Residents ask for action By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — Two residents have asked Boone County Fiscal Court to take some kind of action in the recent scrap metal scandal. Florence resident Bob Cicero and Hebron resident Terry Donoghue each read, and handed out, multi-page letters about the scandal at the court meeting Sept. 17. Former public works director Greg Sketch was suspended in July. As reported in the Kentucky Enquirer, it was later discovered he kept a secret fund for five years, established with revenue from the sale of scrap metal. Sketch retired from the public works department prior to an administrative hearing to address the allegations against him. Subsequent articles in the Kentucky Enquirer state that the total amount of scrap metal income was $32,820.66. Of that amount, $8,669.50 was reported to the county finance department and $12,898.64 was spent on turkeys for underprivileged families in Boone County Public Schools. Two other public works em-

ployees resigned in relation to the case. A Boone County grand jury declined earlier this month to vote an indictment against Sketch, who also was the county engineer, on a charge of abuse of public trust. Donoghue told commissioners he was expressing his personal objection to actions allowing Sketch and others to “retire or resign from county service to avoid facing administrative or criminal charges.” He urged the fiscal court to “seek the guidance of the attorney general without delay.” “Regardless of whether the attorney general determines there is insufficient evidence to secure a felony conviction or the county attorney chooses not to see misdemeanor charges, I respectfully request the Boone County Fiscal Court notify the Kentucky Retirement Systems of the circumstances surrounding Mr. Sketch’s decision to leave public office and take a formal vote to terminate his employment and that of others involved, with prejudice,” the letter reads. “In this instance, it appears these individuals would be eligiSee ACTION, Page A2

Boone schools OK’s ‘lean’ budget By Melissa Stewart

Boone County Schools 20132014 fiscal year budget is “one of the leanest in the state,” according to Kathy Reutman Bryant, executive director of student and community services. Total revenues for this fiscal year include $175,447,399 which will cover this year’s expenditures. “Although the staffing levels are shown to be lower than other districts, the personnel costs are at 87 percent of the general operating fund. That doesn’t leave much for other necessary expenses,” she said. This year, however, the district has budgeted for the re-

placement of about 20 of the oldest buses in the fleet. Replacement was put on hold last year, due to the uncertainly of Massey the budget. Currently, the district’s fleet has at least 35 buses that are more than 15 years old. As state and federal funding continue to dwindle, Boone schools have turned to a property tax increase for assistance. This year’s rate was set at 62.2 cents per $100 for real property and personal property, a 4 percent increase over last See BUDGET, Page A2

Schools not wired to fullest By Melissa Stewart

Boone County Schools are struggling to get wireless capabilities in all classrooms throughout the district. According to Karen Cheser, deputy superintendent and chief academic officer, the district is $600,000 behind in providing what she said is “essential to 21st century learning.” Currently all the middle schools and eight elementary schoolsarewithoutfullwireless capabilities. There is wireless access in the buildings, just not in every classroom, said Boone Schools Director of Technology Mary Ann Rankin. All the high schools and some elementary schools do have full access. “Many of these buildings that don’t have access points in the classrooms were earlier adopters of wireless,” Rankin said. “At that time, hotspots were the standard.

standard is an access device in every room.” However, she pointed out that some of the buildings need an upgrade in infrastructure to support the needed hardware to supply wireless access in each classroom. Still, that is the goal, Cheser said. “We want to move to a more blended learning where students can access more technological resources,” she said. District staff would like to reach a point where students bring their personal devices to use in class. For those who can’t afford their own, the district is working on raising funds to provide those devices. Students can use their devices to access virtual classes, textbooks, and other online resources. “Before we can do all of this, we have to have full wireless capabilities,” Cheser said. She said the district’s budget committee is looking to make

the most of the financial resources available to provide funds for this project. The Boone County Education Foundation is looking for donations and raising funds to give complete wireless access to all schools. The goal, Cheser said, is to get all the middle schools full wireless access by next summer and then concentrate on the elementary schools. “At the latest, three years from now all of our schools will be ready,” Cheser said. “But the funding picture is dire and we are low, low on funds.” When and if this goal is reached in three years, she said there’s still the issue of students not having wireless access in their own home. She said the district plans to work with the Boone County Fiscal Court and the Florence City Council to look at how to expand wireless capabilities to See WIRED, Page A2 Vol. 10 No. 39 © 2013 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

board for 17 years. “In all of my years I have not witnessed this type of support in a community on behalf of their local public schools. It is a testament to the commitment to education in our county.” Massey said unfunded mandates of the federal government and the state legislature have left educators in a “precarious position.” “I think our budget is as tight and lean as it possibly can be,” Massey said. “There isn’t any fluff in our budget, there’s very little wiggle room.

We’ve moved things around to accommodate our teachers and our programs. “We work closely with the Education Association and have utilized every dollar we can to provide the same quality of education for our students.” According to Massey, Boone schools are at the bottom 10 percent when it comes to funding per pupil, however in the top 10 percent when it comes to academic performance. Bryant said the school district’s foremost challenge is budgeting for salaries and wages in order

to “maintain the workforce necessary to continue providing exceptional service to our students.” “Another significant challenge is finding resources to fund initiatives that advance or improve the learning environment such as the most appropriate technology, professional development, and instructional resources including textbooks.” Beyond maximizing the level of funding from local sources such as tax revenues, she said they are looking into applying for grants.

jar.’” Judge-executive Gary Moore said there several items “that I know on the surface I strongly disagree with,” but added that Donoghue also made some “great points and we’ll look into them.” County attorney Robert Neace said indications in the correspondence that criminal action was not contemplated “was completely and totally inaccurate.” “The grand jury did meet. The grand jury did consider all of these issues,” Neace said. “Whether you agree with it or not, the grand jury has made their decision.” Neace did say he was

“glad” Donoghue agreed the funds should be recovered and said he will take “whatever action is appropriate to collect on those funds.” Cicero told the court of instances in the past few months in which Northern Kentucky “has been shocked with the financial scandals involving public officials that have abused the trust of their constituents.” “In the Boone County Public Works Department illegal slush fund case sanctioned by the county engineer, there was no arrest, no conviction, no jail time, not even an indictment,” he said. Cicero said that some of the funds were used “for a charitable cause, which in this convoluted, politically correct world would almost guarantee absolution.” No matter the intentions, it’s still theft, he said. “It doesn’t matter how how good my intentions might be, we don’t live in Sherwood Forest and

none of us can claim to be Robin Hood,” he said. “In our society, it is still a crime to steal from one to give to another, no matter how destitute the recipients might be or how righteous the cause.” He requested the fiscal court appoint an independent counsel to determine the viability of filing a civil proceeding against those responsible. The grand jury decided not to prosecute those involved and “there’s nothing the fiscal court can do about (that), but obviously as officials of the Boone County Fiscal Court, you have the responsibility to safeguard the public funds,” Cicero said. “At this point, nothing was done through criminal prosecution, so I believe the fiscal court should pursue civil action against those individuals involved and that was my point.” Moore replied the county attorney already stated he is “moving forward with pursuing restitution.”

Divinity Group offers classes for seniors By Stephanie Salmons

County company is helping make sense of Medicare and other topics important to seniors. Florence-based Divinity Group, a family of financial and estate planning services, and Chickfil-A are partnering to provide “Coffee and Class” free educational classes for seniors. “Medicare and You” kicks the series off 8:309:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. Medicare’s annual enrollment period, or AEP, begins Oct. 15, Divinity’s senior specialist Kari Holland, of Union, said. The class goes over Medicare basics and some of the seniors’ basic options. Discussion then turns to online legal documents Thursday, Oct. 10; health care needs beyond Medicare Thursday, Oct. 24; and longterm care and Medicaid planning Thursday, Nov. 14. All classes are 8:309:30 a.m. at Chick-fil-A, 4980 Houston Road, Florence. There will be free coffee for seniors and complimentary snacks. Divinity offers these classes because it’s important for seniors to know all of their options, Holland said. “They need to be asking those questions and getting involved in their health care.” According to Holland,

BURLINGTON — Maria Brown of Burlington is filling the vacancy to Division 2 seat on the Boone County Board of Educaiton. Brown was appointed by Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday. “I’m very excited and a little nervous,” Brown said. “I think it’s going to be a great opportunity. I’m going to learn as much as I can I’ll be doing a lot of listening. I want to get a better understanding of the issues the schools are facing and bring what insight I can to help and hopefully be a productive member of the board.” Brown and the Boone County School District were notified of the appointment Sept. 20. The appointment will become official when Brown is sworn in at the next school board meeting, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 10, at the Ralph Rush Staff Development Center, Florence. Division 2 includes Burlington and Longbranch elementary schools, Camp Ernst and Cooper middle schools, and Ryle and Cooper high schools.

it’s “taking something very, very complex and taking it to something so easy that anybody can relate to and understand.” Last year was the first year the group offered classes. The goal this year was to still offer the free educational events, but expand upon it so everyone feels welcomed, said Holland. They were trying to find a place that’s “part of the area,” she said. “And Houston Road, I mean you can’t get more centered than that.” Those with questions about Medicare or the Affordable Care Act, can contact Holland at 859818-0042, 859-283-5755 or for a free consultation.

of the Arboretum.” Proceeds from the affair go toward a fund for the creation of an education and visitors center for the arboretum, Stone said. That project is “getting closer and closer.” The idea of such a center is important to the arboretum, he said. It creates an “identifiable location, a home if you will” and will provide a place to host programs and events. Joan Klahr of Florence has been a member of the Friends group since 2002. When people first come to the arboretum, located at Central Park, she said they ask where it is. The building, she said, will provide a place to

the Tri-state. According to Margie Bellhorn of Union, a member of the Friends of Big Bone group that’s hosting the park events, Big Bone has participated in the Great Outdoor Weekend for at least five years. They participate, she said, “to educate the community on the birthplace of paleontology.” Tours along the park’s Big Bone Trail with local archaeologists, paleontologists and historians will run from noon to 4 p.m. both days. Visitors can learn about the ice age, Pleistocene mammals and Native Americans. An 1800s-era camp site will also be on display and, new this year, will be a kids’ archeology corner, Bellhorn said. From noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, Critters in the Classroom, from Wild Birds Unlimited, will be on hand with owls and other birds.

A growing event, it’s “gotten bigger every year,” she said. The park, said Bellhorn, is “basically a gem in the rough a lot of people don’t know about.” It’s a local park, easily accessible with “a lot of history,” she said. According to the “Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky,” “a great ice sheet stretched from northern Canada to the Ohio River” 15,000-20,000 years ago. South of that, the book reads, woolly mammoths, mastodons, giant ground sloths, giant bison and other animals came to a salt lick. “Many were trapped in the surrounding bogs and died, their bones buried and preserved around the salt like that came to be named Big Bone Lick.” The encyclopedia says by the mid-19th century, Big Bone was “internationally renowned as one of the most important repositories of prehistoric animal bones on earth, but slowly the site was being looted and its contents carried to other locations.”

The idea for the Autumn Affair came from discussions about doing an event with the Boone County Visual Arts Association. This year, several members of the group will provide art for the auction, he said. Florence artist Ruthe Wyman is one. This is the third year she’ll be participating in the event. “I think it’s good to participate in your community, to be involved,” she said. “The arboretum is just beautiful and I’ve enjoyed working with the Friends

FLORENCE — Crystal Gibson is a busy woman. The Union resident is a wife, mother of two boys, ages 6 and 4, and has a third son due to arrive in January. In addition she’s vice president of communications and public affairs for Citi in Florence, which provides a broad range of financial services and products. Gibson is also working hard to make a difference in the lives of others as the chairwoman of the 2013 United Way of Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Area annual campaign. “My No. 1 goal is to have the most successful campaign we’ve had to date,” Gibson said. “Not just to say that I lead the most successful campaign, but because this community is my home. This is where my friends and family are. There are people here who have needed and utilized United Way’s services. I want to see the organization continue to grow and make an impact.” United Way works to

strengthen the building blocks of a good quality of life – education, income and Gibson health. The non-profit organization recruits people and organizations from all across the region. United Way of Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Area supports 130 organizations such as the American Cancer Society and Success By 6. According to Gibson, United Way is all about getting things done. “I take a lot of provide in being a part of (United Way),” she said. “Not only to I get to represent the organization I work for – Citi has been an outstanding partner for United Way – but it’s an opportunity for me to be engaged in something that’s far more amazing than I ever expected.” In her role as Northern Kentucky campaign chair, Gibson is part of the regional Campaign Cabinet for United Way of Greater Cincinnati. Campaign strategies include focusing on engaging cur-

rent donors, increasing the number of leadership givers of $2,500 or more and increasing participation of new donors. Leshia Lyman, director of the United Way Norther Kentucky office, said Gibson is a good person to have on board. “First and foremost, she is is very involved in the community and because of that she really gets the big picture,” Lyman said. Gibson has been involved with United Way since 2005. Beyond the annual campaign, she has chaired the Northern Kentucky Action Council and Children Prepared for Kindergarten Committee, as well as served on the UWGC Impact Cabinet, Board of Directors and Boone County Success by 6 Board. The Boone County native said she is excited about this year’s campaign. “It’s critical to the sustainability of education, income and health, which I believe are three critical areas for any community’s survival.” Want to continue the conversation?

Bean Bash is back for 40th year By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Soon, outside the gates of Turfway Park, a smokey mist shall rise from a giant jet black kettle. No, it’s not some witch’s brew. It is magical, nonetheless, as it symbolizes a special gathering of the community – the annual Bean Bash. Brewing inside that kettle are beans. Pounds of beans ready to be gobbled down with warm cornbread and a cool drink. “(The Bean Bash) is about community connec-

Yealey school living up to namesake after 50 years By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Nestled in a quite area of the community, the building gracing the name A.M. Yealey Elementary stands sturdy and proud. Inside, as it has been for the last 50 years, administrators, teachers and staff work to fill the minds of students with knowledge. “All the schools focus on college and career readiness,” Yealey Principal Linda Black said. “We’ve always valued that. What we’re doing today is going to impact the community, the state, the country, even the world in the future. We’re building a legacy.” It’s a legacy that began Sept. 5, 1963, when the doors to Yealey first opened. A 50th anniversary open house will be 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, at the school, 10 Yealey Drive, Florence. Guests of honor will include alumni, former administrators, teachers, staff, Rep. Addia Wuchner and Mayor Diane Whalen. The event will include self-guided or studentlead tours, Black said. Time capsule items contributed by current students, to represent the times, will be on display. The time capsule, to be buried on the property will also include a current list of students and staff and a copy of the celebration guest book. Throughout the week Yealey students will celebrate with mini events including a gathering for a special commemorative photo and a 1960sthemed dance. Arlene Tackett, a retired teacher from Yealey who now subs for the school, said this is an important celebration “Fifty years is a milestone,” she said. “The school is still in good standing, looking good

and doing great things for the kids. That’s important to celebrate.” Yealey, she said, bears the name of a popular Florence and Boone County educator Almer Michael Yealey, better known as Professor Yealey. He was a public school principal and local historian and even wrote stories for the Boone County Recorder. Yealey first moved to Boone County in 1898 where he was a farmer and taguht school for 41 years. He taught in four rural Boone County Schools before becoming the principal at Florence Public School from 1900 to 1931. He established Florence High School in 1911. He taught again in Florence from 1943 to 1945, and for four years at New Haven Elementary. He was a member, vice president and historian of the Boone County Historical Society, which was organized in March 1950. In 1959, when he was 86, he was described as “a very spry man,” according an article published in the archives on the Boone County Public Library web site, Yealey died in November 1962 at age 89. Less than a year later, construction of Yealey Elementary was complete and the school named in his honor. Yealey educators and staff, according to Black, have since lived up to the image built by “Professor Yealey.” The teachers “always think of the kids first,” she said. “The school has never lost sight of doing what’s best for the kids.” At Yealey, she said, lives are changed every day because everyone who walks through the halls of the one-floor building are cared about.

TMC theater opens with ‘Soldier Come Home’ Community Recorder

Thomas More College’s theater department and The Villa Players will open its season with “Solider Come Home,” written by Frank W. Wicks Jr. and directed by Jim Nelson. Productions will be at the Thomas More College Theatre, Crestview Hills, at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Sept. 27, 28, at 2 p.m. and Sunday Sept. 29. Before the performance, Rabbit Hash String Band & Friends will perform Civil Warera music. Original letters written during the Civil War will also be on display. The play is based on the Civil War letters of Wicks’ great-

grandparents, Philip and Mary Pringle, and family members, written between 1859 and 1865 from western Pennsylvania and from major Civil War battle sites. In 1950, the long-forgotten letters were discovered in a shoe box in the attic of the home of Wicks’ grandparents. Wicks’ father, Frank Wicks Sr., began to transcribe the letters. Frank Wicks Jr., a founding member of the Long Wharf Theater, a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and a theater professional since 1958, continued the project after his father’s death and then began transforming the letters into the dramatic stage presentation of “Soldier, Come Home.”

About 15 of the original letters on which the play is based will be on display in front of the theater, including one that Pringle wrote to her husband on the battlefields, informing him that Lincoln was shot. General admission tickets are $10 and can be purchased online. For more information on the performance, visit or call 859-341-5800. The next production will be “Red” by John Logan and directed by Frank Wicks Nov. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10. “Red” focuses on abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko.

St. Henry refocuses after All ‘A’ title By James Weber

ERLANGER — The St. Henry District High School volleyball teammaybeyoungerandshorter than recent versions of itself, but the goals remain the same. The Crusaders are riding a record of 18-4 heading into a showdown with Ninth Region rival Ryle Sept. 24. St. Henry then plays Newport at home Thursday, Sept. 26, in a conference match. St. Henry is coming off its second state title in the All “A” Classic, which prompted an awards ceremony in school the morning of Sept. 23. “It was a great feeling to win and it did a lot for our confidence,” said sophomore middle hitter Janelle Tobler, who was the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. St. Henry defeated Allen Central 25-11, 25-8 in the final, capping a six-match romp through the field Sept. 14 in Jeffersontown. The Crusaders won two sets from Presentation by a combined five points but gave up no more than 15 points in any other set. The Crusaders received an MVP performance from Tobler, who led the Crusaders with 36 kills. “She’s a big leaper and she’s a big part of our offense,” said St. Henry head coach Maureen Kaiser. Sophomore Dani Noll was next in kills with 25. Junior setter Kendyll Kraus totaled 120 assists. Noll and Kraus were named all-tournament. Libero

Corie Flood recorded 68 digs, and middle hitter Karly Lehmkuhl had eight blocks. Winning six matches in a short period of time tested the team’s depth, which was one of the goals of participating in the tourney. St. Henry has only played in the tournament the past two seasons. “We have a whole new roster, but it was a goal to win the region, and it was a goal to win state once we got there,” Kaiser said. “We have a really young team, and we had to use everybody to win.” The Crusaders have two seniorsontheroster,FloodandKarlee Schreiber, and essentially an all-newgroupofstartersthough Kraus saw plenty of time last season at the all-important setter position. Tobler is the top returning offensive threat for the Crusaders, who had to replace Division I college recruits Rachel Fortner and Abbey Bessler. “We’re smaller this year,” Kaiser said. “We don’t have 6foot girls to set the ball up for, so we had to change our offense. We have to be quicker and focus more on placement.” St. Henry followed up its All “A” title with key conference wins over Brossart and Newport Central Catholic. Among key matches coming up, St. Henry plays Notre Dame Oct. 10 at Thomas More College. “We hope to keep playing well and be at our best at the end,” Tobler said.

Walton-Verona football prospers Bearcats dealing with heavy injuries By James Weber

St. Henry won the All "A" state volleyball championship, THANKS TO ST. HENRY

WALTON — Looking at the record and statistics of the Walton-Verona High School football team at the halfway point of the season, it would appear the Bearcats are in top form with a 4-1 record as they prepare to defend their title in Class 2A, District 5. One number that does need improvement is the amount of injuries the Bearcats have suffered this season, as the team has not been able to employ several key starters in the first half of the year.

“Staying healthy is our big thing,” said Bearcats head coach Jeff Barth. “This has been the most difficult year we’ve had with injuries. We’ve had several guys out and we hope to get some of them back. We had over 50 guys in camp and at practice the other day, we had 32 with equipment.” Walton takes on Carroll County (2-3) in the first district game. The Bearcats last year beat Carroll 27-7 and the Panthers last week fell 48-6 to Bellevue last week amidst a driving rainstorm that pelted all of Northern Kentucky. “It’s going to be a very difficult district run,” Barth said. “It’s tough to get a gauge on Carroll County in a mudbath game. Bellevue is throwing

about 80 percent of the time and we run about 80 percent of the time. Carroll has a lot of size and depth. Owen has struggled a little bit but they will definitely be a tough customer. We’re not sneaking up on anybody anymore. We’re going from the hunter to the hunted. We have to play well to win. We’re not going to out-athlete anybody.” The list of key injuries starts with senior defensive back Jake Higgins, who dislocated his elbow in what Barth deemed a “gross” injury. Starting nose tackle Daniel Tilley has been out with a concussion. Lineman Brandon Wilson, who made the game-saving tackle on a two-point try against BelleSee FOOTBALL, Page A9

It was an actionpacked game with fantastic plays, many of them coming from the alumni side to the applause of the crowd which happily cheered on both teams. In speaking with varsity and alumni players after the game, it was great to hear that both sides fully expected to win the game and many alums were left shaking their heads and muttering, “Wait ’til next

year!” Mike Fayson and Jeff Tetteh scored one goal each, leading the alumni effort. Tetteh’s goal was a triumphant return for a fan favorite who missed his senior year with a severe leg injury.

vue the first game, has been out since. “We are really thin right now and we haven’t had that issue in the four previous years,” Barth said. “We’re happy to be 4-1 but we would like to be healthier. Our guys are battling through. That’s the thing we’ve got to do. That’s what we stress, next man up, play to the best of your ability.” The offensive line, anchored by veterans Ben

Whalen (senior) and David Carr (junior) and supplemented by younger players such as Noah Martin and Danny Martin, has prospered. Mason Compton and the Latimores, Chris and Will, have anchored the rushing attack this season and have combined for 18 total touchdowns through five games. “We’ve had great leadership from Mason Compton and Chris Latimore,” Barth said. “Justin Kline has matured at QB. We’ve been able to throw the football more this year than we have in the past.”

Taking care of the ball will be another key as the Bearcats go through their district schedule the next four weeks. “We’ll have to eliminate the turnovers,” Barth said. “Against Holmes (a 27-14 defeat), we had four turnovers. We had late turnovers against Grant that almost hurt. We have to maintain our focus and play every play. We’re very good when we’re focused but there have been times when we lost focus.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Take responsibility for trash


We are Cooper FFA, and we took part in the Trash for Cash Program with Boone County Solid Waste Management. We cleaned up five miles between Camp Ernst and Longbranch roads near Randall K. Cooper High School on the afternoon of Sept. 9. This was one of our kickoff events for our chapter having members help out the community. Before we went out, we had a group talk with our advisor, Mr. White, making sure that we kept our eyes out for anything harmful. We made sure we looked out for each other on the roadways. I have never quite understood how litter ever gets to the ground, or why it’s so hard to throw away your own trash. It upsets me that people can be lazy about even the simple things in life like cleaning up after yourselves. It’s not our job or another person’s job to pick up another’s trash. We live in a very nice town, but who wants to come here and see nasty trash all over the sides of the road? Not me. I want to live somewhere that we don’t have trash or dangerous items littering our roadways. Even though we made a clean change around our school and community, it will only last for a short time until more trash is thrown out the window of passing cars. It’s really hard to try when others don’t care. If people just recycle more or even keep a trash bag in their car then our litter problem would be over. Let’s join together and keep our roads beautiful and clean. Nicole Reed Union

Boone Co. team helps clean roads

Dressed in an orange vest, brown work gloves and work boots, the Boone County High School boys cross country team and adult volunteers picked up trash to perform a community service and to participate in Boone County’s Trash for Cash program, Sept.

“It is good to have the experience,” said senior Lukas Myers. The teens began their work Saturday morning on Ted Bushelman Blvd. and Aero Parkway in Florence. The crew encountered a wide variety of highway trash, from cardboard and plastic foam to diapers and snakes. “The work is moderately easy,” said 16-year-old crew member Brandon Beneker. “Someone has to do it.” The team members enjoyed their time working together on the project and developed an appreciation for keeping public spaces clean. “The cleanup program was beneficial for our team in a few ways” said coach Terry Wyatt. “The team earned much-needed funds for cross country meet entry fees this season and the students have learned to think twice before throwing trash out on their public roads.” Terry Wyatt Florence

Cleanup helps foster-care program

I am writing to tell you about our experience with the Boone County Trash for Cash program. This is the fifth time that the NECCO-Florence office has participated in the program. We had 17 participants this year and everyone had a positive attitude about the adventure. The funds that we raise are used for children who are placed in our fostercare program. This gives us motivation to do the job well. We split up into four teams with four to five people on each team. We were able to clean about four miles in two hours. The mass amount of cigarette butts made it take a little longer. I bet we picked up more than 500 of them. We also found bottles, fast-food bags and even a couple of needlesEEK. All and all it was a successful day and we will definitely participate in the Trash for Cash program next year. Cara Schultz Florence

Coaches linked Boone to the world

A stentorian blast of the coach’s horn in the distance aroused any dozing hostler and hotelier alike to the arrival of the coach while yet some distance away. Unlike the studied indifference to the arrival or departure of a public conveyance today, all within hearing gathered for the event. This was their only connection with the outside world, Tom Schiffer bringing news, COMMUNITY passengers RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST and, perhaps, a little freight and mail. A newspaper was a real treat. As it came into view, the coach rumbled forth with a driver on the box, reins in one hand and loudly cracking his whip with the other. And, yes, this was a scene repeated in Burlington, Florence, Covington and roadhouses in between and beyond. Until shortly after 1800, all travel was by boat, foot or horseback ... there being no wheeled vehicles in Kentucky at all until 1787. “Waggons” were introduced to convey freight and passengers over the crude roads. These gradually phased-out the packhorse men and later gave way to closed coaches. The Covington and Lexington Road (U.S. 25 and I-75 today) touched Boone County’s eastern edge and intersected the road to Louisville (U.S. 42). At an early date there was a line from Burlington to Covington (Route 18, linking with 25 and 42). Toll houses were erected to pay for the upkeep of the roads. One stretch of road had a toll house about every five miles. A typical coach employed six horses. Horses were flesh and blood: they required food, water and periodic rest. The hostler met

This is a toll house in Constance, circa about 1910.PROVIDED

the coach with six fresh horses and led the jaded ones to water and rest. Travelers found rest and overnight accommodations within. The number of roadhouses needed to service man and beast depended upon the steepness of the grade. Stops would be made and a flurry of activity ensued as a hostler hitched the fresh horses, passengers stretched their legs and sought quick refreshment. Pit stops at auto races today are but a present-day manifestation of the scene. Drivers were often arrogant, impatient and tough. At least one froze

Tackle your faith as you would a sport We took the plunge into tackle football with our 10year-old son this year. And for anyone who’s traveled down this path (or any other competitive sport) you know the commitment is serious. Practice three times a week and two games on the weekend. Not to mention all the time invested in fundraising. Needless to say, if I wasn’t familiar with football before, I am now. Terminology, plays, equipment – I’ve learned it all in just eight short weeks. I now watch college and professional football games with a whole new appreciation. I understand the calls – well, most of them. I see the fouls – well, some of them. Yet, I cheer and boo with a new perception that makes the game so much more enjoyable. And thank goodness, because I live with two males who can find a game to watch almost every night of the

week. This new knowledge has caused me to wonder though: what would life look like if I Julie House invested as much time in COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST my relationCOLUMNIST ship with Christ as I have football recently? How would my life change if I “practiced” my walk three nights a week, reading the “plays” (promises) found in the bible and put them into action on the “field” of life? What would my coming week look like if on Sundays I put all that I’ve learned throughout the week into action and spent the day “playing” (in fellowship) with God and those I love? Well, if the answer is anything like football, it would

mean that I would have a whole new appreciation for God and his plans for my life. It would mean that I would “tackle” my problems with a new “play” (approach). It would mean that I would have a whole new outlook on life. To understand God’s ways, promises and plans for my life I must invest in him. So many times we excuse ourselves from investing in our relationship with Christ because we are too busy. We are too busy with work and the extracurricular activities in life. Yet we long to understand God’s plan for us. Knowing the dangers of football, I would never send my son onto the field without the proper equipment, knowledge and coaching. Knowing the dangers in life, we should not place ourselves (or our children) on the battlefield of life without the proper equipment knowledge, and coach-

ing either. Your equipment is found in the word of God: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11) Your knowledge is found in God: “For the Lord is the God of knowledge.” (1 Samuel 2:3) Your coaching is found in Christ: “Blessed is the man whom you instruct, O Lord, and teach out of your law, that you may give him rest from the days of adversity.” (Psalms 94: 12-13) I pray you find time to “practice” your walk with Christ this week and be blessed with a big win.

Service was limited to where and when popular subscription was assured and often ran rain or shine. Fare was expensive for the six to eight passengers.

50TH ANNIVERSARY By Stephanie Salmons


Most knights are of shining-armor variety. The knights of the Knights of Columbus Bishop Ackerman Council 5453, however, are golden. The group – which includes members from three Boone County parishes Immaculate Heart of Mary in Burlington, All Saints in Walton and St. Paul in Florence – recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Founded in August 1963, the council also included members from St. Timothy in Union and Mary, Queen of Heaven, in Erlanger until several years ago. To commemorate the occasion, a 50-foot cake was displayed, then served, at the Boone County Public Library in August. Celebrations continue Saturday, Sept. 28, with a 3 p.m. prayer service at Immaculate Heart of Mary, 5876 Veterans Way, Burlington, followed by the council’s annual picnic for members and their families. According to current Grand Knight Eric Ritchie of Burlington, the Knights of Columbus was founded in New Haven, Conn., in 1882. “It was originally formed back in the 1800s to help widows and orphans in the community if the father passed away,” he explained. The organization of Catholic men has evolved over the years because there are “different social safety nets now,” but the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism remain. This council donates money each year to St. Vincent de Paul, offers scholarships and even hosts youth contests throughout the year, Ritchie

said. Recently, they purchased a $40,000 ultrasound machine for CareNet of Northern Kentucky “through the effort of our local council,” he said. Council 5453, however, is perhaps most recognized in the community for the piping hot doughnuts doled out, through the group’s Holy Donut trailer, at area events like the Boone County Fair. According to Ritchie, between local fairs, parish festivals and other events, the Knights sell between 100,000 and 120,000 doughnuts a year. The proceeds from stints at the Boone and Grant county fairs fund the group’s charitable work for the

year. When they sell doughnuts at events the remainder of the year, those proceeds can then go to the church or organization. While the group does have social activities, Ritchie said the “primary purpose of our order is charity.” “It’s a way for Catholic men to give back to the community (and) share their faith with others,” he said. “There are many avenues to do that. This is just one ... It’s good to be able to work with the members of your own parish and parishes in the community and do good.” Jim Alcorn of Florence has been a member of the Knights council since

Sanford “Sonny” Acree was an early member of the Bishop Ackerman Knights of Columbus Council 5453 and a baker who came up with the idea for offering doughnuts around 1965. Sonny, who owned Colonial Bake Shop in Park Hills, knew a baker in Harrison, Ohio, who had a kettle and made doughnuts at the fair, “so he went over and asked if he could borrow it,” said his widow, Mary Ann Acree of Erlanger. The council was new and they wanted to get information out about getting new members, she said. The doughnuts were used to attract people but “it got so people wanted to start buying them.” she said. Her husband, Acree said, would “be so happy. He’d be thrilled to death to see the state of the art trailer that they have.”

1973 and served as grand knight in 1975. He was looking to do charity work but didn’t know with whom he wanted to volunteer. “The Knights of Columbus sounded like a good way to go and it sure has been,” he said. Alcorn said he hoped the council would be remembered “for what we do and the volunteerism of the people in the group. People in the group “are just so giving,” he said, but not just within the organization. They’re “very active in their churches (and) in the community,” Alcorn continued. “I think that would be the legacy.”

Warm up with dinner rolls, pot pie I’ve told you before how this column “connects” all of us. There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t hear from someone telling me about a new recipe they’ve tried, or a treasured one they want to share. It’s all about food, family and friends. Laurie Bredenfoerder’s story about her Rita homemade Heikenfeld lasagna is RITA’S KITCHEN one of those priceless gems. After she read my recipe for easy lasagna using no-cook lasagna noodles, she told me it’s not so bad to use the no-cook noodles, but “They may be hard to find or more costly than the mundane ones. If so, I can do much better.” Laurie sent me her recipe for her family’s favorite, which she has been making for 25-plus years using any kind of lasagna noodle right out of the box. She’s never had a problem with using them and her lasagna turns out perfect, every time. “Great for a large gathering and this may well be the perfect lasagna recipe. It’s a legend in our family”, she said. Unfortunately, the recipe is too long to share here so I’ll put it on my blog. But don’t let that hold you back. I can’t wait to try Laurie’s recipe and I want you to try it, too.

Dairy-free, cholesterol-free, low-fat dinner rolls Don’t be squeamish about the ingredients

us, I knew I’d get requests for this favorite pot pie. You can buy pearl onions frozen and just pour out what you need.

⁄8 cup frozen peas ⁄4 cup frozen sliced carrots 6 cooked pearl onions 1 ⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken, cut 1/2- to 3/4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 oz. to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie 1

here. Powdered creamer is used by more than a few bakers to achieve a nice-tasting, dairyfree dinner roll. Check out the photo of the batch I made. They taste as good as they look. The diabetic exchange is 11/2 starch, 1/2 fat for each roll. You can do this by hand or machine. 1 tablespoon rapid-rise yeast plus a couple pinches sugar (don’t use regular active yeast) 21⁄4 cups warm water (110-115 degrees) 1 ⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 shortening 1 ⁄4 cup powdered non-dairy creamer 21⁄4 teaspoons salt 5-6 cups bread flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve yeast and pinches of sugar in warm water. In a mixing bowl, add sugar, shortening, creamer, salt and 5 cups flour.

Add yeast and mix well on low speed. Turn to medium and beat until smooth. Add more flour if necessary to make a soft, but sticky dough. Either knead it for 6-8 minutes by machine or by hand. If doing by hand, turn out on floured surface. Knead until smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour. Punch down and turn out onto lightly floured surface; divide into 18 to 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a roll. Place two inches apart on sprayed baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Key lime cake glaze: Dot, an Erlanger reader, made the yummy key lime cake published, but said the glaze was runny and too intensely flavored for her palate. Next time she’ll use two cups powdered sugar and start with two tablespoons lime juice and two tablespoons water and go from there. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Column: Get ready for winter squash Winter squash is appearing in local markets. In addition to the familiar pumpkin, there are other varieties that come in many shapes and colors. Winter squash has a tough outer rind, or skin, that is removed prior to eating. The many varieties can be baked, steamed, boiled or microwaved. Recipes featuring winter squash range from appetizers to desserts. Winter squash is a wonderful source of beta-carotene. Betacarotene may reduce the risk of some types of cancer. It is also rich in nutrients associated with eye health and reduced risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Pick winter squash that is heavy for its size with few or no blemishes or soft spots. It is best if the stem is attached. The flesh of one variety of winter squash may be substituted for another in most recipes. Scrub the outer surfaces of winter squash with a stiff brush and plenty of clean water prior to

Blue Ash company sued by state A company I reported on earlier this year has been sued by the state of Ohio for, among other things, taking advantage of elderly and low-income people. Queen City Script Care, of Blue Ash, was to provide discounted prescription medication to those in need, but is being accused of making unauthorized withdrawals from consumer’s bank accounts and failing to provide refunds. Back in February, I reported on the complaints I received from many of the company’s customers. People like Krystal Beckelhimer, of Georgetown, who said, “The company worked good for about two months. I got my medicine, paid $30, and then all of a sudden I wasn’t getting any medicine and he basically said, “’Well, it’s on the way.’” Beckelhimer had complained to company owner Tom Fenske, but says she was still charged $30 monthly even though she wasn’t getting her medicine. Then, she says, Queen City Script Care took multiple charges out of her bank account in the same month. Ruth Hill of Versailles also had multiple payments taken from her bank account. “The problem started when there were four

withdrawals in May,” she says. Her husband, Clarence, was paying the company Howard $40 a Ain month and HEY HOWARD! also had multiple withdrawals from his account in one month. Missing medicine and multiple withdrawals were also big problems for Betty Goodman of Georgetown, who complained to Fenske. “One month he took out $30 from my checking account six times. I went to the bank three times to stop the payments,” she said. Goodman is also upset because they kept taking money for medicine for her husband Larry – months after he died. “I kept calling the office and saying, ‘Why are you taking money for Larry? He’s dead, he’s not getting no medicine.’” Many consumers said they only way they stopped those payments was to close their bank account. Queen City Script Care President Tom Fenske wouldn’t do an interview with me, but told me all money withdrawn by mistake was being refunded. However, the Ohio At-

torney General’s office says it has 20 unresolved complaints against the business totaling $7,141.18. In the lawsuit, the business and owners Thomas Fenske and Theresa Fenske are charged with multiple violations of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act. The suit seeks restitution for consumers, injunctive relief, civil penalties, and other costs. Attorney General Mike DeWine says other consumers have been affected and he wants those who have been treated unfairly to file a complaint with his office at 800-282-0515. DeWine says, “With the upcoming heath care changes, we will continue to watch for businesses that make misleading claims about health care services.” There really is a program to help patients get free or discounted medications. It is run by the pharmaceutical companies and eligible consumers can apply for patient assistance for free. Many nonprofits offer help for no charge.

It started 10 years ago with just six women knitting scarves for the needy. Now Scarf It Up For Those In Need is looking to provide almost 10,000 scarves this winter to needy people in the greater Cincinnati area. Tammy Simpson, the executive director of Scarf It Up and CEO of its parent organization Shoulder to Shoulder Inc, said they will provide scarves, hats and gloves to 64 agencies in Northern Kentucky and have also begun working with the Freestore Foodbank and St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati. Scarf It Up For Those In Need is in its10th year and Simpson said it just keeps growing. “This was really a hobby that became a passion that has turned into a ministry,” Simpson said. Simpson has been knitting for many years and most of her family and

friends already have their own scarves. “Now I can make scarves for people that really need them,” she said. All scarves distributed through Scarf It Up are handmade and created by one of hundreds of volunteers. The fundraiser helps the group to provide gloves and hats to go with the scarves. The biggest event for the group is the upcoming Handbag Event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Receptions on Donaldson Road in Erlanger. Tickets are $25 and include lunch, a musical performance by the band Rucca, door prizes, a designer purse pick one with $100 inside and a Chinese auction for 50 baskets worth $100 each. Brand name purses will also be sold at prices ranging from $5 to $50. Simpson said the event is crucial to Scarf It Up For Those in Need be-

cause it funds about 60 percent of the gloves and hats that are distributed. This year, the group is also working to raise an extra $5,000 to buy warmer gloves. Simpson said she is proud of how the community has gotten involved with donations of time, money and scarves. “Sometimes the hats, gloves and scarves are the only things keeping children warm at night,” Simpson said. Sixty-five percent of the donations are distributed to children and Newport and Covington schools.

Rotary hears about Cincinnati developments Community Recorder

Who knew there were so many exciting signs of progress everywhere in the city of Cincinnati. The Florence Rotary Club hosted Jason Barron, director of public affairs for the city and Office of the Mayor. Barron updated the group on past projects as well as upcoming development activities. There has been a concerted effort by Mayor Mark Mallory to enhance the city’s image as a destination and economic hub. Over the course of the last eight years many high profile projects have been undertaken as part of the efforts to reinvigorate the city’s downtown. One of the initial efforts to re-image and re energize the downtown was the renovation of Fountain Square. The square has gone from a drab concrete jungle to an open and inviting public space hosting numerous events. A key factor in rejuvenating it has been programming events to draw people into the downtown area. Fountain Square has a website devoted to promoting the programming there, which offers something for everyone year round. The goal is to continue the momentum in creating space that will attract new residents, jobs and investment in the city. Projects recently an-

nounced span six Cincinnati neighborhoods and include the second phase of the Banks, the new headquarters for the small business incubator Cintrifuse, and 575 new apartments in several different projects. Phase one of the $675 million Banks project is complete. The second phase will include 305 apartments and 21,000 square feet of retail space, which may include a grocery store. A new apartment tower, with 111 apartments, will be built at Seventh Street and Broadway. The seven stories of apartments are being constructed on top of the city owned parking garage that was built in 2003. Future projects include a new mixed-use development in Northside by Hamilton and Blue Rock LLC. For information about weekly meetings, guest speakers and community service opportunities of the Florence Rotary Club, contact Billy Santos, president, at 859-4262285, or online at Visit the group’s web site at Florence Rotary meets weekly on Mondays at noon at the Airport Hilton Hotel in Florence.

Want a better lawn? Fertilize now fertilizer, such as urea (460-0). Or, you may find that your soil is high in phosphoMike rus (the Klahr middle HORTICULTURE number on CONCERNS the fertilizer bag), but it needs nitrogen and potassium (the first and third numbers on the fertilizer bag), so a 10-0-10 fertilizer would be ideal. The only way to know what numbers to look for

Question: What is the best lawn fertilizer, and when and how often should it be applied? Answer: Too much nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium or lime can be harmful to your lawn and landscape plants. Soil testing is a free service provided to Northern Kentucky residents by their local county extension office. A soil test often reveals that the soil only needs nitrogen, in which case you can purchase a cheaper, “farm-type”

as you are buying fertilizer is to look at the results of your soil test. If your ground tests low in phosphorus, you’ll want to select a fertilizer with a high middle number, such as 10-20-10. If you catch and remove the grass clippings from the yard when you mow, you may need to apply more phosphorus and potassium to the soil, since the clippings contain nutrients. To maintain a quality lawn, you should apply fertilizer every year. Fertilization helps maintain turf uniformity, a good green color, and reduces weed problems. These positive effects can be lost, however, if fertilizer is applied improperly or at the wrong time. Too much or too little fertilizer can result in more lawn disease problems and brown patches. Low and medium maintenance levels

are best for general lawns that get little or no summer irrigation. High and very high maintenance levels can produce a lush, green lawn, but usually require irrigation, frequent mowing, and often more pest control. Low-maintenance, cool-season lawns (fescues, bluegrass and perennial ryegrass) only

get fertilized once a year, in October or November. Medium maintenance involves two fertilizations per year, with one in September or October, and a follow-up treatment six weeks later in November or December. Don’t apply fertilizer during hot weather to dry lawns. Fertilize after a rain or irrigation has soaked the

ground, and after the leaf blades have dried from rain or dew. High maintenance lawns need treated once in September/October, again in October/November, and a third time in November or December, always keeping 4-6 weeks between treatments. A “very high” maintenance level would be the result of also applying an additional (fourth) fertilizer treatment in the spring. If this is done, only half the normal (fall) rate should be applied in late May to help “green up” the grass, if desired. Don’t miss the fall window of opportunity for fertilizing your lawn. Waiting until spring to fertilize will mean more weeds, diseases and pests next year. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

4C honoring N.Ky. man for Read On!

4C for Children, the region’s leading resource in early education and care, will honor three individuals for their work ensuring bright futures for children in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The Champions for Children Celebration will be Feb. 1 at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. The 2013 honorees are: » Brent Cooper, cochair of Read On!, the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky multi-year regional campaign for early gradelevel reading, and member of the Northern Kentucky Education Council Board. He is president/ owner of C-Forward, an IT services company. He lives in Fort Thomas. » Alfonso Cornejo, the force behind the book and play titled “City of Immi-

grants,” an “anti-bullying education tool” for local school-age children. President of AC & Consulting Associates, a business consulting firm, and longtime president of the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA, he lives in Montgomery. » Buffie Rixey, immediate past president and current member of the board of Kindervelt City Wide and a longtime supporter of child-related causes. During her twoyear presidency of Kindervelt, she raised over $1 million for Cincinnati Children’s Division of Asthma Research. She lives in Indian Hill. This is the eighth year 4C has named Champions for Children. A special feature of this year’s event will be an aerial performance by Susie Wil-

liams as guests transition from a 6:30 p.m. cocktail reception into the Hall of Mirrors for the program, dinner and dancing. “4C is in a unique position to turn the spotlight on those who work to ensure a bright future for the children of our community,” says 4C President/CEO Sallie Westheimer. “By so doing, 4C hopes to inspire others to become involved in addressing our community’s continuing need to ensure that all children have a positive experience and are prepared for success in school and life.” This year’s event will also include presentation of the third annual Champions for Children: The Next Generation award to a project involving high school students taking action on behalf of the chil-

dren of our community – or of our world. 4C’s goal in presenting this award, according to Westheimer, is to “reinforce in the leaders of tomorrow the importance of investing in the children of today--especially those from birth to age 8.” The deadline for nominations is October 1. More about this award and a nomination form at Co-chairs Ann Williams and Victoria Ames are leading the 4C Champions for Children Committee which includes: Lisa Cooper, Tiffiny Grale Dawson, Marla Hurston Fuller, Katie Hayden, Mary Kay Irwin, Carole Rigaud, Jennifer Saporito, Merri Gaither Smith, Keisha Steward, Patti Towbin and Joelle Tunning.
