BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Governor’s budget doesn’t include Ky. 536 funding By Stephanie Salmons firstname.lastname@example.org

Foley will discuss Boone barn quilts By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
BURLINGTON — Quilts and barns are two of the most recognizable and celebrated symbols of rural America, at least as far as Joyce Foley is concerned. “In my mind, the (Boone County) Barn Quilt Trail ties the two things together,” the Florence resident said. Foley will speak about the quilt trail at the upcoming meeting of the Boone County Historical Society, 7 p.m. Thursday, March 20, at the Boone County Library’s Main branch, 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington. Foley, who started the Boone County Barn Quilt Trail, a community service project of the Florence Woman’s Club, is an
avid quilter herself. She got the idea for the trail after visiting Adams County, Ohio, where the barn quilt trail movement began. “It got me really excited,” Foley said, thinking something like that could be done in Boone County. She was busy at the time, but in 2006, after finishing a two-year term as president of the Florence Woman’s Club, Foley realized it was her opportunity. The club approved the project and gave her $500 to get started. She tasked herself with a number of goals: celebrating quilting history, delighting travelers, providing public art, involving younger generations and aiding the county’s agritou-
rism. “I just want to make the county prettier,” said Foley. The trail is also something that’s free and open daily. According to Foley, there are more than 20 million quilters in the United States. “If they know there’s a barn quilt trail in Boone County, they’re going to get off the highway to go see it,” she said. Now, 78 barns around the county are decorated with squares that resemble a quilt block. “Viewing quilt blocks gives us a tangible sense of bygone eras,” said Foley. Want to continue the conversation?

UNION — Funding for the next phases of the long-awaited Mount Zion Road project wasn’t included in Gov. Steve Beshear’s proposed two-year budget, but local legislators and city officials are working to make it a reality. As previously reported, proposed plans are to reconstruct the existing two-lane road to a three-lane urban roadway from the beginning point on Hathaway Road to the Old Union Road intersection. From that point eastward to the Tiburon Drive area, a five-lane urban roadway is proposed. Mount Zion Road east of Tiburon Drive will be reconstructed to a five-lane section by a separate project that will also reconstruct the interchange with Interstate 71/75. According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s recommended highway plan, $4.06 million is necessary for utilities, currently slated for 2018, and $28.73 million for construction, currently slated for 2019. State Sen. John Schickel (R–Union) said it was “a huge disappointment” the funding was not included in the governor’s budget. He was hopeful construction funding would be allocated this year. Two Boone County projects, Mount Zion Road and
continued work on Pleasant Valley Road, are both “critical,” he said. He’s working with fellow members of the Northern Kentucky Legislative Caucus to get funding included in the budget. “I’m cautiously optimistic we may be able to,” said Schickel. Union City Commissioner Deanna Kline said she addressed the matter at a recent legislative caucus. “It’s a huge concern for us,” she said. Ky. 536 is a major component in the continued development of Union, and the proposed Union Town Center, a 90-acre area near the intersection of Mount Zion Road and U.S. 42. According to the Town Center website, it’s considered the downtown of Union and consists of an older business district along Old Union Road and a potentially new business district at U.S. 42 and Mount Zion Road. The city is “really banking” on the project moving forward, said Kline. “If we don’t get that next phase of funding, it’s going to hold up the development of the Union Town Center.” Union Economic Development Committee member Steve Harper, chairman-elect for the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, has been to Frankfort with the See BUDGET, Page A2
Spring into Health at Boone library By Stephanie Salmons firstname.lastname@example.org
HEBRON — The winter weather has been relentless, but the Boone County Public Library is hoping to help residents welcome spring with healthy habits. Spring into Health is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at the library’s Lents branch, 3215 Cougar Path, Hebron. “We are kind of endeavoring to give some healthy living examples,” reference librarian Lynette Cookston said.
The library will offer free samples of healthy snacks, smoothies, chair massages, children’s activities, self-defense instructors, representatives from chiropractors and more. Prizes that “encourage activity,” like scooters for kids and active games for adults, will be available for all ages. Those attending do not have to be present to win. This is the second year for the event. While she’s not sure where the idea originated from, Cookston says “here at Lents, we try to have several

community events during the year and this is just one that kind of developed.” It’s a community outreach event on a topic of interest, she said. “I think most of us realize many of us are too sedentary and that has caused health issues,” said Cookston. The library, she said, has a number of resources “that can help people connect and get active.”

School board, educators oppose arming teachers By Melissa Stewart email@example.com
The recent introduction of a program that would screen, train and arm volunteer teachers and staff members has sparked discussion among Boone County educators about whether or not it is appropriate. The Boone County School Board held a workshop March 6 to discuss safety issues within the schools and the program,
School POST (Protecting Our Students and Teachers), was a prominent point of discussion. School Board Chairwoman Karen Byrd said she does not support the program because the majority of the district’s educators oppose the program. She said it is unlikely the board will consider introducing it to schools. POST was introduced last month by Boone County Constable and firearm instructor Joe Ka-

The program is closely patterned after the National Armed Pilots Program and incorporates lessons learned by law enforcement during10 years of study since the shooting at a high school in Columbine, Colo. It is intended to be a model program starting in Kentucky, Kalil said, but could be adopted anywhere in the U.S. Volunteers would go through extensive screenings and training. Those carrying concealed weapons would remain unidentified to students, but would know who else is armed. Police dispatch would know how many participants are at each school. This would be in addition to a school resource officer (SRO) who is an armed deputy in the schools. Byrd said she opposes the program because she feels “the training received is not anywhere sufficient for what we’re asking people to do.” She has concerns of increased liability and insurance costs, as well. “When we added (school resource officers), liability costs increased. How much more will this go up having armed people who are not as trained as those in law enforcement,” she said. Board member Ed
Massey voiced similar concerns. “Liability is not covered and would be a nightmare for the district,” he said. “Teachers did not sign up to be armed guards. Training is not sufficient. Schools are not airplanes. Flying is elective, school is compulsory and in the (armed pilots program), pilots carry guns to protect the aircraft and are barricaded behind a locked cockpit.” Tom Haddock, president of the Boone County Education Association on leave as a sixth-grader teacher at Conner Middle school, said when he considers the POST program, he looks back on his years of training. “Weapons were not a part of that formal training, neither were psychology classes to train me on how to take aim at a child who’s family I know and who I’ve instructed,” he said. “The things I was taught were how to get a child to ask questions, to wonder and to be creative.” Haddock said an educator’s job is to ensure that students are career and college ready, not to carry firearms. He said adding POST would “ask too much” of teachers who are already overworked. “To me, it’s also illogical to assume that putting

from parents on both side of the issue ... I have even more ‘what-ifs’ I am concerned with. Is there a 100 percent solution? No, I wish there were.” Board member Bonnie Rickert said she and the majority of those she’s spoken to are opposed to POST. “Whether it’s POST or any other program, arming our teachers is not good for the students,” she said. “Our teachers have not been trained for that and 40 hours of training is not going to prepare them.” School Board member Maria Brown agreed. Sheattended Kalil’s introduction presentation to POST last month and has done “some extensive research on similar programs.” “I believe the greater issue at hand is whether anyone other than a trained police professional should be allowed to carry a gun in our schools, regardless of which particular program is being examined,” she said. “The police are trained extensively to respond in high stress, life-threatening situations. I believe the amount of training necessary to adequately prepare a teacher for such situations is simply not feasible. The POST program in particular has never been implemented and there are just too many unknowns to feel that it is a responsible and safe choice for our schools at this time.” Want to continue the conversation?

more guns, where no guns should be allowed at all, will solve the problem,” he said. Bryrd Haddock said a majority of his colleagues are opposed to POST as well. Cooper High School Principal Michael Wilson said that is certainly the case at his high school. “The one thing all of us have in common is the (desire for the) safety and security of our students,” he said. “Cooper High School teachers overwhelming oppose the idea of arming teachers with guns. We need to continue to work diligently with all stakeholders on preventative measures of the social and emotional well-being and mental health availability.” School Board member Steve Templeton, who has two granddaughters attending school in the district and a grandson who will be starting school next year, said he has a “real personal connection with safety of our school children.” “I don’t think arming teachers is the correct path,” he said. “You would be asking (teachers and staff) to take the law in their own hands. They are educators not law enforcement officers. When I first heard about the POST program I had several ‘what-ifs’ come to mind. As this month has past and as I have received numerous emails

chamber several times during the legislative session. “This is just going to tie our hands to some extent in attracting developers to the Union Town Center,” said Harper. “We’ll continue to work on that, but that does hurt us in our efforts.” Developers typically want the infrastructure to be in place to support their developments, Kline said. The road needs to be upgraded “to support the traffic for the development we hope to get here.” She said the town center will be developed “but
tional care facility has been withdrawn The request was for a zoning map amendment from Suburban Estates/ Union Town Overlay to Public Facilities/Planned Development for a 5.2 acre property near the U.S. 42 and Brilliance Avenue in Union, which would have permitted a transitional care center on the property. Boonespring Transitional Care Center, which would have been a part of Care Spring Health Management System, had obtained an option to purchase the 5.2 acres from the Drees Co. The property was originally approved for multi-family residences as a part of the Harmony development. A letter dated March 5 from zoning consultant Anne McBride with McBride Dale Clarion, a
planning zoning and consulting firm, notified Boone County Planning Commission staff that the request was being withdrawn.
I believe the only way it’s going to happen if is Mount Zion Road gets widened,” she said. Nancy Wood, spokeswoman for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6, said, “the Legislature can, and always does, make amendments before enacting the plan into law. “Unfortunately, there are numerous transportation infrastructure repair and improvement needs across the state and not enough available funding to support all projects. Many of the projects submitted by each of the highway districts don’t make the recommended highway plan.” The state is currently acquiring right of way for
the Ky. 536 project, she said. “In the recommended highway plan, while funding for the (construction) phase is programmed for fiscal year 2019, the funding source designation indicates that funding is not available at this time,” said Wood. “When funding is available, the project will continue.” At the March 3 Union City Commission meeting, Kline encouraged people concerned about the matter to call their legislators. Contact information for local legislators can be found at the Kentucky Legislature website, lrc.ky.gov.

St. Timothy Preschool students Violet Main and Hayden Wright play a game of “Where’s the Matching Letter?”THANKS TO DEB THOMAS
FUN AND GAMES Students at St. Timothy Preschool are able to incorporate fun and games into their daily learning.
Gateway Community and Technical College and Sullivan College of Technology and Design in Louisville have created a transfer pathway that will allow Gateway associate degree graduates to obtain a bachelor’s degree in advanced manufacturing technology from Sullivan. “We are pleased to offer yet another transfer pathway to our students,” said Laura Urban, Gateway provost and vice president of academic affairs. “The agreement means that students who meet the required criteria will advance seamlessly into the bachelor’s degree program at Sullivan. “The new pathway joins more than 250 other transfer pathways that Gateway has established with 20 colleges and universities throughout the region,” Urban added. “For example, we have specific transfer pathways with Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College, Xavier, University of Cincinnati, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Eastern Kentucky University and Kentucky State University to name a few.” Under the transfer agreement, Gateway associate degree graduates in certain man-
ufacturing programs can receive transfer credit for their entire associate degree when beginning a bachelor’s degree program at Sullivan. For full credit, graduates must have a 2.0 GPA and a minimum completion rate of 67 percent of credit hours attempted. Three Gateway programs qualify for the transfer pathway: manufacturing engineering technology, industrial maintenance technology and electrical technology. Under a transfer agreement between the Kentucky Community and Technical College System and Sullivan, Gateway students who transfer to Sullivan will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship. The scholarship is renewable annually until the student completes his or her bachelor’s degree in advanced manufacturing technology. Sullivan will award up to 10 such scholarships a year. Formerly known as the Louisville Technical Institute, Sullivan College of Technology and Design is a private, careerfocused college accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools and licensed to offer associate and bachelor’s degrees by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.

Conner basketball reflects on regional trip By James Weber email@example.com
The ending was heartbreaking, but the hearts of Conner High School faithful were full after the end of the season for the Cougars’ boys basketball season. Conner suffered a tough overtime loss to Dixie Heights, 61-59, March 7 in the Ninth Region quarterfinals at the Bank of Kentucky Center. The Cougars finished with an 11-15 record but got to celebrate their first berth in the regional tournament since 2008. Seniors Samuel Hemmerich, Jacob Gilbreath, Landon Lamblez, Will Ruholt, Andrew Way and Adam Yeager got to play on floor of the Northern Kentucky University arena. “I told them they changed the culture of Conner High School,” head coach Jim Hicks said. “Not only have you made each other better, you have changed minds and worked to get back to this level, you have changed the culture of this school. You have kids now wanting to come to our games, students excited about when we play. That’s a testament to how hard they work.” The Cougars had a chance to win the game in

TMC women’s chemistry keeps team at top level By Adam Turer firstname.lastname@example.org
The freight train that is the 2013-2014 Thomas More Saints women’s basketball team keeps on rolling. After winning their eighth straight Presidents’ Athletic Conference title to close out the regular season 28-0, the Saints ascended to the top spot in the d3hoops.com poll. Entering the tournament as the No. 1 team in the country is no guarantee of championship success, but the Saints are headed in the right direction. “The ability to play another weekend together and be in the Sweet 16 for the fifth time in program history is a great accomplishment,” said head coach Jeff Hans. “We have been talking about the month of March for a long time and being ready to play our best basketball.” The Saints thrived from their raucous home crowds in hosting the first two rounds of the NCAA Division III tournament. Thomas More defeated Salem 95-58 in the opening round, then set a tournament record by scoring 120 points in a 34-point victory over John Carroll in round two. “Our crowds were

final that night) to see who we play.” Dixie scored the first five points of the extra session, but Conner rallied back before missing a 3-pointer with eight seconds left that would have tied the game. Hemmerich led Conner with 21 points. Lamblez had 11 and Nick Watts 10. “The guys left it on the line They never quit,” Hicks said. “They worked their tail off and they exe-

amazing in the first two rounds and it definitely helped our performance,” said Hans. “We would make a play and the energy that came from the crowd would feed into another play on the defensive end. The runs we go on are a direct correlation of our fans.” It was a weekend of milestones for the Saints. In addition to setting the team scoring record, junior forward Jenny Burgoyne set a career high with 35 points in the opening round win over Salem. Five Saints, led by Sydney Moss’s 37 points, scored in double figures in the second game. The Saints’ reward for dominating the first two rounds is a trip to Walla Walla, Wash., for
the program’s first Sweet Sixteen appearance since 2011. Whitman College, the nation’s previous topranked team before Thomas More took over the top spot in the final poll of the regular season, is hosting this sectional round of the tournament. The Saints open the sectional against Texas-Tyler on March 14. “We will definitely miss the home atmosphere, but all of our road travels through PAC play should help us be prepared for the trip to Whitman,” Hans said. “This time of year, we have to worry about executing and making plays.” With Burgoyne and Moss finishing down low or getting to the free
cuted what we wanted them to execute. They believed in themselves, they believed in each other and what we were doing.” Conner led 16-9 after one period. The second quarter featured the Cougars being on the same floor as history when Dixie senior Brandon Hatton scored his 3,000th career point with 4:50 to go. Hatton, already the top boys scorer in Ninth Region history, became the 31st player in Kentucky to reach that milestone. “We were passing the ball very well, knocking down shots, and we kept
them off the offensive glass, which is the main thing we wanted to do,” Hicks said. “The second half, they got more offensive opportunities and that was the big key.” Although it was a tough end, Hicks remained proud of his guys. “I wish it weren’t over,” Hicks said. “We could have played another 15 or 20 minutes and everyone would have enjoyed it. It was fun to be a part of and it was heartbreaking to end that way.”
throw line, the Saints offense appears unstoppable. Moss is capable of setting a Division III record with 63 points in a game, but is content with playing a supporting role with her rebounding and defense. There is no alpha dog in the Thomas More offense, which makes them nearly impossible to defend. “Our guards are very unselfish and we don’t care who scores, just as long as Thomas More has more points at the end of the game,” Hans said. “Getting to the free throw line is the easiest way to score. We have good post players that can score inside or draw a foul, and our guards will attack to finish, pass or get to the free throw line.” Outsiders see the lopsided margins of victory and think that Thomas More has a special team. Those who know the team and its players know that it is their chemistry that makes the Saints a special group. There is just something special about this team that goes beyond the box score. They enjoy one another’s company on and off the court. That may be the edge that gets them through the sectional and into the final four. “This team is very different. They love to play this game and are excited to be playing together,” said Hans. “I think that shows in our ability to share the basketball the way we do.”
Freedom lock in key players for 2014 season Community Recorder
The Florence Freedom are looking to make their third straight postseason appearance this upcoming baseball season. One recent offseason move was a big step in making that happen. The 2013 Frontier League MVP Jacob Tanis recently signed a contract extension and will return to Florence for the 2014 campaign. Tanis is a former 13thround selection by the Oakland Athletics in 2011 after finishing up his college career at Mercer University. He hit .264 with 17 HR and a leagueleading 72 RBI for Florence in 95 games last season on his way to the Frontier League MVP Award. Tanis also collected 26 doubles, third most in the league. The Peachtree City, GA native played briefly with the Beloit Snappers (Low-A) of the Midwest League in 2013 before signing with the Freedom on May 8. The Freedom announced contract extensions for pitcher Chuck Weaver and infielder Bobby Joe Tannehill. Weaver was signed by the Freedom in June 2013 after he finished up his collegiate career at IPFW. He had a solid rookie season, posting a 4-2 record with a 3.70 ERA in 14 appearances, 12 starts. The Fort Wayne, Ind. native started 13 games as a senior for the Masta-
dons, posting a 2-5 record with a 3.57 ERA. Weaver threw two complete games as a senior and pitched 70.2 innings. He played two years for IPFW after transferring from Vincennes University where he was named to the NJCAA All-Academic team. Tannehill is in his second season of professional baseball in 2014. Tannehill joined the Freedom in early July of 2013 following a collegiate career at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, ID. He hit .210 with 1 HR and 9 RBI last season. The Auburn, WA native is a shortstop by trade but can also play second base and third base. He primarily plays second base for the Freedom. Season tickets, mini-plans and group tickets are available by calling 859-5944487. Opening Night is 6:35 p.m. May 15.

Get your facts about tea party right
An answer to Ted Smith: Get your facts first, then you can distort ‘em as much as you please. This is the best response to a letter in the Recorder on Feb. 27. Tea party candidates don’t undermine Republican candidates: They win. So far as the parties go, the tea party is the life of the party. The statistics show that the Independent party is now the largest registered party, at over 40 percent. The Republican party is not one of two major parties. It is one of two minority parties, Democrat and Republican. You have to have microscopic vision to tell any difference between these two minority parties; something
pointed out by Will Rogers at the time of Herbert Hoover. Most Independent voters changed over from being James Republican. Duvall That was beCOMMUNITY cause the parRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST ty was so anxious to “win” that it courted the fringe at the expense of its core, which has a very different vision for America. That vision has not yet been fully articulated, but I can tell you that it is very different from the cronyism so dear to the establishment. Ronald Reagan warned us
about big government riding our backs. The Republicans control the house, but you wouldn’t know it. In the Senate they do not even offer effective opposition. The only exception seems to be Sen. Rand Paul, who is almost a one-man show. The tea party is here, and it’s not going to go away. The tea party has managed to connect with Americans at all levels. Everyone has a right to be heard, and to make their concerns known. I suggest we send some new people to Washington. Mr. Smith is mistaken to think it is “wacko” to send a bad man instead of a good one because he won’t be minority leader the first day. Nothing can be
Universities should fund Brent Spence Bridge During World War II, the business community dropped their business models and immediately began wartime production. Frigidaire no longer made refrigerators, but instead made machine guns and propellers for fighter jets. William Knudsen left General Motors to lead the United States war machine. He left a salary of $300,000 to work for free. Why? Knudsen replied, “This country has been good to me, and I want to pay it back.” American businesses willingly sacrificed a great deal to help America win the war. This is not surprising since businesses are givers, not takers. Today, politicians and business leaders claim there is no money to build vital infrastructure projects like the Brent Spence Bridge. We’re told taxpayers must dig deeper into their pockets and spend thousands of dollars per year to pay tolls. I have another solution. What if the biggest financial takers in America were asked to give back to help finance a major infrastructure project like the Brent Spence Bridge? Would they respond like businesses did during WWII or are they too greedy and self-centered to give back? Do you know how much money is sitting in universities’ endowment funds? Merriam-Webster defines endowments as, “A large amount of money that has been given to a school, hospital, etc., and that is used to pay for its creation and continuing support.” The GAO reports that on average 8.8 percent of endowment assets are used to fund ongoing operations. Does that mean these funds are dwindling? Hardly! The National Association of College & University Business Officers surveyed 835 colleges and universities and found 2013 endowment assets total $448.6 bil-
lion. That’s an increase of 10 percent over 2012 assets of $406.1 billion. Eighty-two universities have endowment funds exceeding a billion dollars. Tom Harvard’s enWurtz dowment fund inCOMMUNITY creased from $30.7 RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST billion in 2012 to $32.7 billion in 2013. That’s an increase of a B. S. Bridge. The top five endowment funds are: Harvard $32.7 billion, Yale $20.7 billion, Texas $18.3 billion, Stanford $17 billion and Princeton $17 billion. If these takers would make a one-time donation of $3 billion to the B.S. Bridge Project their endowment funds would drop by less than 1 percent. Each school would pay their proportionate fair share. I know they’ll scream that they need that money to survive as if bridge-crossers don’t need their money to survive as well. Shut up and do it for America. I don’t remember hearing university boards or presidents screaming against raising the top federal income tax rate by 11 percent or complaining about the 47 percent tax increase on working Americans in the fiscal cliff deal. All we need is for the university leaders to collectively agree to support the greater good. Isn’t it funny how Marxism sounds so much sweeter when you’re a taker instead of a giver? You see there are countless ways to fund the B.S. Project. It just takes leaders. Yes, I know. That’s been our problem all along. Tom Wurtz is president of Tom Wurtz Consulting and a resident of Ft.

done to magically solve the problems Washington has created; we need less government, not more. Washington has been doing too much. What it can do is continue to create problems for more and more people, wreck the economy, and sell it to the Chinese for inflating dollars. The business of MIT is particularly laughable. Fraud alert: McConnell claims that Mr. Bevin said he graduated from MIT on his resume. (That was Massie.) Don’t people have more important things to receive notices about than that? Well, it didn’t happen, folks. The alleged resume has never surfaced. Mr. Bevin does not send resumes; he accepts them. He owns 10
companies. Call McConnell’s office and ask to see a copy of the resume; chances are they’ll get the guys who found Obama’s birth certificate to fake one for you. Matt Bevin is not a career politician. He talks from the heart. He answers questions from the floor, and doesn’t skirt the difficult ones. He doesn’t have any magic, just practical suggestions about knotty problems. You have some facts; you’re on your own now if you want to distort them.

invaded Northern Kentucky
exington had fallen, Frankfort had fallen, and the rumor was that they were marching on to Newport, Covington, and Cincinnati,” the man said. On the last Thursday night in February, every seat in the meeting room at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Public Library was taken, every eye fixed on the man describing Northern Kentucky’s role in the Civil War. It was James A. Ramage, a history professor at Northern Kentucky University. The Civil War museum in Fort Wright is named after Ramage. In 2004, he led the committee to save Battery Hooper, one of the key gun emplacements protecting Cincinnati during the conflict. “There are five batteries extant today,” he said, pointing to a map on the screen. “They are Battery Combs and Battery Bates in Devou Park, and Battery Hooper, which is where we have our museum, Battery Holt in Wilder, and Battery Shaler in Evergreen Cemetery.” Battery Hooper represents a time, in September of 1862, when the community came together in a crisis and worked to erect an eight-mile defensive line from Ludlow to Fort Thomas. “Gen. Lew Wallace was assigned to command the defense of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati,” Ramage said. Many years after
the war, Wallace would write the best-selling novel “Ben-Hur.” “Under the watchword ‘Citizens for labor, soldiers for battle,’ Wallace required every adult male to fight or work,” Ramage said. To help with this effort, Wallace formed the Black Brigade, marking one of the first times that the Union Army use African Americans. But in order to move men and supplies into Northern Kentucky, a bridge was needed as the suspension bridge was not yet finished. So Wallace met with three local contractors and asked them to build a pontoon bridge, a temporary structure supported by boats. The contractors had never even seen one but promised that they could do it in 48 hours. “We’ll get coal barges off the Licking River” they said. They finished the bridge over the Ohio River in 30 hours, then built another one over the Licking. All the preparations were completed in just five days. Soon Confederate soldiers marched into Northern Kentucky. When they reached Florence, crowds shouted “Hooray for Jeff Davis!” referring to the Confederate president. At the time Boone County was pro-Confederate, while Campbell and Kenton counties were proUnion. Wallace had pulled together a force of 22,000 Union troops and 50,000 militia. The 8,000

Confederate soldiers who marched into Fort Mitchell decided that Wallace’s men, and the defenses they had constructed, were too much for them. There was no attack, and after two tense days they withdrew. “Gen. Wallace’s cannon at Fort Mitchell, and the batteries, 15 of them, never fired a shot. But now they fired a celebration,” Ramage explained. To end his talk, he

shared this from Wallace’s victory proclamation: “In coming time strangers viewing the works on the hills of Newport and Covington will ask, ‘Who built these entrenchments?’ You can answer ‘We built them.’ If they ask, ‘Who guarded them?’ You can reply ‘We helped in thousands.’ If they inquire the result, your answer will be ‘The enemy came and looked at them, and stole away in the night.’”

Turfway Park adds race to Spiral card
With sponsorship from Dr. Kendall Hansen and Intervention Pain Specialists of Crestview Hills, Turfway Park has added the Hansen Starter Handicap to its lineup on Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes day, Saturday, March 22. The 6 1⁄2-furlong Hansen Starter Handicap carries a $50,000 purse and is written for horses four years old and up that started for a claiming rice of $50,000 or less in the year before this year’s Spiral Stakes.
Nominations close March 13. The race is named for Hansen’s eponymous homebred Hansen 2011 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner and Eclipse Award champion 2-year-old – Hansen – now standing in South Korea. The nearly white colt won his debut by more than 13 lengths at Turfway and then romped
again in the Bluegrass Cat Kentucky Cup Juvenile by nearly 14 lengths, also at Turfway. In his next start Hansen set the pace and then gamely held off eventual Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags to win the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile by a head, clinching the championship. “One of the best traditions in horse racing is to name a race after a special horse. Hansen’s uniquely pure white color, his attractive face, and his dominant running style attracted
fans around the world,” said Hansen. “Naming a race at Turfway after Hansen is a perfect fit, since he won his first two races there in such jawdropping fashion. Turfway has also been my home track for my racing operation of 30 years and it’s where I had my best success when I handicapped for a living in 1980 and ’81. It’s an honor to be able to add such a race to the great Spiral day tradition. It’s also fun for me this year because Hansen’s halfbrother Gunderson has won
both his races at Turfway and likely will run in the race.” “Dr. Hansen’s sponsorship affords us the opportunity not only to add another stake to our signature day of racing but also to attract high level claiming horses, which recently have been underrepresented in our program,” said Director of Racing Tyler Picklesimer. “Additionally, it’s refreshing to see a local businessman and Thoroughbred owner take an active role to help strengthen our racing product.”

Potato soup, Guinness float for St. Patrick’s Day Boy, did I learn my lesson this week. Remember last column when I spoke about sled riding for the “last” time this year? Well, we all know what’s happened since then: More snow and more opportunities to sled ride. But I do think we’re turning the corner toward spring Rita because St. Heikenfeld Patrick’s RITA’S KITCHEN Day is coming and that means getting the garden ready for planting potatoes (hopefully!). But regardless of Mother Nature cooperating or not, we’ll celebrate with some corned beef and cabbage and a cup of this warming potato soup.
Creamy or chunky potato soup
You can eliminate the bacon and use vegetable broth if you like. In that case, add a bit of butter to the pan to take the place of the bacon fat. Also, if you don’t like garlic, just leave it out. 1 ⁄2 pound bacon, cut up, sautéed and set aside, leaving a couple tablespoons fat in pan. 2 cups onion, chopped Anywhere from 1 to 3 teaspoons minced garlic 3-4 pounds baking potatoes, chunked up, peeled or not 6-8 cups chicken or vegetable broth or as needed Cream or half-and-
half (optional) Salt and pepper to taste Garnish: fresh parsley, sour cream, bacon, shredded cheese (optional) Cook onion in bacon fat until golden. Add garlic and cook a minute. Add potatoes and 6 cups broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender. Puree soup as desired, either leaving it chunky or creamy. Add more broth if needed. Stir in as much cream as you like.
Tip from Rita’s kitchen
Instant cream soup thickener: Add potato flakes if necessary after you puree soup, but be careful, you won’t need much if at all, and they thicken it pretty quickly.
I am not a beer drinker, but my oh my, I like this. Maybe it’s the coffee ice cream or maybe it’s the frosted mug or maybe, just maybe, it’s the beer itself! First you have to frost the mug. Run water inside and out, pour out excess and immediately put in freezer to frost up. Then put scoops of ice cream into the mug – and really your favorite is just fine here. Vanilla totally works as well as coffee. Put 2-3 scoops in and pour the Guinness over. I think it’s the bitterness of the beer along with the sweetness of the ice cream that gets me. And if you don’t like Guinness, I suppose you

could use a stout or whatever full-flavored beer you have on hand. Some folks like to swirl in some chocolate syrup on the ice cream before they pour in the beer.
Famous restaurant hot artichoke and spinach dip clone Go to taste on this, adding more, or less of the seasonings. A shake of red pepper flakes in here would give it a bit of
a kick. Thanks to the reader who wanted to remain anonymous but who said “this is better than any that I’ve had at restaurants.” 1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1 ⁄4 cup each: mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese 1 large clove garlic, minced or more to taste 3 ⁄4 teaspoon dry basil 1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts packed in brine, drained and coarsely
chopped 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed, very well drained 11⁄2 to 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded Parmesan for garnish (optional) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend cream cheese, mayo, Parmesan, garlic and basil. Add artichokes and spinach. Bake in sprayed casserole for 15-20 minutes. Top with mozzarella and cook about 20 minutes or
until cheese is golden and bubbly. Serve with crackers or crudités. If desired, sprinkle with more Parmesan.

NKU musical highlights beauty, strength, heart of women The Department of Theatre & Dance at Northern Kentucky University is presenting “A ... My Name Is Alice” March 20-30 in the Robert & Rosemart Stauss Theatre on campus. The play was conceived by Joan Micklin Silver and Julianne Boyd and is directed by Corrie Danieley. “ A ... My Name Is Alice” is a musical that had a long run at the Village Gate Off Broadway. It is a collection of songs and scenes that highlight women’s paradoxes, beauty, strength and heart. It is a celebration of how far woman have come while recognizing that they still have a way to go in their national and international pursuit of equality. This revue created by a wide variety of comedy writers, lyricists and composers offers a kaleidoscope of contem-
porary women. The 20 songs portray friends, rivals, sisters and even members of an all women’s basketball team. In addition to directing the show, Danieley, is one of the newest faculty members in the department having come to NKU at the beginning of the 2013-2014 academic year. She makes her debut with this production and already seems right at home. “I am very excited for my NKU directorial debut,” she said. “I am thrilled to work with such a talented group of young ladies, a creative design team, and a hard working crew. I have heard of NKU’s reputation as the best theater department in the state and it is my hope to help keep that legacy alive for a long time to come.” In the midst of moving from St. Louis, being an

INDEPENDENCE — Running might not seem like an answer to the heroin problem, but participating in the NKYHatesHeroin.com 5K Run/Walk can help spread awareness. When Nicholas Specht died from a heroin overdose in August 2013, his family started the organization to help people talk about heroin addiction and to offer resources for families who are struggling with addiction or its aftermath. Kim Norton, whose cousin, Holly, is Nick’s mom, was walking on her treadmill and decided a 5K run would be a great way to spread the word and motivate more people to get involved in their

doing, but resources are coming out of everywhere for this to come together. People want to be involved, and that’s awesome to see.” The race will start at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, June 7, at Simon Kenton High School, 11132 Madison Pike. Race day registration will begin at 7 a.m. More information is available online at NKYHatesHeroin.com, and online registration is at www.sprunning.com. Preregistration fees for the 5K cost $25 and include a T-shirt. Children aged 12 and younger may participate for free. Volunteers and sponsors are still needed. Awards will be available for first, second and third place male and female runners and walkers.

Prune and feed some – not all – plants Question: When should I cut back hydrangeas and fertilize my lawn and landscape? Now, or wait until it warms up more? Answer: That depends on what type of hydrangea you have. The Annabelle hydran-
gea, Hills of Snow hydrangea, and Peegee hydrangea bloom only on new wood, and thus should be pruned back while still dormant, before spring growth begins, and even before buds swell. They can be pruned back severely if needed, and the
new stems will still produce flowers. Therefore, you can prune them now, or within the next couple of weeks. Be careful when pruning other types of hydrangea that bloom on old wood, such as Oakleaf hydrangea (little pruning
needed) or any of the pink or blue flowering “Bigleaf hydrangea” cultivars Mike (hydranKlahr gea macroHORTICULTURE phylla). CONCERNS The latter should be pruned, as needed, immediately after the flowers fade in early summer. Other landscape shrubs that bloom in the spring, such as forsythias, lilacs, fothergilla, and viburnums, should be pruned within two weeks after flowers fade. Don’t prune them now, or you’ll be cutting off the flower buds, thereby reducing or preventing bloom this year. With regard to fertilizing, go ahead and do your trees and shrubs in March, while they are still dormant. Don’t fertilize lawns now, except for new lawns planted last fall or this spring, to help them get established. Most or all lawn fertilizer should be applied to established lawns in the fall, from September through December. Do not fertilize established lawns in March or April, unless you have to when you apply your crabgrass preventer products. For older lawns that

are still yellow-green by mid-May, about one-half pound of actual nitrogen (or 5 pounds of a 10-10-10 fertilizer) should be applied per 1,000 square feet of lawn to restore a dark green color. But in general, spring and summer nitrogen tends to feed the weeds and crabgrass more than the lawn, and it may also cause more lawn diseases, insects, and thatch buildup.
Mid-March to midApril is normally a good time to apply crabgrass pre-emergence herbicide to lawns to prevent the germination of crabgrass seeds. Most of the crabgrass in this area usually sprouts in mid-to-late April, so the “Northern Kentucky deadline” for crabgrass control is April 15. In order to be effective, the chemical must be put down before the crabgrass seeds sprout. A second treatment, six weeks after the first one, will extend control for the entire summer season. Carefully read label precautions before buying the herbicide, since many of them will damage or kill newly-seeded lawns, as will many herbicides containing 2,4-D for broadleaf weed control. In newly seeded lawns, use siduron (Tupersan). This product can even be applied at seeding time, and it also controls foxtail, another common weedy lawn grass.

Students network with community leaders By Stephanie Davis-Novak
They may have just gotten their driver’s licenses last week, but they’re the leaders of tomorrow. Whether or not we’re ready, millennials (workers between the ages of 18 and 32) already comprise more than a third of the current workforce, and that number is expected to reach 75 percent by 2025. In fact, millennials are already starting to move into positions of management. However, many questions about millennials’ workforce preparedness have been raised, due to their perceived lack of “soft skills,” particularly around interpersonal communications and relationship-building. Because millennials have grown up surrounded by technology and social media such as texting, Facebook, and Twitter, they’re very comfortable communicating short
bursts of information to large groups of people en masse. However, when it comes to face-to-face communications and ability to work as a team, many companies find that millennials’ skills are lacking in these areas. Unfortunately, these skills are not generally taught in school; they’re learned on-the-job through observation and mentoring. The goal of January’s Regional Youth Leadership’s Life Skills Session, sponsored by Transfreight, was to provide a forum where students could learn and practice communication skills that are essential to the workforce, and to leadership positions. These skills all relate to interpersonal communication and selfpresentation: professional introductions, confidence and body language. The students learned all about the importance of networking, and got a chance to try out their new skillset at the Speed
Macda Tewelde and Tess Meyer talk with Tim Bryant from the College of Mount St. Joseph at January’s Regional Youth Leadership’s Life Skills Session.PROVIDED
Networking Event. This event was supported by about 25 leaders from area companies, including Toyota, St. Elizabeth, PNC, Northern Kentucky University, Multicraft, Chick-fil-A, College of Mt.
St. Joseph, and many more. The students who participated found this event to be very valuable. On average, they saw a 72 percent increase in knowledge, and a 59 percent in-
crease in related communication skills, based on pre- and post-surveys. Many of the comments received from students focused on how much they learned: » Great way to learn
how to talk to people » Made me step out of my comfort zone » This was an important exercise and I learned a lot from it » This day was about topics that we don’t cover in school or something our parents don’t even think to teach us Feedback from the students points to the continued need for programs such as Regional Youth Leadership’s Life Skills Session to help students develop the tools and skills they need for future professional success. If millennials have a venue to improve and practice their interpersonal communication skills today, they will be better equipped to make positive contributions as the leaders of tomorrow.
