HEBRON — Sunshine streams through Brenda Abdoyan’s light and airy – and just recently opened – Petersburg Road art studio and gallery on a bright October morning. New to Northern Kentucky, Abdoyan, who describes herself as eclectic mixed media artist, has opened The Art Studio by Bajidoo, a gallery, studio and gift shop in Hebron, where she’ll displays and sells creations of Kentucky artists and will offer a variety of classes. A grand opening is planned 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at the shop, 1892 Petersburg Road, Hebron. Parking is available behind the building. The opening will feature drawings for three baskets featuring supplies, free classes and original art or prints. Abdoyan, who works in a number of mediums including henna, most recently hails from San Francisco, but “my honest answer to where I’m from is pretty much nowhere.” A self-described “Navy brat,” Abdoyan was born in Japan and, as a result moved around – a lot. “So we were everywhere and I liked that,” she said. “I had no problem with that because I was the weirdo at

Baby delivered in back of life squad By Stephanie Salmons

HEBRON — Callie Mann is only a month old, but the newborn already knows how to make a dramatic entrance. Callie, the daughter of Kyle and Christine Mann of Hebron, was born Sept. 10 in the back of an ambulance that had to stop

for her arrival near the intersection of Ky. 20 and Ky. 237 as her parents were en route to the hospital. Dressed in pink on a sunny afternoon in Hebron, she is quiet and dozing in her car seat as her parents, and a first responder who delivered her, discuss her arrival from the Hebron Fire Protection District Station

“I’ll tell you one thing,” Christine says with a laugh, “I don’t remember much.” According to Kyle, Christine had been to the doctor earlier that day who told her she was “nowhere close.” She returned home from shopping a little af-

school because I was drawing all the time.” Abdoyan said she didn’t mind relocating because if she didn’t make friends at one place, there was always the chance for that to happen in a new place. “And it didn’t really happen and that turned into lots and lots of drawing and that formed my confidence in my art,” she said. “So the right things happen for the right reasons even though they seem weird at the time.” It was because of Hebron decorative artist Karen Marshall that Abdoyan, who now lives in Hebron herself, landed in Kentucky for the second time in her life. The two became acquaintSee GALLERY, Page A2

ed when Marshall contacted Abdoyan about the bangle bracelets she makes. After talking for a while, Marshall volunteered to help Abdoyan at a 2010 trade show near Chicago. Now Abdoyan “is like a daughter to me,” she said. “I was going to open a studio, no doubt about it. That’s what I was going to do,” Abdoyan said. It was something she’s wanted to do for years because she wanted to teach. She was discussing the studio with Marshall while living in San Francisco, “just an incredibly expensive place to be.” Abdoyan knew if she did this, she wouldn’t be able to do it there. It was a “make or

break thing,” Abdoyan said. “So I decided if I was going to bet on me, I was going to do all or nothing,” said Abdoyan, who had previously been a business analyst. “So I took what I had in my retirement and said if this is really what I’m supposed to do, it’ll be evident one way or another. “It’ll be the first day of the awesome life I always wanted or it will be the first day of the life I actually got,” she laughed.

her into the ambulance. “The baby came quickly after that,” firefighter and paramedic Josh Bosse said. Kyle said the ambulance “made it a mile and a half down the road to (Ky.) 237 and (Ky.) 20 and they pull off the side of the road and said ‘we’re not going any further right now.’” Christine says she knew the baby was coming. “I didn’t want to think that, but I knew we weren’t making it,” she said. “That’s why I told him to call 911 – because I knew it was going to be them or him on the side of the road.” “I prefer it to be them,” Kyle said with a chuckle. For Bosse, and fellow responders Craig Smith, Scott Bellas and Alex

Fish, this was the first time they delivered a baby. “I think everybody was nervous,” he said, but things “went flawless on our end.” They fell back on their training “and trying to remember everything we’ve been taught through the years,” he said. “And it went as textbook as it can go.” Christine was due Sept. 23 but was scheduled to be induced on Sept. 16. From the time her water broke to the time of Callie’s delivery, not even 20 minutes had lapsed, Bosse said. “It was a surprise for all of us because we didn’t know if we were having a boy or girl,” Kyle said. “That was a bit of surprise too, for us to find out. In

fact, we almost forgot to ask.” While it wasn’t an ideal scenario, would they change it? “I don’t know,” Christine said. “Maybe not. Everything went smoothly. I mean, it’s her birth story. Would I want to change it? No, because she made it here fine. Was it agony for that period of time? Yeah.” Kyle calls the birth “surreal.” “Especially at the end and we’re at the hospital,” he said. “We’re laying there ... and everybody had left and it’s just the three of us and I stopped and I’m just like ‘Did that seriously just happen?’ It just didn’t seem real. It took probably a couple of days for it to even really sink in.”


said. “The receipt ended up being as tall as Priscilla and the bag about as wide as me. “We exchanged email addresses, hugged and remarked at how we both felt we were destined to meet that evening,” she said. Ball later asked Shanks if she would be interested in going with her to the center to do professional fittings for the women there and giving them each a new bra. Shanks was interested. But Ball went farther with her philanthropy – she started Velocity Bike and Bean’s Cups of Kindness campaign. For a $5 donation, the campaign will provide a brand new bra and professional fit-

ting to each woman at the center. Those who donate will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Dillard’s gift card. “Anything that helps our women improve themselves or feel like the community is behind them, I’m 100 percent behind it,” said center director Anita Prater. Ball said it’s likely they’ll have to go back for additional undergarments because those on the clearance rack “were in rather odd sizes,” but the center will get all of the bras. Donations can be made through the end of October by visiting Velocity at 7560 Burlington Pike, or online at

Shanks about the Brighton Recovery Center for Women in Florence and that she thought the facility would appreciate having new undergarments. “With Breast Cancer Awareness month coming up, I saw a wonderful, and extremely affordable, opportunity to do my part,” Ball said. As Shanks helped her ring up “armfuls of bras,” Shanks mentioned she had Dillard’s gift cards of her own that she wanted to donate toward the purchase. “I walked out of the store with 50 bras,” Ball

Author writes book about conversations with God

BURLINGTON — Deborah Turley of Burlington says she “grew up in church” but she ran from God because “I didn’t think he really cared.” That’s not the case anymore and she’s recently published a book sharing her own personal conversations with God and how others can have a similar reTurley lationship. “Can You Hear His Whisper? Will You Let Him Love You?” was released early last month. “It’s about your relationship with God and how he wants to love you and

how to be able to let him do that,” Turley said. She says she talks to people who say God doesn’t talk to them like

that. “I’m like, ‘he talks every day,’” said Turley. “Why can’t you hear him? It’s because most people usually go to God with all of their problems but they don’t want to find out what he has to say.” Turley, who has been working on the book for about four years, said she at first didn’t want to because of the judgment made when telling others “you talk to God and God talks to you.” “They think you’re crazy.” So after asking “Lord, are you sure about this?” Turley says she was encouraged. “It’s not just about coming to him and crying out for your need, but he wants to be your best friend,” she said. Turley says God

THINK explains unexplainable By Amy Scalf


Things that go bump in the night don’t scare Jon Huber. For one thing, he’s a magician, so he understands sleight of hand and creating illusions. He knows how those things work. As leader of The Hauntings Investigators of Northern Kentucky, or THINK, Huber is also a paranormal investigator, which he’ll explain is different than a ghost hunter. “Mostly, people want you to come in and say,

‘This is a ghost,’” he said. “We don’t do that. We try to do the opposite. We verify what’s happening, and then come up with factual reasons why those things are happening.” “We’re two skeptics,” said Tony Trudeau, Huber’s partner in THINK. “Ninety-nine percent of the time you can explain weird things that are happening. There are normal explanations for things that people think are paranormal.” Huber and Trudeau have each had personal experiences that aren’t easily explained. Like when Trudeau

heard mysterious footsteps in his home or when his child’s toys would make sounds even though they were turned off. They actually don’t have an explanation for the toys, but Huber said most eerie sounds “are noises houses make,” like water pressure in pipes. Neighbors and animals outside also contribute to some unusual sounds. “I haven’t really seen anything that made me say that there is something out there that can’t be explained,” Trudeau said. “I’ve heard things.”

doesn’t scream, he whispers. “What happens when the noise gets loud? You shut down,” she said. “But if there’s a whisper, you tune in.” Many people, she said, are crying out for God, but they don’t take time to “realize he’s really there.” “He wants a conversa-

tion with you,” Turley said. “Why are we created? So we can live our own lives? There’s a purpose. What is yours? Who better to ask than the one that created you in the first place.” Turley, a Wheeling, W.Va., native, said the reaction to the book has been positive.

Girl Scouts looking for volunteers By Melissa Stewart

ERLANGER — Ask Ruby Webster why it’s important to volunteer with the Girl Scouts and she has one firm answer – “The girls.” According to Webster, center director for the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council, without the volunteers “we cannot reach or service all the girls who would like to join.” So, the Licking Valley Cluster – including Boone,

Apples or Oranges?

Campbell, and Kenton counties – are looking for volunteers. Within this cluster alone, Webster said, there is the potential for more than 39,000 girls – ages 5 to 17 – to join. “We are only able to serve approximately 5,000 through traditional troop experiences, shortterm programs, day camp and outreach,” she said. “In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society. Volunteers make a valuable difference in the lives of girls, while enriching their own life in the process.” Volunteer opportunities include: » Troop leaders who guide a group of girls through the Girl Scout leadership experience. » Series volunteers who coordinate and plan a short-term experiences (involving the arts, science, etc.) based on needs of girls. » Property maintenance volunteers who who

give up a day to help indoor and outdoor painting, cutting tree limbs, garbage disposal, weed and small brush trimming, etc. This year’s maintenance day is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at the local office, 607, Watson Road, Erlanger. » Administrative volunteers are needed to assist with various clerical duties including making copies, inputting data and helping with parent nights. Webster said anyone, man or woman,18 or older, can volunteer. The only requirements are that they pass a background check and complete one twohour classroom training and two additional online trainings. Mary Stephens of Walton, who has volunteered with the Girl Scouts for eight years, said volunteering with the organization has been a great opportunity for her. “I enjoy working with the girls and watching them experience things they may not otherwise get to experience,” she said. Stephens, who was a Girl Scout growing up, currently serves as a Boone County troop leader and is involved in other areas within the organization. “I like how the Girl Scouts offer things just for girls to encourage them to be best girls and women they can be. They learn how to be good leaders.” Stephens said she has learned how to be a better leader, as well. “I’ve grown in my experience as a volunteer.” To register as a volunteer for the Girl Scouts, visit

Field & Stream outdoor store opening in Crescent Springs By Chris Mayhew


A Field & Stream under construction in Crescent Springs will open Nov. 1. THE COMMUNITY RECORDER/CHRIS MAYHEW

public services director, said Field & Stream moving in means there are no vacant buildings in the center. Additional out-lots and space for additions to the existing buildings in the center are still available, he said. The city expects people will be drawn to Field & Stream from a wide area because the closest Cabela’s is in Louisville and the closest Bass Pro Shops is in Forest Park, in northern Hamilton County, he said. “We’re hoping and believing it will be a great success because of the location,” Ripberger said. Field & Stream has invited city officials to a private walk through of the store Tuesday, Oct. 29, before the grand opening for the public Nov. 1. “They’ve totally revamped it,” he said. Phone calls and emails to Dick’s, owner of Field & Stream, were not returned. The Field & Stream

website lists departments customers will find in the store, incuding: hunting gear; gun shop; archery shop;; and camping department. The Field & Stream trademark is owned by American Sports Licensing Inc., and is not associated with Field & Stream magazine, according to the website.

MOTCH Since 1857



The second Field & Stream store in the United States will open in Crescent Springs Friday, Nov. 1. Field & Stream is owned by Dick’s Sporting Goods, and the website lists Cranberry Township, Pa., as the location of the first Field & Stream store. It will compete with Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops. The Crescent Springs store will open in the Buttermilk Towne Center, 520 Clock Tower Way, after renovating a 50,379square-foot space formerly occupied by Ashley Furniture. It is off Anderson Road near Buttermilk Pike. Visconsi Companies Ltd. owns the shopping center. Ashley Furniture was one one of the three original anchor stores from when the center was opened in 2005, said Mayor Jim Collett. The other anchors, Home Depot and Remke Markets, remain. The addition of Field & Stream is welcome news, and is a catalyst to further “kick start” the development, Collett said. “I think it’s turning out to be a really strong development,” he said. Field & Stream, Home Depot, Rempke and LA Fitness – all tenants in the center – are all leaders in their industries, Collett said. George Ripberger, city

Cook picked for Walton Council By Melissa Stewart

WALTON — City Council has appointed Rick Cook to serve on council. The appointment was made at an Oct. 7 special meeting. Cook received four of the five votes, with Councilman Matt Brown abstaining. “It feels great,” said Cook, who has lived in Walton for a year. “It feels good that council has that much faith in me to ap-

Last November, Ballou was named to council after winning a coin toss to resolve a tie with candidate Bobby McDonald for the remaining council seat. After winning the coin flip, Ballou announced

that she would not serve on council. She said she had plans to relocate due to her husband’s new job. In January, however, Ballou started her term. McDonald had also submitted a letter of interest for the seat she recently left vacant. He declined comment on council’s decision to appoint Cook. Cook had submitted letters of interest earlier in the year for the open mayor position, as well as another vacant council position. His application, however, was rejected because he had not been a resident for a full year. Cook moved to Walton from Florence last August. He said he enjoys most the “small town” feel and the fact that Walton is very “tight knit community.” The appointment expires Dec. 31, 2014. Cook said he plans to run in the November 2014 election.

Jones school program helps improve discipline By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — R.A. Jones Middle School is a much different place than when Principal David Rust first started walking its halls six years ago. “When I started in 2007, we had a lot of disciplinary issues,” Rust said. The problem, according to Rust, was a lack of “common” structure. “The students we serve come from all different backgrounds,” he said. The student Bryant population at R.A. Jones represents a wide variety of socioeconomic statuses and about 20 different nationalities. “A lot of our kids come from single parent homes, they’re homeless or they’re in transient – they’ve got a lot to deal with and don’t Rust have a common structure that most have. They need structure and to learn how to act appropriately.” The solution, according to Rust, has been Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), an implementation framework that is designed to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. Since its implementation, Rust said the culture of R.A. Jones has changed dramatically. “We’ve cut the number of office referrals,” he said. “The first year we averaged 12 referrals per day per month. Last year we averaged eight, this (September) we averaged six.” Rust said the behaviors now referred to the office are those that are significantly less belligerent than in previous years. PBIS was piloted in Boone County Schools five years ago. R.A. Jones was one of the first schools to implement the program. All schools in Boone County are now implementing PBIS to varying degrees, said Kathy Reutman Bryant, executive director of student and community services. “PBIS has decreased office discipline referrals, increased instructional time, decreased administrative time spent on discipline issues, increased school safety and improved positive school culture and climate,” she said. According to Bryant, full implementation of PBIS takes

three to five years to accomplish, which includes ongoing training, assessment and data analysis. “In order to effectively and efficiently implement PBIS, school teams of administrators, teachers and support staff commit to a change process, training, developing and revising action plans based on data,” Bryant said. “In addition schools teach, re-teach and re-teach the expectations so they become an integral part of the ongoing school culture.” The process begins with establishment of schoolwide expectations such as be safe, be respectful and be responsible. However, each school’s approach is different and based on student needs. R.A. Jones, for example, started with laying the ground rules for movement within the building, and entering and exiting the building. Rust said students are given specific directions on how to move in the hallways. This minimizes student crowding and bumpiness, therefore minimizing unintentional conflict, he said. More importantly, he said PBIS has allowed schools to “formally and deliberately help kids understand what respect is.” Over the last few years R.A. Jones has added a mentor program to help students with goal setting, an acclimation program for mid-year students to get them up to speed on behavioral expectations, and a “check in and check out” program. The check-in and check-out program is for more at-risk students, about 3 percent to 5 percent of the student body. “We have a pool of adults in the building, each one assigned to one of these kids,” Rust said. “The adult checks in with them in the morning to see how they’re doing. They’re a personal mentor who helps them throughout the day. And they touch base with them at the end of the day. If these students have an issue, then they have someone they can talk to.” The overall goal, despite what need or what school, is to promote and support academic achievement. “The kids are all from different backgrounds and have different expectations from home on how to behave and interact,” Rust said. “We’re getting them all on the same page. Regardless of their background, once our students walk in the building they have a clear set of expectations that allows the school to operate efficiently.” Want to continue the conversation?

Heritage golfer proud to represent school at state By James Weber

Taylor Schwarz had enjoyed playing soccer her entire life. When a bad case of asthma struck her early on in her high school career at Heritage Academy, Schwarz made the difficult decision to abandon her favorite sport and move on to something else. With golf also being a fall sport, the Heritage senior decided to give it a try. Flash forward to 2013, and Schwarz is someone making history at the school. The senior and Florence resident competed in the KHSAA state golf tournament Oct. 11. Although she didn’t qualify for the second round in the two-day tournament, she is in the books as the first Heritage golfer to qualify for the tourney. “It was surreal,” she said. “I never have been in a tournament with that many people. There are more people in that tournament than go to my school. I met some very nice people and I made some friends. It was really cool. To everyone at the school, it was a really big deal. It was really FLORENCE

mind-blowing to be there.” Schwarz took a liking to golf right away during her freshman year. Golf is a sport that needs a lot of practice time to become good, and she

became determined to achieve that. “I needed to play something in this part of the season and I really liked it,” she said. “I practice a lot and I really liked it. I told my dad my sophomore year that I just didn’t want to be good at something, I wanted to be great at it. I want people to see that I really worked hard.” Heritage, with a tiny student population including nine members of Schwarz’s Class of 2014, doesn’t have a girls golf team, but Schwarz was allowed to compete with the boys team. When the girls KHSAA regional came along, though, Schwarz was all on her own except for her supporters. “It’s a challenge every single time,” she said. “It’s not like any other sports because you don’t have a team to fall back on. It was more than just me falling back. I had to play my game in tournaments to get places.” Schwarz is a returning veteran on the Eagles basketball team, which was slated to start practice this week.

Playoff seeds at stake for football teams By James Weber

Things are simpler than normal in Northern Kentucky as the district races reach their final weeks. Here is a look at the playoff picture as all districts will play their final seeding games this weekend: Class 1A, District 4: Beechwood 5-3 (2-0), Bellevue 4-5 (1-1), Ludlow 3-5 (1-1), Dayton 2-6 (0-2). Ludlow plays at Beechwood and Bellevue at Dayton. Beechwood wins the district if it beats the Panthers as expected. A massive Ludlow upset gives the Panthers the title unless Bellevue wins as well, then it would be a three-way tie at the top. A Dayton win over Bellevue likely creates a three-way tie for second, with Bellevue likely to get the two seed if that happens though it would come down to next week’s games. Class 2A, District 5: Gallatin County 6-2 (3-0), Walton-Verona 7-2 (3-1), Carroll County 3-5 (1-2), Owen County 2-7 (1-2), Trimble County 0-8 (0-3).

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Easterling sets good example

Recently, I was in Judge (Kenneth) Easterling’s courtroom. I was so impressed that I felt compelled to share. When he was confronted with a person who repeated acts all over areas, Judge Easterling shamed judges in Hamilton County, Boone County and Frankfort for not doing their duty (mentioning it was all about money). Judge Easterling made

it clear in his courtroom he will deal with this to make each person accountable for their actions. With all the violence around us and around our country, I would hope all judges will take heed and maybe we will have a safer environment for law-abiding citizens. Our young people are growing up in a violent world. We need to change this so they can be law-abiding citizens. Barbara Briede


Girl scouts clean up community

Girl Scout Troop 116 of Walton-Verona recently had a “Clean Our Community” Day. We spent the morning cleaning the Walton area and organized a picnic for the girls afterward to celebrate a job well-done and to talk about what we can do to keep our community clean. While doing the cleanup,

some of the interesting things we found were empty liquor bottles, cigarette butts, soda cups, take-out containers, baby wipes, a full diaper, garage opener and a hoodie. This year we were fortunate not to find any drug paraphernalia on our cleanup – which we were thankful for. When we got back, I asked some of the girls what they thought about litter and having to clean up after other people. They said that even though they enjoyed being with their friends

picking up the trash that day, they didn’t understand why people continue to litter when so many people are worried about the environment these days. Their goal is to make everyone aware of how important it is to throw away their trash instead of throwing down their trash, and to make sure they make a conscious effort to use trash receptacles for their trash as well.

Hunting tradition caries through family

It’s that time of year. Deer hunting season in Kentucky. Many folks don’t know it but Northern Kentucky is known for some of the best trophy whitetail hunting in the state. In fact, Boone County has more deer per square mile than any other county in the state, according to the Department of Fish and Wildlife. That abundant wildlife supports our long-standing, rich hunting traditions, including youth hunts. Each year, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sponsors a youth hunt weekend. The purpose is to introduce young people to our hunting heritage and I always enjoy hearing the stories from parents and grandparents of introducing young Kentuckians to this tradition. I have to say I heard the best story yet this year. I was down at Shakey’s Pub and Grub in Florence for happy hour the Monday after youth hunt when I ran into my friend Boone County attorney Bill Robinson. Bill is the immediate past president of the National Bar Association and is known as one of the most skilled and well-connected lawyers in the area. However, it wasn’t the law Bill had on his mind. He told me about spending the youth hunt weekend with

his 12-year-old granddaughter, Brooke. Face filled with pride, he explained to me that Brooke, daughter of his son John Schickel Taylor and COMMUNITY daughter-inRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST law Jennifer, is a freshman at the prestigious Covington Latin School. While he was proud of her academics, he was sharing with me his pride in her hunting ability. For the youth hunt weekend, three generations of Robinsons – Bill, Tay and Brooke –hunted a farm he and Northern Kentuckian Bob Wallace owns in Grant County. Bill spent Saturday night sleeping in the back of his Toyota Sequoia. And after an unsuccessful morning hunt, I’m sure he questioned whether it was worth it. But just as the sun was setting Sunday evening, the pay off came. Bill described two large does that appeared in front of the ground blind he and Brooke had been hunting from. Brooke lifted her .270 rifle, took aim and fired a perfect shot, immediately felling the largest doe. Grandpa Bill was happy with second place, kill-

ing the second deer with his crossbow. Bill told me that wasn’t Brooke’s first deer. She had also harvested a doe the previous morning with her father. The Robinsons will have plenty of venison for the winter. Deer hunting is a reminder to many Kentuckians of how fortunate we are to live in a state with such splendid beauty and abundant wildlife. Kentucky enjoys a long tradition of hunting, when memories like those made by the Robinson family will endure. Nov. 9 is the start of modern gun deer hunting season in Boone County, as well as other counties in the northern part of the state. It lasts until Nov. 24. Late muzzleloader season lasts from Dec. 14-22. As always, hunters are required to wear orange hats and vests and should review the state’s hunter education requirements.

That just burns me up I giggled the other day as I remembered a phrase my mom used while we were growing up, to let us know she was really mad about something: “That just burns me up!” Although I laughed as I reminisced with my children, I also remembered that when my mother did use that phrase she was serious. It meant that someone or something had pushed her to her breaking point and things were going to change. Later in that same week I heard a testimony from a young man that caused me to think of my mom’s phrase in a whole new way. The man stated that God had worked in him so powerfully and used traumatic circumstances in his life to “burn off the things that are not of Him (God), and refine him.” In other words, God “burned him up!” But what about that word “refining;” knowing that the bible speaks of God refining us as “silver is refined,” I became curious. (It must have some significance; it is used in some tense seven


times in the bible.) The online Miriam-Webster Dictionary defines refine as “removing an unwanted substance in something; or to improve something by making small

changes.” Notice that refining is also a verb. In other words, it’s an action word, and if you’ve ever been refined, you’ve felt the burn. The beauty in the process of refinement is that we all come out shining like a precious stone. Each time the word “refining” is used in the bible it is associated with rich gems like silver and gold. Gems that are not destroyed in a fire, just perfected. In Psalm 66:10, 12 the Psalmist is praising God for his awesome works, stating “For you, O God, have tested us; you have refined us as silver is refined ... we went through the fire and through



A publication of

water; but you brought us to rich fulfillment.” The bible also tells us that through the process of refinement we will come to know Christ more fully and intimately (which happens to be his most important goal for our lives.) “I will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is my people;’ and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’” (Zechariah 13:9) If you are in the middle of your fiery trial at this moment, may you find hope, knowing completely, that through the fire, you are perfected; the unwanted will be removed and you will be left as precious as silver and gold walking more closed than you ever have with your Savior. Or in the words of my mother, let it “burn you up!” Julie House is founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program. She can be reached at 802-8965 or on

David Armstrong wants to work with community

By Amy Scalf

CRESTVIEW HILLS — Thomas More College’s new president says the institution is “open for business.” David Armstrong has been reaching out to the community since he stepped into his new role July 1 as the school’s 14th president. He was formally installed Oct. 18. “It’s a priority for us to look for partnerships for the mutual benefit of both Thomas More and business entities,” said Armstrong. Besides his personal meetings with business leaders, Armstrong greeted them en masse at an Eggs ‘N Issues informational breakfast meeting with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 15. “Every business leader I’ve met with, I’ve asked, ‘What can Thomas More do for you,’” he said. “Sometimes that’s a little surprise for them. They think I’m going to ask for something, but I’d much rather find out how we can help then first. We can provide great services to all our constituencies, especially other economic drivers in this region.” Crestview Hills Mayor Paul Meier said he’d like to see the college become more involved with the business park adjacent to campus. “Thomas More’s ties to the business community could be strengthened,” said Meier. “We’ve always had a good relationship with the college, but I agree with President Armstrong that it’s something that needs to be strengthened.” Armstrong said he’s working with

David A. Armstrong’s wife, Leslie, and their children, Johanna and David, watch as he is inaugurated as president of Thomas More College.PATRICK REDDY/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER David A.

nearby businesses, including St. Elizabeth Healthcare, to see how they can help each other. “Whether it’s internships or coops for students, or the expertise of our faculty, or just a place to meet and get great food or have an event,

we can do all of those things,” said Armstrong. “Thomas More is a huge asset to the community,” said State Sen.

Chris McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill. “Better than one-third of college graduates in the state come out of private schools, but they account for less than 5 percent of our higher education budget. Private colleges are doing a great job, and at Thomas More, 80 percent of their graduates stay in our area. It really is a great local university and a real community resource.” Armstrong said Thomas More’s graduates become community and business leaders. “We are the producers of excellent talent for openings, job creation and entrepreneurship,” he said. “That’s what we do. We produce graduates through a rigorous academic program who are equipped with the skill set to engage the world with integrity for their whole lives. They leave here with a values-based liberal arts education, and they have the integrity to make the right decisions when tough times come.” Although he said other institutions of higher learning are bigger and have more students, Thomas More “has been here for almost 100 years. It’s always been here and always produced great graduates.” “So many times, graduates have told me how Thomas More transformed their lives, and these people are going out and transforming the world,” said Armstrong. “As a business leader, I don’t think you can ask for anything more than a transformative leader.”

Scare up some treats for Halloween

I didn’t realize that Halloween is the second most commercially successful and decorated holiday right behind Christmas. We decorate with produce from the garden, like birdhouse gourds, pumpkins, winter squash and Rita field corn. Heikenfeld Pretty generic RITA’S KITCHEN compared to a lot of folks. Halloween is fun for me since I get to see the little ones in their costumes and go “begging” with them. I also learned that the kids don’t use the word “begging” and have no clue as to what it means. I have fun telling them about the meaning and how my siblings and I went “begging” through our neighborhood when we were kids oh, so long ago.

Deb Goulding’s bourbon bacon caramel popcorn I promised you this recipe and you’ll be glad I did. Deb, executive chef at the Price Hill Kroger, was a guest on my cable show. She made her nowfamous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn. Definitely an adult snack for Halloween! For my traditional caramel corn recipe, check out my blog. 3 strips applewood smoked bacon 1 3 oz. bag popcorn, plain

(popped) ⁄2 cup butter, unsalted 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 ⁄4 cup maple syrup 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking soda 1

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Fry bacon and set aside on papered tray to cool. Spread popcorn on papered tray and crumble bacon over top. In medium saucepan, add butter, brown sugar and maple syrup, then bring to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the bourbon, vanilla extract, salt and baking soda, and stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat. Put in oven on sprayed cookie sheets for 1 hour and stir up the popcorn every 15 minutes.

Caramel popcorn, peanut and pretzel bars Doesn’t this sound good? I’m definitely going to make this treat. Thanks to Mary J. who gave this to me. “Salty and sweet all at the same time,” she said. 12 cups plain popped popcorn 1 generous cup salted peanuts or favorite salted nuts, coarsely chopped 4 cups coarsely chopped salted pretzels Caramel2 cups sugar 1 ⁄2 cup water

Rita shares the recipe for Deb Goulding’s famous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. ⁄3 cup whipping cream 2 cups mini marshmallows


Spray a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Mix together popcorn, peanuts and pretzels. Put sugar and water in a nonstick or heavy medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil, without stirring, until mixture looks amber colored, about 8-12 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in heavy cream. Be careful cream will sputter. Stir in marshmallows until melted. Using sprayed spatula, pour over popcorn mixture until everything is coated. Pour into pan. Spay a piece of foil and use that to press mixture

evenly. Cool and cut into bars. Store at room temperature, covered.

Halloween hash in pumpkin bowls

This is fun for the kids. Let them scoop the flesh and seeds out of little pumpkins. The seeds can be roasted at about 300 degrees. I like to toss them with melted butter or olive oil, shake on some garlic powder, seasoning salt or cayenne pepper. You can do whatever you want with them. Roast for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. 1 pound lean ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 1 cup stewed tomatoes

Corn, start with 1 generous cup and go from there Chili powder, salt and pepper to taste 1 ⁄4 pound grated cheddar cheese plus extra for sprinkling on top Nachos or large Fritos for scooping

Cook beef, onion and garlic until meat is done. Add tomatoes and corn. Cover and simmer over low heat 10 minutes. Stir in cheese. Serve with nachos and more cheese.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Keep those Jack-OLanterns plump. Mix 2 tablespoons vinegar and a teaspoon of lemon juice into 3 cups of water. Brush over carved areas.

After it dries, rub carved surfaces with petroleum jelly.

Brisket follow-up from Rita’s Kitchen

The recipe for brisket called for slow cooking 9-12 hours for a 3-pound brisket. I bought a new slow cooker and the brisket was done in 7 hours. So just check after around 7 hours; if it needs more cooking, then continue to cook. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs.

E-Quick debit card can have problems Many people love to use debit cards to pay for things because they are fast and convenient. Even the state of Ohio uses such cards for child support payments. But a local woman said she ran into major problems recently when she tried to use her card. Joann Cafferky of Batavia has used an EQuick debit card from the child support bureau for several years without a problem. But she had an issue recently when she tried to withdraw money from an ATM machine. “I put my card in,

entered my pin number and it said, ‘Processing, please wait.’ In less then a minute it Howard said, ‘Can’t Ain process HEY HOWARD! this transaction at this time, try again later.’” When she tried again, Cafferky said she received a notice that there were insufficient funds in her account. She wanted $440, and knew the money was there, but

received the same notice when she tried again to withdraw the funds. Later, after checking her child support account online, Cafferky said she learned, “When they processed it the first time they took my money out.” That happened even though the machine said it couldn’t be done and – more importantly – Cafferky never got the money. I went to the standalone ATM machine in Milford and found it was now working. The big problem is proving it wasn’t working correctly when Cafferky tried to withdraw her funds. She had complained to man-

agers at Fifth Third Bank and the E-Quick card but was told it could be several weeks before she’d get an answer. “It’s $440, and to me that’s a car payment and electric bill, my daughter’s lunch money. That’s what the money was for and I’m waiting on it and they’re telling me I’m going to have to wait 45 to 90 days,” Cafferky said. Cafferky said she had to borrow money from her family in order to pay her bills. In the meantime, I contacted Fifth Third Bank and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services in Columbus, which man-

Come Write In to November novel Is the next great American novel collecting dust in your imagination? Pull it off that mental shelf and Come Write In to spend some time with other potential novelists during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) at the Edgewood Campus of Gateway Community and Technical College in November. National Novel Writing Month is a non-profit initiative to encourage writers of all ability levels and backgrounds to try to write a 50,000-word novel between 12:01 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1, and 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30. To help writers achieve that goal, the Edgewood

Campus Library will welcome aspiring novelists to four two-hour gatherings from 6 to 8 p.m. on Fridays, Nov. 1, 8, 15 and 22. The gatherings will offer refreshments, moral support, encouragement and good company to writers as they capture their thoughts. .” The Come Write In support groups will meet in the Edgewood Campus library on the second floor of the Student Services Center at 790 Thomas More Parkway, Edgewood. The event is open to the public and no reservations are needed for the novel workshops or information sessions.

ages the child support payment program. Fifth Third bank workers checked the ATM machine records and found there was a problem on the day in question. They then returned the money to Cafferky’s E-Quick card. A spokesman for the state of Ohio tells me Cafferky and others do not have to use a debit card in order to get their child support money. They can get a check mailed to them or, better yet, they can have their money deposited directly into their bank account. That direct deposit is something I highly recommend because it not

only assures quick access to your funds, but it lets you avoid fees associated with that E-Quick card. You get one free withdrawal from the card each month, but then must pay 75 cents for each subsequent withdrawal – and those fees can add up. Cafferky said she agrees with me and will switch to direct deposit into her bank account. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

Bullittsville Christian Church hosts senior resource fair Bullittsville Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is sponsoring a senior resource fair 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the church, 3094 Petersburg Road, Burlington. In 2010, AARP estimated that 41 million Americans would be over age 65 by 2011. According to cen-

sus data about 12,000 of them live in Boone County. This fair is an attempt to provide information that will be useful to these adults as well as their children and caregivers. The fair will include vendors (both private and public agencies) with information regarding their services/programs. In ad-

dition – and the feature that makes this fair unique – there will be speakers every half hour beginning at 10:30 a.m. who will address issues pertinent to the senior population and will answer questions. In order of appearance they are: » Mark Jordan, attorney;

» Starlette Fowler, Hospice of the Bluegrass; » Angie Parsons of Senior Services of Northern Kentucky and Kathy Nafus of ITNGreaterCincinnati will address transportation needs; » Marvalyn Zix, Colonial Heights and Gardens, will give a general talk about housing options;

» three local funeral homes will present on funeral preplanning; » Naomi Miller, Northern Kentucky Area Development District Resource Center for Seniors, will talk about the Resource Center and how to use it; » Kentucky State Police, Sgt. Rick Saint-Blan-

chard will address one of the biggest concerns – when to give up the keys to your car. Call the church office at 859-689-7215 for exact times of the presentations. A The fair is free; a light lunch will be available for a small charge.

Rotary honors military personnel, and their employers The Florence Rotary Club recently hosted a presentation honoring the military service of local workers, and the employers who recognize the sacrifice and commitment of their reservist. “This tribute to our employers is to thank them for not only continuing to provide employment to their solider, but also supporting the soldier’s family during the separation. This allows our soldiers to focus on the task at hand, which is the national defense of this great country,” said Rodney Bell, of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve , a Department of Defense office, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers. ESGR fosters a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military

service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. These citizen warriors could not defend and protect us at home and abroad without the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for themselves and their families. “It is our sincere pleasure to award the Department of Defense Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves Patriot Employer Awards to the following supporting employers,” Bell said. The award recipients and the reservists honored were: » Anderson Manufacturing – Keith Scott with Sgt. Joshua Ludwig » TIMCO Aviation Services, CVG – William Weaver with Christopher Hensley » Emerge – Jesse Kegley with Nicholas Balzano; and Josh Lillard » Enterprise Holdings – Jeff Rensing with Jeremy Hamilton » U.S Federal Air Mar-

shal – Roy Gooch » Linnenmann Funeral Homes – Guy and Marsha Linnemann with Gena Forsyth » Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic – Daniel Tobergate with 1st Lt. Nicholas Brophy » Fischer Homes – Tarina Goldsberry with Gina Carrero

Bag these worms now!

Question: My spruces and arborvitae trees are not looking good. They have numerous, spindleshaped, 2- by 1/3-inch elongated cones hanging from the branches, some of which have turned brown. Is this an insect or a disease problem? My neighbor thinks the trees may have been damaged by bagworms. Answer: It sounds like your neighbor is correct. The cones are actually the homes of bagworms and their overwintering eggs. Picking the bags off by hand and disposing of

them now is actually the best way to control bagworms in the fall, winter and early Mike spring Klahr before the HORTICULTURE eggs have CONCERNS hatched. When many small bagworms are infesting evergreens, an insecticide may be needed to prevent serious damage. The best time to apply an insecticide is while the larvae are still small

(less than 1/2-inch long). In Kentucky, this is usually in June. Preventive treatment in the spring is often justified on plants that were heavily infested with bagworms the previous year. Bagworms are the larval (caterpillar) stage of a moth that is rarely seen. Only the males develop into typical moths capable of flight. The adult female is grub-like and remains inside the bag until just before she dies. Bagworms pass the winter as eggs inside the bag that contained the previ-

ous year’s female. In mid to late May the eggs hatch, and the tiny larvae crawl out from the end of the bag in search of food. By using silk and bits of plant material, they soon construct a small bag around their hind part that looks like a tiny, upright ice cream cone. As the larvae continue to feed and grow, they enlarge the bag enabling them to withdraw into it when disturbed. Older larvae strip evergreens of their needles and consume whole leaves of susceptible deciduous species,

leaving only the larger veins. By early fall, the bags reach their maximum size of 1½ to 2 inches. At this time the larvae permanently suspend their bags (pointing downward) from twigs, and transform into the pupa or resting stage before becoming an adult. Adults emerge from the pupal stage in early fall. Males are active fliers and fly in search of females which remain inside their bags. After the fertilized female has laid several hundred eggs inside her old pupal case within the


bag, she drops from the bag and dies. The eggs remain in the bag until the following May, when the cycle begins again. There is one generation per year. Bagworms have two means of dispersing from plant to plant. Very young larvae may spin strands of silk and be carried fairly long distances by wind. Larger larvae may move short distances by crawling. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

Coconut oil has its place, but limit its intake for a healthy diet Coconut oil and other coconut products have been in the news and on store shelves in recent years. Coconut oil has become a popular option for many individuals. Some eat it by the spoonful, others spread it on their morning toast, and some use it for all of their baking needs. Coconut oil is more saturated than most other oils. It is solid at room temperature. Its natural melting point makes it attractive to candy makers. It is broken down in our bodies differently than some other kinds of oils. This is because of its high percentage of medium-chain triglycerides. These types of triglycerides are moved through the system and used as fuel leaving less to circulate through the body and be deposited in fat tissues. Promoters of using

coconut oil have made many claims for its health benefits over the years. It Diane has been Mason touted as a weight-loss EXTENSION NOTES aid, to improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients, and to improve cholesterol levels. Research has not proven any of these claims. There are two main types of coconut oil: virgin and refined. Virgin coconut oil is extracted from the fruit of fresh mature coconuts without the use of high temperatures or chemicals. It is considered unrefined. It has a light, sweet-nutty coconut flavor and aroma. It is useful in curries, and other dishes that are enhanced by its natural flavor.

Refined coconut oil is made from dried coconut meat. It is usually chemically bleached and deodorized. Refined coconut oil is essentially tasteless. It is often used for general baking and medium-heat stir-frying or sautéing. When it comes to fats, health professionals recommend we consume mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. These are readily found in nuts, seeds, and avocados. Oils including canola, olive, walnut, peanut, and flax are healthy choices. Coconut oil may have its place in our cooking cabinets but limit the intake of it and enjoy it for the flavor and other characteristics it brings to the dish. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

Church celebrating 100 years

Crescent Springs Baptist Church will celebrate its 100 year anniversary on Saturday Oct. 26. The church was started by the donation of a

parcel of land by Phoebe Anderson and the foundation was started. Rev. Marksberry was the first pastor who was an accomplished carpenter who designed the church. Mr. Marks, a stone mason and others completed the foundation. The church started growing and W.A. Lily was the first to be baptized – even the church did not have a roof at the time. When the church was completed services were held on bare wooden floors with wood benches and no backs. 1967 brought an expansion to the church which represents the current structure today where unapologetic preaching of God’s word continues. There will be an open house for all past leaders, members and their families along with the community and leaders of Crescent Springs at 5 p.m Saturday, Oct. 26. Refreshments will be served along with some earlier pictures and a more detailed history and progression of Crescent Springs Baptist Church. For more information, go to http://crescentsprings
