Plans for apartments near the Walton Towne Center got their final denial, but not without confusion or controversy. Walton City Council was asked to approve the recommendation of the Boone County Planning Commission that would deny turning 6.9 acres on the east side of Wenstrup Drive, near the town center, into an apartment complex with between 72 and 96 units. The land is currently zoned Commercial 2, and the apartments would’ve required that be changed

to Urban Residential 2. The vote was taken at a City Council meeting with about 40

residents on hand. Because a public hearing was already held on the issue by the planning commission, council could vote only on the testimony from that hearing. All discussion at the City Council meeting that wasn’t based on the hearing’s testimony was not allowed to be used when deciding. The land is owned by Walton Land Development Company LLC, who had James Berling on hand at the meeting. “I sort of apologize for stirring up a mess,” Berling said. “We didn’t mean it.” Berling believes apartments are a good use for the land but didn’t

know there was “a stigma about apartments” in Walton, he said. The zoning change faced opposition from the planning commission, who felt it was too close to railroad tracks, and WaltonVerona Schools, who feared a strain on the district by adding more students. “Our school district is bursting at the seams,” said Board of Education Chairman Bill Wethington. Gerald Dusing, an attorney representing Berling, pointed out similar apartments built by the same developer in Burlington that were

Boone’s Breakfast with Santa a treat By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

It’s nine o’clock on a frigid morning in December, and about 25 families are gathered at the Boone Links Clubhouse in Florence with smiles on their faces as they prepare to have Breakfast with Santa. The event is not so much about the breakfast, which is doughnut holes and juice. But the Santa part is overwhelming, causing wide eyes and the need to hide behind Mommy’s legs in some little ones, and smiles, hugs and excitement in others. There are three sessions of breakfast each day for four days, and anywhere from 20 to 45 children 5 years old and younger attend each one. “We have held this event for 26 years,” said Mary Ann Neltner, program planner for Boone County Parks. “As the crowds got bigger, we added on to Santa, Mrs. Santa, Rudolph and an elf with Chris Mouse, Frosty and Chilly Willy. It’s better, because it eased the pressure on Rudolph, and the children love the characters.” The breakfast event starts with Chris Mouse leading parents and children into the festively decorated room where Mrs. Santa, flanked by elves, waits to read the children a story. Then the small guests are guided to tables for breakfast, but as the various characters make their grand entrance, the doughnuts usually take a back seat. And when Santa comes in and takes a seat, the children are awed, and the parents have their

most secret wishes have been shared. “We still have the books we got the first time we came,” said Adria Nullmeier, from Hebron, who has 4-year-old twins. “It’s a good event, not too intense for the children, and well planned. The kids love the characters.” April Soden comes all the way from Pendleton County with her mom, and feels that Breakfast with Santa is a family tradition

now. “I found out about it when my son was little, and he is 10 now,” she explained. “It’s nice because it is not crowded, and you don’t have to wait in line like at the mall. Santa is the most important part, but the kids like all the characters, too. It really puts you in the Christmas mood.” For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/boonecounty.

Airport travel plaza to create 50 jobs By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Boone County is offering some risk-free help for a new travel plaza. The county is issuing industrial building revenue bonds to AVCAP CVG, LLC for the construction of a plaza containing a gas station, convenience store and fast food restaurant on Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport

property. The bonds are the county’s share of federally issued bonds designed to stimulate economic growth. Boone County had already given its share to other projects, so other counties are using theirs for the project and using Boone County as the issuing agent, said County Administrator Jeff Earlywine. “We’re a conduit for the financing and we don’t have a financial

The new travel plaza will be located near the rental car businesses on airport property and will let travelers grab items they need as they are coming or going from the airport, Earlywine said.

found to have only added 21 students to Boone County Schools. Council member Michael Simpson showed concern about the school district getting so involved in city affairs. “The school’s main task is to teach our children – nothing more, nothing less,” Simpson said. Dusing also believed many were opposed to the zone change because apartment dwellers are “secondclass citizens.” “It’s just wrong,” Dusing said. The vote came down to a 2-2 tie. Council member Ann Leake was absent due to illness and didn’t vote. Michael Simpson and Lee Frakes voted no – which means they voted to reject the planning commission’s recommendation to deny the zoning change. Wayne Carlisle and Paula Jolley voted to accept the recommendation. Outgoing council member Sharon MacDonald refused to vote on the issue. If the majority of council doesn’t vote to reject the planning commission’s recommendation, it stands, said Mayor Phillip Trzop. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/walton.

Grants aimed at underage drinking Kentucky State Police is accepting grant proposals for underage drinking prevention projects. Through a federal program, KSP will make available over $300,000 in grant funds for Kentucky projects that address the dangers of underage drinking. “Enforcement is vital to reducing underage drinking in Kentucky, but it must be accompanied by an educational component that will bring awareness about the serious dangers involved,” said Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer . “These federal dollars will allow communities to work together to identify local needs and sustain a successful strategy to combat underage drinking.” For more information about the EUDL grant program, please contact Sherry Bray at 502-782-1781. Applications for the 2011 EUDL block grant must be submitted to the KSP Public Affairs Branch, 919 Versailles Road, Frankfort, Ky. 40601 on or before Jan. 18, 2011, by 4:30 p.m.

Christmas is the time of year when people like to decorate their houses to mirror the goodwill and sentiment of the season. Residents of Juniper Lane, off Tamarack and Weaver roads in Florence, have a tradition of making their street glow, just for the sheer pleasure of prettiness. “Several years ago, the cul-de-sac was so lighted and decorated, people would come from all around to drive past the houses,” said Judy Copenhaver, who lives farther down the street. “I remember that the people who lived there decided they could put the crowds to good use, and they started a toy drive for children by putting signs up that asked people to donate new toys, and take them to

the Claxon Fire House up the street.” Florence Fire Chief Marc Muench doesn’t remember when that occurred, but says people come to see the lights on Juniper Lane all the time. “I’ve only been here five years,” he said. “So I don’t remember the toy drive. But people on Juniper definitely go the extra mile for decorating. Mainly it’s the people on the cul-de-sac who go crazy, but lights are all the way up and down the street, as well as on Tamarack and Evergreen.” Bill and Maria Wolfe live next to Copenhaver, and they remember the festival atmosphere of the end of their street. “We have young children, and one of the residents used to have a big sleigh on his front lawn where he would sit on Christmas Eve and hand out candy canes to children who came by,” Bill Wolfe said. “I haven’t seen him recently, but they still really

Progress, but no solution, in 911 funding By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Local leaders are struggling to find a way to fairly fund emergency dispatch. A 10-person committee wrapped up discussions on funding for 911 service funding in Boone County. The committee was formed after Florence withdrew part of its funding for the service. In the past, the service was 75 percent funded by the county and 25 percent funded by Florence. Florence City Council member Mel Carroll complained that Florence residents were being charged twice for the service while everyone else only paid once. “All citizens need to make the same level of con-

light up the street down there. We always decorate, too. It helps to put you in the Christmas spirit.” Jennifer and Steve Lipps live on the cul-de-sac, and every inch of their house is decorated, even the basketball hoop. “We have three children, and that is what Christmas is really for and about,” said Jennifer Lipps. “We haven’t had as many people who come by to see the lights as we used to have, and that’s a little sad, because we love having people come by to see our lights. But we won’t stop decorating, because we like it so much.” Chief Muench likes to see all the lights, too. “I think it is fairly typical of close-knit neighborhoods to get together with a group effort like this,” he said. “It’s really nice to look forward to, and it goes a long way to helping with the Christmas spirit.” For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/florence.

tribution,” Carroll. Florence is under no contractual obligation to pay for the service and pulled part of its funding. “We have finally gotten the decision makers to address the issue,” Carroll said. The committee featured representatives from Florence City Council, Boone County Fiscal Court, fire protection districts around the county, businesses and residents. “The committee felt (Florence’s) position had some merit,” said County Administrator Jeff Earlywine in a report he gave to the Fiscal Court. All parties need to examine the funding for the service and see if there are any benefits to working with Kenton and Campbell counties for regional services, Earlywine said. Striking the balance of funding fairly without adding to everyone’s costs is tricky, said Judge-executive Gary Moore. “It’s nice to say ‘stop charging Florence and don’t raise taxes,’” Moore said. While no solution was presented, Carroll is happy with the progress. “I am consciously optimistic the county will recognize this is a countywide issue that needs a countywide solution,” Carroll said.

Boone grant draws tea party opposition By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

With “Don’t Tread on Me” flags in tow, tea party members were on hand to oppose a Boone County land acquisition. Boone County was awarded a $400,140 grant from the Federal Highway Administration to buy 85 acres of land with access to Gunpowder Creek from Lee and Claudine Simpson. The grant required a 20 percent match, $100,135, which would be covered by the Boone Conservancy, a group dedicated to acquiring land through private sector donations for the purpose of land protection and park

creation. The Boone County Fiscal Court was asked to sign a memorandum of understanding that would allow the process to move forward, but would still require appraising and surveying the land before the land could be purchased or the grant money accepted. Next year’s Fiscal Court, which will feature two new members, will make the decision on buying the land, said Judge-executive Gary Moore. Before the meeting the Grassroots Tea Party of Boone County sent a letter to county commissioners urging them to vote against signing the memorandum.

The letter suggested the grant should not be accepted “in the name of selfreliance and self-determination for our community.” The grant only served to “feed the growth of government,” the letter said. The money from the grant comes from federal highway funds paid through gasoline taxes, and is set aside in the Transportation Enhancement fund that is given out for land preservation projects, like this, or for development projects, Moore said. “We’re here to insure our citizens get back what they’ve already paid for,” he said. Some believe that not

accepting grants will lead to lower taxes, but that won’t happen, Moore said. “If we don’t get this money, someone else will,” he said. The meeting’s agenda called the project the “Gunpowder Creek Trail System Transportation, Community and System Preservation Grant” – terminology many residents felt sounded like the revival of county’s

greenways plan that was shot down a year ago. “It’s kind of a clue to the future plans,” said Ray Hartke of Florence. Acquiring the land would be only for the purpose of preservation and conservation of the land. The grant includes no funds for building any trail system, Moore said. Hartke wasn’t convinced.

“If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck,” he said. Ultimately, the Fiscal Court voted 3-1 to sign the memorandum. Commissioner Cathy Flaig was the lone dissenter because she felt the project was a return of the trail system. “It’s trails,” Flaig said after the meeting. “Don’t kid yourself. It’s trails coming back.”

Boone Schools won’t allow Gideons on property By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Bibles will be available for Boone County students on the last day of school, but not on school property. The Gideons International filed a request to distribute Bibles on the last day of school in Boone County Schools’ four high schools. The Board of Education voted to send the group permission to set up tables outside of school

property and after school hours where students can pick up a Bible if they’d like, but no one would be allowed to hand out Bibles. That allowance is based on prior legal precedent. The district will send a letter to the Gideons International with that permission. Edwin Kagin, national legal director for American Atheists, was on hand for the meeting, and feels the district understands the rules well.

“They appear to be attempting to follow the law,” said Kagin, a Union resident. Kagin asked the district’s attorney Gerald Dusing if there would be any problem with atheists or those of any other religion having materials in a similar fashion. “Probably not,” Dusing told Kagin. Kagin said he may organize a similar effort with atheist literature on the last day of school to prove the point of fairness.

“It may turn into a non-issue,” Kagin said. While Kagin believed the district was following the law, he didn’t understand why the board had to vote on the issue when they will be telling the Gideons International they can’t set up on school property. “It’s like a merchant asking to have a store across the street – it’s none of (the board’s) business,” Kagin said. The board’s vote was to decide

what response would be sent to the group, said board member Ed Massey. “Our philosophy is all or nothing,” Massey said. If the district allows any group on campuses, they would have to allow anyone. Following legal precedent allows the district to be as fair as possible, he said. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/boonecounty.

Longbranch students spend December serving By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

A new school is setting a tradition of helping the community. Longbranch Elementary has teamed up with Children Inc. for a variety of service learning projects for the month of December. “Every grade level is doing something different,” said Assistant Principal Jeff Rollins. The grades are doing the following: • Kindergarten – Collecting items for the Boone County Animal Shelter. • First Grade – Holiday box projects for Northern Kentucky Health Department for HIV case management clients. • Second grade – Canned food drive for Lifeline Ministries and students are raising money buy doing chores around the house to buy dinners for Fairhaven Rescue Mission. • Third Grade – Collecting money to send to Haiti to provide children

with missing limbs prosthetics. • Fourth Grade -Selling reindeer pops and collecting the money for a Boone County Family Resource Center. • Fifth Grade – Providing needed supplies and possible services to a Northern Kentucky Shelter. “Every student in the building is signed up,” Rollins said. The school wanted to get students involved in serving to encourage them to think of more than presents during the Christmas season, Rollins said. “Sometimes the kids don’t realize it’s about giving back,” he said. Second-graders will be charting how many cans they bring in their hallway, and they’re getting excited about helping, said teacher Kathy Molen. “They understand they’re helping other people who are less fortunate,” Molen said. Rollins hopes this year’s projects lead to a tradition of serving. “We’re probably going to make this a yearly thing,” he said.

Thornwilde school design approved By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Boone County Schools approved the design development drawings for the forthcoming elementary school in the Thornwilde subdivision. The school will be located off Thornwilde Drive near Southcross Drive in the Hebron subdivision. The design of the school will be similar to many of the district’s newer elementary schools like North Pointe and Erpenbeck, said architect Ehmet Hayes. “We tried to fit it into the surrounding characteristics of the neighborhood,” said Superintendent Randy Poe. The brick chosen for the school is similar to what Drees Homes uses for houses in Thornwilde,

Poe said. Because the school will be in the subdivision, the district really wants to make it a part of the community and that can start with the appearance of the building, he said. “It’ll be a true neighborhood school,” Poe said. With the design development drawings approved, they will be sent to the Kentucky Department of Education for its approval. If everything continues along as planned, bids for construction will go out in February 2011, Poe said. Poe hopes for the school to open for the 2013-2014 school year. The Thornwilde school will be the district’s 14th elementary school.

Humanities students visit Modern Day Slavery exhibit Humanities students at National College in Florence recently visited the National Underground Freedom Center to explore the Modern Day Slavery exhibit. Led by instructor Cheryl Heer, students have been reading about issues facing contemporary slavery and various threats of domestic terrorism. The field trip brought this study to life. They viewed a film

and exhibit that offered a comprehensive examination of slavery in the modern world through the life experiences of five individuals who were caught up in one of the five most common forms of exploitation: forced labor, bonded indenture, child slavery, sex trafficking, and domestic servitude. The exhibition explores the causes of slavery, the economic

forces that have contributed to its growth, and the response of government, the justice system, and the general public to this scourge. Students were amazed by the number of abused victims and methods used to enslave and force fear and dominion over another because of someone else’s prejudice. The students enjoyed the informational experience.

Cougars ready for high expectations By James Weber jweber@nky.com

The Conner High School boys basketball team has surpassed expectations at times in the previous seven years of Jim Hicks’ headcoaching tenure. Most notably, the Cougars went on a late run to win 19 games in 200405 and reach the Ninth Region final. Surpassing expectations will be tough this year, as the Cougars were voted the preseason favorite in the Ninth Region by region coaches. While the voting was close, and Conner started the season with a four-point loss to No. 2 Dixie Heights, Hicks knows his task will be different this year. “For years we’ve been the hunter, and now we’re the hunted,” he said. “I have a lot of older guys, and they’re ready for the challenge.” Conner won its next two games over Cooper and Simon Kenton but lost to Boone County 51-30. Conner is 3-2 going into games at Covington Catholic Dec. 14 and at Ryle Dec. 17. The Cougars run behind a veteran lineup. Seniors got most of the playing time Dec. 7 in a 60-42 win over Simon Kenton. Point guard Jacob Flesch, 6-foot-8 center Tyler Hodges, 6-6 forward Clay Robinson, forward Jordan Liechty, wing player Taylor Miller, guard Austin Way and forward Brandon Ernstes are the seniors. “They’ve been around the system and each other long enough,” Hicks said. “They know where each

That is something that is going to help us out all season.” Liechty led the way against Simon with 16 points, including a 12-for12 performance from the free-throw line. Hodges had 14 points, nine rebounds and three blocks. Flesch had six points and eight assists. “We started off slow this season but I think we’ll get better,” Flesch said. “We had a good game on

defense. Were picking up our ‘D,’ and when we do that our offense will come along, too.” Flesch, Hodges and Robinson are AAU teammates as well, and Flesch said that has helped their chemistry. Robinson had nine points, Miller six, and junior forward Craig Richardson five. Hicks was very pleased with the team’s defense against Simon. “I thought we played well,” he said. “Our team

basketball was up there. We shared the ball well, our defense was outstanding, we hit the boards really well.” Hicks said the early loss to Dixie was a good wakeup call. “It was a tough loss to a great team,” he said. “There is a lot of parity out there, and while it’s tough to lose, it was a bit of an eye-opener. We battled back tonight and we want to stay up there.” Hicks prepared a brutal holiday schedule for the Cougars to get them ready. Conner is set to play four games in four days in a Mercer County tournament Dec. 20-23. Then the team will turn around and do the same thing in the Lloyd invitational Dec. 27-30. “That’s the type of thing you do in the postseason,” Hicks said. “You play one

day and you have to turn around and play just as well the next day. Everything I’m doing is to get these kids ready to play in March.” The Cougars have their eyes on achievements rarely seen in the program. Since losing the regional final in 2005, Conner has not won a game in the regional tournament and did not get out of the 33rd District the past two seasons. Conner made the Sweet 16 once in 1993 and tied a school record with 23 wins in 2001, losing in the Ninth Region final. While the expectations are high, the Cougars are ready for them. “It feels good,” Flesch said. “Last year I thought we would have done well and we didn’t, but this year we’re picking it up and doing a lot better.”

Stop forcing your agenda

Will the “filthy rich” have enough to sustain the demand for extended unemployment? The “rich” should have tax breaks also because the money they put back into creating businesses benefits us all with real employment. And what happened to the American Dream? We have been blessed to have the freedom to work hard and think smart to become successful. Many wealthy willingly share and donate to others. They should not be forced to give it all away. Think: It is insanity for “99ers” to demand unemployment for 99 months – over eight years! Who will really pay for extensions of unemployment and uncontrolled government spending? It will be me and you who work hard, maybe struggling on two incomes to buy basics and maybe a little extra. We will all be ground into the dirt if the costs of selfishness continues to rise. Carolyn Prater Florence

It baffles the mind. The first sentence of Stacey Owens’ Dec.2 letter tells of the mindless wondering some people do. She says, “Quite simply, smokers choose to smoke and non-smokers choose not to, so why force either to suffer.” “Choose” and “force” just don’t go hand in hand. If you choose not to smoke and don’t want to eat in a smoking environment, then “choose” not to eat at that establishment. No one is “forcing” you to eat there. If you like that particular restaurant, then “choose” either to put up with the smoke, risk cancer from secondhand smoking but would you please stop “forcing” your agenda on property owners who also have rights? You know exactly what you are walking into, when “choosing” a restaurant or other public venue. There are enough laws – just the lack of enforcement – to protect you from food poisoning, tainted beverages, and other catastrophic conditions but we cannot protect you from yourself.

RECORDER

Family farmers and tenant farming in Boone County When the 20th century arrived and industry increased, modernization took root, changing rural America. Boone County, however, largely remained agricultural. Over time the County has grown, yet remnants of an earlier period remain along less traveled roads. Recently, Joyce McNeely and her mother Sophia balanced nostalgia with reality and provided verbal snapshots of tenant farming in the 1950s. “Most farms were owned by families,” recalled Joyce, “and they counted on male members to do the heavy work.” The Terrell Sisters, Johnnie Mae and Nannie, however, were spinsters who kept the family farm on Woolper Road. Requiring the help of a tenant farmer, the sisters hired Douglas and Sophia McNeely who moved onto the small dairy farm in 1950. Largely self-sufficient, the farm produced hay and corn to feed the cattle and any other livestock. “The Terrell sisters worked with (my parents),” Joyce explained. “They milked cows by hand in the morning before dawn and later around dinner time.” The milk was picked up by Wilbur Shankle before the school bus arrived and was then taken to a local dairy. “You could set your watch by him,” Sophia remembered. “By the time it was picked up,” she added, “the cream appeared, and we made butter from it.” The McNeelys, like the Terrell sisters, lived off the land, raising chickens, steers, and vegetables. Johnnie Mae and Nannie also taught Sophia how to can, allowing the produce to be saved in the underground fruit cellar behind the Terrell farmhouse, where “anything that would keep” was stored.

Mowing and baling hay, milking cows, raising livestock, and harvesting crops, however, were demanding chores. “Times were hard for M. Patricia tenant farmers,” Fox Joyce explained. one) could Community “(No take a day off Recorder because there guest was a constant columnist need to be on the farm. There was no entertainment because you had to be back to milk the cows. So you’d visit with neighbors. Then my brother, sister, and I would play with the children on the other farms. There was more of a neighborly connection then.” Moments occurred, however, that took the edge off the farming demands. “I remember that the three of us would stay at the Terrell place when mom and dad worked. You’d hear the loud ticking of the mantel clock until General Hospital (a popular soap opera). Then the TV was turned on, and they took a break.” Joyce’s eyes came alive as she remembered the “butter and brown sugar sandwiches” they ate while watching the show. Joyce also described a time period where all animals on the farm had a purpose and very little went to waste. “Back then, feed sacks were made from colorful cotton,” she explained. “They always had a print like a flower on them. Quilts and curtains were made from these sacks, and mom even made our dresses from them.” Though times were rough,

Sophia remembered the specialness of Christmas. “We’d cut down a cedar tree,” she stated, “and string popcorn. We would use cotton balls, red berries from the farm, and draw things to put on the tree.” Gifts were few but practical. Yet Sophia always tried to buy the girls “their own dolls.” Unfortunately farming grew to be less profitable as feed became more expensive. The sisters then shifted from keeping dairy cows to raising calves to take to the Walton Stock Yard, but when that became more competitive, their farm like other small farms went out of business. “It was such a pristine place,” Joyce revealed. “The sights, sounds, and smells are gone like so many other farms. I was saddened to see how it had deteriorated, but it’s absolutely wonderful what has been preserved by Mr. Remke.” Today the house and fruit cellar are gone, the barns house bales of hay, and the few outbuildings remain empty. Verbal snapshots give life to a piece of land, and nostalgia allows the storyteller to choose what is said and not said. Joyce and Sophia’s realistic attention to detail, however, encourages the preservation of balanced memories, and in their testimonies, a way of life that rarely exists in today’s fast-paced America. The Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board meets at 5 p.m. the second Thursday of every month. Meetings are open to the public. For more information about historic preservation in Boone County, please contact the Review Board at 859-334-2111 or mbecher@ boonecountyky.org. The Review Board is at www.boonecountyky.org/pc.

Steely left his mark on NKY

PATRICIA A. SCHEYER/CONTRIBUTOR

Hello Frosty

Devin Patton, 3, of Union, is very excited when Frosty the Snowman arrives at Breakfast with Santa, held at Boone Links Clubhouse on Dec. 8. The event was sponsored by Boone County Parks.

It was a great pleasure for my wife, June, and I to have two great and distinguished historians, Dr. Thomas Clark and Dr. Frank Steely, attend our Pioneer Days Picnic at Pioneer Park several years ago. These two Kentucky treasures now have both gone on to heaven, but they have left their mark on Kentucky and Northern Kentucky. When one thinks of reaching for the stars in the field of education, one will rarely find anyone who has given so much in time and effort to promoting history and education as have both Dr. Thomas Clark and his good friend, Dr. Frank Steely. Dr. Steely, the first president of Northern Kentucky University who died Nov. 29, was driven with foresight, vision and thirst for success. He understood both educational systems and political systems. In fact, I would say he knew how to make the perfect soup using “assorted and various” vegetables. He used his board and two, now quite famous lawyers, Phil Taliaferro of the Democrats and John S. Brooking of the Republicans. They would push massive building projects. Dr. Steely was like an orchestra conductor, always knowing when, how and who to call upon to create and achieve the goals related to the development of NKU. He called upon people like Gil

Hammond of the Kentucky Education Association, later associate superintendent of public education, to help with Dr. goals for John Steely’s continuing eduStephenson cation. Dr. Steely Community Recorder was a thinker thought big guest who thoughts. The columnist people of Northern Kentucky have benefited greatly because of who he was and what he achieved; he was always thinking outside the box. His craft of articulation and leadership were essential tools that were required during the early stages of the college’s development. I do not mean to say that Dr. Steely was a perfect man or leader, because that would not be true, and Dr. Steely would be the first to agree! Like everyone, he made mistakes along life’s pathway. He, like everyone, came short of the glory of God. But Dr. Steely was dedicated to the cause, taking very seriously his position as NKU’s first president and what that meant to the Northern Kentucky community and the commonwealth. Dr. Steely was a joy to visit and to talk with. I will always recall the twinkle in his eyes as he enjoyed reminiscing

years gone by. What I saw in Dr. Frank Steely was a man who found his spiritual way late in life. He devoted himself to his loving and dedicated wife, Martha, and family. To Martha Pelfrey, I, along with so many, want to extend my and June’s deepest sympathy to you and to Frank’s family. You have stood by Dr. Steely’s side through his longstanding and difficult health struggles, caring for him and loving him. We thank you for being such an important and integral part of Dr. Steely’s life. I personally want to thank and praise the Lord for sending Dr. Frank Steely to our Northern Kentucky community as our first president of NKU. History is the light to our future, and Dr. Frank Steely, like Dr. Thomas Clark, was a bright light for us to follow along life’s pathway. Thank you, Dr. Steely, for your dedication and loyalty and conviction and direction. You certainly played a major role in making the community of Northern Kentucky what it is today. You will be missed but your legacy, NKU, will be a continual reminder of who you were and how you cared about our community. God’s speed. John Stephenson, of Independence, is former Student Government president at Northern Kentucky Community College of the University of Kentucky and former state superintendent of public instruction.

The real Christmas is glimpsed behind the crib scenes See the creative and beautiful crib scenes! There’s a tranquil Mary and a proud Joseph, a baby in a manger and wide-eyed shepherds. Notice the clean carefully arranged straw, plaintive songs, and admiring kings. The whole atmosphere says, “Stop! Take a breath for a minute and enjoy the beauty, this is the way it was.” In our imagination, we have constructed a scenario that whenever God draws near to us or our world, it will be accompanied by serenity and warm, fuzzy feelings. We almost expect a melodious combination of “Silent Night,” “Hail to the Chief,” and Handel’s “Messiah.” Yes, it’s true that the birth of Jesus Christ was the most stupendous occurrence in the history of the world. And when we try and depict it, it is natural that we do it with extraordinary beauty and creativity. Reality seems too harsh at times. Historically, however, reflection on the reality of God’s Son’s coming will stun us almost beyond belief. Yet the actual facts will teach us an important truth. The first Christmas was

as ordin a r y , messy and full of problems as our lives are at times. ConsidFather Lou er some of Guntzelman the elePerspectives m e n t s involved: • A man, Joseph, distressed about the origin of his wife’s pregnancy and what he would do about it. • A woman, Mary, living an ordinary life and somewhat confused by these strange events, “How can this be for I do not know man?” • A Roman law that made them travel in the last weeks of pregnancy; the physical inconvenience of the trip; the fears of highway robbers. • No place to stay when they got there. • The stable for a birthplace, smells of manure, efforts to keep the baby warm enough and where to find food and medical attention if necessary. If we let ourselves overlook all these aspects we emasculate the Incarnation. We strip it of its utter humanness and meaning. God really did become

In our imagination, we have constructed a scenario that whenever God draws near to us or our world, it will be accompanied by serenity and warm, fuzzy feelings. like us in all things except sin. Christianity believes he became just like you and me, problems, emotions, frustrations and all. The coming of God at the first Christmas was mindboggling. But the circumstances were oh, so earthly and commonplace. Humanly, it was a combination of stress, worry, and uncertainty. There was a human messy-ness to it, the same factors that frequently challenge our faith and shake our lives. It benefits us to remember all this about the coming of God into our lives. Most of the time we are unaware of what is happening within us as we deal with the messy-ness of our lives. We expect, if we believe in God, that life will go easy on us. That there will be a certain softness, predictability and reasonableness. We expect the coming of God in us to be clean and pretty. No labor pains. And it is to happen in a chapel with beautiful organ music in the background.

Actually, when God comes to us it doesn’t always feel enjoyable. They are the times when our selfsufficiency is eroded and our egos broken open and our hearts hurt. The situations are so varied: a woman whose husband suddenly leaves her for another woman; a couple with a sick infant; a single mother; a person struggling with depression; a man whose lost a job after 30 years; a marriage floundering; a woman with a suspicious mammogram; parents worrying about their son or daughter; a death in the family. Even psychologists indicate that it is in the hardest times of our lives that we have the opportunity to grow the most. And in these smelly, difficult, wearisome times, God wants to be born in the hearts of imperfect humans. It is then that our hearts are stretched to be more open to what is beyond this world and God’s love for us. The gifts given to us from difficult times are the gifts exemplified in the way

Time to start baking shortbread cookies for Santa If Santa were to ask me what I would be very grateful to receive, I would tell him a wooden barn and a goat. T h e barn just because I love barns and could use it for storing the tractor and Rita y a r d Heikenfeld e q u i p m e n t , Rita’s kitchen t e a c h i n g classes and letting the little ones play on the hay bundles. The goat I would use for milking, making cheese and soaps. Well, I can tell you that the only barn I’ll ever lay my eyes on is my neighbor’s beautiful old rustic one. And the goat? Not even a possibility at this time. But I won’t let go of those wishes anytime soon. Meanwhile, what I do have to be grateful for are readers like you, who share your life’s experiences, and for family, who tolerate my

impractical desire to live the life of a pioneer farm woman (with indoor plumbing and blow dryer, of course). I was reminded of my many blessings when granddaughter Eva, almost 3, “helped” me make shortbread cookies for giving.

Rita’s no-fail shortbread cutouts

This dough is great for kids since it stays tender no matter how much it is fooled with. Here’s proof: Granddaughter Eva not only rolled the dough with her tiny rolling pin, she smooshed it, squeezed it, patted it and rolled it out, again and again. Every one of her “creations” was just as tender as the other. Let the kids freeform shapes, or use a cookie cutter. Dough freezes well, and so does the baked cookie, sans icing. A nice gift from the kitchen.

2 cups flour 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder

1

⁄4 teaspoon salt 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened 1 ⁄2 cup confectioners’ sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla (or your favorite extract) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside. Cream butter and gradually add sugar. Add vanilla. Blend flour mixture in. Dough will be soft. Roll out on lightly floured surface or between two pieces of plastic wrap to about 1⁄4-inch thick. If dough is too soft to cut out shapes with, put in fridge for about 30 minutes. Cut out and place on sprayed cookie sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes just until edges are golden.

Icing

Whisk together: 1 cup confectioners’ sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2-3 tablespoons water Drizzle icing over cooled cookies, or make a thicker icing with less water, add

food coloring, and spread on cookies. Makes about two dozen.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

To test to see if your baking powder is still active enough to leaven, put a pinch in some warm water. It should fizz right away.

Cinnamon candy apple jelly

This is a pretty red color with a nice cinnamon flavor. Excellent on pancakes and scones. Great gift from the kitchen. 4 cups apple juice, unsweetened 1 box dry pectin 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 ⁄3 cup red-hot candies 5 cups sugar Bring apple juice, pectin, lemon juice and candies to a boil. The candies will dissolve as you make the jelly. Add sugar all at once. Bring back to a hard boil, one that cannot be stirred down. Begin counting one minute from the time it

The Keenagers traveled to the LaComedia Theatre in Springsboro, Ohio, on Thursday. Thirty-four persons enjoyed a delicious luncheon and show, “White Christmas.” On the way home, they had the misfortune to be involved in an accident in Florence. Due to the quick thinking and experience of the driver, Dwayne Brock, the accident was not too serious with only minor injuries such as a broken nose, cuts and bruises. The condition of the bus is not known at this time. The Florence Police and Fire Department did a great job in meeting the emergency needs of the passengers and traffic. Everyone expressed their gratitude to Dwayne and feels the outcome was truly a Christmas blessing.

The Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky sent their new vice president of development, Rick Wurth, to speak to the Florence Rotary Club during their Dec. 6 luncheon. Though Wurth began by cautioning Rotarians that he’d Wurth only been in the position for one month, his enthusiasm and passion for the role were clearly evident. It was appropriate, he pointed out, that he was visiting Florence Rotary on the Feast Day of St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children. The Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky has evolved from simply being an “orphanage” in the past to being a place which could be the first or one of many stops for a resident in need of a more permanent setting. Boys come to the home after being removed from their families at the direction of the state of Kentucky. Many of the children exhibit learning and behavioral disorders arising from earlier neglect or abuse, and all need special attention to see that the past does not have to be their future. Wurth described the view from his office at the Devou Park campus overlooking the many bridges across the Ohio River. He characterized the work of the Children’s Home as a bridge for the residents: A bridge between a troubled past and a promising future, a bridge from despair to hopefulness, and from neglect to preparation for a better life ahead. Operating two campuses – Devou Park in Covington and in Burlington – the home is a community leader providing children and families opportunity and hope for better lives. The vision of CHNK is for every child to be safe, healthy and loved in a supportive, nurturing environment. Last year, the home had an impact on more than 800 children and families throughout Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties and beyond. Providing residential treatment as well as inhome services, children and families remain at the center of focus for the Children’s Home. For more information about the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky visit www.chnk.org or contact Rick Wurth at rwurth@ chnk.org. This article was submitted by Harry Chesnut.
