“This is the best case scenario,” said Superintendent Randy Poe. When legislators went back for the special session on Monday, they were expected to decide how to maintain federal stimulus money that sent more funding to schools. A Senate proposal suggests cutting the funding, which would leave Boone Schools with a total cut of about $5.9 million. “There’s no way this school system could absorb a nearly $6 million cut,” Poe said. If the additional cut comes, the district faces losing the 34 paraed-

ucators along with 23 teachers, 23 support staff and three central office employees. “We need the community to know what cuts are coming because this will affect their children,” Poe said. The cuts come after the board of education made the controversial decision to raise the property tax rates by the compensating rate plus an additional 4 percent last August. “The state wiped that away,” Poe said. While the cuts will have a neg-

ative effect on the district’s goal of having students be career and college ready, staff and administrators will continue to work as hard as they can – like they always do, said board Chairman Steve Kinman. “We’ll make it. We always have; we always will,” Kinman said. “It’s not going to be easy – it’s going to be really tough … We’re tougher than Frankfort.

Boone Schools fears 83 layoffs Looming state and federal funding cuts have Boone County Schools potentially laying off up to 83 employees. The district is looking at a total of $2.7 million in funding cuts by the end of this fiscal year. The cuts will require cutting 34 paraeducator positions. Paraeducators assist teachers and provide one-on-one assistance with students who are struggling.

Trucks have been carrying these concrete pipes along Ky. 18 and Camp Ernst Road. They line Sanitation District 1’s Western Regional Conveyance Tunnel, which will run underground from approximately the Camp Ernst entrance to Ky. 20.

Motorists driving along Ky. 18 or Camp Ernst Road may notice some unusual traffic. Trucks carrying large cement tubes can be seen frequently traversing these Boone County roads. Those tubes are actually concrete pipes that make up the interior lining of the Western Regional Conveyance Tunnel, said Chris Novak, deputy executive director of operations for Sanitation District 1. The tunnel will run from Camp Ernst Road to Ky. 20, approximately a mile from that road’s intersection with Ky. 18, Novak said. Between 45 and 50 trucks are heading to the Camp Ernst site daily, he said. According to information on SD1’s website, the $110 million project is the largest capital project in SD1 history. Construction began in June 2009. The gravity sewer project will

route flow to the new 2 million gallon per day Western Regional Water Reclamation Facility. When fully operational, the tunnel project will divert flows off of SD1’s existing collection system and reduce sanitary sewer overflows, which typically occur during heavy rainfalls, by 60 million gallons and replace at least 10 pump stations, the website reads. The project includes installing nearly 7 miles of 8.5-feet diameter pipe. Crews are about 85 percent complete with the overall project, Novak said. The tunneling itself was completed in October and crews will place the last of the pipes within the coming weeks before beginning work on five individual shaft sites along the tunnel. Shaft 1, at the Camp Ernst entrance, is where the gravity sewers will connect to the tunnel, Novak said. The project should be finished by March 2012, Novak said.

Methodists forming ‘community of faith’ By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

The Community United Methodist Church is unlike many of its traditional counterparts. “My goal is to start a new community of faith in Boone County,” said Matt Johnson, who moved to Boone County last year. According to their website, they meet in homes, in parks and throughout the Hebron and Burlington area. Johnson, 29 and originally from Pennsylvania, is an ordained United Methodist pastor and church planter. He moved to Kentucky in 2005 for graduate school – he attended Asbury Theological Seminary near Lexington – and moved here in July. “My bishop sent me here,” Johnson said. “We saw the growth and the things that are happening here. It seemed like a place that was right for a new church.” The Community UMC is trying

to foster a sense of community, whether that’s playing bar trivia on Monday nights, organizing a group outing to a hockey game or planning small group gatherings at local establishments. That also includes engaging local communities in unique ways. Around Christmas, Johnson said the group took cookies to employees of various businesses and last month they went around to laundromats with rolls of quarters and paid for people’s laundry. “We’re not trying to get anything out of that,” he said. “We want to let people know we care for them and someone out there thinks they matter.” The church also offers people a place to belong. “As I talk to young adults and young people, the thing I hear over and over again is, ‘I feel isolated,’” Johnson said. “… we’re trying to create a place where peo-

Hodson heads Boone Relay for Life By Stephanie Salmons It just made sense for Marlena Hodson of Union to participate in Relay for Life. She lost a grandfather to cancer and her sister battled the disease twice. “The more you get involved, the more you realize you really hate cancer,” she said. “I mean it sounds cliche, but I actually hate cancer. Every time I hear a story about somebody having cancer or dying from cancer, I’m like ‘I hate cancer,

for its own Hodson fundraising efforts. Last year between 30 and 40 teams participated, Hodson said. This year, the goal is to have at least 42 teams and raise about $95,000 for the ACS, she said. The night kicks off with a survivor lap and will be followed by a reception for cancer survivors. Last year nearly 60 survivors participated. This year, Hodson said she would like to double that number. Survivors and those interested in participating can do so online at www.relayfor life.org/booneky or by calling Hodson at 859-250-0027. Relay for Life offers a family-friendly atmosphere, with something for everyone, Hodson said. “It’s a great cause. It really is,” she said.

why can’t we get rid of this?’” Hodson, this year’s Boone County Relay for Life event chair, has been participating in the event for six years. This is her second year as the chairwoman. Relay for Life is an annual event that aims to celebrate cancer survivors and raise money for cancer research and the American Cancer Society, according to the ACS website. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Boone County’s Relay for Life celebration begins at 7 p.m. Friday, June 17, and will end at 7 a.m. Saturday, June 18. It will take place on the track of Cooper High School. Each team is responsible

Lalley, Boone animal advocate, dies By Nancy Daly ndaly@nky.com

Carolyn Lalley, 76, a longtime supporter of the Boone County Animal Shelter, died Friday, March 11, after an eight-month battle with renal cancer. The Florence resident was treasurer of Friends of the Shelter, a group that raises funds for the animal shelter and provides spay and neuter services for about 1,000 pets a year. Lalley was also a member of the animal shelter’s board. “Without her support we would not be where we are today,” said Beckey Reiter, Boone County’s Animal Care and Control director. The last two years the animal shelter introduced a mobile pet adoption van – called the Adoption Waggin’ – and announced kennel improvements and medical facility expansion. “We wouldn’t have this adoption unit, we wouldn’t have the advancement in our medical program that we have. (Friends of the Shelter) gave us the equipment that we needed to expand. The county simply

didn’t have the funds,” Reiter said. “ O u r Boone County Animal S h e l t e r would not be Lalley what it is today without Carolyn,” said Boone County Judgeexecutive Gary Moore. “She has been an advocate for the shelter as a volunteer, as a recruiter, and as a fundraiser. She will be greatly missed.” Lalley was volunteer coordinator for the shelter and worked her own shift every Friday. Volunteers put in 3,000 hours a year, Reiter said. “She would hold dogs if they needed their nails trimmed, she would bathe them, whatever needed to be done” including scooping the kennels, Reiter said. Lalley was a Grant County native who taught in Cincinnati Public Schools for 35 years. She and her husband, Edward, who died in 2003, moved to Boone County in 1965, said her sister, Bonnie Ravenscraft. Ravenscraft, 73, who serves as Friends of the

Shelter president, said, “I don’t now how we’re going to continue to do everything without her.” This year’s PetFest, the group’s biggest fundraiser in June, is now “up in the air,” Ravenscraft said. “We certainly can never replace her and her dedication to animal issues, particularly affordable spay/neuter services. It will take 10 people to do what she did for Friends of the Shelter,” said Jan Chapman of Florence, a Friends of the Shelter volunteer and member of the shelter’s advisory board. Ravenscraft hoped volunteers would step forward to fill the gap left after Lalley’s death. “We need some more big-hearted people that’s got a lot of time.” Ravenscraft said her sister was a dog lover, often having three at a time. “Most of the time she would take older dogs.” Lalley loved the Cincinnati Pops and Cincinnati Ballet, her sister said. Memorials are suggested to Friends of the Shelter, P.O. Box 93, Union, KY 41091.

Burlington. The next is planned the Saturday before Easter. He comes with “big questions” of faith and life, so this church is trying to provide a place to find those answers. Church should be a place where people can ask questions, Johnson said. When he was approached with the idea, Johnson said he realized a lot of people were disconnected from the church, lacking a place to fit within the traditional confines. “We want to be a church that’s a movement and not an institution. We don’t want to get stuck on the ways we’ve always done things or in the way we have to do things, but instead we want to be open to what’s new and what’s next and what’s happening,” he said. “So how we do that, we’re not sure yet. It’s kind of a scary thing because I don’t know what that looks like.” Those interested in more information can contact Johnson at matt@thecommunityky.org or visit www. thecommunityky.org.

Highway named after Cauthen By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

A portion of Ky. 14 will be renamed Steve Cauthen Highway, in honor of Kentucky native and Triple Crown winning jockey Steve Cauthen. House Joint Resolution 71, sponsored by Rep. Addia Wuchner, of Florence, passed last week. It was incorporated into HJR 19, the highway naming bill. Wuchner’s resolution directs the Department of Transportation to designate Ky. 14 between Interstate 71 and Interstate 75 in Boone County to be named “Steve Cauthen Highway.” “I was first approached by Patty Montoya, wife of former Bengals player Max Montoya, about naming a road after Steve Cauthen,” Wuchner said. “Patty reminded me of the impact

Cauthen

that Steve’s accomplishments have had on Kentucky’s sign a t u r e industry and the commonwealth

as a whole.” Wuchner said she was pleased to sponsor the legislation as a way to acknowledge Cauthen. “Steve is such a soft-spoken gentleman and a dedicated father, who has accomplished a feat that has not been repeated in over 30 years,” she said. In a telephone interview Monday morning, Cauthen said he appreciates the recognition. “It’s just nice to realize people appreciate what I did,” he said. Cauthen, a native of Northern Kentucky, is the

youngest jockey to win the Triple Crown, which he did in 1978. He also won several awards, including Sports Illustrated Magazine’s Sportsman of the Year, Sporting News Magazine’s Sportsman of the Year, Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year, and ABC’s Wide World of Sports Athlete of the Year, as well as the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Apprentice Jockey and the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Jockey in the United States – all won in 1977. Cauthen was inducted in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1994. He currently resides in Verona where he operates Dreamfields, a breeding farm and training center.

County tables goals, objectives By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

Boone County leaders have delayed action on adopting the updated “goals and objectives” document of the Boone County Comprehensive Plan. The matter was tabled during the March 7 meeting of the Boone County Fiscal Court after listening to concerns from audience members. Officials will revisit the issue at the March 22 meeting. State statute requires a review of the county’s comprehensive plan every five years. The original plan was adopted in 1980 and the last update was completed in 2005. Municipalities must adopt the goals and objectives by ordinance before planners can begin reviewing chapters of the plan. The comprehensive plan is a “long-range overview plan for the whole county,” said planner Bob Jonas of the Boone County Planning Commission, who’s in charge of the update. This update is looking 25 years into the future, he said. Several audience members spoke out about con-

The charity with the most chips at the end of the night gets first choice on a horse in the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes, Turfway’s Kentucky Derby prep race, the following week. If that horse wins, the charity gets $10,000. The charity with the second-place horse gets $6,000 and the remaining charities get $4,000. Tickets are available from any of the eight charities, by calling 859-578-8800 or online at www.nkychamber.com.

cerns with the proposed document during the meeting, but Jonas said in a phone interview much of what was brought up before commissioners had been heard by the Planning Commission committee that recommended changes to the goals and objectives. Brian Miller, executive vice president of the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky, said the organization has worked with the Planning Commission and its staff throughout the process. Goals and objectives address social, historical and cultural issues as well as the impacts of the fiscal economy of the county, he said. Why shouldn’t it then address the health and growth of private citizens and industries “and their economic health and wellbeing going into the future,” Miller said. At this point, the HBA is “not comfortable with what we have here,” he said. Florence resident Bob Cicero and his wife, Eugenia, both spoke to commissioners. “I’m a little concerned with the fact that it looks like a very far-reaching into

all aspects of life,” Bob Cicero said. “It’s almost like a bureaucrat’s utopia – ‘we’re going to do this, this and this’ – almost far-reaching beyond what I think is just a comprehensive document for the planning commission.” Eugenia Cicero highlighted several areas of the document that concerned her. According to her, a number of the items in the goals and objectives document sound “very similar” to portions of the greenways plan that was defeated in 2009. “My major concern is the greenways plan which has been defeated by the voting members of the planning commission will now be implemented into reality by many of these changes,” she said. According to Planning Commission Director Kevin Costello, any reference to the greenways plan is out. “We’re not interested in that,” he said. Commissioner Charlie Kenner made the motion to table the item, to “work on the wordsmithing” a little longer. The same night, the city of Union adopted the document with no changes.

Museum pays tribute to Knothole By Jason Brubaker jbrubaker@nky.com

From the glow of the sun to the crack of the bat to the roars of the crowd – there’s nothing quite like a day at the ball park. That’s why the Behringer-Crawford Museum is partnering with the Northern Kentucky Sports Hall of Fame to launch a special exhibit dubbed “Play Ball: In a League of Our Own – The History of Knothole Baseball.” The exhibit will open Saturday, March 19, and run through June 5. “It’s a great way to not only preserve the past, but to provide inspiration for the future,” said Sarah Siegrist, assistant director of BCM. “So many people have been associated with Knothole over the years, and we figured it would be neat to show that tradition and how

it all started.” Joe Brennan, president of the Northern Kentucky Hall of Fame, said work putting together the exhibit has taken more than a year. They’ve been researching the history of Knothole baseball in each county, contacting former coaches and supervisors, and even trying to track down former players. He said they’ve worked with museum for several past exhibits, including displays on the top Northern Kentucky athletes to make it big, as well as the top coaches in Northern Kentucky high school history. “We have a really good time working with the museum and putting these together,” said Brennan. Brennan admitted the research for the Knothole exhibit was a challenge, as historical records were almost nonexistent for some

districts. However, he said they’ve been able to unearth some of the origins of of Knothole in each county, having discovered that Knothole play began in Campbell County in 1933, in Kenton County in 1939, and not until 1958 in Boone County. “If you think about it, a lot of the neighborhoods weren’t really built out in Boone County until later, so it makes sense,” he said. Brennan said they’ve also been able to feature some Knothole contributors who weren’t players or coaches, such as Fran Leubbers and Mary Justice, who helped run the books for Kenton County Knothole while their husbands were supervisors, and Betty Duncan, who helped with the purchase of the fields in Boone County by selling snacks out of the back of her station wagon. “That’s actually one of the coolest stories – she helped to raise enough money to help secure the loan for those fields they still play on in District 24,” said Siegrist. “It’s stories like those that we really want to share with everyone.” Of course, Siegrist and

Brennan said there will also be plenty of information on players, coaches and supervisors. Major-leaguers like Stan Arnzen, Leo Foster and Jim Bunning will be featured, as will all of the district supervisors, including Bob Marsh, father of former MLB umpire Randy Marsh, who oversaw the Kenton Knothole program in the late 1950s and early ‘60s. The Telecommunications Board of Northern Kentucky has also filmed several interviews with former players and coaches, which will air in the exhibit and later be available for purchase on DVD. Siegrist said the museum is planning to have “Knothole Days” each Saturday while the exhibit runs, where kids currently playing Knothole can visit the exhibit for free. Brennan said the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and the Kid Glove Program have stepped up to help sponsor the exhibit, which will also feature a special tribute to the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund which has contiributed funds for field maintenance and upgrades over the years.

He also encouraged those in attendance to keep an eye on talks concerning 911 dispatch consolidation. “I know there are a lot of people that think it’s a good idea, but – this is just me, I don’t speak for anyone else – I’m very much against this,” he said. “I feel like we’ve had a good taste of when you regionalize a service, what happens is you have cost go up, (and) you have accountability go

down.” If there’s one thing to keep on a local level, with local control, it’s the 911 emergency services, he said during the meeting at the Union Commmunity Building. Schickel, a retired police officer, said that 911 systems have become a system to gather information on citizens. He’s seen an emphasis go from dispatching, “which is very important, getting citizens help when they need help,” to gathering information on individuals. “I think this is something that we really need to, before you all as an individual decide to support it or oppose it, to really think it through because I think it’s fraught with peril.” For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/boonecounty.

Boone scores high on ACT prep tests By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Boone County Schools is celebrating its success on ACT preparation exams. Across the district, eighthgraders took the EXPLORE test and sophomores took the PLAN test. The results left them scoring highly across the region and state. Boone County pulled in the following ranks:

• Seventh of 175 state districts on the PLAN • Fourteenth of 175 state districts on EXPLORE • First among the state’s large, diverse districts • Third in Northern Kentucky on both exams District Assessment Coordinator Alissa Ayers points out that Boone County is behind only Beechwood and Fort Thomas Independent Schools which had

between 80 and 110 students taking each exam while Boone County would have 1,100 students taking them. The results showed that Boone County is performing above the national averages on the exams, Ayers said. While comparisons are nice, Boone County doesn’t intend to just focus on doing better than others, she said. “Our goal is that every child in

the district is college and career ready,” Ayers said. This means the district is setting its goals higher than what the state is expecting because they want every student to leave high school with an ACT score that will get them into Kentucky’s top state schools, she said. This means the district still has a long way to go, but it is time to take a moment to enjoy the progress, said Board of Education

Chairman Steve Kinman. “We have not arrived – we’re not even close to arriving. We have a lot of work to do, but let’s celebrate the success we’ve had,” Kinman said. While comparing to other districts isn’t the final goal, Kinman threw out a warning. “Look out Beechwood and Fort Thomas – here we come.” For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/boonecounty.

Thornwilde gets $17 million bid By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Men at Mann play bingo with students The Men at Mann had their third annual bingo day at Mann Elementary on Jan. 29. It was a great time for kids to enjoy being with their dads, grandpas or uncles. More than 150 kids and their dads attended the event. Gift cards worth $5 from various local businesses were given to the bingo winners.

Boone County Schools has the builder for its 14th elementary school. The district sifted through eight bids to select Cincinnati-based Monarch Construction to build its new elementary school in the Thornwilde subdivision. Monarch’s $17 million was the best offer and is a reasonable price for the project, said Deputy Superintendent Mike Blevins. The bid is a departure from projects like Longbranch Elementary where bids came in signifi-

cantly lower than expected, said Superintendent Randy Poe. “You’re starting to see the construction industry bounce back,” Poe said. Blevins also cited rising fuel costs for part of the increase in bid prices. The Thornwilde school is expected to open for the 20122013 school year and hold about 750 students. The school will provide relief to North Pointe and Goodridge Elementary Schools. Construction will start in April. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/hebron.

“Tried and True” features nearly 400 recipes submitted by the students, faculty and staff of Conner High School.

Hundreds of community recipes have been gathered into one book. The Conner High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) compiled “Tried and True,” a cookbook of nearly 400 recipes collected from within the school. “These are recipes submitted by Conner students, faculty and staff,” said

Many of the recipes are for how to prepare game food like venison and fish that is popular in the area, but recipes aren’t common. Jenny Cox, FCCLA sponsor. The cookbook is part of a fundraiser for FCCLA so members can go to Colorado for a national FCCLA conference, Cox said.

“It’s hard to come up with that kind of money,” she said. Cox and FCCLA officers kicked around ideas for a fundraiser and the consensus was a cookbook, but the idea wasn’t initially received well, Cox said. “We were told it wouldn’t work,” she said. The group moved forward and asked for recipes from the school and they started pouring in. “You see a lot of different

Bearcats proud of season after Sweet 16 defeat By James Weber jweber@nky.com

The Walton-Verona High School girls basketball team had everything going against them as they approached their first-ever state tournament game. They were playing a Bowling Green High School team that was playing in its backyard, in an arena the players were well familiar with, and whose student body was more than twice as large. Despite those problems, the Bearcats stayed with the Purples for a half in their first-round game in the Sweet 16. But WaltonVerona ultimately fell 58-32 to Bowling Green March 9 at Western Kentucky University. A crowd of 6.858, the second-largest for a two-game session in the tourney’s history, watched the Purples advance to the quarterfinals. W-V finished with a 25-9 record in its first appearance ever in the state tourney. “I told them we want to move on and enjoy this experience down here the next couple of days,” said Walton-Verona head coach Cory Miller. “We’re going to celebrate this great season instead of dwelling on this one loss.” Miller knew the Purples would present a challenge with their balanced offense, which had four starters averaging 12 or more points per game. Three of those starters scored five points apiece to lead Bowling Green to a 158 advantage over the Bearcats after the first quarter. The Bearcats fought back to within four points at halftime, 25-21, as five different Bearcats scored baskets in the second period. Katie Slavey and Kara Taulbee hit three-pointers in the period. Kelli Dixon, Lizzie Hoffa and Courtney Sandlin had two-pointers. The Bearcats felt confident at the half trailing by four. They had turned the ball over 14 times, including several after defensive

rebounds when they tried an outlet pass. “It’s really tough. It’s a lot harder than it looks like,” sophomore Sandlin said. “It was really tough to get by them. We did the best we could.” Said Miller: “It’s the first time all year we’ve faced a team that presses off of misses. There aren’t many high school teams out there who will do that. We knew that going in. When you have that size and athleticism double-teaming one of our small guards off a rebound, it’s tough.” On the plus side, Walton shot 9-of-18 in the half and out-rebounded BG, 19-10. But the third quarter became disastrous for the Bearcats. BG scored on its first two possessions, and received four straight points from its fifth starter, Kendra Barnett, who averages 2.5 points a game. After that, BG made four of its next six shots, all jumpers, including a pair of three-pointers. Meanwhile, Walton would only make one of its 13 shots in the third quarter. When the period ended, BG led 41-23 after a 12-0 run. “It gave us a lot of confidence going into the locker room only being down four,” senior forward Dixon said. “It helped us settle down against a good athletic team that we might be able to do it. But we fell short.” Taulbee made three three-pointers in the fourth period for the Bearcats’ lone points, as they shot just 4of-26 in the second half. She led W-V with 12 points. “I thought we had some good looks,” Miller said. “I knew it was going to take a monumental shooting effort out of us. We’re capable of lighting it up, but we didn’t shoot it well during the third quarter, and they did.” Sandlin had seven points, Dixon six, Slavey three, Jenalee Ginn two and Michele Judy two. Sandlin led with eight rebounds and Molly Clinkenbeard had four assists. Alexis Lawrence led the Purples

Season statistics Season statistics, not counting Sweet 16 game: Scoring: Kelli Dixon 14.8, Courtney Sandlin 9.8, Kara Taulbee 9.2, Katie Slavey 5.9, Michele Judy 4.6, Jenalee Ginn 3.7, Molly Clinkenbeard 3.5. Three-pointers: Taulbee 71, with 23 points. They had three players in double figures, and the Purples were 7-of-16 from three-point range. “Their game in the regional semifinals, two of their leading scorers were shut out,” Miller said. “I knew that wouldn’t happen again, but I hoped they would have an off night shooting from the perimeter.” The Bearcats had a size advantage inside, as the Purples had no one who could match up with their three post players, Dixon, Sandlin and Judy. But BG’s full-court pressure won the day, preventing the Bearcats from taking advantage of their halfcourt strengths. “They certainly didn’t want to get into a half-court game with us,” Miller said.

Slavey 50, Clinkenbeard 16, Ginn 16, Dixon 9, Sandlin 8. Assists: Taulbee 74, Ginn 61, Hoffa 58, Clinkenbeard 54, Slavey 52. Steals: Taulbee 53, Dixon 39, Sandlin 37, Ginn 37. Blocks: Judy 21. “Their pressure took our bigs out of the game a little bit, compared to when we can walk down the floor, run our sets and pound it in like we like to do.” The Bearcats had lost in the All “A” state tournament by one after losing a large lead in the fourth quarter. It wasn’t easier to lose by 26, but the Bearcats plan to regroup and get ready for next year. “It’s tough to lose anytime,” Miller said. “To have the season come to an end, knowing you’re losing a very special player in Kelli Dixon, maybe the winningest girls basketball player in the history of Walton-Verona. We knew it was going to be sad whenever it happened.” See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/ blogs/presspreps.

Kelli Dixon will leave the Walton-Verona girls basketball program as one of its leading scorers. The senior forward, a starter since her freshman year, had more than 1,600 career points, and those were just the start of her important career statistics. “The way you measure how good a player really is by how victories they have in their career,” Walton-Verona head coach Cory Miller said. “Kelli is probably the winningest girls basketball player in Walton-Verona history. In her career, she won 80 games, two district championships, back to back 25-win seasons, and the school’s first-ever regional championship. That will be tough for any player in the future to surpass.” Dixon averaged 14.8 points a game this year, shooting 52 percent from the floor. She led the team to the All “A” Eighth Region title the last two years, and was tournament MVP this season in the postseason Eighth Region Tournament. “She was asked to carry more of a leadership role with these younger girls, and she did,” Miller said. “But beyond her leadership, her passion offensively and defensively is what makes her a great basketball player.” Dixon is the lone senior on the team, as the returners will look to build on their experience this year. “It will take some time to overcome (the loss), but we return four starters and everybody else off the bench,” Miller said. “We’re excited. We know the future is bright. But our focus is on this year.” The team appreciated the support they got from the community, including hundreds of students and other fans with blue school Tshirts commemorating the Eighth Region title. “We had most of the community here today,” Miller said. “It was very special. We know we want to be back down here. This is a special place. The Sweet 16 is every girl’s and boy’s dream. We’re going to work extremely hard over the spring and summer to get back here next year.” All 13 Bearcats on the roster got to play in the Sweet 16 game. That included starters Dixon, Sandlin, Clinkenbeard, Ginn and Taulbee; regular substitutes Slavey, Lizzie Hoffa, Judy and Shelby Mullikin; and sophomores Kasey Troxel, Hannah Sullivan, Liz McAdams and Heidi Zwick.

St. Henry 2nd in indoor track By James Weber jweber@nky.com

St. Henry finished second in the girls Class 1A track and field meet at the indoor Mason-Dixon Games March 5 in Maysville. The meet is the state championship for indoor track, though not an official championship recognized by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. An indoor meet has most of the same meets as an outdoor meet, with some different distances involved. Lindsey Hinken won both the 1,500 and 3,000 meters for St. Henry, part of nine top-eight scoring finishes for the Crusaders. The St. Henry boys team won nine medals, with Shaun Cawley medalling in three field events. Outdoor season begins for many local teams March

18 at the Boone County Relays. Also in Class 1A, the Walton-Verona girls team won eight medals and the boys team three. Boone County led 3A teams with seven medals in girls.

State bowling exciting for Boone schools By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Gwyn Dicken led Conner High School to the state championship in boys bowling three years ago. The head coach is now leading Cooper, and she hopes for a strong performance from the Jaguars in the state tournament March 19 at Eastland Lanes in Lexington. Sixteen boys teams and 16 girls teams will compete in a match-play tournament, and then a singles championship will be decided the next day, March 20. Bowling is not sanctioned by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association but will be beginning next school year. KHSAA Assistant Commissioner Angela Passafiume, who oversees bowling, came to the regional tournament to observe how the tourney worked. Since day one more than five years ago, the state tournament has been hotly contested no matter what its status was. “I have been to state several times over the years, and it is a whole different atmosphere there and

Highland Heights to county rival Walton-Verona. The format was best-offive Baker games, in which five bowlers alternate frames within one 10-frame game. Cooper lost 3-2 to Walton-Verona who was regional runner-up. The Bearcats also advance to the state tournament. “Walton bowled well and took the match,” Dicken said. “We still had a great day and the boys did an outstanding job. This was the most excited I have seen them and the parents all year.” Cooper was 62-22 this year to win District 1. The Jaguars have three bowlers at 178 average and up, counting Zac Dicken (187), Jacob Uhlyarik (181) and Justin Spencer (178). After a rough seeding game to begin the regional, Cooper was seeded seventh and then ousted Boone County to avenge a defeat in the same round in 2010. “We have a great group of boys, and they will listen to anything we ask them to do,” coach Dicken said. “They have really jelled as a team and encourage each other. They are supported by great parents as well.

You would not really know who is a junior or an eighthgrader by how they get along." Boone County was 6024, second in District 1 for the season. Boone lost in the regional quarterfinals to end its season. Brad Hightchew was the top Rebel for the year at 192, followed by Trevor Hudson (184) and Cory Black (183). Hightchew won the singles championship at the regional tournament, contested Feb. 27. Hightchew shot 874 for four games, a 218.5 average. Cooper’s Dicken was second with 848. Walton won District 4 this year with a 49.5-34.5 record. At regionals, the Bearcats were behind the 8ball with six bowlers in the tourney, the minimum required to compete. Walton scored 197 and 203 in its last two games to beat Cooper, then won the first game against Campbell in the finals, 196-180. After struggling with 142 and 127 the next two games in defeats, Walton rallied for a 213 in the fourth game to extend the match. Campbell won the finale, 194-157. Spencer Caudle anchored for the Bearcats and had several clutch strikes in the tournament, including three in the 10th in the 213. In girls, Conner qualified for state after losing in the finals to Campbell County, who had an 82-2 record for the season. Campbell won 3-0 in the finals. The Cougars had a 5925 record for the season and won District 1. Conner was the fourth seed in the regional and beat Dayton and Notre Dame to advance. Alli Haggard and Allison McGlasson qualified for state in singles from the separate tournament Feb. 27. Boone County’s girls team will also bowl at state as a team after beating Dayton in a rolloff match following a loss in the regional quarterfinals. Shannon Ramey qualified in singles.

TMC ends NCAA run against familiar foe By James Weber jweber@nky.com

When Washington University in Saint Louis came to Thomas More College for the NCAA Division III women’s basketball playoffs March 11, four of its starters were different from the team that eliminated the Saints on their way to the 2010 national championship. But several players who were key parts of that game stepped up again last week to end TMC’s season again, as Washington beat the Saints 72-53 at the Connor Convocation Center in Crestview Hills. It was a rematch of an 80-64

Thomas More loss last year in the second round, also at Thomas More. “This is clearly not the way we hoped this would come to an end,” TMC head coach Brian Neal said. “The girls are pretty upset. I didn’t want them to focus on this last result because we’ve had such a great year.” TMC, the No. 1 team in the national polls, ended the season 30-1. Washington beat Chicago the next night at TMC to advance to this weekend’s Final Four in Bloomington, Ill. TMC led 22-15 when Brianne Monahan hit a three-pointer off the bench.

After TMC guard Devin Beasley hit a trey, Washington junior Claire Schaeperkoetter scored eight points in 59 seconds, draining two three-pointers and a long two-pointer. That gave Washington a quick 26-25 lead. Schaeperkoetter scored 11 points in just eight minutes of play. She scored seven points in 11 minutes in last year’s win. Brianne Monahan hit a key three-pointer, and Washington led 28-27 at the half. “We lost a couple of shooters, and they’re wide open,” Neal said. “But I felt OK at halftime. We figured we had to make a couple of adjustments and they adjusted better than we did.” The Bears started the second half with a 16-7 run to lead by 10 points with 13 minutes to play. TMC scored the next five points to pull within five, but then missed its next four shots and Washington pulled away. Ultimately, the Bears were bullish on the boards, out-rebounding the Saints 50-26, just one rebound more than last year’s margin (49-26).

Thomas More guard Allison Long drives to the basket March 11. “This is upper-crust of Division III. You don’t see too many teams like that,” Neal said. “Offensive rebounding is the big strength of their team. Defensively, that’s normally the strength of our team.” Starting center Kathryn Berger had 11 points and 13 rebounds for Washington. She had 25 and 11 off the bench last year. The lone starter who was the same from 2010, guard Alex Hoover, had 10 points and four assists last week after getting 16 and nine last year.

Thomas More was led by Allison Long (Conner) with 14 points, including 3-of-4 shooting from three-point range. Amy Stultz had 12 points. Senior center Nicole Dickman had five points and seven rebounds but did not score until the second half as bigger Bear defenders double-teamed her all night. “They were doubling me on everything, but I’m used

We started going to me in the second half more, and I took it to them because I didn’t want to end my career.” Stultz, a starting guard, and reserve forward Dana Bors are other seniors. Neal had to convince Dickman to continue her basketball career in college after she finished her standout career at Notre Dame Academy. “It’s been a great experience,” Dickman said. “I’m glad I made the decision to play my freshman year and stay with it.

Already we hear a production room at Thomas More College has been named “Ted Bushelman Studio.” But in Florence or Boone County, what would be an appropriate way to honor the leader, community volunteer and friend to many? One possibility we’ve considered is the future South Airfield Road. The county is preparing to put the project out for bid. The new road will run from Ky. 18 across from Oakbrook and across Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport property to Turfway Road, officials say. A connector road will be built to Houston Road, across from Wood-

How Frankfort thinks; the devil is in the details Greetings from Frankfort! The gavel has fallen on 2011 session of the General Assembly, but as this article goes to print the governor has already issued the “call” for a Special Session. We returned to Frankfort on Monday. Hanging in the balance is the issue of a shortfall in Kentucky’s Medicaid budget. The governor placed two items on the Special Session call: Medicaid and proposed legislation to increase the high school dropout age to 18. In this article, I’ll focus on the current Medicaid situation that brought the General Assembly to a screeching halt last week. In January, we arrived in Frankfort facing a projected $166 million Medicaid deficit. House Bill 305, known as “the fix for the shortfall” reflected the governor’s proposal of opening up the 2012 budget and borrowing $166 million. That’s like robbing Peter to pay Paul. Borrowing funds, shifting debt responsibilities, and restructuring debt is a practice that is akin to paying off the interest on one credit card with another credit card, and praying your ship will come in to save the day! I was one of 19 House members who wanted to explore all options. The current budget was based on estimated revenue increase of 4.2 percent. Most recent revenue reports indicate revenues to be up approximately 5.5 percent. We argued that we

should consider utilizing the current revenues to support the Medicaid shortfall, continue to work aggressively on Medicaid efficiencies State Rep. and limit the Addia amount of Wuchner money needed to move the Community 2012 budget. Recorder Additionally, guest sound business columnist models in managed care and private insurance should be applied to Medicaid. Efficiencies in the area of disease management, pharmacy, radiology and ER utilization demonstrate not only financial savings but improved patient outcomes. (Under the Fletcher administration, these mentioned efficiencies had been extensively researched and were moving toward implementation. Unfortunately, the follow-through did not occur with the change of administration.) The Senate revised HB 305. Rather than borrow from the 2012 Medicaid budget, the revised bill directed the governor’s administration, i.e. the Health and Family Services Cabinet, to find and implement Medicaid efficiencies and make incremental across-theboard cuts to state agencies and

departments (0.525 percent in the first year and 2.26 percent in the second year of the budget). Education would be spared the first year but it would share the cuts in 2012. The House rejected the revised bill. Last week, lawmakers with increasing concerns over cutting education and competing proposals on how to balance Medicaid debated on a compromise. Normally, this long “conference compromise process” eventually moves us to a final agreement – a process that is never pretty and not for the faint of heart. Eventually, the Senate did back off their proposed 2.26 percent secondyear cuts; reducing them to 1.8 percent, but the proposed program cuts continued to be the impasse. Addressing the Medicaid shortfall is a complicated and complex dilemma. Folks, the devil is always in the details, and you have to understand what I call “Frankfort Thinking.” I guess this is what my husband meant when I was first elected and he warned me, “Don’t go to Frankfort and get your brains sucked out.” Engrained Frankfort Thinking … “Don’t leave any money on the table.” Meaning, Washington is handing out money and programs – make sure Kentucky gets her share. The problem is, like many states, Kentucky has an addiction to federal dollars that typically come with strings attached. We

can no longer afford our dependence on D.C. dollars or Washington’s overreach. Understanding our current Medicaid situation … in past years Kentucky’s F-Match or federal match was 30/70, meaning that for every 30 cents Kentucky spends on Medicaid services, the federal government would give us an additional 70 cents. The Obama administration increased that match to 20/80, meaning that for every 20 cents Kentucky spends on Medicaid the federal government will send us 80 cents. The opportunity to get the 20/80 match expires in June. That is the reason some in Frankfort want to move money from the 2012 budget to the current year. Thus the Frankfort Think – place more money in this year’s budget to capture the 80 percent federal money match. As we are aware, the states are struggling and Washington is broken. D.C. is either printing money we do not have or borrowing it – everyday increasing our national debt. When the Kentucky General Assembly passed the current biannual budget … the governor was required to begin the process of implementing efficiency measures that would have saved over $110 million in Medicaid. Additionally, many in Frankfort thought there would be another federal stimulus that would arrive from Washing-

ton and once again save the day. Some funds did arrive from Washington, but as I understand it the Obama administration directed that $100 million of those funds go toward education. Meanwhile, Governor Beshear and the Health and Welfare Cabinet have not been able to apply many of the efficiency goals that were part of the budget agreement. With a struggling economy, Kentucky has an increased enrollment of over 800,000 who rely on Medicaid services. Federal prohibitions against reducing Medicaid eligibility places an everincreasing financial burden on our state that is competing with education funding. Difficult decisions impacting Medicaid, education funding, and other services now hang in the balance. As lawmakers, we are accountable to you, the people we serve, and entrusted to ensure your tax dollars are spent appropriately. We are constitutionally obligated to operate the commonwealth within a balanced budget. I remain hopeful; as it is essential that cooler minds prevail this week in Frankfort so that the House and the Senate can work to reach an agreement on Medicaid. Addia Wuchner, R-Florence, is a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives.

A community tribute to Ted Friends, colleagues reflect on

Bushelman’s ‘sparkle, zest for life’ T

FILE PHOTO

Ted Bushelman, retired director of communications at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport, died March 6 after an apparent heart attack.

he shock over the death of Florence City Councilman Ted Bushelman on March 6 was deep for many of his friends, family and colleagues. Bushelman had a large circle of friends. He was involved in so many community activities that there probably isn’t a complete list. To give a better sense of Bushelman’s influence in the community, the Recorder asked many who knew him to give a short tribute to the retired spokesman for Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and volunteer for countless community groups. Here are tributes to Bushelman from many of his friends and colleagues.

“Ted Bushelman was a most gracious, happy, giving man and a wonderful friend to Thomas More College. We will miss seeing him moving around the campus with a headset firmly placed as he coordinated the televising of our graduation, speakers series and athletic events. This image, forever etched in my mind, is complemented by the warmth in my heart as I recall Ted’s smile, his willingness to be of help, and his patience working with our student camera wo/men and play-by-play announcers. Ted, we grieve our loss of your person but count on your enduring presence with us.” Sister Margaret Stallmeyer, CDP Thomas More College “Ted was Mr. Northern Kentucky. He believed that being involved in your community is what made it a better, stronger place. Northern Kentucky is a better and stronger place because of Ted. His passing has left a void for all of us that knew and loved him, that won’t soon be filled.” Diane E. Whalen Florence mayor “The community has lost a beloved character. As the face and voice of CVG for 41 years, he was proud to be part of the team that brought the airport to international status. I so enjoyed being his assistant those last nine years. His love and support of all things Northern Kentucky is unparalleled. My heart goes out to Gloria, who has lost her best buddy, and to Ted’s family, and to all his friends in the community who will miss his larger-than-life presence. Rest in peace, my friend.” Pam Porter Administrative Assistant to Director of Communications/KCAB/CVG Theodore J. Bushelman “Ted Bushelman’s passing will be a great loss to the city of Florence and the entire Greater Cincinnati area. His involvement

Ted was a Chamber ‘living legend’ for years who continued to contribute his time and talents to our organization all the way until his death (March 6). No one could be missed more and our hearts our saddened. We send our prayers and wishes to his family. Ted’s many contributions will live on in Northern Kentucky.” Steve Stevens Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce president

His flair for marketing and public relations, his commitment to cable TV events both large and small or his simple acting as Santa, was typical Ted Bushelman. Never one for self praise, we all owe Ted a thank you and God bless.” Larry Brown Florence City Council “On behalf of Boone County Public Library, I would like to express condolences to the family of Ted Bushelman. We wouldn’t have a library if it wasn’t for Ted – he was an integral part of the group that campaigned to establish a library in Boone County. Ted served on the library’s Board of Trustees for 27 years and helped to foster the growth of the library from its first storefront location to the modern multi-branch library system that serves Boone County today. Ted will be sorely missed by all of us.” Greta Southard Boone County Library director

ERNEST COLEMAN/STAFF

Gloria Bushelman, right, wife of Ted Bushelman, gives a big hug to a visitor at the March 12 celebration of life for Bushelman, who died March 6. “Ted Bushelman has been a contributor to the Florence Freedom in countless ways over the past six seasons. The knowledge he brought was awesome, but his friendship is what we will remember most. You could always count on seeing him at the ballpark in a suit, never a tie but a handkerchief, no matter the temperature. When he finished his work, he would always have his token Bombay Sapphire Martini. We will miss him dearly.” Elizabeth Quatman Florence Freedom Professional Baseball “I could call on my good friend, Mr. Five Star Ted, to help me in many ways. He would come to

my rescue to emcee, judge, film an event, work the red carpet, provide gifts from the airport for Redwood School, to name only a few. I will miss hearing from him on a weekly basis. Ted was one in a million. His memories will last forever.” Brenda J. Sparks Florence event planner and publicist “Ted was a tireless worker for Boone County and Northern Kentucky. I don’t remember attending too many functions where he wasn’t the emcee. We were friends in grade school and rekindled it through the Jaycees and the Boone County Businessmen.” Dr. Jim Schrand Grade school friend

“What I will miss is Ted’s sparkle, sense of humor and zest for life. Ted enjoyed life and everyone he encountered. He had limitless enthusiasm and energy for projects and causes that benefited our community. Ted was also an encourager and mentor to many who needed his guidance and wisdom. No one will ever know the many lives he touched.” Pat Raverty Rabbit Hash “Ted Bushelman was both a great man and a great public servant. I’m not sure any one person ever served this community stronger than Ted. In giving his life in service to our community, he was always an ambassador for Northern Kentucky. It’s impossible to name all the organizations and causes he supported. His passing is a monumental void to fill. He was a very special person and we remember him and his family during these times.” Gary Moore Boone County judge-executive

See fantastical sculptures created out of canned and packaged foods in “CANstruction,” an exhibit through March 20 designed to call attention to the issue of hunger in Greater Cincinnati. Pictured, members of the BHDP Architects, and Messer Construction team, build their sculpture, a large baseball mitt and ball, their entry in “CANstruction,” at the Weston Art Gallery at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. The sculptures will also be on display at the Duke Energy Headquarters Building on Fourth Street, the Scripps Center on Walnut Street, the downtown branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, and the Contemporary Arts Center.

It takes an informed conscience to make the truest decisions Conscience is vaguely understood today. Many equate it with pragmatism, self-interest, or our strong feelings about something. To others it’s the “little voice within me,” or, “my parent tapes from long ago.” None of these are adequate. Conscience is the process humans go through in discerning right from wrong, good from evil. It enables us to make good moral choices in the many situations we face every day. It determines our integrity. The first step in conscience’s formation is called synderesis. It occurs when we’re still very young. We begin to realize that there is a good and evil in this world, and that good is to be done and evil avoided. Psychologist Jean Piaget calls this stage “moral realism.” The second step in conscience formation is the search for truth. Competing values whisper to us on every side. The complexity of life makes it very difficult at times to discern truth. If we are honest in our search for truth, we may turn to a variety of sources for guidance (but not slavish adherence): the scriptures, our church, the physical and human sciences, tradition, competent professional advice, etc. We think, pray, discuss

and gather information and insights. Our prejudices or partisanship can e a s i l y Father Lou delude us. Guntzelman T h e Perspectives third stage in forming our conscience is reaching our actual judgments and convictions we’re convinced are good and right. These judgments take place “in the individual’s most secret core and sanctuary where one is alone with God,” as the Church’s II Vatican Council puts it. In freedom we make our choices and are so judged by God. Forming and following my conscience does not mean doing what I feel like doing. It does mean that after doing the hard work of discerning what is right and wrong to the best of my ability, I reach a conviction and then follow it. Kenneth Overberg, S.J., writes of an informed conscience: “The human conscience is the individual’s Supreme Court; it’s judgment must be followed.” When Martin Luther reached this final point in his conscience’s deliberations he made his famous statement, “Here I stand, I

can do no other.” Joan of Arc chose fidelity to her conscience and paid the ultimate price by being burned at the stake. Thomas More was beheaded by his king for refusing to violate his conscience. It’s most important that our conscience be informed – i.e. a person has studied, reflected, questioned and sought help from moral and spiritual mentors if necessary. Here are some brief descriptions that have been used over the years to “put a handle” on the other types of consciences we can develop other than the desired informed conscience. Informed: shaped by solid and true education as mentioned above. Also by good moral examples, solid reflection, experience and prayer. Rigid: a conscience that only considers the letter of the law, justice without mercy, unbending righteousness, and a disallowance of our humanity, etc. Scrupulous: an unreasonable, obsessive need to “do things right.” A moral perfectionism which often leads to needless repetition, often combined with the fear or guilt that no matter how well we’ve discerned, we’ve missed something. Erroneous: arises from arrested cognitive develop-

ment, cult-like indoctrination, or a personal disinterest in a genuine search for truth that may cramp our style. In criminal history, Ma Barker taught her sons stealing was right, not wrong. Lax: laziness in knowing and performing good behavior or a coziness with evil. A purposeful “just don’t care” attitude toward moral

pay their dues. Now the rest of the homeowners have to make up for that loss – and have been hit with a 50 percent hike in their dues. “I think 50 percent is just absurd,” said Anderson “Who can afford a 50 percent increase, and given two weeks notice at that?” Under the condominium bylaws there is no cap to how high the fees can go. Anderson said she’s checked and found the state of Ohio has no cap either. But, she said, the bylaws state the fees should be kept to a reasonable amount – and she said what’s going on now is just not reasonable. Anderson got a petition signed by 90 homeowners asking for a decrease in the dues. “I’ve had a couple of them state to me they’re trying to decide how they’re going to get their meds and make these fees. They say they’ve contacted the association and were told that’s

just how it is,” she said. The condo community’s board of directors, made up of homeowners themselves, said a decrease in dues is just not possible. Anderson said the value of her condo has dropped – but what’s happening here is not unique. One local expert said he’s seeing high delinquencies in communities with condos ranging in price from $50,000 to $100,000. It all has to do with the economy. When the economy improves so, too, should the ability of owners to pay the condo fees. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

With foreclosure rates up, so are condo fees The nation’s housing crisis has not only led to a dramatic drop in home prices, it’s also dealt a blow to a segment of the condominium industry. When a house is foreclosed upon and taken over by a bank, it often sits empty for months before selling for a fraction of its former value. When a condo is taken over by a bank, it not only brings down nearby condo prices, it can adversely affect the entire condominium community. Condominium association fees have skyrocketed to record levels in the past two years. There are two reasons for this. First, many condos have been foreclosed upon leaving them vacant, and second many condo owners are not able to pay the condo fees. Jane Anderson owns one of the 229 homes in the Rolling Meadows Community in Fairfield. She said the homeowners association relies on the monthly dues for the upkeep of the common areas. “If we have 229 units that doesn’t mean 229 owners are actually paying those dues,” said Anderson. “So it’s going to fall on the rest of us that are here (to make up for the deficit).” Last year the condo

Go green for St. Patricks’s day and for your health More signs of spring! The maple trees are budding out and my friends, Laura and Oakley Noe, have been tapping their sugar maples for syrup. The dill and cilantro seeds planted last fall look like slender green hairs in the herb garden. Soon we’ll be eating healthy right from our back door. March is nutrition month, and the first recipe uses quinoa, a whole grain, gluten free, loaded with nutrients and fiber. I think you’ll really like it. And for that St. Patrick’s Day celebration, try my newest version of easy soda bread. Also, guru in our backyard Debbie Goulding shares her quinoa salad with lemon dressing recipe.

Debbie’s quinoa salad

I have had the pleasure of knowing Debbie for several years. She is president of the American Culinary Federation of Greater Cincinnati, a distinctive honor. Debbie is the popular executive chef at Price Hill

She and I worked together on an “eat healthy” event and I asked her to make a whole-grain salad with quinoa since I wanted to introduce the participants to this healthy grain. The dressing is delicious on all sorts of salads and grains. If you’re a Price Hill Kroger shopper, ask Deb to put this on her menu again.

Debbie Goulding will head up the 35th anniversary celebration, Les Chefs DeCuisine of Greater Cincinnati Scholarship Dinner Fund, for the American Culinary Federation of Greater Cincinnati Sunday, March 27, at The Phoenix.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes. Meanwhile, make Moroccan-spiced lemon dressing. Transfer the quinoa to a medium bowl and toss with 1 ⁄3 cup of the dressing. Let cool for 10 minutes. Just before serving, add tomatoes and onion to the quinoa; toss to coat. Toss spinach with the remaining 1⁄3 cup dressing in a large bowl. Divide the spinach among four plates. Mound the quinoa salad on the spinach and sprinkle with almonds. Note: Quinoa is available in natural foods sec-

Toast quinoa in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until it becomes aromatic and begins to crackle, about five minutes. Transfer to a fine sieve and rinse thoroughly. Even if you don’t toast it, quinoa has to be washed very well to remove a natural, bitter coating, unless you purchase a pre-washed brand of quinoa. That information will be listed on the package. Quinoa is pronounced either “keenwah” or “kee-NOwah.” Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about one minute. Add apricots and the quinoa; continue cooking, stirring often, until the quinoa has dried out and

When good plants turn bad Question: What are some of the plants now causing problems as they take over the woods in this area? I have heard that bush honeysuckle is a bad one. I understand that some of these are definite weeds, while others were at one time intentionally planted and considered good here, but now are considered as bad … those that have been introduced into our landscapes and woods. Answer : Some of the worst in this area are indeed the bush or Amur Honeysuckle you mention, plus the Japanese Honeysuckle vine, Garlic Mustard, Multiflora Rose and several others that have become troublesome in woods, fields, pastures, gardens and even landscapes. Most of us have heard the phrase “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” You can apply this adage to your landscape just as easily as you can apply it to your attic. It may surprise you to learn some flowers and landscape plants you find attractive are actually weeds that can have a negative economic impact on the environment. Plant species are considered weeds when they interfere with human activities or welfare. Some plants are known to be potentially poisonous to animals. Others cause skin irritations or allergic reactions in people. A plant desirable to one individual can be a menace to another. A good example of this is annual morning glory. You

can find morning glory in catalogs and in some nurseries as a landscape plant. For a Mike Klahr grain crop Horticulture farmer, this Concerns f l o w e r i n g vine can cause significant losses in crop-yield potential. Many plants classified as weeds are not native to the United States. Most have been introduced through travel and trading in commerce with other parts of the world. Here are a few weeds to watch out for when you plan your landscape project. Musk thistle : Also known as Nodding thistle. This native of Europe and Asia was first discovered in the Mammoth Cave area in the 1940s. Farmers, landowners and roadside maintenance crews spend a significant amount of time and money to combat its growth and spread. Johnsongrass was introduced in the 1800s as a forage crop. Currently, this plant is one of the top 10 problematic weeds throughout the Southeastern United States, including Kentucky. Multiflora rose was originally introduced for use as a living fence and wildlife cover. This highly invasive species now inhabits pastures, desirable landscapes and wasteland areas. Kudzu was introduced as an ornamental plant in the late 1800s. Kudzu is a major

More and more people are evaluating the products they bring into their homes. Additionally, more and more companies are making more environmentally friendly products available

SAMS - BOLTON

to consumers. W h i l e you may not want to purchase the products marketed as Diane green or Mason environmentally friendly Extension just yet, you Notes might consider some of the following steps to make your own cleaning habits a bit more environmentally

friendly. Use the amount of product recommended on the label. This helps not only the environment but your wallet as well. Using too much of a cleaning product does not mean an item will be cleaner. It usually means the excess product is going down the drain. Some products have a scent. Using too much of a product may leave a lingering odor. You may find yourself reacting to the odors in your home. Choose

products without added scents and, use only the amounts recommended. Choose the proper and best product for the job at hand. When possible, purchase multi-purpose cleaning products. This will cut down on the number of empty bottles going to the recycle facility or landfill. Keep things clean. Don’t let the dust and dirt build up. Getting a little bit of scum off of something is a lot easier than getting a lot of built-up scum off of something.

Think about the waste generated by the product being used. Cleaning wipes might be convenient and useful, but they are typically thrown in the trash after one use. Is there a less wasteful way to achieve the goal? Take a close look at the company making the products being promoted as environmentally friendly. Does that company employ friendly manufacturing standards and practices? Are they environmental stewards? Take a close look at what you put in your trash or recycling bin for a month. See if there are some simple things you can do to cut down on the waste by making some simple changes in your cleaning product choices or routines. You don’t have to start making all of your own cleaning products to take steps toward environmental stewardship. Small changes can make a big difference too.

Bushelman “Ted was a friend who taught me many things in life such as how to work hard and not expect much in return. He volunteered countless hours setting up cameras and running wires here at Thomas More College so that we could have our games on local TV and live on the Internet. He was so passionate about what he did even the production of small college sports he made it great. Thomas More and I will miss you, Ted, Thanks!� Terry Connor Director of Athletics Thomas More College “Ted was an inspirational, community leader.

We never knew what the idea would be, but always knew that it would be one of a kind and memorable. While most of our thoughts now are of the fun times with Ted, we also know that he represented CVG in not only times of great joy and triumph, but also in times of great difficulty and calamity, all with the same expertise and efficiency characteristic of a true professional. He was a great asset to CVG and this entire community and will be greatly missed.� Barbara Schempf Director of Government & Public Relations Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport “Ted Bushelman was an extraordinary man and leader for Northern Kentucky. Though I had the opportunity to work with him on several occasions I most enjoyed the time he and I spent working on a committee for the Kenton County Public Library.

He has given countless hours of his life to benefit our community. “A recent recipient of the Rotary’s Citizen of the Year Award, he was a master as the spokesperson for the Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport and always provided a plethora of information or a reassuring calm to the community as he shared insights from airport happenings. “Our community is a better place thanks to Ted Bushelman.

Chamber seeks nominations for small business awards The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for the 2011 Small Business Success Awards. The Success Awards are the most prestigious small business awards in Northern Kentucky and are presented annually in the categories of construction trades, manufacturing/distribution, retail and hospitality, service, professional service, and not-for-profit. “For a small business to not only withstand, but flourish through the recent harsh economic times, is such an accolade to their leadership, commitment and hard work. The impact that small businesses have on our local economy is something we should praise and celebrate,� said Morgan Feldman, chairwoman of the Small Business Celebration Committee. To be eligible for a Success Award, a business

must have completed three or more full years of operation and have fewer than 100 employees. In the categories of retail and hospitality, service, and professional service, sales must be under $5 million. Nonprofits have slightly different parameters, but are similarly judged on business success. Construction trades and manufacturing/distribution sales must be under $10 million. The award is open to members of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and to all small businesses that meet the criteria in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties. “Winners are judged on a formula that includes financial success but also takes into account community service, innovation, use of resources, and growth in personnel or productivity,� Feldman said. “We look at the total package of what drives business success.�

The application deadline is Friday, April 22. The chamber will host two informational meetings, known as preview sessions, that enable nominees to talk with past winners and gain advice on completing the application. A session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 22. Applications are confidential, with an impartial and anonymous panel of judges determining the winners. The winners will be announced at a luncheon scheduled for Thursday, June 16, at the Drawbridge Hotel. Gold sponsors of the event are PNC Bank and St. Elizabeth Healthcare. Silver sponsors are Heritage Bank, Ohio Casualty and The Roeding Group. Nomination forms are available online at the “Events� page at www.nkychamber.com, or by calling Pam Mastruserio at the chamber at 859-578-6384.
