Kroger’s $18M investment has digital focus Melissa Reinert Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
FLORENCE – Grocery shopping is being transformed by the digital age and Kroger is attempting to stay on the forefront of this new wave in Northern Kentucky. Just nine months after opening, a Kroger distribution center in Florence will add 250 full-time associates. The company will invest about $18 million at the facility to support its e-commerce and digital services. Florence Mayor Diane Whalen said the move makes “perfect sense.” “This move is a reﬂection of the times,” she said. “Kroger recognizes what the competition is doing and they want to stay on the forefront. They realize how important it is to get their message out on their digital services and that it’s important to get good people to work for them. Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati is Kroger’s home. They want top-quality services for their customers here.” Whalen said she doesn’t use Kroger’s digital shopping options herself, but she’s assisted several friends who “really enjoy the services.” The number of stores oﬀering ClickList, Kroger’s online grocery ordering service, has risen in Northern Kentucky. Customers shop online for products then pick them up at the store, with employees loading bags into their cars. “I still like going into the store and picking out my own items,” the mayor said with a laugh. “But, (digital grocery

shopping) is something I’m sure I’ll be trying in the future.” Kroger will purchase new equipment and upgrade technology at its 674,000square-foot facility on Mount Zion Road in Florence, according to a press release from the governor’s oﬃce. The facility opened in October 2017 as a replenishment center to service the company’s direct-to-store distribution centers across the eastern half of the U.S. The facility currently employs about 80 associates. “The facility has been a great success for the company since it opened, and we are excited to expand and continue our growth with the support of Boone County and the state,” said Frank Bruni,
Kroger’s vice president of supply chain and logistics. The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority in June preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $1 million. Kroger maintains 114 stores and seven jewelry stores in Kentucky, employing 21,225 people. Kentucky is also home to four manufacturing and distribution facilities, as well as a regional headquarters in Louisville. Sen. John Schickel, of Union, said Northern Kentucky is on an economic development roll and Kroger’s investment builds on that success. “We are grateful to Kroger for this huge investment of nearly $18 million into our local economy in Boone Coun-

Florence buys land to attract new library Chris Mayhew Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
FLORENCE – The city of Florence bought ﬁve acres of land in hopes the Boone County Public Library will come and build a new branch. A grander public library is Florence Mayor Diane Whalen’s idea for former Florence Nursery and Landscaping property the city bought for $610,000 in 2017. The city’s senior center and the former nursery property, located at 7501 U.S. 42, are next to the existing Florence Branch library at 7425 U.S. 42.

However, there are no plans yet to build a new Florence branch of the Boone County Public Library, said Becky Kempf, a library spokeswoman. “Our hope is that the Boone County library board will purchase it from us to construct a new Florence branch library on it,” Whalen said.

The library could have a 10-acre site for a new branch by combining the existing library property, Whalen said. “It’s not necessarily in their immediate plans, but we hope to continue to have those discussions,” she said.

Federal judge rejects KY Medicaid work rules Chris Mayhew Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
A federal judge rejected Kentucky's new rules requiring Medicaid recipients to work – the ﬁrst attempt in the nation to impose such requirements. Gov. Matt Bevin championed Kentucky's Medicaid 1115 waiver program, named Kentucky HEALTH. Campbell County in Northern Kentucky was set to be the ﬁrst county in America to require adults to work for Medicaid beneﬁts starting last Sunday. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg of Washington, D.C., vacated Kentucky's Medicaid waiver in a 60-page ruling last Friday afternoon. The judge sent Kentucky HEALTH back to the commonwealth's Department of Health and Human Services for further review. Kentucky's program targeted adults covered by Medicaid expansion oﬀered under the Aﬀordable Care Act in 2010, said Boasberg. Before Medicaid expansion in Kentucky, only the disabled, blind and needy families with dependent children were covered by Medicaid. "Defendants in this case have sought to roll back those reforms," Boasberg said in his ruling. In a statement from Adam Meier, secretary of Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, the ruling could result in "signiﬁcant beneﬁt re-
ductions." "The Court’s ruling invalidates Kentucky HEALTH on a very narrow basis. The Court concluded that the HHS Secretary simply failed to consider the impact of Kentucky HEALTH on Medicaid coverage. While we disagree with the Court’s ruling, which delays implementation of Kentucky HEALTH, we look forward to working with CMS to quickly resolve the single issue raised by the Court so that we can move forward with Kentucky HEALTH. Without prompt implementation of Kentucky HEALTH, we will have no choice but to make signiﬁcant beneﬁt reductions," Meier said in a press statement issued late Friday afternoon. "Kentucky HEALTH is an innovative, thoughtfully crafted program that will strengthen Medicaid by engaging beneﬁciaries in their own health outcomes. Able-bodied Kentuckians deserve to have a stake in their health and will beneﬁt from the dignity that comes from career training, education, and volunteer opportunities that are available as part of Kentucky HEALTH’s community engagement program. We will ﬁght to preserve these opportunities for our citizens so that we can proceed with the only viable path forward for expanded Medicaid in Kentucky," concluded Meier, a Fort Thomas resident. Kentucky's program would have required able-bodied adults to work 80
hours a month, train for a job or volunteer to maintain Medicaid beneﬁts. Pregnant women and people with chronic health problems would have been exempt. President Donald Trump's administration approved Bevin's Medicaid waiver plan on Jan. 12. Since then, several other states, including Indiana, have been approved for or are seeking similar work requirements, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. On Jan. 24, 16 Kentuckians fearing changes in their Medicaid coverage ﬁled the class-action lawsuit in Washington against Kentucky and the federal government. People suing to stop the Medicaid waiver include Amanda Spears, 33, of Park Hills, and David Roode, 39, of Ludlow.
Library Continued from Page 1A
The Florence branch, built in 1976, is the oldest branch in the county library system. The branch was remodeled in 2001 when additional space was added. “We feel like the residents of Florence probably ought to have some consideration when it comes to upgrading and modernizing our library,” the mayor said. Some improvements are planned to the existing Florence branch in the current ﬁve-year capital project plan that concludes in June 2020, Kempf said. The library will complete a new ﬁveyear plan before June 2020. “Before any plans to build a new library building are made, we do a lot of research,” Kempf said. Research inﬂuencing whether a new

Attorneys for the National Health Law Program, Kentucky Equal Justice Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center handled the case. Medicaid covers about 1.4 million people in Kentucky. About half of them are children. The federal-state program also covers people with low incomes and the elderly. "Kentucky Voices for Health and our partners applaud the court’s decision to support Kentuckians on Medicaid by refusing to create additional barriers," said Emily Beauregard, executive director for Kentucky Voices for Health. The advocacy group Kentucky Voices for Health gathered comments from Kentucky residents, more than 3,000 of them, opposed to the new Medicaid waiver program.
branch will be built includes studying traﬃc patterns, locations for new housing developments, current and projected population densities, and the locations of existing businesses and plans for new businesses, she said. “To do this, the library would have to work with the (Boone County) Planning Commission, Fiscal Court and local cities to determine if a new building is needed and if so, where it should be located to best serve Boone County,” Kempf said. Library card users’ habits of where they check out materials are already known, she said. Florence residents use four libraries including the Florence branch, the Scheben branch in Union, the Walton branch and the main library in Burlington, she said. The Scheben branch sits on the Florence/Union border and the main library in Burlington is one mile from the Florence border, Kempf said. Planning the new Hebron library branch took four years before land was purchased in 2005, Kempf said. The new Hebron branch is under construction on land near the roundabout at Ky. 237 and Cardinal Way. This library is scheduled to be complete in spring 2019. The branch will be 2.6 miles north of the current library at 315 Cougar Path.

Ark Encounter reports 1 million visitors in 2nd year Northern Kentucky’s Noah’s Ark replica attracted one million visitors during its second year of operation, oﬃcials said. Answers in Genesis, which owns the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum, reported a 20 percent jump in attendance year over year for the ark. The structure, literally of Biblical proportions, opened to the public in July 2016 and drew about 800,000 visitors to Williamstown during its ﬁrst year of operation. Answers in Genesis initially projected 1.2 million would attend. By most accounts, the ark draws more visitors than its sister attraction. AIG does not release yearly attendance numbers for the Creation Museum, according to spokeswoman Melany Eth-
ridge, however, organization leaders said in 2016 they were hoping the museum would draw 600,000 that year. New additions are planned for the Ark Encounter grounds including the Answers Center, more zoo space, restaurants and a children’s play area. The center will house a 2,500-seat auditorium and a 36,000-square foot basement with classrooms. To put attendance to the Ark Encounter in perspective, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden reported 1.6 million visitors in its last annual report. Kings Islands had an estimated 2017 attendance of 3.47 million, according to the Themed Entertainment Association. The Newport Aquarium averages 700,000 visitors a year, according to its website.

Fish moved from lake at Big Bone Lick park Nancy Daly Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
UNION – As the Kentucky Department of Parks continues lowering the lake level at Big Bone Lick State Historic Site in order to repair a leaking dam, state wildlife oﬃcials removed about 300 ﬁsh from the lake. A team of ﬁsheries biologists and technicians with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources spent July 3 recovering ﬁsh from the lake in Boone County and relocating them to a lake 50 miles away. According to a Kentucky Parks press
release, the action will help “save ﬁsh facing an uncertain future.” The ﬁsh and wildlife department oﬀered its assistance after the May 22 discovery of a leaking dam at Big Bone Lick park. The dam, which does not appear to be in imminent danger of failing, impounds a 9acre lake. State oﬃcials are drawing down the water level of the lake in order to determine the source of the leak and assess any damage. “We wanted to move quickly to remove and relocate as many ﬁsh as possible while the lake level was suitable for our crews to safely launch their boats into the lake,” said Ron Brooks, director

of ﬁsheries for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife crews used electroﬁshing boats to recover the ﬁsh. The technique involves applying electrical current to the water, temporarily stunning the ﬁsh so they can be netted then released alive. Largemouth bass up to 15 inches, channel catﬁsh up to 18 inches and bluegill were recovered and relocated to 88-acre Benjy Kinman Lake in Henry County, located between Louisville and Cincinnati. As a precaution the park in Boone County has also closed an access road to the lake as well as a nearby picnic shelter. Signs have been posted along Big Bone Creek downstream from the leaking dam alerting anglers of the possible danger. Otherwise Big Bone Lick State Historic Site remains open, Gil Lawson, public information oﬃcer for Kentucky Department of Parks, told The Enquirer on July 4. “They stopped the ﬁshing over the last week but all the other activities and attractions are open,” Lawson said. “The campground is full.” Located at 3380 Beaver Road, the park is known for its indoor and outdoor exhibits of fossils, a bison herd that is viewable daily, hiking trails and camping.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife stocks the lake at Big Bone Lick State Historic Site with channel catﬁsh every other year and Big Bone Creek, downstream of the leaking dam, with rainbow trout three times each year. Biologists will continue to evaluate the situation before determining future stocking eﬀorts in the lake and creek. An inspection on June 22 by Dam Safety personnel from the Kentucky Division of Water noted a large leak discharging on the downstream slope of the 70-foot-high dam. The leak appears to be the result of internal soil erosion within the dam, possibly related to a leaking draw-down pipe. Big Bone Lick State Historic Site has 813 acres with 40 acres of picnic grounds and a 62-site campground with electricity, water, grills, bathhouse, and a pool, according to the Kentucky Parks website. The park’s modern museum and visitor center has paleontological and archaeological exhibits – developed in cooperation with Cincinnati Museum Center – on display and the adjacent grounds also feature life-sized replicas of mammoth, mastodon, ground sloth and bison. Among the latest additions to the visitor center is an 8-foot-high skeletal reconstruction of a 2,000pound Harlan’s Ground Sloth.

Fresh twist on sausage brings meal to one skillet Seared sausage with rhubarb and Swiss chard
Rita’s Kitchen Rita Heikenfeld
From Melissa’s book “Dinner, Changing the Game.” What I love about this book is that each recipe can stand alone as dinner. Less pans and dishes to wash!
While I was tilling the vegetable garden, I glanced at the rhubarb and Swiss chard. Both needed to be picked. The perfect pair to use in a one plate recipe from Melissa Clark, food columnist and author for the New York Times. I interviewed Melissa and met her when she came to Cincinnati in May. What I ﬁnd amazing is that Melissa is not only a food writer/reporter, she has written nearly 40 cookbooks. Plus honors from James Beard Foundation and being a judge on Iron Chef America, to name just a couple of her achievements. Melissa was fun to talk to and we share a passion for food and what it means to sit at a table and eat with family and friends. Growing up in Brooklyn with parents who both cooked diﬀerent foods, Melissa was eager to learn, and learn she did. “Food was big in our family. The center of the house was our kitchen where we all hung out. I picked up basics of food in that Brooklyn kitchen”, she told me. Melissa has come a long way since then, yet her Brooklyn roots remain. She and her family still live there. One of the gifts she has is teaching cooking sans the angst. Watch one of her videos or leaf through her book “Dinner, Changing the Game/ Clarkson Potter” and you’ll be thinking: “I can do that.” Melissa navigates through a recipe easily and that means you will, too. So today I want you to get out of your comfort zone a bit, and try this one plate dinner. No worries if you don’t have a patch of rhubarb growing. It’s available in the frozen food section.
Rita’s Herbal Tip: Bay is a salt buster Adding bay allows you to use less salt and still have fantastic ﬂavor. Check out my articles in Countryside Magazine on this ancient and popular herb.
Melissa said sautéing rhubarb with chard, fresh ginger, currants, and a little maple syrup makes an unexpected and yummy sauce for a pan of seared sausages, which lend a crisp and porky punch. Melissa likes to serve this over polenta (recipe also in her book) but says barley or quinoa would work well, as would mashed potatoes. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound sweet Italian sausages, pricked with a fork 1 red onion, thinly sliced 1 bunch green, red, or rainbow Swiss chard, stems cut into 1/4 inch slices, leaves torn into bite-sized pieces 8 ounces rhubarb stems cut into 1/4 inch-thick slices
One-skillet seared sausage with rhubarb and Swiss chard can be dished out over polenta, barley or quinoa. RITA HEIKENFELD FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS
2 tablespoons dried currants 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon garam masala 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Clariﬁcation Simple Lemon Cheesecake Recipe Seems like there’s some confusion, so I want to clarify: ❚ The cheesecake is baked in a regular 8-9” pie pan. You could use an 8” springform and just pat the graham cracker crust in on the bottom and as high as you can on the sides. You probably won’t have enough to go all the way up in the springform. That’s OK. ❚ This cheesecake does not bake up real high. It’s very creamy and yummy. ❚ After the cheesecake is taken out of the oven at 325 degrees, immediately turn the oven up to 450-500. ❚ Put the topping on and return the cheesecake to the hot oven for 5 minutes. That sets the topping. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog at Abouteating.com. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated 1 bay leaf SERVES 4 1. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausages and cook until cooked through and well browned all over, about 12 minutes. Transfer to plate. 2. Add onion to skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in chard stems and continue to cook until onion is well browned and chard stems are almost tender, about 7 minutes. Add rhubarb, currants, maple syrup, garam masala, salt, ginger, and bay leaf. Cook, stirring often, until rhubarb has fallen apart and chard stems are tender, 7 to 10 minutes. If bottom of pan begins to scorch, stir in some water, a few tablespoons at a time. 3. Toss in chard leaves and cook, stirring frequently, until they are wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer chard mixture to a heated serving platter and pluck out bay leaf. 4. Return sausages to skillet and heat through, shaking pan so they crisp a little on all sides, about 2 minutes. Serve sausages over the rhubarb-chard mixture.

Viewpoints Critically needed: New pension system for incoming teachers Jim Waters Guest Columnist Community Recorder
The frustration expressed by Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer following Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd’s decision to strike down a pension-reform law cobbled together originally as Senate Bill 1 and then watered down and pushed through during this year’s General Assembly session as a substitute for Senate Bill 151 (SB 151) – originally wastewater-treatment legislation – is understandable. “I’m tired of dealing with it,” Thayer, R-Georgetown, told reporters. “It’s become hateful, hostile and toxic from the defenders of the status quo who are unwilling to accept a modicum of change just to put their pensions on the right track.” Thayer’s not exaggerating. The original pension legislation introduced in February proposed a reduction in cost of living adjustments that would have reduced the growth of the average retiree’s monthly check by the equivalent of a couple of cups of coﬀee each week while providing enormous relief to the pension system. However, “defenders of the status quo” weren’t having any of it. Thayer warns that if Shepherd’s decision stands, the commonwealth’s retirement plans will “continue to spiral
downward” and “defenders of the status quo can declare victory and watch while our pension systems collapse.” Of course, if that were to happen, Thayer’s Grand Old Party would be blamed for allowing the implosion, even though the Republican-dominated legislature approved Gov. Matt Bevin’s proposal to spend 15 percent – or $3.3 billion – of the new state budget just on public pensions. Republicans with a supermajority in both legislative chambers also enacted a host of new taxes to fund the increased contributions – something even Democrats didn’t touch during their decades of power. Surrendering now would create a dilemma for Republicans, forcing them to decide what happens to those tax hikes should the pension bill get permanently thwarted by the courts. A new Bluegrass Institute proposal attracting support from key members on both sides of the political aisle would hand those refusing to accept even “a modicum of change” their own dilemma. The proposal requires employers to contribute at the same levels as the cash-balance policy in SB 151 but also provides deﬁned beneﬁts for teachers by requiring plan administrators to adjust employees’ contributions, beneﬁtaccrual rates and retirement eligibility in order to maintain full funding of the systems without increasing those em-

ployer payroll-contribution rates covered by taxpayers. This represents a dramatic departure from the existing ﬂawed deﬁned-beneﬁt paradigm that allows lawmakers to award politically motivated beneﬁt enhancements that are repaid with interest and charged to future generations of taxpayers and public employers as a percentage of payroll – a strategy fraught with the potential to create massive unfunded liabilities and dramatic increases in employer payrollcontribution rates, even when longterm investment returns meet or exceed expectations. The tradeoﬀ: in exchange for eliminating a few egregious policies like using accrued sick days to spike ﬁnal compensation and lifetime pension payments or arbitrarily enhancing ﬁnal compensation formulas based solely on longevity, teachers in this new plan would have a stable, generous and protected beneﬁt that depends on their own payroll contributions, set payments for taxpayers and the plans’ investment performance rather than on Frankfort’s politicians. Those protecting the status quo
might have a stronger position had beneﬁts historically been limited to those awarded in advance and properly pre-funded with payroll contributions made by teachers and their employers. Of course, had such ﬁscal discipline been exercised historically, Kentucky wouldn’t now be facing the nation’s worst pension liability. All parties ought to at least agree that the commonwealth cannot continue to place new teachers in the current declining system. Gov. Bevin should seriously consider calling a special session before the end of the year, limiting its agenda to placing all new teachers into this new plan offering deﬁned beneﬁts for beneﬁciaries and ﬁxed employer payroll-contribution rates and letting the left pay the political price for its harmful obstructionism.

Looking for garage sale deals Sandra Guile Guest Columnist Community Recorder
Summer is ripe with signs for estate sales, garage sales, and weekend ﬂea market explorations. It’s also a great time to ﬁnd a great deal, discover an antique or ﬁnd the perfect decorative item that will look fabulous in your house. You’re not the only one looking for a steal, con artists are too. Lock it up Having a yard sale isn’t necessarily a dangerous activity, however, it doesn’t hurt to take a few basic precautions. Lock all the doors leading to your home including the door from the garage to the interior even you plan to go in and out frequently. Your attention will be needed elsewhere at some point during the sale when tending to visitors. Politely refuse the use of your restroom as this provides an opportunity for future theft. Just prior to the sale, keep everything locked up. Yard sale shoppers tend to check out items before the sale begins to map out what areas to shop ﬁrst if there are speciﬁc items they’re looking for. Be buyer aware There is safety in numbers and often many cons will travel in groups sifting through the displayed items. One will be the designation distractor while anoth-
er will ask about another item or simply engage you in conversation. Treat your garage sale like you would a retailer. Enlist a friend or family member to help you during the time of the sale to keep an eye out for people swapping tags, hiding items or distracting while the rest of the posse riﬂes through items. Bigger ticket items, like jewelry and electronics, should be kept close and don’t hand it over until the correct cash is handed over. Cash only, please Stay sharp when it comes to settling for the purchases. Watch for the high bill switch where the buyer ﬂashes a $20 but tries to pay with a $10 claiming you shortchanged them. Or, look for counterfeit high dollar bills. Check out the Secret Service website for tips on what to look for. Looks suspicious? say something! Keep a fully charged cell phone with you at all time and if something doesn’t seem right or you’re approached by someone who’s not being very cooperative, don’t hesitate to contact your local law enforcement.

Rivalries are special in any sport. High school football is a bountiful place to grow a special rivalry since the teams are only guaranteed to play once a year. In Northern Kentucky football, when only a small percentage of regular-season games impact the playoﬀ seeding, a rivalry can spice up an ordinary week. Here is a look at some of Northern Kentucky's top battles
Bellevue vs. Dayton The river rivals have played more games against each other than any other pair in Kentucky (141), with Bellevue leading 95-43-3. Since 2015, the teams have played two games a year, one in each of their historic stadiums, Bellevue’s Gilligan Stadium and Dayton’s Davis Field. The second one counts in district seeding and for the Battle for the Paddle traveling trophy. Since Dayton won two in a row from 2006-7, Bellevue has won 13 of the past 14, but three of the last four have ﬁn-
ished within a one-score margin, with Dayton winning one. Last 10 years: 2008 – Bellevue 33-2, 2009 – Bellevue 56-7, 2010 – Bellevue 46-0, 2011 – Bellevue 17-6, 2012 – Bellevue 58-8, 2013 – Bellevue 64-6, 2014 – Bellevue 61-0, 2015 – Bellevue 42-0 and Bellevue 31-0, 2016 – Dayton 14-13 and Bellevue 7-0, 2017 – Bellevue 47-27 and Bellevue 42-40 (OT). 2018: Aug. 24 in Dayton, Oct. 12 in Bellevue.
Covington Catholic vs. Highlands There’s a lot of history in this matchup. Thirty combined state championships. College stars aplenty. Their 1997 playoﬀ meeting, the “Mud Bowl” that CovCath won in double-overtime, remains one of the most memorable games in Northern Kentucky lore. Highlands leads the all-time series 48-19, and recent history has been topsy-turvy with the teams having runs of dominance. Highlands won 15 in a row from 2007-15, with many of those being lopsided, then CovCath has turned the tables in 2016-17, winning a pair of routs. Highlands hopes to be an improved

team this season while CovCath reloads from its dominant 2017 state championship year. Last 10 years: 2008 – Highlands 61-0; 2009 – Highlands 36-7; 2010 – Highlands 27-20; 2011 – Highlands 4237, Highlands 49-14; 2012 – Highlands 35-21, Highlands 28-13; 2013 – Highlands 42-6, Highlands 28-13; 2014 – Highlands 42-7, Highlands 37-34; 2015 – Highlands 14-10, Highlands 44-22; 2016 – CovCath 63-26; 2017 – CovCath 52-0. 2018: Oct. 12 at Highlands
Ryle vs. Simon Kenton Deﬁnitely some recent bias in this choice. The Raiders have longstanding rivalries with their Boone County neighbors – Conner, Cooper and Boone County – with the added bonus of the players growing up in the peewee leagues together. But it’s hard to ignore how strong both the Raiders and Pioneers have been in recent years and how competitive they have been with each other. Ryle is 71-48 since 2008 and Simon 100-31. Both teams have played in a state ﬁnal. Both were undefeated in 2016 when they met late in the season, and
SK was undefeated last year when Ryle won 56-38 behind 449 rushing yards from Jake Chisholm. Starting in 2019, they will be district mates again. Last 10 years: 2008 – Ryle 26-18; 2009 – SK 49-29; 2010 – Ryle 38-35 (OT), Ryle 35-14; 2011 – Ryle 21-6; 2012 – SK 20-0; 2013 – SK 46-7; 2014 – SK 2417; 2015 – SK 28-7, SK 41-23; 2016 – Ryle 32-25; 2017 – Ryle 56-38. 2018: Oct. 19 at Ryle.
Beechwood vs. Newport Central Catholic The small-school powers haven’t been district rivals since 2006, when NCC moved up to 2A. They won’t be rivals in the new alignment beginning in 2019, when they switch places, with NCC dropping to 1A and Beechwood moving up to 2A. Since NCC moved up, they have continued to play each other in the ﬁnal week of the regular season to tune up for their playoﬀ runs. The teams have combined for 18 state titles. Beechwood has controlled the rivalry for the last four years. Their 2010 See RIVALRIES, Page 2B

UC Bearcats, NKU to play men’s basketball series The University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team will start a four-game series next season with the Bearcats’ one-year hosts from 2017-18, the Northern Kentucky University Norse. Neither school has issued a press release about the series, but UC athletic director Mike Bohn said that the two schools will be playing a four-game home-and-home series. There will be two games at each school, beginning in the 2018-19 season at UC. The games will be played over the next seven years, Bohn said, with dates to be announced. “We agreed to a four-game series as part of our agreement to play on their campus last season,” Bohn said via text. UC played its 2017-18 home games at NKU’s BB&T Arena, with the Bearcats’ Fifth Third Arena undergoing an $87 million renovation. UC will return to its campus home for the 2018-19 season, with NKU among the opponents. UC paid about $650,000 to play at
NKU last season. The agreement stated that the two schools would play two home-and-home series sometime in the years after Fifth Third is renovated. NKU made 10 NCAA Division II Tournament appearances – including national runner-up ﬁnishes in 1996 and 1997 – before transitioning to Division I six years ago. The Norse gained national attention with a 2017 Division I NCAA Tournament appearance, followed by an NIT bid in 2018. “We recognize the growth of their athletic enterprise as a ﬁt into the way (UC coach) Mick (Cronin) has consistently managed our RPI and nationally recognized program,” Bohn said. UC has made eight consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances under Cronin, who next season will enter his 13th year as Bearcats head coach. UC is 7-0 all-time against NKU in the regular season. The two schools also have met in preseason exhibitions, but the Bearcats media guide shows that the two programs have not played in the regular season since a 75-63 UC win on Nov. 27, 1988 at Cincinnati Gardens.

N. Kentucky Youth Hockey delivers successful season Northern Kentucky Youth Hockey Association ﬁnished up the 2017/2018 season with a series of outstanding accomplishments. Since announcing Frank Banham as Coaching Director and step-changing the development program for coaches and players for the club, NKYHA delivered some of its best results ever. The Norse Varsity High School team ﬁnished the season with an overall record of 40-14-7. That was good for ﬁrst in the Cincinnati High School League and ﬁrst in the Kentucky High School League. They followed their Kentucky State Varsity Championship last year with a runner-up in this year’s Kentucky State Varsity Tournament. Five of the fourteen seniors will continue playing hockey in college. Josh Roesel (Louisville), Ryan Huesman (Kentucky), John Hooper, Nick Rintala (Eastern Kentucky) and Jake Goldberg (Aurora, IL). Success continued with the NKYHA 18U AA Travel team winning the Kentucky State Championship. That earned them a place in the Tier 2 18U National Championship in Green Bay, Wisconsin where the team ﬁnished second in their pool and lost in the knockout round. As announced last spring, much of the focus of growing hockey in Northern Kentucky has been on the youngest age groups. NKYHA saw great success there this season as well. The Norse 8U White Tournament

team swept their group and went on to win the Shamrock Showdown Championship in Cleveland, one of Ohio’s premier 8U tournaments. Several other NKYHA 8U players joined a Cincinnati Prospects team that also won the highest division at that tournament. Following that success, six players have gone on to play spring AAA hockey with TPH’s Central Prospects team. The Tim Horton’s Tim Bits hockey program also saw record breaking participation this spring. “The future of hockey in Northern Kentucky is the instructional program. We were blown away by how many kids signed up. We nearly doubled our usual turnout.” said Frank Banham. “That sort of participation really helps deliver our vision of having the best young development program in the area for young hockey players.” Dave Walker, NKYHA

Leach gearing up for U.S. Women’s Open James Weber Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
HEBRON – Martha Leach doesn’t often compete in golf tournaments close to home. The 56-year-old real estate agent jokes that selling houses makes it tough to negotiate the closing deals of a golf course. “I do not play in anything locally,” she said. “If I played locally, I would be working right before I teed oﬀ. One time I did that and signed an incorrect scorecard.” Leach will be trading in Northern Kentucky houses for the high-rent greens in Chicago next week, when she competes in the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open tournament. The 72hole tournament is July 12-15 at Chicago Golf Club in Wheaton, Ill. The Hebron resident earned her spot by shooting a 71 June 18 at Scioto Country Club in Ohio. “The opportunity to play in every USGA event is exciting,” she said. “To be able to play in the inaugural US Senior Open is a very surreal experience.” Leach is one of 120 players who will begin the event. Among the exempt qualiﬁers are some of the biggest names in the history of the sport, including Juli Inkster, Amy Alcott and Jan Stephenson. And Hollis Stacy, Leach’s older sister. Stacy is a three-time champion of the U.S. Women’s Open and an 18-time titlist overall. Leach introduced her sister at the 2012 World Golf Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Leach herself was inducted into the Kentucky Golf Hall of Fame in 2015 and the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame in 2018. In interviews conducted at the time in 2012, Leach was nervous about giving a speech for her sister. “I was so nervous,” she said on the USGA web site. “These other players had famous presenters, like (television producer) Terry Jastrow for Peter Allis, and I was just Hollis’ sister. After it was over I said to a relative, ‘Did you see all of those other presenters?’ Leach is no stranger to USGA events as she has competed in 29 U.S. Wom-

meeting, a Beechwood win in double overtime, is one of the best games in the area in the past decade. Last 10 years: 2008 – NCC 31-20; 2009 – NCC 26-22; 2010 – Beechwood 40-39 (2OT); 2011 – Beechwood 29-20; 2012 – NCC 34-14; 2013 -NCC 34-31; 2014 – Beechwood 30-13; 2015 – Beechwood 31-14; 2016 – Beechwood 42-14; 2017 – Beechwood 34-6.
en’s Mid-Amateurs, winning the title in 2009, and has competed in 18 other U.S. Women's Amateurs. Competing against her sister will be a new challenge. They hope each other do well. “We laugh about it,” Leach said. “Being paired together would be awful. I would be watching her and she would be watching me. If we play well enough to get into the last two days, it would be fun but we hope we’re not playing together.” Leach travels to four or ﬁve major tournaments a year. Her husband, John, is the director of golf at Traditions Golf Club in Hebron. He has taught PGA Tour pros. Leach is looking to have fun in Chicago and do as well as she can. “My expectations are low since I don’t compete as much but I’m trying to have productive practice before I go next week,” she said. “I’ve played with a lot of these women in college but a lot of them have had success on the tour. I’m excited to be playing and excited to be there. It’s a tough club to get on and to play it for ﬁve days will be a treat.” Leach and Stacy, 64, are two of 10 children who grew up together in Savannah, Ga. Stacy is the fourth-oldest of the clan and Leach, eighth. Leach said growing up in that type of household made them both very competitive. “We’re very competitive in everything,” Leach said. “She had her successes earlier and mine came later. It’s special that we’re both USGA champions and playing in the U.S. Senior Open. Golf has always been a part of my life. We grew up with it. My parents played. Most of my siblings played. It helped me go to college free.” Leach spent her life in the south before moving to Northern Kentucky 22 years ago when John went to Traditions. “It was quite of a shock,” she said. “We moved here from Austin, Texas. Winters are not the same in the south. I was shocked. We knew it would be cold but not how cold it would be. In Georgia, it could be 30 degrees one day but 60 degrees the next ﬁve days.”

A good time to review your tax withholdings Extension Notes Diane Mason Guest columnist
As the paraphrased saying goes, the only things that are certain are death and taxes. It is mid-year and it is a good time to review your tax withholdings to ensure you are on track. Several income tax changes have taken place at the state and federal levels that may have aﬀected not only your pay but your paycheck withholdings. A simple way to review your 2018 fed-
eral income tax withholding is with the IRS Withholding Calculator at <https:// www.irs.gov/individuals/irs-withholding-calculator>. Having recent pay stubs and tax documents handy will help you navigate the calculator eﬃciently. The calculator is only as accurate as the information you provide. IRS Publication 505 discusses the new tax law and how it will aﬀect individual tax returns. The state also passed legislation that aﬀects individual’s income. Kentucky House Bill 487 became law on April 27, 2018. It includes the new 5 percent Kentucky ﬂat income tax rate.

Why Haven’t Senior Homeowners Been Told These Facts?
Keep reading if you own a home in the U.S. and were born before 1955. It’s a well-known fact that for many senior citizens in the U.S. their home is their single biggest asset, often accounting for more than 50% of their total net worth. Yet, according to new statistics from the mortgage industry, senior homeowners in the U.S. are now sitting on more than 6.1 trillion dollars of unused home equity.1 With people now living longer than ever before and home prices back up again, ignoring this “hidden wealth” may prove to be short sighted. All things considered, it’s not surprising that more than a million homeowners have already used a government-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or “HECM” loan to turn their home equity into extra cash for retirement. However, today, there are still millions of eligible homeowners who could benefit from this FHA-insured loan but may simply not be aware of this “retirement secret.” Some homeowners think HECM loans sound “too good to be true.” After all, you get the cash you need out of your home but you have no more monthly mortgage payments.
NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE PAYMENTS?2 EXTRA CASH? It’s a fact: no monthly mortgage payments are required with a government-insured HECM loan;2 however the homeowners are still responsible for paying for the maintenance of their home, property taxes, homeowner’s insurance and, if required, their HOA fees. Another fact many are not aware of is that HECM reverse mortgages first took hold when President Reagan signed the FHA Reverse Mortgage Bill into law 29 years ago in order to help senior citizens remain in their homes. Today, HECM loans are simply an effective way for homeowners 62 and older to get the extra cash they need to enjoy retirement. Although today’s HECM loans have been improved to provide even greater financial protection for homeowners, there are still many misconceptions. For example, a lot of people mistakenly believe the home must be paid off in full in order to qualify for a HECM loan, which is not the case. In fact, one key advantage of a HECM is that the proceeds will first be used to pay off any existing liens on the property, which frees up cash flow, a
FACT: In 1988, President Reagan signed an FHA bill that put HECM loans into law. huge blessing for seniors living on a fixed income. Unfortunately, many senior homeowners who might be better off with HECM loan don’t even bother to get more information because of rumors they’ve heard. That’s a shame because HECM loans are helping many senior homeowners live a better life. In fact, a recent survey by American Advisors Group (AAG), the nation’s number one HECM lender, found that over 90% of their clients are satisfied with their loans. While these special loans are not for everyone, they can be a real lifesaver for senior homeowners. The cash from a HECM loan can be used for any purpose. Many people use the money to save on interest charges by paying off credit cards or other highinterest loans. Other common uses include making home improvements, paying off medical bills or helping other family members. Some people simply need the extra cash for everyday expenses while others are now using it as a “safety net” for financial emergencies. If you’re a homeowner age 62 or older, you owe it to yourself to learn more so that you can make an informed decision. Homeowners who are interested in learning more can request a free 2018 HECM loan Information Kit and free Educational DVD by calling American Advisors Group tollfree at 1-800-841-8091. At no cost or obligation, the professionals at AAG can help you find out if you qualify and also answer common questions such as: 1. What’s the government’s role? 2. How much money might I get? 3. Who owns the home after I take out a HECM loan? You may be pleasantly surprised by what you discover when you call AAG for more information today.
Source: http://reversemortgagedaily.com/2016/06/21/seniors-home-equity-grows-to-6-trillion-reverse-mortgageopportunity. 2If you qualify and your loan is approved, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) must pay off any existing mortgage(s). With a HECM loan, no monthly mortgage payment is required. A HECM increases the principal mortgage loan amount and decreases home equity (it is a negative amortization loan). AAG works with other lenders and financial institutions that offer HECMs. To process your request for a loan, AAG may forward your contact information to such lenders for your consideration of HECM programs that they offer. When the loan is due and payable, some or all of the equity in the property no longer belongs to borrowers, who may need to sell the home or otherwise repay the loan with interest from other proceeds. AAG charges an origination fee, mortgage insurance premium, closing costs and servicing fees (added to the balance of the loan). The balance of the loan grows over time and AAG charges interest on the balance. Interest is not tax-deductible until the loan is partially or fully repaid. Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes and homeowner’s insurance (which may be substantial). We do not establish an escrow account for disbursements of these payments. A set-aside account can be set up to pay taxes and insurance and may be required in some cases. Borrowers must occupy home as their primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance; otherwise the loan becomes due and payable. The loan also becomes due and payable when the last borrower, or eligible non-borrowing surviving spouse, dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, defaults on taxes or insurance payments, or does not otherwise comply with the loan terms.
