The Hebron Fire Protection District’s biennial open house, pictured here in 2011, is a “one-stop shop of safety learning,” organizers say. The open house is noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5.THANKS TO

HEBRON — A biennial event returns to the community. The 2013 Hebron Fire Protection District Open house is noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, Station 1, 3120 North Bend Road, Hebron. The event kicks off Fire Prevention Week. District public information officer Michael Fronimos said the district is open 364 days a year for people to come and see their fire trucks. One day, however, the district brings in “other attractions involved with public safety and learning” to not only showcase the Hebron department but to offer an opportunity to also learn pool, cooking and other safety. “It’s a one-stop shop of safety and learning,” he said of the event, which was last held in 2011. Fronimos said it’s one of the few events in Hebron “that is a community event.” Fire prevention week is always the first full week of October to remember the great Chicago fire of 1871. “Here at Hebron, it’s always been a small community affair and previously it was very small,” Fronimos said. It would


draw maybe 400 or 500 people. In the last 12 years he’s been doing the open house, Fronimos said they’ve gone from about 700 people in attendance to “well over 5,000.” When he took over the organizing efforts, Fronimos said he began inviting other agencies. “Why not have things there that people don’t normally get to see,” he said. This year’s open house will feature crews from Burlington, Florence, Point Pleasant, Petersburg and Greendale, Ind. fire districts, the Boone County Sheriff’s

The student body at Boone County Schools – the third largest school district in the state – is growing, not only in numbers, but academic achievement. According to the results of Kentucky’s annual school report card, the district moved from last year’s proficient to a distinguished classification, scoring a 63.3 overall score. The district now ranks in the top 10 percent in the state. “Our district works as a team to create a culture that supports every student in Boone County,” Superintendent Randy Poe said. “While we are ecstatic with these results, it is only one point of data Poe showing our progress of having all students being career, college and life ready. This accomplishment validates the work of our teachers and students in the 21st century skills of communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity that are required so that all students are competitive in their chosen path after graduating high school.” The report card scores are based on multiple academic measures, including student scores on state tests, graduation rates and college or career readiness. Success in such a large, diverse district – student population just surpassed 20,000 – does not come easy, according to Boone County High School Principal Mark Raleigh. “It is a result of a very dedicated and talented professional staff that is able to target instruction and provide unique learning experiences for all students no matter their background,” he said Mark Raleigh.” Boone County and the district’s other three high schools earned distinguished classification. Boone County High School achieved the biggest improvement jump of the high schools going from a 57.6 over all score last year to 64.7 this year. The high school now ranks in the state’s 90th percentile. Kelly Elementary made the same leap. The school went from an overall See SCHOOLS, Page A2 Vol. 10 No. 40 © 2013 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

score of 61.9 to 73.4, bumping the school from the 67th percentile to the 96th. “It is quite a jump,” Kelly Elementary Principal Joe Beil said. “Multiple factors contribute to the gains realized this year. At Kelly, the students, staff and parents work collaboratively to ensure a strong sense of community and high expectations. We strive to give students individual attention. The multiple measures we take throughout the year through formal and informal assessments enable us to target and address specific academic needs.” Beil explained that as new standards in language arts and math were adopted in February 2010, Kelly, along with all other Boone schools, “immediately” began concentrated efforts to deconstruct the standards, and to initiate development and implementation. “In addition, the district’s support for our teachers’ development and implementation of effective, vetted, and sustainable instructional practices aligned with

the common core continues to be paramount,” he said. The district’s Director of Assessment Support Ben Lusk said administrators and staff are “very excited” to see continued growth across the district. “We can see the effect of a number of our initiatives and the intentional focus of our teachers to meet the needs of their students,” he said. Most schools within the district fared about the same or moved to a higher classification. Conner Middle School, however, went from a distinguished classification to proficient. Yealey and Longbranch Elementary dropped from proficient to needs improvement. According to Assistant Superintendent for Learning Support Services Alissa Ayers, over the next month, the district will analyze each component of the new accountability system. “Each of our schools, regardless of their classification, dissects the data to identify areas of growth in order to continuously improve instruction for all students,” she said. “Those schools who did not meet their goals mine the data further to analyze trends, determine causes, and plan for improvements. As a Distinguished District, Boone County supports the work of each school council to individualize instruction, align curriculum, identify professional development needs, and develop improvement plans that are specific, measurable, attainable, and focused on growth.” Want to continue the conversation?

Kentucky Symphony kicks off 22nd season By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra kicks off its 22nd season with Joe Green’s 200th Birthday Bash. The Oct. 10 birthday of composer Giuseppi Verdi, whose name is translated to Joe Green, will be celebrated by the orchestra, and attendees, at 8 p.m. Saturday Oct. 5, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion. Tickets are $19, $27 and $35 and are half-off for students 6-18. Music director James Cassidy said he liked the idea of being able to do a performance so close to Verdi’s actual 200th birthday, “doing something that’s kind of fun and something that’s off our beaten path.” There’s a lot of music that will be familiar to those in the audience. “Part of that is because it’s public domain,” said Cassidy. Another reason? “The fact that it’s so tuneful.” Birthday cannoli will be served after the concert. “Where do you get birthday canolli after a concert?” Cassidy asked. “You don’t get that anywhere, (but) you get that here in Northern Kentucky.” Venturing off the beaten path is nothing new for the KSO. “Some things are a onetime (production),” said Cassidy. “You really will not get this any place else.” That may be hard for folks to think about when information can be readily found, “our world at our finger tips,” Cassidy said. It’s not always the reality “and you certainly can’t get it live.” That, Cassidy said, has kept it fresh. “I don’t know that I would be excited going off and doing what everyone else does.” Cassidy say’s it’s “kind of hard to believe” the symphony is entering its 22nd season. While KSO offices are

in Newport, Cassidy said they’ll perform in the three Northern Kentucky counties this season. Not having their own performance space, however, means they’re “out in the community all the time.” “It makes you a little more responsive and a little more flexible,” Cassidy said. “At the same time, there are drawbacks to it too. (You) can’t have the setups and the things you’d like to have for the patrons.” Other regular performances this season include: » the United States orchestral debut of 2Cellos at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion; » a co-production of “The Sound of Music” with The Carnegie, scheduled several times Jan. 1726; » Globetrotting with the KSO, featuring 10 works under 10 minutes each by composers from nine countries and five continents on March 28 and 29 at Northern Kentucky University; and » Williams’ Wondrous World, featuring the music of John Williams performed at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion on May 10. Tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at 859-431-6216 or at the door.

Student’s art looks past the obvious By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Lurking

within that “perfect Norman Rockwell child” may just be a darker side. That sums up the message Boone County High School senior Chelsi Herzner tries to convey through her art. “I like exploring the duality of things like youthful innocence and evil,” the Florence resident said. “People perceive things as being good, but don’t necessarily understand the underlying factors or circumstances of life. The outside is pretty, but the inside is dark.” Herzner references this duality in “Playground Purgatory,” her favorite of several pieces she has on display in the

jump out from the picture. “She’s a little darker than people would assume that she would be,” Herzner said referring to the child portrayed in her drawing. “She’s essentially blending in to the background because no one really sees who she really is.” “Playground Purgatory” and several other pieces by Herzner are on display as a result of her winning a Kentucky Center Governor’s School for the Arts Carnegie Scholarship. Each year The Carnegie partners with Kentucky Center Governor’s School for the Arts – a three-week summer youth art program – to award at least three $500 scholarships. Matt Distel, The Carnegie’s exhibition director, participated in this year’s selection process. “I was looking for not just technique, but innovation and risk taking,” Distel said. “Chelsi’s art spoke to that.”

Along with the scholarship monies, the award afford students the opportunity to have their work displayed. “It’s really about encouragement as much as it is as the acknowledgment of high quality art. It lets students know that (art) is a path they can take in educational and the rest of their life.” This marks Herzner’s first solo exhibition. “It’s the best feeling because ... it’s hard to put into words,” she said. “It’s so surreal to see your work with the work of other artists. It’s flattering. It makes it seem real – this is going to happen.” She refers to her dream of pursuing her talent. “It’s art school or nothing,” Herzner said. “That’s the only way I can look at it. You’re all in or it’s not in the picture.” She plans to attend Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. Herzner’s mother, Chasity, said she is proud of her daughter for pursing her dreams. “I am most proud of Chelsi for having fully embraced her talent and focusing relentlessly as to how to achieve her future goals and pave her pathway to a career that she loves,” she said. “Chelsi has always strived to not

just broaden her horizons but to explore the unknown.” According to Chelsi, who had been focused on athletics, her passion for art was accidentally stumbled upon. “I started doodling in class,” she said. “I was having trouble concentrating. I couldn’t take notes but I could draw faces. It took off from there. Doodling actually enhances the ability to comprehend. Doodles evolve into something, doodles mean something.” Herzner primarily works with graphite and charcoal, but has explored other mediums in her recent work. “My work is not yet photo realism, but it’s not expressionistic,” she said. “It’s very soft. It’s fuzzy and it’s kinda darker than most people expect. The pictures are pretty but the messages have a heavy feel.” Although she admits to never being satisfied with the final product, she said she loves the creative process. “During the process I can breathe,” she said. “I finish a piece and start another one and I can breathe again.” Want to continue the conversation?

Mann Elementary earns Blue Ribbon By Melissa Stewart

UNION — Greyson Barber, a fifth-grade student at Mann Elementary, is honest. There are days, he said, that he doesn’t want to come to school. Sometimes he wants to sleep in or spend the day playing. This changes, however, when he walks through the front doors. “I love Mann because of the happiness and joy that goes around our school,” Barber said. That, according to Principal Connie Crigger, is why Mann Elementary is a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School. “That’s it in a nutshell. That’s what you want, that the kids will walk in this building eager to learn,” she said. “Academics come with a place they are proud of, a place they love to be.” Mann is one of only five schools in Kentucky to receive the recognition from the U.S. Department of Education this year; only 286 schools in the nation were given the honor that is based on the school’s overall academic excellence or their progress in improving student academic achievement. “It just feels really

awesome,” said Crigger. “Everyone is very excited. It’s recognition for something I already knew – that this is an amazing school. It’s a prestigious award and it’s unique that we were able to do this in seven years.” Mann was established in 2006 and has about 800 students a year in preschool through grade five. “Since the beginning, we’ve always put the kids first,” Crigger said. “We have a staff made up of superstars who give 110 percent to the kids at all times. We have parents who volunteer daily. On an average day, we have 20 parents here. You combine that with a qualified staff it’s a winning combination.” During Mann’s first year, Crigger said the state set a goal for every school to reach proficient status on state tests by 2014. “We tested above (the state’s goal of 100) and stayed at proficiency every year,” Crigger said. “Last year we had a new test system and we came out distinguished. We received a distinguished rating this year too. It’s tough to get up there and stay up there. We’re always challenging ourselves and the kids to take

learning to the next level.” Karen Cheser, deputy superintendent and chief academic officer for Boone County Schools, said the district is “extremely proud.” “This recognition demonstrates the school's constant focus on preparing all students for 21st century careers,” she said. “Teachers and staff at Mann hold high expectations of academic excellence and provide supports necessary for all students to achieve them. That Mann Elementary was able to achieve this level of recognition, only seven years after being opened, is amazing.” According to Cheser, Mann epitomizes the vision of the Boone County School District – “ensuring all students are college, career, and life ready; that pathway begins in elementary school.” Mann and the other National Blue Ribbon Schools will be honored during a ceremony Nov. 18-19 in Washington, D.C. In its 31-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has given this award on nearly 7,500 schools. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Rabbit Hash turned Inside Out Global art project makes its way to town

By Stephanie Salmons

RABBIT HASH — The historic town is taking a step into the modern art world. Visitors to Rabbit Hash will notice, at least for a short time, that the historic buildings have been plastered with photographs, faces of the community, as part of the global Inside Out project. Stacy Sims, marketing and public relations director for the Contemporary Arts Center in downtown Cincinnati, said the center has just opened the first United States exhibition of French artist JR. In 2011, JR won the TED prize and called for the creation of a global participatory art project with the potential to change the world – Inside Out. They wanted to celebrate the exhibit’s opening in the community “with this community-fo-

cused global art project,” she said. According to Sims, a photo van goes into the community where people can get their photos taken. A 3-foot by 5-foot poster of the photo is printed and participants can choose to keep the image or have it posted in the community. The project visited Rabbit Hash Sept. 21. Photos can now be seen pasted, with a water soluble paste, to the Rabbit Hash

General Store and the Mercantile building, barns, a bench, steps and even a tree. Jane Cochran, a member of the Rabbit Hash Historical Society, said the project “connects us to a worldwide community.” The community that day consisted of people who live there and folks passing through, she said. They picked the community “because a lot of


people like to come to Rabbit Hash,” said Cochran. In addition to Rabbit Hash, the Inside Out project was at Findlay Market and Fountain Square in Cincinnati and the Academy of World Languages in Evanston, Sims said. They were thinking about unique places to work within the community and had a number of urban locations already when a colleague suggested Rabbit Hash.

The historical society approved the plan. The photos, Sims said, will “stay for a while,” depending on the elements. It’s not meant to be a permanent installation. Sims said “what was really neat” was that JR and his crew were able to visit Rabbit Hash the weekend before. “It is certainly an honor and privilege for Rabbit Hash to have been asked and chosen to be involved

in such a prestigious world-wide contemporary art project as this,” historical society president Don Clare said. “Once again, our small Boone County, Ohio River hamlet enjoys global attention and acclaim.” JR’s exhibit is on display at the Contemporary Arts Center through Feb. 2.

Auditor will have summit to address NKY corruption Gannett News Servoce ERLANGER — Recent

corruption cases in some Northern Kentucky cities have drawn the state auditor to the region several times this year. Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen will make another trip here Tuesday, Oct. 15, to have a summit to discuss with the public and local elected leaders how to catch misuse of public funds. “I think we’re all a little shocked at the number of abuses of public trust we’ve seen as of late,” Edelen told The Enquirer after speaking with the Northern Kentucky Chamber about his initiative in a private luncheon in Erlanger on Wednesday. “We’re here to discuss solutions.” Edelen, a Democrat from Lexington, has been considered a potential 2015 gubernatorial candidate, though he has yet to announce his intentions. So far in Northern Kentucky this year: » Bob Due, former finance director for the city of Covington who was fired Aug. 27, was arrested Aug. 23 on charges of embezzling at least $600,000 from Covington. » Former Dayton schools Superintendent Gary Rye was accused of receiving $223,672 in unauthorized personal benefits during an eightyear period, and at a time when his district was struggling financially, according to the state audit report. » Former Boone County Water District General Manager Phil Trzop, 62, was sentenced to 60 days in jail for abuse of public trust related to improper use of funds from the sale of scrap metal. Trzop buried $5,100 of taxpayer money in his backyard. An additional $7,600 is

missing. » Boone County’s former public works director, Greg Sketch, 57, kept a secret fund, also from the sale of scrap metal, for five years. A grand jury decided not to indict Sketch after investigators learned a majority was used to buy holiday turkeys for families of underprivileged children in Boone County Schools. The summit Oct. 15 will seek to inform and brainstorm ways to catch this kind of fraud early, Edelen said. This can include segregation of duties, where the person writing the checks isn’t the same person balancing the checkbook. Edelen will hold the summit at the METS Center in Erlanger and have speakers from around the state, including the FBI and representatives from public agencies that have experienced embezzlement. This includes the city of Florence, where in 2002 investigators found then-Finance Director Ron Epling embezzled almost $5 million from the city over a 14-year period. Florence Mayor Diane Whalen and current Finance Director Linda Chapman will talk at the summit about recovering from fraud.

By James Weber

FLORENCE — The Boone County High School boys soccer team has had to rely on its offense this year more than last, when the Rebels made their first-ever trip to the state semifinals. Fortunately for Boone, the offense has relied on many weapons this year, and the defense is now catching up as the postseason nears. “The defense the past two or three games has played truly well,” said head coach Nathan Browning. “We’re moving in the right direction. The guys are working hard.” The Rebels allowed only one goal each in wins over Covington Catholic and Pendleton County, which improved the record to 12-4-1 overall entering play Sept. 30. That followed a stretch in which the Rebels allowed two goals or more in five straight games, including three in a one-goal win over district rival Ryle. Boone has posted three shutouts this season and allowed 31 goals in 17 matches. The concern has been inexperience in the back line growing into roles. A veteran defense had four straight shutouts in the postseason in 2012 but many of those players graduated. “Communication is key,” Browning said. “For the most part, we lost all our guys in the back and these guys are new in the position on varsity. Having those guys know where each other is supposed to be, sometimes that takes a little longer. Last year they jelled pretty quickly and improved greatly at the end of the year. We want to help them improve and they have.” The offense is still the best in the Ninth Region, averaging 3.5 goals per game, roughly equal to Newport Central Catholic. Boone was the highest scoring team in the region in 2012.

Senior Evan O’Hara, a returning all-state player, has 19 goals and seven assists. Haven Borkowski has increased his output this year, averaging 13 goals and six assists. Senior Brett Mayberry had eight goals and 11 assists. Michael Carroll has nine assists and Brent Rice eight. “Offensively, it’s been our strength,” Browning said. “We’ve scored a lot of goals. We’ve got some balance. The guys all get along really well. They hang out outside of soccer practice and that makes them a tight-knit group. That makes chemistry stronger on the field as well.” Boone was scheduled to have senior night Oct. 1, then

hosts St. Henry Oct. 3, Thursday, in its final home game of the regular season. “St. Henry is a top team every year,” Browning said. “Every time we play them, it’s a quality game. Steve Hahn gets them prepared and ready to play and he does a great job. We have our work cut out for us. We’ve played tough teams all season so it’s nothing we haven’t been used to already.” Seniors are Robert Asseo, Auston Blytone, Emmanuel Boateng, Michael Carroll, Jesse Chang, Brian Henderson, Evan O’Hara, Brent Rice, Jose Sanchez and Said Yedali.

Ryle, Boone shoot for big football win By James Weber

UNION — Even when they

haven’t met in a postseason game, they usually play in what could be described as a playoff atmosphere. That will be the setting again when the football programs at Boone County and Ryle high schools get together Friday, Oct. 4, for homecoming in Union. Getting a big win will be on the minds of the players involved, as both teams are battling through uncharacteristic struggles so far in 2013. Ryle is 1-5, and Boone is 0-6, and both teams lost their first Class 6A district game last week. Ryle is coming off a 46-7 defeat at Simon Kenton. “I don’t consider us struggling because our guys are playing as hard as they can,” Ryle head coach Bryson Warner said. “They don’t give up, and they won’t. Our team has went out and fought, even against Simon Kenton. We did some good things in the second half.” Ryle has 15 sophomores on its roster and has had some growing pains this season. Ryle has averaged 10 points per game, and after a 17-10 win over Cooper in the season opener, has not scored more than two touchdowns in any contest. “We just have to get our young guys acting like veterans,” Warner said. “We’ve made mistakes that we need to have corrected. We have to go out and execute at a high level. They come to practice every day with a great work ethic. They want to get better and improve. They are a lot of fun to coach. We’re working hard as a staff and they’re working hard to get

things corrected.” Boone’s stats are similar. The Rebels scored 28 in a loss to Lafayette and 27 combined in the other five defeats. Warner said the passing game will be key for both teams. Boone averages 124 yards per game on the ground and 64 in the air. “We have to throw the ball effectively,” Warner said. “We’re not going to line up and run everybody over. We’ve done that in the past but we’re not that team. We have good receivers and Ryan Woolf has been outstanding at running back. “We have to force them to pass the football. They want to spread you out and run the football but we have to shut that down and force them to pass.” Defeats aside, the Rebels and Raiders tend to bring out the best in each other. “Boone’s new coach (Jeff Griffith) is a fantastic coach,” Warner said. “He has them improving every week. They’re starting to buy in to what he does. We’re looking forward to great competition. It’s a big rivalry. It’s our homecoming and we’re looking forward to a great crowd. Both teams highly respect each other.”

Ryle golf on the upswing Raiders beat CovCath in region Gannett News Service

Covington Catholic had all four of its players whose scores counted in its team total shoot 77 or less, but Ryle had the top two individual finishers and that was good enough for the Raiders to break a threeyear streak of runner-up finishes to CovCath in the Region 7 boys’ golf tournament. Ryle junior Logan Gamm fired a 1-under par 71, which was good for individual medalist, and junior teammate Zach Adams shot a 72 to help the Raiders edge CovCath, 307308, for the team title on Monday, Sept. 30, at Boone Links Golf Course, which played at 6,700 yards over the Brookview and Lakeview sides. Both teams advance to the state tournament, which will be played Oct. 8-9 at Bowling Green Country Club. “It’s nice to break the

curse,” said Ryle coach Jonathan Ehlen. “Now the boys realize every shot counts. Everyone really grinded it out on every single shot. We’ve had a rollercoaster ride of a season.” Ryle also got an 80 from its No. 1 player Austin Squires, who is also a junior, and an 84 from Davis McNichol for its team total. Austin Zapp fired an 85, which didn’t count in the team total. “It’s nice that I have five guys that at any time can exchange with each other,” said Ehlen. “Everyone asks, ‘Who is my No. 1 guy?’ and it’s a tough answer which is a good problem.” The Ryle High School golf team has enjoyed a successful season. The Raiders won the Grant County Invitational for the second straight year, Sept. 21, at Eagle Creek Country Club. Austin Squires was medalist with a score of 66, followed by teammates Logan Gamm at 68, Zachary Adams at 70, Davis McNichol at 75 and Austin Zapp at 78. Two days lat-

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Scouts clean up

On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Cub Scouts from Pack 833 participated in the Boone County Trash for Cash program. The scouts, ranging in age from 6 to 13, picked up trash along Chambers Road and Walton Community Park. This event not only helps raise money to fund activities for the scouts throughout the year, but more importantly it teaches the boys a very valuable message at a pivotal age about the importance of community service. It is the responsibility of every citizen in our community to keep our town beautiful. Participating in this program gives

the scouts the opportunity to see firsthand the amount of trash that is carelessly tossed from car windows while driving down the road or dropped in the playgrounds that the kids of our community play in. The boys learned how disgusting littering is no matter where it is done. This invaluable lesson was only emphasized for the boys as they picked up the trash from their own community where they live and play. This invaluable experience taught the scouts that providing services to our community helps to keep our neighborhoods clean. Jeffrey Martin Walton

Reform provisions What do you want from me? often overshadowed Looking for a sure-fire way to ignite a heated political discussion? Say the words Affordable Care Act, health care reform or Obamacare. The changes to the health care system set in motion by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, have sparked some of the most heated political debates this century. And while healthy political rhetoric is part of what makes this country great, the debate has, for the most part, overshadowed the substance of the law. So, I’d ask that you set your political feelings aside as you read these next few paragraphs as a consumer, someone who uses the health care system from time to time. First, most people who already have health insurance coverage, either from a plan offered by an employer, Medicare or Medicaid, will not see a whole lot change. You may get a notice from your employer informing you of your right to coverage. Your plans may have open enrollment, similar to how they do each fall. But, if you are one of the almost 15 percent of Kentuckians who don’t have coverage, you’ll have new options. The main one being that you’ll be able to purchase insurance through what’s called a health care exchange. Basically, an exchange is a marketplace. Insurers offer their plans and you go, either online or by phone, and select the plan that’s best for your needs and budget. It does get a bit muddy here: Some states, including Kentucky, have decided to run their own insurance exchanges. Others, including Ohio and Indiana, will have their residents purchase insurance on the federal exchange. Kentucky’s exchange is called kynect. You can find it online at http://www.kynect.comor by calling 1-855-4KYNECT. Enrolling in an insurance plan, particularly if you’re not used to it, can be confusing. Fortunately, you can access help from insurance brokers and navigators. Details on who can perform each function are still shaping up. If you choose to use the professionals’ help or enroll on your own, you’ll need to gather some information in advance. rec-

ommends that you: » Learn the basics about different types of plans, such as health maintenance Lynne M. organizations, Saddler preferred provider orCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST ganizations COLUMNIST and catastrophic plans. » Make a list of questions that you have. » Gather paperwork that can prove your income and identity—this includes your Social Security Number, pay stubs, etc. » Gather paperwork about your current insurance coverage, including details on how much you currently pay in premiums; how much your employer contributes and coverage available to you. » Determine your budget. What can you afford to spend on health care? The wheels of change in the health care industry are in motion. We know that a number of Northern Kentuckians lack health insurance coverage, and will benefit from the new options offered because of the Affordable Care Act. October 1 is approaching quickly. Please take some time to learn how health care reform will impact your family. Lynne M. Saddler is the district director of health for the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Relationships are tricky, to say the least. Navigating moods, rough patches, and the general ups and downs of life (and that’s just with your children) can leave you frazzled. But what about the other relationships in your life: the spouse, coworker, friends and family? Attempting to get along in these situations can leave a person wondering, “What do they want from me?” Too often, we make relationships in our lives more complicated than they need to be. We tend to “think for the other person.” Assuming we know what they want from us and feeling frustrated, because we can’t always muster the resources to give it. We assume the spouse would be happier if we lost weight, so we join the gym and the weight-loss group. We think the children would be happier with more “things” so we work overtime five days a week. As for the co-workers, neighbors and friends, we often assume they need our “two cents,” so we freely give it, telling them step-by-step


how to maneuver their struggles (yet we can’t seem to maneuver our own) and feeling exhausted and frustrated when we find they didn’t heed our wellthought-out

advice. And what about God? What does he want from me? Make no mistake, God does want me to be obedient, to walk in his ways, and to witness to others about him. Yet, above all those things, what God wants more than anything is my heart. And with my heart comes my time and attention. The Bible tells us that God doesn’t look down from heaven to see if we are living righteously or not: “The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.” (Psalm 14:2) The Lord watches and waits for us to seek him. Interestingly, when I com-

pare what God wants with all the other relationships in my life, I find what they all really crave is the same: my heart. And with my heart comes my time and attention. Fifteen minutes playing football with my son goes a lot further than a new pair of Nike socks. Fifteen minutes playing Barbies with my 5year old, means more than a new Barbie. Fifteen minutes listening to my 12-year old talk about horses means more than a new riding helmet. (Well, I may be pushing it on that last one.) However, one thing’s for sure, “You will show me the path of life; in your presence if fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11) Today, experience the fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore simply by spending time with God and those you love.

By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Family, friends and fans of country music legend Kenny Price gathered Sept. 14 at the U.S. 42 White Castle to honor the Boone County native as a portion of U.S. 42 was dedicated in his name. Folks and honored guests – including Nick Clooney, Colleen Sharp Murray and Dick Murgatroyd – were welcomed to the tune of Price’s hits “Sheriff of Boone County” and “Walking on New Grass.” Price’s son, Kenny, said the family is honored to have a section of U.S. 42 – from I-75 to Gunpowder Road – is now named the Kenny Price Memorial Highway. “When each of us were born, we were created by God to bring honor to our family, our city and our state,” Price said. “For the 56 years of my dad’s life people around him knew he loved his family and his city of Florence. He was proud to say ‘I’m from Kentucky.’ With the dedication of this stretch of road, Kentucky is saying: ‘We’ll always remember you.’” State Sen. John Schickel sponsored the legislation after a Price family friend, Harry Sparrow, suggested the idea. Nicknamed the “Round Mound of Sound,” Price had 34

singles hit the charts. He also was host of WLW’s “Midwestern Hayride” and a cast member of the popular television show “Hee Haw.” He died in 1987. Recently, Price was inducted into the Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame. At the ceremony unveiling the signage for the memorial highway, several of Kenny’s friends shared memories. Colleen Sharp Murray, who worked with Price on the WLW’s “Midwestern Hayride,” recalled his humble nature. “He could do anything,” she said. “He was remarkably talented. When prosperity hit, everybody thought he’d move to Nashville or Indian Hill at least. They never moved off LaCresta Drive (in Florence).” Nick Clooney, another friend and regular on WLW, gave a touching tribute. Clooney said that Price was one of “the best singers” he’s ever heard. “He sang with great heart and great intelligence,” he said. “All who drive past this sign may not know the name, but they will ask and someone will be here to say, ‘Kenny Price was a great singer, a great Kentuckian and a great man.’ No one ever dies who is remembered. Kenny Price will live forever.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Rita offers potato salad, pepper recipes We were in Pennsylvania this past weekend for the Mother Earth News Fair, where I was a presenter. My topic was Bible herbs and foods for vibrant health and longevity, and it was a well received presentation with lots of interaction Rita with the Heikenfeld particiRITA’S KITCHEN pants. I had several different kinds of onions on hand to talk about since onions are mentioned in the Book of Numbers and one of the most healthful veggies. One lady mentioned that onions planted next to cabbage make good garden companions, keeping both healthy. Then another person spoke up about potatoes. “Plant them next to corn and they’ll both do

great,” he said. Strangely enough, that’s how we planted our onions this year, not having a clue they were good for each other. Maybe that’s why the onions we dug up for this German potato salad were so tasty. And next year we’ll plant the potatoes next to the corn.

Oktoberfest German potato salad This is as close as I can get to the recipe of my German mother-inlaw, Clara. Easy and really good. I used red potatoes for this recipe. If you use baking potatoes, which contain more starch, they will soak up more of the dressing.

8 slices bacon (I used thick sliced), cut into little pieces then sauteed (save drippings) 1 heaping cup chopped onion 1-2 ribs celery, chopped (if they’re real long, use one, more can be added if you

like) 2 tablespoons flour 2 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar or to taste 1 cup water 1 ⁄3 cup sugar or to taste Salt and pepper About 8 cups sliced cooked potatoes (cook, then slice into 1⁄4-inch pieces)

Cook onion and celery in about 4 tablespoons bacon drippings until tender, but don’t let onion brown. Celery may still be crisp. Sprinkle flour over and blend. Mixture may be a bit lumpy. Add vinegar and water and cook, stirring until bubbly and slightly thick. Stir in sugar, cook about 5 minutes or so. Stir in potatoes and bacon, heat through, stirring to coat potatoes. Season. Serve warm or room temperature. May be made a couple days ahead.

For the Eastern Hills Journal and Price Hill Press readers who remembered buying these at local delis. This recipe is over 30 years old and is from a Farm Journal cookbook, so it should be authentic. You can cut it in half. And does anybody besides me remember calling bell peppers “mangoes?!” 12 whole green bell peppers 4 quarts water 1 ⁄4 cup salt 2 medium heads cabbage, finely shredded 1 ⁄4 cup salt 4 oz. pimentos, diced 51⁄4 cups sugar 6 cups water 6 cups cider vinegar 11⁄2 teaspoons whole cloves 5 sticks cinnamon 11⁄2 tablespoons whole allspice 11⁄2 teaspoons salt

Slice tops off peppers and remove seeds. Soak overnight in solution of 4 quarts water and 1⁄4 cup salt. Drain. Combine cabbage and 1⁄4 cup salt and let stand overnight. Drain well. Mix pimentos and cabbage. Fill peppers. Tie tops on with thread. Put in 8-quart crock. Combine sugar, water, vinegar and spices in big pan. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Pour hot solution over peppers and weigh them down. Marinate at least 1 week at room temperature. To serve, cut peppers in quarters.

Readers want to know

Fluffy meringue: “If a little bit of egg yolk gets into my whites when I make meringue, and if I remove it, will the whites

still whip up?” This is a tricky one. If there’s just a teeny bit of yolk and you can get it all out, the whites seem to beat up fine. But I would only do that if I had no other eggs. And it may not work in all recipes. Egg whites must be completely fat-free to whip properly. And the bowl you whip them in should be, too. When in doubt, wipe out the bowl with a bit of vinegar to remove any traces of fat, rinse and dry. You’ll get better volume with room temperature whites.

national policies and procedures for strengthening the safety and security of commercial aviation. The organization considers one of its most important roles to be the development and delivery of critical training programs for airport police agencies.

Program, managed the airport community’s post 9-11 law enforcement response, initiated a national aviation law enforcement benchmarking project, put in place a vital real time electronic intelligence sharing network for airport criminal investigators and an administrative information sharing network, helped local agencies develop and share model best practices programs, and assisted with the development and integration of public policy related to aviation law enforcement.

There are lots of kittens and cats still waiting for adoptive homes. Delilah (14713), a brown tabby, and Tori (14686), a muted tortoiseshell kitten, are both spayed, 3-month-old females. They have been in foster care and are well socialized and love to play. They would do well adopted together or separately. Their reduced adoption fee includes their spay/neuter surgery, microchip, shots, rabies vaccines and testing to make sure they are free of feline diseases. Adoption fees for adult cats are always waived for approved adopters. Call the Boone County Animal Shelter at 586-5285 for more information.PROVIDED

“We always say an airport is like a small city and Chief Murphy and his department do a tremendous job of ensuring the safety of the people who come to and from the airport,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of CVG. “We are proud that a prestigious organization such as ALEAN has recognized what a top-notch professional he is, and I would expect him to make immediate contributions to ALEAN’s mission.” Started in 1988, ALEAN works to influence national and inter-


Mareka Miller of Alexandria wants everyone to get in on “the big fight.” No boxing gloves or referees are required. The battleground is Northern Kentucky. The enemy is cancer. “If we find the cure for one, then that will lead to the cure for all cancers,” she said. “That’s what the American Cancer Society is about – the big fight against all cancers.” Miller, who has been a volunteer with the American Cancer Society of Northern Kentucky for six years, said everyone should take the opportunity to stop by the Fort Mitchell office to learn about volunteer opportunities. The society will host an informational open house 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 297 Buttermilk Pike. Those interested in volunteer opportunities, including patient support and Relay For

Life, can visit anytime during those hours. The society’s MidSouth Division community representative Kila Hanrahan said volunteers will be on hand to answer questions. “We are a volunteerdriven organization,” Hanrahan said. “Our volunteers are the heart of what we do, we couldn’t accomplish anything without them.” According to Hanrahan there’s an opportunity for everyone to help out. “We even have children on the Relay For Life committees who help plan activities for kids,” she said. “We offer great ways for entire families to get involved.” Ron Beard of Wilder started volunteering six months ago just because. “I wanted something to do,” the retired Covington Catholic High School substitute teacher and football coach said. “I do it for selfish reasons. It’s my way of giving back, but it’s also my way of keeping an old man busy.” He coordinators Road to Recovery, a program that organizes volunteers who can provide transportation to and from ap-

pointments for cancer patients. “This is a big need,” Beard said “Just today (Sept. 26) we coordinated 30 rides.” That was just enough to meet the need, he said. There have been times, however, the need cannot be met, like when 84 rides were needed, but only 67 volunteers were available. “There are growing needs (in Northern Kentucky),” Hanrahan said. “This outreach to volunteers is a good way for people to ... see our office and what they can do. A lot of people don’t realize there’s a local office; we’re here in their own back yard.” According to both Beard and Miller, volunteering with the society is very rewarding. “The feeling you get inside when someone says, ‘Thanks,’ means everything to me,” Beard said. “It makes you feel good.” Miller, who became involved in honor of her uncle and now her father who both had cancer, agreed.

Residents urged to reduce risk of rabies by avoiding bats Several Northern Kentucky families have gotten a rude awakening this summer: They awoke to find bats flying around their bedrooms, hanging on curtains or lying on a blanket. Beyond the initial shock of realizing a wild animal had entered their homes, these families are finding out that they are at risk for rabies.

The connection between bats in a home and rabies is due to three factors. First, bats are commonly infected with the rabies virus. Ninety percent of rabies fatalities in the United States in recent years were attributed to bat exposures, and 5 to 10 percent of all bats tested for rabies in Ken-

tucky are positive. Second, bats have tiny, sharp teeth and often leave no bite marks, making it difficult to determine whether someone has been bitten; thus, a person who is sleeping, is under the influence of medication or alcohol, or a child cannot be sure whether he/she has been bitten.

Third, if a person is exposed to the virus and left untreated, rabies causes neurological disease and death. The rabies vaccine is nearly 100 percent effective at treating the virus, but involves four rabies shots and one antibody shot over a period of two weeks.

wastes that need to be removed from their property. Composting is a simple practice that is beneficial to the environment and at the same time allows property owners to get rid of these different yard wastes in an effective manner. Composting yard and kitchen wastes also reduces the volume of material going into landfills. Yard and kitchen wastes comprise more than 20 percent of the waste generated each year. By composting these wastes, you help reduce disposal costs and extend the usefulness of landfills. This increases the return on your tax dollars. Weeds free of seed

heads and residues like vines and pruned limbs make a good addition to a compost pile. When mowing your lawn, it is not necessary to remove grass clippings if you follow proper lawn management practices. However, if you decide to compost grass clippings, mix them with other materials like leaves or brush. They are a good source of “green” material, which is high in nitrogen to feed the beneficial micro-organisms that break down the organic materials into finished compost. In order to speed up the composting process, build a pile or bin 3-5 feet tall, wide and deep. Be sure air can get to the

Diocese supports domestic violence shelter Women’s Crisis Center was recently awarded $2,500 from the 2013 Diocesan Parish Appeal to which 10,700 parishioners donated. The grant is in support of its emergency shelter program for victims and their children of domestic violence in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties. The goal of the emergency shelter program is to empower survivors of domestic violence to realize a healthy self-image, become self-confident, and lead self-sufficient

lives. The objective is to provide effective timely crisis intervention, advocacy, and a range of other supportive services in order to prevent further victimization. Residents receive basic necessities and share responsibility for household chores, menu planning and meal preparation. Personal safety plans are developed by all, and residential clients work with counselors to devise goal plans to facilitate establishing secure, safe housing arrangements after leaving shel-

ter. “We are extremely grateful to the Diocese of Covington and their appeal donors for supporting our shelter,” said Marsha Croxton, Women’s Crisis Center executive director. “We are truly thankful for the partnership we have forged throughout the years. Countless individuals in our community are served due to the generosity of the diocesan family.” For more information please visit

sides of the pile. Put the pile directly on the ground, so earthworms and beneficials can come up into the pile from the soil. Don’t put the pile in a low, wet area. Sun or shade works for composting. Keep the pile moist but not soggy wet. Provide a good mixture of “brown” vs. “green”

ingredients. The more often you turn the pile, the quicker the compost will be ready to use. You can compost many kitchen scraps such as fruit and vegetable peelings and cores, faded flowers, coffee grounds, tea bags and crushed eggshells. However, avoid cooked foods,

meat, bones, fat or dairy products because they attract animals. Also avoid using walnut leaves, bark, husks, shells, etc., since they contain a harmful substance called juglone. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, had a nickel for every time someone leaned over the counter and whispered, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. It’s a question he’s heard countless times in his 45-year career. He has seen families torn apart by the anguish of memory loss and mental decline, a silent condition that threatens the independent lifestyle that seniors hold so dearly.

For years, pharmacists told disappointed patients that memory loss was inevitable. A new, drug-free cognitive formula may help improve mind, mood, and memory in as little as 30 days.

Question: What’s so great about compost? Is it easy to make? If so, how do I do it? Answer: To the avid gardener, compost is “black gold,” because there’s nothing better than homemade compost to Mike improve Klahr clay or HORTICULTURE sandy CONCERNS soils. According to Rick Durham, UK Extension horticulture professor, when you compost leaves, other yard debris and kitchen waste, a microbial process converts these items into a more usable organic amendment. You can use finished compost to improve soil structure in gardens and landscape beds. Compost also helps the soil hold nutrients and reduces erosion and water runoff. You also can use finished compost as a mulch to help reduce weed problems, moderate soil temperatures and conserve soil moisture. As the fall season progresses, many folks obtain large amounts of leaves and other yard

Plan now for money in retirement

The recent economic recession has many people nervous about whether they have planned or are planning well enough for retirement. If you’re worried about not having enough money to last through your golden years, you’re not alone. With life expectancies longer than ever, six out of 10 baby boomers fear outliving their retirement funds more than they fear dying. While Social Security is one source of retirement income, it shouldn’t

be your only one. Currently, Social Security replaces about 40 percent of the averDiane age wage Mason earner’s EXTENSION income, NOTES with higher income earners receiving less of a percentage of their income. After retirement you’ll probably need 70 to 90 percent of your pre-re-

tirement income to live comfortably. Take a look at what you think you will be making prior to retirement and calculate how much money you may need with this in mind. This may seem like a monumental task, but you can do several things help build your retirement savings. Track your current expenses, and determine whether they are fixed or flexible. Fixed expenses are usually monthly, non-negotiable expenses and include items such as

rent, mortgage payments, utility costs and car payments. Flexible expenses are those over which you have more control and can include groceries, travel, eating out and entertainment expenses. Track them for at least a month. Identifying where your money goes will help you develop a realistic budget that can help you either save for or stretch your retirement dollars. While analyzing your money, also think about where you will be living

after retirement. Factor that information into your decisions about the amounts of money you may need. Consider ways to maximize your money. Depending on the amount of your assets, personal risk tolerance, retirement goals and anticipated length of retirement, you may consider a balanced financial portfolio that includes certificates of deposits, money market accounts, stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Before you invest, be sure that

Passenger, cargo traffic up at airport The number of local passengers using Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) have been up for six straight months, a key indicator of increasingly positive momentum for the region’s largest commercial airport. The airport also has experienced year-overyear increases in its cargo traffic, as well as concession and parking revenues. For the sixth consecutive month, CVG has experienced year-over-year growth in its origin, or local, passengers. Origin passengers in the month of July 2013 increased 6 percent while in August 2013 traffic increased approximately 5 percent compared to origin passengers in the prior year. Overall, year-to-date, origin traffic is 2.4 percent



higher compared to 2012. “All of the passenger, cargo and revenue metrics are moving in the right direction and showing a very positive story of reinvention at CVG,” said James Huff, chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board. At the height of the airport’s passenger volume in 2005, approximately 75 percent of its passengers were connecting through the airport on their way to another destination, with only 25 percent percent of its passengers originating from CVG.

After the merger between Delta and Northwest airlines and flights decreased, the profile of the CVG passenger changed. In 2012, approximately 70 percent were local travelers coming through CVG’s front door, with connecting passengers accounting for 30 percent of the traffic. The percentage of local passengers is expected to increase through 2013. “We have invested in serving the local traveling public and those investments are paying off,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of CVG. “We’ve placed an emphasis on diversifying our carriers, our routes and our fares and it has made our airport very appealing to the region’s travelers. The airport’s long-term

success is directly connected to growing our local passenger base.” CVG has also experienced growth in its cargo traffic. Buoyed by DHL’s growing presence at the airport, cargo increased approximately 10 percent year-over-year through August 2013. The increase in cargo helps CVG keep its landing fees stable, which is attractive to prospective carriers. “The airport has created an incredible partnership with DHL that has led DHL to invest $105 million in capital projects since 2009 and expand from 1,600 to 2,300 employees,” McGraw said. “Cargo accounts for about 47 percent of the airport’s landed weight. More than 90 percent of everything shipped via DHL in the

Americas travels through CVG. That is a tremendous advantage for our airport.” May’s addition of Frontier Airlines and this month’s launch of Ultimate Air Shuttle are two of the more noteworthy enhancements driving up CVG’s metrics. CVG continues to be the premier airport in a three-state region, offering more than 170 daily departures to 47 non-stop cities – more than any other airport in the region – and the only airport in the three states with direct service to Europe. Huff said CVG’s people have played an important part as well. “One of the most powerful reasons we are growing is because of the outstanding customer service passengers receive at CVG,” he said.

you are comfortable with the risk and terms of the investment. Many of the options that have the potential for the biggest returns can also result in some of the largest losses in principal. Remember if you are close to retirement or retired, it will be harder to recover from a significant loss of principal.
