Residents alerted to sign up for CodeRed By Amy Scalf

BURLINGTON — There’s one thing Boone County Emergency Management needs in order for the new notification system to work. Residents’ contact information. Residents and business owners can sign up to receive CodeRed emergency notifications and weather warnings by going to the county website, The emergency notification system matches published telephone numbers and computerized mapping information, allowing officials to notify residents in a specific area. But that information doesn’t account for residents with unpublished home phone numbers or homes that don’t have a landline telephone. “This is a step forward in tech-

nology for us,” said Mark Ihrig, Boone County’s Emergency Management director. “There are two separate services. One is the emergency notificaIhrig tions that would come from the county office, and the other one, the weather warning system, is completely optional.” For instance, if a tanker truck carrying hazardous materials wrecked on a county road, adjacent residents who could be affected by fumes would receive an emergency notification. There’s no automatic call for weather notifications, including flash floods, severe thunderstorms or tornadoes. In order for residents to receive weather warning calls, they have to sign up through the community en-

rollment form on the website, or call the Emergency Management office at 859-334-2279. Residents can choose if they want to receive text, email or phone notifications. They also can register more than one number for each address. For instance, family members can register their phone numbers on an elderly relative’s address, or businessownerscanhavetheservice contact their cellphones in addition to the office line. “What’s important is that residents get the information they want to receive in the ways they want to receive it,” he said. “They have to register for the weather notifications, but they don’t have to get all of them. They can sign up for only tornado warnings, if that’s what they want. It’s a very customizable system.” Ihrig said the notification system isn’t triggered by potential bad weather. “It doesn’t activate for a

“I started freaking out,” Scott remembered. “But I knew Sadie had him.” Sadie brought Jacob to the side of the pool. He was fine. “You never realize how fast they can get away from you,” Scott shared. “In a blink of an eye, something like that can happen.” Today Jacob isn’t afraid of the water; in fact he has even learned how to swim. Tamara Elliott of Burlington, Sadie’s Girl Scout leader, heard about the story. Elliott,

who has known Sadie since she was 5, nominated the Brownie for the Girl Scout Medal of Honor. On April 26, Sadie received the Medal of Honor from the Girl Scouts of Kentucky Wilderness Road Council in Lexington. “I’m so proud of her,” said her grandmother. She and her husband have had custody of Sadie since she was born. “Sadie is very sweet, loves

UNION — Jane’s Saddlebag is expecting to host one of the biggest wine festivals in Kentucky this year, with 21 wineries expected to pour alongside 60 craft vendors May 31 and June 1. The festival will be noon-6 p.m. Saturday, May 31, and Sunday, June 1, at Jane’s Saddlebag, 13989 Ryle Road, Union. “MainStrasse Village last year claimed to have the largest wine festival and they had 19 wineries,” said Brett Blackmore, a co-owner of Jane’s Saddlebag. Jane’s Sadlebag is a 43-acre heritage tourism business near Big Bone Lick State Park. It features a petting zoo, river flatboat, general store, hay rides and wine shop. This year’s wine festival will be on five acres overlooking the Ohio River, Blackmore said. The petting zoo grounds will be closed during the festival to accommodate additional parking, he said. Last year’s first-ever weekend wine and craft festival brought about 2,500 people to taste the offerings of 10 wineries and to see 30 craft vendors, he said. “The event was really successful,” Blackmore said. A portion of last year’s festi-

val proceeds helped three families receive treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and this year’s festival will again double as a fundraiser for the hospital, he said. There will be an opportunity for people to donate directly to Cincinnati Children’s at the festival, and a portion of proceeds will be given to the hospital, he said. Blackmore said he and his wife, Samantha, wanted a charity aspect to the festival and chose Cincinnati Children’s because of how important their son Wyatt is to them. He will turn 2 in June, and even though he is not undergoing treatment See FESTIVAL, Page A2 Vol. 10 No. 33 © 2014 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

sure that the people who want to be notified get those warnings.” In March, county leaders signed a $42,900 contract with Code Red to provide the service for one year. The contract can be renewed at the same cost for up to three years. Ihrig said the enrollment page will remain active on the website as long as the county is contracted for the service. “People might move or change their phone number, or they might change their mind about what notifications they want to receive,” he said. “We’ll never close the enrollment page as long as we’re using the system. It’s just a matter of understanding people need to go ahead and do it now, so they’ll get the notifications when they come.”

Jane’s Saddlebag reins in 21 wineries for festival

By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith

Mercedes Iles, also known as Sadie, comes off as a shy girl. When the 8-year-old speaks, her voice is low. Sometimes she prefers to let her actions do the talking. Like last summer, when she saved her 2-year-old cousin Jacob from drowning. It happened during a family outing at a swimming pool in Burlington. Megan Scott of Elsmere, Jacob’s mother, recalled that “Jacob was out of the pool.” She was drying him off with a towel. But when she turned her attention to her other son, Jacob took off running and jumped back into the pool. “All we heard was a splash,” said Sophia Iles of Florence, Sadie’s grandmother But Sadie, who was still in the pool, reacted in a heartbeat. She quickly caught up with Jacob, so quickly that his head never went under the water.

watch, that’s just the possibility of a tornado. It will only notify when it’s a warning, and it will only call the ones the weather service sees in the path of the storm,” he said. “If we had gotten a tornado in the far southern end of Boone County, people who live in other areas would not have been called. “It’s very hyper-local so no one else will be bothered,” Ihrig added. In the future, more notifications could be added. “We could take it a step forward and send non-emergent notifications, from public services when they’re starting road work, or local governments could send a notification for a city meeting or community event,” Ihrig said. “You would only get those notifications if you registered to receive them. We don’t want to bother anybody who doesn’t want to get a call, but we want to make

achieve the highest mark in the country on their assessments. According to, the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program provides a recognized national standard of musical success through a sequenced course of study from beginner to advanced levels. Kioni’s father, Daniel Bush, said she actually took her assessment in December 2012. At that time, Kioni was just shy of her ninth birthday, her mother Amy Bush said. She completed her performance in Mason, Ohio, and said she had memorized and played pieces for the judges who also evaluated Kioni on things like scales, chords and sight reading. At that time, she didn’t know she had ranked the highest in the nation. “I probably thought well, if each mistake is worth a deduction of five points, the I probably got about a 75 and if each deduction is worth one point, then I probably got a 95,” Kioni said. “And as it turned out, I was like ‘Oh my goodness.’ I did not expect that at all.” While Kioni said they learned a few weeks after the assessment she had received a 98 percent, Daniel said they just learned about the rankings March 31. “No, I did not expect

it,” Kioni said. “I was like ‘Whoa. Wow,’ but I don’t think I was as dazed as my parents are.” Daniel and Amy were surprised too. In fact, Amy said when she first saw the email, she told Dan it was a mistake and asked him to reply telling the organization so. “My view of getting this sort of award is that it would be from a little girl who practiced day and night,” Amy said. “Did you practice day and night?” she asked Kioni. “No,” Kioni replied. “I only practiced about half an hour per day or less.” “So I thought it was a mistake,” Amy said, “but it turned out no, it was not a mistake.” Daniel said they couldn’t believe the outcome. “Actually, I thought it was good, but it’s not really the biggest thing in the world for me,” Kioni said. According to Amy, Kioni was 2 when she first said she wanted to play the piano. When the family lived in the Phillipines, Daniel said she took Suzuki piano

According to Amy, that’s a Japanese method where players learn by ear. “Then we hopped all over the world and she took a couple of months of lessons over in Scotland,” he said. “It was really within the last 2.5 years we’ve been here in Kentucky she’s been able to be stable, with a regular piano teacher each and every week.” Kioni said she like the

piano because of its complexity and plans to continue to play as she gets older. “Maybe just as a hobby,” the Mann Elementary fifth-grader said. “I don’t think I’ll be like this world-famous musician or anything.” Kioni took the assessment again in December 2013 and received a 94 percent, though she won’t know how that ranks until next year.

Walton school board chairman Tina Crase dies By Nancy Daly

Tina Crase, chairperson of the Walton-Verona school board, 50, died May 14 at St. Elizabeth Hospice in Edgewood. Mrs. Crase, 50, of Verona, was first elected in 2006 and was in her second four-year term on the board. Fellow school board member Paula Jolley said, “Tina had a great passion for her WaltonVerona school district and the children. “The children were always first, always for the best of the children,” Jolley said. Crase could be seen at most school functions even if one of own children wasn’t involved, Jolley said. “She made you laugh and she made you think,” Jolley said. Mrs. Crase and her husband, Dwayne, have

been residents of Verona for 21 years and Walton-Verona parents for the past 16. Crase PROVIDED They have a son that is a junior at WaltonVerona High School and a daughter who is a 2010 Walton-Verona graduate currently attending Eastern Kentucky University. Prior to her board work, Mrs. Crase was an active employee at Walton-Verona Elementary School serving on numerous district and state committees as well as three terms as the local PTSA President K-12. At the state level, Mrs. Crase served on the Commissioner of Education’s parent advisory committee which established standards for family friendly school districts Mrs. Crase remained

active in her service work through involvement with the Walton-Verona PTAs, Wake Up Walton-Verona committee and board/ school committees. Most recently she was the board’s legislative representative with the Kentucky School Board Association. She was the daughter of Carolyn Ann Brewer Usleaman, of Ludlow, and the late Charles Roland Usleaman who died in 1997. In addition to her mother, survivors include her husband, Guy Dwayne Crase; daughter, Katelyn Crase; son, Jacob Crase; sister, Janice Elaine Rouse of Ludlow; brother, Barry Keith Usleaman of Verona and many other relatives and friends. Memorials are suggested to the Tina Crase Memorial Fund in care of any Fifth Third Bank.

her cousins, and is good at dancing,” she continued. Sadie did tap and ballet for four years and has been doing hiphop for the last two years. And she’s musical, too. “She taught herself how to play ‘Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star’ on the piano.” Where did Sadie learn how to swim? “Grandpa James,” Sadie answered, pointing to her great grandfather, James Dalton of Florence. “By the time she was 3 years old, she could jump off the diving board into 9 feet of water,” he said. Sadie is one of just 29 girls in the country awarded the Medal of Honor this year, according to Elliott. “The Medal of Honor is a life saving-award from the Girl Scouts of the USA that is given to somebody who saves a life with no risk to their own life,” she explained. “Sadie is my hero,” her aunt said. “She saved my baby.” “I’m so happy that I got this,” Sadie said, pointing to her medal. “I didn’t want my cousin to drown.” For more information about local Girl Scouts, please visit or call 859-3426263.

at the hospital for any reason, Blackmore said he knows the hospital is there if needed by any family. “He touched us so deeply that I was like ‘You know, let’s give it to Children’s’,” Blackmore said. A large number of wineries are coming to the second wine festival at Jane’s Saddlebag because the 10 wineries attending last year’s inaugural festival provided a good environment, said Dennis Walter, president of the Northern Kentucky Vintners and Grape Growers Association, and owner of StoneBrook Winery in Camp Springs. “It’s location and venue,” Walter said. “There’s a lot more wineries that are close that don’t have to travel a long distance to be there.” Walter said he is hoping to have the approval to bring a new mango-infused fruit wine to the wine festival in Union, in addition to the popular blackberry and blueberry wines and a red – possibly a Chambourcin. Jane’s Saddlebag offers a farming and local business connection wineries can relate to, Walter said. “We think it’s a local venue, and it’s supporting a local business for us,” he said.

$52,000 needed to complete 9/11 Memorial By Melissa Stewart

Just under two years of collecting and fundraising for the Northern Kentucky 9/11 Memorial is almost complete. According to memorial committee co-chair Lou Hartfiel, about $98,000 has been raised so far,

leaving about $52,000 left to go. The total fundraising goal is $150,000. “It’s really been heartwarming how the community has stepped up as much as they have,” Hartfiel said. The partially constructed 9/11 Memorial is located at Crescent Springs Community Park,

adjacent to the Kenton County Veterans Memorial on the corner of Buttermilk Pike and Collins Road. The completed memorial will include renderings of the Twin Towers, a pentagon-shaped base and at the center an Ibeam from the Twin Towers in New York City. The piece will pay tribute to firefighters, police, the airline industry, civilians, and the Pentagon affected in the 2001 attacks. It will include a timeline of the events that occurred on Sept. 11 and subtle images and tributes to each of the groups affected. Funding for the memorial has primarily been through private contributions, Hartfiel said. Donation boxes are located at the Crescent Springs and Villa Hills Ameristops and Kremer’s Market in Crescent Springs. A “Stand Up for 9/11” comedy night emceed by Gary Burbank took place last

More information can be found at Recently the Fort Mitchell-based independent wealth management firm Altus Wealth Management became a First Responder sponsor. This is the highest sponsorship level and recognizes contributions of $10,000 and up. Altus president and managing partner Steve O’Connor said the company gave toward the project because it wants to see it come to fruition. “The memorial represents the stories of every American and how 9/11 changed our lives,” he said. “The Twin Towers of the memorial, which always projected our economic power to the world, are a reminder of what we lost as a nation but also a testament to the power and resiliency of the American people.” For Altus, he said, this project has special meaning. “The events of 9/11 had a dramatic impact on the financial services industry and the clients we serve,” he said. “We will never forget the fear that gripped financial markets and investor alike. For Altus Wealth Management the Northern Kentucky 9/11 Memorial is all about remembering what matter most; family, friends and the sacrifice so many have made to make this the greatest country on earth.” A Northern Kentuck-

Factory expansion brings jobs to Florence Specialty materials company Celanese Corp. on May 15 broke ground on a $20 million expansion of its manufacturing operation in Florence. The 25,000-square-foot expansion will add prototyping and production lines and is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2015. Ten new jobs will be created; the operation now employs 350. “About 80 percent of

our new job creation last year came from existing businesses. This is another example of that,” said Boone County Judge-executive Gary Moore, who attended the groundbreaking. “We’re always excited when a company is prospering and growing and expanding.” Dallas, Texas-based Celanese is a Fortune 500 technology and specialty materials company that

employs about 7,400 people worldwide. Its engineered plastics are used in automotive and transportation, electronics, consumer goods, medical and other industries. The company, formerly known as Ticona, opened a compounding plant in Boone County in 1984 and has grown steadily over the years. The facility also houses the company’s research and development center.

Fernando aces MathCounts competition Community Recorder

Jeraan Fernando from Gray Middle School took first place in the Northern Kentucky Chapter MathCounts competition held at Northern Kentucky University on Feb. 22. Jeraan received full four-year scholarships to both University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University. In addition he received an iPad Air from CINSAM, the Center for Integrative Natural Science and Mathematics. Gray Middle School MathCounts team took second place in the chapter competition and fifth place in the state competition in Louisville. Jeraan says his math teacher Alice Thompson at Mann Elementary identified his math talent as early as first grade and gave him and a few other students more challenging math problems than the normal grade level. Roseanne Koehler, the MathCounts coach in 2012 and 2013, and current coaches Ellen Klug and Gina Ramage, were also cited by Jeraan, as well as all the math teachers he has had at Mann Elementary and Gray Middle School. MathCounts is a program for middle school students. Through the competition series it cultivates talent in the nation's brightest young minds. More information, visit

Colllins Elementary has rallied behind para-educator Bev Hasting’s gift of a kidney to her husband of 43 years, Derek, who remains hospitalized.PROVIDED

Special students rally around kidney donor

By Karen Meiman Recorder Contributor

FLORENCE — Inside the special education room at Collins Elementary School in Florence, Bev Hastings greets students with a warm smile. “Miss Bev. Miss Bev,” the students, often with significant needs, cry out. “Miss Bev” – who is two students’ homeroom assistant, also called a “para” – is always nearby to listen to a student’s story or give one of her well-known hugs. The special education students have labeled Hastings a hero, but that’s not only because of the manner in which she treats them. Less than a month ago, Hastings gave one of her kidneys to her husband, Derek. They have been married 43 years. “We just wanted to have a few more years together,” Hasting said about her gift. “I can’t really give this feel-

ing words. My husband and I just kind of joke to each other about the fact that he is walking around with one of my organs.” It’s a lot easier for Hastings to sum up how it feels to have a group of people unconditionally come to your aid. “It is surreal,” she said. “It is like an out-of-body experience. The last month is really a blur, but to have people help you is simply overwhelming.” Hastings is still sluggish from her surgery. Her husband has had a tougher time. He has been hospitalized since the transplant and the couple must travel to Christ Hospital in Cincinnati every other day for Derek’s infusions that help his body not reject his wife’s gift. Hospital commutes are a two-hour round trip from their home in Demossville. The cost of Derek’s medications and surgery has financially taken a toll. “Bev is such a quiet, hum-

ble person,” said fellow para-educator Brandy Kahrs of Independence. “She was reluctant to allow us to help her, so I finally asked, ‘How about we do a benefit for you and you not know anything about it?’” Hastings said “yes.” Kahrs, special education teacher Christy Pellerin and another para-educator Liz Cripe, of Union, will host a benefit for the couple May 31 at the Holiday Inn at the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport. “The kids adore Bev and miss her terribly! She is loved by all because she is one of those generous, kind hearts that would give anything to help others,” said Pellerin. “Derek wrote a very touching letter to all of us thanking us for supporting Bev.” Students have also sent messages, some showing humor in their innocence. “You are our hero,” one student wrote on a card.

“It is great that you gave a kidney stone to your husband,” another wrote with good intentions. “They are so sweet and loving,” Hastings said. “People tell you that it takes someone special to do our job, but you don’t really think about it,” Kahrs said. “After a while you look around and say, ‘Maybe it does take someone with a special gift to do what we do.’” The hours of the May 31 event are 7 to 11 p.m. A silent auction, prize wheel and music are planned. Tickets are $20 with dinner, $10 without. Presale tickets may be purchased from 5:30 to 8 p.m. May 21 and noon to 3 p.m. May 25 at Collins Elementary School. Kahrs may be reached at 859-750-1206 or Donations can be made at any Bank of Kentucky c/o Bev or Derek Hastings.

Stambaugh named elementary counselor of the year UNION — Stephanie Stambaugh loves going to work every day. “There are not many people that can say that,” the Longbranch Elementary school counselor said. “I love that I never know what is going to come my way in a day and no two days are ever the same. I love when a student comes to check in with me and tells me they feel better or that strategy you gave me to try worked. A key factor to Stephanie me loving my Stambaugh job are the PROVIDED people that I work with. We are all at Longbranch for the kids as it should be.” Just as much as Stambaugh loves her job, she is loved by the students and staff she works with. This love was affectionately displayed when she was named elementary counselor of the

year by The Kentucky School Counseling Association. “The kids and staff were amazing,” she said. “I got letters from students, posters from all the fourth-grade classrooms, flowers from the staff and my principal, it was too much.” Stambaugh has been a school counselor for10 years. She started at Longbranch four years ago when the school opened. She has a bachelor’s in elementary education, as well as special education. She said that counseling felt like it was a natural progression of her career. According to her friend and Longbranch library media specialist Stacie Kegley, the job is certainly a natural fit for Stambaugh. “Stephanie is a very intuitive, hands-on personality,” Kegley said. “She loves to be out with our students and takes the needed time to know each one. She is a motivator. Stephanie’s positive outlook is contagious. She is a

fabulous collaborator and is willing to help others, students or staff. She has a very open door policy and always makes you feel welcome. Stephanie is ready to listen and offer advice, assistance and solutions at a moment’s notice.” According to Kegley, Stambaugh “lives her work.” “It takes a special person to be as effective counselor as Stephanie is,” she said. “She is not a counselor that ends her day when the work day is over. She is open, caring, giving, informative and knowledgeable at all times. She is an innovator. She has an incredible vision for what her profession is and can be and is constantly moving forward to create a better environment for us all.” Stambaugh, 39, resides in Hebron with her husband, Eric, and their two children Ella, 7, and Brayden, 5.

Tennis rivals celebrate state bids together By James Weber

Middendorf enjoys home support in Freedom debut By James Weber

FLORENCE — Like many players in the Frontier League, Dave Middendorf doesn’t realistically think he will throw a pitch in Major League Baseball. That is why the 25-year old lefthander is focused on a more concrete and immediate goal – winning a championship in the independent baseball league. Middendorf is in his first year with the Florence Freedom, who swept a three-game series from Washington to open the 2014 season and are 3-0 heading into play May 20. “I most enjoy all the guys and how we get along,” he said. “We don’t have any ‘me, me’ guys. We’re just playing to win. All of us are trying to get picked up by an affiliated team, but with me, I know the road is coming to the end and I want to win a championship.” Middendorf came close to a league title last year. He pitched for the Lake Erie Crushers last year in the same league, helping lead them to the championship series. Schaumburg swept the finals, 3-0, last year, and Middendorf was set to pitch the fourth game in that series after throwing twice in the semifinals, including the decisive fifth game. Middendorf was 12-7 last

year with a 2.60 earned-run average in 21 games, 19 of them starts. A Cincinnati La Salle graduate and Northern Kentucky University standout, Middendorf was traded to the Freedom in the offseason and is thrilled to be back. “It’s pretty good to be home,” he said. “When I left affiliated ball, I felt like I was going to be going to the Freedom. I felt like it was meant to be, but last year it didn’t work out. It’s a good feeling. It’s nice to go home to your own bed at night.” Middendorf is coming off a successful first start with his new team May 16 in the second game of the year. He went seven innings, scattering four hits and giving up only two runs in a

6-2 win over Washington. The left-hander threw 93 pitches, 58 of them for strikes. His next start is set for Friday at Schaumburg, the same team he didn’t get to throw against in the 2013 championship series. He enjoyed playing in front of family and friends in Florence. He had about 10 supporters there, and said there would have more except his parents were on an anniversary trip to Florida. “I felt pretty good Friday,” he said. “I didn’t really have the jitters like I would normally have in other starts. I was pitching at home and comfortable. I’m not a hard-throwing See FREEDOM, Page A10

While they were fighting for individual glory, they didn’t have teammates playing at the same time. So A.J. Berk and Jake Honschopp focused on rooting for each other. The two seniors won berths to the KHSAA state tournament in boys singles on the same afternoon during the Ninth Region Tournament at Boone Woods in Burlington. They celebrated each other’s victories as they advanced to the state tournament. “He came over and celebrate with me when I won and I did the same thing when he won,” Honschopp said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better friends.” Both players are the veteran headliners for schools without much tradition in boys tennis. Honschopp attends Cooper High School and earned the boys program’s first-ever state tennis berth, joining Chelsea Nibert in girls singles in 2011. Honschopp has been the top Jaguar player all of his five years on the team. Berk, a Scott High School senior, enjoyed his third trip to state in singles. Honschopp had fallen one match short the previous two years. “It’s one of my biggest goals as a senior to get here and I want to see how it goes,” Honschopp said. “I cried a little bit when I won, which I haven’t done before in any field. It was probably my biggest accomplishment in sports. It was a big relief.” Berk won his match first in the regional and was one of the first to congratulate Honschopp after his win in the quarterfinals. “I ran out on the court,” Berk said. “I didn’t want to steal his girlfriend’s or his family’s glory, but I had to go out there and hug him. He’s a brother to me.” The state duo have known each other since their freshman year and practice together often in the offseason. “It was great,” Honschopp said. “There is not a ton of accomplished players at Cooper, and he is like another member of the team. I’m proud to represent Cooper. It’s going to be cool to have my name on a banner next to Chelsea’s.” Both players had rough outings May 15 in the first round of

the state tournament. Honschopp lost to fifth seed Jordan Pitts of South Oldham 6-0, 6-1. Berk lost to Daniel Lineberry of Atherton 6-1, 6-2. They both plan to continue their love of the sport at the next level while they go in different directions. Honschopp will go to the University of Louisville to study sports marketing and communications, while hopefully playing tennis at the club level. Berk will play for the team at Georgetown College and major in business administration. “It’s a beautiful campus,” he said. “I drove up on its campus and it just felt right, felt like home, and after meeting the people there. They’re so friendly, southern hospitality. I met some professors and sat in on some classes.” Both players like tennis for being an individual sport in which they have full control of the outcome. “It’s all on you,” Berk said. “You have to be mentally tough. You make your own decisions. You keep your head and succeed, or you lose your head and fail.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Crusaders, Bearcats strong in regional track By James Weber and Gannett News Service

Walton-Verona junior Matthew Harper runs the 3,200 at the Class 1A, Region 4 meet May 16 in Verona.JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

It was another big day at the Class 1A, Region 4 track and field championships for the girls athletes at St. Henry District High School as they captured their third straight regional title. The Crusaders battled all day with Newport Central Catholic and beat the Thoroughbreds, 174-142. “It’s obviously a good feeling,” St. Henry head girls coach Tony Harden said. “NewCath is going to be tough. We got the better of them today, but they beat us at conference. State is a different format, so it will be interesting to see what happens next week. Nobody remembers us if we don’t win state, so it’s going to be another great battle.” Celia Eltzroth won the girls triple jump. Paige Noble won

the high jump. Tina Felix and Kim Spritzky were 1-2 in the pole vault. Felix won the 100 hurdles and 300 hurdles as well. “Tina is only a sophomore, so we’re really proud of what she did,” Harden said. “When you score 174 points it’s a team effort, but if anyone on the team had a standout performance tonight, it was her.” Samantha Hentz claimed the 1,600 and Taylor Connett was second. Hentz and Connett switched places in the 800. St. Henry won the 4x800 and 4x400. Madison Culbertson was second in the 100 and 200. Renee Svec won the 3,200. In boys, Kevin Cawley was second in shot put. Paul Wallenhorst was second in triple jump. The top two finishers in each event automatically qualify for state, with the next best 10 performances statewide also being invited. The state meet is May

24 at the University of Kentucky. Walton-Verona senior Jon Jones earned the title of Northern Kentucky’s fastest smallschool male with a time of 11.81 in the boys’100 meters, and then blew away the competition in the boys’ 400 by posting a time of 51.72. “I felt great during the 100,” Jones said. “There was a strong headwind so the time wasn’t what it should have been, but I felt good and had some good competition to push me.” Also for W-V, Scott Smith was second in the 400. The Bearcats’ Clark Crook was second in the long jump. Colin Crook won the 200. W-V was second in the 4x800 and won the 4x400, 4x200 and 4x100. The Bearcat girls team was second in the 4x100 as the only automatic qualifier but expected to get several other bids.

NKU baseball sees steady Division I progress


By Adam Turer


The Immaculate Heart of Mary eighth-grade girls basketball team enjoyed an outstanding season, finishing with a 37-3 record. The team won the Erv Whitford Memorial Tournament, the St. Joseph Crescent Springs Holiday Classic and the St. Henry Lady Crusader Classic, and was the 2014 NKMSAA District 2 and NKMSAA Regional champions. Team members include Lauren Handorf, Faith Kosco, Haley Cline, Libby Durrough, Annie Neiheisel, Katie Evans, Olivia Landry and Ashley Ives. Dan Flaig is the head coach, assisted by Brian Cline.

» TMC head baseball coach Jeff Hetzer has been named the Presidents’ Athletic Conference Coach of the Year and nine Saints have been named All-PAC by the conference’s head coaches. » The NCAA has announced the qualifiers for this week’s Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships and TMC junior Lucas Nare (Oldenburg E Academy) is one.

guy, I’m more of a contact pitcher and I need to concentrate.” Middendorf has plenty of experience in the Freedom’s home park, UC Health Stadium, as that was NKU’s home field for part of his tenure with the Norse. The pitcher of the year in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and the Midwest Region his senior year in 2011, he helped NKU win two league championships and was also a first-team AllAmerican in NCAA Division II. His 127 strikeouts in 2011 set a new single-

season record at NKU and were good for second among all Division II pitchers. He also set a career mark for strikeouts with 349 over his four years with the Norse. His 25 career wins rank third all-time at NKU and his 2.53 career ERA is fourth. “I loved the dog pile after winning a championship,” he said. “I had a strikeout record but winning championships is huge for me.” Middendorf was drafted in the 22nd round of the 2011 MLB Draft by Kansas City and pitched two years in the Royals’ system.

Northern Kentucky University’s baseball team wrapped up its second season as a Division I program showing signs of progress. The Norse won twice as many conference games and nearly twice as many games overall as they did a season ago. NKU finished the season 14-37 overall and 6-21 in Atlantic Sun Conference play. “I feel really good about what we did,” said head coach Todd Asalon. “We ran out of gas toward the end of the season, but I’m happy with where we’re at and with where we’re going.” A season-ending sixgame losing streak put a damper on what was a mostly positive season. Highlights included nonconference wins over Eastern Kentucky, Butler, Xavier, Ball State, and Morehead State. Despite finishing at the bottom of the A-Sun for the secondstraight year, the Norse put up much more of a fight in conference play. “I thought teams had to play really hard to beat us this year,” Asalon said. “There’s not a bad team in our league.” When the Norse defeated Butler on May 7, they gave Asalon his 600th career head coaching victory. It was his 456th win in his 14 seasons at NKU, which followed

his 144 victories as head coach at Thomas More College. While he would have liked to add number 601 to his total this season, he is grateful for the milestone. “It’s a reflection of the kids I’ve coached,” said Asalon. “I’ve been lucky through 20 years to coach some really good kids.” The team expects to continue moving in the right direction next season. Twelve newcomers have already committed to join the program. While Asalon expects junior catcher Jordan Procyshen to be drafted by a major league team and the team will miss departed senior and A-Sun Academic All-Conference honoree Zac Asman, the cupboard is far from bare. The key to next season

will be how the Norse develop pitching depth. “I understand now that we need to carry more pitching,” said Asalon. “That grind of 56 games took a toll on the health of our pitchers and that hurt us down the stretch. It’s a pitching league.” Asalon looks to conference foe Kennesaw State as a blueprint for his program. Like Northern Kentucky, the Owls were a highly successful Division II program that made the leap to Division I. In its eight years at the higher level, the Owls have taken some lumps but have been able to continue their success. Asalon believes that his Northern Kentucky program is on the right track. “I just want us to be a good Division I program.”

May 15 question: What advice would you give to graduating high school and college seniors?

“I do not envy today’s graduates due to the decreasing job market in the U.S. So many jobs have been moved abroad and robots and computers have replaced many others. Plus the competition is tougher than ever and many talented people are underemployed. “College is not the automatic job qualifier it was many years ago and it is also very pricey. For those graduating high school they should be sure that college is what they really want to do at this time. “A two- to four-year stint in the armed forces could add some maturing and finances for college or end up being that career after all. “For those graduating college hopefully they attained good grades and chose a major that employers are interested in for hiring purposes. “The days of majoring in liberal arts are over unless your parents own the business. But the good news is there always seems to be government jobs with great pensions and job security. Go figure!”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Support for Union fish fry was awesome

The Boy Scouts of Troops 702 and 805 want to thank the community of Union for joining us at the Good Friday Fish Fry. Thanks to your support, the event was a huge success. The Union Boy Scouts would like to thank the City Council and its staff for giving us the opportunity to do the fish fry. A special thanks to Karen Franxman who put a lot of extra personal time into coaching the Scouts through the processes of a successful community event. We would also like to thank Randy and Linda Barlow for letting us park cars on their property; Tim Klier and St.Tim’s for all of their support; Donato’s of Union, Snappy Tomato of Richwood and Pizza Hut of Walton for putting event fliers on their pizza boxes all week; Kroger for supporting our boys; the businesses along U.S. 42 for letting us put up fliers; the firefighters for giving us tips from years past, and Colonial Cottage for assisting with food preparations. The biggest “Thank You” goes out to all the residents of Union who showed up for our fish fry. In most communities, troops work independently of one another but not here; because of the support of our community leaders and residents the Scouts from two separate troops, 702 and 805, came together for one big event. The spirit of cooperative Scouting is strong in Union. We learned a lot this year and it will be even better in the years to come. P.S. We will have a “Take Out Only” line next year. UNION

What is your favorite old Kentucky home? Many things draw people to Kentucky – natural beauty, sporting events and bourbon, to name a few. But when you take a closer look at the places that bring visitors to communities, including restaurants, art galleries and local businesses, you often find a historic building whose charm is embodied in its authenCraig ticity, not to Potts mention COMMUNITY historic atRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST tractions that are destinations unto themselves. In Kentucky, we are fortunate to have an abundance of historic resources. These are the places that evoke a shared heritage, and tell stories about our past and who we are today. Many communities have beautifully preserved downtowns, which have benefited from participation in the Kentucky Main Street Program, a community revitalization strategy with building preservation at its core. Others range from Civil War battlefields to grand homes like the Governor’s Mansion, to the Belle of Louisville, historic African American hamlets, churches, public buildings, old distilleries, even prehistoric archaeological sites that span the state. But historic resources also include places that not everyone might associate with being “historic” – like kitschy roadside architecture, farms passed down through generations, postwar neighborhoods, Ranchstyle houses, steel-truss bridges, old factories, state park buildings constructed through the Works Progress Administration, even early

PROVIDED

roadways lined by rock fences. As the state historic preservation office, the Kentucky Heritage Council’s mission is to encourage and assist with the protection and preservation of all of these places, and that’s why we join with others across the nation each May to celebrate National Historic Preservation Month. Preservation simply means taking care of historic resources, and in the commonwealth this is something we do well. Historic places matter to Kentuckians, and we take pride in them just as we do our home state, which we honor each year by singing “My Old Kentucky Home” just prior to the Derby. To commemorate National

Historic Preservation Month and highlight all the many historic places that Kentuckians call “home,” the Kentucky Heritage Council has launched an online contest based on our state song. Through our “This is MY Old Kentucky Home” Facebook photo contest, we invite Kentuckians to share how and why they value historic buildings and to show us the place where they feel most “at home.” The premise is simple. Hold a sign that says “This is MY Old Kentucky Home” in front of your favorite Old Kentucky Home, take a snapshot, “like” our Facebook page, then click the “Enter to Win” icon to enter it into the contest. Anyone who “likes” KHC’s Facebook page can

also click on the contest icon to vote daily for his or her favorites. The only rule is, the building or other place pictured in the photo must be 50 years of age or older. The contest deadline is midnight Friday, May 23. For details, see the Kentucky Heritage Council’s Facebook page or visit We also encourage participants to post their photos on social media using the hashtag #myoldkyhome. The winner will receive an all-expense paid weekend in Bardstown, site of Federal Hill, the house said to have inspired Stephen Foster to pen “My Old Kentucky Home.” This promotion is about celebrating the cultural and architectural inheritance that has been passed down to us. Landmarks such as Federal Hill and Churchill Downs help define our collective identity. But Kentucky’s history as presented through our buildings is so much richer – and so much more culturally, ethnically and aesthetically diverse – that we find meaning in many different kinds of historic places, large and small, in every corner of the commonwealth. Our goal is to expand the message of the song and the idea of “My Old Kentucky Home” to reflect the broader diversity of Kentucky’s built environment. We also hope to create interest in the reuse and rehabilitation of historic buildings and raise awareness about the importance of preservation, so that future generations will also be able to call these special places “home.”

Allstate empowerment curriculum helps survivors of financial abuse While victims of domestic violence stay with their abusers for many reasons, economic dependence may be one of the most crippling. Abusers are able to assert and maintain control over victims by disallowing them from earning income, attainBob ing job trainParsons ing, driving, or managing COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST their own COLUMNIST finances. Perpetrators also indirectly affect employability as victims miss work for injuries, counseling, or legal services. Perpetrators may also commit other offenses, such as intentionally damaging a victim’s credit or requiring

that the victim hand over her paychecks. Financial abuse is pervasive, and too often survivors of domestic violence view themselves as being incapable of successfully functioning in the financial mainstream. This is why economic empowerment services are so important and why I decided to volunteer financial education classes through the Women’s Crisis Center (WCC), which serves victims of domestic violence in Northern Kentucky. WCC uses the Allstate Foundation’s financial empowerment curriculum Moving Ahead Through Financial Management, a tool designed specifically for survivors of domestic violence. This curriculum was created in partnership with The National Network to End Domestic

Violence in 2005. The Allstate Foundation also supports economic empowerment services at WCC, such as a matched-savings Individual Development Account (IDA) program and a credit-building micro-loan program. IDAs are the core of the economic empowerment program, through which survivors’ savings are matched 4:1 for use in purchasing a first home, postsecondary education, or small business startup. Survivors can also save for a car at a 1:1 match rate. At WCC, survivors work step-by-step on a sometimes long and difficult road to healing and self-sufficiency. The program’s services include emergency shelter, individual and group counseling, working with children who have witnessed violence, and helping survivors

to achieve economic empowerment. All of these services have been made possible with support from the Allstate Foundation, which has recognized the innovative strategies used by advocates at WCC. I am honored to represent a company committed to reducing the barriers faced by survivors of domestic violence. I’m also grateful to live in a place that has resources like WCC, which is making our community a better, safer place to live.

a celebration of Kentucky heritage Text by Nancy Daly | Photos by Marty Whitacre


njoying Kentucky burgoo, mint juleps and the music of Ricky Nye and Chris Douglas, guests watched the Run for the Roses on May 3 without leaving Northern Kentucky. The Dinsmore Homestead hosted its annual Derby at the Dinsmore Day on the grounds of the historic homestead in Burlington. Besides sipping Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature cocktail, guests bid on a silent auction and took tours of the 1800s Dinsmore House. The hat contest was a highlight for the party, a celebration of Kentucky heritage. Derby at the Dinsmore has taken place at the homestead for more than a decade to benefit Dinsmore. The historic living history site contains a house completed in 1842 and several outbuildings. Visitors can learn what rural life was like in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

BUSINESS UPDATE Rekindle Micro-Enterprise helps grad expand Many of us think about opening our own business, but while Iraq War veteran T.J. Dalton was attending school he did more than dream about it. He used his computer skills and started TJ’s Mobile Computer Service.

Then, while attending a business networking event in Covington, he found a way to expand and stabilize his business. That way was the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission’s Rekindle Micro-Enterprise Education Program. TJ’s Mobile Computer Service ( is lo-

cated on Burlington Pike in Florence and offers onsite service, remote tech support, computer repair, office networking, personal training, security, and website building. Rekindle is currently seeking applicants for its next class. Interested applicants should contact Ella Frye at or 859-655-2940

Rita Heikenfeld's broccoli cauliflower salad is picnic perfect. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Rita shares salads for picnic season We usually start Memorial Day out with my family, going to Mass at St. Philomena Church in Clermont County. The church is a beautiful small church, built in the 1830s. The Mass is held outdoors, Rita weather Heikenfeld permitting. RITA’S KITCHEN Afterward, there’s a gun salute to the fallen veterans and the parishioners serve everyone breakfast. We visit my parents’ graves there and put vases of fresh flowers on them. The grandkids help me plant sprigs of my heirloom mint around the graves, as well. It’s a meaningful tradition. I know many of you celebrate Memorial Day this way, whether remembering a fallen veteran, family or friends. Memorial Day is the official day for picnic season, too, and these recipes are some of my all-time favorites.

Sandy’s broccoli cauliflower salad with tangy yogurt dressing My neighbor, Sandy Shelton, brought a dish of this over. Oh my gosh, it was so good. It’s a yummy salad with the tanginess of the dressing offset by the sweetness of the grapes. Wouldn’t this be a nice take-along for a Memorial Day picnic? Now if you want my traditional buffet broccoli salad with a Marzetti like dressing, check out my website It’s a keeper, too.


6-8 slices bacon, cooked and diced 1/2 head each: cauliflower and broccoli, cut into small florets 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved, or more to taste - I used more 1/3 cup diced red onion, or more to taste 1/2 cup chopped pecans, or more to taste 1 small English cu-

cumber, diced (you may not need all) Shredded cheddar cheese.


If your cauliflower and broccoli are real large, double the dressing - you may not need all of it but it’s good on slaw, too. Whisk together: 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1/2 cup real mayonnaise 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme Salt and pepper to taste Pour dressing over salad ingredients and enjoy.

Corn bread salad

A really weird name, I admit, but one that’s requested by my readers a lot this time of year. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It’s easy to make. Oh, and did I mention, most folks come back for seconds – it’s that good. 1 package 8-1/2 ounces corn bread/muffin mix; one can, four ounces chopped green chilies, undrained - mild or spicy; one teaspoon cumin; 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano; one cup each: mayonnaise and sour cream; one envelope ranch salad dressing mix; two cans, 15 ounces each Great Northern beans, drained or a combo of your favorite; three cups corn; three good sized tomatoes, chopped; one bell pepper, chopped; one bunch green onions, chopped, white and green part both; one pound bacon, cooked and crumbled; three generous cups shredded cheddar cheese. Prepare corn bread according to package directions, stirring in chilies, cumin and oregano. Pour into sprayed 8-inch pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until done. Cool. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside. Crumble half the cornbread into a 9x13 casserole. Layer with

half of the rest of the ingredients and repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or more. Serves 10-12.

Interesting facts about Walton Cemetery

Memorial Day services on May 26 begin at the Walton Cemetery at 9:30 a.m. After a brief program and decorating of the graves, the ceremony will adjourn to the Veterans Memorial be-

hind City Hall. In observance of Memorial Day and in memory of our loved ones in Walton Cemetery dating back to 1866, I would like to share a few interesting facts.

Walton Cemetery was the site of the First Baptist Church in Walton. The lot was purchased for $50. In early 1870, church member Mrs. Snow requested to be buried Ruth by the Meadows church. COMMUNITY She was RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST buried by the back door. In 1876 the trustees purchased another adjoining lot to be used as a burying ground. The bell that was in the Bell Tower was saved by the Baptist members when the old church was no longer used. The bell had been stored until

recent years; members decided to provide a proper housing. It is now in secure setting on site next to the First Baptist Church on South Main Street in a beautiful tower for all of us to share. First Baptist Church retained ownership of the cemetery until 1964 when a Walton Cemetery Board was formed. The last day of school for Walton-Verona school system is May 30. Awards night will be May 20 at 6:30 p.m. Graduation will be held this year at the Florence Mt. Zion Baptist Church on Mt. Zion Road at 7 p.m. for convenience of the service. The third annual U.S. 25 Yard Sale (Dixie Highway) is scheduled for June 5-7 through the entire state of Kentucky. Booth space is available throughout the sale route on U.S. 25.

Explore savings of utility aggregation Ohioans can expect to see a jump in their electric bill as electric companies close down their coal-fired power plants, like Duke Energy Ohio’s Beckjord facility, in order to comply with new environmental laws. Instead, companies will burn natural gas to produce electricity – but that is getting more expensive because the bad winter we just had drained supplies. According to Duke Energy Retail spokesman Steve Brash, “Most of Howard the elecAin tricity HEY HOWARD! that’s in this region that we operate in comes from natural gas generation. The natural gas prices are the highest they’ve been in about three years.” The loss of coal-fired power plants also means our region has fewer facilities producing electricity. As a result, regulators have allowed many of the traditionally lower-cost utilities to increase a portion of their electric bill called the Electric Capacity Charge. “For our area it has gone from $27 to $126. So it’s about a 300 percent increase,” Brash said. This means the average electric bill will go up about $10 or more per month. But there is some-

thing Ohioans can do to reduce their electric bill. They can get their community to do gas and electric government aggregation, in which their community solicits bids from energy companies on behalf of its thousands of residents. Green Township is one of some 20 communities in Southwest Ohio getting cheaper electric and gas rates for its residents through government aggregation. Some community leaders say residents can switch to providers other than Duke Energy Ohio in order to save money on their own. But as you may expect, rates offered to individuals are much higher. “The more that elected officials hear from their constituents that they are seeing people in neighboring communities who are aggregated with lower rates, that gives them a little more incentive to start the process,” Duke Energy Retail’s Brash said. So check with your community leaders to see if they’re getting you the best rates. If your community is signed up, make sure you too are getting savings. If they’re not signed up, ask why not – because we all want to save money.

R.C. Durr: Friendship, fitness and fun YMCA enjoys 10 years of service

Community Recorder

The R.C. Durr YMCA, located at 5874 Veterans Way in Burlington, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in June. Lots of activities are planned, including a free cookout for members on June 2 between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. The outdoor pool will be open for a free community swim on June 4 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. The YMCA is named

after the late longtime Boone County developer and philanthropist R.C. Durr. “Because of Mr. Durr and many others in the community who were instrumental in helping establish the Y here, we have been able to serve thousands in this community through wellness, childcare, and swimming programs,” said R.C. Durr YMCA executive director Jacob Brooks. “I look forward to offering innovative programs and services locally that strengthen youth

development, healthy living, and social responsibility,” Brooks said. Bob Noll of Villa Hills and Woody Wood of Florence joke that they “came with the building” 10 years ago. Both are longtime members of the Y. “When I joined the old Tri-City YMCA in Boone County in 1972, I was just looking for somewhere to get in shape,” said Noll. “I never imagined the wonderful impact the YMCA would have on my life. It’s not just the health benefits and the fitness opportunities, but the great peo-

ple you meet.” “I have Type 2 diabetes and the Y has really helped me get it under control,” said Wood. “I’ve met a lot of really nice people at the Y ... even Bob.” You’ll find Bob and Woody catching up on their favorite bench at the R.C. Durr most weekdays, working out in the fitness center, or sharing a cup of coffee with their YMCA friends. For more information about the R.C. Durr YMCA, call 859-5345700, or visit the website

Ash, sycamore trees are losing their leaves Question: My ash tree and sycamore tree are losing leaves, which are somewhat disfigured and have blackened areas on the leaves. What should I do? Answer: Recent rains have led to a buildup of fungal spores in the air, causing anthracnose disease to occur on ash, sycamore and Mike other Klahr trees, inHORTICULTURE cluding CONCERNS dogwood, maple and oak. Anthracnose usually just attacks the leaves, but on sycamore and dogwood, it can also kill twigs and branches. Premature leaf drop commonly occurs on infected trees. Anthracnose is not fatal (except for dogwoods in some circumstances); however, severe defoliation from anthracnose year after year can seriously weaken trees. Weakened trees become more susceptible to environmental stresses and secondary pathogens. On ash trees, the buds, leaves, and sometimes twigs may become infected. In early spring, infection of buds or expanding leaves results in irregular brown blotches and distortion of leaflets. These blotches are often associated with leaf margins. Infected leaflets frequently drop from the tree leaving a carpet of leaflets on the landscape below. On sycamore, the early leaf blight stage of anthracnose causes complete death of young leaves and twigs. Twig infection can cause shoot tips to die back as much as 8 to 10 inches. Cankers may also form on major branches and limbs. Later, leaf infections cause brown, irregular dead areas along veins or leaf margins. As is common with anthracnose on

other hosts, affected leaves may drop prematurely. However, on sycamore trees, a new healthy crop of leaves may form later in the season. The control program for anthracnose involves the following: 1. Prune out infected twigs and branches; 2. Gather and destroy fallen leaves and twigs now and again in autumn; 3. Fungicide sprays are generally not warranted. However, if the tree is a dogwood, a valuable tree of another species, or if it has been attacked year after year, a fungicide spray program may be justified, especially for small trees. Three fungicide sprays should be applied in spring: at bud break, when leaves are halfexpanded, and when leaves are fully expanded. At the garden center, look for tree fungicides containing active ingredients such as Chlorothalonil, fixed copper, mancozeb, thiophanate-methyl, Bordeaux mixture, fenarimol, or propiconazole. These chemicals are protectants and therefore must be applied before infection occurs. Once symptoms develop, it is too late to apply fungicides for controlling anthracnose. Anthracnose disease on the different types of trees is caused by several different species of closely related fungi, and each fungus only attacks one type of tree, so the ash anthracnose fungi will not infect sycamore, maple or dogwood, and vice-versa. For more information on plant diseases, plant identification and care, plus updates on upcoming Extension classes, and to win free vegetable seeds for your garden, go to or contact your local County Cooperative Extension Service.

Give 1 percent, fat-free milk a chance Our friends with the federal Women, Infant and Children (WIC) program remind us about our milk choices. Switching the kind of milk you drink is one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to take control of your health and reduce your risk of heart disease. Over a lifetime, the fat savings from drinking low-fat milk could be enormous. One cup of whole Erika milk Ritcher has as much COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST arteryCOLUMNIST clogging saturated fat as one hot dog, five strips of bacon, Snickers candy bar, or fast food hamburger. By drinking fat-free milk instead of whole milk after two years of age, you would cut 400 pounds of fat from your diet. That’s over one and half million calories. So what keeps individuals from choosing low-fat milk? The perceived taste of low-fat milk prevents consumers from making the switch. In a national survey, 47 percent responded that they do not drink skim milk because they do not like the taste. Surprisingly, when consumers are present-

Florence Community Chorus salutes veterans Community Recorder

The Florence Community Chorus performed on Saturday afternoon, May 17, Armed Forces Day, at the Florence Senior Center on U.S. 42 in Florence. When the Florence Community Chorus finished singing “United We Stand: An American Medley,” World War II Navy veteran Fred Horne of Florence spontaneously handed director Don Whitis a wooden plaque that read “One Nation Under God.”

Horne, who served in both the Atlantic and Pacific during World War II, enjoyed telling chorus members about his ship, the USS Blackwood (DE-219). The ship was named after Commander James Douglas Blackwood, a medical doctor who had saved many lives during World War I and World War II. Dr. Blackwood was killed in action at the sinking of the cruiser USS Vincennes (CA-44) at the Battle of Savo Island in l942. Horne was among sev-

eral veterans who were recognized while the chorus sang the “Armed Forces Salute”: Ron Goetz of Edgewood, Ralph Bhirdo of Florence and George Briggs of Erlanger. The Florence Community Chorus will join the Florence Community Band at the city’s Memorial Day ceremony at11a.m. Monday, May 26, at the Florence Government Center on Ewing Boulevard. Other upcoming concerts by the Florence

Community Chorus are: » June 7, at 2 p.m. at Emeritus in Edgewood » June 28, at 2:30 p.m. at Colonial Gardens in Florence » July 12, at 7 p.m. at Stringtown Park on Ky. 18 in Florence » July 18, at 7 p.m. at the Sheben Library at 8899 U.S. 42 in Union The chorus practices on Thursdays from 7:30-9 p.m. at the Florence Government Center on Ewing Boulevard. Anyone who loves to sing can join the chorus.

ed with whole, 2 percent, 1 percent, and fat free milk in blind taste tests, few can taste the difference between the types of milk. More than a quarter of consumers confused whole and fat-free milk and more than a third mistook whole and 1 percent milk. The results show that the negative attitudes about low-fat milk are more in the mind of consumers, than in their taste buds. For adults drinking two to three cups of milk daily, you could lose 12 pounds in a year just by switching from 2 percent milk to skim milk. But how can you make the switch? If you drink whole milk, start by mixing half whole milk and half 2 percent milk. Gradually reduce the amount of whole milk and try drinking only 2 percent milk for a few weeks. Once becoming used to 2 percent milk, do the same by replacing 2 percent with 1 percent milk, then to skim. Rest assured that low-fat milk provides the same nutrients as whole milk without the extra saturated fat and cholesterol. It is made by taking some, or all, of the fat out of the whole milk, not by adding water. I encourage everyone to give 1 percent or fat-free milk another shot.
