Local leaders encourage pension reform By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

Local leaders are taking a stand against rising pension costs, passing resolutions supporting reforms to the County Employees Retirement System. The Boone County Fiscal Court and the city of Florence recently passed resolutions, almost verbatim the resolution passed in Union earlier in February, “supporting reforms to the County Employees Retirement System (CERS) to make the plan sustainable, sound and secure for current and future employees.” The resolutions, all of which “strongly encourages” the Kentucky General Assembly to make these reforms during the current legislative session, support recommendations made by the Task Force on Kentucky Public Pensions. Each resolution “strongly supports” the adoption of a hybrid cash balance plan, resetting the amortization period for CERS for payment of the unfunded liability to a new 30year period, eliminating the automatic cost of living adjustment for current and future retirees and increasing representation on the Kentucky Retirement Systems Board of Trustees “representing local government associations including the Kentucky Association of Counties” or from a list submitted by the Kentucky League of Cities (in

Homemakers make blankets for babies

By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — The sewing machines were humming and the conversations were flowing freely on a bitter cold February morning as members of the Boone County Extension Homemakers group gathered in Burlington to make blankets for babies born prematurely. The ladies laugh and sometimes joke, but their focus this morning is on sewing the baby

blankets (as well as seat belt covers, caps and heart pillows for cancer patients). This isn’t anything new. The group, which meets the third Wednesday of the month from January to May, has made around 7,000 blankets since first starting the endeavor in 2000, member Linda Padgett said. The blankets, donated to St. Elizabeth hospitals, are given to children born prematurely. When donated materials

aren’t able to be used for those projects, Padgett says the group also makes blankets for the homeless. While the project started small, “it keeps growing and growing,” she said. It’s one of the Homemakers’ community projects. “The Homemakers have reached out into the community in many different ways,” she said. See BLANKETS, Page A2

the case of cities). The resolution approved by the Boone County Fiscal Court goes one step further and recommends considering an increase in the employee contribution for current employees “if such increase would not be deemed in conflict with the inviolable contract provisions of the state constitution.” In a phone conversation, Boone County Administrator Jeff Earlywine said required Earlywine pension contributions are a “very costly component” to the county budget. The county, he said, spends “over $5 million a year on reThayer quired pension contributions to the state system.” Earlywine said the current system isn’t sustainable for the long term. Non-hazardous employees contribute 5 percent of their salary and the county picks up the rest of the required cost, which is about 19.5 percent in the current year, he explained. Hazardous employees, like those working for a police or fire department or the jail staff, contribute 8 percent of their salaries and employers See PENSION, Page A2

Homemakers group hosts international tea By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — The Boone County Extension Homemakers sampled the tastes of Indonesia without leaving Boone County. The group hosted its annual international tea Feb. 26 at the Boone County Extension Office in Burlington. Christy Eastwood, county extension agent for 4-H youth development, traveled to Indonesia last June.

CE-0000544602

The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture received a grant on globalizing agriculture education. Eastwood was one of 10 who traveled to the country on an agricultural tour, visiting a sustainable pineapple plantation, a coffee tree farm, meeting with farmers and touring different locations. The purpose, she said, was to come back and write curriculum or lesson plans that would relate to their own settings. Because of her travels, the

Homemakers asked her to do a presentation. Those in attendance sampled tempeh, which is fermented soy beans, and durian fruit, which Eastwood said she would “compare to nothing.” “You either love it or hate it.” There will also be samples of the world’s most expensive coffee, kopi luwak. Civets eat coffee berries, digest then excrete the coffee beans and “farmers

Jones looks ahead to WV school board term By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

WALTON — Megan Jones of Verona is starting her tenure on the Walton-Verona Independent Schools Board of Education. “We have some goals already set and we’re working toward them,” she said following the Jan. 31 school board meeting. “I’m excited about that.” Born and raised in Walton, Jones is a Walton-Verona grad herself. “I moved back here for my kids to go to school here,” she said. “So it’s a good district. It’s a great school. I just want to see it continue to get better and better every year.”

Jones served on the site-based council for four years at the elementary school level. “I’m just looking forward to a cohesive board that can make decisions that are going to better the district moving forward.” According to Jones, the board of education is looking into “some different things as far as the safety of the students” as well as communication. She’d like to see more involvement from the community and the staff. “So hopefully, reaching out in different ways (like) social media communication, we’ll get more of the community, the parents and teachers involved.”

Blankets Continued from Page A1

Cooperative extension agent Katie Smallwood said the ladies gather and provide “a very fun, social avenue to do a really good project for the community.” It’s important for the group to undertake such efforts to show that there are local organizations that care during difficult times. According to Smallwood, the group finished around 288 blankets last month. “They work very fast, they talk, they have a great social time and (are) doing a good work for the community.”

Of her trip, Eastwood said after seeing things like the poverty, water supply and the workforce, she gained a better appreciation for where she lives. “Just seeing all of those things and taking for granted the things we have over here, gave me a greater appreciation for what we have.” During the tea, Eastwood will give a presentation and share photos and souvenirs brought back. The tea is a longtime tradition, said Katie Smallwood, Boone County family and consumer sciences agent. Every year, it’s a “unique, one-of-a-kind program.” While some people have never traveled out of the country, it’s “cool to hear firsthand from someone who has stepped on (that soil).”

put in the remainder of the required 37 percent. Those numbers have “increased rapidly” over the last 10 or 15 years, he said. “Even contributing that amount, the pension system is still noticeably underfunded.” Even at those rates, there still won’t be enough funding to “fully meet the future obligations of the retirement system,” Earlywine said. “We have seen our rates rise dramatically in recent years and we just cannot continue to make the kind of contribution required of us.” That’s where the reform comes in, he said, to find another structure to pension benefits that have a long-term sustainability. Earlywine said there’s “a whole lot of us in local government” with high expectations that “something could happen” this legislative session. Sen. Damon Thayer introduced Senate Bill 2, relating to retirement, which has made it through the Senate. If nothing is done this session, the cost will continue to escalate, Earlywine said. “Pension obligations will eat up more and more of our resources,” he said. Since local governments don’t administer the system, aside from reducing staffing levels, Earlywine said there’s “very little we can do to control our costs.” “The sooner we can change course and start to move in a more positive direction, the sooner we’re going to be able to have a system that’s sustainable, more cost effective (and) one (that) demands less of our resources in the long term.”

Arts group offers scholarship to Boone County students By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

Young artists in Boone County can get monetary support thanks to a new scholarship from the Boone County Visual Arts Association. All Boone County high school students in grades 9-12 are eligible to compete for the $500 scholarship in the first BCVAA High School Art Scholarship Competition, the group’s first juried art exhibit showcasing local students. BCVAA member Linda Whittenburg said money raised from a raffle at a December art show went toward the scholarship. “We just felt it was important to support our local young people,” she said. While there’s no restriction on the use of the cash award, Whittenburg said organizers hope the

money is used for tuition or art supplies “to further their art studies.” “We’ve grown to the point where we’re a strong group and we have some extra funds and we felt we needed to give back (to) the community,” she said. The group, Whittenburg said, struggled for many years but has “really grown into its own.” “The community has supported us, so we’re going to do a little to thank

them for that.” The competition is open to students working in all visual media. Selected artists will be featured in an April group exhibition at the Main branch of the Boone County Public Library. Awards, announced at the exhibition’s April 26 reception, will be given based on displayed originality, self-expression, technical skill and emergence of personal vision. The $500 scholarship will be awarded to the piece nominated as “best in show” by the BCVAA. Each student may enter up to three pieces of artwork.

supported America’s revolutionary cause. The Northern Kentucky chapter has four formal gatherings a year. At this one they listened carefully as students read their winning essays, like Beechwood High School student Evan Bishop who talked about John Adams, a leading advocate for independence who went on to become America’s second president. Bishop won the Knight Essay contest for sophomores through seniors. Lisa Heiert, who teaches at Notre Dame Academy, won the chapter’s American History Teacher of the Year award. Saying she prides herself on doing things differently, Heiert said there’s no better feeling than seeing her students’ eyes light up when they truly get a concept. “I teach to show them history isn’t about memorizing a bunch of names, dates and facts.

Many families rebuilt since tornadoes By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

Ask Maci Becraft “What happened to your old house?” and she’ll say, “The tornado took it away.” She got a new house on Paxton Road, where Maci and her parents, Katie and Nathan, celebrated her second birthday in September. They moved into their new home in November, eight months after the tornadoes of March 2, 2012, which was listed by the National Climactic Data Center as the first of 11, billion-dollar “extreme” natural disasters of the year. The NCDC report does not include a dollar estimate for damages from the event, in which 75 confirmed tornadoes claimed the lives of 42 people across six states. As a result of the EF4 Level tornadoes in Kenton County, the most severe of 19 Kentucky tornadoes, four people died, 88 homes were destroyed and hundreds more were damaged. Maci looks at photos of the tornado wreckage and says, “That is broke.” The family moved into their 700-square-foot house in 2009, and their new home is more than twice the size, 1,500 square feet, not counting the basement, with a concrete-enforced storm room. “Everybody seems to be doing that out here,” said Nathan, who has construction experience. He not only rebuilt their

house, he spent months helping several other family members nearby rebuild as well. The Becrafts were across the street, in the basement with Nathan’s parents, when the storm pulled the porch off their house. When water came pouring through the light fixtures, they thought the house was gone above them, but Katie said “only part of the roof” had been ripped away. “The tornado brought out the best and the worst in people,” she said. “So many people came out to help. God bless all the people who came to help.” They said they were disappointed in the time it took to get help from their insurance company, and that they didn’t receive any help from national or local charitable organizations, except from the Disabled American Veterans. “Don’t call and donate over the phone. If you want to give money to someone, just hand it to them. Just drive and you’ll see somebody working and just give them $20 or whatever,” said Nathan. “I would never in my life donate to the American Red Cross, not after this.” The biggest lesson they learned, was that all homeowners should know the details of their insurance policies. “Definitely go over your insurance policy. Do that for sure,” said Katie. Connie Mardis agrees. “Look at your insurance policy. You need a

working in Louisville, and she was driving home and pulled over in Richwood when the storms struck. “We only had our cars and the clothes we were wearing. It’s a really strange feeling knowing all you have is what you’re wearing. You don’t even have a change of underwear,” Connie said. She said they moved into their new home in December, after living in an apartment in Alexandria. “It was real strange because we didn’t have anything to bring with us,” she said. She said they chose not to build a storm room, be-

certified copy of it. You need to build a relationship with your agent,” she said. Connie and her husband, Paul, have built a new home on Bagby Road, where many houses were leveled by the tornado, along with theirs. “Even if you have insurance, it doesn’t kick in for a long, long time. You don’t just pick up the phone and call the insurance company and pick up a check,” she said. “I can’t say it enough. Check your insurance policy. It could be a fire. It could be another tornado. It could be anything.” Connie said she would have liked to have had more guidance through the process. “There’s so much to deal with. You are standing there and everything you own is gone. It would have been nice to have someone help you find a place to stay or to help you get food and clothing. Here, they had set up a central area, but we didn’t know that. All we knew was there was chaos and

Neighbors helping neighbors. People showed their true colors during this whole thing,” she said. “It’s good to see lights on around here in the evenings. It’s kind of like we’re back in business around here.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet at @AmyScalfNky

A special conference for parents, educators and families! Are you interested in outdoor play, getting your child ready to read or how your child learns through play? Well, these topics and dozens more will be covered at the fifth annual Learning Through Play conference on March 2, 2013.

Along with Katelyn Gabbard, Nathan Garbig and Allie Singleton, Browning tested the metallic object for mass and volume to determine its density, which measured 6.35 grams per cubic centimeter - part way between the densities of iron and hematite, both substances that could make up a meteorite. Gabbard said the object conducts a small amount of electricity, which she said is a meteorite characteristic. The object was not at-

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS —

Testing an unidentified object Walton-Verona Elementary students found in a Piner park was going to allow Bill Schneider’s Integrated Science class a chance to use the tests they’d talked about and to share the results. After a meteor exploded in the Russian sky, he wondered if his Northern Kentucky University students were going to make headline news of their own. “Whether this turns out to be a meteorite or not, we’re really just testing to help these kids

tracted to a magnet, so Garbig sought to find metals that could conduct electricity but aren’t magnetic: aluminum, gold, copper and brass. “If we can confirm it’s not a meteorite, we can research what kind of metal it is,” said Browning. Schneider said the timing of the Russian meteor and this project was “just perfect.” “When the news of that meteor hit, I thought, we really have a chance to practice what we teach. What we’re trying to do here is relevant. Students can see they take what they learned last week and use it to figure something out,” he said.

Tornado response committee shifts focus By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

The Northern Kentucky Long Term Recovery Committee – originally formed online to coordinate volunteers and donations after the March 2, 2012, tornadoes – is beginning to wind down into maintenance mode. Committee Chair Lisa Raterman, who formerly split the title with Piner Baptist Church Pastor B.J. Donahue, said the group will slow down their meeting schedule, but maintain their connections in case of future disasters. “We are still assisting a

few families, but that process is in its final stages. We’re looking at our last official meetings for the tornado response,” said Raterman. “We’re going to have some meetings regarding the future of the committee. We want to keep the structure in place on some level, and maybe meet to touch base once a year, so that we’re ready for the next thing, whatever that is, whether it’s a year from now or five years from now.” She said she wanted to keep the “right partners at the table.” The committee, whose online presence is on Facebook as Northern

Kentucky Long Term Recovery Committee, includes nonprofit and charitable organizations along with churches, corporations and other entities. Email and voicemail for the group has stayed the same: NKYTornadoRecovery@gmail.com, and 859-363-5872. “The most important thing moving forward is that if there are groups who want to reach out to us, who want to be involved as partners in this group, now is the time to connect,” she said.

featured casino style games and raised money for multiple local charities. The event took place one week before Turfway’s Spiral Stakes in March. The Chamber organized the event for the first 10 years, but pulled out as last year’s was being organized, said Jack Gordon, director of sales and marketing for Turfway Park. “They decided it was not in their best interest to run the event late last year, so we decided to handle it,” Gordon said. The event is run on sponsorship dollars, and many companies who felt comfortable giving money to the Chamber for an event didn’t have the same level of comfort giving money to a gaming organization, Gordon said.

With sponsorship dollars hard to come by, Turfway decided to not hold the event this year, he said. “Our plans are to resurrect it, or do something like it in future years,” Gordon said. By taking a break, it gives organizers some extra time to make improvements, he said. “In our mind, it is not finished. We just may need to tweak it,” Gordon said. Since a lot of the struggle to raise the money is centered around Turfway’s status as a gaming facility, Gordon hopes to find someone else to take the reins. “We’re trying to find a third party entity who can handle it,” he said.

Teachers start opera company By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

CINCINNATI — Two Boone County High School voice teachers are putting on their first opera. Shawn Mlynek and Autumn West recently graduated from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and founded the Cincinnati Chamber Opera. “We decided we wanted to start our own company,” Mlynek said. After looking at the kind of

opera being performed in the area, Mlynek and West saw a need for some of the more emerging artists’ work to be performed, he said. “The Cincinnati area is an artistically hungry area,” Mlynek said. The new company is showing its first production, “Acis and Galatea,” March 1-3, in Cincinnati. The company raised the funding needed for the production through the crowdfunding website kickstarter.com. The process of putting on a

production has been an eyeopening experience for Mlynek and West, who spent their time in school focused on performing and got little Mlynek training in the administrative aspects of scheduling, booking locations and funding, Mlynek said. “It’s been awesome, and it’s been very difficult at the same time,” he said. The two have worked to get

the production together while continuing their roles as voice teachers at Boone County High School. Mlynek has worked at the West school for two years, while West started a year ago. Their time working at the school has helped them become a lot more familiar with the area, Mlynek said. “We have such a heart for Boone County and Florence,”

he said. It wouldn’t surprise Mlynek to have some of his former students on the Cincinnati Chamber Opera stage in a few years, he said. “The students there are just so talented and motivated,” Mlynek said.

The Notre Dame Urban Education Center is an organization of the Sisters of Notre Dame for urban students. Volunteers high school aged and above are welcome to help. “We’re doing a program teaching them about art around the world,” Carney explained. For four weeks they work with the students, taking them on an imaginary trip to London to learn about English art. First, the students learned about where Kentucky is in relation to England, then about England. “We talked about what they’d see, how they’d get there, what the climate is like and how to pack a suitcase,” Carney explained. Outreach is part of the Taft’s mission, which is why docents go to educate students. This is the first year the Taft has come to the Notre Dame

Brady thrilled with state title repeat By James Weber jweber@nky.com

LOUISVILLE — Sharli Brady

didn’t expect to break her Kentucky state record in the 500yard freestyle, so she was pleased with her overall result Feb. 23. The Cooper High School junior lost her status as defending state champion in that event, but retained her title in the 200-yard individual medley during the state meet at the University of Louisville. The one title was enough for Brady, who was happy to be competing as she thought of young Clippers club teammate Elizabeth Smith. Smith, an 8year-old girl from Erlanger, is battling bone cancer but has still been competing in club meets. “Before I race I dedicate every race to her because I feel so lucky to be able to be here and to be able to swim,” Brady said. Brady defended her state championship in the individual medley, winning in 2:00.67 to touch the wall 1.53 seconds ahead of second place. “I felt good,” she said. “I love the IM; it’s probably my favorite event. I’ve been training a lot and I think I did really well. I was pretty nervous before the IM, but my club coach being here and being around people who really love swimming really

UNION — Tim Sullivan had a hunch Spencer Holland would have a good night. The Cooper head boys basketball coach didn’t know how much of a hero his junior guard would become, or how much postseason drama his Jaguars would be involved in. Sullivan was still in disbelief long after Cooper outlasted rival Conner 72-68 in double overtime Feb. 21 in the 33rd District semifinals, advancing to the Ninth Region Tournament and ending the Cougars’ season. Holland had 24 points to lead the way, including several key shots in crunch time. “I said to our scorekeeper before the game, watch for No. 12; he’s probably going to have a big night,” Sullivan said. “I didn’t think he would go out and get 24 points. He is a self-made player. He works as hard as he can every single day in practice.” Holland had a big second quarter as Conner led by one at the half. The Cougars stormed ahead with 11 straight points to start the second quarter and led by 11 going into the fourth. They gradually clawed their way back, and despite Conner being near-perfect from the freethrow line down the stretch, Cooper had the ball, down three, in the final seconds. Senior guard A.J. Collins delivered, making an off-balance trey with nine seconds left to send the game to OT. Collins was quick to credit his backcourt mate for giving the Jags a chance. “Spencer Holland really led the way,” Collins said. “He made big shots. He’s a really good kid. He works hard every day in practice. He had this coming.” Cooper had beaten its similar-named foe (13-15) by 11 points twice this year, but Sullivan knew the postseason meeting wouldn’t be easy. “They were absolutely phenomenal,” Sullivan said. “They were so prepared, they did an unbelievable job, they played with passion. They weren’t going to just roll over and die and let us walk into the championship game. They did a good job of taking away what we do well.” They are now one of the regional favorites after gradually building their way up in their fifth year of existence. “In this district, you can throw one through four in the

hat, you’ll have a dogfight,” Sullivan said. “We tried to be the spoiler a couple of years ago and now we’re on the other side and we’re learning how to handle that situation.” Two nights later, Cooper won its second 33rd District title in a row by beating Ryle. Both teams played in the regional quarterfinals after print deadlines. Ryle (12-16) advanced with a 69-51 over Boone County, ending the Rebels’ (13-16) reign as Ninth Region champions. Junior center Will Stuhr dominated play with 23 points and 23 rebounds. “We just came out and played hard, and let the rest take care of itself,” Stuhr said. “We got their main guy, Brenden Stanley, in foul trouble. Our guards took advantage of that and drove the basket and either dished or got the layup.” The Raiders have been up and down and Stuhr is a key to any upswing. “We’ve learned through the season that when Will plays well and gets to touch the ball quite a bit, we’re pretty good,” said head coach Alan Mullins. “We learned from our games against them that the ball had to go into the paint. Our guards played outstanding. They made good decisions and took care of the basketball.”

CINCINNATI — At the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum Feb. 19, the Cincinnati Reds and InGame Sports announced the 64team field for the second-annual Reds Futures High School Showcase. The event begins March 25 and runs through April 15 featuring teams from southeastern Indiana, northern Kentucky and southwestern Ohio. The event culminates with all 64 teams in a “March at the Majors” parade before the Reds/ Marlins game April 21. In a year’s time, the prep showcase has grown dramatically, according to Tom Gamble of In-Game Sports. “Last year we had 25 games involving 50 schools,” he said. “This year, 32 games involving 64 schools and 20 of the schools are new.” Games are slated to be played at Northern Kentucky University, Xavier, UC, Prasco Park, Western Hills and Reds Community Fund fields in Batavia, Winton Terrace and Roselawn. The marriage with the Reds is perfect as everyone in the Tristate always looks fondly upon their alma mater and anything involving the wishbone C. “If you are from Cincinnati, you’re always talking about what high school you went to,” Reds Vice President and Princeton High graduate Karen Forgus said. “That’s just how we are around here.” Reds COO and distinguished Summit Country Day alum Phil Castellini also voiced his support. “This is important in developing future Reds players and future Reds fans,” Castellini said. “We’re proud to be associated with this. We’re going to

continue this and hopefully it gets stronger and stronger each year.” Among the participants, Division I Ohio champion Moeller will take on La Salle at Prasco Park April 11. “It’s an honor that the Reds would jump on board and sponsor this and bring that notoriety back to the high school game,” Crusaders coach Tim Held said. Northern Kentucky has numerous representatives playing at NKU, including Newport Central Catholic and Covington Catholic on March 28.

“I told them one of the things they get to do is go to the Reds game against the Marlins and be down on the field before the game,” Newport Catholic Coach Jeff Schulkens said. “They’re real fired up about the opportunity.” Likewise, Coach Chris Fiehrer’s Wyoming Cowboys are happy a 2012 postseason run got them invited to the spring affair. Wyoming will play at Western Hills April 2. “All of the kids returning are really excited to get going,” he said. “They’re also excited to go down on the field in the parade.” Tickets for the Reds Futures Showcase games are $5 and good for all games that day. Each ticket also comes with a voucher good for a free View Level ticket to select Reds regular season games at Great American Ballpark and a coupon for a free Skyline Chili cheese coney. Tickets will be available at the participating schools and on game days at the host facilities.

Tea Party mistakes regarding McConnell

In a recent article, one of the Northern Kentucky Tea Party elite said in reference to the U.S. Senate race of Mitch McConnell, “My concern … is that in the same way that Romney was unable to defeat Obama, Mitch McConnell will be unable to defeat Ashley Judd.” Look at the 2012 Presidential election results in Kentucky. Mitt Romney got almost 61 percent (60.5 percent) and Barack Obama got less than 38 percent (37.8 percent). McConnell will defeat Judd handily. As to the elitist’s comment “… conservatives wouldn’t or couldn’t support Romney.” The results above said they did. I personally know Tea Partiers who worked for Romney, putting up signs, making phone calls and going door-to-door. Those TPs helped Romney get his impressive Kentucky victory. I am not a Tea Party member. I am a Republican activist

with more than 28 years on the Kenton County Republican Party Executive Committee. The Tea Party’s hyperconservatism Ted Smith has gotten me COMMUNITY to the point RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST where the term “conservative” causes me to retch. The Tea Party has been a disaster in U.S. Senate races. Republicans had good chances to win several seats in 2010 and 2012 but state Tea Parties injected their candidates into the primaries and the results were disastrous. The TPs won the primaries then lost the general elections. In the 2010 races: » Colorado: Ken Buch (TP) beat GOP candidate Jane Norton in the primary then lost the general election to Michael Bennett (D) keeping the seat

Session is past halfway point The Kentucky General Assembly passed the halfway point of the 2013 Legislative Session this past week, yet several major issues are left to be resolved. Despite the continued delay and frustration we continue to efforts to push forward major items of legislation. Meanwhile, often there is legislation that doesn’t make headlines, but quietly rise out of personal experience of the legislator and citizens Addia we serve, HB Wuchner 172 is one of COMMUNITY those proposed RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST bills. Watching any child suffer from a lifethreatening health emergency is tragic. When it is a member of your own family, it is a heart-wrenching nightmare. I lived that nightmare several years ago when our grandson went into anaphylactic shock from a previously unknown food allergy. As a registered nurse, I immediately understood the severity of the situation. We were in the car when the allergic reaction occurred. Changing our course my daughter drove directly to the hospital. I knew we had little time. I rushed from the car carrying my grandson immediately into the ER past the registration desk straight to the back calling out for epinephrine and a doctor. At the hospital, he received an epinephrine injection which saved his life. Allergic or “anaphylactic” reactions are also extremely hard to predict and are most commonly caused by insect bites, medications, latex or foods. When someone has an allergic reaction they may experience hives, swelling, difficulty breathing and some so severe and their onset so rapid they require immediate medical attention. Anaphylactic reactions are

treated through the immediate injection of epinephrine – the medical term for adrenaline – which can quickly reverse the symptoms of a reaction. This medication is often administered via inexpensive and easy to use epinephrine auto-injectors. I have met many parents, grandparents and children who share the same frightening and life-changing event like our grandson’s. Parents and children living with a lifethreatening allergy, learn to read every label, bring their own snacks to school and birthday parties and carry an auto-injector or EpiPen with them. Children are especially at risk because they are constantly exposed to new and different things and may still unknowingly have an allergy. Since children spend six of their waking hours at school it would be prudent for schools keep these lifesaving medicines on hand. That is why again this year I have filed legislation (HB 172) recommending all Kentucky schools to keep epinephrine auto-injectors on campus in case of a severe allergic emergency and have an anaphylactic emergency plan. Protecting Kentucky children against a life-threatening medical emergency should never be a question, yet some Kentucky school officials and school boards are concerned about the cost to schools. Good news: Thanks to the launch of the Free EpiPen4 Schools Program from Mylan pharmaceutical company, schools can now receive two 2-Pak ephedrine auto-injector sets preschool year at no cost. House Bill 172 passed the House Education Committee on Thursday. I hope Kentucky school children can count passage of HB 172 this session and to Governor Beshear signing HB 172 into law this spring. Rep. Addia Wuchner is a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives.

COMMUNITY RECORDER

A publication of

Democrat. » Delaware: Christine O’Donnell (TP) beat GOP candidate Mike Castle in the primary then lost the general election to Chris Cooms (D) keeping the seat Democrat. » Nevada: Sharron Angle (TP) beat GOP candidate Sue Lowden in the primary then lost the general election to Harry Reid (D) keeping the seat Democrat and Reid as Senate Majority Leader. The Tea Party got Harry Reid reelected in 2010. The Tea Party candidates won the primaries because their hyper-conservatism appealed to more conservative Republicans who outnumbered the more moderate and liberal ones. However, the Tea Party candidates lost the general elections because their voter base was too narrow. Moderates, liberals and Democrats wouldn’t vote for them because of their stridency.

Look what happens when a Republican candidate can draw from a bigger base. In 2010, the New Hampshire Senate seat was held by Republican Senator Judd Gregg who was retiring. Kelly Ayotte, the GOP candidate and a more moderate conservative defeated Ovide Lamontagne (TP) in the primary. Ayotte got 38 percent of the vote and Lamontagne got 37 percent. But in the general election, Ayotte got 60 percent and Paul Hodes (D) got only 36.8 percent. Why did Ayotte do so well? Because, as a more moderate, she appealed to a broader range of voters and the results show it. In 2012, the Tea Party repeated their mistake in Indiana. (TP) Richard Mourdock beat incumbent GOP U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar in the primary then lost the general election to Joe Donnelly, a Blue-Dog Democrat. It was Colorado,

Delaware and Nevada all over again, only this time, we lost a Republican seat. The Tea Party is making two major mistakes: 1) they have spent their time “taking out” Republicans who aren’t considered “conservative” enough by injecting themselves into primary races and defeating the Republicans. The TPs should be working to defeat Democrats, not Republicans, and 2) they need to understand they can’t do anything to improve government if they can’t win the general elections. In Kentucky, the Tea Partier elitists seem out to sabotage U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell because he isn’t “conservative” enough to suit their tastes. That would be another incredibly stupid mistake. Ted Smith, of Park Hills, is former chairman of the Kenton County Republican Party.

Ky. cracks Top 10 in education Failure and lagging behind. That used to be Kentucky’s national story when it came to schools, and so the release of any education rankings was cause for embarrassed cringing. No longer. Thanks to decades of hard work and aggressive policy changes, Kentucky has a new reputation: National leader. And it’s a cause of celeSteve Beshear bration. That new and Terry narrative was Holliday bolstered and COMMUNITY solidified by RECORDER GUEST COLUMNISTS the recent update of one of the education world’s most respected and comprehensive assessments of school performance and improvement. The publication Education Week – a national, independent source that relies on comprehensive research and current realities – ranked Kentucky 10th in the nation in its annual “Quality Counts” report. The report is based on an assessment of more than 150 key education indicators, and grades states on their education policy efforts and outcomes. The seeds of Kentucky’s improvement were sown with the passage of the Kentucky Education Reform Act in 1990 and later with the approval of 2009’s Senate Bill 1 – both of which demanded significant changes in teaching and assessments. As a result, Kentucky has moved up in the Education Week rankings for the past several years. In 2010, we placed 34th in the nation. Last year we jumped to 14th. And with the 2013 report, Kentucky has broken into the top 10 with a grade of B-, bettering the national average of C+. The highest ranked state was Maryland with a B.

“Quality Counts” examines a wide range of policies and results. On one level, it’s a measure of current performance, but it’s also a measure of forward progress. Clearly, Kentucky is on the move. Most notably, Kentucky ranked in the top 20 in four out of the six categories examined. The state was recognized for: » connecting the K-12 education system with early learning, higher education and the world of work. » efforts to improve teaching. » K-12 achievement. (Kentucky was among the states showing the most rapid improvement.) » standards, assessments and accountability. We can, and should, be proud of these statistics. They reflect the amazing work being undertaken by teachers, administrators, staff, board members, parents, students, business and community leaders and lawmakers. It is difficult work. Yet, despite budget cuts, no money for textbooks, higher expectations, new standards and a new testing and accountability system, Kentucky teachers and students are succeeding. However, there is one area of the “Quality Counts” report that we should heed as a warning and as a clarion call for action. That is the area of school finance. In education funding, Kentucky failed miserably – a low F. Kentucky spends $1,685 less per pupil than other states on average, and only

about 12 percent of our students go to school in districts with funding that matches or exceeds the national average (adjusted for regional cost differences). We have much to celebrate in this “Quality Counts” report. But imagine where our students could be if we were adequately funding our schools. The recession and its aftermath required 13 separate budget reductions. While basic classroom funding was preserved, an increase in the number of students meant less money spent per student and reduced services to children. Our basic funding formula for classroom funding – Support Educational Excellence in Kentucky (SEEK) – has not changed since 2008. If we continue to flat-fund our classrooms, the progress we’ve made, as noted in “Quality Counts,” will stagnate or possibly erode. Our children will be the ones who lose. We could and we should be doing more to adequately fund education in Kentucky. It’s time we find new revenue that both fosters economic activity and also allows us to invest in our people, our workforce and our schools. It is an investment in Kentucky’s future and one that will pay off exponentially with a more competitive workforce, stronger economy and improved quality of life for the people of the commonwealth. The authors are Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and Education Commissioner Terry Holliday.

Girl Scout tea has an international flavor By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

UNION — The white-walled commons

area of Cooper High School bursts to life with the colors of the world as more than 250 Girl Scouts gather together to explore 20 countries on World Thinking Day. In celebration of the Girl Scout holiday, Boone County troops held a Tasting Tea at the school. It was much more, however, than sipping herbal beverages. It was a hands-on opportunity to stimulate the mind and senses. “I think learning about other places and cultures is a fun and important part of any good education,” said Stephanie Fuller, troop leader and an event coordinator. “I especially think it’s important for Girl Scouts because we are trying to create leaders who will make positive change not only in their families and local communities, but also the global community. An event like this can also be an eye-opener.” Twenty troops from Boone County selected a country and created a display including facts, artifacts and artwork, as well as “tastes” of a national dish or

beverage. Some displays also included craft-making, like a Brazilian mask. The booth hosts even dressed in costumes native to their selected nation. Every visiting Girl Scout made a small donation for each “taste” which went toward the Juliette Gordon Low World Friendship Scholarship Fund. Elizabeth Apollonio, 11, of Burlington, made a stop at England. She saw Big Ben, learned about Pax Lodge, and even met the queen, well in spirit anyway. “All the countries are all really cool,” she said. “I like England. I really like the doll (of the queen) and the tea was really good.” She traveled far across the commons area from Thailand, the display she helped organize. “I loved doing the Thailand display,” Apollonio said. “My uncle is Thai. I like explaining about the country to others. One of the most interesting things about Thailand is that it is the land of white elephants because the ruler gives white elephants as gifts to visitors. They’re a symbol of royalty.” Just a little across the way “in Russia” Libby Brockman, 11, stands patiently with her arm extended and the words

“push” written in red on the back of her hand. Once pushed, she springs to life, her legs flying quickly up and down, over and over – completing a traditional Russian dance. She’s then eager to tell fellow scouts all that she’s learned about Russia. “I can say zdravstvuj, which means hello,” said the Union resident. She goes on to tell how the Girl Scouts weren’t started in Russia until 1998, but that they have many things in common with the American Girl Scouts, like service projects, such as the World Thinking Day project. “Each year for the special holiday Girl Scouts of the United States of

America chooses a theme that focuses on ways the girls can make the world a better place,” Fuller said. “This year’s theme is improving the health of children around the world.” Boone County’s goal was to collect 400 bars of soap and have the girls reshape them with Girl Scout themed soap molds for United Ministries. Outside the commons area, Laura Hoskins, 10, takes a break from traveling to work on the project. She scoops, smooshes and works the small soap shavings into a clump before pushing it into the plastic mold. “It feels like Play-Doh,” she said. “We get to keep one and then the other we donate. Doing this makes me feel happy because it’s actually going to help somebody.” According to Fuller, the very first part of the Girl Scout promise is, “to serve God and my country.” “Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place,” Fuller said. “The girls involved in these projects learn, most importantly, that they do have the power to make a real difference.”

Nutritious combined with simple ingredients add up to an easy meal. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Simple ingredients make a delicious quiche The only reason we keep chickens is to get fresh eggs. I grew up eating eggs just about every day, especially on school days. And eggs are so versatile. If I have eggs in the refrigerator, I feel Rita like I’ve Heikenfeld got a meal, no matter RITA’S KITCHEN how lean the budget or how bare the pantry. Think about this: Eggs are all natural, and one egg has lots of vitamins and minerals with only about 70 calories. The nutrients in eggs can play a role in weight management, muscle strength, healthy pregnancy, brain function, eye health and more. Eggs got a bad rap a few years ago but now health professionals are back on the egg bandwagon – just don’t overdo eating them. One of the first table foods we feed the babies for breakfast are eggs. The protein in eggs is the highest-quality protein found in any food.

Simple quiche

Sometimes we forget about the really easy meals. Quiche is one of those. Most of us have eggs, onions and cheese on hand and those ingredients alone, with milk added, make a delicious quiche. When I want to

make the quiche special, I use whipping cream. Now be sure to mince the onions very small so they cook well. Otherwise, just sauté them in a bit of butter until they’re translucent before adding to the egg mixture. I got the original recipe, before I adapted it, from a food magazine, but can’t recall which one. 9- or 10-inch pie pan lined with pie dough 10-12 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbled (optional, but so good) 1 heaping cup shredded Swiss cheese (or your favorite, try extra sharp cheddar) 1 ⁄3 cup minced onions 4 large eggs, room temperature 2 cups whipping cream, half and half or milk About 1 teaspoon salt and 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in pan. Whisk eggs well and whisk in cream and seasonings. Pour into pan. Pour mixture into pie pan. Bake 45-60 minutes or until knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Substitute about 1 cup chopped ham or 1⁄2 pound cooked sausage for the bacon. A few dashes cayenne pepper are good in here. If crust browns too much before quiche is done, make a “collar”

of foil around the crust.

Pineapple crunch cake

Don’t look for a high and fluffy cake here. This is a moist, dense cake that keeps well in the refrigerator. Yes, it’s even better the next day. I’ve tweaked the recipe through the years and now add more vanilla than I used to. I like to toast my pecans in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes or so, until they smell fragrant, before chopping. You don’t have to toast the nuts, though. Now if you don’t add nuts, just call it pineapple cake. This is a yummy snacking cake. 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten 2 cups sugar 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄2 to 1 cup chopped pecans mixed with a little of the flour (optional) 1 20 oz. can unsweetened, undrained, crushed pineapple Extra chopped pecans for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk sugar, flour and baking soda together. Add vanilla, eggs and pineapple and blend well. Stir in nuts Pour into sprayed 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out fairly clean. Don’t overbake.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Watch for insurance rate hikes Natural disasters around the country and here in the Tristate are leading to higher insurance premiums. Although the Ohio Department of Insurance says auto and homeowner’s insurance rates are among the lowest in the country, increases are coming. The Cincinnati Insurance Board tells me increases can be expected from more and more insurance companies – and rate hikes up to 30 percent are not uncommon. Wanda Human of Reading said she had been noticing her insurance premiums going up for the past year and a half. It began with her auto insurance. “$341 every six months was very satisfactory. I dealt with it when it went to $395 every six months but when you go up to $514 every six months, come on that’s kind of ridiculous,” Human said. Human called her insurance agent and was told it was due to Hurricane Sandy and the destruction it caused on the east coast. Human said that came as quite a surprise.

“I was told if a disaster happened in your state you could see the rates going up in Howard that state, Ain but not the HEY HOWARD! whole entire United States ... The insurance agent explained to me that she had received many, many calls about this. I said, ‘Are a lot of people dropping you?’ and she said, ‘Yes, they are.’” In addition to her auto insurance, Human says she’s seen her homeowner’s premiums going up. She had it renewed once and has seen the premium go from $790 to $981 – almost a $200 increase – and that was even before the east coast storm. In talking with her insurance agent Human says she’s learned her rate hikes aren’t unusual. “She said that there are some increases of 30 percent on some people, people who hadn’t even filed any claims,” Human said. Human says she’s decided to switch to another insurance company.

I told her that’s fine but when she switches she needs to make a change in her deductible. I found her auto insurance policy has a very low $250 deductible. Human said she didn’t think that would be a problem – until now. I told her she can reduce her premium by increasing her deductible from $250 to $500. When it comes to Human’s homeowner’s insurance policy, she can decrease that premium by increasing her deductible to $1,000. Remember, filing a homeowner’s insurance claim will go against your record and your policy could be canceled if you have too many claims. Therefore, depending on the size of your house, it may even pay you to increase your deductible to $3,000. After all, homeowners insurance is really only designed to cover major losses so it often doesn’t pay to file a claim if the damage is less than $3,000.

Canda Jongakien, 9, of Union, enjoyed learning about Uganda and may visit there someday. “I like the Girl Scouts because you get to explore new things,” she said. “Today I enjoyed learning about the different countries. I like Uganda the best, I like the animals it has.” She also likes the African Peanut Butter Candy she sampled there. The taste of peanut butter with a hint of coconut left her with a smile. “I like it,” she giggled. Here is the recipe for the candy, as well as a few other treats Jongaqkien and more than 250 other Girl Scouts discovered. Troop 1135’s African Peanut Candy

Some seeds keep several years Reducing your energy costs to use twice as many seeds as normal to make up for the lower germination Mike rate. If 30 Klahr percent or HORTICULTURE fewer of CONCERNS the seeds in a packet germinate, it’s best to order or buy fresh seeds. If you depend on a good harvest from some major crops such as snap beans, sweet corn, butternut squash or pickling cucumbers, it’s probably wise to plant a mixture of new and old seeds. Buying some extra fresh seed is cheap insurance that you’ll have fresh produce available when you’re ready to preserve it. If you have some vegetable seeds remaining from this growing season, the following tips will help you keep them viable for next year’s garden. Storage conditions are very important to maintain high germination rates of leftover seeds.

Try to keep seeds as dry as possible. Although refrigeration isn’t necessary, keeping seeds cool, but not freezing, also will prolong their lives. Enclose packets of seeds in an air-tight sealed container such as a glass jar or plastic food storage container to keep them dry and protect against insect infestations and rodent feeding. Put an inch of dried powdered milk in the bottom of the jar to absorb any moisture that might be present. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

Energy costs fluctuate throughout the year, since much of our heating and cooling usage depends on Mother Nature. However, you can make your home more energy efficient and reduce some of your energy expenses by locating and switching off sources of phantom energy in your home. Plugged-in devices that are not performing their primary duty but still using electricity are said to use phantom energy. Phantom energy users include many products that have a standby mode, such as

Question: I have some old vegetable seeds left from 2012 and 2011. Will they still grow, or should I throw them out and buy all new seeds? Answer: When properly stored, most vegetable seeds will remain viable, or able to germinate, for three or more years, including tomato, carrot, pumpkin, cucumber and cabbage. However, a few vegetables (spinach, onion, and sweet corn) produce seeds that remain viable for less than two to three years. Thus, it’s best to buy fresh seeds of these vegetables every year or two. It’s easy to check the viability of vegetable seeds that are more than one year old by using the “rag doll test.” Simply wrap 10 to 20 seeds from each packet in a paper towel that’s moist, but not dripping wet. Roll or fold the paper towels to enclose the seeds and put towels in a sealed, airtight plastic bag. Put a label in with the seedcontaining paper towels, or mark the outside of the plastic bag. Put the plastic bags in a warm area where the temperature will range from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Viable seed should germinate in one to two weeks. If 75 percent or more of the seeds germinate from any given packet, plant those normally as you would in the garden. It’s still okay to use seeds if about 50 percent germinate from a packet.

Employer provided insurance declines, public increases Community Recorder

Having health insurance is an important factor in being able to get needed health care. According to the 2012 Kentucky Health Issues Poll, nearly three in 10 Kentucky working age adults (28 percent) are uninsured, similar to previous surveys. In Northern Kentucky, more than three in 10 (35 percent) of adults are uninsured. In general, as age, education level and income increased, the percentage of Kentuckians who were uninsured decreased. The poll is funded by The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and the Foundation

for a Healthy Kentucky. More than one in 10 Kentuckians ages 18-64 (13 percent) who were insured at the time of KHIP had been uninsured at some point in the past 12 months. This means that four in 10 Kentucky adults ages 18-64 had been uninsured at some point in the last 12 months, a number that has increased 10 percentage points in the past five years. Like most states, Kentucky has seen a shift in whether its residents have health insurance and if so, where they obtain that insurance. Nationally, there has been a noticeable reduction in employer-provided insurance and an accompanying shift to

public insurance. Kentucky has also experienced this trend. In 2008, more than five in 10 Kentucky adults (55 percent) got health insurance from their employer or their spouse’s employer. In 2012, fewer than four in 10 Kentucky adults (37 percent) got health insurance from an employer. More working-age adults are receiving public insurance from Medicare, Medicaid, military insurance or some combination of the three. Currently, nearly three in 10 Kentucky adults ages 18-64 (27 percent) are covered by some form of public insurance. More information is available at http://bit.ly/159dyuy.
