Hart loses reelection by 28 votes By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — First-time candidate Andrew “Andy” Schabell received the most votes of any Alexandria City Council candidate Nov. 6 as W. David Hart failed in his bid for an eighth twoyear term. Schabell received 2,705 votes, 311 more than incumbent Stacey Graus, the candidate with the second-highest vote tally of 2,394. Schabell will join Graus and four other incumbents who won reelection on council in January.

Scott Fleckinger, Barbara D. Weber, Bob Simon and Joe Anderson also retained their seats on council. Hart, Lloyd Rogers and James J.W. Glahn reHart ceived the three lowest vote tallies and did not win one of the six council seats. Schabell, 34, said he was surprised and happy about having the most votes of the candidates. “With that big of a margin, I think people are going to expect a

lot out of me, and I think that’s a good thing,” he said. Schabell said he has already scheduled a meeting with the mayor, and plans to spend time talking Schabell with current and former council members before taking office in January. Schabell said he is signed up to take a threeday course about council duties and responsibilities through the Kentucky League of Cities and that he has recently watched ev-

ery recorded council meeting for the past 18 months and reviewed the transcripts. “Once I get in there, I’m going to hit the ground running,” Schabell said. “I’m going to know what’s going on.” Schabell said he plans to continue having conversations and answering questions from residents on his Facebook page and website throughout his time in office.

Library mistake causes need for tax bill reprint Adds to existing tax bill delay By Chris Mayhew

NEWPORT — The Campbell County Public Library will pay to reprint all property tax bills after having them printed with the library tax increase rate voters rejected at the polls Nov. 6. The library did not make a legal notice of the potential tax rates in the event the ballot measure failed, said JC Morgan, library director. “We did not advertise that rate as we were required to by state law,” Morgan said. The library asked for the reprinting because having the proper tax rate is the right thing to do, he said. “That reprinting will come at our expense,” Morgan said. The incorrect rate of 9.4 cents per $100 of property valuation for library tax portion of property taxes was printed on the bills. Voters turned down the 9.4 cents rate at the polls, rejecting the 27 percent tax increase from the 2011 rate of 7.4 cents per $100 of assessed value. State law pertaining to legal petitions required no action by the library board, and the rate automatically reverts to the compensating rate set by the state, he said. Morgan said the library was notified of the wrong rate being on the tax bills Nov. 8. The correct rate that will be on the reprinted tax bills will be 7.7

cents per $100 of assessed property valuation. “And we reacted immediately to have the tax bills printed correctly,” Morgan said. The library will pay the county clerk and sheriff offices for the cost of reprinting and stuffing the new tax bills in envelopes, he said. All tax bills, numbering about 32,000, are in the process of being reprinted, said Campbell County Clerk Jack Snodgrass, whose office prints the bills. Printing of new bills will begin either Saturday, Nov. 10 or Monday, Nov. 12, Snodgrass said. The cost of reprinting the tax bills will likely be around $20,000, he said. Snodgrass said the library’s board had to send in a tax rate for the printed bills within 45 days after July 17 – when the Property Valuation Administrator certified all property valuations in the county. The library board sent in the 9.4 cent tax rate, he said. Snodgrass said this is the first time the tax bills have had to be reprinted for an incorrect rate for at least the 23 years he has been in office. There was a way for the library board to avoid the tax bills being printed incorrectly, he said. “There is a law, if we do not receive a tax rate by a certain date it remains the same as it was the previous year,” Snodgrass said. “That could have

Joe Anderson edged Hart out by 28 votes for the final of six spots on council. Anderson won a second term with 1,938 votes. Hart, a member of council for 14 years, received1,910 votes in a losing bid. Hart will remain open to the possibility of seeking office again in Alexandria. Hart was very disappointed by the loss, which he said must have been his fault either because of something lacking in what he has done or in the appearance he left.

Remaining vote counts

Incumbents Fleckinger (2,380 votes), Weber (2,325 votes), and Simon (2,066 votes) won re-election . Rogers, a former council member lost with 1,713 votes, and first-time candidate James J.W. Glahn received the lowest vote total of 1,540.

Voters arrived in force early on Election Day


Clerk Jack Snodgrass. The same thing was happening in Boone and Kenton counties, and in reaction Snodgrass said he had a vendor immediately print more ballots for fear precincts might run out. “At no time were we ever run out of ballots, which was good,” he said. Voter turnout did slow down, and in about a third of the county’s 66 voting precincts there were only a few stragglers coming in to cast

ballots during the last two hours of voting between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m, Snodgrass said. Of the 63,615 registered voters in the county, 40,434 people voted Nov. 6. The county has 28,351 registered Republicans, 27,828 registered Democrats, and 7,436 people are registered with other political parties or as independent. Snodgrass said Election Day mostly went smoothly,

and results were completed by his office by around 8 p.m. “We were packing up about 8:20 p.m.,” he said. The races people cast the most votes in Campbell County were the Presidential election, receiving slightly more than 40,000 votes, and the library question, which received 38,545 votes. “The biggest turnout, it’s always the presidential,” Snodgrass said.

the Campbell County Sheriff office. Mailing of tax bills was previously delayed by two weeks to wait for the election of a new sheriff and related state required audit, Seibert said. The library tax rate error was discovered late in the afternoon Thursday, Nov. 8, and was not expected by anyone in the sheriff office, he said.

It will take about a week for the office staff to print letters and use a machine to stuff the new tax bills into envelopes, Seibert said. The misprinted tax bills were ready to be mailed Nov. 14 on an already delayed collection schedule, he said. “They were in envelopes, the postage hadn’t been put on the envelopes,” he said.

ALEXANDRIA — As Thanksgiving nears, community groups are collecting food to distribute through local church food pantries. The City of Alexandria will have a food drive seeking donations of canned and other non-perishable foods from the public from 9 a.m. to1p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 inside the council chambers at the city building, 8236 W. Main St. The food donations will be split up between Alexandria area churches, said Joe Anderson, a member of council who suggested the food drive. The CARE Mission based on the campus of Main Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, will be one of the pantries receiving donations from the food drive. “I think it’s just a positive thing for our community to put some canned goods and foods on the shelves, there’s a number of churches around that participate in this type of program,” said Anderson . The Campbell County Homemakers members are also busy collecting personal care items and food to take to the C.A.R.E. Mission, said Kate Vaught, a liaison for the group.

School FFA appeals to non-farmers By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County High School sent five students to the national Future Farmers of America convention in October, and three of them didn’t grow up in farming. All five of the students, Jessie Strasinger, Luke Trapp, Sidney Boots, Hannah Weber, and James Wilbers, placed in the top 10 at the national FFA convention in Indianapolis Oct. 23-27. About 55,000 students attended the FFA national convention, and it was an “eye-opener” for the five students to place in the top 10 in the country, said agriculture teacher O.P. McCubbins. McCubbins said his mission

includes reaching and teaching the many students who didn’t grow up on a farm. Agriculture touches everyone from the clothes they wear to what they eat, and only 2 percent of agriculture jobs are in farming, he said. “I try to open the kids eyes to the other 98 percent,” McCubbins said. Careers include the agricultural biology, food science, chemical engineering, wildlife biology or management, and even landscaping, McCubbins said. McCubbins said he is working with Hillshire Brands, operator of the former Sara Lee plant, to open up a meats lab on the high school’s campus next school year. The goal is to teach food science, processing and distribution to a

global economy, he said. Science brought junior Hannah Weber of Alexandria into the school’s FFA chapter. Weber, who did not grow up on a farm, placed eighth in the nation with a gold rating in the FFA agriscience fair for her study of “Essential Oils Effect on the Inhibition of E. coli.” Weber also won a bronze rating in the prepared public speaking competition. Weber said her speech focused on how different plants either absorb or break down metals and other organic chemicals in soil. “Basically, it’s just using plants to clean up the environment,” she said. Junior Sidney Boots of Alexandria and junior Jessie Strasin-

ger took ninth in the nation with a silver rating for their study of “Student Perceptions on Genetically Modified Foods.” “Ever since my freshman year I have been extremely interested in becoming an agriculture educator, and I did not grow up in in a rural or agricultural background,” Boots said. Boots said it was her first trip to FFA nationals and she enjoyed meeting people who all share a common interest in agriculture. They all wore blue FFA jackets, and the state on the back didn’t matter in conversations, she said. Sophomores James Wilbers of California and Luke Trapp took second place and a gold rating for their “Grain Fed Verses Grain

and Grass Fed Goats” project. Whether the goats ate an all grain or all grass diet didn’t seem to impact the animals’ weight, Wilbers said. Wilbers said he did grow up on a farm, and he plans to major in agriculture in college. Not everyone attending the high school farms, so being in FFA was a great way to open up opportunities and meet other people interested in the subject, he said. Being at the national convention was a great way to meet and keep up with a bunch of new friends, Wilbers said. “I thought it was pretty cool when we were in the stadium looking out over the crowd, everybody in their blue jackets, that was pretty cool,” he said.

Southgate groups receive donations, students raise funds

By Amanda Joering

SOUTHGATE — The bank accounts of the Southgate Educational Foundation and the Lion’s Pride parent organization have gotten a little fuller thanks to the generosity of a local company and hard work by the students. The two groups, which both support Southgate Independent School, recently received a $500 donation each from Aguiar Law office, a Louisville business that just opened its first local office in Newport. “I think it’s amazing when you have a business that moves here, and right away they’re trying to help the community,” said Dwain Bowling, past president of the foundation. “They are being tremendous corporate citizens.” The foundation, formed in 1999 when the state and federal government started mandating technology the school couldn’t afford, helps by providing funds for a variety of things including computers and software. Bowling said the donation made by Aguiar Law will likely

be matched in grant money, allowing the foundation to spend $1,000 total on the students thanks to their generosity. John Cannady-Miller, attorney with Aguiar Law, said in Louisville, their business is very community oriented and works to make the neighborhoods and community stronger. “We wanted to bring that tradition up here,” Cannady-Miller said. “We hope to do what we can to support the community.” The business also donated money to the school’s Lion’s Pride parent organization, which pays for extracurricular activities like sports, covering the cost of student uniforms and fees. “This money will definitely be put to good use,” said Kelly Rizzo, president of the Lion’s Pride. Along with the donation, the group also received additional funds through a recent jump-athon. While the group has hosted walk-a-thons in the past as a fundraiser, school nurse and group member Cheryl Iden said they decided to try something new this year.

NKU Notes

» Northern Kentucky University men’s soccer players Michael Bartlett and A.J. Fleak took postseason honors from the Atlantic Sun Conference. Bartlett was named to the A-Sun All-

Academic team and Fleak was named to the All-Freshmen team. Bartlett, a senior from Alexandria, Ky., started all 18 matches for the Norse this season, playing every minute. The Norse captain chipped in three points this season and was a controlling force in the midfield. Bartlett scored a goal in NKU’s 2-0 win over IPFW on Oct. 9., and assisted in the equalizing goal in the Norse’s 1-1 tie with FGCU on Oct. 4. The marketing major has posted a 3.68 grade point average. Fleak, a freshman from Sunbury, Ohio, was in net for all of NKU’s seven victories. Fleak’s 0.99 goals against average was third in the Atlantic Sun, and first among freshmen. The Norse wrapped up an impressive 7-10-1 campaign. After starting the season 0-6, NKU went 7-4-1over their final12 contests, including a 3-1-1 mark at home, on their way to finishing fourth in the Atlantic Sun. » The Northern Kentucky University volleyball team ended its inaugural season of Division I play in grand fashion, marking its second dramatic come-from-behind victory of the season with a 3-2 (23-25, 2225, 25-20, 25-23, 15-11) decision over Florida Gulf Coast in Atlantic Sun Conference play. The Norse finished the season with a 25-7 overall record and a 12-6 mark in A-Sun play. If eligible, NKU would be the No. 3 seed in the upcoming A-Sun Tournament. FGCU finishes the year as the A-Sun regular season champions with a 22-9 overall mark and a 16-2 conference record. Kelly Morrissey led a group of four Norse in double-figures for kills, notching her 13th double-double of the year with 17 kills and 15 digs to go with a team-high three service aces. Anna Prickel added a careerhigh 27 digs to lead the Norse defense, while Jenna Schreiver dished out 53 assists and added 11 digs for her 12th double-double. Kylee Tarantino also added 21 digs. Several NKU seniors finish their careers in high places in the NKU record books. Buschur eclipsed the 1,200-kill mark, finishing 12th on the all-time list. Additionally, Buschur compiled 295 career block assists to finish second on that list, passing her head coach in the process. Tarantino’s 1,676 career digs place her third all-time at NKU, while Schreiver can lay claim as NKU’s top all-time setter with 5,120 assists.

Third place charming for Mustang teams

By James Weber

They may not have had to contend with the Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts, but to win a state cross country championship, Bishop Brossart had to beat Lloyd’s nearby rival and veritable racing juggernauts, St. Henry. Brossart finished in third place in the team standings in both boys and girls cross country in the Class 1A state meet Nov. 10 at Kentucky Horse Park. “At the start of the season, we wanted to be in the top four, just to be up on the podium,” Brossart head coach Rob Braun said. “We have a young team: One senior, a bunch of new guys. I’m proud of them.” Brossart finished third behind Walton-Verona and St. Henry, who won its 11th straight state championship. Junior Michael Caldwell finished sixth overall to earn an individual medal. He was coming off the individual regional title. “I’m happy with how we did today,” he said. “I couldn’t ask for more. We’re graduating one senior and we have so much ahead of us. We have a really bright future.” Said Braun: “He had a great race at region. This was another good race for him. He was so consistent all year.” Chris Loos finished 24th and Eli Nienaber 26th to lead the way for the Mustangs, who had lost to the Crusaders by just four points in the regional meet. “We really brought it last week in region and we wanted to hang on here in state,” Braun said. “It takes all five and I’m really happy for them.” The Brossart girls team finished third, led by seniors Shannon Donnelly in 18th and Sarah Klump in 27th. Olivia Nienaber, Olivia Johnston and Madison Bertram all finished in the top 42. Also in 1A, Newport Central Catholic finished eighth overall, led by Patrick Allen in 19th and Connor Bartels in 31st. Caitlyn Drohan finished 44th in girls 1A. Dayton’s Chris Johnson finished 53rd in boys. In 3A, Campbell County junior Jennah Flairty finished 33rd in the girls meet. Mark Chaplin finished 60th in the boys meet to lead the Camels to 24th place overall. Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber and look for more photos from the state meet at

Thoroughbreds keep rolling through playoffs By James Weber

There weren’t many enjoyable moments for the Newport Central Catholic team early in the season. Now it’s all about fun for the Thoroughbreds as they continue their quest for a Class 2A state football championship. The Newport Central Catholic football team routed Holy Cross 52-0 Nov. 10 at Newport Stadium, avenging a playoff loss to the Indians in 2011. “We have to take it one game at a time,” said NCC head coach Eddie Eviston. “Last year that was somewhat of a problem, looking past Holy Cross. I don’t know why, because they’re such a great program. But our guys were ready and they were focused tonight.

They were going to make sure they gave it everything they got.” The Thoroughbreds will take on Walton-Verona (10-2) 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, also at Newport. The Thoroughbreds have won six-straight games to improve to 8-4, outscoring opponents by an average of 49-10 in that span. That’s a vast difference from a 2-4 start to the year, with three of the losses to bigger schools and the other to a similar-sized Greater Catholic League school in Cincinnati McNicholas. NewCath is 4-0 against district foes and owns a 34-14 win over perennial rival Beechwood. “It’s another step,” said senior quarterback Josh Cain. “We have to get the job done next week and focus on Walton. Coach puts the game on the line’s job to get it

done. The game depends on them, and we’ve been healthy and playing well.” Against Holy Cross, NewCath rolled to a 28-0 lead at halftime, then tacked on two quick scores in the first 90 seconds of the third quarter. Cain threw a 76-yard TD pass to Mac Franzen, and Dylan Hayes broke through the middle for a 55-yard TD run. Hayes rushed for 161 yards on 11 carries, including an 80-yard TD in the first quarter. Kalvin Moore had a 51-yard TD run and a 27-yard interception return score. Cain threw for 166 yards on just five completions, two of the TDs to Franzen and one to Pete Collopy. The scorefest was great to be the quarterback of. See FOOTBALL, Page A7



NKU hoops squads begin new era By James Weber

Northern Kentucky University had an outstanding fall season in its first foray into Division I competition. The basketball programs will try to keep that going as they tip off their first seasons in the highest level of college sports this month. The women’s team debuted with a tough 49-31 loss at Cincinnati Nov. 9. The men’s team is playing four games at the University of San Diego this week to start the year. The Norse play host team San Diego Nov. 14 (10 p.m.) after Recorder print deadlines. NKU takes on Tulsa 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov.15, Siena10:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov.17 and Cal StateNorthridge 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18. All four games are on WQRT 1160 AM and streamed on NKU went 23-7 last year in Division II, and return three key seniors in point guard Ethan Faulkner, shooting guard Eshaunte Jones and forward Ernest “Stretch” Watson. Faulkner, the former Elliott County High School standout, averaged 10 points per game last season and led NKU with 130 as-

sists. Jones averaged 10.7 points per game. He also drained 69 shots from 3point range and made 44.2 percent of his attempts from behind the arc. Jones is well known to NKU fans for hitting a last-second three-pointer to beat West Virginia in a 2011 exhibition game. Watson averaged 6.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Chad Jackson, a junior point guard and former Scott County High School star, started all 30 games last year, averaging 9.4 points and 3.6 assists last year. He played a full season at Division I James Madison in the Colonial

Athletic Association - one of the nation’s top mid-major leagues - before transferring to NKU. “It should prepare me to be a leader on the court, having that experience and knowing what it takes to compete at the Division I level, how hard you have to work in practice and the athletes you’re going to see,” he said. Jones formerly played at the University of Nebraska. “They know from being there, the talent level is there, how hard you have to compete all the time and how much better everything has to be, especially

when you go on the road,” said NKU head coach Dave Bezold. “We’re going to have to lean on those two guys who have been there.” NKU’s biggest losses were leading scorer Jon Van Hoose, who made 102 threes and averaged 12 points per game, and DeAndre Nealy, who set the school record with 85 blocked shots. Jake Giesler, the 2011 Ninth Region Player of the Year at Newport Central Catholic, transferred to NKU from Atlantic Sun Conference foe Jacksonville. He is ineligible this year under NCAA transfer rules.

Ernest Watson puts up a shot during basketball practice last January at the Bank of Kentucky Center on the Northern Kentucky University campus. GARY LANDERS/FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

After returning from California, NKU will play at national power Ohio State in Columbus Dec. 1, then travel to Big 12 foe Texas Tech. Dec. 4. NKU’s first conference game is Dec. 31 at Jacksonville and first home game is Saturday, Jan. 5,

against USC Upstate. NKU was picked to finish 10th in the 10-team Atlantic Sun Conference. The men’s soccer team finished fourth in league play and the volleyball team was third after similar preseason naysaying. Whether the hoops squad can perform the same way, time will tell, but Bezold expects some early bumps in the road. Basketball is the main priority at the Atlantic Sun schools, as all but one (Jacksonville) do not have football. The NKU women’s team graduated one of its top alltime scorers in Casse Mogan. Freshman guard Christine Roush scored NKU’s first-ever Division I point against UC Nov. 9, and senior guard Jaimie Hamlet (Glen Este) had the school’s first D-I field goal. NKU is led by new head coach Dawn Plitzuweit, who was an assistant coach at Michigan last year and won a Division II national title at Grand Valley State. The NKU women were picked seventh in the ASun. The Norse play at Western Kentucky in Bowling Green Saturday, Nov.17, and at Loyola (Chicago) Nov. 21 before playing its first D-I home game Tuesday, Nov. 27, against Youngstown State.


TMC wraps memorable fall sports season

After one exciting weekend of highs and lows, the fall sports season came to an end at Thomas More College. The men’s and women’s soccer teams and the volleyball team ended their playoff runs. The cross country teams ran their final meet, and the football team wrapped up its season with a memorable performance. The cross county teams ended their season at the NCAA Mid-East Regional hosted by Dickinson College in Newville, Penn. The men’s team placed 31st, while the women’s team placed 43rd. The men were led by junior Matt Wurtzler (Roger Bacon) who finished 33rd with a time of 26:17.5. The women were paced by senior Celia Arlinghaus (Holy Cross) who placed 122nd with a time of 25:25.5. The soccer teams each had tough tournament draws. The men faced fifthranked Ohio Northern in the opening round of the NCAA tournament at Carnegie Mellon University in

Pittsburgh. Sophomore goalkeeper Matt Kees (Scott) gave up just one goal, but that was all the Polar Bears needed. The Saints were shutout, finishing their season 13-4-4. The men exceeded expectations this season, replacing six seniors from the 2011 PAC championship team including one All-American and three All-Region players. “We knew we could be good by the end of the year but these boys exceeded my wildest dreams,” said Saints head soccer coach Jeff Cummings. “They found ways to not lose games early in the year. Over the last five weeks they became a team that was great and fun to watch.” The women’s soccer team earned the school’s lone postseason win of the 2012 fall sports season. The Saints defeated No. 18 Augustana in the first round of the NCAA tournament at Washington University in St. Louis. The 16th-ranked Saints were led by freshman goalkeeper Abbie McBride, who posted a shutout. Senior defender

Abby Gindling (Seton) scored the lone goal of the match on a long strike in the 66th minute. “As the year progressed, Abbie became a great keeper,” said Cummings. “Going into the NCAA tourney she was leading the country in goals against average. That is a testament to her and our whole team’s commitment to defending.” Both cross country races and soccer matches took place on Saturday, Nov. 10. Only the women’s soccer team advanced, but the season was extended by just one day. On Sunday, Nov. 11, the Saints faced thirdranked Washington University-St. Louis. The Saints fell behind 2-0 before rallying to tie the match and force overtime. The Saints lost, 3-2, in the extra period. “This group always wanted to win and always thought they were going to win. Coming from two down against Wash U was a matter of us just fighting till the end,” said Cummings. “Most teams would fold when the second one was given up. These girls just keep pushing and found a

Make memories, not illness, this Thanksgiving When Americans gather to celebrate a holiday, it’s usually around a dining room table … or maybe a buffet line if there’s a really good game on that day. These gatherings can pose a health risk. More than 48 million people each year contract a food-borne illness, according to the Centers for Lynne Saddler Disease Control and PreCOMMUNITY vention. Of RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST those, 128,000 are hospitalized and an additional 3,000 die. You have probably heard these basic food safety messages repeatedly: keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold; wash your hands frequently and separate raw meats from ready-to-eat food items. Those messages are what we call Food Safety 101 in public health, so please do all of those. But to really keep everyone healthy after the meals, you also need to pay attention to Food Safety 201 as well. As we prepare to start celebr-eating, here are some tips from Food Safety 201, focusing on taking food prepared at home to another location and what to do once the meal is over.

Meals on wheels

Busy hosts and hostesses will often ask for their guests to bring a dish to the holiday meal. If you’re taking food along, make sure that you plan ahead on how to keep perishable foods at the right temperature. Coolers with ice and insulated bags should be used when needed. Make arrangements ahead of time with your hosts for how your food will be stored once you arrive, whether that’s reserving a burner on the stove, an outlet for your slow cooker or shelf space in the fridge. If your

host’s refrigerator is full and you need to keep a dish cold, use the cooler you brought it in with ice, or place food in cooler outside, provided the air temp is below 40.

Leftover logistics

We tend to want to relax after our holiday meal ends, especially if we’ve spent all day preparing it. Hold off until you’ve made sure that the leftovers are put away properly. Please note: This task can be delegated to the table-clearing or dish-washing crew if you’re really wiped out! Any perishable food needs to be eaten or put away within two hours. Food safety experts recommend that leftovers be cooled to 41 degrees Fahrenheit within four hours. If the food is still quite hot when you’re cleaning up, store it uncovered in the refrigerator until it’s cool and then cover it. Help soups and similar foods cool by adding a few ice cubes and stirring. Large portions take longer to cool, so it’s wise to split leftovers into individual portions when putting them away. Eat your leftovers within seven days, though three to four is best. The website has some great recipes for leftover turkey and ham if you need ideas. Once you are ready to eat those leftovers, make sure you heat the food to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Gathering around the table at the holidays is a time to make memories. Paying attention to Food Safety 101 and 201 will help everyone leave their holiday gatherings with memories of the hilarious stories an uncle told or the crazy new boyfriend a sister brought home – and not an aching belly or queasy stomach. Dr. Lynne Saddler is district director of health of the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Letter: Thank you

At last the voting machines are stored away, the political signs are coming down, the winners are happy and the losers are wondering what went wrong. However, the election could not be held without the tremendous effort of the 300 plus poll workers in Campbell County. I want to thank these men and women who got to the polls at 5:15 in the morning and many were still there at seven that night. They conducted an almost perfect election at the polls and the citizens of Campbell County thank them for their service. I also want to thank my deputies who were at the polls at 5:15 a.m. and many times during the day to assist the poll workers and then came into the office to help collect and count the votes. Their efforts helped this office run a very smooth election. A special thanks to Sheriff Dave Fickenscher and his deputies for their fine work in patrolling the polls and assisting in returning the results to the

election office. This truly was a team effort, one the citizens of Campbell County can be proud of. Jack Snodgrass

Trash for Cash

Bishop Brossart High School boys soccer program wanted to give back by picking up trash in our community. About 35 soccer players and 20 parents divided up, given bags,vests and gloves, walking 10 miles cleaning up Alexandria. They started out early walking, cleaning and bonding at the same time. It was great for the team as well as the families that lived along the roads. This showed our boys how carelessly people had thrown out their garbage and effects a lot of people. They worked hard together and was proud at the end of how the area looked and should look! Thank you for this great experience and we look forward to giving next year.

Stop the spread of drug epidemic

On Sept. 22, I received an email from a grieving mother in Oldham County who had lost a child to a prescription drug overdose. Her daughter died at a friend’s house after mixing the drug Opana with other substances. She was just 16 years old. I have received many of these letters and grieved with far too many parents Jack Conway devastated by the scourge of COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST prescription COLUMNIST drug abuse. I vowed to each one of these families that I would do everything I could to stop the spread of this epidemic. Through landmark prescription drug abuse legislation, my Prescription Drug Diversion Task Force and my Keep Kentucky Kids Safe awareness initiative, we are making progress. Over the past decade, prescriptions for powerful painkillers have soared, making Kentucky the third most medicated state in the nation. Last year, 219 million doses of hydrocodone were dispensed in Kentucky – that’s 51 doses for every man, woman and child in this state. While some irresponsible doctors handed out pain pills like candy, prescription pain-killer abuse rose 900 percent, overdose deaths doubled and we’ve seen an alarming 2,400 percent increase in the number of babies born addicted to pain killers. Since House Bill 1 (HB 1) took effect on July 20, fewer of these highly addictive controlled substances are being dispensed, marking the first reduction in a decade. Doctors are now re-

quired to utilize the Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting (KASPER) system to separate legitimate pain sufferers from doctor shoppers. Today, KASPER has nearly 22,000 registered users, requesting more than 18,000 reports each day, most of which are returned in a matter of seconds. Rogue pain clinics are closing up shop in Kentucky. Unable to comply with the new law, 10 pain management clinics have closed their doors. And the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure (KBML) has disciplined 35 physicians for prescribing violations. 10 faced emergency orders of suspension and five surrendered their licenses. Under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) drafted by my office, we are working hand-in-hand with the medical licensure boards, Kentucky State Police (KSP) and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) to share information to identify the most egregious cases of illegal or inappropriate prescribing. Our MOU created a centralized database for boards like KBML to share their complaints regarding illegal or inappropriate prescribing with law enforcement. The system has processed 41 complaints since July. We are also working together to address a few unintended consequences of HB 1 and will be taking a look at exemptions for long-term care facilities and in-patient hospital services. Our goal is to weed out the very bad actors and ensure patients have the best care possible. Additionally, we are continuing to work closely with local law enforcement through my statewide drug diversion task

force to go after these rogue pain clinics and unscrupulous doctors – doctors like Richard Albert, who prescribed more than 105,000 prescription pills per month at his Paintsville clinic with little to no examination of his patients. Dr. Albert pled guilty last summer to federal charges of conspiring to illegally distribute and dispense controlled substances.

Keep Kentucky Kids Safe

Awareness and education continue to be key components of our effort to combat prescription drug abuse. Since I launched the Keep Kentucky Kids Safe program in 2010 with concerned parents, state partners and law enforcement agencies, I’ve warned more than 15,000 middle and high school students across the state about the dangers of abusing prescription pills. We are also listening to what students have to say about this issue through our annual Keep Kentucky Kids Safe video public service announcement (PSA) contest. Please encourage a middle or high school student in your life to create a 30-second video PSA and enter it into our competition by Dec. 7. The winner will receive an Apple iPad. Details are available at http:// Finally, if you haven’t already done so, please make sure to lock up and monitor prescription medications in the home and safely dispose of unneeded medications through drop boxes or take-back events. Working together, we can win the war against prescription drug abuse. Jack Conway is attorney general of Kentucky.

‘Kentucky Cured,’ 50 years of journalism “Kentucky Cured” by legendary Kentucky journalist Al Smith is the book his followers, fans and friends wanted. It’s a compilation of narratives and opinions mostly about the influFerrell ential KentuckWellman ians who provided direction COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST for the state COLUMNIST over the past 75 years. Some of Smith’s observations were written especially for this book. Others first were published in the Lexington HeraldLeader and The Courier-Journal. “Wordsmith,” Smith’s autobiography released in 2011, described his whiskey-sotted arrival in Russellville in 1957 after he’d lost his reporting job at a New Orleans newspaper. Smith eventually would own the Russellville paper and several others and become the host of KET’s long-running public affairs program, “Comment on Kentucky.” “Wordsmith” included a riveting account of Smith’s struggles with the bottle and his recovery from alcoholism. But the gloves rarely came off when he wrote about the powerful and rich-and-famous with whom he rubbed shoulders over the past half-century. “Kentucky Cured” corrects that, and is proof, at 85, Smith can still bite when he turns a phrase. “In a state like Kentucky,” Smith writes, “leadership often

falls to political hacks or fresh faces with painless promises, which fail.” Smith’s activism surfaces when he blisters Kentucky lawmakers who “remain mired in the ignorance and bigotry of our sorry past.” The author clearly misses the deal-making political progressives who ran the state, often from smoky backrooms, until a few decades ago. He praises their accomplishments but also provides critical evaluations of their complicated lives and careers. Smith observes that former governor and senator A.B. “Happy” Chandler was “the leading cheerleader of his own fan club.” Another former governor and senator, Earle C. Clements, is described as “cold and unforgiving.” Education reformer and Roosevelt “Whiz Kid” Edward F. Prichard was “overly infatuated with his own biting wit, and not careful about debt.” Grandsons of the powerful are “chips off the giant oaks.” Smith’s essays clearly reflect his belief Washington should help people do what they can’t do for themselves. Journalists who appeared on his Comment program have debated whether Smith is a Roosevelt “New Dealer” or a Johnson

“Great Society Democrat.” “Kentucky Cured” provides support for both sides, and his book again reveals his appreciation for the powerful who struggle to help the powerless. Smith tackles more than politics. His topics range from black history in Louisiana to the heroes of World War II. He’s at his best when writing about those who never sought the spotlight but “switch on the stage lights for great performances.” Smith’s respect for Russellville and Logan County runs throughout his work; not surprising, since it’s where “the cure” started. He needs only three pages in Chapter 1 to get to his political mentor, Logan County political boss Emerson “Doc” Beauchamp. The book would have benefited from more aggressive editing. The reprinted columns occasionally repeat information. The revered Southeastern Conference becomes South Eastern. The years for Martha Layne Collins’ term as governor are wrong. Happy Chandler’s title during his baseball years is never exactly right, and there are a few others. But they’re minor and don’t get in the way of the book’s goal; recognizing people who did the right thing. I’ve written before that Al Smith has informed, cajoled, agitated and entertained us. He does that again in “Kentucky Cured.” That’s why this is the book his fans wanted. Ferrell Wellman, a former reporter for WAVE-TV in Louisville, is the host of KET’s “Comment on Kentucky,” founded by Al Smith.

Both lime and sulfur take several months to raise or lower soil pH, so fall Mike is a good Klahr time to apply HORTICULTURE CONCERNS whichever one is needed. By garden planting time in the spring, hopefully the soil pH will be properly modified. Lawns should be fertilized primarily from September to December. Landscape trees and shrubs need to be fertilized in late November or early March. Fruit trees and bush fruits should be fertilized in February. Phosphorus and potassium can be applied to flower beds and vegetable gardens in the fall, but wait until spring to apply nitrogen to gardens, or else the rains and melting snow will leach it below the rooting area. However, if manure will be used on a garden or berry

Soil test now for 2012 garden

Question: Do you recommend testing the soil now for spring gardens and flower plantings? Answer: Yes, fall is a good time to take soil samples for nutrient and pH testing. Fall sampling will often result in a faster return of results and recommendations from the University of Kentucky’s Soil Testing Lab. If your soil is too acid, it will need lime to raise the pH. If the soil is too alkaline or basic, sulfur may be needed to lower the pH. About two-thirds of the lawn, garden and landscape soil samples brought in to the Boone County Extension Office have pH levels that are already higher than needed for optimum plant growth. Many of these would benefit from the application of sulfur, whereas lime would actually be harmful if added. Therefore, lime (and wood ashes as well) should never be added to soil unless a soil test reveals the need.

Sixth annual ‘Unchained’ encourages shopping local Community Recorder Locally owned businesses across Greater Cincinnati will join together to urge residents to support the city’s indepen-

dent businesses by shopping locally-only Saturday, Nov. 17. As part of Cincinnati Unchained, a shop-local event throughout Greater Cincinnati, participating businesses are asking residents to take one day to shop, dine out, and do other business only with locally-owned independent business. More than 60 businesses are participating in this year's Cincinnati Unchained, from throughout the Tristate. In addition to offering special, one-day only Unchained deals, neighborhood businesses will be giving away gift baskets filled with goodies from participating local businesses. All shoppers need to do to enter is visit local businesses throughout the day. A complete list of specials can be found at As in past years, BuyCincy is partnering with Crafty Supermarket, Cin-

cinnati’s largest independent craft show, to help expand Cincinnati Unchained. The Crafty Supermarket, also held Nov. 17 at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center, will have a shopper’s passport in the back of the program (also available at Shoppers can have their passport stamped at Unchained businesses -- once the passport is full, they can turn it in at any Unchained business to be entered into a raffle for gift baskets filled with items from participating businesses. This is the sixth year of Unchained, held as part of the “Shift Your Shopping” the new national campaign of the American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA). In “Shift Your Shopping,” AMIBA works with advocates for local, independent business to encourage citizens to make a “shift” by buying from local, independent businesses for the holiday season. More than 140 local business alliances across the U.S. and Canada, collectively representing more than 38,000 locally owned and independent businesses, are participating in the campaign. “Each year, the partici-

pation and excitement in Cincinnati Unchained grows," says Sean Fisher, BuyCincy co-founder and creative director. “It’s become not only a day to support our local businesses, but a day-long celebration of them and of our Greater Cincinnati community.” According to studies cited by AMIBA, campaigns to support local independent businesses result in a strong 7.2 percent revenue increase over the previous year, despite slow economic growth across the nation. Supporting local businesses also means strong returns to the local economy--recent studies found independent restaurants generated an average of 2.15 times more direct local economic return. “Independent businesses are an integral part of our local economy,” says Kurt Myers, co-founder and business director of BuyCincy, "and they’re often our friends and neighbors, too. By supporting local businesses, we support the growth of our community and our region.” For a full list of participating businesses and more information, please visit unchained.
