BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

2,000 families assisted with spay/neuter costs By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

The Friends of the Shelter organization has reached a milestone in their efforts to bring low cost spay/neuter services to Northern Kentucky pets. More than 2,000 families were provided financial assistance during 2011 for the procedures. Friends of the Shelter offers vouchers that pet owners may use with their local vets and also provides transports to low cost spay/neuter clinics. Friends president Bonnie Ravenscraft, of Florence, said vouchers, which can be given for cats or dogs, are good for the face value of the voucher. That amount is then taken off the bill. The voucher is sent back to the organization which pays for it, she said. They started giving vouchers to keep “the puppies and kittens out of the shelters and it has worked,” Ravenscraft said. United Coalition for Animals and Ohio Alley Cat Rescue participate in the program. This is the largest amount of people they’ve helped in a year, she said. Next year, Ravenscraft said she doesn’t know if that number will increase, but the organization will try to match it. “It does take take quite a bit of money and we’re primarily working through donations,” she said. The program is an important one because “it does help keep an-

The low cost services are critical to the shelter’s efforts to save more lives, said Jan Chapman, treasurer of the Friends group. “The birth of more kittens and puppies means that those already

awaiting homes in local shelters are less likely to find one,” she said. “Some areas of the country have done such a good job of spaying and neutering their animals that they often have a shortage of adoptable animals.” The Friends organization

works primarily with shelters in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties. Families needing financial assistance for spay/neuter services can contact 859-282-9084 for more information.

Hebron Scouts help jail ministry By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

Local Cub Scouts got into the holiday spirit with two December service projects - and learned about giving to others in the process. Cub Scout Pack 227, a Hebron-based home school group of 34 that includes students who live all over the Tristate, worked with Bridge Community Church in Wilder on the projects. Working with Kentucky Jail Ministries, Scouts and their families put together approximately 2,000 stockings for prisoners in Boone, Kenton, Campbell and Grant counties in addition to collecting nearly 40 large bags of canned and dry goods and toiletries as part of a “Scouting for Food” project which they combined with a similar effort by the church. Cubmaster Jeanette Tacon of

Hebron-based Cub Scout pack 227 did two service projects in December where they collected food and other items to be distributed to needy families and also stuffed stockings for local prisoners. Some group members are pictured during a Memorial Day service project at Mother of God Cemetery in Latonia. THANKS TO JEANETTE TACON Hebron said as a home school group, they don’t really have a school at which to meet. One member of the group and his family goes to the church, which lets the group meet there. The pack asked the church what they could do for the

church in return, she said. “Really, both projects are things the church does,” Tacon said. The stockings, put together in about 90 minutes, included a pair of socks, candy canes and a pamphlet regarding faith and

the church. The church provided the items to the Scout unit. “We just put it all together,” Tacon said. One of the things Scouting in general teaches is “to be a good citizen, you have to take care of your community,” Tacon said. These projects teach them to take care of people on every level, she said. In the case of the stockings, it was an opportunity to teach the Scouts to take care of others regardless of the situation, Tacon said. It also taught the boys “about what is right and wrong and making good decisions,” she said. While the group strives to do several service projects a year, they typically change what they do, but they will ask the church again what they can do, Tacon said.

Social media latest crime-fighting tool By Nancy Daly ndaly@nky.com

Vandals in the Triple Crown subdivision caused about $4,000 in damage to light fixtures, strands of lights and wreaths around New Year’s Eve. They caused ruts in the grass and removed a stop sign, spreading damage throughout the neighborhood. Deputy Mike Gross, described as one of the more “tech savvy” members of Boone County Sheriff’s Office, wanted neighborhood help to capture the vandals. So on Jan. 6 the sheriff’s

department asked Facebook members for information about the case. According to Boone County sheriff’s spokesman Tom Scheben, the department hopes people with information will contact Gross directly at 334-2175 or mgross@boonecounty ky.org. Boone County joins a growing number of police agencies using social media to interact with the public. “They’re our eyes and ears in the neighborhood so we’ll take advantage of that,” Scheben said. Lt. David Jude has overseen Kentucky State Police’s social media efforts for three years. KSP has 36,488 Facebook followers and is considered a leader nationally. “We’ve had cases solved off of Facebook,” Jude said.

By Stephanie Salmons You may know the name, but how much do you know about the man? “Carl Kiger: The Man Beyond the Murder,” the recently published book by Rabbit Hash author Robert Schrage, explores the life and background of Carl Kiger. Kiger was a prominent Covington politician in the 1930s and 1940s and the city’s vice Schrage mayor. He and his 6-year-old son Jerry were shot to death at the family’s Rosegate Farm – located on Dixie Highway close to Richwood – Kiger’s wife, Jennie Kiger, was also wounded. According to the book’s preface, written by Bridget Striker, Boone County Public Library’s local history coordinator, Jennie Kiger and the couple’s daughter Joan, 15 when the murders occurred, were indicted for the “willful murders” of Carl and Jerry. Joan went to trial first for the death of her brother and was acquitted. After-

ward, charges against her mother were dropped. The murder trial was “certainly one of the biggest murder trials in Northern Kentucky,” Schrage said. A lot has been written about the murder “but nobody knew anything about the murder victim, Carl Kiger,” he said. Kiger was one of the most powerful politicians in Northern Kentucky at the time, both popular and controversial, Schrage said. “Then right when he achieved the height of his political success, he was murdered,” he said. Schrage said he was interested that Kiger came from the “sort of the same neighborhood” he did – Kiger was born and raised on the west end of Covington while Schrage was born on the east end of Ludlow. “But I’ve always been very interested in history and politics and this book has both of them,” Schrage said. “I mean it’s got tremendous Northern Kentucky history in it.” He was not only intrigued by the time period but he wanted to find out what Kiger stood for, Schrage said. The book explains the issues important to Kiger

FLORENCE — Rick Hatfield was worried about his golf skills diminishing over the winter until his instructor told him to visit World of Golf. The Anderson Township resident travels to Florence twice a week to practice his swing and keep his game sharp. “This is the perfect place for when it’s cold,” Hatfield said. Hatfield isn’t the only one taking advantage of the facility’s indoor amenities. “We had an unbelievable amount of interest starting in December,” said manager Ralph Landrum. World of Golf offers a simulator, driving range with swing analyzer, putting green and instruction area all indoors. “What we’re seeing here is a whole new type of customer,” Landrum said. The indoor amenities are drawing in serious golfers, like Hatfield, who tended to stay away from the family friendly, par three course. “The traffic on the simulator has picked up,” Landrum said. The simulator lets golfers play digital versions of famous courses all over the world and World of Golf has started offering simulator leagues. “Everybody who’s done it seems to have really enjoyed it,” Landrum said. The other area where business has really picked

up is private lessons. “I’m still giving 20 to 25 golf lessons a week,” Landrum said. In the old facility private lessons essentially stopped when the temperature dropped, but this year lessons just kept going, he said. Even before the winter weather rolled in, World of Golf was welcoming a lot of visitors, Landrum said. Since the facility opened in March, over 48,000 paid to play a game of miniature golf, he said. The financial reports agree with what Landrum is seeing, said Linda Chapman, finance director for the city of Florence. In the past, the facility brought in less money than it earned. City leaders treated the golf course like other parks, which are subsidized by the city. When planning the new facility, city leaders wanted something that would drive up revenues. “It seems to be holding its own,” Chapman said. Factoring out the onetime expenses that went with opening the new facility, World of Golf is nearly breaking even, she said. “Which is pretty good for up there,” Chapman said. Expenses have gone up because of the larger facility, but revenues have greatly increased, bringing the balance close to even, she said.

Former cleaning lady sentenced to life By Brenna R. Kelly bkelly@nky.com

A former cleaning lady who kidnapped a Hebron millionaire, duct taped him to a chair in her basement and burned his body when he died, stood silent Jan. 4 as a judge sentenced her to life in prison. Willa Blanc, 50, who pleaded guilty last month to avoid the chance of being sentenced to death if convicted, will not be eligible for parole. Under state law, kidnapping someone who is not released alive carries the same penalty as capital murder. That allows prose-

cutors to seek the death penalty or life in prison even if they can’t prove the victim was murdered. Blanc expressed no remorse in court for the death of 73-year-old Walter Sartory. Commonwealth’s attorney Linda Tally Smith said she has not shown any remorse to date. “There’s a difference between feeling bad for what happened and feeling bad for the fact that you got caught,” she said. “She’s a very proud person, and I think in her own mind she’s found justification.” Sartory’s burned body was found in March 2009 in Indiana, about two weeks after friends from an Internet bulletin board reported him missing. Another friend from the bulletin board drove eight hours to see Blanc sent to prison. “He deserved some representation,” said Elizabeth Kearley, of Charlotte, N.C., who met Sartory on-

line 16 years ago. Sartory, who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and had a severe social phobia, had no immediate family. “He had a heart of gold. He had no reason to be killed like that,” Kearley said. Five of Blanc’s family members attended the hearing. Her niece, Dorthea Smith, of Westwood, stood while Boone Circuit Judge Tony Frohlich imposed the sentence. “She’s a very nice person, loving,” said Smith. “Right or wrong, she took responsibility for her actions and she did it with pride and I’m proud of her.” Blanc’s attorneys, public defenders Joanne Lynch and James Gibson, did not want to comment. After Sartory’s death, Blanc used forged documents to raid his bank accounts, getting more than $200,000. Blanc’s son, Louis Wilkinson, 30, is also charged

in the case and is scheduled to stand trial later this month. “Unfortunately, Walter Sartory died at the hands of two people because they were greedy,” Tally Smith said. “It was unadulterated greed.” Sartory, a retired scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, worked hard, saved his money and invested it wisely. He had at least $2 million when he died. “It’s extremely sad, and it demonstrates that some people’s greed can cause them to do things that none of us could ever imagine,” Tally Smith said. Sartory met Blanc in 2008 when she cleaned his neighbor’s home. In the weeks before his disappearance, Sartory told friends that he thought Blanc was trying to scam him and even changed his locks fearing that she had picked up his key. Investigators believe

that Sartory was taken to the basement of Blanc’s Union home in mid-February and died about a week later. That’s when, investigators say, Blanc and Wilkinson, drove the body to Indiana in a 50-gallon plastic trash can and told friends they needed to burn a dead dog. Sartory’s friends in Virginia, who he had met on the bulletin board, reported him missing on Feb. 26, launching an investigation that involved more than 25 sheriff’s deputies, but by that time, he was already dead. Kearley said the group formed on the Prodigy bulletin board had become Sartory’s family. Kearley never met Sartory in person, and only talked to him once on the phone, but he felt like family. Since he moved to Hebron about a year before his death, Sartory had been in therapy and had been in-

teracting with people more. “He had spent his life avoiding social situations because of the fact he was distrustful of other human beings,” Smith said. “The first time that he basically opened himself up to someone who was a stranger to him, it resulted in his death.” As part of her plea, Blanc agreed to sit down with Tally Smith and two detectives to clear up remaining questions in the case. She had hoped it would help prosecutors decide how to proceed against Wilkinson. But Tally Smith said the hours-long interview was “not productive” while still meeting the terms of the agreement. “It’s clear that she’s found a way to try to describe the events in a way that paints her in a better light,” she said. “But unfortunately the facts speak for themselves.”

Three jobs not enough for Union woman

Schneider gives time to archery, German exchange program By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

UNION — Anyone who thinks he is busy should compare schedules with Susan Schneider. Schneider, of Union, practices home health care as a registered nurse, drives a bus for Boone County Schools and works at J.C. Penney. In addition to the three jobs, Schneider is the archery coach at Gray Middle School, a co-coordinator of the Union-Wermelkirchen Cultural Exchange – a German exchange student program at Ryle, a PTA member at Ryle and a regional judge for Odyssey of the Mind. Schneider credits her involvement in so many things to having a child-like nature. “I never grew up,” she said.

Her aim was never to be involved with so many things, but her kids were active and she wanted to be a part of what they were doing. “They really liked to be involved in a lot of things,” Schneider said. Even after her youngest child graduated high school, Schneider wanted to stay involved with everything. “It makes you feel good because it is time well spent,” she said. When Schneider gets involved, she doesn’t just dabble, but she goes all in – which can involve taking her archery team to state competition seven straight years or even taking legal guardianship of a German student whose host family’s job losses meant they could no longer support an ex-

change student so the student could finish the program. This summer Schneider was recognized by the Kentucky PTA as the Outstanding Classified Personnel of the Year winner. While the recipients of Schneider’s time get benefits, she believes everything she does helps her too. “I was evolving just like them,” she said. Schneider is often asked how she’s able to keep up with so much on her plate. “Anyone who knows me knows my house reflects that I’m never home,” she said. But as long as she can still contribute, Schneider plans to stay involved.

The purpose of the Boone County Youth Cabinetis to improve the county’s ability to positively affect the lives of young people and better coordinate our community's efforts and services for young people. The group is comprised of juniors from each high school in the county and is coordinated by the Boone County Human Services Department under the Fiscal Court.

Longbranch students demonstrate generosity Community Recorder Longbranch Elementary School showed its holiday spirit. In the past two months, the students collected items for Wilbur’s Pantry, Welcome House, and United Ministries. Plus, students made and sold 1,243 Reindeer Lollipops; they donated the $621.50 they raised to the local Cops and Kids holiday shopping program. Students earned money by doing chores so they could help Northern Kentucky Cold Shelter residents. With this money, students bought Mc Donald’s gift cards so shelter residents could have a place to go and eat during

times when the shelter is closed. Students in kindergarten up through fifth grade have been involved in these service learning projects. They have learned about poverty, hunger, homelessness and unemployment. Students have practiced counting and adding items that have been collected, charted items using a can to represent each set of 10 items collected, discussed animal habitats and needs, and practiced running a business. Throughout the year, parents, teachers, administrators, and students have made a commitment to help people by implementing service learning projects.

» Thomas More College Head Football Coach Jim Hilvert hired former Saints and Conner High School standout quarterback Trevor Stellman as TMC offense coordinator. Stellman replaces Brian Sheehan, who has been named head coach at Defiance College. In addition to coaching the quarterbacks the past two seasons, Stellman has also served as the recruiting coordinator for the team. During his two years tutoring the quarterbacks the Saints have passed for 3,906 yards and 35 touchdowns. “I’m excited for this opportunity to be the offensive coordinator at a place that is dear to my heart,” said Stellman. “I’m ready to help our student-athletes reach their full potential and shed a great light on the Thomas More football family and community.” Stellman, who was a four-year letter-winner as a quarterback at Thomas More, set numerous passing records as he graduated with the most touchdown passes in a game (four), season (26) and career (44), and was second in career passing yardage (5,328) and season passing yardage (2,032). He also finished his career ninth in career rushing yardage with 1,350 yards. » Ryle 2008 graduate Morgan McLeish is a senior guard on the Taylor University women’s basketball team.

Brady wins twice for Cooper Jaguars By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BOONE COUNTY — The Cooper High School girls swimming team finished fourth in the Scott Eagle Swim Classic Jan. 7 at Scott High School in Taylor Mill. The Jaguars finished behind traditional powers Notre Dame, Beechwood and Highlands in the girls standings. Cooper finished high on the strength of sophomore Sharli Brady, who had two dominating event wins. Brady won the 200-yard individual medley, which combines all four major swimming strokes, in 2 minutes, 11.15, a nearly five-second victory over Notre Dame's Olivia Kuykendall. Brady then won the 500 freestyle in 5:05.77 for a 20-second victory over second place. Her time was about six seconds off the meet record by University of Michigan standout Emily Brunemann. Cooper was third in the 200 medley relay, which also has all four strokes, with Brady, Samantha Bosshammer, Megan Kern and Brooke Harkrader. They were second in the the 200 free relay with Harkrader, Brady, Bosshammer and Michael Smith. Bosshammer was eighth in the 200 freestyle and fifth in the 100 backstroke. Michaela Smith was fifth in the 50 free and Harkrader seventh. Smith was fourth in the 100 free. Ryle's Katie Clements was fifth in the 200 freestyle. Taylor Piatt was fourth in the 100 butterfly. The Ryle boys were fifth in the 200 medley relay and fourth in the 400 free relay. Tommy Jennings was fourth in the 50 free. T.J. Albright was fourth in the 500 free and second in the 100 back. Covington Catholic junior Max Williamson had a dominant performance at the Scott Eagle Swim Classic, breaking two long-standing meet records and helping the Colonels to the boys team title. The meet was the first of the season with all the Northern Kentucky teams together. “This meet tells you how things are going and what you need to get better at,” he said. “Our team is grow-

ing really close. We're going for that state title. We haven't got it in 23 years so it's about time to go get it. Our goal today was whenever we had a Cov Cath boy in a heat, they're taking the top spot.” Williamson, the defending state champion in the individual medley, didn't swim that event Saturday, as he was limited to freestyle events because of his injury. Instead, he gave the 200-yard freestyle a whirl and swam it in 1 minute, 43.68 seconds. That broke a 17-year-old meet record by Nate Dusing, the former Olympic medalist and NCAA Swimmer of the Year at Texas. Williamson also broke a 10-year-old record in the 500 free and helped CCH break the meet record in the 400 free relay.

“Max can swim in any race and win any race,” Dickmann said. “The amazing thing is he was practicing at 6 a.m. and he still came out and set three records.” Cov Cath won all11events contested. Senior Hunter Pasek won the butterfly and the backstroke. Freshman Robbie Newman took the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. Sophomore Chase Vennefron won the 200 individual medley and freshman Mikey Summe the 100 freestyle. Williamson, Newman, Vennefron, Pasek and Sam Mullen all had two relay wins. James Weber/The Community Recorder Summe and Zach Smith had one relay win each. Notre Dame won its 14th straight Scott Classic title. Senior Caitlyn Forman was most outstanding swimmer. She won the backstroke and butterfly and was part of two of NDA's three winning relays. Mackenzie Margroum won the100 free and 200 free and was on two relays. Younger Pandas Lilly Morgan, Olivia Kuykendall, Julia Johnson, Alex Smith and Jessica Peck were also part of the winning relays and had high individual finishes. The Scott Diving Classic will be Saturday, Jan. 14. See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/blogs/preps, www. facebook.com/presspreps or visit James on Twitter at @RecorderWeber.

Library bill addresses accountability Tuesday, Jan. 3, marked the first day of the first week of the 2012 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, and the order of the day consisted of housekeeping matters, including bill filings and resolutions. One of my filed bills addresses libraries and the lack of accountability to taxpayers. Currently, county fiscal courts can only appoint library board members from a list generated from the Department of Libraries and Archives. These appointed bodies have authority to increase taxes and my proposal would allow elected officials to appoint members who they believe will represent the interests of taxpayers and the libraries they will serve. This session will be dominated by the budget and redistricting,

along with a list of other issues that will surely surface. We will be tasked with crafting a bi-annual budget and has real expectations of being John one of the most Schickel challenging COMMUNITY budget sessions RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST to date. Currently, the state budget is structurally unbalanced and any increases in bonding or debt will guarantee harsh burdens to future generations. I will not support any measures to increase state debt or bonds. As chairman of the Licensing, Occupations, & Administrative Regulations Committee, I am

committed to finding solutions to support Kentucky’s small business owners. In order to jumpstart the economy, we must find ways to reduce government regulations and create an environment of pro-growth. Following this past holiday season, I am happy to return and prepared to tackle the issues facing the commonwealth of Kentucky. I am looking forward to meeting many of you in Frankfort and hearing about issues that are important to you. Please feel free to leave messages toll-free by dialing 1-800-372-7181 or TTY 1-800896-0305. You can also find us on www.lrc.state.ky.us. As always, I am honored to represent the 11th Senate District and welcome my Northern Kentucky friends to our State’s Capitol.

In 2011 it was announced that Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum purveyors, planned to build Noah’s Ark, a theme park. Both are based on a literal biblical interpretation of a less than 10,000-year-old Earth. Much hubbub ensued as the state of Kentucky suggested favorable tax breaks for this jobcreating enterprise. It involved the pesky matter in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution that takes a dim view in the establishment clause of government support of religion. Loud voices were heard supporting and decrying the legalities of state monies supporting this religion-based park. This being a gubernatorial election year, Gov. Steve Beshear granted generous state aid for the park.

At the same time no notice was paid to a gratuitous swipe at science by Mike Zovath, a senior vicepresident of Answers in GeneNancy sis. He said, “I Rowles do not believe in COMMUNITY global warmRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST ing.” Mr. Zovath has the right to believe in any god and religion he chooses. Irrefutable data from peer-reviewed science prove that the earth is warming beyond a shadow on a doubt. Mr. Zovath confused faith with fact-based science. “Believing” has nothing to do with it. Only hubris could dismiss a world of credible, serious scientists who labor at their

laboratory benches for decades and decades with a dismissive seven-word sentence as if that were the last word on the subject. Pity our beloved nation if it lacks respect for science and the scientific method. Double pity if young, bright students are discouraged from healthy inquiry as they are brainwashed with simplistic answers that find no validity in reality. They are forced to fit everything into the fictional paradigm of Creationism. At a time when our nation needs to be aware of the threats of climate change as evidenced by horrific weather-related incidents around the globe this year and its ability to do something about it, many elected officials promised fewer restraints on carbon dioxide emissions and less money for energy innovation.

Compare that with taxpayer money for a creationism theme park! It is to be hoped, with little evidence so far, that climate change deniers, for one agenda or another, will come to their senses to help the country wake up to real science while living the messages of their particular sacred Scriptures, without conflating the two. Mr. Zovath would not consult a scientist on matters of faith. He would do well not to make foolish pronouncements about science. It gives religion a bad name especially for the enlightened who embrace religion and science, not religion vs. science. As Alexander Pope wrote in 1733, “Hope springs eternal.”

State Sen. John Schickel, R-Union, represents the 11th District including Boone, Gallatin, and Boone counties.

Senate targets allergy medicines again Bring out your hankies – the 2012 General Assembly convened just this week and already social engineers are in full swing. They’ve revived the “snot tax” from last year. SB 50 will require consumers have a prescription for “any compound, mixture or preparation containing any detectable amount of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine.” In case you don’t recognize the chemical names, just think Advil Cold & Sinus, Allegra-D, Claritin-D, Mucinex D, Sudafed and similar medicines you probably have in your medicine cabinet right now. Today, you can run down to the pharmacy and ask the staff to pull your favorite allergy medicine from behind the counter. Soon you’ll begin breathing again, your scratchy throat will ease up and your eyes will quit tearing. You’ll have to show your driver’s license and you can only get so much each

month, but that’s pretty much the process. The reason you have any restrictions now is because the chemicals that Emily give us so much Shelton relief are also key ingredients COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST in the producCOLUMNIST tion of methamphetamine, an addictive drug that is ravaging many Kentucky communities. Limiting the number of purchases any individual can make is an attempt to make it harder to produce meth. But that’s not working, so legislators from the hardest hit regions of the state want to require a prescription for the pill forms of these medicines. If this law passes, you’ll first have to take time to get to your doctor for each and every mem-

ber of your family who needs these remedies and pay the deductible for the office visit before you can even go to the drug store. The cost of more office visits and prescriptions will contribute to rising costs for health insurance companies, further increasing the chances your premiums will go up or coverage will be dropped entirely. The Republican-led state Senate has pulled out all the stops. They’ve removed Sen. Jack Westwood from the Judiciary Committee and replaced him with someone who will support SB 50. They put this bill on the fast track: the Judiciary Committee will consider it next Thursday, Jan. 12. To get the buy-in of senators who might otherwise vote against SB 50 once it reaches the Senate floor, the bill exempts liquid forms (liquids and gel-caps). But meth can be made from the liquid form, so the law would inconvenience

citizens for no good reason. (Consumers overwhelmingly prefer the pill form over the more expensive liquid forms.) And next year, when it’s obvious that the meth producers are happy as clams, legislators will move to add liquid forms in the legislation. “Prosecute criminals, not lawabiding citizens,” says Sen. John Schickel, who represents Boone, Gallatin and part of Kenton counties and sees the bill as an affront to personal freedom. Some senators agree. SB 79 was filed on Jan. 5 that would prohibit individuals who have been convicted of crimes related to methamphetamine or anhydrous ammonia from buying these drugs. To send your legislator a message about this or other bills, call 1-800-372-7181. Emily Shelton of Burlington is with the Grassroots Tea Party in Boone County.

Successes noted in the attorney general’s office It was a tremendous honor to be sworn in on Jan. 2 for a second term as Kentucky’s 49th attorney general. Despite unprecedented budget cuts, my staff and I have accomplished a great deal. We have not only maintained the mission critical functions of this office, we have implemented many new initiatives that reflect my commitment to standing up for Kentucky families. My staff and I would like to share some of the highlights of our many accomplishments over

Busy first week to legislative session We gathered in Frankfort this past week for the beginning of the 60-day session of the General Assembly, and we have much work to do. The week started with the swearing in of our newest member, Rep. Regina Bunch of Williamsburg. Rep. Bunch won a Special Election in December to serve out the term of her husband Dewayne Bunch, who was injured while breaking up a fight at the school where he works. We continue to pray for Dewayne’s recovery, and also for Regina as she prepares for her first session. On Wednesday we gathered in joint session with the Senate to Sal hear GoverSantoro nor BeCOMMUNITY shear’s State RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST of the Commonwealth Address, and the news he delivered was not good. During the governor’s speech, he discussed more potential cuts in state agencies and services as we seek to keep Kentucky’s financial house in order during these lean times. The governor also touched upon the issue of expanded gaming, a subject that has been debated in many past session. Beshear is pushing for a constitutional amendment that would let you decide whether to allow expanded gaming in Kentucky. It remains to be seen whether a bill on expanded gaming will be passed this session. The week ended with discussion on redistricting. On Thursday the House State Government Committee passed proposed redistricting maps for congressional and judicial districts based on the latest population data from the U.S. Census. The congressional proposal presented by the Speaker of the House would shift several counties in the eastern part of the Fourth District, including the city of Ashland, to the Fifth Congressional District. Their plan also moves Owensboro from the Second to the First Congressional District, and shift several counties currently in the Fifth and Sixth Districts to the Second Congressional District. The Senate is expected to present its own congressional plan, which means at some point both sides will come together to work out a compromise.

8-year-old donates birthday money By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

Tristen Rogers, 8, of Florence, is donating more than $300 he received for his birthday to Smile Train, an organization that provides free surgeries correcting cleft palates to children in developing countries STEPHANIE SALMONS/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Niki Roark of Florence will tell you that her son, Tristen Rogers, 8, is a “different kind of kid.” “He has a special heart,” she said. “He’s always surprising you with the things that he does. He just seems like such a man in a little body.” Last spring while at his allergy doctor’s, his mom was flipping through a magazine when Tristen saw a picture of a person with a cleft palate. When he laughed, Roark explained what it was and Tristen made the decision to help how he could. “I thought that was really sad that they had them,” he said. Tristen decided to donate money he received for his Dec. 20 birthday to Smile Train, an organization the provides free cleft surgeries to thousands of children in developing countries. He and his mom watched a video about cleft palates and researched the issue online. As she explained more about it, Tristen kept saying he wanted to donate his money. “It was really close to my heart then,” he said. So far, Tristen has raised $370 for the organization which will cover at least the $250 cost of one

BEST FRIENDS FOREVER

Girls fast friends since tots By Patricia A. Scheyer Contributor

BURLINGTON — Sophie Clark and Kennedy Hammons of Burlington have been best friends since they met, when they were about 2 and 3 years old and Sophie moved in across the street. Now 10 and 8 years old, respectively, the girls both go to Burlington Elementary School. But they don’t have much time together in school, so they spend extracurricular time at each other’s houses. “We like to put on performances,” said Kennedy. “We put

up curtains sometimes and have everybody come and watch.” In addition to performances, the girls might play with Barbie or their new American Girl dolls that look just like them, or fix each other’s hair. “We have lots of things in common,” said Kennedy. Sophie agrees. “Kennedy is funny, and she makes me laugh,” she said. “She makes great cupcakes, too.” The girls have thought about their future and would like to go to the same college. But where Sophie wants to be a model, and thinks Kennedy should be her

hairstylist, Kennedy wants to be a dentist and do hair on the side. Sophie thinks she will be a lawyer to pay the bills, and be a model for fun. “We want to live together in a mansion and have a pool on the roof,” said Sophie with a giggle. “And have diamonds on the walls,” Kennedy added with a big smile. “And save all the animals from the pound,” concluded Sophie, and the girls nodded in agreement. “Best Friends Forever” runs occasionally in the Community Recorder.

Kennedy Hammons, 8, left, and her doll Kate, and Sophie Clark, 10, and her doll Caroline, are both from Burlington, and spend most of their free time together. PATRICIA A. SCHEYER FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Homemade soup, stock perfect for winter’s day It’s a soup day at my house. We spent most of the day outside. We cleaned out the flue on the woodstove, spread some ashes and chicken manure on the garden, and took down Rita the last of Heikenfeld the outdoor RITA’S KITCHEN decorations. I meandered through our little patch of woods down to the river and the sun made the water positively sparkle. It’s cold enough that small patches of ice hung onto the bank. Today was the perfect day to hang out bedding, too. When my head touches the pillow tonight and the fresh aroma of a winter’s day surrounds my senses, all will be right with my world.

Joy of Cooking’s version of U.S. Senate bean soup Cathy, an East reader, wanted a recipe for this famous soup, which to this

maneuver through, and tells the history of the Joy of Cooking family. When they lived in Cincinnati, both Ethan and Susan were always ready and willing to share their abundant talents. And they’re still doing it, but now from their Half Moon Ridge retreat in the mountains of East Tennessee. I made a version of this in my pressure cooker. Check out my blog, Cooking with Rita, at Cincinnati.com for details. Rita shares the Joy of Cooking version of U.S. Senate bean soup. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

day is still served in the Senate’s restaurant in Washington, D.C. One story goes that the bean soup tradition began around 1900 at the request of Sen. Fred Dubois of Idaho. Regardless, it’s a soup that’s stood the test of time, and there have been a bunch of recipes replicating it. The best that I have found is from Joyofcooking.com, Ethan and Susan Becker’s online site. It’s a fun and easy site to

1¼ cups small dried white beans, such as navy or Great Northern, rinsed and picked over 1 small ham hock 7 cups cold water

Soak beans. Drain and place in a soup pot with ham hock and water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the beans are tender, about 1¼ hours. Remove the ham hock (leave the soup at a gentle simmer). Discard the bone, skin, and fat; dice the meat. Return it to the pot and add: 1 large onion, diced 3 medium celery ribs with leaves, chopped

Tips from Rita’s kitchen Why this stock is good for you: Onions, leeks and garlic are good for your cardiovascular system Carrots are good for your eyes Bay is a salt buster Parsley is like a vitamin pill in a plant Thyme has a peppery flavor and is both antiseptic and anti-bacterial Cloves have anti-inflammatory qualities (some dentists still use clove oil) Tarragon has a savory licorice flavor, and has potassium, which can help blood pressure Pepper has antioxidant qualities Oregano fights colds and soothes joints 1 large potato, peeled and finely diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1½ teaspoons salt ½ teaspoon black pepper 2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Simmer until the potato pieces are quite soft, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and mash with a potato masher until the soup is a bit creamy. Stir in parsley.

Immune-boosting homemade vegetable stock For Frank, a Dayton reader who gets this col-

umn online and who is leaning toward becoming vegan. “I want to make my own stock so it’s completely natural,” he said. This is lighter in taste and texture than stock made with bones or meat. If you like, add a bit of soy sauce (check label for ingredients) or the vegan equivalent at the end of cooking time for a deeper flavor.

2 bay leaves Handful fresh parsley 2 sprigs thyme, about 2 inches each 1 whole clove Shake or two of dried tarragon or a 3-inch fresh sprig, optional 8-10 peppercorns 1 teaspoon dried oregano 8 cups water

Put everything in soup pot and bring to a boil. Cover, lower to a simmer and cook for 1 hour. Strain. Season with salt and pepper. Can be refrigerated up to a week or frozen three months.

Check refund policy on daily deal websites Daily deal and couponing websites are attracting many people on the Internet. There are many great deals offered, but what happens if you don’t get the deal for which you paid? Lisa Anderson of Hidden Valley Lake says she’s used the Living Social website about a half dozen times and likes the variety of offers it has. “I’ve used them before for manicures and pedicures and things like that. I saw a coupon for an auto detailing package that was a really good price and decided I would go ahead and try that,” Anderson said. After paying half price with the offer, $45, Anderson tried to contact the detailing company. “I tried over a period of

two weeks to schedule the appointment by phone. I got no response, not even a call back to say Howard were busy,” Ain she says. HEY HOWARD! She tried to contact them over the Internet but also got no response. Finally, Anderson contacted the website Living Social and requested her money back. She was told to wait because sometimes a vendor may be overwhelmed by the huge response received for an offer. Eventually, Anderson received an e-mail saying she can’t get a refund.

“They do not refund. You get a credit toward some future purchase with Living Social,” she says. There are plenty of offers on the Living Social website, so Anderson says she’s confident she’ll be able to buy one of them to use the credit. But, she says, it would have been nice to know in the beginning there are no refunds. “Buyer beware a little bit more, and research how these outfits really work,” she says. To avoid getting caught up in impulse buying, most deal websites like Living Social offer you at least five days to cancel and get a full refund. After that time, Living Social says it only provides refunds if the merchant goes out of business. Otherwise, you’ll

get a credit good for another deal. For high-priced items, like vacation trips to China costing about $1,200, Living Social says it will give you a full refund, no questions asked, up to 30 days after your purchase. That allows both the customer and the merchant to confirm the purchase. Living Social’s refund policy is found on the company’s website in the “Terms and Conditions” section. This is something you should check out before you buy from any coupon or deal website. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

New law encourages rehab over jail By Pat Moynahan Contributor

Boone Circuit Judge Anthony W. Frohlich believes a recent overhaul of Kentucky’s sentencing laws provides a blueprint for reform in the treatment of non-violent offenders. HB 463, which went into effect in June, reduces jail or prison time for low-risk drug users who possess small amounts of illegal drugs. The legislation also encourages the courts to send minor drug offenders into rehabilitation programs instead of jail. “One of the problems in the justice system is that the criminal population has changed but the way we deal with crime has not changed,” Frohlich told members of the Florence Rotary Club at a Dec. 12 meeting. “We need a new model. This bill will kick-start how we deal with crime in the country” in the future, he added. The Penal Code and Controlled Substances Act (HB 463) is designed to decrease the prison population, reduce incarceration costs and increase public safety. State officials estimate the sweeping reforms in the150-page act will save $42 million a year over the next decade because of reductions in the number of non-violent offenders in jail. Since 1974 crime has

gone down but the prison population has gone up because of increases in drug convictions, according to Frohlich. Incarceration costs about $22,000 per person, compared to $3,000 for drug treatment. Before issuing a sentence, the courts also must engage in a risk and needs assessment, according to Frohlich. Will the person offend again? Engage in anti-social behavior? What will be the impact of association with other criminals if jailed? “We are Frohlich looking for alternatives to imprisonment,” Frohlich said. “First-time offenders can be sent to treatment programs, not jail.” The changes present some challenges. If a judge determines probation and rehabilitation are in order, the offender must be treated somewhere other than jail. However, neither funding for treatment nor a system to monitor the person may be available, Frohlich observed. For information about the weekly meetings, guest speakers, and community service opportunities of the Florence Rotary, contact Pat Moynahan, president, at amoynahan@insightbb. com or 802-0242.

Ministerial fund has helped many families The new year has started and we think back on 2011 of things that we could have changed and things we can be thankful for. The Walton Verona Community Ministerial Fund and the Pantry are thankful for all the monetary and food supplies donated during the Christmas season. This certainly helped several families get through a rough time.

A special thanks from Peggy Peebles to the Boone County Drugs’ employees for their Ruth generous Meadows gift to the WALTON NEWS WV Community Pantry. Dick and Maggie Rinehart traveled to Salem, Iowa, to spend the Christ-

mas holiday with Maggie’s sister Jane and husband, Ron Fuller. While there they enjoyed deep fried turkey and spiral ham and also reported weather was great for traveling. Travis Roy will be reporting to Great Lakes Naval Base this coming week. He and his family were honored with a special going away meal on Sunday at the Walton Christian Church. Travis

was also given a love gift. We wish him much success in his new career and pray for his service time to be rewarding and safe. We are glad to report Ann (Sis) Black is at home recuperating after a few days in the hospital.

Happy birthday to Vada Bolin on Jan. 15, Minnie Seay on Jan. 18.

Question: I’ve been keeping the fireplace going with all the cold weather we’ve had. Are wood ashes good for the garden? Answer: Wood ashes contain potash and Mike have some Klahr use as a HORTICULTURE liming CONCERNS material. Their rather low neutralizing value ranges from 30 percent to 70 percent, expressed as calcium carbonate. The ash of hardwoods, such as maple, elm, oak and beech, contains about one-third more calcium mainly as the oxide, but, on exposure to moisture, they are largely in the carbonate form by the time they are applied to soil. So, if a soil test shows that your soil pH is too low for the crops you are growing (i.e., if it’s below pH 6.3 for most vegetables), then lime or wood ashes may be added to raise the soil pH.

The definition of autism is a developmental brain disorder that impacts the communication skills and social abilities of affected individuals. This new program was developed at the urging of an autistic Tri-State student, who asked, “Do you think I could join the leadership program and help kids like me?” Tri-State ATA has partnered with Autism 4 Families, a resource organization, to offer classes for autistic individuals who would benefit from personalized attention and structured training. Templeton shared a video showing the students participating in classes, and spoke of their pride in accomplishing a new skill.
