Dinsmore advocate celebrates 80th By Gail Chastang

Community Recorder Contributor

An 80th birthday party was held on July 19 at Dinsmore Homestead for Christine Godsey of Burlington, an active volunteer at the homestead for 20 years. More than 100 family members and friends were on hand for the occasion. Godsey had requested that instead of gifts, friends and family make donations to the Dinsmore Homestead Foundation. A retired school teacher, Godsey was there when the home first opened to the public in the fall of 1989, and knows how the educational programs have been enhanced to benefit children in Boone County elementary schools and the general public. “It took three years and quite a few volunteers to inventory the contents of the home,” said Godsey. “I had just retired after 25 years of teaching and this inventory was an education for me because I found things I had never before seen. All the contents of the house are original to this family and span over five generations. It’s also unique because they left all their papers here, their letters, deeds and their farm records –

more than 300,000 pieces of paper which Martha Breasted, the last living relative, had artifacted into a historical museum in Tuscon, Ariz., where she lived.” Godsey said Dinsmore has always been an educational site with the first program for school children held in 1990 and the first Pioneers to the Past day camp in the summer of 1991. “This year we added a new camp called Miss Julia’s Day Camp for Young Ladies,” said Godsey. “Elementary school girls were taught Victorian dances, how to use a fan and the messages that the fan sends, and how ladies dressed back then. They also had a tea party.”

About Dinsmore Homestead

In 1839, James Dinsmore of Louisiana purchased approximately 700 acres in Boone County. When the house was completed in 1842, James, his wife and three daughters settled there, growing grapes, raising sheep and growing willows for a basketmaking business. Daughter Julia, who never married, inherited the farm in 1872 and operated it successfully for 54 years until her death in 1926 at

The cook cabin was constructed around 1840 and the Dinsmore family lived in it until the main house was completed in 1842. age 93. She was the last person to occupy the house. In 1987 the Dinsmore Homestead Foundation was formed, and a year later acquired the home, original outbuildings and furnishings, and 30 acres of land. All but three of those original buildings are still standing. The Dinsmore Homestead is a unique historic site where visitors can learn what rural life was like in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Nature enthusiasts enjoy the hiking trails developed in cooperation with the Kentucky Nature Conservancy and the Boone County Parks Department. It is a resource for students and scholars and an area where artists can sketch and paint. Those who enjoy antiques and historic interiors delight in touring the house that contains the origi-

nal accumulated belongings of five generations of the Dinsmore family. The home is open for public tours from 1-5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from April 1 through Dec. 15. “What we’re in desperate need of right now is a modern building with office space, bathrooms, exhibit space and classrooms,” says Godsey. “We also need monetary donations because we raise our own funds to keep this open. It is a public-owned, public served site, and the perfect place to teach American history. The Dinsmore family had connections with almost every U.S. president from George Washington to George H.W. Bush.” For more information, visit www.dinsmorefarm.org/ or call 859-586-6117.

Trip scandal enters judge’s race By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

The hotly contested race for Boone County judge-executive has become even more intense. Controversy involving the Kentucky Association of Counties and how it implicates Boone County entered the campaign last week. Commissioner Cathy Flaig, who is challenging Judge-Executive Gary Moore in next year’s Republican primary, is questioning a 2005 trip to Hawaii by county officials including Moore, among other allegations. A statement her campaign issued said “at the time Flaig deemed the Hawaii trip as an abuse of taxpayer funds and refused to take the trip.” Moore in an e-mail to the Recorder said four years ago he attended the National Association of Counties annual meeting July 15-17, 2005. He said Commissioners Charlie Kenner and Terri Moore and thenCounty Administrator James Par-

sons accompanied him. He said some spouses also traveled with them but at their own expense. Moore said the funds primarily used for the trip were from a fund budgeted annually, specifically for conferences, training and travel that the Fiscal Court unanimously approved for fiscal year 2006. He said he used his personal SkyMiles (frequent flyer miles by Delta Air Lines) to pay for his own airfare. He said KACo volunteered to pay for his hotel room which saved county tax dollars. “It’s interesting that Commissioner Cathy Flaig has attended many of the NACo and KACo meetings but chose to select one that she missed,” Moore said. KACo is supported by taxpayers. How officials spent money has been the subject of numerous articles in the Lexington HeraldLeader, where the newspaper found abuses. KACo is being audited by state Auditor Crit Luallen’s office. The newspaper has also reported that the Hawaii trip was fund-

ed by KACo, but KACo told the Recorder they do not possess any documentation showing it paid for Moore’s plane ticket or hotel. Moore took two other KACofunded trips, the Herald-Leader reported. The newspaper said KACo paid for Moore’s hotel in Washington, D.C., in March 2007. The newspaper reported KACo paid Moore’s hotel and flight to Kansas City in summer 2008 for a NACo trip. Moore said he attends several of the annual NACo legislative and annual conferences. He said “from time to time KACo has offered to cover some of this expense, saving the citizens of Boone County budgeted tax dollars.” Flaig said in an e-mail she has only attended NACo and KACo events that she deemed useful in serving Boone County taxpayers and ones that required only reasonable travel expenses. “While I have personally paid for some expenses, any expenses that have been paid by the county for my travel has always been for

modest accommodations,” she said, later saying she has never accepted any expensive gifts or any travel from KACo or NACo to attend an event. Moore takes issue with Flaig bringing up the Hawaii trip now. “I feel the citizens of Boone County want to select a judgeexecutive based on their record and vision for the county which is why I will make that the focus of my campaign,” he said. “Perhaps Commissioner Flaig feels compelled to launch negative attacks because she has no real vision to move Boone County forward.” Flaig said the issue surfaced because of the ongoing KACo investigation. She said she believes “that the public deserves to know who has participated in this misuse of tax dollars.” She said her “vision for Boone County is to have a county government that lives within (its) means, gives tax relief to working families, respects property owners’ rights and is business friendly.”

Treats and more, time for Boone fair By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

As summer continues, it’s time for rides, tasty treats and 4-H livestock competitions. Boone County’s week of such revelry is almost here. The Boone County 4-H & Utopia Fair is Saturday, Aug. 1, and continues Monday, Aug. 3, through Saturday, Aug. 8 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Burlington. The fair’s first day includes something new this year.

A free fishing derby for youth ages 15 and younger is 2:30-4:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, at the lake in front of the fairgrounds. John Walton, president of the fair board, said the lake will be stocked and it will be a catch-and-release event. He said there will be prizes and it’s planned that all participants will get something to remember their trip. “Well ... due to the economy situation, we’re hoping that people realize that the fair is a family-oriented entertainment area or facili-

ty and that they will still come out and participate in the fair as they have in the past,” he said. Walton said with the weather cooperating officials are anticipating the normal crowd. He said the fair for the week usually gets 25,000 to 30,000 people. Admission is $8 per person and includes rides. There are no rides on Saturday, Aug. 1. For more information about the fair, please see a special section in the July 30 Recorder.

N. Ky. leads way in green building “Green” is not just a buzz word in the residential building industry. The Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky is working diligently to educate its members about the many ways in which builders can implement whole house green technology into their existing building approach. HBANKY is a local partner with the state’s Green Build Kentucky Program. The Green Build Kentucky Program operates through

local Home Builders Associations in Kentucky under the guidance of the Home Builders Association of Kentucky. The program originally launched in April 2008; however, it has only recently gained momentum since the National Green Building Standard was approved. In December 2008 the National Association of Home Builders and the International Code Council announced the unveiling of the American National

Standards Institute approved National Green Building Standard, which is the first and only approved rating system for green home building. The standard defines what green practices can be incorporated into residential development and construction on a national scale and how home owners can operate and maintain their green homes.

Home sales fall

In Northern Kentucky, home sale activity continued to slide – falling 7.2 percent with 491 sales over June of 2008, data from the Northern Kentucky Association of Realtors showed.

Duke hosts carbon project open house By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Duke Energy plans to host a demonstration and open house 67:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1, about the carbon sequestration project that is taking place at its East Bend Station in southwestern Boone County. Duke has volunteered to participate in a field test for permanently storing carbon dioxide deep under the East Bend Station, Duke

spokeswoman Johnna Reeder said in an e-mail. The test is one of several being conducted in the Midwest by the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership. Columbus, Ohio-based Battelle, a nonprofit research institute, leads the partnership. Reeder said the test is one of more than 20 such tests that are being conducted nationwide under the U.S. Department of Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership Program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although the field test at East

Bend is (a) very small-scale test, it represents an important step in building our knowledge and helping future generations to address climate change,â&#x20AC;? she said. The project started in autumn 2006. That fall, MRCSP did a seismic survey that lasted about two weeks, according to Reeder. It is like an ultrasound. She said much of the work took place on the East Bend property and along roads within a 5-mile radius of the East Bend Station. Reeder said beginning in Sep-

tember, a very small amount of carbon dioxide â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about two or three tanker trucks per day over the course of a few months â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be injected into the ground. She said before being injected, the carbon dioxide is compressed to a liquid-like state. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injected through a well into rock formations that are filled with salty water where it will remain trapped much like oil and gas deposits are trapped for millions of years, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Injection will occur at a depth of 3,000 to 3,500 feet, far below

drinking water sources which are at a depth of less than 100 feet in this region,â&#x20AC;? she said. For more information, questions or if residents want to be put on a mailing list, contact Brian Weisker, East Bend Station manager, at brian.weisker@duke-energy.com or call (513) 467-4646. Questions and comments can also be sent to Lynn Brickett at the U.S. Department of Energy, brickett@netl.doe.gov or Neeraj Gupta at gupta@battelle.org.

Steve Smith, a former Boone County Republican Party chairman and ally of Judge-Executive Gary Moore, is running for Commissioner Cathy Flaigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat on the Boone County Fiscal Court in 2010. Smith said several people that he could support started bowing out of running. He said Moore was one of many that encouraged him to run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see in subsequent press releases (is) that I have very wide support amongst the Boone County Republican Party,

executive committee and elected officials,â&#x20AC;? he said. In a statement, he said his Smith expertise in technology will be valuable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to continue the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition of delivering high-quality services to residents while at the same time keeping taxes low. Advanced technology will help us deliver those services efficiently and cost-effectively,â&#x20AC;? he said in the statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also like to continue the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focused efforts on economic development and job growth. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had great success in the past attracting businesses to Boone County. Now more than ever, we need to build on that success.â&#x20AC;?

Boone ended year with surplus By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Boone County finished fiscal year 2009 with a $1.2 million surplus in its general fund, despite the sluggish economy and some revenue being down. The county spent $34.5 million in fiscal year 2009. That’s 5.6 percent or $2.05 million less than what was budgeted. Overall, the county’s general fund reserve is $4.7 million. Reducing full-time personnel, less spending on

salary increases, equipment replacement and facility maintenance represent a few of these examples.” Overall, the county’s general fund operating revenue was $40.4 million, 3 percent less than predicted. However, total revenue for fiscal year 2009 was 1.7 percent more than fiscal year 2008. Examples of revenue for fiscal year 2009 that were lower than projections are motor vehicle tax and deed transfer tax. Income from payroll taxes was more than

operations (such as training, overtime and fuel), buying limited equipment and related efforts were largely responsible for the lower expenses, said a memo sent to county officials by Boone County Administrator Jeff Earlywine and Treasurer Lisa Buerkley. The memo cautions that “while many of the reductions have been incorporated into our operational program for (fiscal year) 2010, there are some decisions that cannot be deferred year after year. Expenditures such as

the forecast, according to the memo. Judge-Executive Gary Moore said by adding that $1.2 million to the reserve that puts the county back at the 10 percent level (reserves should be 10 percent of the county’s general fund expenses). “Boone has the recommended level of 10 percent. Therefore, we’re not ... sticking money away into reserve accounts at an unprecedented level but we are at the recommended level,” he said.

Brown running for Boone clerk By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Former Boone County Republican Party chairman Kenny Brown is again running for Boone County clerk in 2010. Brown ran four years ago but lost in the Republican primary to Ed Moore, another former chairman of the Boone GOP. Moore withdrew less than a month before the general election that year because of lying about serving in Vietnam.

Democrat Rena Ping won the election, succeeding Democrat Marilyn Rouse who decided not to run for a third term. “I will consider it an honor to have the opportunity to serve Boone County as county clerk and I will utilize my business, technology and public service experience to provide an efficient, secure and customer friendly clerk’s office,” Brown said in a statement. Brown, 44, Florence, has

been active in politics in addition to being a former Boone County Republican Party chairman. He is currently on the party’s executive committee. He is a former chairman of Citizens for Lower Taxes, a group he cofounded. The organization was opposed to last year’s park tax ballot question that voters rejected. Brown grew up in Union, graduated from Boone County High School in 1983 and played football at

ed

the University of Kentucky. He is employed by North Amer- Brown ican Bioproducts Corp. as a regional sales manager. “After knowing and working with Kenny Brown for nearly two decades I cannot think of a more uniquely qualified candidate,” state Sen. John Schickel, R-Union, said in a statement.

ty Hospital. No suspects have been named, and police previously said Moore is not a suspect. During the homicide investigation, police say, they uncovered evidence he attempted to obtain prescription drugs several times from several different doctors. He was indicted on the charges and an arrest warrant was issued July 7, the day of his arrest. In court on July 22, his defense attorney, Steve Martin, asked Boone Circuit Judge Anthony Frohlich to reduce the bond, which he called “a homicide bond.” “I think that’s a little high for attempting to obtain prescription drugs at a hospital,” he said. “…This charge we’re here on today – I question the timing and

significance of it.” But Commonwealth’s Attorney Linda Tally Smith opposes lowering the bond because Moore is charged with nine felonies and has a felony drug record. Frohlich said he would take the issue under consideration. Smith requested an evidentiary hearing if he decides to review the bond. “I’m absolutely confident the proof will demonstrate he’s a significant flight risk and he’s at a significant risk of re-offending,” she said. “I think the evidence will completely bear that out.” Martin also accused the Boone County Sheriff’s Department of denying Moore access to an attorney the day he was arrested, a charge the department denies. Sheriff’s spokesman Tom

Scheben said investigators notified Martin the morning of July 7 that they planned to serve Moore with a search warrant at his parents’ home, where he lived upon his release from the hospital. Scheben said the warrant was to photograph Moore’s injuries from the shooting. Investigators also hoped he would show them the crime scene and describe what he saw the night of the shooting. He was the sole witness, and he has previously cooperated with the investigation. Scheben said Martin became “belligerent” and said his client wouldn’t submit to the search warrant. The investigators instead served Moore with an arrest warrant and took him to the

sheriff’s department for the photographs, Scheben said. Martin said that’s when police kept him from seeing Moore while they questioned him about the shooting. “I was never allowed to talk to my client for two and a half hours,” he told the judge. “I was never allowed to advise my client of his rights.” But Scheben said investigators only photographed the wounds and did not question Moore without an attorney. “Why would we jeopardize our case like that?” he said. “It’s too important a case to allow that to happen.” Moore remains at the Boone County jail in lieu of $40,000 cash bond.

Wal-Mart hosts CASA fundraiser Moore mentions combining 911

In Boone County, at least 17 abused or neglected children are on a waiting list for a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA, volunteer. A total of 185 children are now being served in Boone County by CASA volunteers. The organization needs the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help.

Boone County CASA board member State Rep. Addia Wuchner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a person to be the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice to the court, we run the risk of losing children in the system. CASA volunteers not only prevent children from being lost, but ensure that their voices are heard,â&#x20AC;? Wuchner said. Gov. Steve Beshear is proclaiming Aug. 6 CASA Awareness Day in Kentucky. Last year, CASA volunteers advocated for more than 2,000 Kentucky children. During the past two

years, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family and juvenile courts have seen a dramatic increase in abuse, neglect and dependency cases. The total children before the courts is approximately 17,000, and consequently, there are increased requests from the courts for CASA workers. Many of those requests went unanswered due to a lack of available volunteers.

By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Could there be one 911 dispatching service someday in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties? Boone County JudgeExecutive Gary Moore floated such an idea July 21 during the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s State of Northern Kentucky Address at Receptions in Erlanger. After the forum, Moore said Kenton County is talking about merging dispatch units in the county and that probably needs to happen before officials can talk about how the three counties might work together. He said now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just discussion and there are not active meetings taking place. Moore said there could conceivably be two or even three facilities but one management team and one revenue source. He noted the buying power that would be generated by having single purchasing of hardware/software. Kenton County and the city of Erlanger are discussing combining their dispatching services. Covington still has its own and is not part of the discussions. Boone and Campbell counties each have one dispatching service. During the program, Kenton County Judge-Executive Ralph Drees said he agreed with having one dispatch for the three-county area.

In other discussions at the forum, Moore, Drees, Campbell County JudgeExecutive Steve Pendery and Gallatin County JudgeExecutive Kenny French talked about projects in their communities. Pendery said excavation is going to begin in August on the U.S. 27 project in the southern part of Campbell County. He said the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new administration building in Newport will open in October. He said two mixed-used developments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Manhattan Harbour along Daytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riverfront and Ovation in Newport â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are each expected to build out over a $1 billion of assessed value. He said the entire assessed valuation of Campbell County is a little more than $5 billion. Drees said Kenton County just finished a $1.2 million addition to its animal shelter. He said Kenton County needs a new administration building in probably four or five years. Moore said in Boone County capital projects are basically on hold (major building projects or infrastructure improvements) unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a federal or state grant where the county has to come up with only a 20 percent match. French said Gallatin County has about $7.5 million worth of sewer work that is planned and is in various stages of contracts being prepared to be let.

Zimmer Motors Sheriff offers citizens academy moving on after losing franchise By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

A month and a half after losing its Chrysler franchise, Zimmer Motors is seeing some successes but still feeling the market out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has not been easy,â&#x20AC;? said General Manager John Zimmer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get a handle on things.â&#x20AC;? Zimmer lost its franchise June 9 after a bankruptcy court demanded Chrysler get rid of some of its dealerships. Since then, Zimmer transitioned to selling used cars and doing repair and body work. Since June 9, Zimmer has lost eight of its 64 employees, either through layoffs or attrition. Despite this being what Zimmer calls the worst situation the 80-year-old dealership has ever faced, the company continues on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You fight â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no matter what your chance is,â&#x20AC;? he said. Support from the community has poured in, and most agree that Zimmer Motors got a raw deal, Zimmer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we go to Kroger with our Zimmer shirt on, people stop us and ask us how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? he said. Changing to a used car business model in the middle of a recession has been challenging, but so far things are looking up, Zimmer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been happy with our volume and pleased with our ability to stay competitive,â&#x20AC;? he said. Zimmer credits their early success to customers that have been there for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The loyalty of our customers has been the reason we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t closed the doors,â&#x20AC;? he said. As the dealership adjusts, some hope of going back to the way it was is coming from Washington, D.C. The Automobile Dealer Economic Rights Restoration Act is making its way through Congress. The act could require Chrysler and GM to reinstate the up to 3,300 dealerships whose franchises have or will be revoked as part of the com-

paniesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bankruptcies. Zimmer isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if the act will ever be approved, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glad to see that both GM and Chrysler have begun looking for an alternative solution that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The heat is on GM and Chrysler,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. In recent weeks, Chrysler finally responded to Zimmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for how to refranchise, though no system is in place to do so yet. In the meantime, Zimmer has begun to investigate looking at other car brands to start a franchise and sell new, but the process will take time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remake a business in three or four weeks,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. Zimmer trusts that whatever brand the dealership sells will be successful because his company has earned the loyalty of the community, and they will keep coming back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I speak for all the Zimmers and all the employees to thank the community,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said.

Massey running for national post By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

A school board member may step up to the national stage. Boone County Schools Board of Education Member Ed Massey has gotten the green light to run for secretary treasurer of the National School Board Association (NSBA). If he gets the position, he’ll serve as “the face of the association” and advocate for public schools, Massey said. In addition, Massey would become the NSBA president in two

years after a term as secretary treasurer and a term as president-elect. If elected, Massey would be the first officer of the NSBA Massey from Kentucky. “I think it’s time for Kentucky to have a seat at the table,” Massey said. So far, Massey has resolutions of support from Boone County Schools and the boards of direc-

tors of both the Kentucky School Board Association, where he is immediate past president, and the nine-state central region of the NSBA. “To go in with that kind of momentum is very satisfying,” Massey said. If Massey were elected, Boone County would likely jump into the national spotlight, said Boone County Schools Board Chair Karen Byrd. “It would bring such benefit, not only for the district, but the entire state,” Byrd said.

Massey has always been passionate about public schools, and this position would be a larger platform for pleading the case for schools, said Boone County Schools Superintendent Randy Poe. “He’s not pursuing it for himself; he’s pursuing it for the children of Boone County,” Poe said. By rule, Massey would retain his position on the Boone County School Board if elected. “You’ve got to remember where you came from,” Massey said.

Competition has already popped up as the Pacific region of the NSBA has put forth a candidate. The final decision will be made in April 2010. To support Massey, he can be e-mailed at massey@fuse.net or letters can be written directly to the NSBA. “Not everyone will agree with what I do or what I’ve done, but no one can deny my love for public schools,” Massey said.

Businessmen help local student By Emily Teaford eteaford@nky.com

A local group is extending its reach from helping local businesses to high school students. The Boone County Businessmen’s Association awarded one Boone County high school student a $500 scholarship. To be eligible, the student had to be accepted at Thomas More College, declare a major in communications, and provide a list of accomplishments and community involvement. H.B. Deatherage, chairman for

BCBA, said the group wanted to help the youth. “Boone County Businessmen wanted to do more for the community,” Deatherage said. “We put this scholarship together and it’s the first we’ve ever done.” Ted Bushelman, a director-atlarge for BCBA, was the co-sponsor for the scholarship. Bushelman donated half of the money. “I wish someone had helped me when I was going to school,” Bushelman said. “When Boone County Businessmen said they wanted to do a scholarship I want-

ed to be involved.” The first recipient of the scholarship was Jacqueline Webb. Webb graduated from Walton High School. She played bassoon and flute in the high school band and was a member of the soccer team. Webb said she has always been interested in the media and was honored to receive the scholarship. Deatherage said the BCBA hopes to co-sponsor another scholarship next year.

Boone County Schools looks to add a very large bus stop. The district is finalizing plans for a new bus garage on the Stephens Elementary property. The new garage will allow most of the district’s buses to be parked in one location and provide a centralized location for maintenance and repair. “It’s been talked about doing a bus garage for 20-something years, and we’re finally doing it,” said Superintendent Randy Poe. Building plans call for a garage with 10 bays and an office and storage space, said Ehmet Hayes, the project’s architect. Of the 10 garage bays, four are alternate bids. An alternate bid is a part of the project that’s not set in stone and will be considered based on the cost of the project. To figure out the design, Hayes visited a tractor-trailer dealer for ideas. He left with the idea of pairing garage bays so buses would be

face-to-face with the garage doors on the end. This would allow mechanics to keep their tools in the middle to work more efficiently on two buses and a tow truck could drive through the garage bays when dropping off a bus. “It’s a very serviceable, not flashy building by any means,” Hayes said. The district also looked to Fayette County Public Schools to see how they handled bus storage. Fayette County has 30,000 students, the number of students Boone County is projected to grow into in 25 years. “This will allow us to support that many students,” Poe said. The district is hurrying plans along with the $3.5 million project in order to capitalize on the lower bids construction companies are offering as a result of the recession, Hayes said. “We’re seeing some great bids,” he said. The district expect to accept a bid in September and have the garage fully functional by next summer.

College hosts Discovery Day

High school students and their families are invited to “discover” the College of Mount St. Joseph at the Discovery Day on Wednesday, Aug. 12, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., in the College Theatre. Discovery Day is a free event that offers high school students the opportunity to tour the campus, attend a mock class, learn about financial aid, have lunch with faculty and students, and receive information on the many services the Mount offers its students, such as

the Learning Center and the Career and Experiential Education Center. For more information or to register for the event, call the Office of Admission at (513) 244-4531 or 1-800-654-9314, ext. 4531, or register online at www.msj.edu/discovery-day. The Mount is located at the corner of Delhi and Neeb roads in Delhi Township. Directions to the Mount can be viewed online at www.msj.edu/directions. Free parking is available on campus.

State receives $651 million in recovery funds Kentucky will receive $651 million as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s State Fiscal Stabilization Fund program, Gov. Steve Beshear announced July 27. The new, one-time appropriation is part of approximately $48.6 billion the U.S. Department of Education has awarded to governors to help stabilize state and local budgets and help school districts and postsecondary institutions avoid severe budget cuts and retain teachers and other staff. Beshear and the Office of the State Budget Director submitted Kentucky’s application in June. Approval of the application was received July 27 from the U.S. Department of Education. “We are pleased with the approval of Kentucky’s application for these much-needed funds,” Beshear said. “It’s important to understand that these are not extra dollars, but dollars we relied on to keep SEEK funding and

higher education funding whole as part of the 2010 Fiscal Year budget.” Beshear’s plan to fill an estimated $1 billion hole in this fiscal year’s budget protected critical priorities including the basic P-12 classroom funding formula known as SEEK as well as higher education. To accomplish this goal, 55 percent of the SFSF dollars ($358 million) will be used to fill the gap between the amount of state funds appropriated for SEEK and the amount needed to guarantee the $3,866 base per-pupil funding. That leaves $293 million in state stabilization funds for the 2011 Fiscal Year budget. Many states used state stabilization dollars to balance Fiscal Year 2009 budgets. Kentucky did not, leaving funding to help address budget challenges in 2010 and 2011. Kentucky’s public K-12 school districts and postsecondary institutions will receive SFSF funds in combination with General Fund

appropriations. Funds are being provided to states in exchange for a commitment to advance essential education reforms to benefit students from preschool through postsecondary education. In the application for initial funding, Beshear indicated that Kentucky will abide by the four major criteria for SFSF monies, which include taking action to: • Make improvements in teacher effectiveness and in the equitable distribution of qualified teachers for all students, particularly students who are most in need; • Establish pre-K-to-collegeand-career data systems that track progress and foster continuous improvement; • Make progress toward rigorous college- and career-ready standards and high-quality assessments that are valid and reliable for all students, including limited English proficient students and students with disabilities; and

• Provide targeted, intensive support and effective interventions for the lowest-performing schools In addition to supporting the prescribed school improvement and reform strategies, funds may be used to pay salaries to avoid teacher and other staff lay-offs. The SFSF program may also help support the modernization, renovation and repair of school and college facilities, particularly facilities for early childhood education and for the community and should create “green” buildings. School districts will access their SFSF through an application process that will be managed by the Kentucky Department of Education. Funds will be made available in two phases. Phase I state applications were due by July 1, and upon approval, a portion of the funds can be made available. The balance of the funds will be made available to states with approval

of Phase II applications which will be due in September. Eighty-two percent of Kentucky’s SFSF allocation is dedicated to education, while 18 percent of the funds will be distributed to other essential government services. SFSF is a key element of the ARRA and is guided by the principles of ARRA. The overall goals of the ARRA are to stimulate the economy in the short term and invest in education and other essential public services to ensure the long-term economic health of the nation. Four principles guide the distribution and use of ARRA funds: • spend funds quickly to save and create jobs • improve student achievement through school improvement and reform • ensure transparency, reporting and accountability • invest one-time ARRA funds thoughtfully to minimize the “funding cliff”

When choosing a child care center, are you reaching for the stars? Stars for Kids Now is a voluntary quality rating system for licensed and certified child care programs. Regulated child care programs are given a 1 to 4 Star rating based on measurable quality indicators beyond the Kentucky state minimum. The Children Inc. Early Learning Center at Walton Verona Elementary was recently awarded a 3 Star rating, recognizing a dedication to excellence and a true devotion to the well being of children by the credentialed experienced staff of the center. This center provides an excellent learning environment as well as quality early education and care. “We're actually the only program with a 3 Star rating in Walton Verona” said director Rene Bricking. “We will also be applying for our national accreditation

through the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs in the fall.” Star ratings are based on factors associated with good outcomes for young children such as staff to child ratios, program curriculum, and staff education and training. Research has established that children who are cared for in safe, stable and nurturing environments tend to develop effective social skills and are more likely to be prepared for elementary school. Part of the success of the Children Inc. Early Learning Center at Walton Verona Elementary is the effective partnership with the families and School District. This center has been operating for one school year and has already received many referrals and support from the community. Children Inc. strives for the highest possible quality.

Boone County All-Stars win state baseball title

The Boone County 8U KABA Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth All Star team won the state championship at the Cal Ripken 8U Eastern Kentucky State baseball tournament July 17-19 at Fern Creek Park in Louisville. The tournament featured 17 of the top teams from Louisville, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky. The Boone County team, managed by Steve Wagner, played six games in three days outscoring the opposition 84-22. Boone County would get off to a slow start in the first of two seeding games, suffering a close loss in their opener, falling to the East Louisville Sluggers by a score of 6-5. Boone County bounced back to win the second seeding game against the Jeffersontown Gold All Stars, 34-4. Boone earned a five seed in the single elimination portion of the tournament. In the first round Boone County beat the Mt. Washington All Stars 14-4 and in the second game Boone County beat the host Fern Creek All Stars 12-4. The semifinals matched Boone County again with the East Louisville Sluggers. Boone County came into the game focused and eliminated the Sluggers from the tournament by the final score of 14-2. The game was highlighted by a 10-run second inning. The championship game opponent would be a strong team from Prairie Village in Louisville. With Boone County leading 3-2 after three innings, a two-hour rain delay only added to the anticipation and excitement. Once play resumed, Boone limited the Prairie Village All Stars to only one base runner over the final three innings while adding two runs themselves and cruised to the 5-2 victory. After the game, Wagner received a buzz haircut from his players and coaches.

The Boone County 8U KABA Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth All Star team won the state championship at the Cal Ripken 8U Eastern Kentucky State baseball tournament July 17-19 at Fern Creek Park in Louisville. The tournament featured 17 of the top teams from Louisville, Northern Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky. The Boone County team, managed by Steve Wagner, played six games in three days, outscoring the opposition 84-22. Front row, from left: Ryan Clements, Andrew Gibson, Dylan Doverspike, Nate Bowman, and Sean McIntyre. Midlle row: Tyler Wagner, Luke Rader, Blaine Walters, Bryson Jones, and Noah Litke. Back row: Coach Andy Rader, Manager Steve Wagner, Coach Steve Litke. “Reflecting back over the tournament, every player made a major contribution to our success. I can honestly say this has been my best experience since I began coaching 4 years ago,” said Wagner. According to Jeff Keener, president of the Kentucky Amateur Baseball Association, the 8U Boone All Stars have the distinction of earning the first Cal Ripken State Title for District VI. In doing so, they also earned the first state championship ever for a Kentucky Amateur Baseball Association team. District VI is made up of Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Gallatin, Grant, Kenton, Pendleton, Owen and Trimble Counties. Local teams participate in regu-

lar season play which is followed by a District Tournament where county based all star teams compete to determine the District representative to the state tournament. The team also had a first-place finish at the Elites of Louisville tournament, a first-place finish at Kentucky Cal Ripken District 6 tournament and a third-place finish in the Firecracker Classic. Team members: Nate Bowman, Ryan Clements, Dylan Doverspike, Andrew Gibson, Bryson Jones, Noah Litke, Sean McIntyre, Luke Rader, Tyler Wagner, and Blaine Walters. Manager: Steve Wagner. Coaches: Andy Rader, Steve Litke.

Submitted by head coach Terry Trame The Cooper men’s golf team returns their five top players from last year’s team. Sophomores Adam Millson (43.6) and Austin Molen (44.2) and Juniors Bradley Jury (45.2), Ryan Thompson (45.4) and Brandon Houston (46.8) look to improve on their nine-hole averages during match play. Adam Millson is a very solid player with a good head on his shoulders who is coming into his own. He won the Junior Amateur Tournament over the summer. Austin Molen was the most improved player from last year and is developing into a fine player who played all summer long in the 7-Up Tour. Bradley Jury will benefit from last year’s experience and growth and continues to improve on the mental aspect of his golf game. Ryan Thompson is a pure athlete (golf, basketball and baseball). He’s a raw talent who can shoot low numbers when he is on. Brandon Houston works hard and is improving and should continue to grind out low scores this year. Collin Smith is a very long hit-

ter with a nice short game. He could make a significant impact on the team this year as he matures and plays in competitive matches. The roster is rounded out by freshmen Sammy Johnson and Cody Rose as well as eighthgraders Chase Thompson (Ryan’s brother) and Stephen Weymeyer. These four players show a lot of potential at an early age and they should get to play in some matches and help improve the team now and in the future. The returning players love to play golf and they enjoy being around each other. They know the proper etiquette of the game and continued to grow and learn from their first year together at Cooper High School that produced a winning record at 9-7. They all expect to shoot their best round every time they step onto a course. Their desire to improve and put the time into the game is going to be a treat for me to watch this year. If they all continue to work together and indoctrinate the new players into having their strong work ethic they could be on the outside looking in for a sniff of the regional title.

Two teams alive in Knothole tourney By James Weber jweber@nky.com

The Gators’ first loss of the season gave new bite to their offense. Their potent batting propelled the Knothole baseball team all the way to the Greater Cincinnati city tournament finals. They are one of four teams alive in Division 2 Knothole, Class D. The Gators and head coach John Schlarman entered the Class D city championships with a 20-1 record. After a first-round game July 25, the team was scheduled to play July 28. Barring weather difficulties, the championship games are Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Crosley Field Complex in Blue Ash, Ohio. The team is comprised of 9and 10-year olds from Florence and Union. “Lately, they’ve really been hitting the ball,” Schlarman said. “Pitching has been a huge thing but we’ve been outscoring opponents pretty bad lately.”

In the first game of the South regional tourney, the Gators gave up more runs (eight) than they had the entire season until then (six). That required a long run through the loser’s bracket to win the title. “Once we got that loss we regrouped,” Schlarman said. “We won six games, three of them were run-rules and the others were 7-3 or 8-3.” Schlarman has coached the team for three years, and the Gators are making their first trip this far into the city championships. “They listen, they’re willing to learn,” Schlarman said. “They pick up on things so quickly and they’re on them right away. They got it down to a science.” Players are Jacob Chisholm, Josh Puthoff, Justin Schlarman, Tyler Ollier, Brycen Kanarek, Hunter Jacobs, Benji Rollins, Seth Collins, Bradley Rice, Ben Faulkner, Sam Johnson, Ryan Principata, and Cole Overholt.

In Class A, the Rattlers are in the city finals for the first time. The 14- and 15-year olds from Florence and Union lost their firstround game and faced elimination July 28. They had a 19-2 record. The team dispatched their district rival Raiders in the championship game of the regional after the Raiders had forced a second meeting in the double-elimination tournament. That was the Rattlers’ first loss of the season after beating the Raiders twice during the season. “It’s hard to beat a team three straight times,” said head coach Greg McDowell. “We took them a little lightly and they put it to us, and the next game we really put it to them.” McDowell said pitching has been the main key for the team’s trip to the city championships, and that the Rattlers are a balanced hitting squad as well. He said most of the players have had experience with school teams in the Boone County dis-

Kings Soccer Academy sends 2 teams to regionals By Adam Kiefaber akiefaber@nky.com

In a year of being shorthanded and injuries, the U13 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soccer team at the Kings Soccer Academy was dealt another blow right before the start of its semifinal match in the 2009 Ohio South State Cup. During warm-ups, goalkeeper Samantha Shoemaker bumped into the goal post, injuring her leg. Shoemaker was rushed to the sidelines and head coach Paulette Rumpke decided that her yearlong starter in

goal couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play. That was when Bridgette Hildreth, who hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played or practiced as a goalie for her team, volunteered to fill in for Shoemaker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the turning point for us because everyone was let down and were about to shut down mentally right before the kickoff and they kept it together and came out on top,â&#x20AC;? Rumpke said. Hildreth ended up with a couple of nice saves in a 10 shutout win. The following game, Shoemaker was back in goal for the finals.

Baptist Towers Senior Living

The U13 team won that game as well, earning a spot in U.S. Youth Soccer Region II Championships in Sioux Fall, S.D. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This group worked extremely hard and have been very dedicated. I am so proud of them,â&#x20AC;? Rumpke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have put in a lot of time and a lot of hard work.â&#x20AC;? Rumpkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team lost its three games in regional, but her squad, if they stick together, will have a chance to get back to the regional next summer. U13 is the youngest age group that can qualify for the regional tournament. While Rumpkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team was making their first

up entirely of high school seniors that have been on the same club team for the past five summers. During that span, the group has participated in three regional tournaments and won the Kentucky State Cup Championship this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is a very special group. They have been together since they were 14, which is really rare in club soccer. For this group, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to a different club or getting exposure for college, it was more about sticking together as a team and accomplishing things together,â&#x20AC;? Baker said. Many of Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players are moving on to play in college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was probably one of my favorite teams that I have ever coached,â&#x20AC;? said

Baker who was been coaching for over 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are great players, but even better people and they are going to be very successful wherever they go.â&#x20AC;? Like the U13 team, Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team lost all three of its regional matches, ending its season. On a another note, the Kings Soccer Academy had a U15 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team and U17 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team finish as a finalists this year in the Kentucky State Cup Championships. The organization also had a U10 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team win the Ohio South State Cup Championship and a U12 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team finish as a finalist in that event this summer.

The Legends League, the Tristateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball summer league, wrapped up its sixth season on Thursday, July 16. It was the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth season playing at Thomas More College. The teams play a seven-week regular season schedule, followed by a single-elimination tournament. The league is split into two divisions, one featuring several current and former college players and the other open to purely recreational players. The 10 teams in the competitive division feature teams from Thomas More College, the College of Mount St. Joseph, Northern Kentucky University, Xavier University and Cincinnati State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the few womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leagues in the area,â&#x20AC;? said Legends League founder Erik Goetz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would have to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most competitive. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what attracts so many players â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the competition level.â&#x20AC;? Many former Northern Kentucky high school stars play in the league. The team led by Marquis Hanser (Notre Dame), Brittany Bass (Holy Cross), and Meghan Fletcher (Boone County) went undefeated in the regular season. Campus Book & Supply, the team featuring current Northern Kentucky University players, avenged a regular season loss to Hanserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team to knock them off in the final game of the tournament and claim the championship. Goetz is the varsity boys coach at Holy Cross High School. He had the idea to start a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer league after seeing how competitive and successful local boys leagues had

become. It is also a way for Goetz to raise some money for his program, which helps him take his team to camps in the offseason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to provide something that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there,â&#x20AC;? he said of bringing a highly competitive womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer league to the area. The competition level is similar to Cincinnatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deveroes summer league for men. Both leagues give local college teams an opportunity to play together in the summer against top competition. They both provide competition for former area high school stars who are now playing college ball in other parts of the country. Both leagues also feature several former area college and high school players, some striving for professional contracts, others just playing for fun against tough competition. Goetz says that the Legends League has not quite reached the notoriety of the

Deveroes league, which has a big local following. The Legends League does not charge admission or have a Web site. Goetz believes he found something that the Tristate area previously lacked. He plans on continuing to develop the league as it continues to attract

many of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most talented womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is hard to find a good, competitive womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer league,â&#x20AC;? said Goetz. For eight weeks each summer, that league can be found at Thomas More College.

I recently visited Braxton Dry Cleaners in Burlington. I was greeted by two pleasant young ladies. When they returned my dry cleaning to me, they handed me an envelope and indicated that it belonged to me, and was found in the pocket of one of the items I had cleaned. I opened the envelope and found a $5 bill inside. I was impressed, and a little shocked! It would have been easy for someone to keep the money they found, and to be honest, I probably wouldn’t have even realized it. The owner, Nick Bell, was at the location at the time and I let him know just how pleased I was with the honesty and integrity of his employees. We are always so quick to tell our bad news, so I wanted to make sure that I shared my positive story with everyone. Jerrie Clayton Sterling Trace Burlington

Will think twice

What do you get when you mix Wolverine football players, cheerleaders, parents, coaches and trash together? A new awareness of the problems of pollution in our communities. On Saturday, July 11, the Boone County Pee Wee Wolverine Football organization got together to raise money for their team by participating in the Trash for Cash program. They collected trash in the Oakbrook subdivision. Not only did they raise money for their team, but they also raised their awareness of the problem of pollution and human’s careless actions. One cheerleader commented, “Don’t these people care about their community to keep it clean?” The group collected more than 1,000 cigarette butts from Pleasant Valley to the Oakbrook pool. Another Wolverine asked, “I thought these were biodegradable. It doesn’t look like they are disintegrating to me.” Overall the team collected two huge garbage bags (the oversized bags big enough to hold two 9year-olds) full of trash ranging from alcoholic beverage cans, fast food bags and yard sale signs. This program will hopefully make this team and their families more concerned citizens who will think twice the next time they roll down their window to throw their Wendy’s bag out.

Is the debate over?

(An open letter to Rep. Geoff Davis:) Dear Rep. Davis, Conspicuously absent from your weekly e-Newsletters thus far is any discussion regarding the constitutionality of a governmentimposed health care program, a program that generally would benefit one segment of the American citizenry at the expense of another. You appear more concerned with efficiency, accessibility and affordability than the principles of sound governance according to the Constitution. James Madison, widely considered to be the primary author of the Constitution, once observed, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents ...” How does your advocacy of a

For the sake of sanity I would urge people to pause, think, then consider the money that you would keep if Congress does not follow Obama’s big plans on increasing federal mandates and regulations for almost every aspect of life.

CH@TROOM

On July 13, 16 volunteers helped pick up roadside trash in Verona as part of the Boone County Trash for Cash program. Parents, students and community supporters worked together to clean a 3-mile stretch of Stephenson Mill road beginning in Verona. This group was working to help raise money for the newly formed high school PTSA that will fund student programs for the upcoming school year. However, they also gained firsthand experience on the impact that careless littering can have on our community. Joshua Wakefield, an incoming freshman, noted, “There were lots of bottles and cans which were probably thrown out by people while they were driving. You can’t really see them from the road because they were all trampled under the grass.” On the other hand, some trash items weren’t so hard to find. “We found a flattened out mailbox just sitting on the side of the road,” offered WVHS community supporter Ona Garrison. Radleigh Wakefield, who will be a junior this year, summarized the day for everyone, “It felt good to help clean up my community and help the PTSA at the same time.” Tracy Wakefield Walton Verona High School PTSA President Walton

Customer service? Not so much Any company that has any interest in longevity or future earnings cares about customer service. They care about pleasing customers because happy customers return and because they talk to their friends. Unhappy customers do not talk to their friends nearly as much as happy customers. I know this because I have been talking to friends all day because for three days I have been in Customer Service Hell! Tuesday. Went with my husband to see doctor. We get to point of scheduling for next appointment, and the scheduling person could not have been ruder. (You know who you are, Nurse Ratchet!) We changed doctors. Wednesday was a “me” day, so I was lured into a false sense of complacency. But, alas, it was not to be. Thursday. Take my grandchildren to get pictures made. I drive two hours for company to call to say a/c quit working and it was 90 degrees in their building. I told them 90-degree heat was probably not conducive to a good picture outcome. I called another company, made appointment, told them what I wanted, confirm the price, all’s well. You know the drill. Price goes up to somewhere in the neighborhood of a bazillion

dollars, “I simply cannot allow my grandchildren’s 135 extra pictures to be destroyed!” Pictures won’t be ready that night, but I can pick Karen them up in two Neumeister weeks, etc. So, finally get Community back home to Recorder the peace and guest quiet of my columnist sanctuary and start doing a little online banking and what pops up, but the “me-day” reality of the mani-pedi, and, of course, the shop charged me double. So, I call and I am sure, they will immediately rectify the problem … I really shouldn’t be this naïve at this age, should I? Their response, “Prove it!” You know, at some point, you gotta love the moxie! You know I actually have a few more anecdotes from just this week. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough room in this entire newspaper for the customer service stories I could tell. Not all bad. Many are very good. I actually had a good one today. After three days of incredu-

lously bad customer service, “Zina” came over the cell phone towers to help me with an issue. She spoke in a courteous manner, asked if she could help me. She completed the task efficiently and cheerfully and then asked me if there was anything else she could do. I thanked her for doing such a good job and being pleasant and asked to speak to her supervisor. When Mr. Supervisor came on the phone, he was courteous as well. Imagine that. And, then I explained to him that my customer service issue was that I actually received some service for a change and that Zina was a quality employee. So the point to all this “rant” is that we are all more than ready to complain when we have inadequate service, but do we applaud good service? If we experience particularly good service or “over and above” effort, do we take the time to let either the employee or their manager or supervisor know that they did a good job and we appreciate it? You know like everything else, we can cure this, one “Zina” at a time. Karen Neumeister is a resident of Chatsworth Court in Walton.

Take head out of the sand I just couldn’t believe what I was reading in the July 16 article regarding “Casino funded school would bave been nice, but not needed.” You have got to be kidding! Did Deputy Superintendent Mike Ford and Board Chair Karen Byrd think only uninformed people would read that article? Take a look at the statistics of the more than a billion dollars that the Kentucky lottery generated for KEES, College Access Program, Kentucky Tuition Grants Program, Early Childhood Reading and a dozen more educational programs across this state. Byrd states, “The lottery was supposed to save educational funding, but where does that have us now?” The better question would be, “Where would we be if we didn’t have the lottery?” Her answer, more and higher taxes because unless you can make magic happen, I don’t have the slightest idea where additional revenues are going to come from. The lottery wasn’t suppose to be the complete answer, it was supposed to make an impact on the

educational funding, which it has done. Kentucky needs to legalize gambling before Cincinnati and Ohio beat us to the punch. True, its a vice, just like drinking, drugs, cigarettes and a multitude of other activities. The big difference, someone actually benefits from gambling. Our tax money continues to line the pockets of Hollywood, Belterra, Grand Victoria and all the municipalities associated with them. Not only do the educational systems of the cities which have the casinos benefit from them, but even the surrounding cities get a piece of the action. Its about time we reap some of those benefits. If Byrd is “thrilled” because “we get consideration from the state,” she’s much too easily impressed. If Ford doesn’t see that “gambling” contributes to building schools and the overall educational system directly or indirectly, he

CHATROOM Last week’s question

Are you worried about a possible worsening of the swine flu pandemic this fall and winter? Why or why not? “No. I am not worried. H1N1 should not be worse than any other strain. And they should have a vaccine soon.” J.B. “I am not worried but that doesn’t mean I won’t get the virus. I am eating more pork to build up some resistance.” G.G. “I am both concerned and worried as well we all should be. The World Health Organization is, too, and when a vaccine is finally here the United States may not have enough to go around. It will be

needs to do a lot more homework. There’s no “timetable” set for the additional school because there isn’t the financial resources. This county is behind in building schools, period. We haven’t been able to keep up with the escalating population growth because of irresponsible zoning for over 15 years. The only exception is the fact that the economy has taken a dive and it’s slowed that growth, but that’s not a very healthy means of “controlled growth.” This state needs the revenues for all areas of government, including education. A simple Internet search will surprise you and educate you at the same time. Take your heads out of the sand, do your homework, see just how much is generated for the state of Indiana, the city of Lawrencburg, and realize you’re missing the boat! Mike Cassedy is a resident of Vice Lane in Burlington.

Next question

interesting to see what happens when schools are back in session and an outbreak occurs. Everyone better get educated about the disease. I don’t see much about it in the papers. Guess they don’t want us to panic!” Duke

“Honestly, I’m not worried about a possible worsening of the swine flu this fall and winter, because worrying won’t do a darn thing to avert the crisis, if indeed it does happen, though I hope it doesn’t. “I’m more worried about the damage being done to the structures of our country, like banking, the auto industry, and health care, by an ambitious narcissist who has no idea of the long-term negative effects that his unchecked meddling will produce.” Bill B.

“No, I’m not worried about swine flu going pandemic. This issue is already being engineered as something that will happen. Fear and anxiety is being generated by officials to promote experimental, toxic, filler-laden vaccinations as the weapon of choice. CDC labs can only test 100 flu samples/day and they don’t count any death unless its own lab confirms the infection.

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

EMILY TEAFORD/ STAFF

Jerry Schaadt stands by a mosaic on the showroom floor of Florence Winteriors.

Business makes showroom interactive A business that has thrived for six years has moved to a new interactive showroom in Richwood. The new showroom has been open for three months and nearly everything is fully functional. Florence Winteriors is a business that sells home fixtures like bathtubs and kitchen faucets. Jerry Schaadt, the kitchen and bath designer, said that he designed the showroom to be innovative. “I think what sets us apart is the ability to use faucets and toilets before you put them in your home,” Schaadt said. The showroom also has a children’s play area and a flat screen LCD television with DVD compatibility. Schaadt said that he

believes Florence Winteriors has been so successful because of its focus on the customer. “We take the time to listen to our clients to find out what they want and fit that to our criteria,” Schaadt said. “Imagine building a 5,000-square-foot house with six bathrooms; we can help pick out fixtures for all six bathrooms in an hour and a half.” Florence Winteriors is owned by the company Winnelson which distributes plumbing supplies. Both are franchises under the larger company, WinWholesale, which is based out of Dayton, Ohio. Have a nominee for “Small Business Spotlight?” Send an e-mail to ndaly@nky.com.

PATRICIA A. SCHEYER/CONTRIBUTOR

Eighteen-year-old Patrick Ferrell of Burlington is planning to spend the last half of his summer at boot camp in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.

Recruit prepares to ship out By Patricia A. Scheyer Contributor

While other high school graduates are enjoying their summer vacation, 18-year-old Patrick Ferrell of Burlington is planning to spend the last half of his summer at boot camp in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. “I didn’t want to go to college right away, but I wanted some job experience, and a chance to build up some money,” Ferrell explained. “As far as job security, you can’t beat the Army. At first I looked at both the Army and the Navy, but when I walked into the Army recruiting station, I found where I wanted to be, and I never looked back.” Sgt. First Class Leonardo Olan has been the station commander for the Florence office since last October, and he recruits from seven different counties. “Enlistment is up,” he stated. “I think it is due to a few factors, one of which is the economy. When you can’t find a job, the Army looks pretty good, with the security and the benefits. Another reason is the need to serve. Many young people feel the need to serve their country, sometimes because their father or grandfather served, and they want to carry on the tradition.” But being in the Armed Forces, whatever branch is chosen, is not like

a regular job in many ways. First of all, basic training lasts for 10 weeks or more, and is usually at a base in another state. For Ferrell, that is significant, because in his chosen line of work as a combat engineer, he will be gone from his mom and dad for 14 weeks. Before this, he had not been away from home for more than four weeks. “I think I will probably be homesick,” he said, shrugging casually. “Obviously I have a little insecurity about being away from home for awhile. But I think embarking on a new career, which is also an adventure, will sort of outweigh it. I’m looking forward to it.” Sgt. Olan says he has 30 other future soldiers in his pool waiting to ship out to basic. “I tell every future soldier, you can expect a deployment,” he said. With activities in Iraq winding down, and fighting in Afganistan ratcheting up, there is a very good chance Ferrell will be going to Afganistan after basic training. It doesn’t seem to bother him much, however; his older brother John has been in Iraq since last August, and will come home this summer, so Ferrell feels that wherever the Army sends him, he will be OK. His parents support him, too. “I don’t have a problem with Patrick going,” Bob Ferrell said. “We usually let the boys make their own

For PatrickFerrell, that is significant, because in his chosen line of work as a combat engineer, he will be gone from his mom and dad for 14 weeks. decisions, and John and Peter, his older brothers, chose different paths, John going into the Army and his twin, Peter, choosing not to, but Patrick is 18, and I think he is in for a great adventure.” Ginny Ferrell, Patrick’s mother, indicated that John, her older son, had broken the ice a little. “I’m not anxious at the moment, but it will probably get to me when he leaves,” she said. “I don’t think we did anything different in raising the boys, except that they were all Eagle Scouts. We put the flag out on the Fourth of July like other families. We have kept in touch while John has been in Iraq, and we will keep in touch with Patrick. They are good sons, and we are proud of them all.”

Beverages pack on the calories There are so many beverages choices available today. You can find most everything from simple bottled water to fancy flavored coffees with whipped topping and chocolate sauce drizzled on top. What many of us forget is that some of the beverages pack quite a number of calories. But, because they are beverages we do not count them as food. However, you could be drinking as many as 700

calories with just one beverage. Take a look at the Nutrition Facts panel on your favorite bottled or canned beverage. Look at the number of servings per container and how many calories are in a serving. Do you consume the entire container? Is there more than one serving in the container? If so, you may have to multiply the number of calories per serving by the number of servings in the container to get an accurate

picture of how many calories you are consuming. If you purchase your beverage from a restaurant or retail outlet, ask for the nutrition information on the item. Some places list the nutrition information on their Web sites others have it in their stores. Consuming just an extra 100 calories more than you use or need a day will cause you to gain 10 pounds in a year. Consider the beverages

Summertime and the living is … ? I wouldn’t be surprised if Psalm 23 was written in summertime. You know how it goes, “He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he refreshes my soul.” Summer invites tranquility, feeling at one with nature, choosing some positive and relaxing times in our lives. Here are some of the lessons of summer. Slow down: “There is more to life than increasing its speed,” said Gandhi. Most of us moderns feel obsessively driven. We stay on the treadmill all year long. We fear the silence of solitude or experience a certain personal guilt if our list of expectations isn’t accomplished immediately. Contemplative monk Thomas Merton considered excessive busyness a way of doing violence to ourselves, “There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence …

Summer invites tranquility, feeling at one with nature, choosing some positive and relaxing times in our lives. and that is activism and overwork. The rush and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to violence. It destroys our own inner capacity for peace.” Summertime is freneticisms antidote. It’s the time for which hammocks and lawn chairs were made, bicycles, tree-lined walking paths, picnic baskets and the song lyrics “slow down, you move too

fast, you gotta make the morning last.” Notice: St. Benedict, the monk who founded the Benedictine Order, had a novel approach to help his novices live in the present moment – which is the only place we really live. During their novitiate he asked them to temporarily take a special vow – Fidelity To The Present Moment. It meant a deliberate, concentrated giving of attention to what is immediately before you. “Age quod agis,” in Latin, “Do what you are doing.” He wanted them to notice and feel even the mundane. If washing dishes, notice the look and feel of the swirling soapy water, the sound, the smoothness, the comforting circular motion of their hand. This vow of attention required them to let go of the tendency of trying to do multiple things at

once (no praise for multitaskers), of acting thoughtlessly, or to live in the past and worry over the future. The present moment has a fullness all its own. Take off your shoes: Literally and figuratively summer says “Take off your shoes and walk in the grass, feel the earth on which you live, take a deep breath. Life’s too short for tight shoes. Loosen up and stop frowning. Touch the earth, the trees and flowers. At least for awhile resign as General Manager of The Universe.” Many burdens we carry are not even ours to carry. Summertime says “Take that load off your shoulders and let me refresh you.” Enjoy: That’s what the table server says as he or she places our food before us, “Enjoy!” We like the invitation. God says the same thing as he spreads before us the smorgasbord of life that Genesis says he found so good.

One of my favorite prayers Father Lou in a Sunday Guntzelman Mass says: “Lord, open Perspectives our eyes to see your hand at work in the splendor of creation and in the beauty of human life. Touched by your hand, our world is holy. Help us to cherish the gifts that surround us, to share your blessings with our brothers and sisters, and to experience the joy of life in your presence.” To which I say a great, “Amen!” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Make sure debt is yours before you pay it During t h e s e tough econ o m i c t i m e s many people are faced with unpaid Howard Ain debts. In addiHey Howard! tion to bills you truly owe, you may also be hit with collection letters from companies who just hope you’ll pay.

Some of these are socalled Zombie debts, those more than seven years old that have been sold to debt collection companies. Such bills often don’t belong to you, but are sent anyway because so many years have gone by and people have moved. Nancy Beasley of Sharonville got such a bill for a debt dating back to 1994. “I went to the Web site of the bill collection company and there’s no Web site list-

ed. All I found were links to complaints,” she said. This bill collector wanted Beasley to pay more than $2,000, for a bill belonging to a company of which she never heard. “So I called the company and told them and they said they would erase the debt. I just want other people to be aware of these letters coming out,” Beasley said. Clara E. Martin of Anderson Township also got a collection letter for a debt that’s four years old. It was for an

unpaid parking lot fee. But, upon close examination she found the license number for the car listed never belonged to her. “If they had the correct license number then I would say, ‘Well, this could possibly be something legitimate.’ But it’s not,” she said. Although she wrote the bill collector and disputed the bill, it didn’t seem to make any difference. “Just recently I received another letter from them.

This letter is not different than the first one, so this is not in response to what I wrote,” Martin said. So I told Martin to send another letter to the bill collector saying she doesn’t owe the debt – and send the letter by registered mail so they have to sign for it. That way you have proof they received it. She did that and has not heard from them again. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act you need to send such a letter to

protect your rights. If you feel the debt is not yours, tell the bill collector in writing to provide proof it belongs to you. Do not admit the debt is yours unless you are sure.

Chocolate ’chips’ in to elevate zucchini bread

I’ve been picking my Italian round zucchini, my Lebanese zucchini and my regular zucchini every day. I ’ l l m a k e stuffed Rita z u c c h i n i Heikenfeld for supper onight Rita s kitchen tand if I have time, a chocolate zucchini bread. I wanted to share that recipe since it’s a little different than the norm.

Chocolate zucchini bread/cake

From an anonymous reader. I haven’t tried this yet but it looks delicious. Let me know how you like it. It’s a cross between a bread and a cake, so either name is appropriate. 11⁄2 cups shredded zucchini 1 cup flour 1 ⁄2 cup unsweetened

Salt and pepper to taste

cocoa powder, sifted 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⁄4 teaspoon allspice 1 ⁄2 cup canola oil 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 ⁄2 cup light brown sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 ⁄4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9-by-5 loaf pan. Set aside shredded zucchini. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Set aside. Beat oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until well blended and fold in zucchini. Add flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Fold in chips. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 to 65 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooling.

Topping: 1 cup bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese mixed Butter or substitute Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD

Two unusual zucchini: Lebanese and Italian round.

Mary Simon’s Catalina dip

From Rose Kutschbach – her mom’s recipe, an alltime favorite. “Mom passed away in ’95 but memories will always be there for us,” she told me. Well said! 1 pound cream cheese, softened 16 oz. Catalina salad dressing Garlic salt to taste

Mix with mixer until smooth and creamy, but thick consistency. Use vegetables, crackers, chips or pretzels for dipping.

Baked pasta and chicken

I made this for the grandkids and they (and the adults) loved it. 2 cups whole wheat or regular pastina (or any short pasta) Olive oil 2 chicken breasts, cut up – a good 3 cups or so 1 nice onion, chopped – about 11⁄2 cups 2-3 teaspoons garlic or bit more to taste 28 oz. diced tomatoes with juice 3 cups mozzarella Parsley, chopped

Cook pasta until just tender, about five minutes. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, film bottom of pan with olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for a couple of minutes. Add onions and garlic, stirring to combine, and cook until onions are soft and chicken is cooked, about five minutes. Put into bowl with pasta. Add tomatoes, mozzarella, parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Put in sprayed casserole. Sprinkle crumb mixture on top, dot with small bits of butter. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

*Water vs. Juice for kids in sports: For Bill, a Northeast Suburban Life reader,

whose kids are playing sports. Hydration is paramount. If an activity lasts less than one hour, water is fine. If it lasts 60 to 90 minutes or longer, a 6 to 8 percent carbohydrate sports drink or diluted fruit juice (to dilute juice from concentrate – and try to use 100 percent juice – use at least twice the water recommended) is good. * Information from “The Official Snack Guide for Beleaguered Sports Parents” which yours truly, along with three talented colleagues, wrote!

stayed at the fort until spring and located near the middle of Middle Creek. Two years later they moved near Waterloo and Belleview, and their descendants have been there ever since. The original homestead was architecturally called a dogtrot log dwelling. John and James were charter members of Middle Creek Baptist Church in 1803 (now known as Belleview Baptist Church). James was ordained deacon and served for more than 35 years in that position. One of James’ children was Larkin Ryle. Larkin’s son James T. was nicknamed “Big Jimmy.” That’s how we get the name “Big Jimmy Hill” for part of Beech Grove Road. Alice Ryle still lives on that property. Her daughter’s family lives there also making her grandson Ryle the sixth generation to live at this location. It’s altogether appropriate that Mrs. Ryle chose the “Short to School” block.

“Mike did more than just oversee staff and operations,” Settle said. “His ability to convene the right partners, recruit and support volunteers, and oversee implementation led to such successes as launching the first regional education summit in Northern Kentucky, developing a Master Plan for a Licking River Greenway and Trails system, and creating a catalytic development fund for the urban core.” Mike Philipps, president and CEO of the Scripps Howard Foundation and former editor of The Post, said Hammons appreciates the value of relationships, and the role of relationships in turning vision into reality. “In 30-plus years at The Post, I had the opportunity to sit across the table from a lot of local leaders … a lot of activists and community players,” Philipps said. “Some have been pretty good, some not so good. But not one of them has been more committed to bringing out the best in others and bringing out the best in a community than Mike. Or, I might add, more successful.” Hammons previously served on the Kentucky Health Policy Board and in Gov. Brereton Jones’ administration. He’s held seats on dozens of nonprofit boards. “Our region is stronger, smarter, and enjoys an improved quality of life because of Mike,” said Mark Neikirk, director of the Scripps Center for Civic Engagement/Northern Kentucky University. Leadership Northern Kentucky is honoring six Leaders of Distinction for its 30th anniversary. Hammons, Ted Bushelman, Robert Elliston, Chris Goddard, Bob Hoffer and Dale Silver will be recognized during a celebration Sept. 12. They will be inducted at the Chamber’s annual dinner Sept. 29.

Miller to lead home builders The Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky (HBA-NKY) has announced that Brian Miller has been hired as the organization’s new executive vice president. Miller, who starts his new position on Aug. 3, replaces Dan Dressman. Miller, a native of Northern Kentucky, has spent the last 12 years in Louisville where he was the vice president of communications for the Louisville HBA. He was selected after a nationwide search and brings with him a magnitude of experience and strong commu-

nity ties. His father, Jack Miller, was the past president of the Home Builders in the 1980s and president of the State Home Builders Association in the 1990s. His mother Jean was a past president of the Woman Council of the State Home Builders Association and the National Woman’s Council President. “I am very excited to serve such a long standing and vital organization such as the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky,” said Miller. “This association has an impressive

history of representing the men and women who work to help our neighbors realize the American Dream; the dream of homeownership. My focus is to help the organization set a path that leads the homebuilding, development and home and garden industry into continued success in the future.” Miller has a degree from Eastern Kentucky University and has been very involved with Salvation Army of Louisville and the Louisville Army Boys & Girls Club of Louisville.

Some trees hurt by shade decline Question : My maples and oak trees have several dead branches, and they seem to be thinning out on top. One tree already has its fall color. What could be the cause? Answer : Shade tree decline is a complex disease situation since the cause frequently cannot be traced to one single factor. Trees most commonly affected in Kentucky are Norway and sugar maples, ash and oaks

(particularly pin oaks). A wide variety of factors can be involved in shade tree decline. These include (1) compacted or poorly drained soils, poor fertility, moisture stress and change in soil level around trees; (2) late spring frost; drought; severe winters; dramatic temperature drop after a warm, wet fall, or plant variety not cold or heat tolerant; (3) fungal and bacterial diseases,

insect borers, and defoliation by insects; (4) construction, de-icing salts, trunk injury (e.g., mower damage), paving over roots, topping and improper pruning, and improper planting (i.e., too deep); and (5) lime-induced iron deficiency often associated with oak declines; and (6) girdling roots. Tree roots normally grow outward in a radius from the trunk. However, when a lat-

eral root intertwines with another main lateral root or encircles the trunk, a girdling root problem can occur. The girdling root, in effect, causes “self-strangulation” by restricting the flow of water and nutrients in the tree. This problem is more common on maples (particularly Norway, sugar and silver maples) and pines than on other species. Affected trees are gener-

Normally, by the time a tree is 10-20 Mike Klahr years old, lateral roots Community at the base Recorder of the trunk guest will flare columnist outwards at the soil surface. A girdling root restricts normal buttress flare so the tree appears to ascend

Community From B10 straight up from the ground like a telephone pole. Often, the girdling root will be at least partially exposed at the soil surface, forming a noose around the tree. In other cases, careful digging near the trunk to a depth of 6 to 12 inches may be necessary to locate the problem root. A girdling root can be caused by factors originating as far back as transplanting. When roots are cut as the trees are moved from the nursery, secondary roots become dominant and grow across the path of future trunk expansion. If container-grown plant material is root bound at transplanting, the roots may continue to spiral around within the

Roots of barerooted transplants can become twisted when placed in an improperly dug planting hole. Girdling roots may also be associated with obstacles that prevent normal outward growth of roots. For example, pavement, buildings, boulders, ledges or compacted soil can all impede root growth. As a result, lateral roots may grow back across the main root system. To minimize the likelihood of girdling root problems: (1)

avoid planting in locations where space for proper root development is limited; (2) make several vertical slits at least one inch deep in the root ball of root-bound containergrown plants before transplanting; (3) be sure the planting hole is large enough to accommodate the roots of the transplant. It is best to dig the hole larger than the size of the root ball; (4) inspect for potential girdling roots several years after transplanting, but before problems develop.

Roots near the trunks of girdling-root-prone trees such as maples can be carefully excavated and removed. Treatment for an already existing girdling root is effective only if the problem is corrected early. If a tree is allowed to decline for a number of years, its chances of recovery are slim. To remove a girdling root: (1) sever both ends of the girdling root and allow it to decay in the soil. Remove a couple of inches from the severed ends to prevent the cut ends from rejoining; and (2) fertilize the tree and prune out dead wood.

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
