, Ward said. There hasn’t been any issue of liability of someone being bitten, he said. It’s very rare to have an out-of-control, aggressive animal, Ward said. “If the animal is aggressive in any way shape or form we’ll put the animal down,” Ward said. What’s more common is police killing a wild animal that’s sick or injured, he said. If someone can’t transport the animal, it can be brought to the city’s maintenance garage where there is a cage to keep them overnight. Public works employees will transport animals, but not police, he said. “You can’t put a mangy sick animal in the back of a car where you’re going to put a person,” Ward said. The city issued 23 citations, typically for an animal running at large or a barking dog, in all of 2008, Ward said. And so far in 2009 there have been 16 citations issued. Police use the department’s neighborhood focus program to solve an issue with an animal before it becomes a problem by working it out between neighbors, he said. Typically, for the first time, there is a warning to the animal’s owner, and then it’s a $50 minimum fine. “Sometimes it does come to a fine, especially if we’re getting a continuous call from same house, or if animal is aggressive, that usually triggers an immediate citation,” Ward said.

Republican primary for judge-executive

By Chris Mayhew

In a campaign pitting two Republicans against each other, Kevin Sell of Alexandria is challenging to unseat incumbent Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery of Fort Thomas in 2010. Before meeting any potential Democrat challengers, Sell and Pendery will meet in a May 2010 primary. Sell, 45, a vice president of United Group Services, resigned in October as the

Pendery Sell chairman of the Fourth Congressional District Republican Party to start his campaign for the top position in county leadership. Pendery, who owns a family-owned insurance business, is seeking a fourth four-year term as judge-

executive. Sell said knowing he is up against an entrenched opponent, he wants to take the county in a new direction. “Clearly what I want to do is spend less, tax less, and develop an industrial base that’s been left alone for far too long,” he said. The county needs to push more aggressively for pension reform, be more proactive in attracting businesses by not taking allowable 4-percent property tax increases, and consolidate services possibly starting with the sheriff and county police department. “I think consolidation is a big issue,” he said. “I would like to do a feasibility of sheriff and county and police.” Campbell County is one

of only four counties still with a county police force, Sell said. Sell said being a vice president gives him the ability to manage a county budget. “Our company is a $44 million a year company, so I understand budgets,” he said. He also wants to keep some regular office hours in the Alexandria courthouse. Pendery said his record of consensus building as part of a bipartisan, regional team, has helped deliver for Campbell County. “We have consolidated services, like dispatch operations, in the interest of efficiency,” Pendery said. “We have managed our way out of problems like an overcrowded jail by using best practices and ideas drawn

from around the country.” There have been hundreds of millions of dollars invested in infrastructure like roads, water and sewer projects including a new sewage treatment plant in Alexandria, education and other public buildings, Pendery said. “I am a member of a larger team that has produced for Campbell County like never before,” he said. Economic development and efficiency moves like consolidation of services will continue to be priorities. But, Pendery declined to discuss what services could be considered in the future so as not to create a constituency against consolidation. Pendery said every year in Frankfort and in Northern Kentucky, pension reform

and state jail spending have topped the list of issues discussed with legislatures. At the moment county services, including calls for police service, are up and the biggest challenge the county is dealing with is belt-tightening to live within its means, he said. When it comes to development, the future looks bright, with the development projects of Ovation in Newport and Manhattan Harbor in Dayton adding up to $2 billion in real estate value if built according to plan in a county that has a total real estate value now of $5 billion, he said. “There’s always going to be competition for a job like this, I accept that, and I’m prepared to defend my record, I’m proud of it,” Pendery said.

BRIEFLY Clarification

The estimated end of year balance for Campbell County Schools for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2009 was a higher amount than was reported in a Nov. 29 article in The Campbell County Recorder about threats from a state lawmaker to take extra end of year funds from school districts. The end of year fund balance for Campbell County School District was approximately $4.589 million, said Mark Vogt, director of finance for the district. End of year fund balances are carried over from fiscal year to fiscal year. School districts are required by state law to maintain at least 2 percent contingency fund for emergencies, which would be about $800,000 for the Campbell County School District.

Fall cleanup days

Three locations will be open for the Campbell County Fall Clean Up from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day Nov. 6-8. Bring unwanted bulk items to either the Campbell County Police Department on Constable Drive in Alexandria, Pendery Park off Ky. 8 in Melbourne, or the county’s transportation department off Race Track Road near A.J. Jolly Park. No liquids, including paint or oil, will be accepted at any

location. The transportation department will be the only location accepting tires, car batteries, scrap metal and propane tanks. Also, because of bed bugs, junk mattresses should be wrapped in plastic, and whether unwrapped mattresses will be accepted will be at the personal discretion of work crews the days of the clean-up. There is a limit of a maximum of four to six tires per person. If you have more tires, call 547-1802 prior to clean-up.

Council member

Mariann G. Dunn of Wilder has been re-appointed by Gov. Steve Beshear to serve as a member of the state’s Consumers’ Advisory Council through Sept. 8, 2012. Dunn is the director of resident services at Madonnna Manor.

Grant for road safety

The Campbell County Police Department has received a $25,000 grant from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to pay for overtime patrols along the AA Highway and U.S. 27. The goal of the overtime is to increase the time officers will patrol to cite for traffic violations, and increase the safety of people traveling on the roads and decrease accidents.

Descendants of the late Peter and Philomena Neltner found their family’s Campbell County homestead farm and fishing lake to be the perfect place to visit for a reunion. More than 265 descendants spanning four generations of the Neltner family went back to their late ancestor’s property where Duck Creek Country Club in Silver Grove is now on a late September Sunday afternoon to reminisce and reconnect. Sunday afternoons were traditionally the day the family all got together on the property to work and socialize at the pay lake, said Terry Neltner, 52, of Cold Spring, a granddaughter of Peter and Philomena Neltner, who had six children. The Neltner’s family farm was also a pay fishing lake for more than 20 years starting in the 1950s after the state took some of the family’s ground to put a

In the 1960s, the state took more of the family’s property, including their house, to build Ky. 1998 (Industrial Road). “I just remember all our times on Sundays,” Terry said. “It was always family day.” There was always a big sit down meal with the entire family, and there was always Rock n’ Roll on the jukebox, especially Elvis, she said. Terry said her grandmother was always trying to give the children an ice cream or soda despite her parents telling her to never ask for anything and watching to see if they did. “Grandma would sit there with a root beer say-

ing anything you want, and dad was just looking at you,” she said. Although the property is vastly different, and the lake at the top of the hill beyond Duck Creek isn’t used much anymore, it was still the perfect place to have the reunion, Terry said. The family has had reunions at other locations during the years, but it wasn’t like going home. So, the family decided to rent out the country club for a day. Many of the family members made special family recipes passed down over the generations including grandma’s oatmeal raisin cookies, Terry said. The reunion was also planned around the 80th birthday of Helen Jones, of

Fort Thomas, Terry’s aunt. “It worked out nice because they were going to throw a party for me anyway,” Jones said. It was a special day to be back on the land where the family’s 13-acre farm was, she said. “My dad grew all the stuff, we didn’t have to buy anything from the grocery,” Jones said. Jones wore a hat with candles sticking out of it in the shape of the cake, as her family gathered around her. She’s one of four surviving siblings of Peter and Philomena Neltner’s six children. “It was great, I saw a lot of my nieces and nephews that I haven’t seen in a while,” Jones said.

Southbank team: Moreland plus Keene By Chris Mayhew

Northern Kentucky’s riverfront economic development group, Southbank Partners, has a new leadership team that packs a leg-

Thomas. In September Southbank hired Jack Moreland, who has a background as an education leader, as the new president; and Dennis Keene, a state representative of Wilder, as economic adviser. Keene, a Democrat, represents the 67th District with a territory including Newport, Dayton, Bellevue, Wilder, Southgate, Woodlawn and a portion of Highland Heights. Keene’s status as a legislator has already been a positive for Southbank by helping schedule a talk in Frankfort in October with the joint senate/house subcommittee that focused on economic development in the state. “We wanted to get on their radar screen and that’s a direct impact of Dennis sort of having a dual role,” Moreland said. They were able to talk to the legislators about Southbank’s role in development and also about the Riverfront Commons project. Southbank is working to push the $50-million Riverfront Commons featuring a multi-use trail proposal along the Ohio River linking existing and planned attractions and housing together. Young professionals and others have moved away from the urban areas to the suburbs for years, and now many are changing their minds with the price of gas and other factors about city living, Moreland said. “We want this whole riverfront to be a destination,” he said. “If you live in Indianapolis we want people to say let’s go spend a whole weekend in Northern Kentucky because there’s lots of attractions and fun things to do here.” Development naturally gravitates to the riverfront, but Southbank’s role is to make sure that it’s the right fit for each member city, he said.

Keene Moreland “The thing about our riverfront, that’s our liquid gold out there,” Moreland said. The Riverfront Commons project needs the support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Moreland said. The first step, a reconnaissance study of the area, has been performed by the Corps, and the next step, a feasibility study, is expected to be complete within 12 to 18 months, he said. But, a grant obtained by Keene and Senate President Pro-Tem Katie Stine, RSouthgate, last year will help Southbank move forward with designing a segment of the trail in Newport where the trail is not under the Corps control, Moreland said. Keene will be at Southbank working every day with developers and others when he’s not in Frankfort, Moreland said. Moreland said other entities have their own elected legislators as advocates in the legislature. Eastern Kentucky University has had great success in getting things done in-part because they have one of their vice-presidents in the legislature, Moreland said. “I think Dennis is valueadded, I don’t see it as a conflict, I see it as something that’s going to be really to our advantage,” Moreland said. Keene said being a legislator isn’t a full-time job, and that he said up front that his goal was to be an asset, not a distraction to Southbank. Knowing more about development in his district, and the riverfront of Covington will only help give him more bullets in his gun as a legislator, Keene said. “It is a part-time job, and we have to have other opportunities to earn a living,” he said.

Senior center starts weekly health kick By Chris Mayhew

Just because it’s Monday will be a good enough reason for some seniors to kick a bad habit or start a healthy routine starting in January with a little encouragement at Campbell County’s senior center. The Campbell County Senior and Wellness Center in Highland Heights is planning a new weekly “Healthy Mondays” program scheduled to start in January with the assistance of a class of Northern Kentucky University students. The program will be voluntary. Some ideas already being considered include quitting smoking on Monday, walking a mile on Monday, and cutting sweets on Monday. “Most of us at one point in time have tried to quit something and failed,” said Marsha Dufeck, center director. If a person only does something for one day, they’ve at least taken the


Wanda Snapp, left, of Fort Thomas, and Mary Beckerich, of Highland Heights, each walk a mile on treadmills during a visit to the Campbell County Senior and Wellness Center in Highland Heights Monday, Nov. 2. first step, and if it doesn’t stick, there’s another chance to start over, she said. “This way, you’ve got 52 Mondays to start fresh,”

Dufeck said. Students from a Physical and Health Education organization and administration class are working on

ideas for how the program will be implemented, said Sarah Ritchie, the wellness center coordinator. The students in the class

are majoring in fields including fitness and wellness and sports business, Ritchie said. The center’s staff will

evaluate the students ideas and see what works at the center, she said. Some of the program will be about goal-setting, and providing opportunities for getting involved including nutrition education, exercise and socialization, Ritchie said. There will also be tips and ideas given each week, and a healthy cookbook for people to try recipes out at home, she said. Mary Beckerich of Highland Heights said she has walked a mile twice a week on the center’s treadmills for about two years as a way to try and stay healthy. Exercise is social too, because you get to meet other people you might not ordinarily meet, Beckerich said. “Don’t be sedentary, you have to get up and move,” she said. For information about the Healthy Mondays program or other health and exercise opportunities available at the center call Sarah Ritchie at 547-3665.

Principal’s science rule: make it fun By Chris Mayhew

Each week, Reiley Elementary School Principal Julie Hubbard dons a scientist lab coat, gets in front of a camera, and with student assistants teaches the entire school an experiment. Hubbard, a former science teacher, teaches the students a science experiment each Friday during a televised student morning news show. “I do things related to the core content,” Hubbard said. After students took last year’s state testing, many said they remembered some of the questions they were tested on were experiments Hubbard had showed them. Making science fun is important, Hubbard said. “It’s important for me to find out a way where they want to pay attention and learn,” she said. For the Oct. 30 experiment, Hubbard and her husband made a homemade machine that fills bub-

bles with vapor from dry ice so students could learn about gases. “So, you get the spooky Halloween effect,” Hubbard said. Nathan Mallery, 8, a first-grade student, said the bubble experiment was “cool” and makes learning science easier. Science test scores are on the rise at Reiley, from 103 in 2007 to 106 in 2008, and 114 in 2009, all on a scale of 120 points. But Hubbard said she’s not taking the credit for the scores. “Our scores in science are on the rise because we have great teachers teaching science,” Hubbard said. “I just get to do a fun experiment once per week. Great teaching and wonderful students is what truly makes our test scores go up.” Hubbard said a student came up with the idea for the science experiments after he saw her perform an experiment during a church vacation Bible school. Some of Hubbard’s in-school experiments have included turning on a light bulb using energy from student’s bodies.


Reiley Elementary School Principal Julie Hubbard drops a dry ice vapor bubble into the glove protected hand of first-grade student Nathan Mallery, 8, of Alexandria as first grade students Emma Gugel, and Daniel Delehanty, wait for their turn to take a bubble during a weekly science experiment Friday, Oct. 30. “We do the human light bulb, you make a circuit out of the people and the light bulb,” she said.

The way the experiment works is to have the students hold hands and have a student hold a trans-

former and another hold a fluorescent long light bulb. “So, we teach open and closed circuit that way,” Hubbard said. Hubbard is in her second year as Reiley’s principal, she has previously served a year as staff developer, three years as a science teacher at the district’s middle school, and 17 years as an elementary teacher. Another experiment teaches students about air pressure by using a hard boiled egg, a bottle, and lighting a piece of newspaper on fire inside of a bottle. The egg is place over the bottle’s opening, and although that puts out the fire, it’s long enough to heat the air inside the bottle, and the difference in pressure sucks the egg inside the bottle, she said. “Students learn science best through hands-on instruction and that is how we teach here at Reiley,” Hubbard said. “Our students do lots of hands-on experiments especially at the fourth-grade level.”

NKU receives grant

Northern Kentucky University has received notice that the National Science Foundation (NSF) will provide grant funding for a novel program to stimulate computational thinking across many disciplines. The project, titled “Informatics at Multiple Scales,” will be funded at $296,000 over three years. Proposed by computer scientists in the NKU College of Informatics, one of its key goals is to give all undergraduate students a chance to explore how computation connects with science, humanities and the arts. The NSF program that funds the project is titled “Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education.” The purpose of this national program is to contribute to the development of a globally competitive workforce with competency in computational thinking. Over the next three years, the program will bring to campus so-called “informaticists in residence.” These are scientists, scholars and artists from other institutions whose work connects with computing. They will assist NKU faculty inside and outside the College of Informatics in

developing an innovative Principles of Informatics course and an associated textbook.


They will also help develop advanced computer science student projects in new application areas.

Most Campbell teams head to playoffs By James Weber

Most of the five football teams in Campbell County still competing this week clinched playoff berths weeks ago. Whenever they got there, it’s time for all five to put those spots to use. Playoff action starts Nov. 6, beginning a trail they hope ends in the state finals Dec. 4-5 at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. Bellevue, the No. 2 seed in District 3, will host Gallatin County in a Class 1A opener. Gallatin, the No. 3 seed in District 4 (4-6) upset the Tigers last year in the playoffs after Bellevue won in the regular season. Bishop Brossart will travel to Frankfort (7-3). The Mustangs, the fourth seed enjoying their first-ever playoff berth, will play the District 4 champs. The winners of the Bellevue and Brossart games will play each other in Round 2. The better seed will host. In the third round, the remaining two teams from these two districts will play each other, with the better seed hosting. In a tie, the Northern Kentucky district gets the home game. The survivor of the third round travels west for the state semifinals against the District 1/2 regional champion. Mayfield (9-1) and Louisville Holy Cross (5-5) are the district champions there. Newport and Newport Central Catholic are in opposite halves of the regional draw as their District 6 bat-

tles District 5 in the first three rounds. NewCath, the District 6 champ, hosts Carroll County (6-4), the No. 4 seed from District 5. With a win, NewCath hosts either Lloyd or Christian AcademyLouisville. Newport, the fourth seed, travels to Louisville to play DeSales (7-3), the District 5 champ. The winner plays either Owen County or Holy Cross. Newport would travel for either opponent. In the third round, the better seed of the two survivors hosts the game. The Northern Kentucky team would travel in a tie. Newport and NewCath would host a state semifinal against the District 7/8 survivor. Corbin (8-2) and Prestonsburg (10-0) were the district champs. Highlands, the lone 5A state champion in the first two years of the six-class alignment, begins its title defense at home against Montgomery County (3-7). No matter who they face if they keep winning, Highlands has home field advantage through the state semifinals. “That is so huge for us,” Highlands head coach Dale Mueller said. “Instead of sitting three hours on a bus, we will be watching film. We love playing here.” With a win, the Bluebirds would host either Dixie Heights or Ashland Blazer in

The Thoroughbreds (55) scored all 26 of their points in the second quarter and held off a fourth quarter rally by the Tigers (6-4) to earn the win in the regular season finale. Brady Hightchew rushed for 185 yards and three touchdowns to lead NewCath. Matt Rigdon rushed for 108 yards and passed for 122 yards to lead Beechwood. Both teams open the postseason on Nov. 6 with home games as the top seed in their respective districts.

NewCath falls in state volleyball semis

By James Weber

After three straight nailbiting wins in the postseason, time ran out on the Newport Central Catholic volleyball team. The sand kept falling longer than many expected as the Thoroughbreds lost to Sacred Heart, 25-10, 258 in the state semifinals Oct. 31 at Northern Kentucky University. NCC finished 21-10 in its fourth straight appearance in the state tourney and second straight in the semifinals. The ’Breds had graduated six seniors including four college players from last year’s team, and often had four sophomores on the floor this season. Minus the heartbreak a close loss would have provided, the Thoroughbreds were mostly upbeat about their journey to the semis. “I thought we did absolutely great,” said one of the sophomores, setter Taylor Snyder. “We went out there thinking we were going to have fun and have a great time.” NCC head coach Vicki Fleissner said Sacred Heart was more experienced than they were “I have all the intentions of coming back here with the majority of this group. They’ve proved so much this season. Nobody picked us to do well in districts, no one picked us to win regionals or go to the state semifinals. I’m so thrilled for

NCC had upset Campbell County in a tight 10th Region final (19-25, 25-20, 25-21), then in the state tournament pulled out close wins over Apollo (33-31, 25-22) and Oldham County (23-25, 25-23, 25-18). “We pulled through and really fought hard,” Snyder said. “We showed people that we will not give up and

we’ll keep fighting.” Snyder and sophomore hitter Liz Gruenschlaeger were named to the all-tournament team. Gruenschlaeger had 27 kills in the two wins. Sophomore Maggie O’Day had 19. Snyder had 67 assists in the two wins. NCC loses three seniors in Ashley Piller, Frannie Schultz and Trisha Taylor.

Trash for Cash

I would like to take the time to thank the Northern Kentucky Solid Waste Department for hosting the Cash for Trash Program. The boys and young men in Troop 75 from Alexandria along with adult volunteers cleaned up five miles of roads in southern Campbell County. It was a beautiful crisp fall day and our group enjoyed themselves. The money earned from the work will go into each boy’s Scout account to be used for Scout related actives, such as camp outing, camping equipment, and summer camp. I would also like to thank David Plummer, Campbell Solid Waste coordinator, for his help and aid in working with my Troop for the Trash for Cash Program. Jim Roessler Scout Master Troop 75, Alexandria

More trash, more cash

As a church we are always looking for different ways to raise money for our Teen Youth Group. The Trash for Cash fundraising idea worked out great because we were able to not only raise money but were able to give back by cleaning up the environment. We assembled a group of 45 volunteers that walked a 10 mile stretch through Wilder, Kentucky. Along the way we picked up roughly 25 bags of litter from the area. Many of our teens have a new outlook on litter and will think twice before just tossing trash out the window. Newport Church of God Souled Out Youth Group Keturah Street Newport

What is the scariest movie you’ve seen? The scariest movie villain? What made them so scary? “I can’t remember the last scariest movie I saw ... maybe ‘Poltergeist’ ... living in today’s society is scarier than I can handle.” Florence “I don’t watch scary movies. The evening news is frightening enough for me.” G.G. “I wouldn’t waste my money on today’s ‘scary,’ i.e. blood, violence, gore, sex, etc. but a long, long time ago I loved what I thought was scary was all the Frankenstein movies. What your imagination can dream up is a lot scarier.” Duke “Scariest? ‘The Exorcist’! The reverse spider walk down the steps scene makes me leave the room. At that point, what’s the use for a priest? Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ is pretty scary.” T.S. “I would have to say the scariest movie I ever saw was ‘Psycho’ directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It was a 1960 black and white “who done it” thriller. As opposed to today’s blood and guts (make you sick) movies this one really kept you on the edge of your seat.

Horses and Hope saves lives In a little over one year, it is remarkable just how many people the Horses and Hope program has touched across the Commonwealth. Every year between 2,800 and 3,200 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the second leading cause of death for women in Kentucky. When presented with such a staggering statistic in 2008, I knew something must be done. My drive to help tackle this issue head on led to the development of Horses and Hope: an initiative to educate, improve awareness and offer screenings for the often overlooked members of Kentucky’s horse industry. Since its inception, we have hit the ground running in every corner of the state, mobilizing survivors, doctors and advocates to help us spread the word far and wide about the importance of being screened. Recently we hosted a successful race day at Keeneland, where a sea of pink dresses, scarves, ties and ribbons flooded the grandstands. Con-

versations between mothers, sisters and daughters about the importance of telling their friends and neighbors to get screened filled the racetrack. These are the conversations that save lives. The overwhelming amount of support from partners for the Horses and Hope program has been truly outstanding. Due to the hard work of partner groups as well as our committed volunteers and steering committee – The Pink Stable – we will be able to ensure that our next years of operation are even more inclusive as we work together to provide information about the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. The figures to date for Horses and Hope are extraordinary: • Four of Kentucky’s primary racetracks – Ellis Park, Turfway Park, Keeneland and Churchill Downs – have been the site of multiple Breast Cancer Race Day celebrations. • More than 760 track workers were educated about the importance of testing for breast cancer.


• Six screening dates using mobile mammogram technologies at Kentucky’s racetracks led to the further testing and diagnosis of breast cancer in two individuals. • 1,790 Race Day survivors and guests were in attendance at Horses and Hope events, including 135 at the 2009 Kentucky Oaks “Pink Out” Day. • More than 125,246 Race Day fans have learned more about the importance of being tested as well as about the prevalence of breast cancer in the commonwealth. • To date, approximately $96,361 has been raised to help continue this important, life-saving program. For more information about how to become involved in the Horses and Hope program and for information about upcoming 2009 Breast Cancer Race Days, visit Jane Beshear is first lady of Kentucky.

Serving jury duty in Campbell Co. I recently received a telephone inquiry on jury service and our office receives calls on this issue throughout the year. Some people ask why they never get called for jury duty while other people ask why they seem to always get called for jury duty. In this article I will explain how jurors are selected and what qualifications they must have. Jurors are selected randomly from a master list of all persons in the county over 18 years of age who file individual tax returns, have a valid driver’s license and/or who are registered voters in the county. In the past, the juror list consisted of registered voters and property owners. It was suspected that some individuals who were not property owners did not register to vote so that they did not have to serve on jury duty. Therefore, several years ago, the list of jurors was changed to include those listed above. As mentioned above, jurors are selected randomly and can be called once every two years. A juror must be a citizen of the United States, a resident of Campbell County, able to speak and understand the English language and not be a convicted felon or under felony indictment. Once you are called to jury duty, you are required to serve. If a juror fails to fill out and mail in the juror qualification

form or fails to appear for jury duty, he or she may be punished by the court for contempt which could include fines and/or jail time. A judge may excuse a juror from duty upon a showing of undue hardship, extreme inconvenience or public necessity. Examples of such would be a juror who is due to deliver a child, a severely physically handicapped individual or a state or federal legislator who needs to be in Frankfort or in Washington while the legislature is in session. Generally courts will allow a postponement of jury duty from one month to another if there is a good reason for such. An example of a good reason would be a selfemployed individual who is extremely busy and does most of his work in the summer months could have his jury duty postponed to one of the winter months. An employer is not allowed to fire, threaten or coerce an employee who takes off work for jury duty. If an employer discharges an employee in connection with jury duty, the employer may be sued for lost wages, reinstatement and attorney fees. It is discretionary with employers whether to pay employees their normal wages when the employees are on jury duty. In addition to jury duty in a District or Circuit Court in Campbell County, a

Newport couple shares love for running, each other

By Amanda Joering Alley


Joe Bergman, manager of Southern States Campbell Service in Alexandria, steps out of a delivery truck in front of the store.

Southern States’ store still a local connection Despite Southern States’ loss of status as a locally operated business in 2008, little has changed in the way of customer service and operations. Southern States Campbell Cooperative, became Southern States Campbell Service in January 2008. Essentially the store became a branch of a bigger cooperative, said Joe Bergman, manager of the Alexandria store for 23 years. “For 99 percent of the customers, they couldn’t tell a difference,” Bergman said of being bought out. The agri-business started in Newport and moved to Alexandria in the late 1940s. “Feed and seed has always been a big thing, and it’s gone from all agricultural stuff to a lot of homes and gardens,” he said. Today’s Southern States also sells fertilizer and mulch, horse and cattle feed, and delivery service. There is a garden center geared for homeowners,

Location and hours Southern States is located at Jefferson and Main streets in Alexandria. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. For information call 635-2104. fencing, a small lawn mower and engine repair shop, and a sales area for lawn and tilling equipment and seasonal items including insulated coveralls. Each employee has a special knowledge area like cattle, horses, and gardening. And everyone learns and uses the names of customers, Bergman said. The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving will be customer appreciation days with sale prices and free country ham sandwiches, he said. “I try to make it a downhome place where people always feel like they’re welcome, a friendly place,” Bergman said.

When Emily Bello met Todd, now her husband, she didn’t realize the meeting would change her life. Besides meeting the man she would later decide to spend the rest of her life with, it also led to her love for running. “I met Todd, my now husband, in 2004 and he had been an avid marathon runner for a few years,” Emily said. “When I went to Disney World to watch him run his eighth marathon, I decided that I, too, wanted to run a marathon.” Todd said he began running marathons after college as a way to stay in shape and hasn’t stopped since. “In ’97 I ran my first marathon, and I pretty much fell in love with running,” Todd said. Since the Disney World Marathon, Todd has shared that love with Emily, coaching and training her to run marathons. Though she had never run more than four miles before meeting Todd, Emily finished her first marathon in October 2005 in four hours and 29 minutes. “Over the course of five marathons to come, Todd ran by my side and coached me to cutting one hour off my time and qualifying for the Boston Marathon,” Emily said. “We ran Boston in April, and I set my personal record of three hours and 26 minutes.” While Emily’s time qualified her for the Boston Marathon, Todd has to achieve a faster time to qualify, Emily said. So during training, he ran 20 miles with her, at her pace, every Saturday, then got up before church on Sunday to run another 20 miles at his pace.


Todd and Emily Bello. “He has sacrificed so much for me,” Emily said. “I tell people that I am not sure we would have fallen in love if it had not been for our running and it has kept us so strong over the years.” Todd said running together gave them a lot of time to get to know each other in the beginning of

their relationship. “We both love running and it’s just given us the opportunity to spend time together doing something we love,” Todd said. The couple recently completed their first ultra marathon of 50 miles in Nashville, with Emily placing as the female winner.

“Of course, Todd was by my side the entire time,” Emily said. “We were holding hands as we crossed the finish line.” After they competed in their first half Ironman in August, the couple is scheduled to participate in the full Louisville 2010 Ironman next August.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati needs adult volunteers to mentor at-risk children in many areas of the Tristate, but has a particular need right now at Fourth Street Elementary in Newport. Debbie Mollette coordinates the School-Based mentoring program for the agency and said finding volunteers for 3 p.m. is presenting a challenge. “It’s much easier for many people to volunteer during their lunch hour,” she said. “Coming in after school can be tougher, but this would be great for someone who works a different shift, is retired, or is lucky enough to have a flexible schedule.” Nearly a dozen children currently are matched as “Little Brothers” and “Little Sisters” in the school, but Mollette says they could use at least a dozen more adults to spend time with other students there. She used to work in the school as a mentoring coordinator and said, “My heart


Carla Twomey and her Little Brother Corey. is still here in the community. These kids are bright and talented and we should all be helping them make the most of all that potential. People might not understand the difference an hour can make. “Just reading with a child, playing a game, talking and listening, that’s what our ‘Bigs’ do, and we’ve seen it change lives,” she said. Carla Twomey is one of

the newest volunteers at Fourth Street. She and her Little Brother Corey are still getting to know each other. They’ve been playing games, reading and just talking. A former teacher, Twomey knows how important it is for children to see adults willing to help them. “If the people who can reach out choose not to, the world is in big trouble. A day, an hour, a child at a time, we can make a differ-

ence,” she said. That’s why she makes the 20 minute drive from her Anderson home each Monday afternoon and why she recruited a friend to join her as a Big Brother to another child.

The longing that never goes away have made us for yourself, O God, and our hearts are ever restless until they rest in you.” Admit it or not, there is a spiritual component of our nature. It is a longing for the transcendent, for God. For a creature, total fulfillment will only be found permanently with its Creator. Strange, but many of us fear our spiritual longing. Why fear it? One reason is because we think it will cost us too much of our humanness and the enjoyment of this life. Paradoxically, it will increase it. We fear, as Francis Thompson feared as he ran from God, “Lest having thee, I might have naught else besides.” We also fear publicly admitting our need for God because of the secular implications that say only the mentally deficient believe in a God. In response to this fear of spirituality, James W. Jones, professor of religion at Rutgers University, says, “The struggle to find meaning by connecting with a universal, cosmic, moral and sacred reality represents not a failure of nerve, the onset of premature senility, or a lapse into neurosis, but is rather a natural part of the unhindered development process. The denial of this quest for the transcendent

debilitates and impoverishes our life.” Got that? This doctor of psychology at a prestigious university is telling us it’s quite normal to realize you long for God. You’re not neurotic or senile for doing so, you’re not weird; in fact you’re being true to your nature. It makes your life worse by not doing so. Spirituality is not optional. Certainly we need material possessions to live, and enjoyment to thrive, but we need a spiritual dimension to live fully. It enables us to find purpose and meaning

and connects us our source and destiny. It fills out our picture. The fact that longing constantly nips at our heels proves it’s not optional. It’s crucial for general health. “Among all my patients in the second half of life, that is to say over 35, there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life,” wrote Carl Jung. Our consumer society tries to contradict that Jungian idea. It says our longing is exclusively for this

Though we enjoy this wonderful world, our longing wants to call us ever onward and up where we belong. world and this world can completely satisfy. Ridiculous! A society that tells its people they should live a certain way, if that way is fundamentally in opposition to what people are by nature, produces what Nietzsche termed the “sick animal.” There is a longing down

deep where the sparks of our humanity smolder. Though we enjoy this wonderful world, our longing wants to call us ever onward and up where we belong.

The experience of longing is familiar to everyone. Throughout a lifetime we long for myriads of things – a special toy, a friend, popularity, a lover, m o r e m o n e y, better sex, a promoFather Lou t i o n , Guntzelman health and Perspectives so it goes. Yet no matter what we acquire or achieve the ache of longing is never completely erased. Eventually there’s something or someone else we think we need in order to be happy. Longing is a sign of our incompleteness. We never reach a prolonged time when we hold something in our hands and say, “This is all I ever wanted and all I will ever need.” One of last century’s most prominent Protestant theologians, Jurgen Moltmann, wrote: “Once awakened by specific promises that stretch further than any fulfillment … once we have caught in them a whiff of the future, we remain restless and urgent, seeking and searching beyond all experiences of fulfillment …” St. Augustine told us the same centuries ago, “You

Chilly weather outside means chili inside Plus, Rita’s grandson ‘fishes’ for birthday dinner

I had to laugh when grandson Jack requested tilapia from Keegan’s Seafood for his fourth birthday’s dinner. It’s a small shop in Mount Washington owned by Tom Keegan. K e e Rita gan’s a Heikenfeld w a l k i n g encyclopeRita’s kitchen dia for seafood and loves showing the kids all the different varieties to make them more aware about eating healthy. The reason I laughed is when we were growing up, the only seafood we ate was frozen whiting, fried, and fresh bass caught by my Mom and brother, Charlie. I didn’t even know what

tilapia was until I was in my 30s. We need to support independent folks like Tom. So if you have a favorite independent deli/grocer, etc. let me know and I’ll feature them and a signature recipe in an upcoming column. I want to hear from readers across the board: north, south, east and west!

Herb crusted halibut

Any nice white fish will do. When I teach seafood classes, this is a student favorite. Four servings halibut, skinless, 6 to 8 oz. each 1 ⁄2 cup approx. Dijon mustard Salt and pepper 1 ⁄2 cup basil, finely chopped 1 ⁄4 cup each: cilantro, mint, parsley, chives and dill, finely chopped Butter Pat fish dry. Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper and lightly brush both sides with mustard. Combine herbs and place in shallow dish. Press both sides of fish into herb mix-

ture, coating evenly. In a nonstick pan, melt about 2 tablespoons butter and turn heat to medium. Add fish. Cook several minutes on each side, until done. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: Don’t overcook fish. When it flakes easily, it’s done. Seafood 101: Watch my cable TV show with Tom on Union Township TV (Warner 8 and 15) to learn all you need to know about seafood.

Melissa’s Schaiper’s easy chicken chili

There’s a good amount of interest in the chicken chili Good Samaritan serves in their cafeteria. Friend, great cook and Good Sam’s cath lab queen (my given title) Kay Hitzler found out it’s a purchased product.

Kay’s group in the catheter lab held a tailgating lunch and Melissa Schaiper, a colleague of Kay’s, brought a crockpot chicken chili that was a huge hit. Kay said Melissa’s chili is a bit spicier than Good Sam’s. So I would say use a mild salsa. and at

Rita’s lower fat Fiddle Faddle clone

I developed this for the book “Sports Nutrition for Idiots.” Flaxseed is optional and the store-bought version doesn’t contain this. 4 cups popped corn 1 tablespoon flaxseed 1 cup caramel ice cream topping, heated in microwave

Spray crockpot. Add:

1 pound chicken breast 4 cups canned Great Northern beans 12 oz. salsa 1 teaspoon each: cumin and garlic Cook six hours on low. An hour before serving, stir in 4 ounces of pepper jack cheese. Serve with 4 more ounces of cheese. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: If you want, stir in more cumin and garlic after six hours. More chili recipes: In my online column at www.

Mix popcorn and flax. Pour topping over, stirring to coat as well as you can. Pour onto sprayed cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 250degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Makes 4 cups.

Rooting out recipes

Fern’s chili. For Pam Timme. “It was in the Enquirer long ago and I’ve lost it.” I’m wondering if it’s Fern Storer’s recipe. She was the Post food editor for years and a wonderful cook. Red Lobster’s sun-

dried tomato salad dressing. For Dwight. He had no luck calling the company. (They don’t serve it anymore). He also went online, researched recipe books, etc. Mio’s creamy garlic dressing. Spoke with Chris Forbes, owner of the Milford Mio’s. “Can’t divulge it. There’s garlic, sour cream, milk, pepper and sugar in it.” When I asked if there was any vinegar, lemon juice, etc., he said no. If anyone has a creamy garlic recipe similar, please share. Bravo’s strawberry lasagna for Betty Hawley. I’m giving up on this Augusta, Ky., restaurant’s dessert. I’ve made several calls to the owner, who at first thought she might share, but she hasn’t returned my calls.

NKU to host sessions on Fort Knox employment As many as 1,400 new jobs will soon be coming to Fort Knox – and a team of experts from Fort Knox are visiting Northern Kentucky University to conduct onehour information sessions to let NKU students and others know about these opportunities. The sessions, to be held in the University Center Otto Budig Theater, will be at 12:15 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Nov. 10. “Army representatives want to make sure NKU students understand that for applicants with college degrees, their degree can qualify them for many of these jobs,” said Sherry Johnson, Lincoln Trail Area Development District associate director for employment and training. “What’s going on at Fort Knox is the equivalent of having a Fortune 500 company move their headquarters to Kentucky,” she said. It is anticipated that there will be as many as 1,400 openings for civilian workers, out of a total of more than 5,000 total civilian jobs on Fort Knox. Most of these job openings will be in human resource management, information technology and

administrative fields. But there will also be openings in a wide variety of other disciplines, from business, finance, marketing, research analyst and many more. “This informational event will be a great opportunity for NKU students and alumni as well as the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati community to find out about careers with the federal government in Fort Knox, Ky.,” said Dr. Keley Smith-Keller, director of the NKU Career Development Center. “We would like to see many of these jobs filled by our local workforce,” said Brad Richardson, executive director of One Knox. “Almost all require significant experience for the mid and higher levels, but at the entry levels a college degree can be used as a substitute for experience.” The Fort Knox information sessions are sponsored and coordinated by the NKU Career Development Center, the NKU Veteran’s Advocacy Committee and the NKU student veteran’s organization, V.E.T.S. (Veterans for Education and Transition Support). Call the Career Development Center for more information, at 859-572-5680.

Potted bulbs can ‘light up’ your spring anywhere well, or actually heel them into the ground, and cover with mulch or leaves for the winter. Check to make sure they have soil moisture when you move them, and water lightly over the winter as the soil dries. Otherwise, just let them sit dormant enjoying the cold temperatures. Early next spring, when the bulbs start to grow, bring them in to the house, or place your potted bulbs in an outdoor planter, give them a light water soluble

and then continue to fill the pot to the top, lightly compressing the soil as you fill. Water your potted bulbs thoroughly, and you’re ready to grow. Now, here’s the secret: You must over winter your potted bulbs in cold temperatures. So, leave your pots sitting outside, watering them when the soil dries out. Once the temperatures outside have become cold, consistently, move the planted bulb pots inside an unheated garage or shed, put them down in a window

grances, and a few minor bulbs, like crocus, for early colors. Take your pots and place about an inch or two of the potting mix in the bottom. Then, evenly distribute your bulbs in the mix, point up, and feel free to plant them a little closer than you would normally in the ground. For the tulips, place the flat side of the bulb to the outside of the pot. Cover your bulbs with more of your soil-less mix, sprinkle on a little bulb food,

You can “light up” your yard next spring by planting spring bulbs in the ground now. But guess what? You can do the same thing to light up your outdoor containers next spring, or to bring spring bulb colors inside your home. Instead of planting bulbs in the ground, simply plant them in a pot. Growing spring bulbs in a container is easy. Here’s what you’ll need for your potted spring bulbs: • 4-, 6-, 8-inch or larger

feeding, water as needed, and let them do their “spring thing.” When they’re totally finished blooming and growing, you can take them out of the pot, plant them in the garden, and enjoy them for years to come.

To register shoe box gifts and find out what country they are delivered to, use the EZ Give donation form found at

boxes from families, kids, churches, schools and civic organizations in the area.

The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management reminds citizens that disasters happen anytime and anywhere. When disaster strikes, you may not have much time to respond. A highway spill or hazardous material could mean evacuation. A winter storm could confine your family at home. An earthquake, flood, tornado or any other disaster could cut water, electricity and telephones -for days. After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it may take days. Would your family be prepared to cope with the emergency until help arrives? One way to prepare is by assembling a Disaster Supplies Kit. Once disaster hits, you won't have time to shop or search for supplies. But if you've gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.

To Prepare Your Kit

Gather the supplies. That you may need if your family is confined at home. Place the supplies you'd most likely need for an evacuation in an easy-tocarry container. Possible containers include: a large, covered trash container, a camping backpack or a duffle bag There are six basics you should stock for your home: water, food, first aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies and special items.


Store water in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles. Avoid using containers that will decompose or break, such as milk cartons or glass bottles. A normally active person needs to drink at least two quarts of water each day. Hot environments and intense physical activity can double that amount. Children, nursing mothers and ill people will need more. Store one gallon of water per person. Keep at least a three-day supply of per day (two quarts for drinking, two quarts of water for each person in your household for food preparation/sanitation.) Food Store at least a three-day

Feature of the Week

The Doolin House Bed & Breakfast

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland leads you to NW Florida’s Beach Vacation Rentals along the beaches of South Walton. Luxurious gulf-front homes, seaside condos and cottages. Dune Allen Realty, 50 yrs of excellent service and accommodations. 888-267-2121 or visit


There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
