Jags win regional



Plan would arm teachers, school workers By Melissa Stewart

BURLINGTON — After the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012, Joe Kalil came up with a plan. “I want to protect our kids before we have a shooting here (in Northern Kentucky),” the Boone County constable and Florence resident said. “We have all kinds of safety threats to our schools; specifically there’s the threat of an active shooter. Across the state, all of our safety measures now in place are reactionary. We have no procedures in place to prevent school shootings and this is unacceptable.” So he started working on School POST (Protecting Our Students and Teachers), a program that would screen, train and arm volunteer teachers and staff members. Kalil will unveil the program at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb.19, at the Main Branch of the Boone County Public Library, 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington. “We want to bring the program public and invite residents throughout the region to find out more about it so that they will urge the school boards in the region to



Residents hear about Woolper Creek watershed

consider the program,” Kalil said.

About the program

BURLINGTON — Boone County residents were given the chance to learn about the Woolper Creek Watershed Initiative during a Jan. 30 open house and presentation. In a phone conversation after the meeting, watershed project manager Mark Jacobs said about three dozen people showed up for the presentation, which was “basically telling people what the Woolper Creek Watershed Initiative was.” The initiative is being completed with a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Kentucky Division of Water. A similar initiative is underway for the Gunpowder Creek Watershed. According to information put out by the conservation district, Woolper Creek drains a 33-squaremile watershed. The creek’s headwaters originate near Hebron and Burlington, flowing westward for almost 14 miles to the Ohio River. Major tributaries of Woolper Creek are Allen Fork, Ashby’s Fork and Double Lick Creek, which has been identified an an outstanding state resource water by the Kentucky Di-

POST is closely patterned after the National Armed Pilots Program and incorporates lessons learned by law enforcement during 10 years of study since the shooting at a high school in Columbine, Colo. It is intended to be a model program starting in Kentucky, Kalil said, but could be adopted anywhere in the U.S. Volunteers would go through extensive screenings and training. Those armed would carry concealed weapons and would remain unidentified to students, but would know who else is armed. Police dispatch would know how many participants are at each school. This would be in addition to a school resource officer who is an armed deputy in the schools. Programs similar to POST exist in several states. But Kalil said, “unlike these programs, POST requires extensive training and regular recertification.”

vision of Water,. “For the most part, on the bright side, the stream health overall is pretty good,” Jacobs said. But there is some stream instability in the headwaters near Hebron and Burlington, which is associated with more development in that area, he said. Three sections of the creek are considered impaired, but Jacobs said he’s hopeful that if the public gets involved, that can be reversed. According to the conservation district, the initiative has worked over the last two years to collect chemical, biological and physical data from Woolper Creek as part of a comprehensive watershed monitoring plan. “This data will give us a clear picture of the cause of impairments in Woolper Creek,” according to a document from the conservation district. “It will also help us develop practical strategies to manage these problems and keep them from getting worse as our community grows. Addressing these complicated issues can be difficult and will take the participation and involvement from the community.” Jacobs said the data analysis is currently unSee WOOLPER, Page A2

Couple: ‘Love is a choice, not a feeling’ By Karen Meiman

In the glow of tiny, white lights Connie and Mike Nolan dance cheek-to-cheek on the dance floor of a Florida restaurant. The Boone County couple laughs and, with another couple, chat about the good times they have encountered, while escaping Kentucky’s brutal winter this year. The Nolans have a sound relationship. They know that in their hearts this Valentine’s Day. But, that hasn’t always been the case. They have inflicted a lot of pain onto each other. Now,


they are hoping other couples learn from their mistakes. Mike, 65, remembers vividly Nov. 7, 1988, the day he sat in an airplane bound for Kentucky. He had been on a business trip in Alaska for six weeks. During his stay, he bought a blue fox fur coat, hoping to surprise Connie upon his return. There would be no happy homecoming. Suspecting nothing during his trip, Mike learned that his wife of nearly 20 years had moved out of their home. “There was nothing left but the bed and the dog,” he said. “I remember wishing that the plane to crash and I meant it.”

“It was just a disaster,” Connie, 62, recalled. In the midst of a bustling household that involved the packed schedules of two teenagers, Kristy and Sandi, Mike and Connie had grown apart. They had stopped communicating. Connie felt controlled. Resentment built. “Mike had come from a household that included two controlling parents. My parents were very laid-back,” Connie said. “We were so different. We argued a lot. We butted heads. I didn’t feel like I had a say in matters.”

More 1-hour delays will extend day By Melissa Stewart

Students may have to stay in class an hour later than normal if the start of school is delayed. Kentucky law permits school districts to use five one-hour delays for emergencies, such as inclement weather, each school year. Boone County Schools have used four one-hour delays so far.



The district sent a letter to families Feb. 7 informing parents that if the district goes over the permitted five delays, an hour will be added onto the end of

North Pointe helping patients in hospital alone Around this time of year, people exchange valentines. However, these hearts aren’t the only ones filled with love. This year at North Pointe Elementary, as a service learning project, the fifth-grade students will sell candy grams and linking hearts to help children in need through the Josh Cares Foundation. The Josh Cares Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making sure that no critically ill child goes through hospitalization without the support and comfort they need. Josh Cares funds professionally trained child life specialists (nurses)

who provide consistent comfort, care and companionship for children whose families are unable to be with them. For just $20, a child is provided an hour of one-onone quality time with their assigned specialist. To help support this foundation, the school is selling personalized candy grams for $1each; and linking hearts for $5 donations.

that sixth day. “We will only utilize this plan for the one-hour delays in extreme cases,” Superintendent Randy Poe said. At the Feb. 6 Boone County Schools Board of Education meeting, board members gave their support to extend the school day. Board member Ed Massey said he trusts Poe’s judgment.

scheduled for the end of the year. The board also voted to have school in session on Friday, March 14, to make up for the off day on primary election day Tuesday, May 20. State law requires that students cannot be in school on the day of the primary.

arming teachers as that is not why teachers elected their chosen profession,” Massey said. “Also, we have serious concerns about guns on the premises. There is simply no way to assure that the students would not have access to the firearms. A teacher could be overpowered by a student, or a gun left unattended could be taken into possession by a student.”

Massey said that while the school district is “insistent on safety” – there are emergency plans for each facility and school resource officers – “there is simply no way to stop rogue persons from posing a threat to a district facility if they are intent on doing so.” Kalil disagrees. He said that he believes that signs identifying the school as a participant of a program will be a “successful deterrent” on its own. “Right now schools have no gun signs on the door. That just tells the shooter no good guys have guns to protect themselves,” he said. “Having a sign that says we have armed individuals on the property can prevent a shooting from occurring in the first place. They’ll see the sign and move on.” Kalil said the program also provides trained and armed staff members who can respond to any situation immediately. “In Newtown, four teachers were killed standing in front of their students,” Kalil said. “I

bet if they were to come back and asked if they had the opportunity to be trained and armed, they’d do it. A gun is just a tool and you can be trained to use it properly. Why should we allow more teachers to die because they’re untrained and didn’t have the option?” Massey, who’s been on the school board for 17 years and is a past president of the National School Boards Association, said the issue is “very hot and subject to great debate.” “As elected school board members, we represent all community members including the voting community and the students,” he said. “While safety is a high priority, there are numerous ways to implement safety programs. None of them will provide complete insulation from a deranged individual who is intent on making a political statement or bringing harm to a student. I speak as one board member of five.”

girl with big brown eyes to match, were erased with bitterness. “I was almost 40 years old,” Mike said. “My life was falling apart.” The divorce was finalized, but Mike never gave up on the relationship. During a quick lunch at a chili place in Erlanger, a waitress suggested he go to a Catholic support group for men recovering from divorce. What was shared in the group resonated with Mike. “I got to know myself,” he said. He also unearthed the key moments in his life that shaped him in negative and positive ways. He learned how to forgive himself. As Mike got his life

back together, Connie watched. She was impressed. Connie and Mike entered therapy, first individually, then together. In August 1990, they remarried. Working through pain, had made Mike feel “reborn.” He says he is actually grateful that he went through the turmoil. “Through pain, comes growth,” he said. The couple say there are too many lessons learned to package in a newspaper article. But this Valentine’s Day they are hoping to share with other couples that they can work through most anything, but it takes time and effort. “The feeling of good that you experience at the

beginning of a relationship will fade,” Mike said. “There is the war zone or the growing apart, but you can get to the third stage – partnership – with work,” Connie said. Connie and Mike’s ride through marriage, divorce and remarriage fueled Connie’s desire to become a counselor. The Nolans have written a book, “The Amazing Journey of a Relationship,” available on Today, they still have arguments, but working through them has changed dramatically, they say. “She’s going to grow in different ways,” Mike said. “But I am aware of that.” “We have learned that love is a choice, not a feeling,” Connie added. “Sometimes I sit in weddings in which the bride or groom are on their second and third marriage,” Mike said. “When I hear ‘Til death do you part,’ I wonder if they really know what that means.”

do nothing. Two, have an officer in every school, but there’s just not enough money for that. Now, we have this program. I’m not one to do nothing. To me, the POST program is a no-brainer. I’m about protecting people, protecting our children. (POST) is the most cost effective, common sense approach available to us.” Helmig said “it is up to the school boards across the commonwealth to make the decision on whether they want to participate or not.” Boone County School Board member Ed Massey said he doesn’t believe arming teachers and staff is the appropriate route. He said Kalil and Helmig approached him and Boone Schools Superintendent Randy Poe about the program last year. A formal presentation has not been made to the entire board. “We are not in favor of

Pints for Paws helping Boone Co. animal shelter By Stephanie Salmons

UNION — As part of Cincinnati Beer Week, a Union restaurant is hosting Pints for Paws Thursday, Feb. 13. For every pint of Christian Moerlein Brewing Co.’s Emancipator Doppelbock sold from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. that day, Flipdaddy’s Brilliant Burgers and Craft Beers, 8863 U.S. 42, Union, will donate $1to the Boone County Animal Shelter. The idea started with

Burlington resident Carla Gesell-Streeter who operates, a beer blog, with her husband, Tom. “This event was inspired by our cat, Bock, who we recently lost,” Gesell-Streeter said. Bock had heart disease, but the couple didn’t know it until a blood clot suddenly blocked the flow to his back legs and he couldn’t move his hindquarters. After Bock died, his brother, Porter, needed a playmate “and we felt like

we needed a second cat too,” Gesell-Streeter said. They found a new feline friend, Dunkel, from the shelter. According to GesellStreeter, Cincinnati Beer Week organizers requested venues try to include charitable events as part of their events this year. Bar manager Joshua Baughan said it gives people an “added boost to get out and support beer week but do it for a good (cause).” The restaurant, which also has locations in Ma-

UNION — The Boone County Planning Commission unanimously voted Feb. 5 to recommend denial of a zoning map amendment that, if approved, would pave the way for a Kroger Marketplace store in Union. Once the planning commission’s Feb. 5 meeting minutes are approved at its next business meeting, 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at the Boone County Administration Building, 2950 Washington St., Burlington, the recommendation will be sent to the city of Union for final consideration. Senior planner Todd Morgan said the city can then choose to uphold the denial or overturn the planning commission’s recommendation. The request is for a zoning map amendment from Union Neighbor-

Athletes find way to college Several Boone County athletes signed to continue their sports careers in colleges in the first week of the national sign-

BOONE COUNTY — Regional championships have not been frequent in the six-year history of Cooper High School. Senior T.J. Jones wasn’t going to let a potentially serious ankle injury stop him from helping bring one back to his school. Jones and the Jaguars swept the boys titles last week at the Region 6 KHSAA championships at Super Bowl Erlanger. Cooper won the boys team title and Jones won the individual singles championship. They qualified for the state tournament Feb. 13-14 in Lexington. “It means the world, especially for a new school,” Jones said. “It feels fantastic. The past two or three years we’ve been runner-up and I told everyone before we even started today: No matter what, we’re going to be the winners. It feels great to actually come out and do it.” The Cooper team won the match-play bracket at the team event, defeating Dixie Heights in the finals. The Jaguars had a narrow escape against Covington Catholic in the semifinals, winning in the maximum five games to keep their season alive. They did that on the feet and arms of Jones, the only senior on the team and the anchor bowler who bowls the 10th frame in the team games. Jones had damaged ligaments in his right ankle a week prior and

wasn’t sure if he was going to be able to bowl in the postseason. “They told me at the ER they thought it was torn ligaments,” Jones said. “I thought I was done, but then I went to an orthopedic specialist. and he said I could bowl within a week.” The other starters in the Baker system match play were Andrew Blood, Michael Bowling, Austin Hams and Stephen Elgowsky. They and the rest of the team will compete in the state team event on Friday. “Last year when we went to state, we went there with high expectations and we had a bad day,” said head coach Tim Frank. “Our expectations are going to be higher. They want to go up there and be competitive and try to win state.” Jones, who has been bowling with the Cooper team since day one, when bowling was a club sport and he was a seventhgrader, enjoys the intense tournament atmos-

phere. He is looking forward for it to peak at state. “We’re going to have a lot more momentum going in this year than we have in previous years. We figured out what it’s like to win and we can bowl good. This is one of the most talented teams that we’ve ever had. It’s’ really amazing and we’ve come a long way.” Despite his ankle, Jones stepped up his game even further the next day in the regional singles tournament, winning the individual title. The fourth seed in qualifying, he won three headto-head matches to win the title, shooting 200 in his first game then firing a near-perfect 278 and 264 to win the tournament. Boone County’s Dylan Burk finished fourth in the regional and will also go to state in singles. In the girls singles, Boone County sophomore Kayla Hightchew won the individual title, See BOWLING, Page A8

Bearcats snap losing streak at Lloyd T

River Monsters burst back on the scene

he Walton-Verona boys basketball team beat Lloyd Feb. 8 in Erlanger, 48-43. The win was the first for the Bearcats since Dec. 16, as they improved to 3-17 on the year. Sophomore Zach Townsend scored 15 points, Chance Sullivan 14 and Kyle Kinmon 11. Sullivan hit four 3-pointers and made a crucial steal late in the game. W-V was set to host Conner Friday, Feb. 14, and Beechwood Saturday, Feb. 15.

The Northern Kentucky River Monsters burst onto the national radar, thanks to affable quarterback Jared Lorenzen. The organization now hopes to prove that it is much more than just one man. After losing Lorenzen to a broken tibia in the home opener, Feb. 9, the River Monsters must move forward without their most recognizable player. Putting on a show for the local fans was always priority No. 1. That will not change. After a two-year hiatus and a league change, the River Monsters are back, now playing in the Continental Indoor Football League. The team’s home games are played at Northern Kentucky University’s Bank of Kentucky Center. For any football fans needing their fix after the conclusion of the college and NFL seasons, the CIFL provides a worthy, and unique, alternative. “I want this team to belong to Northern Kentucky,” said owner and general manager Jill Chitwood. “I encourage the sponsors to stand up and embrace this team as their own.”

Jared Lorenzen has helped bring national attention to the River Monsters football team.FILE PHOTO

community, it’s something local, it’s something fun for the kids to be involved with,” said Carol Ayers, a former Campbell County High School and Ben-Gals cheerleader, now a co-coach of the River Girls cheer squad. “I’m hoping more families will get out and support this local team.” Many attendees of the home opener had a connection to a player or cheerleader on the roster, but there were also many who just wanted to check out the new local football product. A trio of NKU freshmen heard about the game when they were at an NKU men’s basketball game the week prior. Erlanger resident Lisa

Fans can sit just a few feet from the playing field. Kicks and errant passes often end up in the stands. When fans shout encouragement at the River Monsters, or unkind words at the opponent, the players can hear them. The teams’ sidelines are located in corners of the arena right next to the bleachers. Weather is never a factor. Pre-game and halftime festivities engage fans of all ages. Hudepohl is on tap and costs $6. Following the game, players, coaches, cheerleaders, and mascots stick around the field signing autographs and greeting fans. “I’m hoping that more of the fans realize that this may be a step down from the NFL, but it’s in our

Hightchew and Bross, their team’s anchors, both notched a spare in the frame and Hightchew scored eight pins on her final ball to clinch the win. “It was nerve-wracking, but I knew I had the team behind me,” Hightchew said. ‘When I got up there, I heard them all yelling. My legs were shaking and I knew that no matter what, we were going to state. I’m really happy for my team right now because we’ve won

edging Cooper’s Emily Bross 183-181 in the championship match. Boone teammates Taylor Evans (third) and Samantha Schmitz (fourth) also advanced to state. Hightchew shot 240 and 183 in her two games to win the title. She edged Bross in the final frame for the second consecutive day after leading the Rebels to the team championship the day before. Boone beat Cooper 3-2 in the match-play final.


The effort and desire to win from both players and coaches was undeniable. Many CIFL players had tryouts with NFL or AFL teams. Some, like Lorenzen, experienced football at the highest level. There are players from all divisions of collegiate football. Some are hoping to work their way back up to higher levels, while others simply play for the love of the game. League owners also look for quality young men to represent their organization in the community. “The one thing with

Hucker heard about the River Monsters from a co-worker earlier in the week and brought her husband Rob and 7-yearold son Wyatt to the game. The interaction between the team and the fans will keep the Huckers coming back, said Rob. While the players may not be as big, strong, or fast as NFL players, they are still bigger, stronger, and faster than most people. The hits were hard.

district and regionals two times in a row.” Hightchew had the highest average for the year in Northern Kentucky and will try to lead the Rebels to a big run at state. “The key today was their resilience,” said head coach Bruce Hightchew of the team title. “They had it all year but today there was a feel in the air. They really wanted this. These girls just kept fighting. They know the importance of filling frames.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

this team that I do not have to emphasize to them is how important getting out in the community is,” said Chitwood. “I am blessed to have great athletes on the field and awesome young men off the field. I have players who are taking it upon themselves to get out to schools, organizations, and hospitals and spread the word about us and help the community in any way they can.” Having a roster with many local ties also helps the River Monsters bring in a fan base. When Lorenzen went down with his injury, another former Highlands High School quarterback, Kyle James, filled in capably. The University of Cincinnati and Thomas More College have the most alums on the River Monsters roster. “I like that the River Monsters get so many lo-

cal players involved and allow them an opportunity to continue to play football,” said Highlands athletic director Dale Mueller. After winning the opener that garnered national attention, the River Monsters suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the defending CIFL champion Erie Explosion. Erie owner Bill Stafford was impressed by the Bank of Kentucky Center and its ability to transform into a 50-yard turf field with suspended U-shaped goalposts. The field is surrounded by padded panels covered in advertisements for local businesses. Eight men on each team, along with one coach, are on the field at a time. The CIFL is conducive to running the football, a key that the Explosion exploited on their way to the 2013 title and in their 42-30 victory over Northern Kentucky on Feb. 9. Indoor football need not result in basketball scores. The average score of the River Monsters’ first two games this season is 39-25. After a whirlwind week in which he promot-

ed the CIFL and the River Monsters to dozens of sports radio outlets, even Lorenzen’s unfortunate injury received national exposure. His willingness to serve as the face and voice of the entire league benefited the CIFL and all of its organizations. “It really ramped up the overall level of the league,” said Stafford of the media attention focused on Lorenzen. Now, with their star and starting quarterback on the shelf, the River Monsters must try even harder to give the local community plenty to be excited about. They know that the bar has been raised, but feel like they are up to the challenge. “Never in our wildest dreams did we ever think we would have one-fourth this type of exposure. Seeing the River Monsters on NFL Network, ESPN, and Fox Sports has been jaw-dropping and exciting,” said Chitwood. “All these young men are talented and have a passion for football and also for the community.” The River Monsters return to the Bank of Kentucky Center, 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, hosting the Bluegrass Warhorses.

Bill increases accessibility to health care Outside the Capitol, snow and sleet and freezing rain provided a beautiful – though at times, treacherous – backdrop to the work inside. Last week saw two milestones of the 2014 regular session: The first third of the session completed and the first bill to receive final passage of the entire General Assembly. I was honored to co-sponsor Senate Bill 7, an important measure aimed at increasing accessibility to health care in Kentucky. As chairman of the Licensing and Occupations Committee I worked all summer on this deal between nurse

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Are our children safe at school?

We must come together as a community and address a very important issue: the safety of our children in school, specifically from an active shooter. A “No Gun” sign does not protect our children. On the contrary, the “No Gun” sign does nothing but create a potential killing field by identifying a location where a mass killer will not meet armed resistance. Even the best evacuation plans and drills instructing our children how to react and where to hide in the event of an active shooting situation will not stop a criminal intent on carrying out an act of violence. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Police response time in Newtown, Conn., was only three minutes, a short amount of time in which 26 people were murdered. Last month, one school shooting took place on average every other day in the U.S. We need to take this issue seriously before it happens in our schools. Boone County Sheriff Mike Helmig and Boone County Constable Joe Kalil have established a low-cost, thorough program to mitigate this threat. It is based on the very successful “armed pilot” program. If you would like to find out more about this program, then please attend a presentation on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 6 p.m. at the Boone County Main Library, 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington.

practitioners and doctors. It was gratifying to work with Boone County’s own Dr. Nancy Swikert, representing the John Schickel Kentucky COMMUNITY Medical AssoRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST ciation. She was the lead negotiator for the doctors. This comes after years of dedicated effort and I was proud that the first bill to land on the governor’s desk this year was one that eases burdens on patients

and their practitioners. Senate Bill 1, which passed the Senate this week, is another very important piece of legislation which I co-sponsored. Many of my constituents have complained over the years about the burden administrative regulations place on them and their businesses. As your state senator, it was frustrating to me that the legislature was virtually helpless to stop this group bureaucracy. Senate Bill 1 will rein in the administrative regulations to the intent of the legislature. I am hopeful this bill will pass in the House.

It was my honor to address the Small Business Caucus at the Governor’s Mansion on Thursday, along with Sen. Chris McDaniel from neighboring Kenton County. It was good to see so many small business people from Northern Kentucky and talk to them about the important issues that face small business. I’m convinced that to truly get our economy back on track we must get small business thriving again in Kentucky. Sometimes we forget that the majority of Kentuckians are employed by small business. I was reminded this week of

what is truly important – values like life and liberty – when the Senate memorialized the death of Capt. David Lyon. Capt. Lyon died while serving in Afghanistan. State Sen. Alice Forgy Kerr beautifully honored the brave soldier’s life and the sacrifice of his widow and parents by leading the entire chamber in singing “God Bless America.” There was not a dry eye as we paid tribute to this fallen hero.

Should Boone schools allow POST?

As a member of the Boone County school board for over 17 years, I feel compelled to address an issue that has arisen in the past few months. Due to the increase in school shootings some community members have suggested that Boone County allow teachers to be armed. The program is called POST (Protecting our Students and Teachers). First, I want to assure community members, students and staff that the Boone County Board of Education is fully committed to student and staff safety. The board has continued to monitor all available options to ensure students and staff are provided the most prudent protection from those who would formulate an attack. Currently, we utilize armed school resource officers (SROs). Unfortunately, neither the sheriff’s department nor the board of education has available funding to put an SRO in every building. We will continue to explore funding options and continuously

monitor our security plans. Notwithstanding, allowing teachers and/or staff to be C. Ed armed is no Massey guarantee that security withCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST in our schools COLUMNIST would be enhanced. Teachers and administrators did not enter the profession of public education to become armed guards. A wrong judgment or the mis-firing of a weapon could have disastrous consequences. There is also an elevated concern about a student overpowering a teacher and taking control of a weapon on school grounds. Teachers and administrators, even if trained, would not be trained to the level of law enforcement officer or SROs. Secondly, the POST initiative involves a political element. The following message is on the flyer that is being

distributed: What can you do to support POST? » Attend the February 19th presentation and invite others » Ask others to like & follow our Facebook & Twitter Accounts Contact every member of your school board and express your support of the POST program (go to the take action page of the website for assistance) » Vote for the school board members that support the POST program on Nov. 4th. » Consider running for school board yourself (filing deadline is Aug. 12, 2014. Contact us for support and assistance) It appears that if someone opposes the POST program there is a suggestion that they be replaced. This also assumes that education is founded upon a singular issue. That is simply illogical. Safety has and will always be a concern. However, school board members have many considerations including safe-

Let’s stop Common Core before it’s too late The Common Core State Standards initiative, also known as Common Core, is an education initiative in the United States that details what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. Ostensibly its purpose is to establish consistent education standards across the states as well as ensure what students graduating from high school are prepared to enter two or four year colleges programs or enter the workforce. The state of Kentucky was the first to implement the Common Core State Standards and began offering the new curriculum in math and English in August 2010. Although proponents make it sound appealing Common Core represents a federal takeover of our educational system instead of it being under local control. Even worse its unknown if Common Core will successfully improve education. Diane Ravitch, former U.S. assistant secretary of education, wrote



A publication of

in her book, “Reign of Error,” that Common Core standards have never been fieldtested and that no one knows Terry whether they Donoghue will improve COMMUNITY education. RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST The board of directors of the 600,000 members of the state of New York Teacher’s Union, has withdrawn their support for the Common Core Standards. The union is also demanding that all questions on the new Common Core exams be released so teachers can review them and use them to shape instruction. Read more at On Wednesday, Jan. 15, Northern Kentucky Rep. Tom Kerr submitted a bill to do away with Common Core, HB 215. This bill is designed to put education back in the hands of the local school district and require public involvement in

the standards. Now the concerned parents and grandparents of the Kentucky students must act. HB 215 was sent to the Education Committee which is led by Rep. Derrick Graham, a former teacher who has said publicly that the Common Core issued is settled. We must act to get this bill passed. Please call the Legislative Hot Line at 1-800-372-7181 and tell them to eliminate Common Core and support HB 215. Ask the operator in Frankfort to give the message to your state representative, senator and all members of the House Education Committee. It only takes a couple minutes and the operator will look up all the legislators for you. Please make the call and have your friends and neighbors call. Call everyday if you would. Our legislators need to know that we want to put the education of our children under our control not the federal government. We MUST do our part to eliminate Common Core in Kentucky.

ty, academic success, college and career readiness, and life skills. Boone County has been recognized as a premier district locally, nationally and internationally. To assume a board member who rejects the concept of arming teachers is a bad board member is preposterous. In Boone County I will continue to work with the sheriff and other law enforcement entities to provide the best available security for all of our schools. For more information please feel free to attend the special board workshop on Wednesday March 6, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Ralph Rush Center. As always, I am committed to our motto which is, “achieving excellence together”!

C. Ed Massey is a member of the Boone County School Board and past president of the Kentucky School Boards Association and National School Boards Association.

North Pointe Elementary School recently celebrated Donuts with Dads in the school cafeteria, with nearly 300 dads in attendance. “The kids made paper doughnuts and wrote on them what their dad ‘sprinkles’ them with every day,” said Mike Shires, North Pointe principal. “We hung them on the wall for everyone to see. “Donuts with Dad was a huge success. I saw the look in all the kids’ eyes and it was amazing. Go dads.”

Jenny Murray, PTA board member, added: “There has also been a huge increase in involvement by dads throughout the school and classrooms. We attribute the success of Donuts with Dads and the involvement of dads at NPE to the top dog, Principal Shires.” Donuts with Dads was sponsored by Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students), a program at North Pointe that encourages father figures to get more involved in school activities, from tutoring kids to cooking pancakes.

Bread recipe easy for beginners Florence church

Italian bread for beginners and everyone else I like this recipe for its simplicity. The flavor and texture is like the kind you get at a bakery. The crust is a bit crisp and pale gold. I’m giving detailed instructions here. Check out my blog for tips on kneading and step-by-step photos. If you want, sprinkle poppy seeds on the bread after shaping. 1 package (1⁄4 oz.) active dry yeast 2 cups warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees) Pinch of sugar to feed yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 2 teaspoons salt 51⁄2 cups all-purpose flour

Stir yeast in warm water, adding a pinch of sugar to “feed” the yeast. It’s ready when it looks foamy on top, a few minutes. Pour into mixing bowl and add sugar, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour in remaining flour and mix on low to form soft dough. On very lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes or so. It may be sticky at first, but will get smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour or so. Punch dough down.

Divide in half. Shape each into a loaf. There are two ways to do this: Simply make loaf shape Rita with your Heikenfeld hands RITA’S KITCHEN about 12 inches long, or roll dough into an approximate 12-inch by 7-inch rectangle. Roll up tightly from long side, pinch seams to seal and place seam side down on sprayed or parchment-lined pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes. With sharp knife, make four shallow slashes across top of loaf. Bake at preheated 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.


» Make this by hand? Of course, and you get a workout, too! » Measure accurately. Flour settles as it sits. Whisk a bit or stir before measuring. Measure by spooning lightly into cup and leveling off with knife. » How warm is 110115 degrees? Best to use an instant read thermometer, which is inexpensive and accurate. Water is just right when you put some on your wrist and it’s warm enough for a baby to drink from a bottle. » How to tell when dough is doubled. Rising time is a guide only. Use fingers to make indentation about 1⁄2 inch into dough. If the indentation remains, the dough has doubled. For the second rise after shaping, make a small indentation in the dough near its side. If the dent remains, the dough is ready to bake.

Today is a bread baking day. The idea actually started yesterday when my friend Joanie Manzo, a Loveland reader, brought me a loaf of homemade cinnamon bread. Divine! So it got me in the bread baking mood. I didn’t have time for cinnamon bread but knew I’d have time to make this easy recipe for Italian bread. I kept one loaf for us and sent the other to Tony and Debbie, our neighbors. With this wicked icy weather, a warm loaf of bread with a bowl of steaming stew is a comforting supper.



Valentine’s dance benefits Alzheimer’s By Nancy Daly

Do you have a friend or a loved one dealing with Alzheimer’s disease? Then you may want to go – and definitely take your sweetheart – to the ninth annual Cherish the Memories Valentine’s Dance. A dinner dance with Jesse Tack from WUBEFM B105 will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Marriott Cincinnati Airport, 2395 Progress Drive, Hebron. The evening will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. It is estimated that there are nearly 55,000 individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder within the Greater Cincinnati Chapter territory, including Northern Ken-

tucky. That number is expected to nearly triple by the middle of this century, according to the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. Help the cause by joining the fun: dancing, raffles, split the pot, silent auction and live auction. According to Becky Tucker Biddle, who’s helped founder Cris Suesz get the event together this year, “It is truly an amazing time and we have had great turnouts.” Biddle, like Suesz a Burlington resident, mentioned a growing list of raffle and auction items: Pink Zebra candles, All That Jazz consignment, Longneck’s Grill and Pampered Chef. “Also Walt Disney World has given us tickets for this year,

Joe and Cris Suesz of Burlington are organizing the ninth annual Cherish the Memories Valentine’s Day Dance. The event will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati.PROVIDED

Pioneer Vending is doing a jukebox for the live auction and whoever wins that they deliver and set it up in their home with 100 CDs,” Biddle said. “We have lots of nice items.” Getting the word out about Cherish the Memories Valentine’s Dance has been something of a challenge, perhaps because of all the wintry weather. So she urged people concerned about Alzheimer’s to check out the ninith annual Cherish the

Memories page on Facebook. Or call Biddle at 859-307-7175 or Suesz at 859-586-9779 for ticket information. All checks will be payable to the Alzheimer’s Association. “Not only will you have a blast but you’re also supporting to help fight and find a cure for an awful disease and helping the families that are already dealing with it,” Biddle said.

Moles not just active in warmer weather

Question: Are moles active year-round, or do they hibernate in the ground? Answer: Moles are remarkable animals known for their specialized abilities for life underground. They are seldom seen by humans and are often mistaken for pocket gophers, mice or shrews. In fact, the mole is not closely related to any small mammal except the shrew, both belonging to the mammalian order Insectivora. Moles are not rodents and do not have characteristic rodent features such as large, sharp front teeth. Rather, they have sharp, pointed teeth (like a cat) used for catching and eating grubs and earthworms. Moles often come into conflict with homeowners when they burrow in yards. The word, mole, is derived from a compound noun whose meaning is “earth thrower.” With their short legs, broad front feet and sharp, stout toenails adapted for digging, these animals do indeed move a lot of soil, especially when they dig their deep nesting cavities and “home” areas, often 18-24 inches underground with interconnecting tunnels. The shallow surface tunnels of the moles are used in the spring, summer and fall, but the deep permanent ones are used year round as the main avenues of travel. Although you might think that moles would

have quite a night life in their extensive caverns, they are actually quite antisocial, Mike living alone Klahr in their HORTICULTURE deep, dark CONCERNS underground homes, coming together only once a year when they mate around Valentine’s Day in midFebruary. Their living headquarters are six inches in diameter and lined with dried grass, leaves and other vegetation. Moles are known to be active any time of the day or night, summer or winter, although they are most active in the shallow tunnels in the spring or fall after a rain, and in the early morning or early evening. Main runways may extend as far as 900 feet in one direction, with feeding tunnels branching off to the sides. In the winter, each mole uses a single nest site, but in the summer various nest sites are used. Moles normally live for three to four years. Control methods that work include trapping, repellents such as Mole Med and Mole Exit, and poison baits containing Talpirid (i.e., “Tomcat Mole Killer”), which is incorporated into a poison “worm” and inserted into the mole’s tunnel.

Have a talk with provider before taking multivitamins Today, marketing campaigns for multivitamins and minerals claiming to improve your health and reduce your risk of chronic disease constantly bombarded us. Just look around the supermarket. Chances are, multivitamins and mineral supplements have their own section. Dietary supplements are a multibillion-dollar industry. In 2012, dietary supplement sales reached $11.5 billion. In a 2013, the U.S. Government Accountability

Office reported more than half of all U.S adults had taken a dietary supplement in the Diane past Mason month. The EXTENSION 1999-2004 NOTES National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey showed 34 percent of children and adolescents take vitamin or mineral supplements.

While our food supply in America is abundant, many of us do not get the recommended nutrients we need. And we tend to consume way too much added sugar, refined grains, sodium and saturated fat. More than 50 percent of Americans suffer from chronic diseases because of poor food choices. Should everyone take a multivitamin for better health? Are vitamins and supplements needed? Many American diets are lacking in potassium,

fiber, calcium and vitamin D. Potassium and fiber help with heart health. Fiber is important for health and digestion and helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, obesity and constipation. Calcium keeps our bones strong. Vitamin D helps our bodies absorb calcium and phosphorus. By consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein sources, and fat-free or low-fat milk and dairy, you can increase your intake of the nutrients

Everything you wanted in a college education except the debt.

lacking in the American diet and improve your health. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the best way for you to reach optimal health and reduce your risk of chronic diseases is by eating a wide variety of nutrientdense foods. The academy also says additional nutrients from supplements may help some individuals meet their dietary needs or treat a diagnosed nutrient deficiency. Multi-

vitamins and minerals can help fill dietary gaps, but if taken in excess, may result in the consumption of some nutrients above recommended levels. Talk with your health care provider or dietitian about your eating habits and how they affect your health.

The Express helps support Redwood The 2014 Redwood Express: Destination The Big Apple sponsored by Bilz Insurance will be leaving the station on Friday, March 7. The event will be 7-11:30 p.m. at Receptions in Erlanger. The celebrity emcees for the night are WLWTTV Channel 5 co-anchor Sheree Paolello and Jon Jon from Q102. More than 800 friends and supporters of Redwood are expected to attend the New York City-themed evening featuring an open bar, spirit tasting, hors d’oeuvres, live and silent auctions, raffles and more. Guests will have the chance to relax and enjoy live performances, in addition to a shot at $5,000 cash. Last year the Redwood Express raised more than $100,000 to help support the programs that serve more than 800 children and adults with disabilities. Local media personalities will be serving wine to guests from 7-11 p.m. Admission to the Redwood Express is $60 per person in advance and $65 at the station. To order raffle and admission tickets call 859-3310880 or visit Proceeds from the event will directly support enriching educational, therapeutic, and voca-

tional programs that empower individuals with disabilities to achieve independence and reach their full potential – individuals like Cale. When Cale’s mother first learned she was pregnant, she had the same hopes and dreams for her child that most parents have. She envisioned her riding her first bike, preparing for school, and playing with friends. When her daughter, Cale, was born, her hopes turned into concerns. Geneticists diagnosed her with arthrogryposis, a rare condition characterized by stiff joints and abnormally developed muscles. Cale enrolled in Redwood’s Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care program, which specializes in stabilizing health conditions for children with complex health needs and medical fragility. Cale’s mother has noticed the benefits, seeing Cale develop and progress just as she always believed she could. Cale now enjoys things she struggled with prior to Redwood, like dancing to music, making crafts, and playing with other children. It is for Cale and others like her that Redwood hosts the Express each year.

Community & Technical College CE-0000583076


A tobacco-free campus will welcome students for Thomas More College’s 2014-2015 school year. The announcement was made internally to students on January 27. The tobacco-free policy will take effect campus-wide June 1. This policy will apply to all areas of campus at all times, including evening classes and sporting events. A task force is in the process of drafting the final policy and smoking cessation programs are being developed. Educational programs will provide students, staff and faculty the opportunity to prepare for the policy and get the support they need to stop using tobacco. Dates for these classes will be listed on our website once they are scheduled. “Thomas More College is excited to join the growing number of colleges and universities

that have taken this important step in providing a healthy environment for the students, faculty, staff and friends of the institution. We recognize the significance of this decision for some people and are going to take a compassionate approach focused on health and well being,” said college president David A. Armstrong. “This is an important step towards campus wellness. The policy will make campus a more clean and safe environment. We want to give everyone time to prepare and give our task force time to instigate support services, which is why we chose an effective date of June 1. It will also give us time to work through challenges and concerns,” said Matthew Webster, Vice president of operations & community affairs at Thomas More College.

ENorthern X PKentucky O SAffordable ED! Care Health Insurance

Who Benefits from the new affordable care health insurance? From our extensive research, we have found that most people will benefit from Obama Care. The overwhelming fact is that middle class families will have more coverage and lower premiums under the Affordable Care Act. I will list some key benefits that I have found: 1. Less expensive premiums for working class families 2. No pre-existing conditions exclusions 3. No limit on your total health insurance benefit 4. We found it is much easier to understand what is covered under your policy 5. It is much easier to compare plans between competing insurance companies 6. GONE is the stringent underwriting designed to turn down the very people that needed health insurance

7. More competition based off of service and individual needs less about insurance profits and negotiated network rates 8. A single market place to shop and compare health insurance quotes “kyconnect” 9. Broader coverage’s are included in all policies like maternity care coverage 10. A brand new non profit insurance company “Kentucky Health Coop” designed to compete with the established companies

Below are some real life examples of what you will pay for Kentucky Health Insurance.

Example based on a family of 4. As you will see by the example, the premium you pay is based on your income, not the premium cost. Adjusted Gross Income $50,000 $50,000 $50,000 $50,000 $50,000

Oldest Family Member Age 30 35 40 45 50

Premium $834 $903 $939 $1061 $1312

Tax Credit $442 $511 $548 $670 $921

Actual Premium Cost $391.60 $391.60 $391.60 $391.60 $391.60

So what makes us different from everyone else?

Much like other government initiated programs, it is extremely important to have someone working for you that knows your insurance qualifications. We have seen many problems with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. There can be confusion as to the amount of your income. Your income is based on your federal tax return modified adjusted gross income. It is not based on your W2. Certain income sources don’t count as income, like disability or child support. It is also important to have an agent that understands your individual needs, like is your doctor or pediatrician included in an insurance company’s network, or what is the cost of your prescription medication under the different insurance policies? We are experienced health insurance agents. We will walk you through the confusion and help you make the choice that best fits your needs. You can call us or fill out the quote form above and we will contact you!
