School closing message rocks By Melissa Stewart

Teacher finding inspiration in students By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — From time to time Jessica Pass pulls her pink scrapbook from the shelf. She flips through the pages filled with pictures and messages from former students. “I see their faces and it makes me realize why I’m a teacher,” the Boone County High School English teacher and media specialist said. For five years, in the classroom, Pass has taught language arts. After school, she’s helped students sharpen their reading and writing skills, and to make a difference in their community. In that brief time, she’s already made quite an impact, on the students and fellow teachers, said Boone County High School curriculum coach Jerry Gels. And that impact is a reason why she was named high school teacher of the

year by the Kentucky Council of Teachers of English/Language Arts. Gels nominated her for the award. “She is one of the more energetic, student-focused and community driven teachers I’ve ever been around,” said Gels, who nominated Pass. “I’m really impressed with how she works with students in the classroom. She pushes them and works them to death and they love her for it.” Some of the ways she works with students include her use of technology, innovative teaching methods and community service efforts. Gels said she has started a Twitter page for the high school’s library and introduced the school to Prezis, a cloud-based presentation software and storytelling tool for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas. Gels said Pass connects with students by reaching them on their level and familiarizing herself with their

interests. She involves her students in community service projects – from community clean up days to raising funds for Children’s Hospital to reading to elementary students. Pass, 28, of Fort Mitchell said surprised by the award. “By surprised I mean that I feel like I’m just doing my job. It’s wonderful to be honored for just doing what you’re supposed to do every day.” This is Pass’ first year at Boone County High School; previously she was an English teacher at Lloyd High School in Erlanger. Teaching was not her first career choice. The 2003 Lloyd High School graduate studied journalism at the University of Mississippi and the University of Kentucky, working internships with TV and radio stations, and then landed a job in print journalism See TRACHER, Page A2

BURLINGTON — It’s cold again and there’s snow. James Detwiler dreaded spreading the same old message of a school closing. So, the Stephens Elementary principal partnered with drama teacher Chad Caddell to rock it up. On Feb. 3 when school was canceled, they published a video on YouTube of the duo recording the school closing message to the tune of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The video can be found here: “We’ve had several cancellations and delays this year and I just got tired of hearing my voice over and over again delivering that same message,” Detwiler said. “Parents and students deserve a chuckle.” That’s just what parent of two Stephens students Julia Pile got. “I laughed hysterically,” the Florence resident said. The 52-second video has gotten a total of 7,200 views on YouTube since Monday morning. It was actually recorded a week ago in anticipation of having yet another school closing due to inclement weather. Boone County Schools has missed nine days so far this winter. “We want our students to see that there are fun ways to use technology and social media to be creative,” Detweiler said of the video, an homage of sorts to Wayne and Garth of the “Wayne’s World” movies. Drama teacher Chad Caddell said encouraging students to be creative and use their critical thinking skills is a top priority at Stephens. That’s done, he said, by making learning fun. “Good teaching is good theater,” Caddell said. “At Stephens we have created a place of laughter and fun. It’s not that we’re not working hard, we are. We take education very seriously, just not ourselves seriously.” Caddell wrote the lyrics to the school closing message in under 15 minutes. Rehearsal and final recording took all of five minutes. He said he’s excited about the response so far. “It’s a positive spin on the cold and snow and hopefully even an encouragement to our families,” he said. “We didn’t do it for the attention, we did it for the love of our students.”

Improvements coming to U.S. 42 in Florence By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Improvements are making their way to U.S. 42 in Florence. The project includes pavement replacement on U.S. 42

from Bentley Court to Ewing Boulevard, Nancy Wood with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 Office said. The portion of east of Interstate 75 will be replaced with concrete pavement; west of the I-75 will be replaced with asphalt.

FLORENCE — The name has changed and the sign out front has changed, but the welcome mat is still out at the Wildwood Inn. The hotel, popular for its uniquely themed suites, is now the Howard Johnson Florence/Cincinnati. “Everything is the same, except for a few upgrades to the system and operations and the name,” the hotel general manager Robbie Sumpter. The change became official about a month ago. The hotlel is now part of Wyndham Worldwide, one of the largest hospitality companies in the world with more than 55 brands including Howard Johnson, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Ramada, Days Inn, and Super 8. “It’s a big deal, we’re looking to take advantage of the name of a national brand,” he said. “Everyone knows us locally; about 70 percent of our business is local. Visitors don’t know us as well when they’re on the Internet looking up information on hotels. We’re hop-


ing this will bring more business and an identity.” The hotel is still owned by Gurvir Hira, who has owned Wildwood for the last seven years. He was out of town and could not be reached for comment. Sumpter said he’s worked at the hotel for 10 years and is excited about this new opportunity. “It’s very exciting,” he said. “It’s an opportunity for more growth. We’ve already added a full hot breakfast and looking to continue to upgrade. We’re hoping in the next few years to install a res-

taurant.” The hotel boasts 115 rooms, 27 of which are uniquely themed, such as the Artic Cave, a theme in tribute to the 1950s called “Happy Days,” and Venetian. It has a tiki bar and a tropical dome area with a heated pool and waterfall. Howard Johnson Florence/Cincinnati is at 7809 U.S. 42, Florence. For more information, visit .


students,” she said. “They make me the teacher I am. They deserve a great teacher. I’m blessed to have great students. More than anything in the world I want to make my students feel confident.” Reading and writing well, she said, is what they need to have that confidence. “Teaching grammar, punctuation and reading is teaching kids how to converse with the rest of the world,” she said. “If they can’t read and write, they can’t express their ideas and be who they want to be. I’m giving them the tools they need to do this. Knowing I can help them become who they want to be is what I love about being a high school teacher. That’s huge!”

Who Benefits from the new affordable care health insurance? From our extensive research, we have found that most people will benefit from Obama Care. The overwhelming fact is that middle class families will have more coverage and lower premiums under the Affordable Care Act. I will list some key benefits that I have found: 1. Less expensive premiums for working class families 2. No pre-existing conditions exclusions 3. No limit on your total health insurance benefit 4. We found it is much easier to understand what is covered under your policy 5. It is much easier to compare plans between competing insurance companies 6. GONE is the stringent underwriting designed to turn down the very people that needed health insurance

The Wildwood Inn, popular for its uniquely themed suites, is now known as Howard Johnson Florence/Cincinnati.

7. More competition based off of service and individual needs less about insurance profits and negotiated network rates 8. A single market place to shop and compare health insurance quotes “kyconnect” 9. Broader coverage’s are included in all policies like maternity care coverage 10.

Below are some real life examples of what you will pay for Kentucky Health Insurance.

So what makes us different from everyone else?

Much like other government initiated programs, it is extremely important to have someone working for you that knows your insurance qualifications. We have seen many problems with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. There can be confusion as to the amount of your income. Your income is based on your federal tax return modified adjusted gross income. It is not based on your W2. Certain income sources don’t count as income, like disability or child support. It is also important to have an agent that understands your individual needs, like is your doctor or pediatrician included in an insurance company’s network, or what is the cost of your prescription medication under the different insurance policies? We are experienced health insurance agents. We will walk you through the confusion and help you make the choice that best fits your needs.

Grant promotes active living in Boone County By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — This year Boone County families are invited to check out an active lifestyle. The Boone County Public Library, in partnership with the Boone County Community Education Council, received a grant for $30,000 to fund four community events that will encourage families to get active. The grant will make it possible for facilities like World of Golf in Florence and the R.C. Durr YMCA to be open free of charge for a day and for Florence and Boone County parks department to offer free events. “This is an important project because families in Kentucky, statistics show, aren’t as active as they should be,” Boone County Public Library adult programmer Shaun Davidson said. “These events will encourage families to get active together.” To complement these community-wide events, Davidson said the library will offer Check-It-Out activity kits that will contain everything needed to try a new exercise activity at home including equipment, instructional DVDs, and ideas to aide in developing a healthy lifestyle. “These activities are a chance for everyone in the family to come together and see that exercise doesn’t have to be a chore, but that it can be fun and as simple as taking a walk or playing a game outside,” he said. “If we can play a small part in helping families realize this, then we’ve achieved our goal for this project.” A subcommittee of the Boone County Community Education Advisory

Council, consisting of members from Boone County Parks, the library, Florence Parks and Recreation, World of Golf and R.C. Durr YMCA, applied for an Interact for Health grant in October. Interact for Health is an agency who awards funding to organizations throughout the Tristate in the promotion of programs and events that benefit well being. According to Davidson, as many as 4,000 residents could participate in the events, planned quarterly in 2014. The first will be 10 a..m.-2 p.m. Saturday, March 1, with a rain date of March 8, at World of Golf, 7400 Woodspoint Drive, Florence. The entire facility will be available to families, free of charge, including mini golf, driving range, clinics and the golf course. World of Golf is identified by the Golf Range Association of America as having one of the top 50 driving ranges in the U.S. World of Gold manager Dave Peru said he is excited to be part of the project. “The facility is designed perfectly for an event like this,” he said. “The golf course is an executive golf course making it far less intimidating to new golfers.” A second event will be at the Florence Government Center, 8100, Ewing Blvd., on Saturday, June 21, with a rain date of June 28. Activities will include exercising, walking, bicycling, skate boarding and rollerblading. The third event will include archery, bocce, Disc golf, horseshoes, a nature walk, sand volleyball and tennis on Saturday, Aug. 16, with a rain date of Aug. 23, at Boone Woods Park, 6000 Veter-

ans Way, Burlington. The final event will be Saturday, Dec. 20, at R.C. Durr YMCA, 5874 Veterans Way, Burlington. Activities will include cycling, gymnastics, swimming and Zumba. Florence Parks and Recreation administrator Vanessa Lenear, who served on the committee that secured the grant, said the goal is to offer these activities annually.

School closures because of extreme weather keep adding days to the end of the school year for Northern Kentucky students as districts plan how to make up lost class time. Through Monday, Feb. 3, Boone, Campbell and Kenton school districts have all missed nine days because of weather this year. Erlanger-Elsmere Independent Schools have missed five days, Beech-

Boone County Schools Superintendent Randy Poe said the district’s Board of Education planned for up to five days of missed school days added to the end of the scheduled school year calendar. With nine missed days, Boone County’s final day of school will be Wednesday, June 4.

The state’s lieutenant government and education commissioner, Northern Kentucky leaders and students rallied a crowd of more than 200 with the cry “Our children can’t wait!” at the Northern Kentucky Champions for Education Forum at Northern Kentucky University Jan. 29. The speakers issued a call for people throughout Northern Kentucky to meet “eyeball to eyeball” with their legislators to speak up in support of Governor Steve Beshear’s budget proposal to restore funding for education in Kentucky. “We’ve got to get folks to understand that nothing will happen unless they engage,” said Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson. “You’ve got to get engaged.” The forum was presented by the Northern Kentucky Education Action Team (NKEAT) and involved a list of organizations and speakers. Education Commissioner Terry Holliday praised the “phenomenal

progress” Kentucky schools have made since passage of Senate Bill 1, the 2009 education reform legislation. However, he said, schools are doing the “difficult work” with even less money now from the state’s primary school funding source – the SEEK formula – than five years ago, before new academic standards were put in place and more demands put on the schools. Among all the speakers, it might have the students’ voices that were the most stirring. “At the beginning of this year, my mom paid $500 for AP courses for my sister and me,” said Andrea Bomkamp, a student at Dixie Heights High School. “Some students take the AP courses but can’t afford the AP exams. The best educated students can’t just be the wealthiest ones. Every student, regardless of income, should have the opportunity to be valedictorian and take the higher level courses. Every student in my school and my state should be able to

have the same opportunity for a quality education.” Out-of-date technology, with wi-fi bandwidths unable to serve many schools’ students, hinders education, students noted. “Every instructional moment is critical. (But) when I log on at school, with all the staff and students accessing the same wi-fi, it takes several moments to load anything,” said Hannah Hodgson, a senior at Simon Kenton High School. “With 1,700 students in my school, technology is almost always in use. But with all of the students and staff accessing the same wi-fi, the current bandwidths are stressed.” Marianne Schmidt Hurtt, senior vice president and regional manager of PNC Bank chairs the Northern Kentucky Education Council.

College celebrates St. Thomas More birthday CRESTVIEW


Thomas More College students are known as the Saints, and each February the community is invited to celebrate the Feb. 7 birthday of the college’s namesake. The idea of celebrating St. Thomas More started

when the college organized a national celebration of the saint’s 500th birthday in1978, said Raymond G. Hebert, professor of history and former dean of Thomas More College. He has studied St. Thomas More extensively – and students and staff

Raymond G. Hebert, professor of history and former dean of Thomas More College, teaches all of his classes in the Thomas More Room where a copy of a painting of the Crestview Hills college’s namesake saint adorns the wall. Hebert organizes festivities for the college’s annual celebration of St. Thomas More’s birthday of Feb. 7, 1478. CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

know him by his affinity for researching the saint. “His birthday is also my birthday, which means I can never hide it on this campus,” Hebert said. The list of public events has grown over the years. There is a performance of Irish music at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, and an observatory viewing night and open house at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15. The Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers begin the week at noon Monday, Feb. 10. The Crestview Hills campus is at 333 Thomas More Pkwy. St. Thomas More has always been the patron saint of lawyers, and since 2000 has also been the patron saint of politicians, Hebert said. St. Thomas More birthday events were small and sporadic on campus until the creation of the annual invitation-only lawyer’s brunch in 1982, Hebert

said. The event always includes a speaker about the saint; this year’s speaker, Supreme Court of Kentucky Justice Michelle Keller, will speak on “Sir Thomas More – Saint, Judge, Husband, and Father.” Another fixture of the birthday celebration has become the Caden Blin-

coe Outland Festival, a public reading of works from authors’ writings. The festival, in its 20th year, is named for newspaper journalist who believed people should have access to literature through verbal retelling. English professor Sherry Cook Stanforth has taken over the annual

Outloud Festival, which the college renamed after Blincoe before his death in 2000. Blincoe, a resident of Boone County, was a freelance writer for The Enquirer and for the former Kentucky Post. The festival centers on celebrating writers and lovers of writing about and from Appalachia.

UNION — Sometimes basketball success comes down to the classic chicken/egg debate: Which one comes first? In the case of hoops, Tim Sullivan wants his defense to get his offense going, but sometimes it’s the other way around for his boys basketball team at Cooper High School. The Jaguars were feeding each other on both ends of the floor Jan. 31 as they devoured rival Ryle, 65-42, in a 33rd District seeding game at Cooper. “We hang our hats on the defensive end,” Sullivan said. “That’s been the trademark of our program from day one. There are a lot of times when we struggle to score, and that puts more stress on us. But tonight, we got what we wanted on offense, and that fed our defense. Usually our defense feeds our offense.” The Jaguars were starving like wolves for a win after falling to the Conner Cougars 48-41 three nights earlier in a district game. No one was hungrier than Hathorn on this night. The junior forward led all scorers with 20 points. Sullivan had challenged Hathorn, the team’s top post player, to be more aggressive. “It was huge, coming off the loss to Conner,” Hathorn said. “This was a huge game, huge rivalry. It helped us out and helps us bring more energy into our next game. “ Said Sullivan: “I got after him. His numbers are way down and they were down because of his energy and aggression. Tonight, he was a man, he was a monster, and that’s what we try to get out of him every day. We have to have that out of him every day to be good.” Senior guard Spencer

Cooper junior Colin Hathorn scores two of his 20 points. JAMES WEBER/COMMUNITY RECORDER

Holland had 15, Senior guard Zach McNeil 12 and freshman guard Sean McNeil nine. The balanced attack was the byproduct of a selfless offensive attack. “The whole team came in with energy and played amazing on defense,” Hathorn said. “On the offensive end, we had our best game of the whole season. We probably played more as a team today than any other time this year. You could tell by the way we were passing the ball around and swinging it to both sides of the court that we were all into it together.” While the Cooper offense has struggled at times this season, the defense has been strong, and has been a top priority of Sullivan’s during his career at Cooper. The Jags hunted the Raider ballhandlers, especially in the first half. After Ryle took a 13-10 lead midway through the first quarter, the Jaguars finished the half on a 20-3 run to take a 30-16 lead into the locker room. All three of the Raider points

came on free throws. Cooper started fast in the third quarter and pushed the lead over 20. “It’s a mindset, an urgency to go out and do your job,” Sullivan said. “All five guys working together and buying in to what you’re supposed to be doing, and taking it personally if your man does score on you. Understanding if I do get beat, my guys got my back.” The Jaguars enjoyed the Friday-night atmosphere of a huge rivalry game, with both student sections full and dressed for the occasion. The Cooper students went with sports jerseys to celebrate Super Bowl weekend, while many Raiders had ancient Greek togas. “What a great environment for high school kids to be in tonight,” Sullivan said. “A big rivalry game. Every game in our district is wild. The guys all know each other. It’s fun to watch two teams go out in an environment like this with the crowd as loud as it is.” Cooper improved to 10-8 and 2-2 in the 33rd District seeding standings. The Jags have both games with Boone County to play, Feb. 8 and Feb. 14. Ryle drops to 7-8 and 2-3 and plays at Boone County Thursday, Feb. 6. Cooper and Ryle split their two meetings in what has been an unpredictable year in the 33rd/ Boone school district. None of the four teams have swept both meetings with another district opponent. Conner went 1-1 with the other three foes and finished 3-3 in seeding. Boone is 2-1. If the Rebels lose to Ryle and split with Cooper, all four teams will end up 3-3. “It’s shaping up to be a special 33rd District Tournament,” Sullivan said. Follow James on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Cooper wrestlers grapple with records By James Weber

UNION — The Cooper High School wrestling record book, like those of other sports at the school, is a small one. But the program is deep enough now that many wrestlers are starting to put their names into it and make a run for the top of the list. The Jaguars are having a solid campaign in their sixth year of existence, and now is the time to fine-tune things for the upcoming regional meet. “We have been working on the physical aspect of wrestling all season,” head coach Michael Flaherty said. “The mental part becomes the biggest challenge this time of the

Kyle Steiner of Cooper, top, shown in the 2013 KHSAA state wrestling meet, has 87 wins at press time.JAMES WEBER/COMMUNITY RECORDER

year. The body might be able but the mind can sometimes hold you back. Kids look at mythical rankings and convince themselves that can’t move on to the next level. They may have lost to someone earlier in the

year and feel they can’t beat them. We have to work with these kids to overcome these negative thoughts and believe in themselves.” The Jaguars have several wrestlers who have a chance to make noise in

the postseason. Andy Gilliland graduated in 2011 with the current team record of 88 career wins, but he could several spots in the next two seasons. Kyle Steiner entered action this week with 87 wins. The senior and twotime state alternate is 22-8 this season. Andrew Bailey has 75 career wins including a current schoolrecord 29-match winning streak. He is the first Jaguar to win a conference championship. Senior Hunter Bailey is 27-7 this year. Bailey, who was a state alternate as a sophomore, is one of the best at making other wrestlers better in practice. Freshman Cody Huston (29-4) and sophomore Jordan Monroe (26-6) are

two highly successful sparring partners in practice who have made each other better, Flaherty said. Sophomore Jordan Kidwell (18-5) and junior Colton Hatridge (13-7). Sophomore Zack McKinley has moved up a weight class because of an injury to a teammate and has given it everything he has, Flaherty said. Cooper competed at Danville Feb. 1 and will be at the Conner tournament this Saturday, Feb. 8. “The Danville Dual meet was a good tournament for us,” Flaherty said. “It allowed us to get back into action after missing so many practices, matches and tournaments because of the weather. Danville also

gave us a chance to get some kids some matches who are returning from injuries and illness and to give some kids mat time who might have to fill in for some of our injured wrestlers.” Flaherty is excited about not only the upcoming postseason but the bright future of the program. “We have a very young team,” Flaherty said. “Most of our wrestlers are sophomores. I will miss our seniors, especially those who have been with me for the past four years. We came to Cooper together, but I am excited about our young guys.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Don’t let politicians divide and conquer Think of all of the things that divide us: politics, religion, abortion, racism, gay rights, environmentalism, capitalism, militarism, health care, marriage, taxes, war, wealth, poverty, education, ignorance, patriotism and egoism. We separate ourselves from people who disagree with us; and we disdain others with different ambitions, achievements or goals. Yet, our humanity unites us in ways that our differences cannot defeat. A Christian is more like a Muslim than a giraffe. A gay person is more like a straight person than a spider. A Republican is more like a Democrat than a goldfish. We lose our ability to improve society in any way when

being a person first (with) ... traits and possibilities that are the patrimony of no one in particular but instead of humanity as a whole.” We all have needs in common, like food, housing, clothing, health and education. We also have fears in common, those problems that Cardinal Maradiaga describes as robbing us of sleep. We cannot share this deepest part of our humanity until we stop emphasizing our differences. Cardinal Maradiaga believes in a community that, “... helps to make life intelligible and dignified, and makes it a community of equals without castes or classes, without rich or poor.” I believe in a United States of America that follows the same ideals. “...

We cannot even bear to listen to someone with a different opinion from our own. We have our own clubs, churches and news stations. The issues that divide us call us to consider the simplicity of christian faith: “One cannot be a Christian without

brothers, we must fight for establishing relations of equality and to eliminate their greatest obstacles: money and power ... consequently it is necessary to create a movement that can bring about such a thing…” Our common humanity should lead us away from the politics of division. We don’t need to be on the winning side; we need to be on the side of our neighbors, with politics, unions and philosophies all subordinate to people. We need what the Cardinal calls, “a simple attitude of listening to build on what is common.” When a politician tells you that some other group doesn’t care about children, or old people, or the environment, it is a lie. All people desire to nurture and to protect children, to

make sure that the elderly or infirmed are cared for, and want the earth to endure beyond our own lifetime. By insisting upon this basic truth from our politicians, we may begin to make some headway with policies that actually put people ahead of power and ambition. When our government tries to divide us, we can tune that message out, and seek leaders who understand and promote the possibilities that unite us. When our elected officials succeed in dividing us with wild rhetoric, then we lose, they win, and nothing gets fixed. Janice M. Wurtz lives in Crestview Hills.

Use this month to start healthier lifestyle In the United Health Foundation’s 2013 edition of America’s Health Rankings, the great state of Kentucky came in at No. 45 when considering smoking, obesity, physical inactivity and diabetes. (Ohio, by the way, is No. 40.) All of that should, of course, be disturbing to anyone. It’s especially frustrating for those of us in the medical profession who are spending more and more time strategizing on the best ways to educate the community on how to remove risk factors for heart and vascular diseases, as well as how to best manage the consequences. February is American Heart Month, yet another opportunity to remind people that by eating better, exercising and not smoking, the quality of your life will improve. I don’t know if it’s become a cliche or background noise, but the messages are not getting out in ways that are effective enough to change behaviors.

I’ll keep it simple and give you two goals for this month: 1. Walk five days a week. It’s free. It’s easy. Develop a routine and/or a great iPod playlist. Go as long as you feel is comfortable. Get your heart rate up. Find someone to walk with you and encourage each other. You will feel better. That will be addictive and spill into your eating and smoking habits. 2. Avoid environments that discourage good health and put yourself in situations where you can succeed. It’s hard to stop smoking when others around you are lighting up. It’s harder to eat healthy when your significant others are eating fast foods. These changes will benefit

Chocolate treats perfect for Valentine’s Day

I always get sentimental around Valentine’s Day. I remember being a kid in second grade, hoping I’d get some Valentine cards from my classmates, particularly Bobby Simpson. It was always fun watching my boys when they were that age choose special cards for Rita their ValHeikenfeld entines. RITA’S KITCHEN Times change, but the message is the same. Anybody can be your Valentine, so remember those folks who have lent a helping hand, or who may just need cheering up. Send them a funny kid’s card with a note and, if you can, share one of these recipes with them. Chocolate rules!

Cappuccino mocha pudding cake aka Upside down hot fudge pudding cake If you’re making this for kids or someone who doesn’t like coffee flavor, leave out espresso. The

hour. Serves 8. Each serving: Calories 215, Fat 7 gm, Protein 26 gm, Carbs 644 mg

fun thing about this is you learn a bit of food chemistry: the hot fudge sauce is poured over the top of the cake batter, and as the cake bakes, the sauce turns to pudding and sinks to the bottom while the cake batter rises to the top! Cake:

2 cups flour ⁄3 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder 1 tablespoon baking powder 11⁄2 cups sugar 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts or other nuts (optional) 1 cup milk 4 tablespoons melted butter 2 teaspoons vanilla 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Whisk flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking powder and sugar together. In separate bowl, whisk milk, butter and vanilla. Add this to dry ingredients and blend. Pour into pan. Pudding: 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1 ⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Easy chocolate fondue

Rita’s chocolate pudding cake can be made with or without espresso powder.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD 13⁄4 cup very hot water

Mix sugars and cocoa. Pour water over and whisk. Pour ever so gently and evenly over batter. Pudding will look quite thin but gets real thick as it bakes. Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is set and just firm to touch. Don’t over bake or you won’t get much pudding!

Diabetic chocolate lover’s cheesecake

I remember this recipe from friend and former colleague, Joanna Lund, founder of Healthy Exchanges.

1 pound fat-free cream cheese, room temperature 4 serving package sugar-free instant

This can be made ahead and reheated. Serve with chunks of fruit, cake, etc. I like to ladle some out for the kids before adding liqueur. 4 cups chocolate chips, your choice (approximately 24 oz.) 1 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 1 ⁄2 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract Liqueur: Start with 2 tablespoons and go from there (optional) - I used orange liqueur

chocolate fudge pudding mix 2 ⁄3 cup nonfat dry milk powder 1 cup water 1 ⁄4 cup Cool Whip Lite 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 chocolate-flavored piecrust, 6 oz.

Garnish: 2 (21⁄2-inch squares) chocolate graham crackers, crushed 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Stir cream cheese with a spoon and add pudding mix, milk powder and water. Mix well using a whisk. Blend in Cool Whip and vanilla. Spread into crust. Sprinkle cracker crumbs and chips over top. Refrigerate at least 1

Put chips, cream and milk in pan. Whisk over low heat until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and liqueur.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Tortellini soup update. Sandy, a loyal reader, made the tortellini soup with spinach and used a 19 oz. bag of tortellini and

found it was way too much for the quart of broth. She decided to add more broth, which worked. Sandy asked me to specify how much tortellini to put in. I would say start with 2 cups tortellini and go from there. John Pancoast’s eggplant casserole. Mary Lou K. made this healthier by substituting whole wheat crackers for the topping and low-fat yogurt for the whipping cream. “It was very delicious and would make a great main dish, though we had it with trout and considered it our vegetable and starch,” she said.

Community chorus looking for singers

Considering hysterectomy?

The Florence Community Chorus is looking for people who love to sing. The chorus, now entering its 27th year, is open to men and women over high school age. “There is no charge or audition to join the chorus, but I hope you can carry a tune,” said Director Don Whitis The chorus meets 7:30-9 p.m. Thursday evenings at the Florence Government Center on Ewing Blvd. in Florence. Musical selections range from spirituals to pop, “but we don’t do rap,” says Whitis. He is currently selecting numbers for the spring concert season, including “For Good,” a popular song from the musical

production “Wicked.” Chorus membership hovers at around 30 members, and many singers began in grade or high school or with church choirs. The chorus performs at a variety of places – civic functions, church events, business and family gatherings, weddings, funerals, and private parties. The chorus frequently lightens hearts at nursing homes, especially at Christmas. The chorus has had some interesting singing experiences over the years, from the sublime to the ridiculous. It has fared well in adjudicated concerts and sung at the Cincinnati Museum Cen-

ter, the Devou Park band shell, and NKU’s Greeves Auditorium. At the other end of the spectrum, the chorus sang an early gig at a superstore opening where the singers stood precariously on risers next to frozen food cases while shoppers jostled by with grocery carts. “It’s all about music, friendship, and fun,” Whitis said. The chorus is sponsored in large part by the city of Florence but is open to singers from any community. To join, visit a Thursday evening rehearsal, or contact the venue coordinator at 859341-9063 or go to http://

It’s true that kids have fun at story time, but fun isn’t all they are getting out of these drop-in sessions. Boone County Public Library’s story times are full of pre-reading activities such as singing, dancing, rhyming and listening to stories. A study found that preschool literacy programs – like library story times – do make a difference. “Librarians have been reading stories to children for years,” said Greta Southard, Boone County library director, “but with advances in brain science and early education, library story times have become more than just a place to hear a story. Library story times today are actually early literacy classes.” Boone County library’s story time librarians have been trained on the Every Child Ready to Read Initiative through the American Library Association. The initiative takes the best practices from early literacy development research and applies them in a library setting for story time. Because parents are the first and most important teachers in a child’s life, the initiative stresses supporting caregivers in that role. The library’s enhanced story times provide opportunities for families to experience literacy together. The format is practical for parents because the activities are based on things that parents can do with their children every day. Children, and their caregivers, read stories, play games, dance, sing songs and participate in handson activities. Each family goes home with a “Take Home Fun Card” loaded with activities and helpful early literacy tips that can be done at home. “One of the most important practices we engage in during story time is play,” said Tyra LaVerne, early literacy specialist. “Play is often dismissed as

‘just fun,’ but play is how children learn about and interact with their world. Through play, they develop new skills such as critical thinking, communication, problem solving and collaboration.” The library’s story times are held year-round with three, month-long breaks in May, August and December. Library staff use the breaks to gather materials and plan for the next session of story time. Story time is offered at a variety of times throughout the week, in the morning, afternoon and evening as well as on Saturdays. Families are invited to drop in (no registration needed) to participate. The library also offers two specialized story times: sensory and Spanish story times. Sensory Storytime is designed for children, of any age, with sensory sensitivities and it is held every Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the Main Library, 1786 Burlington Pike, as well as the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. Spanish Storytime (Tiempo de Cuentos) is for ages birth to 5 years and is offered every Friday at the Florence Branch, 7425 US 42, at 10:30 a.m. Spanish speaking families and families learning to speak Spanish are welcome to participate in this story time. “Attending story times at the library exposes a child to different experiences and increases their knowledge of how the world works,” said Jennifer Timmerman, youth services Manager, Scheben Branch. “Children with this background knowledge soar when they begin to read because they can connect their real experiences with stories they read.” Parents who are interested in bringing their children to storytime can check the Library’s website, for the complete list of days and times.

Now is the time for homemade soup This is the time of year when a warm bowl of soup may just brighten your day. It can also be a great time of year to make a large pot of soup at home; enjoy some now and save some for later. Some soups can be made in 15 minutes or less while others benefit from several hours of simmering. Homemade soups can be lower in sodium and fat than canned or boxed, ready-to-eat or condensed soups. Homemade soups may also trump those served in restaurants. Most homemade soups can easily be frozen in smaller portions for use at a later

date. What makes a great soup? Your favorite vegetables, combined with a Diane protein, a Mason starch, a EXTENSION liquid and NOTES some seasonings. While chicken soup has not been shown to cure the common cold, research does show it helps relieve the symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection. Also, people just felt better after consuming chicken soup. Chicken broth did not have the same effect.

Mishandled soups and stews can be breeding grounds of unwanted bacteria. Soups and stews should be cooled as quickly as possible to decrease the opportunity for bacteria to multiply. Consider the following tips: » Divide soup into smaller portions and store in shallow containers. » Use ice cubes for cooling if they don’t af-

Question: I would like to grow decorative plants in my landscape that would also provide food for my family. Do you have any suggestions? Answer: An attractive landscape of various trees and shrubs, some flowers and well-tended turf has value. Our landscapes help define our outdoor living space, provide shade and help screen unwanted views. A wellmaintained landscape may add as much as 5 percent to 10 percent to the value of our property. But landscapes can provide another resource that we don’t often consider – food. What if it were possible to introduce edible plants into your landscape? Growing your own food has some obvious benefits such as fresh and flavorful fruits, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. Many food-producing plants can fill the roles that we usually assign to other plants in our landscape. Trellised blackberries, for example, make a great hedge or screen. Using thorny types can also provide some measure of security. Some varieties even keep some of their leaves throughout the winter to provide some screening. Trellising the blackberries will help define the planting and promote more upright growth. The time needed to prune and thin blackberries is comparable to many other hedge-type

plantings. Also, blackberries have relatively few problem insects or diseases. Highbush Mike blueberry Klahr bushes HORTICULTURE make beauCONCERNS tiful landscape shrubs, producing showy, white, urn-shaped flowers before setting on the lovely, tasty blue fruits we all love. Just be sure to add organic matter and do a soil test soon in case you need to add some sulfur to lower the soil pH. Serviceberry is a bush or small tree that has multi-season beauty with its showy white spring flowers, its edible June fruits (like small blueberries), great orange fall foliage color and striped bark on tree forms of the plant. In flower beds, you can plant fancy-leafed lettuce in early spring. It comes in many leaf colors, including yellow, bronze, red, purple, green, speckled and spotted. Lettuce is a good cool-season vegetable planted in early March and finished by mid-May, just around the time you are adding annual flowers. In summer, try a few rainbow chard plants, brightly-colored hot and sweet peppers, and purple or variegated basil. All are relatively pest free

and are a good contrast to common flowering annuals and perennials. Also, consider containers. Cherry tomatoes come in red, yellow, orange or purple, growing well in hanging baskets where vines are allowed to droop over the edge of the pot. Several herbs (like tri-color sage) are quite attractive, are well suited to containers and also provide savory flavoring for your salads and meals.

Girl Scouts selling cookies at drive-thru Weather seems to be the main topic of our conversations now days. We have to adjust to what comes our way. The subzero temperatures have caused water breaks, wrecks and fires. A tragic wreck on I-75 this week is considered a miracle as the couple suffered minor injuries. Our Walton Firemen have endured the weather and served our community. This past week they fought a house fire at 20 High St. The residents, Bill and Jewel Bedford, were not at home, but lost all of their possessions. The Red Cross provided lodging for the night. The home was one of the oldest in

Walton, dating back to the early 1800s. The front part of the house is log, which is still standing. ■ The Girl Scout Troop of Ruth Walton/ Meadows Verona will be WALTON NEWS holding its first ever drive-thru cookie sale at NKM Inc. at 8420 Dixie Highway, Florence, (next to Maddox Nursery) from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7. No need to get out of your car! Cookies are $3.50 per box. They will really be glad to serve you.

■ Charles “Hunkie” Holder was visiting in Walton on Saturday. He is doing very well and is living at Providence Pavillion , 401 E. 20th St., Covington, KY., 41014. His phone number is 859-283-6659. He would probably like to hear from his Walton friends. ■ Pat Scott is now at home recuperating slowly from broken ribs. She fell before Christmas and has had a lengthy hospital and rehab stay during the holidays. Pat’s address is 320 Edwards Ave. You may be like me; I had forgotten that Huey Drive and Johnson Street had been officially re-

named to Edwards Avenue during Mayor Carlisle’s term. Thanks Margie Stewart for enlightening me. ■ Ann (Sis) Black of Edwards Avenue suffered with pneumonia a few weeks back, but is doing much better now. ■

Investment adviser says he’s bullish on growth FLORENCE — One of the leading investment banking firms in the Unites States is bullish on prospects for growth in the stock market this year. “We believe the U.S. stock market is in for a full market not seen since the 1980s,” Mike Stenger, an investment adviser with Goldman Sachs, told Florence Rotarians at their January 27 meeting. He said the stock market has seen periodic upswings over the past couple of years, “but this rally is different.” What makes it different are recovery of the real estate market and rapid progress toward energy independence by the United States. The real estate market made gains in both 2012 and 2013, and he believes 2014 will be even stronger. “But the bigger bell ringer will be energy independence,” said Stenger, a financial adviser with 31 years of experience. “The U.S. is now energy independent for natural gas.” Goldman Sachs is banking on greater use of natural gas for fuel and power because the U.S. is building reserves and the price is about one-fourth that of oil for the same energy output, according to Stenger. Financial analysts with his firm are seeing more truck fleets switching to natural gas. In addition, The Tennessee Valley Authority announced plans last fall to replace two coal-fired

million jobs will be added this year. He said some manufacturers are starting to “repatriate jobs” – that is, bring jobs overseas back to the United States. Submitted by Pat Moynahan

power plants in Muhlenberg County with a gasfired plant. Goldman Sachs also expects the U.S to achieve energy independence on oil by 2018, “and that will be a game-changer,” Stenger said. “Outside our borders, we won’t be dependent on any other country. “We are very excited as we go forward. We’ve got the reserves (of natural gas) and we’ve got the refineries” for oil. New technology is making it possible to extract more natural gas from depleted sites through hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.” Stenger sees other signs of economic recovery. Goldman Sachs analysts believe unemployment will continue to drop, and more than 200
