Can you guess the Mystery Photo?

WALTON - City Council member Ann Leake died Sunday, June 5. Leake was born July 22, 1935, and lived in Walton more than 30 years. She was the valedictorian at New Haven High School in Union in 1953. Leake retired from the Cincinnati Gas & Electric Co. and then spent five years as the Walton City Clerk. She served on Walton City Council for nine years along with the board of directors for the Boone County Historical Society

among other roles in the community. Leake, 75, leaves a strong legacy in Walton as she was part of City Council’s economic develLeake opment committee that helped bring in the Walton Towne Center and worked closely with former council member Lee Frakes to build the Walton Veterans Memorial. “She was there for all of the big changes in Walton,” Frakes said. Leake and former Walton Mayor Phillip Trzop were close

friends, and during her illness, he visited her every week. “She was a fighter to the last day,” Trzop said. Leake always treated everyone as equals and worked hard to help, he said. “She may not have had all the answers, but she’d find out,” Trzop said. Leake was an active member at Walton First Baptist Church. During her time at the church, Leake was the church clerk, church historian, Sunday school teacher and Baptist Women leader. For about five years, she has co-authored the Walton community news in the Boone County Recorder with

Ruth Meadows. “She was a loyal friend,” Meadows said. Leake was a person who was true in her beliefs and any position she took on, whether it was City Council, the historical society or any position in church, Leake always strived to do it the best she could, Meadows said. “We all appreciate Ann’s journey with us,” she said. Funeral services are scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday, June 9, at Chambers & Grubbs Funeral Home at 45 North Main St. in Walton. Visitation will last from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Billy Hancock of Florence was shocked when he was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 26. He worked out five times a week and ate well, he said. Hancock began getting dizzy spells and Hancock headaches. One night, he ended up in the emergency room because he was so sick. That’s when the cancer was found. The brain tumor, an aggressive cancer known as medulloblastoma, was the size of a tennis ball by the time it was discovered, he said. Doctors told Hancock that found any later, he would have only had weeks left. Before surgery, the prognosis wasn’t great. The tumor was near the area of the brain responsible for balance. His doctor said along with the potential of paralysis, total memory loss and having to re-learn basic tasks like walking and talking, there was the possibility that he would not wake up. “I knew about cancer, but I didn’t really understand it,” Hancock, now 33, said. “Now, it really opened my eyes.” He has participated in the Boone County Relay for Life for four years. Relay for Life is an annual event that aims to celebrate cancer survivors and raise money for cancer research and the American Cancer Society, according to the

Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. “I walk all night,” he said. “I think it’s a great event.” Relay is important even if someone hasn’t experienced cancer themselves, he said, because cancer can happen to anyone at any time.

“A snap of the finger, it can change your life,” he said. LaVerne Lawson, 73, of Florence has also been participating in Relay since she was first diagnosed with colon cancer nine years ago. She was diagnosed with cancer again, this time skin cancer, a year ago. “Everybody should know cancer is a bad thing,” she said. People never know when it

could happen to them, Lawson said. Anyone who can go to Relay and donate to the cancer society should, Lawson said. “Everything helps,” she said. Boone County’s Relay for Life celebration begins at 7 p.m. Friday, June 17, and will end at 7 a.m. Saturday, June 18. It will take place at Cooper High School.

Union seeks host families for visiting troops UNION - The city of Union has been supporting U.S. troops for more than a year. Last year, they began to participate in an “Adopt-a-Unit” program, where they collected toiletries and non-perishable items to send a Fort Campbell unit stationed in Afghanistan. Now, the city will welcom nearly 60 of the soldiers and their fam-

ily members to the city July 1-3. They will be grand marshals of the Union Celebrates America parade beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, July 1, and honored at the fireworks that will follow. The Adopt-a-Unit program is looking for people to host soldiers and/or their families over the July 1-3 weekend. Families can host just one soldier or an entire fami-

ly. Donations are also needed for hotel rooms and other expenses in cases where host families are not available. The guests will also be guests of honor at the Cincinnati Reds vs. Cleveland Indians baseball game on Saturday, July 2. Tickets are on sale for this game for $24 each, $5 of which goes toward purchasing tickets for the soldiers. Tickets

are available for purchase at the Union City Building. For more information on becoming a host family, buying baseball tickets or donating, contact Karen Franxman at union cityevents@insightbb.com or visit of the city of Union website, www.cityofunionky.org.

The North Pointe Elementary choir performs at the Hebron Remke store.

North Pointe, Remke partnership honored By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

HEBRON - North Pointe Elementary and the Hebron Remke’s store were recently recognized as gold standard B.E.S.T (Business Education Success Team) partners by the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Gold standard partnerships supply measurable results and impact and provide equal benefits to both the school and business. These partnerships must also implement high-impact initiatives and affect the community through partnership activities. Over the past year, Remke’s has partnered with the school for a number of

THANKS TO JIM WOOD

North Pointe Elementary students thanked the Hebron Remke store for the school’s fall decorations. events, store director Jim Wood said, including a reading event and the school’s 5K “Panther Prowl.” Remke’s also decorated the school for fall and offered the choir a place to perform its winter concert, he said. “We want to be an integral part of doing positive things for the school ... This is a local company. It’s not a big national chain, so it’s important that we get involved in the schools and work on that relationship with the community,” Wood said. North Pointe assistant principal Beverly Simon said the school has had a relationship with the store through the years, but as needs were expanding and the store’s interest in the community grew, “it really just developed into a larger,

Now Ope

more significant relationship.” But the partnership doesn’t just benefit the school, North Pointe Principal Jo Craven said. “It mutually benefits the school and the business.” According to Simon, for example, when the choir performed at the store, Remke’s also benefited because families could then buy their lunch at the store store cafe. Both Craven and Wood said they would like the partnership to continue to support the same programs as well as increase involvement. “We are really working on building that community/school/business relationship,” Craven said. “We work with several businesses and really, I think any of our partnerships could have been recognized ... I think

it’s a key connection for schools.” North Pointe’s partnership with Arlinghaus Builders was also recognized as a gold standard B.E.S.T. partnership. One of the school’s fourth-grade classes worked on a service learning project where they created a nature trail in the green space of an Arlinghaus development, Craven said. “We’re just at the beginning of expanding our relationships with the businesses in the community,” Simon said. “And as excited as we are about these partnerships, there are other folks in the community that are able to help us in a lot of ways.” Other Boone County B.E.S.T. partnerships recognized include: • Longbranch Elementary and the Northern Kentucky Health Department • Boone County High School and Citi • Conner High School and Ellison Surface Technologies • Goodridge Elementary and Citi • Conner High School and Citi • Collins Elementary and The Bank of Kentucky • Ryle High School and PNC Bank • Stephens Elementary and The Bank of Kentucky • Ockerman Middle School and Schwan’s Global Supply Chain

WALTON - Arthur Clay Green still gets up very early to take care of the animals on his 70-acre farm, and works until after sunset. But now he holds his head a little higher and his back a little straighter. On Saturday, at age 67, Green received his high school diploma. At a special ceremony during a meeting of the Walton-Verona Alumni Association, Green was called up on stage in his cap and gown, and was presented with the diploma by Ken Lucas, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Veteran Affairs. “It was one of the greatest feelings I ever had in my life,” Green said. “My wife, Roselle, my son, Clint, my daughter, Cynthia, and my seven grandchildren were all there to see me graduate, plus a lot of the people who went to school with me at Walton-Verona. It was so great to see everybody again, especially at this special time in my life.” Green grew up in Walton, where he lived with his parents in a four-room house with no hot water and an outhouse in the back. He went to high school, but felt as the youngest child, he needed to help his parents by working. Unable to find a job, he quit school just before his 17th birthday and still couldn���t find work. In 1960 the Bay of Pigs crisis in Cuba was heating up, so Green asked his father if he could enlist in the Navy. His father signed him up. “They put me on an aircraft carrier and I spent most of my time in Cuba,” Green remembered. “I got married to Roselle, who I met at a roller rink in Walton, and she moved to

Rhode Island because that was where my ship docked. Whenever I was in the port, Roselle and I worked on my school work and I got my GED. I didn’t realize that I really wanted my diploma then, because I had a baby and I was busy with life. “But as the years went by, I knew I wanted it. And when I saw other veterans being able to get their diplomas, I thought, why can’t I get mine?” Bill Boyle, superintendent of Walton-Verona schools, suggested to Dennis Glacken, a volunteer for the Kentucky Department of Veteran Affairs, that Green should get his diploma. So Glacken went to work on it, and the result was a shining moment for Green Saturday night. “Art Green did all the work for his GED and that qualifies him for his diploma,” said Glacken, who has helped about 20 veterans obtain their diplomas in recent years. “He could have walked down the aisle with the graduating class of seniors, but he chose to get the diploma at the alumni dinner.” Boyle was proud of Green. “These guys are well deserving,” Boyle said. “Usually they only had a little time to go when they quit school to serve their country. You know, there is more than one way to learn.” “I was in the Navy for three years, seven months and 23 days,” said Green. “I never regretted any of it. My kids both finished college, and since I retired from driving a big rig in 2001, life has slowed down a bit, and I knew this was something I wanted to do. “It was a proud moment, and my diploma is framed in the living room where you can see it when you come in the front door, just where I want it.”

Burlington rallies to support tornado victims Not too long ago, it felt as if a day didn’t go by without rain or storms in Northern Kentucky. The community became accustomed to various sirens, warnings and weather radar, but that doesn’t mean we forgot how fortunate we are. On Saturday, June 11, at the R.C. Durr YMCA, several Zumba instructors from Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati will donate their time to lead two hours of heart-pumping Zumba for a fundraising event benefiting the recent tornado victims of Alabama. Hours are 4-6 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door which includes an

event T-shirt for the first 100 people and two hours of Zumba. Organizers are grateful to the community of Burlington for being so generous for this event. The R.C. Durr YMCA is donating its gym to host the event; Idlebrook Promotions is helping with the T-shirt printing and local restaurants Washington Square Cafe, Central House Diner and Tousey House Tavern have made donations. Boone County native and former Alabama running back and NFL MVP Shaun Alexander is helping the cause by donating autographed items for raffle prizes.

“ This new valve can save lives

IN INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY NOT OTHERWISE BE GIVEN

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SURGICAL VALVE REPLACEMENT.” DR. DEAN KEREIAKES, PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR FOR THE PARTNER II TRIAL OF TRANSCATHETER AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT AT THE CHRIST HOSPITAL HEART AND VASCULAR CENTER

Cardiologists with The Christ Hospital Are First in Greater Cincinnati Region to Perform Heart Valve Replacement without Open Heart Surgery Aortic stenosis (AS) results from the hardening or narrowing of the aortic valve; AS obstructs the flow of oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. It is one of the two most common heart valve problems in the United States and ranks among the top five Medicare cardiac diagnoses. Patients with severe AS may experience chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, lightheadedness or fainting. Although AS typically progresses slowly without symptoms, once symptoms occur the prognosis is guarded and survival is limited. Treatment of AS has traditionally involved open heart surgical valve replacement, which has considerable morbidity and mortality in elderly, frail individuals with complicating medical issues. Now, physicians at The Carl and Edyth Lindner Center for Research and Education at The Christ Hospital are involved in a clinical research study (The PARTNER II Trial) using the Edwards SAPIEN XT valve. This allows doctors to replace the aortic valve without open heart surgery by using a catheter instead. The Christ Hospital is the only center between Atlanta, Georgia and Cleveland, Ohio to offer this novel, less invasive valve trial. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) provides a treatment option for patients with symptomatic AS who are not candidates for traditional valve replacement surgery. “Unfortunately, elderly patients with multiple medical problems may not survive traditional valve surgery,” says Dean Kereiakes, M.D., principal investigator in Cincinnati for The PARTNER II Trial and medical director at The Lindner Center for Research and Education and The Christ Hospital Heart and Vascular Center. “Our goal in joining The PARTNER II Trial is to provide a new treatment option and hope for these individuals.”

PATIENT STORIES “I couldn’t walk 20 feet without having to sit down. The day I had the procedure, I walked 25 feet and was fine. I’m Bill Whitt again.” William Whitt, 85, who suffered from AS and heart failure symptoms, had TAVR at The Christ Hospital on May 5, 2011.

John Metzger is 82. Because of a failing heart due to AS he had trouble breathing. Last September, recognizing his patient couldn’t wait until the new procedure was approved in Cincinnati, Dr. Kereiakes sent John to Cleveland for TAVR.

“Traveling was difficult and inconvenient for my family. Had this procedure been available in Cincinnati, I would have received it right here, at home.” John Metzger, a Cincinnati resident, had TAVR in Cleveland, in September 2010.

Legislators check out Boone courts Volunteers needed for River Sweep

By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

State Sen. John Schickel, R-11th District, and state Rep. Sal Santoro, R-60th District, visited the Boone County Justice Center May 25 to sit in on various courts and assess the wellbeing of the justice system in light of recent budget cuts. “Chief Justice (John D.) Minton asked all the judges if the legislators could go to their home districts and sit in on the courts in progress,” Santoro said. “It is a good insight into the justice system, and in view of funding cuts, it is nice to know the judicial system is working.” Schickel, a Union resident, agreed. “These are difficult times, and with budget cuts, we get a sense of shared sacrifice,” he said. “I was especially impressed with the service attitude of the people I have met who are associated with our court system. I also had a chance to check our the security system in the jail.” State Rep. Addia Wuchner, R-66th District, could not make it to the sessions, but

The Boone River Sweep will take place 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 18. Volunteers may sign up to work at these locations to make the river communities cleaner: • Rabbit Hash General Store at Lower River Road • Petersburg Boat Dock • Boone’s Landing (Union) • Giles-Conrad Park (Hebron) PATRICIA A.

John Schickel and Boone County Circuit Court Clerk Dianne Murray. Seated: Kentucky Court of Appeals Judge Joy Moore, Circuit Court Judge Anthony Frohlich, District Judge Charles Moore and District Judge Jeffrey Smith. Schickel and Santoro made the rounds of district and circuit courts and then were invited to a potluck lunch. District Court Judge Jeffrey Smith was pleased to have the visitors in his court as he presided over a video arraignment of 10 prisoners. “It was nice to interact with the legislators,” he said. “It was a pleasure to have them visit.” Kentucky Court of

Appeals Judge Joy Moore also enjoyed having the legislators at the Justice Center. “I think it is wonderful,” she said. “We need to have this relationship, because it helps each of us understand what the other does.” Dianne Murray, Boone County Circuit Court clerk, was very happy to show the visitors around. “My employees hear so much about these people,” she said. “It is wonderful

that they can meet their representatives in Congress, and put faces with the names.” Circuit Court Judge Anthony Frohlich set up the “Day in the Court” session for the legislators, and he was pleased with how the day went. “On behalf of all of us, I think it went very well,” he said. “We are very pleased to have the legislators come and see what we do here.”

FLORENCE - About 700 people came to the Boone County Veterans Memorial on Memorial Day for the unveiling of a monument for prisoners of war and missing in action. For organizer H.B. Deatherage, the unveiling was very meaningful. “The most powerful moment for me at the dedication was seeing and experiencing the tears running down the faces of 19-yearolds and 91-year-olds alike,” Deatherage said two days after the ceremony. Deatherage was involved in planning all the details and raising funds for installation of the black granite POW monument, which completes the Boone County Veterans Memorial in front of the Florence Government Center. But there was one big surprise for Deatherage that came to light on Memorial Day. U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., himself a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, sent a letter praising Deatherage’s “steadfast and tireless work on behalf of

the Veterans Memorial of Boone County, including your most recent project of securing funding for a POW/MIA monument to the park.” The letter was obtained by Lorene Friedman of the Northern Kentucky chapter of the Blue Star Mothers, a group for mothers who have children serving or who have served in the military. Deatherage worked for months trying to get McCain to attend the Memorial Day ceremony. While some security checks were done in case it happened, Deatherage was disappointed the former presidential candidate wasn’t able to come. As a surprise for Deatherage, Friedman put together an album with the McCain letter and others from county, city and state officials. While the veterans memorial is now complete, Deatherage’s efforts to help veterans will go on. “They deserve better,” he said. “As a Vietnam veteran when I returned home from a war that was so hard and terrible and so very incomprehensible, it was difficult and remains difficult today.”

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., himself a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, sent a letter praising H.B. Deatherage’s “steadfast and tireless work.” Deatherage visits soldiers in hospitals and homes, prays with family members and reassures them that there may be help for their situation. He works closely with

Emily Stilkey, the local VA representative; Boone County native Ken Lucas, state Commissioner of Veterans Affairs; Al Duncan of the Veterans Cemetery in Williamstown; and Friedman and the Blue Star Mothers. Deatherage said “as a little person trying to help the most important people in the world, soldiers,” receiving the letter from McCain was “priceless.” “I am ever so humbled, honored, proud and very proud to be an American.”

WV Schools approves teacher raises

By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

The Board of Education approved a 1 percent raise for certified and classified staff to all steps of the district’s pay scale at the May 31 meeting. “In a time when others are not giving anything or cutting staff, to find anything shows that we regard our employees as family,”

said board member Bill Freeman. With the annual step increases and the 1 percent raise, employees will get about 2.4 percent more Ryan on average next year, said Director of Finance Kevin Ryan.

The district only gave the step increases last year, and has worked hard to find places to cut expenses, said Superintendent Bill Boyle. “We’ve been hiding every nut we can hide – just like the squirrels do in the winter,” Boyle said. It would’ve been nice to give a bigger increase, but the district has to do things responsibly, he said.

“You can give a bigger raise, but does it cost you staff?” Ryan said. “That’s something you’d like to avoid.” Since the start of the recession, Walton-Verona Schools set a goal of not having to cut staff due to economic struggles, Ryan said. While hard times aren’t over, things are looking up, and it was time to add some raises, he said. In addition to the certified and

classified increases, extracurricular positions like coaches got increases on a position-by-position basis. The increases will likely cost the district an additional $90,000 next year on top of the $110,000 that step increases regularly cost, Ryan said.

Boone Schools fight summer learning loss By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Kelly Elem. visits the State Capitol

A group from Kelly Elementary School in Burlington toured the State Capitol in Frankfort on May 20. Students received souvenir packets on behalf of State Reps. Adam Koenig, Sal Santoro and Addia Wuchner.

Summer has just begun, but Boone County Schools is hoping 15 minutes a day can keep the past school year fresh in students’ minds. The district has its summer bridge program ready to help fight summer learning loss. “All of our schools have a plan in place to prevent summer learning loss,” said Laurie Walton, community education director. Summer learning loss is the information students learn during the school year but tend to forget over the summer. “When they come back in August, they’re not usually at that level unless they’ve done some work during the summer,” Walton said. Teachers often have to spend the first part of the year reviewing to catch up from summer learning loss, and the cumulative effect can lead to lagging students, she said. “Within three years, they could

be half a grade behind,” Walton said. Boone County Schools focuses on creating the best learning opportunities for students while school is in session, she said. “We want to do that when it is out of session as well,” Walton said. For students entering first through sixth grades, the district has summer bridge books available. They offer 15-20 minutes of refresher information that students and parents can do together that will keep last year’s learning from disappearing. “That 15-20 minutes a day can really make a big difference,” Walton said. The books cost $10 after a partnership between the district and Carson-Dellosa Publishing. “It’s a really small investment, but it really yields bang for the buck,” Walton said. Summer bridge books are available from Walton at the board office at 8330 U.S. 42 in Florence during business hours.

Applications due soon for music fellowship The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the National Symphony Orchestra and the Kentucky Arts Council encourage Kentucky music teachers working with orchestral music in K-12 public and private schools to apply for the Music Teacher Fellowship that will take place in Washington, D.C., during the summer of 2011.

The four-week summer program involves working with the National Symphony Orchestra education staff to plan instructional activities focusing on the fellow’s chosen areas of interest. The selected teacher will be awarded a cash stipend and have all expenses paid, including travel to and from Washington, D.C. The total value of the fellowship will

not exceed $5,000. The Teacher Fellowship is a continuation of the National Symphony Orchestra American Residency Project of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The American Residency took place in Kentucky in 2011 with the Kentucky Arts Council as the in-state partner. The Kentucky Arts Council is coordinat-

ing the application process for Kentucky music educators. For more information about the fellowship, the criteria for selection and how to apply, contact Tamara Coffey at tamara.coffey@ky.gov or 888-8332787, ext. 479. Applications must be received in the Kentucky Arts Council offices by June 10.

Voice of NKU hoops writes book How do sports, a law enforcement career and radio broadcasting relate? An answer can be found with a local man, Mike Tussey of Florence. And it all comes together in his book, “You’re On the Air.” During a recent book promotion at a Florence Rotary Club meeting, Tussey called his book a memoir and candid look at nearly 50 adventurous years in local and regional broadcasting. He told how he began and was able to continue two careers, radio and law enforcement at the same time. More recently, Tussey retired from Northern Kentucky University’s Police

Department in 2003 as administrative commander. During the time he served in that capacity, he also did play-byplay radio broadcasts of NKU men’s and women’s basketball games and he will begin his sixth season at the microphone this coming November. Throughout his nearly five decades in the business, he had the opportunity to meet and work closely with legends of major league baseball, college basketball and country music stars, even those of the Grand Ole Opry. The book is filled with memories, stories and photos of these times. To read excerpts from the book, to

see some of the photos, and to get order information, see the website: www.miketussey.com .

Bearcat softball makes 1st trip to state

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

WALTON – Natalie Hargett didn’t let the trophy out of her sight. As the lone senior on the Walton-Verona High School softball team, she was given the trophy after the game and held it in her hand long after the game was over. For good reason, as the trophy was the first of its kind for her and her team, who won the postseason KHSAA Eighth Region championship for the first time June 2. “I don’t want to let it go,” Hargett said. “I’m very happy. It’s my senior year and I cannot ask for a better team to go to state with. I’m very happy to play some more.” The Bearcats defeated Martha Layne Collins 4-3 June 2 in the regional final at Simon Kenton High School. Walton, 29-10, will play Hopkins County Central in the first round of the state tournament June 9 in Owensboro. The doubleelimination tourney runs through Saturday, June 11. The Bearcats rallied against Collins (23-15), which is a new school in the Shelby County school district but had a roster filled with postseason experience. Most of the Titans’ top players, including their starting pitcher, used to play for Shelby County High School, who won the Eighth Region the previous two years. Hargett had an answer for them in the first inning of the regional final. Collins had runners on second and third with one out in the frame when Hargett, the third baseman, fielded a grounder near the line,

threw to first baseman Julann Ginn for one out, and Ginn fired a strike to catcher Kelsey Mosier to get the runner trying to score. “That was really huge,” said WV head coach John Anderson. “She froze the runner, and looked her back. Then she has a good arm and Julann has a good arm. We practice that play a lot.” Walton started its offensive game with a single by Amber Watkins and Jessica Gregg being hit by a pitch. Following a groundout, Hargett plated both runners with a single to make it 2-0. “It was right down the middle,” Hargett said. “You couldn’t ask for a better pitch to hit. It wasn’t a hard hit, but it did the job.” In the second inning, freshman Hannah Thacker tripled and then scored on a bunt by Julann Ginn, with Thacker breaking for the plate when the Collins fielder threw to first. The Titans came back in the fourth. Sophomore Bailey Rankin hit a two-run home run to pull them within one.

Later in the inning, the Titans put together a pair of singles to tie the game at 3. In the bottom of the fifth, the first two Bearcats were retired, then Gregg kept the inning alive with a single. Jenalee Ginn stepped up and hit a double to center field to score Gregg. “I was just going up looking for anything, like I always do,” Jenalee Ginn said. “I was struggling this game, but the double helped a lot. It was really nervewracking, but we got the momentum at the end.” Said Anderson: “We were hoping we would get somebody on with Jenalee coming to the plate, and we hoped they wouldn’t walk her. When you get to games like this, it’s going to be a tight game. One mistake here or there could be the ball game.” Following Ginn’s hit, she ran to third base and around several times as Mosier fouled off pitch after pitch. Citing Ginn’s fatigue, and wanting to give Collins hitters a different look, Ginn gave way on the mound to Thacker, who gave up one hit in two innings. Ginn, who had moved to shortstop, threw for the final out after a grounder. Thacker who started about half the games this year, had closed every game in the regional. She is in her first year with the program after transferring from Grant County. “I’m really happy,” Thacker said. “I’m excited and nervous about (state). They have helped me a lot. I was nervous coming in here and I was afraid they would be mad at me, but they have really helped me and pushed me to be better. They’re great.”

UNION – Ryle continues to own the Ninth Region softball tournament. The Raiders won their sixth regional championship in the past seven years with a 3-0 over familiar foe Conner June 2 at NKU. Ryle (30-8) will play Magoffin County in the first round of the state tournament Thursday, June 9, in Owensboro. The tourney is a double-elimination format that runs through Saturday, June 11. “It’s good to be going back to state,” said senior shortstop Jenna Sander, the most valuable player of the tournament. Eighth-grader Haylee Smith pitched a gem for her second regional championship as starting pitcher. Smith threw a four-hit shutout against Conner’s veteran lineup, striking out three but walking just one. She forced 10 ground-ball outs and eight flyouts, and no Raider committed an error behind her. At one point, she retired 10 straight Cougars and only threw 80 pitches for the game. Ryle has only allowed more than two runs twice in its last 15 games heading into the state tourney.

JOSEPH FUQUA II/STAFF

The Ryle High School softball team celebrates with its Ninth Region championship trophy June 2. “She threw a heavy ball and she hit every spot,” Ryle head coach Patti Oliverio. “Haylee is the best in the big games.” Ryle scored twice in the third with the help of two Conner errors. Smith, who was the only Raider with two or more hits in the

game, drove in the second run. Jenna Sander drove in the first. In the fourth, after a Kate Cremer single and another Conner errors, Alli Crupper drove her in with a single. “Our motto is whatever it takes,” Sander said after Ryle’s semifinal win over

Dixie Heights May 31. “In practice, every time you step on the field, you lay it all out there to get the job done. That’s very important to us.” Smith, Bella Steinle and senior Cassie Hamilton also made the all-tourney team for Ryle. Hamilton, the catcher and leadoff hitter, has been a catalyst for the Raiders. “She makes us go,” Oliverio said. “She’s a very hard out. She doesn’t swing at balls, she makes you come in the zone. She’s up there as many times as you can get her in there.” Ellery Kring, Katelynn Halcomb and Paige Volz were Conner’s picks. Kring was the late hero in Conner’s semifinal win over St. Henry, 3-2 in eight innings. She had the goahead base hit in the eighth. “We were in a tight squeeze,” Kring said. “After so many years of playing you know you need to be that person. You have to step up.” “We have all the faith in the world in her in those moments,” Conner head coach Kristin Koors said. “She’ll do whatever it takes to get on base or dive and get the ball. She’s a gamer.” Conner seniors are Sarah Begley, Ashton VanGorden

and K.C. Straley. They’ll miss wearing the Cougar uniform. “This is the last thing keeping me a Conner Cougar right now,” Straley said after the semifinal win. “I love everyone here. They’ve always had my back. If I don’t do something, they’ll pick me up.” St. Henry (16-8) lost in extra innings to Conner in the regional for the second straight year. St. Henry fell 3-2 in eight innings in the semifinal after falling 4-3 in 11 frames last season. Jordan Kreimer had three hits for St. Henry. Sami Ives and Emily Specht drove in runs. St. Henry had four errors, making two of Conner’s three runs unearned. St. Henry shut out Newport 11-0 in the quarterfinals. Ives had three hits and three RBI. Noelle Butts, St. Henry’s No. 2 pitcher, threw both games in the absence of Mamee Salzer, who was out with a hand injury. Butts, who would start for most local teams, had a solid season. The Crusaders have no seniors on their roster. See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/blogs/pres spreps.

Cougars fall short in 9th Region final game By James Weber Brad Arlinghaus couldn’t have been more proud of his Conner High School baseball team. The Cougars were a bad bounce away from potentially winning the Ninth Region baseball championship, which would have been their first since 1979. It was not to be, as Conner fell 3-2 to Newport Central Catholic in the regional final June 3 at Florence Freedom Field. “Our kids busted their butts,” he said. “That’s a heckuva season. First 20win season in seven or eight years. No one gave them a chance all year along and they just battled all year long. Today we came up short, but they have nothing to hang their heads about. It hurts right now.” Conner led 2-0 in the third inning and 2-1 with two outs and nobody on in the bottom of the sixth inning. But NCC rallied with three straight hits to take the lead. The third was a single that appeared to hit off the foot of Conner reliever Nathan Freese. It ricocheted into left field for the go-ahead run. Freese came to the mound in the fifth to relieve Zach Nelson, a junior lefthander who allowed two hits and one run in four innings. “It’s kind of been our Achilles heel, getting that third out,” Arlinghaus said. “Nelson was running out of gas. He got out of a jam in the fourth and that was huge. Nathan’s been great all year. If he gets the last out we can go to (senior closer) Austin (Way) in the seventh.” Conner scored in the second inning after a leadoff hit by Parker Ryle and a wild pitch, then went up 2-0 in the third on a base hit by Jake Williams that scored Jonathan Roberts, who had led off with a single. Williams’ hit turned into an atypical double play when NCC centerfielder Vance Sullivan threw out

Conner senior Jonathan Roberts swings at a pitch June 3. NCC won 3-2 in the Ninth Region baseball final at the Florence Freedom home stadium. Jordan Liechty at the plate, and catcher Matt Broering then threw out Williams at second. Ryle and Williams led Conner with two hits each. Jonathan Roberts, Drew Hart and Blake Maines were all-tourney picks. Seniors are Ryle, Roberts, Liechty, Hart, Way, Jared Simpson and Joe Albrecht. “This group of seniors, we’re going to miss them,” Arlinghaus said. “They’re the heart and soul of this team. They set the foundation a little bit higher for the future.” Boone County (20-12) also fell victim to NewCath, losing 4-3 in the semifinals. Doug Teegarden and Jackson Laumann were Boone’s all-tourney picks. They both had two hits in the semifinals for Boone, who trailed 4-0 before making a comeback. Covington Catholic nearly rallied in its Ninth Region baseball tournament semifinal, but fell short against Conner June 1. The Colonels lost 4-2 to the Cougars, ending their season at 28-11. Cov Cath was shut out until the seventh inning by Conner starter Blake Maines, but rallied for two runs on a double by Tommy Arnzen, a run-scoring single by Ben Maile and hits by Brady Reese and Michael Best. With one out, Blake Bir brought in the second run with a bases-loaded walk, but the next two Colonels were retired to end

the game. All-tourney picks were Jack Grosser and Tommy Arnzen. Cov Cath beat Newport 3-0 in the quarterfinals. Grosser pinch-hit a single to get in the first run. Arnzen got the win in relief against Newport. “I’ve been pinch hitting the last two years so I’m ready to go all the time,” Grosser said. “I’ve been in that situation a lot of times.

Two weeks ago six youth and four adults from Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion worked together in the Boone County Trash for Cash program. Our team was able to pick up trash for three miles in the Union area, and the project took three and half hours to complete. Many individuals in our group were amazed at the amount of trash along the sides of the roads. We primarily picked up bottles, cans and various plastic wrappers. We also found numerous car parts, and numerous ripped-up cardboard boxes. We were able to fill up nine extra-large trash bags full of junk. The event was a great opportunity for our team to help clean up the streets, and it was a great opportunity to raise some funds for our youth mission trips. The total experience reinforced the importance of everyone in the area to do their part to keep Boone County clean. Rick Watson Union

Mailing glosses over Medicare truth

Rep. Geoff Davis has just sent out another “glossy” in which he includes the following statement: “The budget passed by the House will ensure that Medicare will be around for future generations.” This is an absolute lie! The budget passed by the House would eliminate Medicare for our children and for future generations and force anyone needing coverage to purchase medical insurance from HMO’s who are just waiting to gouge Americans with unbelievably high premiums. If Mr. Davis wants to control Medicare costs, he could start by introducing a bill to eliminate that portion of the Prescription Drug Act of 2002 (passed by a Republican Congress) which states that Medicare cannot bargain with drug companies over drug prices. It has been estimated by the Congressional Budget Office that allowing Medicare to bargain for better drug prices will save Medicare hundreds of billions of dollars annually thereby helping to ensure the viability of Medicare. There are also other cost-saving changes which can be made that will make Medicare (single payer) clearly affordable for every American. Come on, Mr. Davis! Stop the

Try using a trash can

On May 28 Cadette Girl Scouts from Troop 42 and their parents picked up trash along several roads around businesses in the Production Drive and Distribution Drive areas off of Limaburg Road. While these areas looked pretty clean before we started, we still filled five trash bags with garbage. We spent two hours picking up miscellaneous items including car parts, bolts, plastic bags and golf balls. Suprisingly, we picked up very few fast food cups or wrappers, as we have done when doing Trash for Cash in the past. We picked up more cigarette butts than anything else, which is totally disgusting. We found pop cans tossed into bushes which is really sad as the recycling center is in the area. Unfortunately they were closed or we would have recycled them that day instead of taking them home to do so. Although Trash for Cash is an excellent fundraiser for groups, it is sad that we have to pick up garbage that people so carelessly toss out of their cars. Trash cans can be found at gas stations, grocery stores, fast food restaurants, parks and your own home. Help us keep Boone County beautiful and dispose of your trash responsibly.

A foster child might need you In this day of instant information, there remains an area many people are unaware of: Foster care. Few understand how the foster care system works, the role of foster parents and most importantly, the experience of the children and youth in foster care. May was National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let’s start with some facts and figures we learned: • More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out of home care, with 75 to 80 percent of those in foster care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse. • The average age of a child in care: 10.7 years. • More than 73 percent of the children/youth in care are white; 19.3 percent are black and 43 percent are Hispanic. • Of the children/youth in care, 50.7 percent are male and 49.3 percent are female. • The average length of stay for children in care is 25.5 months. • The goal of 53 percent of the children in care is reunification with their biological family. • There are 4000 licensed foster homes across the state of Kentucky So there are the facts, but those

are just the numbers behind foster care. The figures do not tell the stories of children/youth served through foster care nor do they highJerianne light the hearts Strange and souls of the Community parents who step up to care for our Recorder kids. guest Those who columnist step in to parent children who are not biologically theirs have a deep understanding of family and parenting that you’ll rarely encounter elsewhere. There’s something about caring for a child who is not linked to you through birth that teaches you some deep lessons about love and family. Is foster parenting easy? No. Is it for everyone? No. Will you make a lot of money foster parenting? No. What you will get is a deep satisfaction of knowing you made a difference in a child’s life – whether the child is 5 or 15. Your actions may be the ones that turn his or her life around and puts them on the path to being a stable member of society rather than an angry statistic, a number on the welfare roll or an inmate in the

Many of those kids have been in limbo for a long time and most just want a place where they belong, a family to call their own, a home and heart where they feel secure. All children deserve safe, happy lives. Young people in foster care especially need nurturing adults on their side because their own families are in crisis and are unable to care for them. It says in Exodus 22:22-23: “Do no take advantage of the widow or the fatherless. If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear their cry.” Do you hear the cries today? There are children and youth who need you. No matter whom you are or how time you have to give, you can help create permanent, lifelong connections for these children and youth.

Parents: Be ready for back-to-school The dog days of summer in late July and August are some of the busiest at the health department and at local pediatricians’ offices. Each year, there’s a rush of families to get their child’s backto-school physical or immunizations. Adding to that, this fall, students in Kentucky will be required to have additional vaccinations. If a child is not up-to-date on his immunizations, does not have a completed Kentucky immunization certificate or needs a school physical, he may not be able to enter school. Each year, dozens of kids are forced to stay home because they don’t meet the health requirements. Don’t let your child miss those first few school days! If you know your child will need one of these services, plan ahead: schedule appointments for early in the summer. At the Boone County Health Center in Florence, we’ll have

Dr. Lynne Saddler Community Recorder guest columnist

additional appointments for school physicals all summer long – the center is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. MondayFriday in June and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting July 5. Plus, immunizations will also be offered on a walk-in basis first thing in the morning – in June, that will be from 7:15 to 8 a.m., and from 8 to 9 a.m. starting in July. Evening appointments will be available the first Tuesday of the month. To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call 859-341-4264, ext. 2004. Kentucky’s childhood immunization requirements have changed, and the new guidelines go into place for the 2011-2012 school year. To enter sixth grade, children must have a meningitis,

Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and a second dose of chickenpox vaccine. For young children, the new guidelines require a series of pneumonia vaccines given between 2 months and 15 months of age; as well as a second dose of chickenpox vaccine, given at age 4. Fortunately, many providers routinely give these vaccines already – even though they weren’t required – so your child may be covered. Check with your provider to be sure. Planning ahead is good for everyone’s health: Your child will be protected against diseases with vaccines and screened for good health; you’ll avoid the stress of rushing around with last-minute appointments. Dr. Lynne Saddler is district director of health at the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Our government must cut spending to avoid debt crisis Members of Congress and the president are currently debating how to prevent the federal government from defaulting on its debt before August. A default would have a devastating impact on our economy; the markets and retirement accounts; and on every function of our government from Medicare to national defense. In a short-sighted bid to prevent this crisis, the Obama Administration has asked Congress to raise the debt ceiling to $16.7 trillion. However, raising the ceiling without spending cuts and reform measures would only address a symptom of out-of-control deficit spending, not address the problem itself.

This is why Republicans are insisting that the debt ceiling not be raised without significant spending cuts as well as budgetary and spendU.S. Rep. ing reforms. Last Geoff Davis week, members Community of both parties in the House of Recorder Representatives guest overwhelmingly columnist rejected the President’s request for a standalone increase in the government’s spending limit by a vote of 318-97.

The debt limit has been raised nine times since 2000. Both parties have been responsible for a lack of budgetary discipline for too long, but that is no excuse for a continued failure to address the situation. Since 2006 alone, the debt limit has increased by almost 60 percent. A family or business that is deep in debt must develop a workout plan, making hard choices, and then follow through on that plan. The federal government needs to follow a similar path by coming to terms with the fiscal crisis we are facing and making the tough but necessary choices to get our country back on the right path. House Republicans have

offered a budget proposal that does just that. Not only would increasing the debt limit without spending cuts be fiscally irresponsible, it would also threaten American jobs and harm private sector job growth at a time when our economy is still struggling to recover. More than 150 economists sent a joint statement to President Obama last week calling for the total amount of spending cuts and reforms to be greater than the accompanying increase in the debt limit. They argued that this would help to both pay our bills and start addressing the spending policies that slow our economic growth and continue to dig a deeper hole

of debt. As negotiations to increase the debt ceiling progress, we will continue to push the Administration for significant spending cuts and reforms. We will demand that any debt limit bill start to meaningfully address the debt crisis now, and not punt these decisions to our children and grandchildren. For the sake of our economy, we must cut job-crushing spending and ensure that we do not default on our debt. U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Hebron, is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The echoes of marriage: To have, hold and turn over relational giving. Others are ill-prepared and o f t e n d o n ’ t know it. Let’s Father Lou consider Guntzelman three critiPerspectives cal things that have to occur. We can hear them echoed in marriage vows. To Have: The truth about intimate relationships is that they can never be any better than our relationship with ourselves. I must have an awareness of myself, who I really am, especially the shadow side of myself, less I inflict it on another. I must know and have myself in hand in order to relate authentically with anyone else. If I have grown up in an atmosphere where I didn’t experience adequate love; where I never learned to

respect myself and be sensitive to others; if I remained too dependent on parents and avoided responsibility for my own actions, then I don’t have what I need to have – a healthy sense of self to offer another. The odds are against me developing a long-lasting relationship with anyone else unless I first have a better relationship with myself. To Hold: A good marriage requires that I am able to hold on to my own sense of self and also permit my spouse to do the very same thing. The romantic poet Rilke put it this way, “I hold this to be the highest task of bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the other’s solitude.� I am to grow, my partner is to grow, but my task is not to mold my spouse into my ego’s liking. The formative nature of marriage welcomes other-

ness, not sameness. If I permit only sameness, only constant agreement, then my ego is unchallenged – it is as if I want to marry only myself. Marriage especially requires that I am able to hold on to my commitment to my vow. To marry without firm commitment is to try and form a permanent relationship to a “maybe.� I proclaim that I love you and will stay with you forever – but I keep considering the escape hatch. When times get tough and love seems absent – as it sometimes will – my commitment to my solemn promise remains as an inducement to stay and continue working. In a “Man For All Seasons,� the playwright quotes these words of St. Thomas More: “When a man gives his word, when he takes an oath or makes a solemn promise, he hold

Regulators can help if you pump bad gas With gas prices so high these days it’s more important than ever to get good quality gas when you fill up. But what can you do if the gasoline you buy is contaminated? An Eastgate woman said although she and her husband complained to the gas station, they didn’t get very far. Christina Von Bargen said in February her husband filled up at a local gas station when he noticed a problem with the pump. “You know when the gas tank is about to run out of gas, and it’s like barely pumping the gas, and it takes forever, well it felt like that. So, he ended up switching grades of gas,� Von Bargen said. But, she said, when her husband started to pull away from the pump, “The car went about 10 feet and then it stopped. He had to push it over into a parking spot.� The Von Bargens had been having problems with their car so thought it was just acting up again. They got the vehicle towed to their home and tried to repair it. Eventually, they gave up and had it towed to the car dealer. “They said it was bad gas.

They said the entire tank was p r e t t y much all water and a tiny bit of it was gas,� Von Howard Ain B a r g e n Hey Howard! said. T h e water in the gas was very damaging to the car. The repairs cost them more than $650. They took the repair bills to the station which had sold that gas but was told it would not reimburse them. The people at the gas station said they wouldn’t pay the Von Bargens because they had waited nearly three weeks before notifying the station of the problem. Employees argued the Von Bargens could have gotten the gas elsewhere during all that time. Von Bargen said she has the credit card statement showing they bought gas there, a letter from AAA saying it towed the car from that station, and they have a repair bill stating the car problem was from bad gas.

“It seems horrible that you can’t go back and say, ‘Hey, this is what damage you did to my car.’ Yet, they’re like, ‘Sorry about your luck.’‌ As a consumer I have no idea who you’re supposed to contact when that type of thing happens. I don’t know if it’s the EPA or what,â€? said Von Bargen. In Kentucky, contact the Division of Regulation and Inspection at 502-573-0282. It is responsible for making sure you get the correct amount of gasoline when you fill up. In this case, very little gasoline was dispensed – along with a lot of water. After Von Bargen contacted her Ohio county’s auditor’s office she learned gas station management was well aware of the problem because another customer had complained to the county about the same thing. Clermont County officials showed the gas station manager the evidence that had been gathered by Von Bargen and the gasoline distributor then reimbursed her for the car’s repairs. Bottom line, if you have any problems with gas pumps, be sure to contact the state’s Division of Regulation

and Inspection. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRCTV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave.

himself like water cupped in the palms of his own hands. If he should be unfaithful then, if he should open his hands, his integrity pours out. He can never hope to recapture himself again.� To Hand Over: The highest human accomplishment is to love another. Not merely to taste pleasurable aspects of love that involve being loved, good feelings and ecstasy. Rather, the noblest love is that which is sacrificial in nature, a free and complete giving of self. Jesus Christ spoke of this kind of love when he said, “No one has greater love

than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.� (John 15:13) Whether this is done slowly over years by devoted parents; in dangerous instances by police, fire personnel, military; suddenly in the rescue effort for an entrapped neighbor, etc. to freely hand over ourselves is life’s highest calling and the most precious gift we can give.

“By all means marry. If you get a good wife you’ll become happy. If you get a bad one you’ll become a philosopher,� conjectured Socrates. Sadly, the relationship failures indicated by our country’s marital statistics show there are lot of philosophers around. It’s not so much that marriages fail because one has a bad wife or a bad husband, it’s more because one has an ignorant wife or husband, not realizing the work required to make marriage work. “Seldom or never does a marriage develop into an individual relationship smoothly and without crises. There is no birth of consciousness without pain,� stated Carl Jung. The remote preparation for marriage begins in childhood, long before spouses ever meet.

Strawberries: U-pick them, you ‘pie’ them The first couple of weeks in June are always a busy time for us. The peas are ready to be picked, and the strawberries

at A&M Farms, like many U-pick places, are abundant and ready to harvest. We’ll Rita be eating Heikenfeld lots of both in Rita’s kitchen their fresh s t a t e , along with making strawberry jam and a couple of fresh berry pies.

Pam Anderson’s strawberry pie

I have several recipes for fresh strawberry pie and like them. But Pam Anderson’s tops them all. I know Pam as a fine cook with recipes that really work. She’s fun to talk to, and always willing to share tips. This pie filling is much better, and better for you, than the commercial stuff you buy in a bag.

Check out her blog “ThreeManyCooks” that she writes with daughters Sharon and Maggy.

3 quarts fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon powdered pectin, like Sure-Jell Pinch salt 3 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in 1⁄4 cup water 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest 1 ⁄2 teaspoon vanilla 1 pre-baked pie shell Slice 1 heaping quart of berries for filling and halve 2 heaping cups of best-looking ones for top. Halve another 2 cups of berries, place in food processor and purée until smooth. Measure out 11⁄4 cups puree and transfer to medium saucepan along with sugar, pectin and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking frequently. Continue to simmer so mixture foams, about a minute longer. Remove from heat; skim foam and return

to pan to medium heat, slowly whisking in cornstarch mixture. Continue to whisk until mixture is stiff. Stir in zest and vanilla. Transfer 1⁄4 cup of mixture to small bowl. Whisk in up to 2 tablespoons of water for the glaze. Transfer remaining mixture to a medium bowl, placing a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface. When mixture has cooled to room temperature, stir in sliced berries and turn into shell. Arrange halved strawberries over top; brush with glaze and refrigerate until ready to serve. Can be made several hours ahead. Serves six.

Rita’s sun-cooked strawberry jam

Check out my blog at Cincinnati.com (Cooking with Rita) for this fun recipe to make with the kids. As for my recipe for regular and freezer strawberry jams, I just follow the recipes packed in the dry pectin box.

Plate of bread with Rita’s herb butter also displays tarragon on the left, parsley on the right, and sits atop oregano.

Clone of J. Alexander’s herb butter from Rita

This is for Phyllis Patrick and a couple of other readers. Phylis couldn’t seem to get any information from this restaurant about their herb butter. When I talked to Greg Reinert at the Norwood location, he was super nice and got this information from his chef. Greg said: “We use real butter, fresh garlic, fresh tarragon, fresh parsley and lemon juice. Real simple.” No, he couldn’t give me proportions but here’s what I came up with after eating a yummy prime rib sandwich there with a generous portion of the herb butter and giving the butter a couple tries at home. Freezes well.

1 stick butter, softened 3 ⁄4 teaspoon finely minced garlic Tarragon and parsley: start with 1 teaspoon each, finely minced Squeeze of lemon juice, not too much Salt to taste Let the butter sit for 30 minutes or so and then taste. You should taste a bit of licorice-flavored tarragon and garlic. The parsley flavor and lemon juice is not predominant and the bit of salt rounds out the flavor. Add more of any one thing if you want.

The Walton Verona Community Pantry teamed up with the Freestore Foodbank to distribute food on Saturday, June 4, in the Walton Christian Church parking lot. They served 80 families, 38 senior citizens, 132 adults ages 18-59 and 95 children for a total of 355 people served from the Walton Verona area. There were 34 volunteers from Walton Christian Church, Walton United Methodist, Verona New Bethel Baptist and Walton Senior Center. That means 389 persons received special blessings this week. Walton-Verona High School Class of 1951 celebrated its 60th graduating anniversary this past week. They were graciously treated to dinner by classmates Don and Glenna Rice. Those enjoying a generous and delightful meal were Don and Bonnie Thomas, Dorothy and Paul Beighle, Dennis and Jean Glacken, Cleo and Brian Sublett, Wanda and Jim Iseral, Joann Richards, Rodney and Bonnie Renaker, Betty Northcutt, Charles and Linda Courtney, Ray Losey and Ruth Crowe Davidson.

Ruth Meadows Walton News

R u t h resides in California and is the only member living out of state. Buddy and Linda Grubbs were unable to attend and was certainly missed. Don had composed a quiz for everyone to think back to 1951 concerning everyday life then. The group divided into two’s and Dorothy Beighle and Don Thomas were the winners. The class had celebrated its 50th anniversary at the Family’s Main Street Restaurant, and decided it would be the choice this year. The class recognized Sheila Dees and her staff for all their hospitality and good food for the past 10 years, as most of the luncheons had been served there. Congratulations were extended to Sheila for their 10th anniversary of Family’s Main Street Restaurant. After a beautiful blue and white decorated cake was served and pictures taken, the class decided to continue celebrating by attending the Walton Verona Alumni Banquet on Saturday. The Walton Verona High

School Alumni met on Saturday, June 4. The program was conducted by Kelly Fulmer. Alumni and friends began gathering at 5 p.m. William Wethington gave the invocation and the banquet was served at 6:15 p.m. One hundred and fifty people attended. Ken Lucas, commissioner of Kentucky Veterans Affairs, presented a high school diploma to Art Green, a most deserving tribute to one of our veterans. Kim Chevelier, one of our new teachers this past year, gave a report on the state of our schools. Our schools are meeting goals in being in compliance with required regulations, plus continued improvements to reach our children’s needs. The honored classes were recognized. Mable Johnson Roberts represented the class of 1941. Dorothy Hoffman Beighle gave some information on the class of 1951. Lynelle Flynn Ryan represented the class of 1961. Linda Worthington Crutcher was inducted into the WVHS Hall of Fame. The Scholarship Awards were awarded to Radleigh Wakefield, Zach Gleason

and Evan Brock. Happy birthday to Debbie Mulford on June 10. Debbie is our Doll House Beauty Operator. Thanks, Debbie in helping to keep looking good by your talent. Flora Ryan is a patient at Grant Manor in Williamstown. I am deeply saddened by the passing of my co-writer, Ann Leake. Ann had been a friend for several years. We had worked together at City Hall, attended church together and belonged to the WaNa Club. I will miss her, but have the memories of her being so strong these past three years. I admired her work with the Veterans Memorial and her devotion to the city and especially her family Thanks, Ann, I will miss you. Ruth Meadows (391-7282) writes a column about Walton.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN ON MODERN DAY GOLD RUSH! By Jason Delong

STAFF WRITER Yesterday at the Holiday Inn, hundreds lined up to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold and jewelry at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The free event is in Erlanger all week, buying gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One visitor I spoke with yesterday said, “It’s unbelievable, I brought in some old coins that had been in a little cigar box for years and some old herringbone necklaces—in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelry box and dresser for at least 20 years.” Another gentleman brought in an old Fender guitar his father had bought

The man said, “Dad had less than fifty bucks in that guitar.” The Roadshow specialist that assisted him made a few phone calls and a veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for $5,700.00. The seller continued, “I got another $150.00 for a broken necklace and an old class ring. It’s not every day that someone comes to town bringing six thousand dollars with your name on it.” Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunters Roadshow, commented, “Lots of people have items that they know are valuable but just don’t know where to sell them. Old toys, trains, swords, guitars, pocket watches or jewelry is valuable to collectors. These collectors are willing to pay big money for those items that they are looking for.” This week’s Roadshow is the best place to get connected with those collectors. The process is free and anyone can bring items down to the event. If the Roadshow specialists find items that their collectors are interested in, offers will be made to purchase them. About 80% of the guests that attend the show end up selling one or more items at the event. Antiques and collectibles are not the only items the Roadshow is buying. “Gold and sil-
