Burlington author releases book on basketball rivalry By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — Ryan Clark grew up a fan of Kentucky basketball. “It all started with my granddad,” the Burlington resident says. “I grew up in Louisville, but he says he got to me first, before any U of L fans could. So I grew up

a UK fan and loved their basketball squad ever since then.” Clark, 34, has just published his second book on UK with friend Joe Cox, “Fightin’ Words: Kentucky vs. Louisville.” “I’ve written a few others but writing about UK basketball is the most fun I’ve ever had,” he said. He and Cox had just finished

their last book, “100 Things Wildcats Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die,” when they began to wonder what was next. Cox, 33, said the idea was one he had more than a decade ago. While Cox, who lives near and works in Bowling Green, is a Kentucky fan – he and Clark met See RIVALRY, Page A2

Some inmates at the Boone County Jail will work to clean the county roadways this spring during the annual Boone County Jail Clean Sweep 2014, which runs March 31 to April 4. While there are inmate crews that pick up trash and dead animals on the roadway year round, Jailer Edward Prindle said for this week, they have 10 crews working on the endeavor instead of just one. According to Prindle, inmate crews picked up 1,860 bags of trash during the cleanup week alone last year. That totals more than 19 tons of trash. “That’s good that it’s cleaned up, but it’s also kind of depressing,” he said. Former jailer John Schickel and then-deputy jailer Prindle started the program in 1988. This is the 26th year for the program and they’ve been able to bring in more trash each year, Prindle said. Before that, there was never a week devoted to doing a spring cleanup of the county’s roadways, he said. “As the county’s grown, it becomes a bigger and bigger job,” Prindle said. “The growth in the 26-year period has been tremendous as far as the number of roads that we cover.” Prindle says it’s part of

the jail’s role to look at ways to have the inmates “give back to the community some of what they took in whatever crime they committed against the community.” Sgt. Jim Wilson, director of the jail’s work camp in Burlington, said the program not only saves tax dollars but it teaches inmates work ethic as well. He estimates that at a low rate, the same work would cost the taxpayers around $36,000 for salary alone. According to Wilson, they save they county about $1.8 million a year in labor costs. Prindle says that comes from inmate crews working with the county parks and roads departments. For the first time, Prindle said they’ll partner with the new Boone County Recycling Center. The trash that’s picked up will be sorted by inmates assigned to work at the recycling center and what’s recyclable will be sorted out. Those who see litter that needs to be cleaned can call the work camp at 859-3344980 or email Wilson at . Prindle is currently seeking re-election and faces challengers Scott Goodridge and Brian Landrum in the May 20 Republic primary. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet at @SSalmonsNKY

Classroom library instills love of learning By Melissa Stewart

UNION — Lisa Willoughby’s classroom is unlike any other. In this Mann Elementary second-grade classroom students are surrounded by books to encourage their imagination, develop their minds and prepare them for life. Willoughby has spent the last 17 years building her 5,000-book classroom library. “Reading is a passion of mine,” Willoughby said. “I absolutely love having developed a classroom library that opens the threshold to endless possibilities for my students. They have at their hands the opportunity to learn about whatever they’d like to learn about in non-

fiction or the opportunity to take whatever adventure they’d like to take on in fiction.” According to Willoughby, instilling this love of reading at this age is essential to students’ success in school and in life. This zeal to educate her students earned Willoughby, 51, of Union, recognition as a Florence Rotary Teacher of the Year, award chair Gary Wilmhoff said. The award includes recognition at a Rotary Club luncheon, as well as $250 from the award’s sponsor, Heritage Bank. The money is to be used for a charity of the teacher’s choice or even the teacher’s school. Their school is given a banner to recognize the winner. This year 18 nominations

were received for the Rotary’s annual award and only three were chosen. Other winners were Karen Wiebe from Camp Ernst Middle School and Kelly Read from Boone County High School. Wilmhoff said recognition of local teachers is an important duty of the club. “Our education system is the backbone of our community,” Wilmhoff said. “Rotary recognizes that without a good education system, the county won’t progress as it should. Teachers are a vital part of the community and we want to recognize them for their contributions.” Willoughby started her teaching career after graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in1997.

Survey says Boone residents satisfied By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — Boone County residents are seemingly satisfied with the level and quality of services provided. At least that’s the conclusion of a 2013 citizen satisfaction survey, commissioned by the county Fiscal Court last year in partnership with Northern Kentucky University. “The purpose of the survey was to measure citizens’ evaluation of county performance of delivering basic public services, and to get citizen input on current policy initiatives under consideration,” an executive summary reads. Frank Bednar presented the results of the survey to court recently. According to County Administrator Jeff Earlywine, this is the second time the county has partnered with NKU and the project was one Bednar completed as a

graduate student. Survey results can be found online at According to government and community relations director Adam Howard, the cost of the survey was about $3,300 and was limited to postage, printing and prepaid postage for returned surveys. The expense would have been significantly greater if the county had worked with a national company that provides similar services rather than NKU, he said. The information will be discussed by Boone County department heads “regarding specific action items that might need to be addressed,” Howard said. “Further, this information may be used by the fiscal court in policy decisions regarding 911 fees, property maintenance code and other issues.” In November 2013, 3,500 surveys were sent out to ran-

domly selected residential addresses in the county “proportionate to the urban/rural composition of residents,” according to Bednar’s presentation. Of these, 392 usable surveys were returned. About 53 percent of respondents were male and 42 percent were female while 31 percent were over the age of 65 and 32 percent were between the ages of 51 and 64. More than half of the respondents have lived in Boone County between two and 20 years. “The overall results of the survey indicated that Boone County residents (respondents) are increasingly satisfied with the level and quality of services provided,” the executive summary reads. “Citizens rated the county image/ appearance with a higher positive ranking in all categories as compared to 2007, as well as significant reduction of negative ratings.”

According to Bednar’s presentation: » 71.4 percent of residents were satisfied with the county’s snow removal, 10.5 percent were dissatisfied, while 11.5 percent were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied and 1.5 percent of respondents never used the service » 69.4 percent of respondents are satisfied with the physical conditions of county roads, while 9 percent are dissatisfied, 16.3 percent are neither satisfied nor dissatisfied and less than 1 percent responded they never used county roads. Other services surveyed include the sheriff’s department, recreational facilities, drainage along roads and highways, recreational activities and program, animal control, planning and zoning services, building inspection, golf courses and code enforcements.

Boone leaders select design firm for Veterans Way extension By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — An extension of Veterans Way is closer to fruition with the Boone County Fiscal Court’s 4-0 approval of GRW Engineers as the preferred engineers for design services. A memo from county engineer Scott Pennington to county Administrator Jeff Earlywine says the project will extend Veterans Way from the existing county

road, near the R.C. Durr YMCA and Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, to North Bend Road (Ky. 237) and rehabilitate the existing Veterans Way between Ky. 18 and the proposed new alignment. According to Pennington in his memo, the project will also include a sidewalk or multiuse path and an additional turn lane at the Ky. 18 intersection. “The proposed project will provide the citizens of Boone

Earlywine said in a March 17 phone conversation the funds, known as SNK funds, are a portion of federal transportation money that flows through the state and has to be allocated through a metropolitan planning organization, such as OKI. The county, he said, has its allocation included in its capital improvement project budget.

Clark said. “Not a biased fan book, but a true history book about the rivalry that just chronicled each game. We both thought we would love to read that.” Clark says a book like this had never been written before. “I personally know friends in the sportswriting business – people who are real journalism celebrities – who wanted to

BURLINGTON — Stephens Elementary students are learning the value of recycling through the PTA’s Lids for Kids program. Students have collected more than 400 pounds worth of plastic lids to purchase a bench that will be placed on school property. “We’re trying to teach the students about where things go when you throw them away and how recycling can help,” said PTA’s Bee Green coordinator Julie Lee of Florence. “The kids will be able to look at this bench and know that we made this possible as school and community. We turned those recycled lids into something that all the school can use and will use forever.” The lids, which can’t be recycled locally, are collected, weighed and delivered to Green Tree Plastics in Indiana. Green Tree Plastics invites schools and community groups to collect plastic bottle caps and lids, and exchange them for 100 percent recycled outdoor benches and tables. The 6-foot bench Stephens recently received cost $200, plus 400 pounds of lids. The goal now is to collect 800 pounds of lids to purchase a picnic table for $400. Those interested in donating plastic lids can contact Lee at Lids for Kids started in August after the Boone County Solid Waste Management awarded the school a $1,000 grant to help in Stephens’ Be Green initiative. Florence resident and Stephens parent volunteer Angie Mercier said it’s important to teach children at a young age the benefits of being good stewards of the environment.

write this book but never did,” Clark said. “So Joe and I pitched the idea, and especially when Louisville won the national title last year, publishers got interested. This is the biggest rivalry in college basketball. The emotion and the characters involved are second to none. And it had to be written about.” “We write well together, work well together, we’re good friends and I’m glad we’ve been able to do it twice,” Cox said. “I look forward to whatever the future holds and hopefully we can do it again.” The competition between the two teams, which meet Friday in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, is fierce. “The fans hate each other, the coaches hate each other and when they

meet each year, the state almost boils over,” Clark said. “It’s the biggest thing in the state sportswise this side of the Kentucky Derby.” According to Clark, they get into the stories behind the games. “We talk to players who have overcome addiction of all kinds, horrible family lives and other adversity,” he said. “Fans will love these kids, no matter who they root for.” Clark and Cox will read from, discuss and sign “Fightin’ Words” 3 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 2785 Dixie Highway, Crestview Hills.


simple, but to help each child learn the most they can and become the most well-rounded person they can be. To do this, you have to get to know a child and why they are the child they are. Then, if they know you care, they care.” According to Mann Principal Connie Crigger, Willoughby is an “amazing” teacher because she takes the time to do just that. “Lisa has never, ever, ever complained about a child in her class,” she said. “Each child is very valuable to her. She makes kids believe in themselves. In her class, they know there isn’t anything they can’t achieve. She’s extremely caring and compassionate. The kids are always first with Lisa Willoughby.”

Four Gateway Community and Technical College students won a combined eight ADDY Awards in competition conducted by the Cincinnati chapter of the American Advertising Federation. Katrina Payne, a student from Independence who will graduate in May, won three Gold ADDYs for product packaging, personal stationery and a personal logo. Samantha Edmonson, a second-year student from Covington, won Gold ADDY for a book cover design, and a Silver ADDY, for a book illustration. Nicole Day of Walton and Nicole Papin of Union both won Silver ADDYs. Day, who will graduate in May, won two awards for the logo and stationery she designed for the Northern Kentucky incubator kitchen. Papin, a recent graduate, won a Silver award for her personal stationery design. All four are Visual Communication majors.

The work of all eight students will move forward to the district competition. Gold and Silver winners at the district level will move on to nationals.”

NKU signs dual degree pact with Korean university In January, Hansung University President Shin-il Kang traveled halfway around the world form Korea to visit with Northern Kentucky University President Geoffrey Mearns and sign a Dual Degree Agreement that was the first of its kind for either institution. The agreement will allow Korean students majoring in management or marketing to start their coursework at their home institution in Seoul and complete it at NKU, at which time they will earn degreesfrombothuniversities. It expands an already strong partnership between the two schools and could serve as a blueprint for similar agreements. “This partnership is an important one,” said Mearns. “Dual-degree agreements such as this one expand the opportunities for our students to study in foreign countries, and these agreements bring international students to our campus, thereby enriching the educational experience for all of our students.”

Kang was accompanied by JaeWhak Roh, dean of the Office of Planning Mearns and External Affairs at Hansung. Together they toured the NKU campus and met with nondegree-seeking Hansung University students currently studying at Northern on an existing exchange program. “The very fact that the president of Hansung University and the dean of external affairs traveled all this way to sign this agreement speaks volumes about the importance of it,” said François LeRoy, executive director of the NKU International Education Center. “This is not common. That is, usually when agreements are signed, it doesn’t involve one president traveling halfway around the world to sign it. We’ve grown to know each other to a level – some of us are on a firstname basis now. It is a friendship as well be-

tween the two schools.” Through the Dual Degree program, NKU is expected to enroll about five Hansung students per year and cannot exceed 10. This is in addition to non-degree-seeking Hansung students, of which there are currently 17. Students in the new program must complete at least 50 hours at Hansung before coming to NKU. “This is a new way of engaging our partner institutions beyond the standard student and faculty exchange,” said LeRoy. “This implies a very high level of trust between the two institutions. This is a high-functioning partnership and it makes sense that we should be doing this with Hansung.” Since the inauguration of the exchange program in 2007, 59 Hansung students have studied at NKU and15 Northern students have participated in the Hansung University Summer Program. NKU also has a partnership with Sookmyung Women’s University in Seoul.

Boone rivals battle it out in baseball By James Weber


prise, baseball is one of several sports where Boone County rivals are strong and competitive with each other. Here is a look at local baseball squads with the season just under way:

Boone County

The defending 33rd District champions were 16-16 last season and fell in the Ninth Region quarterfinals. Boone is ranked ninth in the coaches poll. The Rebels, district champs three of the last four years, return five starters for head coach Wayne Huff. Top players start with senior first baseman/ pitcher Trey Ganns, senior outfielder Austin Johnson, senior shortstop/pitcher Darien Huff, senior third baseman/catcher Trey Martin and junior infielder Brenden Stanley. Ganns, the team’s ace pitcher, has signed with newly Division I Northern Kentucky University. He struck out 77 batters in 55 innings in 2013 and also hit .349 at the plate. Huff is the No. 2 hurler and will play for Thomas More. Johnson hit .410 last season to lead the Rebels. Boone plays in the Harrison County tournament March 2829, starting off with the host team, the defending10th Region champions. Boone hosts Ryle April 2.


Brad Arlinghaus returns for his eighth year as head coach. Conner was 19-14 last year and lost in the 33rd District semifinals. Arlinghaus is six wins from the school record. The top returner is senior outfielder/pitcher Cameron Ross, who planned to sign with the University of Cincinnati last week as a preferred walk-on. A three-year starter, he hit .367 last year with 22 runs scored, 26 RBI and 11 stolen bases. The ace on the mound for the Cougars, he had a 3.40 ERA and 44 strikeouts in 39 innings. Senior Jared Williams is a three-year starter at shortstop. He hit .333 with 12 extra-base hits and 20 runs scored, and will provide strong defense and leadership. He has 22 career doubles and could reach the school record of 34. Senior Blake Hart is a threeyear starter at catcher. He hit .318 with two homers and 19 runs scored. He is 15 walks away from the school record. Junior third-baseman Jeffery Schneider had some experience last year and will be a key addition to the regular lineup. Junior Blaise Ostertag is an outfielder and pitcher who hit .341 with 17 RBI and 20 runs scored. The Cougars have little varsity experience besides those four. Ross and Ostertag lead the pitching staff with juniors Ryan Gosney and Ryan Ward other players to watch. Senior Dalton Harshburger looks to start at

second base. Conner hosts Campbell County Thursday, March 27 then plays at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 29, at La Salle. Conner hosts Dixie Heights April 2.


The Jaguars were 14-19 last year and welcome back 12 seniors who will try to make some noise amongst their stout county rivals in the 33rd District. The head coach is Jeremy Collins. Top players to watch start with senior outfielder/pitcher Luis Burgos, senior pitcher Hunter Dunn, senior catcher Cory Fussinger, senior outfielder/pitcher Colin Hathorn and senior outfielder/pitcher Jacob Lawhorn. Dunn has signed with Eastern Kentucky. Cooper hosts Beechwood at noon Saturday, March 29, and Campbell County at 5 p.m. Monday, March 31. Cooper is ranked eighth in the coaches poll.


The Raiders return three starters and two standout pitchers as they look to go back to the state tournament for the second straight year. Ryle was 32-8 a year ago for head coach Pat Roesel, winning the Ninth Region. The Raiders bounced back after being 33rd District runner-up. Five seniors make up the core of the team this season, starting with outfielders Mason Forbes and Eric Clarkson, and first baseman Tom Deters.

Pitchers Josh Bellew and Ethan Brennan lead the rotation. Bellew was 7-2 last season with a 2.10 ERA. Brennan was 4-1 with a 0.41 ERA and threw a shutout against Dixie Heights in the Ninth Region final. Forbes, the regional tournament most valuable player, hit .415 last season and drove in 24 while scoring 41 runs. Roesel’s chief concern is replacing the starting infield. Ryle hosts Dixie Heights in a regional final rematch 5 p.m. Friday, March 28 and plays at Hamilton Badin 2 p.m. Saturday, March 29 and at La Salle 5 p.m. Monday, March 31. Ryle plays at Boone Wednesday, April 2. Ryle is ranked third in the coaches poll.

St. Henry

The Crusaders were 17-19 last season and 34th District runner-ups, eventually falling in the Ninth Region semifinals. Drew Schmidt takes over as head coach this year. He inherits two returning starters. Players to watch include senior first baseman/pitcher Tony LaCorte, senior outfielder/pitcher Josh Kleisinger and junior infielder/ pitcher Rex Rogers. St. Henry plays a doubleheader at Shelby County Saturday, March 29, starting at11a.m. They play at Newport Monday, March 31, and at Glen Este Tuesday, April 1. St. Henry’s next home game is Wednesday, April 2, against nearby rival Lloyd.

Walton-Verona The Bearcats return six starters for head coach Kevin McIntyre, who has 265 career wins at the school. Players to watch include senior Christian Lohr, senior Andrew McWhorter, senior Daniel Tilley, sophomore Garrett Lekhamp and sophomore Daniel West. Lohr, a pitcher who already has three career no-hitters, has signed with Trevecca Nazarene. McIntyre said his team is hard-working and should be very solid defensively and be able to score runs. W-V hosts Simon Kenton Thursday, March 27, in a 32nd District seeding game, then plays at Brossart the next day. Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Covington Catholic rejoices in historic basketball title By James Weber

LEXINGTON — Ben Heppler stood at center court on the Rupp Arena floor and kept looking around at all the chaos and celebration around him. Chaos, celebration and cheer, same first letters as Covington Catholic Colonels, who were celebrating their first state basketball championship March 23. “I’m trying to soak it all in,” Heppler said. “I’ll remember this for the rest of my life.” Cov Cath outlasted Scott County in overtime, 59-51 Sunday afternoon, March 23, at the University of Kentucky’s historic basketball arena. It was the third title in Northern Kentucky history, and the second in the past six tournaments by a Ninth Region team (Holmes, 2009). It was also the first in Cov Cath history in its ninth trip to the Sweet 16. “It’s incredible,” said senior forward Mark Schult. “You dream of it, as a little kid, going out and winning your last game, and it’s hard to believe we actually did it.” The Colonels finished with a 33-2 record. After losing to Holmes in the 35th District final, the Colonels won seven straight games. They trailed in the second half in three of the four state tourney games. With a veteran team and most of the student body in attendance as the Colonel Crazies, it was a great day for Covington Catholic. “It’s so special,” said head coach Scott Ruthsatz. “You have to look at the administration on down, what they’re doing at Covington Catholic. You have to give so much credit to the Crazies. Our Colonel nation really supported us, and not just this game, all season long. Being the

first winner of it, it feels fantastic.” Said Heppler: “It’s really special to be the first ones and hang that first banner up there. We’ve always had that empty spot and since Coach Ruthsatz’s first day we said we would be the ones to put it up there. The 6 a.m. workouts in the summer, playing in the gym all those times, it paid off.” Cov Cath’s fitness and toughness in adversity paid off against the experienced Cardinals, who were seeking their third state title (35-4). After an early 9-3 lead, Cov Cath was on the wrong end of a 22-4 run and trailed 27-18 at halftime. Scott had three 3-pointers in a 70-second span by junior Hines Jones, who averaged four points a game for the year. Forward Tony Martini had Scott’s first five points and posted 17 points and 16 rebounds for the game. Cov Cath shot just 6-of-22 in the first half, several of those misses coming from around the rim. “We’ve been in this situation before and we knew we could pull through,” Nick Ruthsatz said. “We knew eventually we would start hitting some and the fourth quarter we just buckled down. All the conditioning through the summer pulled us through.” Cov Cath trailed by four points, 47-43, with 1:33 to go. Ruthsatz tied the game with a pair of foul shots with 51 seconds to play. Ruthsatz gave Cov Cath its first lead since 9-8 early in OT, then tied the game at 51 with 2:16 to play. A tip-in by junior Bo Schuh gave the Colonels the lead for good with 1:46 to play. After three missed shots by the Cardinals on their next possession, Ruthsatz grabbed the rebound and made two foul shots with 57 seconds to play to make it 55-51. Following anoth-

Cov Cath head coach Scott Ruthsatz talks to players as they look forward to collecting the state championship banner. Covington Catholic beat Scott County 59-51 in overtime in the KHSAA Sweet 16 state championship game March 23 at Rupp Arena. JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

“We just played better defense, tried to lock them down,” Heppler said. “That’s the experience of this team with three senior starters and Parker hit-

ting those huge free throws at the end. It’s a team game. Everybody can score. Most teams around the state don’t have five guys who can guard everybody so that works to our advantage.” Ruthsatz had 25 points and five assists. Schult had 12 points and six rebounds. Heppler scored eight with a pair of treys. Freshman guard Cole VonHandorf had nine points, and Schuh posted 12 rebounds. One of VonHandorf’s chief tasks was guarding Scott County star guard Trent Gilbert, who came in averaging 26 points per game. The Mr. Basketball finalist, who is getting interest from several Division I schools, only scored 10 points on 4-of-25 shooting. Cov Cath rotated several defenders on him and often double-teamed him in the backcourt. “We just tried to pressure him as much as possible, because we knew he’s a great shooter,” Scott Ruthsatz said. “You can never leave him open. We had a hint of the way he likes to go and shoot, and we tried to keep fresh guys on him.” The fatigue may have had a hand in two crucial foul-shot misses by Gilbert. A 91 percent shooter for the year, Gilbert made 28 in a row in the Sweet16. However, he missed the front ends of two one-and-one situations late in regulation. “I love stepping up and being able to shut him down,” VonHandorf said. “They told me if I shut him down, we win. I tried my best. He’s a great player, I’ll give him so many props. I can’t wait to see where he goes next year. (Assistant coach) Joe Fredrick told me all of his moves, I had them all down, I felt I could play him fairly well.”

Griffey Jr. ( Moeller High School, class of 1987), Oester (Withrow High School, 1974) and Parker (Courter Technical High School, 1970) will be inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame along with the late Jake Beckley during Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, Aug. 8-10. “This event is now an integral part of the high school baseball landscape in Cincinnati,” said Tom Gamble, In-Game Sports president and CEO. “It’s an honor to celebrate the history of local high school baseball by having great players from the past take part in our ceremonial first pitches during many of the games. ” Title sponsor Skyline

Chili and presenting sponsor Safeco Insurance will create interactive contests and promotions at each of the 36 games. At select games, ceremonial first pitches will be thrown out by some of the area’s greatest high school players to commemorate the rich tradition and heritage of high school baseball played in Greater Cincinnati. Tickets for the Reds Futures High School Showcase games are $5 and good for all games on that day. Each ticket includes a voucher good for a free View Level ticket to select 2014 Reds regular season games at Great American Ball Park and also includes a coupon for

Union rezoning not wanted

Love Alive Montessori Preschool student Luke Zumbiel, of Union, paints flowers with vegetables from the school garden.THANKS TO MARCY THOMPSON

Wrong veterans selected for hall of fame ing Medal of Honor recipients put more people in the seats at the dinner. Therefore the heroes that are no longer with us become less important. This in no way is meant to diminish the lives and accomplishments of any Medal of Honor recipient. They all deserve to be in the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame before anyone else. A look at the numbers is very revealing. There is no question that the four Medal of Honor recipients deserve to be there. Of the 23 others, 10 are from Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties. That means that 43 percent were selected from three of Kentucky’s 120 counties. That is not fair but also not surprising. That is because the Hall of Fame Foundation, all of their friends and associates are located in Northern Kentucky. The hall of fame is a great idea and I was proud to be a part of the foundation until I saw the selfserving decisions and actions of its leaders. By their actions, the leadership has disgraced the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame and cheapened the honor of being selected for induction. The selection of Deatherage and Bailey has given the hall of fame a big black eye from which it will never recover. Instead of hall of fame, it has become the hall of Shame. To give the hall any chance of survival, these two individuals must be removed. They must be removed from the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame and from the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation. Tom Dierig is a Vietnam veteran from 1968-1971. He lives in Independence.






Editor: Marc Emral,, 578-1053


For more than a year, I was a member of the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation, board of directors. During my time there, I observed how things were being run and I was disgusted by it. During discussions, much more emphasis was put on who could help the foundation rather than who actually deserved to be inducted. Seeing the hand writing on the wall and unable to do anything about it, I resigned my position on June 2, 2013. I find it Tom Dierig shocking COMMUNITY but not RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST surprising that two leading figures in the KVHOFF have been inducted in the first class. I believe the induction of the Executive Director and CEO H.B. Deatherage shows a complete disregard for ethics and the integrity of the board. Another inductee is Brandon Bailey who serves as chairman of the Selection Committee. His selection was also given help by the fact that his mother sat on the Selection Committee. I cannot believe the arrogance of these people to induct themselves into this hall and ignore so many more qualified and deserving veterans. While I was a member of the hall of fame board of directors, I campaigned hard to induct all 59 Kentucky Medal of Honor recipients in the first year. The Selection Committee decided to induct only the four living Medal of Honor recipients. Thus rejecting 55 of our state’s greatest heroes and voting for themselves with minor qualifications. I guess that liv-

I want to express my strong opposition to the request for rezoning land within the city limits of Union, namely in and around Route 42. With the new Marketplace opening on Mall Road there should be plenty of available shopping at that location for this area. My personal opinion is that allowing another Kroger store is all about tax money and politics, and not necessarily in that order. Someone here in Boone County is trying to make a name for themselves at the expense of the Harmony neighborhood and the community of Union. Carespring was smart enough to withdraw their request due to the majority of community support nixing the rezoning. In order for the Harmony community, as well as the city of Union, to continue to grow, it would be my recommendation that more time and effort be spent on finalizing the Mt. Zion Road relocation and Town Center Plan. The city of Union has the charisma of a small Kentucky town and I feel most of the citizens would support business efforts that coincide with the Town Center Plan. Our local senate representative living in Arbor Springs may be able to assist in future endeavors.

Businesses against Brent Spence tolls

The following business leaders of Northern Kentucky are united against tolls because we know the true cost to this com-

munity will be devastating. The governor’s highway plan calls for tolls to pay $1.78 billion for the proposed Brent Spence project. Despite baseless assertions to the contrary, $1 a trip is not going to cover that. Tolls in Louisville are being introduced at $1 but the fine print calls for increases as needed, and they will be needed. And, with $12 a trip truck tolls being proposed in Louisville, the cost to the commonwealth is unimaginable. Over 175,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily, with 65 percent of those vehicles being Northern Kentucky drivers. If those 113,750 drivers pay a toll of $2.50 a trip, it will cost Northern Kentucky almost $104 million a year. Those lost dollars then fail to circulate and affect our community. This will forever cripple Northern Kentucky. There is a much better way for Northern Kentucky to address this issue. In 1987 the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recommended that we reroute I-71 through I-75 and across southern Boone, Kenton and Campbell Counties crossing the Ohio River and linking the interstate to I-275 on the Ohio

side. This alternate route was envisioned to reduce traffic on the Brent Spence Bridge by well over thousands of cars a day. At the same time, it would add a new Ohio/Kentucky crossing and open up vast areas for development and create tremendous growth in both Ohio and Kentucky. This would also immediately take a large amount of traffic away from the I-75 bridge in Covington. The promise of new commercial, industrial and residential developments will mean jobs, jobs and jobs – a large capital infusion into our economy. This a far better way for the Northern Kentucky region and the state of Kentucky to spend our hardearned money. We, the following Northern Kentucky based businesses, are against tolls and for alternative solutions. Please vote against tolls and HB 407.

What’s your vision for Northern Kentucky? How would you invest $100,000 in our community, if you had the chance? I answered that question on, where I chose to invest $100,000 in virtual dollars into education, and more specifically, early childhood education, while playing the myNKY community priority game. Have you heard about myNKY? It’s a sixmonth community visioning campaign that launched in January to engage residents, educators, politicians Jordan and businesses Huizenga in determining the priorities COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST for Northern COLUMNIST Kentucky’s next five-year strategic plan. I chose to invest in education because I see it as a great equalizer of opportunity, helping ensure the future success of all children, and in turn their communities, regardless of their socioeconomic status. In fact, programs supporting children can’t start early enough—research shows the importance of early child development and its positive effect on later academic and social progress. Closer to home, the recent

release of kindergarten readiness data shows that in Northern Kentucky only 53 percent of children are ready for kindergarten. This sobering fact should drive Northern Kentuckians to act by promoting, encouraging and investing in quality early education programs for children, making education initiatives a key priority for our region. Programs like home visitation for first-time moms, initiatives to grow the number of high-quality child care spots available, social and emotional development for young students and programs that create more stable families so children can be successful. This is where we need to invest our money. There are few opportunities and initiatives designed to catapult Northern Kentucky farther and faster than those in the early childhood realm. It’s a fact – investing in children means investing in our future. One way you can do that is following my lead and visiting, the hub for collecting community input in developing the next five-year strategic plan. The site features an interactive prioritization game and a variety of polls and challenge questions on the topic of education, as well as others such as transportation, health & wellness, and jobs.

lending your opinion and your voice will affect the direction of the next strategic plan, which guides lawmakers and community movers and shakers when it comes time to invest public funds. Ask yourself, “What one thing can be done to improve the quality of life in Northern Kentucky?” While you may answer differently than I did, your input during the myNKY campaign could make the difference in making Northern Kentucky a better community. Whether you do it online or in-person, myNKY is your chance to tell Vision 2015 what areas you believe will move the region forward. Let’s talk about our future. Let’s talk about our priorities. Let’s make our voices heard. Jordan Huizenga is the director of development for Children Inc.

Rita discusses cookware just in time for bridal season No recipes today! I’m veering off course and getting on my soapbox about cookware. We’re going into the busy bridal season and I get more questions about cookware and cutlery than you’d believe. Here’s a primer of sorts on cookware – in a future column we’ll chat about cutlery. Cut this column out and arm yourself with it when you shop for cookware. Buying cookware can be confusing to say the least. Should you Rita go by Heikenfeld price? By RITA’S KITCHEN looks? By popularity? Buy individual pieces or sets? Do some soul searching, think about the way you cook, your lifestyle, and pick cookware that will serve you best. Cook’s Illustrated has some timely information on their site about cookware choices. For the most part, you get what you pay for, especially when it comes to stainless steel and cast iron. The cookware that will last a lifetime isn’t going to be inexpensive, but you know what? In the long run, you’ll save time, money, the environment and, maybe most important, your sanity! Material: It can be stainless steel, aluminum, anodized aluminum, copper with a tinned or stainless inside surface, cast iron, cast iron with enameled inside, ceramic, tempered glass and nonstick, to name just a few. Clad stainless steel. On its own, stainless is a poor conductor of heat. Buy a stainless pan with copper or aluminum in it. The best cookware is “clad” which means it has aluminum or copper core that is sandwiched, or clad, between stainless steel. It’s also called triple or five-ply. There are two kinds of clad: Fully clad like what I just described where the sandwiched core extends from the bottom of the pan all the way up the sides (creating layers) or bottom clad which have a disk of aluminum or copper on the bottom only. Both perform well, but the fully clad is my

choice and the highest quality. All Clad pans, made in Pennsylvania, are tops in my book. You can use metal utensils. Aluminum. Look for anodized aluminum, which means the pan has been put through a process that changes the aluminum structure to be non-reactive to foods, just like stainless, and you can use metal utensils. You get great browning with this cookware. Copper. Best conductor of heat but often the most expensive and needs maintaining to look good. Awesome brown-

ing. You can use metal utensils. Cast iron. I call this the original nonstick. Heats up slowly and retains heat. When we left home, Mom gave us one of her heirloom cast iron skillets. I won’t fry my kibbi patties in anything else. Made in the USA, these are treasures. If you find one at a garage sale that’s made in the USA, snatch it up! Lodge, Wagner and Griswold are familiar names. The downside is cast iron is heavy and needs to be seasoned, and dried right away after cleaning. The

Mary, Queen of Heaven School

perk is you get a boost of iron when you cook with it. There are now cast

iron pieces that are preseasoned. Metal utensils are OK. Enameled cast iron. My time-honored Le Creuset, which doubles as a Dutch oven, has an enameled cooking surface, which gives the benefit of cast iron without the angst. Great browning qualities. Best to use silicone or wooden utensils. Nonstick. There is a lot of debate about this being a safe cooking surface. My research indicates that Tefloncoated pans are considered safe as long as they’re not overheated or peeling/flaking. “Green pans,” nonstick pans with a ceramic-type safe coating, are popular now. Nonsticks do not brown as well, for the most part, as regular pans, but they’re wonderful for eggs, waffles, cheese sandwiches, low-fat cooking, etc. You need no oil

Stephenson Mill offers fresh Take in a take on historic Walton spot fish fry By Amy Scalf

WALTON — Jordan Stephenson is putting a lot on his plate. The 28-year-old lifelong Kenton County resident is starting a new restaurant featuring fresh, locallysourced, organic ingredients in a location known as much for its illicit history as its good food. Stephenson Mill Tavern and Grill, at 14042 Dixie Highway, was called the Woodland Inn in the 1940s, and then-owner Glenn “Bulldog” Wright” boasted the area’s best prime rib while rumors lingered about illegal gambling and a brothel operating out of the rural eatery. “I remember coming here with my dad, Jimmy Ray,” said Stephenson. “We’d ride here in his ‘72 GMC truck, and we’d get two shrimp cocktails each. They cost $7.50 for five jumbo shrimp.” He’s considering naming the shrimp cocktail for his dad, or maybe bar manager Rachel Isaacs will craft a signature cocktail in his honor. Isaacs won 2012’s Not Your Pink Drink contest from the Bourbon Women Association with her bourbon-based or-

ange-flavored martini, Not Your Subourbon Housewife. She will be crafting more exclusive beverages cleverly named to highlight the restaurant’s history, which includes more of Stephenson’s family history. “Beth Turner and Jimmy Ray Stephenson, those lovebirds, met out here in the spring of 1982. This is the place where people meet,” said Stephenson. “I want to bring it back to its legendary status. It doesn’t need to be another roadside hole-in-thewall. It can be a classy place where people can hold wedding receptions or special dinners.” Stephenson plans a casual family-friendly menu that features all-natural hot dogs for the kids as well as sustainably-farmed pasture-raised chicken and local produce their parents can feel good about. “I’ve read about chicken wings being shipped to China to get broken down, then shipped back here. How does that even work? I want people to feel really confident about the meats we serve here,” said Stephenson. Many of the farms providing ingredients are nearby. Stephenson’s poultry producer is Rising Phoenix Farm in Morning View, and he’ll get

cheese from Ed-Mar Dairy, both of which are about six miles away. He’s even arranged to get bottled pure spring water from Climax, Ky., and for each bottle Stephenson sells, he plans to contribute 50 cents to a water-affiliated charity. His ground beef for burgers will come from Elmwood Stock Farm in Georgetown, and he plans to get specialties like lamb bacon from Smoking Goose Meatery in Indianapolis. “That’s not from Kentucky, unfortunately,” he said. “Everything we can provide from Kentucky, we will. I learned about the Kentucky Proud program, and without that, I wouldn’t have been able to find these farms. I’m lucky there are so many great farms so close. I want to help make people aware of the benefits of eating locally. Let’s get it in their brains. It’s better for your heart and better for the environment.” Stephenson said he has always loved to cook. “I am just the type of person who likes to get a new spice and then learn about it and how I can use it in different ways. I like using new ingredients. I just like really well-executed simple food. Good food isn’t complicated,”

he said. “I’m just going to make good food simply for regular people.” A former property manager and part-time poker player, Stephenson has spent the past five months cleaning and renovating the restaurant, tearing out old carpet and removing the white ceramic tile to update with concrete and uncover hardwood flooring, perfect for a dance floor. Rows of light green upholstered stools line the bar, and other seating is available at high-top and regular tables. A side room that seats 24 is available for private gatherings. “There’s no place in Northern Kentucky, south of Covington that has any kind of personality at all,” Stephenson said. “Everything about us here is special and neat. We’re going to provide an awesome service for the community.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @AmyScalfNky

Church, Redwood partner on mission trip Crossroads Church invited Redwood to participate in a mission trip to South Africa in October. Redwood’s chief development officer Telly McGaha was selected to participate. “It was a fantastic opportunity for Redwood,” McGaha says, “to share what we’ve learned about delivery of disability services to a grass roots agency.” Crossroads has been partnering with and working in South Africa for nine years. “We recently learned about and began exploring a potential partnership with the Bophelong Stimulation Centre,” says Rob Seddon, Crossroads’ director of South Africa initiatives, “and Redwood’s name immediately came up as some-

one we should invite to the table.” The Bophelong Stimulation Centre was started in 2010 by a widow who recognized the unmet needs of children with disabilities in her community. The center serves 40 individuals ranging from toddlers to young adults. “It was interesting to talk with the founder,” said McGaha, “and hear the similarities between her and the people who recognized a need for Redwood in Northern Kentucky 60 years ago.” He said that in South Africa people with disabilities are shunned, many confined to their homes and forced to stay out-of-sight. The center is addressing this by providing a safe place for children and adolescents to come and interact.

McGaha said Redwood can be of best service to the center by encouraging capacity building through program development. To that end, Redwood has a few projects in the works. This month, Crossroads will fly the leaders of Topsy Foundation, the South African organization that works closely with Bophelong and made the introduction, to Cincinnati to continue partnership discussions. “Redwood is the place where abilities grow. The most important thing we can do for Bophelong is to arm the leaders and employees with knowledge and best practices,” said McGaha. The young adults in Redwood’s Young Adult Transition program also

will host a charity drive benefiting the Bophelong Stimulation Centre in upcoming months. The goal is to provide a portion of the educational supplies and equipment that are desperately needed. “They have so many needs that it almost seems insurmountable when you consider the few resources available to them on the surface, as well as the stigmatization people with disabilities face in South Africa,” McGaha said. “But you look at Redwood’s amazing 60 years and you realize two things: Anything is possible ... it just takes time and other people caring.” For more information about Redwood please call 859-331-0880 or visit

Schools raise money for cold shelter The third annual Covington Catholic vs. Notre Dame Academy volleyball game Jan. 29 raises money for the Emergency Cold Shelter of Northern Kentucky. About 600 students, faculty, staff and parents were in attendance in NDA’s gym and raised $2,500. Shelter Director Rachael Winters was on hand to cheer on the teams. The first game featured the NDA volleyball team against the CCH

guys. The faculties of both schools played in the second. The Emergency Cold Shelter of Northern Kentucky opened for the first time in the winter of 2008 as the region’s only cold weather shelter for adults. In the summer of 2010, it began providing shelter during the warmer months for men who are working toward achieving housing, income and improvement of health.

Habits, attitudes shape how we managed money Diane Mason Extension Notes

“Habitude” is a combination of habits and attitudes that influence our actions and behaviors. Attitudes are our subconscious thoughts and feelings. Habits are what we do without thinking. Our money habitudes are a result of the messages you received and the experiences you had while growing up. Some

messages may have been very clear – like your parents requiring that you save at least 10 percent of any money you received as a gift. Other messages were more subtle – you noticed your parents spending more money on special foods to impress certain guests even though they had to sacrifice to purchase the items. Sources of influence on our habitudes are our personality, our family, our

own experiences, our culture and the society in which we live, our spiritual beliefs or religion, and the media. Understanding our upbringing and backgrounds may give us insight into how we handle and manage our money today. We may also realize that our money habits and attitudes have changed over time. Our habits and attitudes may be grouped into

at least six general categories: planner, free spirit, security seeker, giver, status seeker, or spontaneous. Most people have qualities that fall into several of the categories. However, we usually have a dominant money habitude. All money habitude groupings have both positive features and challenges. For example, a planner may have specific targeted goals that help them

Toyota names outstanding women of Northern Kentucky Toyota, the lead sponsor of the Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky awards, has named the 2014 honorees. The annual awards celebrate women who have demonstrated leadership in their home, profession, or community. Prior to 2007, The Kentucky Post was lead sponsor of the luncheon program since presenting the first group of honorees. In 2014, the Outstanding Women award celebrates 30 years of honoring nearly 150 women for distinguished service in their professions or to the Northern Kentucky community and who exhibit qualities of personal integrity, perseverance, and leadership. The 2014 honorees are: » Cindy Carris » Jeanne Schroer

» Debbie Simpson » Jeanne-Marie Tapke, PhD » Emerging Leader – Crystal Gibson » Special 30th Anniversary Celebration Award – Bennie Doggett » The Henrietta Cleveland Inspiring Women Award – Christina Rust » New award this year – The Helen Carroll Champion of Education Award – Polly Page Helen Carroll, Toyota’s community relations manager, was instrumental in the continuation of this awards program after the Kentucky Post ended its sponsorship in 2006. Since then, more than 40 women’s stories have been told and another 18 have received scholarships. The awards committee named this award in her honor as she is

viewed as a true Champion of Education, as is the first recipient, Polly Page, executive director, Northern Kentucky Education Council. Additionally the awards are co-sponsored by Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College and Gateway Community and Technical College. Each year, Toyota and the three colleges fund one $2,000 scholarship for each school. These scholarships will be designated for a deserving female college student who exhibits the same qualities of the Outstanding Women honorees. The 2014 scholarship honorees are: » Gateway Community and Technical College – Betty Cordray » Northern Kentucky

University – Melissa Tatum » Thomas More College – Melisa AlJamal The 2014 Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky luncheon and awards ceremony will be noon Wednesday, April 30, at Receptions in Erlanger. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are $30 per person or $300 for a table of 10. Advance reservations required. Checks made payable to LARaterman Associates can be sent to OWNK, c/o LARaterman Associates, 412 Pickett Court, Fort Wright, Ky., 41011. For reservations you may also call 859-5789720 or

succeed in life. On the other hand, they may find they are workaholics who are so focused on a money goal that they miss having fun or miss opportunities that would have led to even greater success and happiness. Take some time to think back on your life experiences to see what has shaped your money habits and attitudes. Are you content with how you manage your money? Is

there something you should consider changing? Are you and your significant other in sync with money management? Knowing what has influenced your money habits may help you improve in the future.

Asparagus definitely worth planting Question: Since it takes a few years to start harvesting asparagus, do you think it is even worth planting? Answer: Asparagus is definitely worth growing in your own garden. It can get quite expensive in the store, and the quality is just not as good as freshpicked. I have talked to many gardeners who love to eat asparagus, but they never planted it just because you can’t harvest it right away. But just think: if you had planted it last spring, you could enjoy eating it Mike about three weeks from now, plus Klahr each spring hereafter for many HORTICULTURE years, with little to no care. CONCERNS Asparagus is a perennial vegetable that, once established, may live 15-30 years. Locate asparagus to one side of the garden where it will not be disturbed. It is one of the most valuable early vegetables and is well adapted to freezer storage. The spears develop daily in early spring (usually ready by mid-to-late April), with the rate of emergence increasing as temperatures increase. When planting asparagus crowns, set plants 15 to 18 inches apart in rows 30 inches apart. The fleshy roots, which may spread laterally under the soil several feet from the rhizomes, store food reserves that help develop the tender shoots the next spring. Soil type determines the depth to plant crowns. Usually they are planted in a trench 12 to 15 inches wide and 6 to 8 inches deep. Plant at the shallower depth if the soil is heavy clay. Incorporate rotted manure or compost, plus fertilizer, into the soil before setting the crowns because little organic matter can be added later. Place the crown on a small amount of soil in the trench, allowing it to be slightly higher than the roots. Spread the roots out and cover the crown with 2 to 3 inches of soil. Firm down well. As plants begin to grow, continue to put more soil around and over the crowns until the trench is filled. Asparagus shoots or spears should not be harvested the first year after crowns are set. Limit harvests the second year after planting to three to four weeks, then let the ferns grow. This procedure is necessary so that the root system will develop from its limited size and will store food reserves to produce growth the next year. Plants harvested too heavily too early after setting may become weakened and spindly. After the third year, harvests can be continued for eight to ten weeks. Harvest spears daily when they are 5 to 7 inches tall. Break them off at the soil level instead of cutting below the soil surface. Cutting can easily injure the crown buds which produce the next spears. Harvest in early morning and use or refrigerate immediately. Each year in the early spring, side-dress (fertilize) asparagus with 1 pound of 5-10-10 fertilizer per 100 square feet. Following freezing weather in the fall, or else in the early spring, remove the dead asparagus tops to decrease disease problems.

Workshop offers help, hope to parents Community Recorder

Tawnya Kordenbrock, LPCA, a mental health therapist in Independence, is hosting a free workshop for parents, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. April 12 at the William E. Durr Branch Library on Walton-Nicholson Road in Independence. The workshop, “Healthy Boundaries with Your Adult Child,” is designed to help parents better handle the relationships with their adult children. An August 2013 Pew Research Center report showed that 36 percent of adults aged 18-31 were still living with their parents.

“Parents of today’s adult children have a lot to contend with,” Kordenbrock said. “Not only do they have concerns about aging parents, they also have the pain of helping their adult kids get untangled from their selfimposed troubles. “When our children become adults, a shift occurs in the relationship. This shift requires parents to interact with their young adults differently. It’s hard to make that shift.” For more information, call Kordenbrock at 859-468-7534, or sign up for the workshop at workshops.

Fuzz Ball will benefit Hebron animal rescue By Stephanie Salmons

Hebron-based nonprofit Paws and Claws Animal Rescue will hold its inaugural Fuzz Ball April 12 to help raise money for its vetting fund. Founder Angie More is with Mama Patches, a dog new to the rescue with road rash over her body. THANKS

HEBRON — Hebron-based nonprofit Paws and Claws Animal Rescue will host its inaugural Fuzz Ball to raise money for the four-legged fuzzballs they’re helping. The Fuzz Ball is 6-10 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at Highland Country Club, 931 Alexandria Pike, Fort Thomas. Tickets are $40 per person if purchased by April 4, and includes dinner, beer and wine. The fundraiser also features a photo booth, slide show, silent auction and music. After April 4, the cost is $50. Paws and Claws founder Angie More said the goal is to sell out the event, which is 200 people. All money will go into the organization’s vetting fund for veterinary costs, More said, “because we have such high vet bills.” Organizers are still searching for sponsors and silent auction donations. There are different levels of sponsorships, More said, and donations can be anything, from gift baskets, gift cards, jewelry and more. Though it’s just the first year, More anticipates it will be an annual fundraiser. “This is our inaugural year and we’re going to do it every year to help so that we can continue to save more animals,” she said. The idea behind the Fuzz Ball is one that’s been kicked around for two years, but More said she never really knew how to go about doing it because there’s so much involved with it.


So the organization formed a fundraising committee with “some experienced fundraising people that’s really helping us out so we can do it right the first time,” she said. “It’s just so hard to get grants, especially for foster-based rescues when you don’t have a facility. We rely on donations and usually our adoption fees don’t even cover the amount we’ve put into the vetting of the animals.” Paws and Claws began operations in 2012. More says a lot of the group’s focus are animals in the shelters who are over looked or will not be placed for adoption because of their health or medical condi-

tions. They focus on dogs and cats that typically come from euthanasia lists at different shelters. More said they were able to help nearly 70 animals in 2012 and 98 in 2013. They’ve already helped 21 animals this year. “So we’re looking at blowing our 2013 numbers out of the water, which is why we’re really in desperate need for this fundraiser,” she said.

More than beans, coffee is about connecting By Melissa Stewart


FLORENCE — Coffee is about more than beans, according to Tim Stiffler-Dean. It is about connecting people. “It’s a drink that allows us to have community with each other,” he said. “It’s a common ground to talk about anything to grow their communities and achieve their goals. It bridges gaps and removes division between people. It gives us something to create community with.” Stiffler-Dean recently opened Guddina Coffee inside Velocity Bike & Bean, 7560 Burlington Pike, Florence. Velocity is your not-so-typical full-service bike shop that also brews and serves coffee. Velocity co-owner Mark Ball said he and his wife and business partner Lisa Ball are excited to have Stiffler-Dean in house. “Tim’s philosophy compliments ours, in that we both desire to see our community become a better place. A sense of community is the heart of the coffee culture,” he said. “We don’t want to be just another local coffee shop, but rather a place where friends, families and neighbors can meet and connect in a warm, welcoming atmosphere.” Stiffler-Dean, who has a background in technology, discovered the world of coffee in 2011 when he started working at Boston Stoker, a coffee company in his hometown of Dayton, Ohio. His passion grew as he traveled the country tasting coffees. The 25 year old, who now lives in Florence, has worked for some of the best coffee roasters in the Midwest. “Coffee is an extremely exciting world,” he said.

As a result of the addition of Guddina Coffee, Velocity Bike & Bean are now open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. For more information, visit

With a team of three friends – Jon Zilber based in San Francisco, Alice Carback, based in Boston and Jarred Cundith in Denver – they started Guddina Coffee Club, a coffee subscription service. Every two weeks subscribers are sent four coffees from craft roasters from four different countries. StifflerDean said that all of Guddina’s coffees are ethically sourced. The name Guddina was chosen for the business because its is an Ethiopian Oromo word which translates as “to grow” or “to achieve.” “We want to see people grow,” he said. “Coffee can help people do that. People drink coffee in the morning to help them through their day. We have some really amazing people in the world who do some amazing things.” Stiffler-Dean opened Guddina in coffee shop format earlier this month to help raise money for an app he is working on that will allow users to find locallyowned coffee shops. The goal, he said, is to provide an opportunity for people to gather at a destination that inspires conversation. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports
