Gates Foundation awards district $334,000 By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Boone County Schools is getting financial backing to help kids think critically. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundations awarded $334,100 to Boone County Schools to continue and expand their new focus on math. For the past two years, Boone teachers have gotten training on creating formative assessment lessons that help students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. The program focused mostly on high school Algebra 1, Algebra II and geometry classes. “Now we’re moving it down to seventh and

eighth grades,” said chief academic officer Pat Murray. Formative assessment lessons will be a requirement across the state in a few years, and Boone County is paving the way for how they will look, Murray said. “We’re really being the guinea pigs,” she said. The grant will also allow for the program to move into reading as well. “We’re going to start small,” Murray said.

Grant to further Boone County Schools’ focus on math, expanding to seventh and eighth grades.

Sixth-grade social studies students will focus on analytical reading of complex texts and development of writing skills that prepare students to write substantive persuasive and literary pieces based on reading and research. Primarily, the grants cover the expenses for getting teachers trained in the programs. So they’ll get stipends to attend training and the costs of using substitute teachers while they’re training will be covered. The program requires between six and eight training days a year. The district works to only have teachers out of the classroom one day per quarter during the school year. “They can’t do their jobs if they’re out of the classrooms,” Murray said.

RABBIT HASH - Rabbit Hash is preparing for another summer music event. The second annual Browngrass Festival will be held in the river town from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday, July 16. According to festival founder David Rhodes Brown, this is the second year for the event. Last year, the concert was held at Newport’s Southgate House as a CD release party for Brown’s debut solo album “Browngrass and Wildflowers” and a benefit for WNKU. Changing the venue allows for more acts – and an allday event, he said. Moving the festival to Rabbit Hash also opens it up for a more “family friendly event,” said festival organizer (and Brown’s fiance) Bobbi Kayser. The couple own the town’s mayor, border collie Lucy Lou, who will be in attendance, Kayser said. Brown said the idea for the WNKU fundraiser came after he went to a music festival in St. Louis where money raised went to a local public-supported radio station there. There will be 20 bands on two stages – 10 performers in the Rabbit Hash General Store and 10 on an outside stage, Brown said. “We had a hard time paring it down to 20 people,” he said. “(The acts) we got were top-notch performers.” In addition to local performers, acts come from places like Norfolk, Va., Asheville, N.C., Fort

Food and craft vendors will also be on hand and the town’s Elk Creek Vineyards store will also be opened that day, Kayser said. There is a suggested donation of $10 for the festival. All proceeds will benefit WNKU. Kayser said she hopes attendance is around 2,000 and would

like to raise at least $10,000. “It’s a great way to have a great day,” Brown said. Event parking is limited. Kayser encourages attendees to carpool if they can. There will be designated parking areas and a shuttle available. Festival line-up includes: Phillip Roebuck, Norfolk, Va.; The

Filing deadline less than a month away By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Potential candidates have only a few weeks to throw their hats into the ring. Three vacant seats are up for election in Boone County in November: • Florence City Council – vacated after the death of Ted Bushelman.

• Walton-Verona Board of Education – vacated after the resignation of Kelly Fulmer. • Walton City Council – vacated after the death of Ann Leake.

The filing deadline for all three positions is 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9. All three vacancies will be voted on Nov. 8. So far, David A. Osborne, the appointed replacement for Bushelman on Florence council, is the only candidate to file for any of the positions. As the deadline draws near, more filings are expected, said

Boone County Clerk Kenny Brown. “We’ve had several calls,” Brown said. “We anticipate some activity.” Interested candidates should refer to to www.sos.ky.gov/ elections/ or contact the Boone County Clerk’s Office at 859-3342108 for all details.

Boone County judges attend House Bill 463 training Several judges in Boone County participated in a District Judges Seminar on June 3 about how district judges are to handle pretrial release and bond determinations based on House Bill 463, which took effect June 8. Attending from Boone County were: • Court of Appeals Judge Joy A. Moore (represents Bath, Boone, Bracken, Campbell, Carroll, Fleming, Gallatin, Grant, Harrison, Henry, Kenton, Lewis, Mason, Nicholas, Oldham, Owen, Pendleton, Robertson, Shelby, Spencer

and Trimble counties) • Judge Charles T. Moore (serves Boone and Gallatin counties) • and Judge Jeff Smith (serves Boone and Gallatin counties) HB 463 is the most concentrated overhaul of Kentucky’s penal code in more than 30 years and was supported by all three branches of government. The legislation is designed to curb the cost of incarceration without compromising public safety. The three-hour seminar included an introduction to HB 463 and

in-depth training on the tool that pretrial officers use to assess risk among pretrial defendants. Pretrial officers use the results of the risk assessment to help judges determine whether to grant pretrial release to defendants. The Administrative Office of the Courts operates the statewide pretrial services program. Under HB 463, judges are required to consider the pretrial risk assessment when setting bonds and to grant pretrial release to low- and moderate-risk defen-

dants, which are those who pose a low risk of flight, are likely to appear for trial and are not likely to be a danger to others. The legislation limits bond amounts for misdemeanor offenses and mandates that defendants receive credit of $100 per day toward bond and $50 to $100 a day in jail credit toward any fines owed except in certain circumstances. HB 463 calls for law enforcement officers to cite individuals for most misdemeanor offenses rather than arrest them.

District Court is the court of limited jurisdiction and handles juvenile matters, city and county ordinances, misdemeanors, violations, traffic offenses, probate of wills, arraignments, felony probable cause hearings, small claims involving $2,500 or less, civil cases involving $5,000 or less, voluntary and involuntary mental commitments and cases relating to domestic violence and abuse. Appeals from District Court decisions are made to the local Circuit Court.

Imagine no cars, phones or iPods

Society urges young people to learn about Boone’s rural past By Nancy Daly ndaly@nky.com

BURLINGTON - The Boone County Historical Society has a request of the youth of Boone County. Turn off your iPods, your smartphones or anything else electronic for a few hours on Saturday afternoon. Come see how your Boone County forebears lived in an age of no electricity, limited transportation and grow-your-own meals. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 16, the historical society presents the third annual Boone County Heritage Days event. Antique farming equipment, old tools and farmhouse items will be on display in the Boone County Historical Society Museum, which is in the Old Boone County Clerk’s Building, 2965 Gallatin St. in Burlington.

FILE PHOTO

Rebecca Jones, of Burlington, in the hat and her mother JoAann Smith of Mooreville, Ind., sit next to the Albany Cutter sleigh from 1870 that the Jones family owns and use a little in the winter and in family Christmas cards. They were showing off the Cutter during last year’s Boone County Heritage Day Exhibit that featured old-time farm equipment and household implements. “We’re trying to preserve the memory of Boone County’s rural heritage,” said Virginia Lainhart of Hebron, whose family settled in Florence in 1855. Outside the clerk’s building, visitors will see anything from an old-fashioned sleigh, a demonstration of seed cleaning, an old Japanese saddle or old wooden hay rakes. Inside the historical society hopes to have a good

collection of household items like an antique juicer, a black cast-iron pot, a kraut cutter, a slop jar and an 1897 Sears Roebuck catalog. It will show what life was like when there was no electricity, said Lainhart, a longtime member of the historical society. Lainhart is bringing her black velvet cape, typical of the high-collared coats women wore at one time

but special because of its gold satin lining and intact jewel beading on the back. The exhibits will show “the good things of how people lived but it shows the hard times, too,” she said. “We would really love for young people to come and see how their grandparents and great-grandparents lived in old Boone County. “With all this modern stuff, we take it for granted,” Lainhart said. “Kids really have no idea.” The historical society has had success getting residents to loan antique farm or household items for Heritage Days, and Lainhart hopes this year that more visitors – especially young people – will stop by to explore Boone’s heritage. Loaned items can be brought before the exhibit opens and can be picked up at the museum at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 16, at the conclusion of the exhibit. If loaning farming and farmhouse items to the Boone County Historical Society Museum exhibit, call Lainhart at 859-6897240 or Steve and Betsy Conrad at 859-371-5882.

Thinking of taking a road trip this summer? With gas prices rising, there are plenty of things to do across the state – and in your own back yard. Mike Cooper, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Tourism, will speak at the July 19 Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce’s Eggs ‘N Issues breakfast where he will talk about “Kentucky Treasures – Tourism, Travel and State Parks.” In addition, representatives from Boone, Kenton and Campbell county parks have been invited to hand out related materials and answer questions about what they offer to area residents. According to Linda Baier, manager of networking and special events for the Chamber, Cooper will speak of the economic impact of tourism in the region and state “and how we can all benefit from understanding Kentucky’s treasures.”

“There’s so much out there we can take advantage of right in our back yards,” she said. Residents can see what’s available here without having to travel far, Baier said. There are better known attractions like Rabbit Hash, the Creation Museum or Big Bone Lick State Park, but Boone County Parks offers a number of amenities that appeal not only to local residents. According to marketing and resources coordinator Jackie Heyenbruch, Boone Woods Park has a creekside stage, amenities for kids, a variety of sports fields and an 18-hole disc golf course. Burlingon’s EnglandIdlewild park, however, offers 290 acres of wooded areas and wetlands, three fishing ponds, six miles of mountain bike trails and a 24-hole championship disc golf course. Another attraction is the Boone County Arboretum located at Central Park. Located close to the interstate, “it’s a great opportunity for families,

Burlingon’s EnglandIdlewild park, however, offers 290 acres of wooded areas and wetlands. especially during tourism season, to get off the highway to take a walk through nature,” said Laura Potter, arboretum marketing and events coordinator. Jen Warner, who owns First Farm Inn – a bed and breakfast near the Idlewild community – with her husband, Dana Kisor, said she gets a lot of people that want to interact with horses. While it is a destination site for some, sometimes the inn is “an aside.” Some travelers want the rural atmosphere provided at the inn, Warner said. The Chamber breakfast will be 7:45-9:15 a.m. Tuesday, July 19, at Receptions Banquet and Conference Center, 1379 Donaldson Road, Erlanger. The cost is $15 for preregistered chamber members and $25 for future members. Reservations required and can be made by calling 859-578-6384 or online at www.nkychamber.com.

Former Boone students win Fulbright

By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Two Boone County Schools graduates are heading abroad. University of Louisville graduates Julianne Nguyen, of Union, and Erica Summe, of Florence, were selected to study abroad for the next year through the U.S. Student Fulbright Program, an international exchange sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.

Nguyen, who will spend a year in Spain, is a 2007 graduate of Ryle High School, and Summe, who graduated from Conner High School in 2007, Nguyen will be in Argentina. While in Argentina, Summe will be an English learning assis-

Summe

tant at an English teacher training college. Nguyen will work 16 hours a week teaching English, social studies, science and other subject in metropoli-

tan Madrid. “I have a really strong interest in travel,” Nguyen said.

During her junior year at Louisville, she spent time studying in China and Chile. “I ended up spending a whole year abroad,” Nguyen said. Her time traveling gave Nguyen an “addiction to travel,” she said. That addiction added to the joy of finding she was accepted into the program, Nguyen said. “I was hysterically excited,” she said.

Nguyen will leave for Madrid at the end of August and stay until next July. “It’s a nice long Spanish experience,” she said. Summe was unable to be contacted because she is currently in South Korea as part of a 10-member U.S. student delegation participating in a U.S. Congress-Korean National Assembly Exchange Program, also funded by the U.S. State Department.

Kentucky school rank improves Kentucky’s national education ranking has risen more dramatically than virtually any other state since 1990. That’s according to the Index of Educational Progress prepared by researchers at University of Kentucky. The index combines multiple educational attainment and achievement factors. Kentucky climbed from 48th in 1990 to 33rd in 2009. Only one other state (North Carolina) advanced out of the bottom 10 with double-digit gains. “This rate of improvement is encouraging and is welcome news for the commonwealth,” said Robert King, president of the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education. “While the state’s commitment to two decades of education reforms is producing measurable gains, serious challenges remain.” The evaluation takes into account high school graduation and dropout rates as well as educational achievement - as measured by the percentage of students scoring proficient or higher on the various National Assessment of Educational Progress reading, math and science exams. Attainment and achievement have had a steady upward trend,

especially achievement. “We still rank well below other states on measures likely to become more important in a hightech global economy - such as the percentage of adults with a twoyear degree and bachelor’s degree or higher,” said Ken Troske, Sturgill Endowed Professor of Economics in UK’s Gatton College of Business and Economics and chair of the Center for Business and Economic Research, which compiled the index. Kentucky continues to lag on indicators of educational attainment among working-age adults; however rising levels of educational achievement among current students bode well for the future. Kentucky NAEP scores on fourth grade science and reading, as well as a steady decline in the dropout rate, lifted the state out of the bottom tier of states. “This report reinforces what we see in our own measures of college/career readiness. Kentucky has seen marked improvement in elementary and secondary academic performance, but we struggle in the area of preparing our students for life after high school,” said state Education Commissioner Terry Holliday.

“That’s why there is a new focus on raising standards and setting the expectation that all children will graduate from high school with the skills they need to be college and/or career ready. It’s an economic and social imperative that we can’t ignore.” Although this is an advancement in Kentucky’s rankings, there are at least five stipulations to the index: not all of the indicators used in 2009 were available in 1990; there are fundamentally important indicators not included in the index, such as those that measure achievement gaps; equal weight is given to each indicator, but some indicators are arguably more important; although rankings are ideal for determining the relative positions of states, they reveal nothing about the distance between states; and the index is biased toward primary and secondary education with only two of the 12 indicators reflecting postsecondary education outcomes. “The distance between Kentucky and leading states on virtually every measure is significant, reminding Kentuckians that educational reform and improvement is an ongoing process, not a destination,” Troske said.

More than 800 teams from the U.S. and around the world competed in World Finals. New Haven Division I, Problem 2 (Good as Gold … berg) team members included: Alec Bedel, Josh Galloway, Katie Larson, Anne Lovins, Will Henry Richards, Wyatt Richards, and Ken Ryumae. The team placed first in its division at the regional competition at Turkey Foot Middle School on March 5 and second at the state competition at Northern Kentucky University March 26. Odyssey of the Mind teams work together to creatively solve a range of problems from building

mechanical devices and vehicles and incorporating them into presentations to presenting comedy and literary classic interpretations. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state and world level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program. The team from New Haven Elementary worked together to present an uncomplicated existing item used in a simple way to complete a real-life, everyday task and created their own solution. It was a device made out of a complex series of components that performed the same task as the existing item. They incorporated their device into a unique performance and developed a marketing plan and sales pitch for the item.

FLORENCE - Despite getting multiple awards during her teaching career, Sue Osborne never expected one to come 13 years after retiring. Osborne, who taught for Covington Independent Schools and now lives in Florence, was named one of the University of Kentucky’s Teachers Who Made a Difference. Osborne had no knowledge of the award before receiving the letter in the mail telling her she was getting it. Her children all happened to be at her house when she opened the letter and she was thrilled to get to share the experience with them. “I was so moved and touched,” Osborne said. Even after 13 years of retirement, Osborne speaks often of her years in the classroom and looks back on them fondly. “All of my teaching, it was such a blessing to me,” Osborne said. Most of Osborne’s career was spent teaching at Ninth District School teaching fifth- and sixthgraders in the advanced placement program. The program was where she taught a sixth-grader named Mike Farrell. “She was someone who really made you want to come to school,” Farrell said. Farrell credits Osborne for his

Years later, Farrell’s children were taught by Osborne. “When I found out they would have her, I was excited,” Farrell said. Farrell, now a journalism professor at the University of Kentucky, nominated Osborne for the honor. Even now that Osborne is retired, that doesn’t mean she’s stopped teaching. She helped start a ministry for the homebound through Madison Avenue Christian Church. The group has about 25 volunteers who knit shawls and other items, but before it could get going Osborne had to teach everyone how to knit. “Sue Osborne is still making a difference,” said Nancy Hampton, who attends the church with Osborne.

will learn. The categories vary widely across states and different colleges. SACS is an accrediting agency covering nearly a dozen southern states, but not Ohio. The dispute at NKU appears to boil down to its definition of fine arts courses, a running argument on college campuses for generations. The university’s top officials believe the new general education program simplifies the requirements. Trundle believes it devalues the liberal arts and elevates professional preparatory courses such as those offered in the College of Informatics. Wells, the top academic official at NKU, said the uni-

versity has classified several foreign-language programs under the “humanities and fine arts” category, noting that those courses require papers on the language and culture in other countries. SACS’ own rules require candidates for a bachelor’s degree to complete at least 30 credit hours combined in three categories: Humanities/fine arts, social and behavioral sciences, and natural sciences/mathematics, with at least one course

drawn from each group. “The courses do not narrowly focus on those skills, techniques and procedures specific to a particular occupation or profession,” SACS rules state. The Education Department also said the system allows students to count a media literacy class under

that same category. SACS officials are to report back to the department by July 18. “We believe NKU followed our rules,” President Belle Wheelan said. “We believe we followed our rules. I’ll have to go back and check to make sure.” Kentucky News Service

Gail Wells said. The dustup over a program introduced last fall touches on the arcane rules of re-accreditation and has made for compelling campus politics during the last two years. But the Education Department took it to a new level June 7, writing to SACS that it had broken its own rules by failing to investigate the complaint and enforce its own policies, and should review the NKU program again. The gen-ed program reduced required general education courses to 37 credit hours from 52 hours in an attempt to reduce the blizzard of requirements that left some students scrambling to take required courses before graduating. Every NKU undergraduate is required to complete the general education curriculum before graduation. Last spring NKU enrolled nearly 3,300 Ohioans, including those in graduate programs, out of more than 15,000 students. Colleges across the country are refining how they handle general education courses by writing standards about what students

The new general education curriculum that all Northern Kentucky University students have to complete is facing criticism again, this time from the U.S. Education Department. The department has charged its own accreditor with failing to review NKU’s program and says the system could allow a student to graduate without taking courses that should be required. “You can go through NKU, a liberal arts college, without ever taking a fine arts course,” said philosophy professor Robert Trundle, one of two faculty members who filed a complaint against the group that accredits NKU, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Commission on Colleges. NKU responded that the new program not only meets accreditation standards but is a model for a statewide transfer system that ensures general education credits will transfer between the state’s public colleges. “We are confident our general education programs meet all the criteria and standards of SACS,” Provost

Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky Says Change Needed at Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission

The Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky (HBA) is taking this opportunity to state its position on an effort to alter the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission (NKAPC) and to clear up what it believes are misleading statements made in the public regarding the outcomes that may happen as a result of a successful effort to alter the organization. The Board of Directors of the HBA through a unanimous vote has decided to support the dissolution of the NKAPC. By vote the HBA supports countywide planning by the Kenton County Planning Commission, and believes that that organization should employ its own staff who is charged with fulfilling the responsibilities set forth by statute in KRS 100. This statute requires regulations across Kenton County which the HBA supports. The HBA was the main driver behind countywide planning from its inception in order to support quality and affordable housing across Northern Kentucky. Any comments to the contrary by the NKAPC are a purposeful falsehood meant to mislead the citizens of Kenton County. The NKAPC was originally set up as a “consolidation”…”which provides for a more efficient planning operation” according to KRS 147, the legislation that allows for this type of planning organization. It is notable to point out that NKAPC is the only planning unit of this type in the entire state and as such is the only planning unit capable of levying taxes upon the homeowners and business community in its jurisdiction. Based upon the HBA’s interest and commitment to good planning, the HBA was integral in the formation of NKAPC fifty years ago. The original intent was to service the counties of Boone, Kenton and Campbell, in order to provide for a unified comprehensive plan, zoning regulations, and subdivision regulations across the Tri-County area. Boone County never joined and in the early 1980’s Campbell County spoke through a vote of its residents and seceded from the NKAPC to operate its own planning department. Since then the NKAPC has been operating outside of the spirit of the enabling legislation in one Kenton County alone, thereby creating a taxing money funnel to provide services to one county. Comments have been made publicly by the NKAPC Chairman that what is being attempted will, “turn back the clock to the 1950’s”. The HBA disagrees. The NKAPC has been operating on a fifty year old model that no longer meets the intent of the enabling statute or the needs of the residents of Kenton County, and underperforms while taxing and spending Kenton County into an economic disadvantage. Today’s planning commissions are more responsive, with a higher level of accountability and efficiencies; both in funding and in operations. Because NKAPC doesn’t rely upon the general funds of the county and fees from its operation solely the organization doesn’t answer to Kenton County residents. A track record of successful small area plans is not the legacy of the NKAPC. Several of their plans have not worked in real world applications. In fact many of their plans contain burdensome mandates and unrealistic components that hinder growth and further suppress the economy. The NKAPC has worked on a total of six such studies in one year alone. This accounts for hundreds of thousands of tax payers dollars that are being wasted by studies that don’t work in the real world and are being funded from city and countywide taxes. At times there are no answers as to who has initiated such studies and we have asked with no response. Specifically, The Hills study that is currently being worked on has no entity that specifically asked for the birth of this study. The current draft of the subdivision regulations that the NKAPC is proposing to roll out is not an update but a complete rewrite costing thousands of dollars. The HBA has reviewed it and found many of the items in that regulation will increase the cost of housing and new industry by thousands of dollars, further stifling growth in Kenton County and placing the cities and the county in further fiscal turmoil and through thorough engineering analysis will not solve the issues that they are intended to solve. A team of engineers has studied the issue and are offering a better solution that actually solves the problem while not stopping growth and costing more jobs in Kenton County. Today’s planning commissions are more accountable and responsible. The NKAPC has a governance structure unlike any other planning commission in the state. In fact there are literally two planning commissions in Kenton County. Most people may not know that Kenton County already has a Kenton County Planning Commission. That commission is created just like every other commission in the state. The only difference is that they contract with the NKAPC to fulfill their responsibilities to KRS 100, the statute that all other commissions operate under. Recently, the NKAPC Chairman’s public remarks indicated that there would be no comprehensive plan, no staff to update said plan, and no inspections of subdivision streets and sidewalks among other comments. These are the responsibility of the Kenton County Municipal Planning & Zoning Commission under KRS 100. These services should continue under that organization with full county control and a budget not to exceed $1,750,000; not the $4.8 million burden that the NKAPC is today. This would save the taxpayers of Kenton County $3 million and create a $7.4 million economic benefit for Kenton County every year. At the NKAPC there is an appointed council that nominates and elects the area planning commission members. This system of appointments and elections has created a scenario where there is not a broad base of citizen and representation or oversight on their commissions. The NKAPC budget approval is a rushed and haphazard process and is purposely done so as to spend the money that is guaranteed by their onerous tax. The Kenton County Planning Commission members are appointed by the cities and the county. As a result they are more accountable to the citizens of those cities and Kenton County. Under a new scenario the budget would have to be approved at the fiscal court level rather than at an annual dinner party as is currently the case. However, because the County Planning Commission contracts with NKAPC to provide for their statutory responsibilities there is a wall that is built between the citizens and the regulations, studies, and mandates handed down by the NKAPC. As a result the NKAPC has become unaccountable and less responsive in their activities. In as much as efficiency is concerned the NKAPC is sorely weak in this area. It is the duty of an area planning commission to “provide(s) for a more efficient planning operation”. The exact opposite is true. For example in handling building permits, what takes other organizations two or three days takes the NKAPC two or three weeks in many cases. Between 2002 and 2010 Kenton County accounted for 5,187 residential building permits. During that same time period Boone County accounted for 10,439; more than double that of Kenton County. Currently the NKAPC has 34 active staff working on planning functions, while the Boone County Planning Commission has 15. Recently an attempt has been made to justify the waste at NKAPC. NKAPC proponents made a desperate attempt to lump the Boone County Planning Commission’s budget in with additional services from the Boone County Public Works Department, the Boone County Building Department, the Florence Public Services Department and donated overhead from Boone County. The number for all of services in Boone County that NKAPC came up with was $2,819,804. However, this is not an apples to apples comparison as the NKAPC purposefully left out services in Kenton County from the Park Hills Public Works Department, Elsmere Public Works Department, Elsmere Code Enforcement Department, Ludlow Building & Zoning Department, Ludlow Code Enforcement Department, Ludlow Public Works Department, Lakeside Park Public Works Department, Walton Public Works Department, Walton Code Enforcement, Edgewood General Services Department, Covington Code Enforcement Department, Covington Building & Zoning Department, Covington Department of Public Improvements, Independence Public Works Department, Independence Building Inspection Department, Independence Zoning Administration Department, Ft. Wright Public Works Department, Villa Hills Public Works Department, Villa Hills Building Inspections Department, Ft. Mitchell Public Works Department, Fairview Code Enforcement Department, Bromley Code Enforcement Department, Crestview Hills Public Works Department, Crescent Springs Public Services Department, and the Kenton County Public Works Department. The estimated total costs for all of these services in Kenton County equal $6,224,993. So what are the taxpayers of Kenton County getting for their money? Kenton County gets 29.28% of new homes constructed over the last 16 years in the Tri-County area, while Boone County gets 58.68%. Kenton County gets 24.58% of newly constructed commercial structures while Boone County gets 63.04%. Kenton County gets 37.45% of the reinvigorated commercial structures while Boone County gets 55.54%. What does this mean? Boone County gets the jobs, higher personal income for its citizens and a stronger fiscal future for its government, while Kenton County gets less and less while the NKAPC taxes and spends more and more. Due to this discussion several cities are beginning to question what their taxpayers are getting for the underperforming investment their tax dollars are getting at NKAPC. We all need to be asking these same questions. Kenton County will be stronger without the NKAPC’s tax burden. A stronger Kenton County means a stronger region with more jobs, a higher income potential for its wage earners and a more fiscally stable government that can provide essential services that we all need for our safety and economic vitality. Again, and it bears repeating due to misinformation spread by the NKAPC, the HBA supports countywide consolidation of planning services and regulation under the responsibility of one Kenton County Planning Commission. This issue will make it on the November ballot. If voters are successful and dissolve the NKAPC the resolution of duties of the NKAPC rests upon the fiscal court in accordance with state statute. The NKAPC has over $2.8 million in the bank and in investments which can be used to set up a modern and effective system. There will be the need for the Kenton County Planning Commission to receive funding through the general funds of the county in addition to fees that the commission will collect as a result of their approval and review processes. As a result, there will be greater scrutiny by the public. There will be higher accountability to the people at fiscal court meetings. The planning services in Kenton County will operate in a more cost efficient and accountable manner. Building inspections should continue under county and/or city control. Currently nearly half of the cities in Kenton County do not use the NKAPC for code enforcement and other services as explained above. Despite the NKAPC members’ scare tactics the numbers don’t lie. Neither does the obvious need for change at the NKAPC. Support a strong Kenton County and Axe the Tax! Paid for by the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky. CE-0000468811

Regionals here for Boone knothole teams By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BOONE COUNTY - Continuity is often key in all levels of sports. It holds true in knothole baseball as well, where the Reds of Boone County have been playing together since day one in organized ball. Now in Class B1, the Reds enjoyed their first district championship this year and are in their second appearance in the regional tournament in three years. “The majority of the team has been together since D1,” head coach Bob Thacker said. “They are a great group of young men who

play their hardest every time they hit the field. Of course, behind all successful teams are the parents that work hard to get the boys to every game and practice no matter how much advance notice is given.” The Reds squad is one of 12 Boone County teams that advanced to the regionals of the knothole city tournament. The tourney began July 5 and is a double-elimination format. Two teams from each district square off with foes from Kenton and Campbell counties. The regional champs advance to the city tournament “final four” to compete against three Ohio teams. Barring heat-related postpone-

Freedom return home July 18 The Traverse City Beach Bums put up six runs in five innings off of Freedom hurler Tim Holmes and that’s all they needed in 6-3 rubber match win Sunday night, July 10. Holmes started the last game for the Freedom before the Frontier League All-Star break, but he gave up three home runs and received his fifth loss of the season. JT Hall hit a solo homer off of Holmes in the first inning to put the Beach Bums on top. The Freedom failed to capitalize on five walks by Traverse City starter Don Pugliese in the first three innings as they were held scoreless and stranded six. Traverse City started the fourth inning with back-toback singles by Jose Vargas and Jeff Flagg. Tom Zebroski’s one-out single brought home a run and Hector Bernal followed with a three-run blast to right to give the Beach Bums a 5-0 lead. After Traverse City added a run in the fifth on Hall’s second solo shot of the game, the Freedom answered in the bottom half. Drew Rundle lifted a three-run jack to right field to cut the Beam Bums lead in half, but it was the only offense the Freedom could manufacture. The Freedom stranded 13 on the base paths, as they left runners on first and second in the sixth and seventh innings against Beach Bum relievers. Mike Hanley pitched a clean inning and Alec Lewis

ments, July 11 was scheduled to be a big day in all regional tournaments. Winner’s bracket finals in all classes were scheduled to take place, and multiple teams were eliminated in the loser’s bracket. The Reds are accepting sponsorships at www.leaguelineup.com/05reds. The Heroes were second to the Reds and also advanced to the regional in D1. The NKY Flames won its district in Class C2, tying for first place with the Fighting Irish, as both teams were 13-1 in the regular season. The Flames won an extra playoff game for the title and are 23-4 overall.

The Flames, who have players from all over the county, were 410 last year. “Our pitching is much better than last year,” head coach Brian Henschen said. “We had a concentration on it this year. At this age level, if you get two or three solid pitchers you will have a solid season. We scored about the same number of runs as last year but we gave up a lot less and we didn’t walk as many people.” Victory Community Bank, the C1 champion, were one of two undefeated teams in the county in district play at 14-0. The Bobcats were second at 12-2 and will advance to the

regionals as well. (All records are in-district only and do not count tournaments and additional games). The other spotless squad was the Patriots in Class D. Team Ignite (11-3) finished second.

“As drugs are to crime, so cigarettes are to trash.” So one group member said after members of Florence Alliance Church Bible Quizzing group cleaned Hopeful Church Road between Ky. 18 and U.S. 42, and Cayton Road between Hopeful Church and Mall roads. We gathered trash in six groups, on opposite sides of three portions of the route. Generally, the cleanup experience was “gross.” All of us noticed a lot of cigarettes (brown, white, or 3-inches wide and rainsoaked), mostly caught in grass and plant debris. People simply taking care of their own cigarettes would do a ton to keep our community cleaner. We also found mower-decimated Styrofoam, garage sale sign and firework remnants, personal items, mower parts, a tube, a tire, many non-winning lottery tickets, wrappers, cans, cups and bottles.

Hillbilly stereotypes spark political spat A controversy about Eastern Kentucky stereotypes has developed in the Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture race. Agriculture Commissioner is a statewide elected office in Kentucky. The Republican nominee, State Rep. Jamie Comer, released a video recently showing his Democratic opponent, Bob Farmer of Louisville, joking about Eastern Kentucky during a comedy performance in Indiana. Comer posted clips of Farmer saying “Eastern Kentucky” is a “different kind of place” where “cars are on blocks and houses are on wheels.” Another clip showed Farmer saying that the FBI would not do work in an Eastern Kentucky county because “all the DNA is alike and there ain’t no dental records.” Another clip had Farmer saying that people in Eastern Kentucky don’t trust him. “You know, I had shoes on, I got all my teeth.” WYMT in Hazard did a report on the controversy showing a clip of Farmer saying that “they don’t move their lips when they talk” and making fun of the speaking style. In a statement to the news media, Farmer apologized for the remarks. He said that “I apologize if it offends anyone. I don’t want to offend people.” Farmer told the Lexington Herald Leader that he had done the comedy routine for 25 years and no one has complained. The Republican Party of Kentucky has called for Farmer to withdraw from the race. That is extremely unlikely as it would leave Comer as the automatic winner. Kentucky law does not allow replacing a primary opponent after a nominee is chosen. The law about not allowing a party to replace a nominee was passed by a Democratic legislature after the 1978 congressional elec-

John Breckinridge in the 1978 Democratic primary. According to the Lexington Herald Leader, Pike County Judge Executive Wayne T. Rutherford, who is a Democrat, sent a letter to the Herald Leader saying that Farmer is “no longer welcome here.” The Herald Leader also quoted Rutherford saying, “During his visit to Pike County in April of this year, he was treated with the utmost respect,” Rutherford said. “And, by the way, I don’t know if he noticed but I had shoes on and all of my teeth.” Just like in the case of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, the first bit of news breaking from YouTube and social networks has sparked additional information about Farmer to hit the Internet. Jacob Payne, a well respected investigative journalist who blogs for the website Page One Kentucky, posted on his website a longer YouTube version of Farmer’s comedy routine. For decades, Eastern Kentucky has suffered the brunt of stereotypes. Television shows like the “Beverly Hillbillies” made millions of dollars off those stereotypes, although Appalachian activists like Gurney Norman have waged a fierce battle to keep the image out of the media. Don McNay, of Richmond, is a columnist and author.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Cigarettes are a scourge to the roadways

Boone County Recorder

July 14, 2011

RECORDER

The price of an imperfect system I spent last week in New York City at Thrillerfest, a convention for lovers of thriller novels. It is a wonderful annual gathering where readers get to meet their favorite authors and authors get to break bread with their fans and colleagues. Everywhere I turned, my fellow authors (and most people in the Big Apple for that matter) were talking about the most intriguing whodunit in years – and I’m not referencing Jeffrey Deaver’s brilliant new treatment of James Bond in 007 Carte Blanche. People were talking about the Casey Anthony verdict, a topic I discussed with Sean Hannity as a guest on his “Great American Panel.” I was relieved when Sean and I shared a similar opinion on the verdict. We both believe that Casey Anthony probably had something to do with the death of her daughter, but that the state failed to meet its legal burden to prove her involvement. No author at Thrillerfest would have tried to write the Casey Anthony story as fiction because the outcome would be too hard for a reader to believe. When I was a second-year law student, my criminal procedure professor went to great lengths to explain the three purposes for punishment: deterrence, rehabilitation and incapacitation. I had to fend off a tide of liberal outrage when I suggested that there was a fourth purpose: retribution. The desire for retribution often produces powerful emotions. Failing to satisfy that desire tends to undermine confidence in the system. And that is part of what drives many of those who are attacking the system over Casey Anthony – no retribution, no justice.

Most people can’t even bring themselves to consider what it would feel like to lose a child. The thought is too damn painful. Only a narcissisRick tic sociopath Robinson would hit the Community party trail and a tattoo folRecorder get lowing such a guest tragedy. columnist As a father of three beautiful kids, I have to admit that I personally want justice for Caylee Anthony in the form of retribution against whoever killed her. But because I believe in the rule of law, I am willing to accept the verdict knowing that in our system only people who are convicted of crimes are punished for them. It is nauseating to realize that Casey Anthony was afforded legal privileges not given to her dead daughter. It seems hideous, gross and contemptible to award legal privilege to vile people – at least until someone is wrongfully accused. Then those rights allow an innocent person to walk free. Americans hate it when people who seem guilty of crimes aren’t convicted of them, but we must accept these verdicts as the painful price we pay for a system that is designed to ensure that no one who is falsely accused of a crime suffers at the hands of society’s primal desire for retribution. Our criminal justice system isn’t broken. Nevertheless, the Casey Anthony verdict does highlight two flaws in the system. First, statistics show that juries are unlikely to return guilty ver-

dicts in capital murder cases when the defendant is a woman. If the prosecution can be faulted for anything in the Anthony case, it may be for seeking the death penalty against a female when the underlying evidence was all circumstantial. While media coverage prior to Casey Anthony’s indictment may well have forced the prosecutor’s hand politically, it was a bad decision that overshadowed the entire case. Had the death penalty not hovered so large over the case, the jury might have returned a different verdict on the lesser charges. Second, O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark made a very good point last week when she wrote that juries often confuse “reason for doubt” with “reasonable doubt.” The Casey Anthony legal team threw out lots of reasons to doubt. Whether any of those actually could have supported the jury’s finding of “reasonable doubt” will be debated for years. Many have argued that “reasonable doubt” has been elevated by the so-called “CSI Effect,” where jurors expect evidence presented at trials to fall neatly into place. However, after watching closing arguments, putting Gary Sinise himself on the stand might not have been able to save the prosecutors’ case against Casey Anthony. It’s likely that no one will ever be punished for killing Caylee Anthony. That’s the price we pay for enjoying an imperfect system.

Putting $1 trillion into perspective Not only has Washington’s spending binge left us with a record national debt in excess of $14 trillion and an enormous $1.5 trillion annual deficit, but unemployment is still too high at 9.8 percent in Kentucky and our economy is stagnant at best amid fears of a double dip recession. House Republicans are working to reverse this trend. We already passed a fact-based budget plan that would reduce spending by more than $6 trillion over 10 years when compared to the president’s budget. Now, we are demanding significant spending cuts and reforms as part of any increase to the debt limit. At the same time, it has been more than 800 days since Senate Democrats passed any budget. In Washington, too many people throw around numbers with billions and trillions on the end without flinching. However, they seem to have forgotten that a billion has nine zeros and a trillion has 12 zeros. These numbers are so large that it can be difficult to put them into the perspective of our daily lives. Here are a few examples to help: One of our top priorities in Northern Kentucky, both for our safety and economy, is to replace the Brent Spence Bridge between Covington and Cincinnati. This critical infrastructure project is expected to cost up to $3 billion, more than the entire annual trans-

One of our top priorities in Northern Kentucky, both for our safety and economy, is to replace the Brent Spence Bridge between Covington and Cincinnati.

With $1 trillion, you could build this mega-project 333 times.

portation budgets of Kentucky and Ohio combined. With $1 trillion, you could build this mega-project 333 times. You could also buy more than 540,000,000,000 (billion) cheese coneys (with mustard and onions) from your favorite chili parlor. If you lined them up end to end, they would circle the globe 1,714 times. This is enough to give eighty cheese coneys to every man, woman and child on Earth, or to give every single Kentuckian four cheese coneys a day for life – including free oyster crackers. With one trillion dollars you could buy 277,000,000,000 (billion) gallons of gas at the current average price of $3.60 per gallon. This is twice the total amount of gasoline consumed in the United States last year. You could also buy more than 49,000,000 (million) new Toyota Camrys made in Scott County and

designed in Erlanger. This would be about four times as many cars as were sold in the United States last year. It is hard to imagine hundreds of bridges or hundreds of billions of cheese coneys because the idea of a trillion dollars is mind boggling even when put into these terms. Yet we must come to terms with our $14 trillion debt and $1.5 trillion deficit because these bills will have to be paid either by us or future generations of Americans. We did not get into this mess overnight, and we will not get out of it overnight. To stop the Washington spending spree, the government needs a realistic workout plan to reduce the deficit, and to start paying down our massive debt. The debt limit and budget negotiations must make significant progress toward that goal. U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Hebron, is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Schrage’s family stunned after accidental death By Cindy Schroeder

Dynaflow that the father and son were restoring. “He loved anything mechanical,” Bob Schrage said. “Andrew could fix anything inside or outside the house.” Andrew, who was active in his church’s youth group, also was quick to volunteer if something was broken at his church. The engineering student had one more semester of

RABBIT HASH - In his 22 years, Andrew Schrage lived a fuller life than many people decades older, friends and family said. “Andrew was a very passionate person,” said his longtime pastor, the Rev. Trish Standifur of Bullittsville Christian Church. “As a high school kid, he would ask me, ‘Could you help this person or pray for so and so?’ He was passionate about everything, whether it was cars or hunting. But most of all, he loved his family dearly.” Some people take a lifetime to find their soul mate, Standifur said. But Andrew, who was in his senior year at the Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville, met his one and only girlfriend - Jessica Leick of Burlington - while both were in marching band at Conner High School. “A lot of people spend a lifetime searching for their soul mate, but Andrew found his at a very young age,” Standifur said. “He lived a lot of life in a very short time.” Andrew Schrage, whose father, Bob, retired last year as assistant director of the Northern Kentucky Area Development District, died July 6 in a freak accident at the Louisville home that the 2007 Conner High School graduate was renting with several other college students. Andrew Schrage was working to ground the wires of his detached garage

when his girlfriend witnessed him grab a wire and then become unresponsive, said Jo-Ann Farmer, chief deputy Jefferson County coroner. His death was ruled an electrocution. “It’s just so tough,” Andrew’s father said July 7, as friends and family gathered at the Rabbit Hash home where Andrew grew up. “He was such a great kid with a great future ahead of him.” From an early age, Andrew enjoyed tinkering with mechanical things. As a youngster, he watched as his grandfather changed the oil or the windshield wiper fluid on his car. By age 14, Andrew was changing the brakes on the

family car, his father said. While in high school, he put down hardwood floors in his room. “One time, we told him, it would be really neat to have a deck up in the woods,” his father said. “That afternoon, he built this beautiful two-tiered deck.” Andrew Schrage enjoyed hunting, fishing, and hiking, especially at Red River Gorge. Last month, he took part in an international competition at the Michigan Motor Speedway for engineering students who build and race cars. Recently, Andrew’s father had purchased a classic 1951 Buick Super

Easy dishes to pull out for any picnic, potluck Bodacious baked beans

Rita is on vacation for the next two weeks. The following is a selection of her “best of” recipes.

It’s summer and that means lots of folks celebrating the season with family cookouts, potlucks and picnics. Here are some good “take-along” recipes that can be done in advance. And that’s a bonus for everybody, especially the cook!

Is there a picnic that d o e s n ’ t Rita i n c l u d e Heikenfeld b a k e d beans? Don’t Rita’s think so. But baked kitchen beans don’t have to be boring. Elevate them to new heights with this recipe which is one of

chopped 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped but not peeled 6 strips bacon, sautéed and cut up Mix everything together. Pour into sprayed casserole. Bake in 350 degree oven about 40 to 50 minutes, until bubbly and no longer real runny. It gets thicker as it cools. Delicious hot, room temperature or cold. Serves six to eight.

Rita’s seven-layer salad

Anywhere from half to a pound of bacon, cut into small pieces, fried and drained 1 head of iceberg lettuce, enough to make two nice layers in a big bowl 6-7 hard-boiled eggs, sliced 10 oz. or so pkg. of frozen peas, thawed 4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese 1 bunch green onions, sliced Enough mayonnaise for last layer, a cup or so Salt and pepper Put half the lettuce in the bottom of a big bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put egg slices on top, enough to cover. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer half the green onions on. Sprinkle peas on top of that, the bacon, the rest of the lettuce, 2 cups cheddar. Spread mayonnaise on top making sure you cover the entire top. Cover and chill eight to

24 hours. To serve, sprinkle the rest of the cheddar on top and the rest of the green onions. Now if you don’t like that many green onions, leave them off of the top.

Tink Stewart’s blueberry buckle

OK, so when Tink brought this over, she told me it was a Betty Crocker recipe but I know it had Tink’s touch – that extra bit of love folded in. I’ve adapted it slightly. Delicious. 2 cups flour 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 21⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 3 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 cup shortening 3 ⁄4 cup milk 1 egg slightly beaten 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed and drained) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray or grease 9inch square or round pan. Blend everything but berries and beat 30 seconds. Stir in berries. Spread into pan. Sprinkle with crumb topping and bake 40 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Drizzle with glaze.

Perfectly grilled salmon

The 70-30 rule applies to any seafood on the grill. Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of the fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed as much as possible. (Or just put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on the first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows the fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule about seven to 10 minutes per inch of thickness works well, too. Here’s how I season mine: Brush four salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, with skin (or not) on both sides with olive or other oil. Season both sides with salt and 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (this is enough for all four) and the juice of a lime (about 2 tablespoons). Grill as indicated above.

Previously, the centers were open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. According to Dr. Lynne M. Saddler, district director of health. “After three years of offering early morning and early evening appointments, we found that the demand simply was not high enough to justify it each day in all four health centers. At the same time, we realize that some clients may require evening appointments. With the Tuesday evening hours, we feel we’ll find the right balance for the Health Department and the community.” The Boone County Health Center is at 7505 Burlington Pike, Florence. Call 859-363-2060.

An Open Letter to Kenton County Residents

A fox in the hen house: Don’t let what happened on Wall Street happen to NKAPC in Kenton County For years, lobbyists for investment banks and financial institutions on Wall Street worked hard to eliminate government oversight of their industry. These efforts paid off handsomely for these institutions and their executives, who earned billions of dollars in profits and bonuses. The only problem is that this scheme led to the subprime mortgage crisis and greatest financial failure the United States since the Great Depression. Millions of Americans lost their jobs and their homes. Our government bailed out several of these companies that were “too big to fail.” And once again, American taxpayers were left holding the bag. Now, an industry group is trying to do the same thing in Kenton County. The board of directors of the Homebuilders Association of Northern Kentucky (HBA) recently voted unanimously to support the dissolution of the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission (NKAPC), the government agency that has provided oversight and regulation of the homebuilding and the construction industry in Kenton County for the past 50 years. HBA has co-opted the local Tea Party in its effort and is now spearheading a drive to eliminate NKAPC. This group is asking residents of Kenton County to sign a petition to dissolve NKAPC. Eliminating this important local regulator will have dire consequences in the future for Kenton County, its cities, and its citizens. HBA wants to be the fox in the hen house. They want to build streets, sidewalks, and structures based on their own standards, not the standards developed by NKAPC with the input of city and county officials. HBA’s effort to eliminate NKAPC started after the NKAPC staff recommended stricter standards for road construction in subdivisions. NKAPC studied this issue at the request of local governments and found that Kenton County taxpayers were footing the bills to reconstruct failing streets. NKAPC is overseen by the 19 local governments in Kenton County. The county and 18 cities are all represented on NKAPC’s oversight board. NKAPC is funded by an ad valorem tax of real estate. What does this tax cost a Kenton County taxpayer? Around $48 a year for the owner of a $150,000 house. That’s less than what it costs to fill up your car with a tank of gas today. We believe that is a small price to pay to continue to maintain the quality of life in Kenton County that NKAPC has helped us to achieve. Please let NKAPC continue its important work to ensure that builders and developers properly construct our streets and sidewalks, thoughtfully develop our hillsides, and comply with zoning codes and regulations to construct buildings that are safe for the public. Because the HBA and the Tea Party are spreading a lot of misinformation about the NKAPC, what it does, and how it does it, we thought that it was important that you know the truth.

Don’t let what happened on Wall Street happen in Kenton County. Don’t let the fox into the hen house. Refuse to sign the petition to dissolve the NKAPC. Paid for by Concerned Citizens and Elected Officials in Kenton County. No public funds were used to pay for this message. CE-0000468400

Alliance offers energy assessments For a limited time, the nonprofit Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance is offering homeowners in Hamilton, Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties a three- to fivehour assessment of their home’s potential energy inefficiencies. Normal cost of that review – which includes an

in-depth examination of a home’s heating and air conditioning systems – would run between $300 and $400. The alliance’s assessment will be $50. The Energy Alliance will also pay for 35 percent worth of energy improvements. That means that a qualifying homeowner

would spend just $3,300 for a $5,000 in improvements. The Energy Alliance would pay the remaining $1,700. Low-interest financing is also available. Through a partnership with Kentucky Home Performance, Kentucky residents can benefit from a reduced 3.99 percent interest rate through Aug. 31.

The average home energy improvement is estimated to save the homeowner 20 percent or more on monthly energy bills, he said. To find how much you could save and to schedule as assessment go to http://www.greatercea.org/ user/register.

Zucchini, summer squash in season Summer squash is coming on strong. Soon it will be the time when home gardeners start sharing their crop with most anyone they can find. You can find a variety of summer squash at Diane farmers marMason kets. Extension Zucchini, patty pan, Notes and yellow squashed, with their thin skins are known as summer squash. They can typically be interchanged in recipes. Summer squash is low in calories, containing only 20 calories per 1 cup raw. It contains vitamins A and C and is naturally free of fat, cholesterol and sodium. Summer squash should be picked or purchased when small and tender; both skin and seeds are eaten. The peel holds many of the nutrients so do not peel. It should be harvested at 6 to 8 inches in length. Store in crisper. Plan to use it within two to three days as it tends to have a short shelf life. Wash squash just before preparation. Summer squash is a mild-flavored vegetable and combines well with herbs and seasonings. A favorite is to stir fry with garlic and onions. Freezing: Select small squash with small seeds and tender rind. Grate. Spread on a cookie sheet and place in freezer until frozen. Place frozen zucchini in freezer safe containers, label, date and return to freezer. It is not recommended for canning due to the delicate nature of the product.

Zucchini and Corn Sauté

2 cups fresh or frozen corn 2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced 1 medium green pepper, thinly sliced 1 medium sweet red pepper, thinly sliced 1 teaspoon canola oil (optional) 1 teaspoon garlic salt (optional) 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning Heat oil in large skillet. Sauté zucchini and peppers until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Sauté 3 to 4 minutes longer or until corn is tender. Yield: 10 servings. Nutritional Analysis: 39 calories, 1 g protein, 7 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, <1 g fat, 102 mg sodium.
