BOONE COUNTY

The DECADE

in news

Growth, growth and more growth marked the past decade in Boone County, driving the need for several new schools, roads and municipal facilities. The 2000s had its share of scandals too, including the Erpenbeck and Epling controversies and the troublesome start to the Florence Freedom baseball franchise. The national economic decline was felt in Boone County – most sharply at the airport and with the foreclosure rate – but the county is poised to continue its knack for attracting national and international businesses as the economy recovers. Here are the top stories.

Explosive growth

espite two national recessions this decade, Boone County remains one of the fastest growing counties in Kentucky. The county’s population in the 2000 census was 85,991 and it could increase to about 120,000 after the 2010 census. A once rural community is becoming more and more suburban. Unincorporated Boone County and the county’s three cities (Florence, Union and Walton) all had double-digit growth rates from 2000 to 2008, according to census data released this past July. The growth has meant some crowded roads and schools as officials try to keep infrastructure up with the pace of new people moving into the community. A wider and revamped U.S. 42 in the Union area opened this decade.

An improved North Bend Road in Hebron should be completed sometime in the spring. The Mall Road revitalization project is scheduled to begin next year. The two-year project will add sidewalks and green medians to spruce up the city’s retail district. More road work is needed, especially improving Camp Ernst Road at Burlington Pike in Burlington. The proposed South Airfield Road would go along the southern border of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The new road would connect Turfway Road to a realigned Oakbrook Road.

New schools

he natural result of huge population increases is increased enrollment in public schools. Since 2000, Walton-Verona Schools saw a 48 percent increase in enrollment, 478 students. The increase required the opening of Walton-Verona Middle School in 2008. For Boone County Schools, it has been a decade of trying to keep up. Since 2000, enrollment has jumped by more than 6,500 students, a 51 percent increase. To make room for so many extra students, the district had to make additions to several schools and open four new schools, including Cooper High School in 2008. The district’s expansion will continue into the next decade as Longbranch Elementary is scheduled to open in 2010 and land is bought for a new elementary school in the Thornwilde subdivision in Hebron.

The growth has led to district struggles because state funding is largely based on the wealth of a district. Because Boone County is one of Kentucky’s wealthier counties, less funding comes in. For now, districts with explosive growth must figure out how to deal with more students every year while receiving minimal funding.

Economy good and bad

B

oone County was not immune from the global recession that took place in the last part of the decade. The county’s preliminary and unadjusted unemployment rate for October was 9.5 percent. In October 2000, the county’s unadjusted unemployment rate was 2.9 percent. Foreclosures have also affected the county. In 2008, 607 sales were set. This year the number decreased to 547. The vast majority of the sales were residential properties. Despite the recession, more companies are calling Boone County home. Wisconsin-based manufacturer Coating Excellence International is expected to have a new facility in Hebron working by March 1. The United States Playing Card Co. has a new facility on Gap Way in northeastern Boone County. Officials formally welcomed the company in August. Levi Strauss More & Co. officially opened a new of the facility in Sepdecade on tember on Langley Drive in page A4 Hebron.

Boone to build new road By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Boone County plans to build a new small road in the Burlington and Hebron areas. Boone County Engineer Greg Sketch told the Boone County Fiscal Court on Dec. 22 that the road will connect Limaburg Road to North Bend Road at the Gateway Boulevard intersection where it is signalized. He said it is only about a 200-foot piece of pavement that will be put in. Sketch said he hopes to get the project started within the next six months. Commissioner Cathy Flaig said the project will take a lot of the truck traffic so school buses will be able to travel more safely. The county will use a $245,664 federal grant to help pay for the project. A 20 percent local match is required. That means the county will contribute $61,400. If bids for the work are lower, the project will cost less money. The Fiscal Court unanimously approved a resolution about the project.

posing as a law enforcement officer. The Boone County Sheriff’s Department said Javier Londono, 26, Hazelton, Pa., told a sheriff’s deputy he was robbed of $500 while his semi truck was parked on the interstate exit ramp in Verona. Londono said a man pulled up, showed him a badge and then robbed him at gunpoint. But as he was questioned for details, Londono’s story changed until he admitted to making up the story, the sheriff’s department said. He had lost the money gambling at a truck stop instead. Londono was charged with falsely reporting an incident, a class A misdemeanor. He faces a $500 fine and/or up to one year in jail. He was arrested at approximately 7:10 p.m. Dec. 22.

Coating Excellence International, a Wisconsin-based flexible packaging company, plans to open a facility on Aviation Boulevard in Hebron early next year. The company will manufacture bag liners for pet food at the plant. “It’s a good location for us,” Mike Nowak, the company’s president, said. “We have customers all over the Southeast and we can get to almost all of the locations we need to in one day.” Coating Excellence International was awarded a $1 million Kentucky Industrial Development Act (KIDA) incentive earlier this year and was recently offered an economic development bond of $250,000, which would be deducted from the original incentive. The company will provide 71 new jobs to Kentucky residents as part of the incentive deal. Nowak said the company will make an investment of almost $3 million in the 120,000-square-foot facility. If all goes well, the plant will be operational by March 1, 2010. Kentucky News Service

n 2003, Boone County opened a new Justice Center on Rogers Lane in Burlington to house state courts. Two years later, the county opened a new jail on Conrad Lane in Burlington. The Boone County Administration Building underwent some renovations. Florence added a number of recreation facilities during the last 10 years. After opening in 1998, the Florence Government Center property added the Florence Family Aquatic Center in 2003. The center features a 480-foot lazy river, a zero-depth play area and two water slides. The center cost $5 million. Filling out the government complex was the Florence/Boone County Skatepark, a 20,000square-foot concrete area for skateboards, rollerblades and bikes. The $1 million park also opened in 2003. The city also opened the $8 million Champion Window Field in 2004.

ome builder Erpenbeck Co. collapsed this decade with almost $34 million in unpaid loans. More than 12 real estate developments in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati were left. Subcontractors, suppliers, banks and other creditors had unpaid loans and bills. Almost 300 home buyers faced foreclosure. Bill Erpenbeck was sentenced to federal prison for 30 years. Tony Erpenbeck, Bill’s father, was convicted for putting hits out on a federal judge and a retired prosecutor. Tony was serving 70 months in federal prison for tampering with a witness in Bill’s fraud case.

Florence Freedom

F

lorence’s professional baseball team had its inaugural season in 2004. The Frontier League Florence Freedom had troubles early. Shortly after the opening season, the team’s owners, Northern Kentucky Professional Baseball LLC, filed for bankruptcy, facing $9 million in debt. Edgewood businessman Clint Brown purchased the team for $3 million. The team plays in the Florence-owned Champion Window Field, an $8 million, 4,500-seat stadium. In a controversial decision, Florence City Council paid nearly $1 million to returf the stadium in 2009. The turf is expected to allow the stadium to be used for more events throughout the year. In 2009, the stadium hosted about 200 youth baseball games in addition to the Freedom home games.

merica and really the world should know at least something about Rabbit Hash, Ky., after this decade. The tiny unincorporated community in southwestern Boone County was in a documentary and a cable channel show this decade. Both received media attention. In 2004, the documentary film “Rabbit Hash: Center of the Universe” debuted. The cable channel Animal Planet in 2006 aired a special called “Mayor Dog” about canine Mayor Junior Cochran. Actor Ben Stein narrated the program. The International Herald Tribune published an Associated Press photo of Election Day 2008 at the Rabbit Hash General Store. Later that month, a crew for a Japanese television program visited the town.

Long-term leaders

oone County JudgeExecutive Gary Moore and Florence Mayor Diane Whalen have been in office the entire decade. Both were elected in 1998. Moore starts the next decade facing what might be his toughest political challenge yet with Boone County Commissioner Cathy Flaig challenging him for reelection in the 2010 Republican primary. The county has enjoyed considerable growth and prosperity during Moore’s tenure. How much of that is because of him will be a question voters will have to determine in the new year. The county’s 2009 property tax rate for real estate is the lowest among Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties. New businesses have moved into the county. Moore’s tenure hasn’t been without controversy. He supported a ballot ques-

Moore has faced heat for a trails and greenways study the Boone County Planning Commission worked on but then discarded after public opposition. During Whalen’s tenure, Florence welcomed the aquatic center, skate park and the Florence Freedom. Whalen was re-elected in both 2002 and 2006, running technically unopposed in 2006 after her opponent Tom Dusing dropped out of the race a day before the election because being mayor conflicted with his state job. During her time in office, Whalen saw the city’s budget grow from $16.6 million in 2000 to $53.5 million for the 2010 fiscal year. Whalen has already filed More to run for re-election of the in the decade on Novempage A1 ber 2010 election.

Judges to help Brighton Recovery Center By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

A Florence recovery center got some big help from some grateful officials. Members of the Boone and Gallatin counties District and Circuit Court pitched in to support the Brighton Recovery Center. “We have sent ladies here before,” said District Court Judge Charles Moore. Judges have seen the benefits of the center and

While attending a new beginnings ceremony where women complete the center’s program, Moore picked up the center’s wish list and took it back to his colleagues. “We thought we’d give up a week’s lunch money,” Moore said. In the end the judges and clerks raised around $350. “They’re putting their

The state said the work will improve safety and the structural integrity of the roads. “This funding is an example of the cabinet’s commitment to help communities meet their critical transportation demands,” acting Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said in a statement.

The Union City Commission is moving forward in creating an economic development committee to help its planned town center development. The committee would be comprised of six members who are either Union residents or Union business owners. Members must be at least 21 years old. The city commission would appoint the members. A study by Columbus, Ohio-based Pizzuti Solutions about the town center recommended creation of an economic development committee consisting of three people with city, county and business community interests. The study said the committee would oversee the economic development effort. City Commissioner Bob Kelly said developers would have someone on that committee to contact. He said a developer visited the city last month who was looking at the town center. “You try to work through

the economic problems that we’re having which is why we’re still trying to invite developers in to look at the area,” Kelly said. The town center would be located roughly from Whispering Trails in the south to the entrance of the Harmony subdivision in the north. It would stretch from the Ivy Pond subdivision westward to Old Union Road. The ordinance says the committee would assist the city commission with the city’s economic development. No one has been appointed yet. Members would serve for four-year terms. The Union City Commission had a first reading of an ordinance creating the committee at its Dec. 7 meeting. A second reading is scheduled for Jan. 4.

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

SOUTH CAROLINA

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.

Erpenbeck students donate stuffed animals By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Some unusual suspects took a ride in the back of police cruisers. First-graders at Erpenbeck Elementary donated nearly 400 stuffed animals to the Florence Police Department. The stuffed animals will mostly be given to children who need to be comforted at crime scenes. “The children will have something to hold onto, to make them feel better,” said Belinda Taylor, the school’s library and media specialist. Each year, the school does a service project

The response was so overwhelming that teachers stopped counting stuffed animals at 380, Taylor said. Seeing such young students excited about giving is a promising sign for the future, said Florence Police Officer Craig Burch. “The kids love to help others more than themselves,” Burch said. The stuffed animals filled the back seats of three police cruisers. While most will be used at crime scenes, some will be used as giving tree gifts and some will be handed out at the department’s Shop with a Cop, Burch said. “It’s really neat that all these kids thought of us to help,” he said.

District Court Judges Stephen P. Huddleston and Charles T. Moore, who serve Boone and Gallatin counties, recently participated in the 2009 District Judges Fall College at Lake Barkley State Resort Park in Cadiz. The Administrative Office of the Courts offered the college Oct. 18-21 for District Court judges throughout the state. “District judges are dedicated, hard-working individuals,” said Campbell County District Court Judge Karen A. Thomas, who is president of the Kentucky District Judges Association

to get students “in the spirit of giving,” Taylor said. This year students got excited about the project and some students were even giving away their favorite stuffed animals, she said. “They loved it,” Taylor said. The project is designed to help establish a pattern of lifetime giving for students, said teacher Kelly King. “They realize how to really be involved in their community,” King said. The students got more motivated when they understood they were helping kids just like them, she said. “What we’re doing really matters,” King said.

and the chief regional district judge for the Northern Region. “They participate in the District Judges College to stay on the cutting edge of legal issues that affect the people of Kentucky. The fall college covered a variety of important topics for new and seasoned judges.” The judges attended courses about managing extradition proceedings, handling evictions and other landlord/tenant matters and understanding the court’s limited role in postjudgment collection proceedings. Other sessions focused on the admissibility

of evidence at trial, sentencing for enhanceable offenses and court interpreting services. Judges also examined the barriers that domestic violence victims face while seeking safety from their abusers. AOC Director Laurie K. Dudgeon addressed the judges during the college. Other speakers for the sessions included state Sen. Robert Stivers, state Rep. John Tilley, attorney Brian S. Katz of Paducah and law professor Henry “Steve” L. Stephens Jr. of Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law.

Schickel gets tour of Gallatin Steel

State Sen. John Schickel, R-Union, got a close look at one of the area’s largest employers Nov. 23 when he toured the Gallatin Steel plant in Ghent. “I was extremely impressed by everyone I met, from the line employees to the administration,” said Schickel. “They demonstrated the process for me from start to finish, and it takes a real commitment to both safety and quality to do the great job they do every day.” Schickel donned a hard hat, spark jacket, safety goggles and earplugs before touring the facility, where more than 400 employees produce 1.4 million tons of hot band coils of flat-rolled carbon steel each year. The tour included visits to the melt shop, where scrap steel is melted down; the caster, where the molten steel was transformed into a solid; and the rolling mill, where the slabs of steel are

Schickel also met with several employees, discussing with them the work they do and its importance to both the community and the nation. “Gallatin Steel has won numerous awards for safety and quality, and that speaks volumes not only about the company, but also about the people who work here,” Schickel noted. “This company is a great example of

what a top-notch employer can mean to our region, and I’m proud to have them here.” Gallatin Steel is a key player in the domestic steel recycling industry, which recycles more than 80 million tons of steel each year. Nationwide, more than 150,000 Americans work in the steel industry, not including the millions who work in industries from food canning to auto manufacturing that depend on domestic steel production.

Women’s Crisis Center wins grant The Women’s Crisis Center has received a $20,000 grant from the Weathering the Economic Storm Fund, a partnership of 19 funders, managed by The Greater Cincinnati Foundation. Th center will use the grant to help fund operating expenses of its domestic violence shelter in Northern Kentucky. Women’s Crisis Center provides the only domestic violence shelters for victims and their children in 13 Northern Kentucky counties. “This generous gift is already being put to good use at our shelter,” said Martha Malloy, the center’s interim executive director. “We are seeing an influx of clients with greater needs this year. They are staying in our shelters for longer periods than in the past and are having difficulty finding employment and the resources they need to cre-

ate stability for themselves and their children. “Even as the demand for services has increased, our agency’s reduced income has forced us to make cuts in the number of staff providing services,” she added. “It’s been a difficult year. That makes the generosity of the Weathering the Economic Storm Fund that much more significant.” The Weathering the Economic Storm Fund was created this year to help reduce the devastating effects of the economic downturn. In addition to The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, the participating funders include: Butler Foundation, Christ Church Cathedral, Clermont Community Fund of Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Ruth J. and Robert A. Conway Foundation, Thomas J. Emery Memorial, Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Jr./U.S. Bank Founda-

tion, Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati, Andrew Jergens Foundation, Macy’s, Mayerson Foundation, National City Foundation, Northern Kentucky Fund of Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Daniel and Susan Pfau Foundation, Procter & Gamble Fund of Greater Cincinnati Foundation, William Cooper Procter Fund, Scripps Howard Foundation, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Women’s Fund of Greater Cincinnati Foundation and Craig Young Family Foundation. Women’s Crisis Center is a community-based organization that provides services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, rape and human trafficking. The nonprofit agency serves 13 Northern Kentucky counties, operating two live-in shelters, six walk-in crisis centers and two 24-hour crisis hotlines.

Florence Elementary donates about 400 shoes

By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Shoes from Florence are about to go worldwide. Students from Florence Elementary collected close to 400 pairs of shoes, 200 slippers and 200 socks to go to local, national and international charities. The collection came as part of a

third-grade service learning project. “The children did some brainstorming on how we could best help children around the world,” said teacher Amy Lawrence. Students decided they wanted to cover the feet of those less fortunate and did research on charities to receive them. They voted to give shoes to

Soles4souls, a Navaho/Hopi Indian Reservation and the Northern Kentucky Children’s Home. As the program grew, other grades wanted to get involved. In addition to the shoes, socks and slippers, about $250 was donated to help shipping costs. “I’m always very proud of the kids,” Lawrence said. The community of Florence

Elementary is always quick to help, even as the economy made things harder for families, Lawrence said. “One of the things we always teach is that no matter how bad you have it, someone always has it worse,” she said. The big response for the shoe drive didn’t surprise Principal Charlie Walton because that’s just

how the community is. “They understand the importance of helping and sharing what they have,” Walton said. That mentality comes from the top down, he said. “We have a staff that is focused on service,” Walton said.

Future teachers job shadow By Justin B. Duke

Trash for Cash

Teachers and staff from Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Burlington took part in the “Trash For Cash” program offered through Boone County Public Works. The group picked up trash along a 3-mile stretch of road collecting $300 to benefit former principal Ed Colina’s foundation.

A group of Conner High School students just can’t get enough of school. The students are members of the Future Educators Association. The group boasts close to 20 members who are looking toward a career in education. Throughout the school year, members will attend conferences and competitions. Regularly students will visit elementary and middle schools to shadow teachers. “The greatest way to know if you want to be a teacher is to spend some time in the classroom,” said group sponsor Jillian Maher. Actually being in a classroom is a good “reality check” for what teaching is really like, said junior Kayla Schiraldi.

“It’s a great opportunity to find if you want to do it or not,” said club president Amy Shirden. Shadowing lets the group see how teachers deal with students who goof off in class, Shirden said. “I learned how to keep (students) focused,” Schiraldi said. Next year the group may get a boost. Retired teacher Susan Sorrell presented the curriculum for a Principles of Teaching class at Conner that she anticipates will be added to the school’s schedule. Having a group of students who are excited about teaching while they are still in high school is an honor to the teachers at Conner, Maher said. “It says a lot about the quality of the teaching here,” she said. A significant amount of current teachers at Conner are graduates of Conner, Maher said.

Boone offers classes

Babysitting, swing dancing, decorating brownies, and golf lessons are just some of the activities and classes that will be offered in the winter/spring session of the Boone County Community Education program. Registration will be Jan. 12 online at www.boone.kyschools.us, or in person from noon to 6 p.m. at the Boone County Staff Development Center, 99 Center St. Registrations after Jan. 12 will be online or on school days from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Boone County Board of Education office, 8330 U.S. 42. Some other classes will include photography, using Microsoft Word, playing guitar, boating, writing novels, speaking Spanish, selling items on eBay, rug weaving and self defense for women. Where do the ideas for such a mixture of courses come from? "People request classes and we try to fill them with an expert teacher, or people offer to teach them and we give them a try," said program coordinator Laurie Walton. "Most classes are back by popular demand." Some courses are just one day, while others are multiple days. Most require a fee, and some are age-restricted. Space is limited in each class, and class locations will be throughout the county, including several in Boone County schools. Some recreational activities, such as volleyball and dodge ball for those 25 years and older, are also being offered through the program. All courses and activities will take place in January, February, March and April. For more information, call 859282-4628 or 859-282-3314. Kentucky News Service

In collaboration with the Northern Kentucky Health Department and the Department of Catholic Schools, Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Burlington was the Boone County site for a H1N1 flu vaccination clinic on Dec. 1. In five hours approximately 2,000 doses of the vaccine were expected to be administered.

WV Schools signs billboard lease By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Billboards are one step closer to Walton-Verona Schools. The Walton-Verona Schools Board of Education voted Dec. 17 to enter into a lease agreement with Lamar Advertising Co. to install billboards on the district’s athletic complex. The agreement could bring the district as much as $36,000 a year in additional revenues with regular increases over time.

The billboards would be seen from Interstate 71. And the Board of Education would have the final say in the content advertised on the billboards. Before the billboards go up, they have to be approved by the Boone County Planning Commission and the Kentucky Department of Transportation, which the Board of Education is looking to Lamar to help comply with the requests of both entities. “They won’t go out and put money into that endeavor until we

have the lease,” said Superintendent Bill Boyle. The district has had “productive” talks with both the county and state offices, Boyle said. “We’re cautiously optimistic,” he said. The billboards will be built and maintained fully by Lamar, so they will function as a continual revenue stream for the district that requires no money from the district, Boyle said. “I hope the county will understand the financial situation the

school districts are in and support us in as many private financial endeavors as will benefit the schools,” he said. The district’s goal for the billboards is to provide regular funding for Walton-Verona athletics, Boyle said. “We want it to be self-sufficient,” he said. If the billboards are built, Lamar will pay the first year’s money up front.

Sports & recreation

Successful decade for Boone sports Here is a look at some of the top sports events in Boone County in the 2000s.

Minor league baseball

The Florence Freedom became an expansion baseball franchise in the independent Frontier League for the 2003 season. The franchise survived a tumultuous first two years to achieve stability under current owner Clint Brown, although the team has yet to qualify for the league playoffs. Florence hosted the league All-Star Game in 2007 to a sellout crowd. The team played its first season in Hamilton, Ohio, and debuted in the new Champion Window Field in June 2004. The off-field legal and financial problems of owner Chuck Hildebrant overshadowed the on-field struggles that season. The Freedom rebounded in 2005 under Brown and new field manager Jamie Keefe, going 53-42 and barely missing the playoffs.

St. Henry basketball

St. Henry District High School became a smallschool darling on the basketball scene in 2003. The Crusaders won the All “A” Classic state championship in boys’ hoops, defeating Rose Hill Christian and current NBA star O.J. Mayo in the final. The Crusaders then won the postseason title in the Ninth Region and advanced to the Sweet 16. There, they played Mason County and eventual University of Tennessee star Chris Lofton in the first round. St. Henry lost a tense two-point game to Mason, who went on to win the state championship.

How “Sweet 16” it was

The three oldest Boone County school districts also made trips to the Sweet 16 in basketball in the 2000s. Coach Nell Fookes led Boone County to three girls’ state tournaments - 2004, 2006 and 2009. Fookes also climbed the record books this decade. She began the 2009-10 season with 548 career wins, the best in Northern Kentucky history and top-six all-time in the state. In 2008, the Conner girls’ team reached the state tourney for the first time since 1991, compiling a 286 record. In 2002, the Ryle boys’ team made the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history. Justin Doellman, the Ninth Region player of the year that season, went on to become Ryle’s all-time leading scorer and had an outstanding career at Xavier.

Principal Randy Cooper. The Raiders devoted their postseason to their fallen leader and wore armbands with his initials on them in the school’s orange colors. It was the sophomore year for pitcher Kirsten Allen, who rewrote the state record books in her varsity career before going on to the University of Oklahoma, one of the nation’s top Division I college programs. She has the state’s career records for wins (142), shutouts (110), strikeouts (1,865) and no-hitters (41) among others.

Alexander’s NFL history

The Boone County High School legend began the decade by becoming the 19th pick in the 2000 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks. By the 2001 season he was a full-time starter and began one of the best five-year stretches of any NFL running back in history. That culminated in the 2005 season, when he was the NFL Most Valuable Player after rushing for 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns while leading the Seahawks to the first Super Bowl appearance in team history. His Seahawks played the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium in 2003, and Alexander made an appearance at a Boone County football game that weekend. During the decade, Boone County High School renamed one of the entry streets onto campus in his honor. Alexander struggled after his MVP season and is currently out of the league, but has an impressive 9.453 career rushing yards and 100 rushing TDs.

Running dynasty

St. Henry District High School has been synonymous with great track and cross country teams at the Class 1A level. In cross country, the boys’ team has won the last eight state championships and have claimed the individual title in four of those years: Chris Danks (2002), Reggie Bieger (2005) and Gordy Dooley (2006-07). The girls’ team has won six team titles since 2003, and Jenna Siemer claimed the individual crown in 2003 and 2004. The dominance continued in track. St. Henry won five straight team girls’ titles from 2004-08. Gordy Dooley was one of the most decorated runners in Kentucky during the decade. In addition to his cross country titles, he won five distance state titles in track and participated in several title-winning relays. In all, St. Henry won 27 individual event state titles in track and 10 in relays.

Ryle FB hits state finals Ryle’s national splash

Led by the running of Vince Murray and Scott Gray, and a staunch defense, the Ryle football team reached the state football finals for the first time in 2006. The Raiders lost 41-7 to Trinity in the 4A championship. The Raiders became the first team located in the county to reach a state final since Boone County in 1994. The same year, Covington Catholic, with several Boone residents on its roster, won the Class 3A state championship, its only title in the decade. Other local schools had a strong decade on the gridiron. The Boone County Rebels had a winning record every year until 2009, compiling a 74-47 overall record and reaching the state semifinals in 2004 and 2007. Conner had an up-anddown decade, but the upswing was memorable, as the Cougars scored perfect 10-0 regular seasons in 2003 and 2004.

Lane’s End Stakes

Turfway Park’s biggest stakes race was renamed in 2002 after sponsor Lane’s End and continued to be one of the major prep races for the Kentucky Derby. Among notable horses in the Lane’s End this decade, Birdstone won the 2004 Belmont Stakes after finishing fifth at Turfway. Hard Spun, the 2007 Lane’s End winner, was fourth or better in all three Triple Crown races. In 2006, Turfway Park became one of the first racetracks to install artificial Polytrack surface.

Ryle grapples to top

The Ryle Raiders were one of the state’s top wrestling programs during the decade. The Raiders were team state runner-up in 2005 and 2008, and enters the new decade with a shot at the 2010 state title. Ryle claimed 10 individual state championships in the 2000’s, including Jake Bradford (2009), Bryan Peace (2007-08), Mason Reid (2007-08), Kyle Ruschell (2004-05), Rob Aylor (2005), Derrick Fassbender (2003) and Jordan Blackmore (2001).

The small-school Bearcats had several athletic milestones during the decade. A strong track and cross country program produced several of them, as the Bearcats won the girls’ Class 1A team state championship in 2006, the only team state title in any sport in school history. Gretchen Lussi won the Class 1A girls’ 300 hurdles in 2007, and Trevin Petersen won the boys’ individual state cross country title in 2009. The basketball teams galvanized the community this decade, as the girls’ basketball squad reached the semifinals of the All “A” Classic state tournament in 2000, and the boys’ team did the same in 2004. The boys’ team ended its season that year with a hardfought 10-point loss to powerhouse Scott County in the 32nd District Tournament. By the end of the decade, the growth in southern Boone County allowed the school to build a new athletic complex and add football and wrestling.

Northern Kentucky teams had not been much of a factor in the state fastpitch softball tournament until the Ryle Raiders broke through to win the state title in 2006. It was the first team state championship in school history, and came just two weeks after the death of

Ryle’s Cory Chitwood concluded one of the best swimming careers of any Northern Kentucky swimmer in 2007. He finished with three event state titles and won the world championship in the 200 backstroke in a major international meet in Brazil. Chitwood, now at the University of Arizona, qualified for five events in the 2008 Olympic Trials and could contend for Olympic berths in 2012. Boone County celebrated two diving state champions this decade as well. Conner’s McKenzie Long won the girls’ diving title in 2004 before going on to dive for the University of Louisville. St. Henry’s Mitch Kellerman won the boys’ title in 2006 and competes at Eastern Michigan.

Here is a full listing of Boone County’s individual state track titles in the 2000s. St. Henry and Walton-Verona are Class 1A, the others 3A.

Rand Paul wants to be our senator. Why should we elect him? Rand Paul has demonstrated his failure in making good choices. His choice for a campaign spokesperson, Chris Hightower, showed his true colors in posting racial comments on his MySpace Web site page. If Rand Paul can’t be trusted to choose better than someone promoting racist views

for a campaign spokesperson, than how can he be trusted to make good decisions for Kentucky? That’s why I support Trey Grayson for Senate. He makes the right choices and he is the right choice for Kentucky. Keith Sherman Breckenridge Lane Hebron

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Do the recent developments concerning Tiger Wood, and the death of Chris Henry, change the way you look at professional athletes? “Let’s not forget that professional athletes are people just like everyone else. Even with all of their fame and fortune they have their struggles with demons, perhaps even more so. Here were two men who had so much talent, it is so sad that they both met their demise in the manner that they have. At the end of the day we all will leave this world in the same way by taking our last breath, let’s hope that we have made a positive impact on the world left behind. Both of these men have children who are suffering greatly, I hope and pray that they can find relief, know they have been loved by their fathers and move beyond all the sadness they are now experiencing.” S.W. “Professional sports are overrated and the players overpaid. Thankfully, I don’t do sports! If athletes were paid on a “performance-based” method many would not have enough money to feed their family or their drug habits. I used to enjoy watching Tiger Woods play golf on TV occasional-

I hope Elin takes him to the cleaners and enjoys her new home in Sweden.” Florence “No, not at all. I don’t hold any of them up to any standards. Most of them are a bunch of overpaid, whiney babies! Too bad about Chris as it did look as if he was trying to get his act together.” Duke “Tiger Wood has disappointed many people who viewed him as a role model. Chris Henry’s death is so very sad since it brought an early final chapter to a life that had hope for a happier ending. It is disturbing to see so many highprofile athletes who fail at the important aspects of life. Talent is a gift from God.” G.G.

General Assembly at a glance As public servants, legislators confront many issues, potentially impacting citizens across the Commonwealth. We convene next Tuesday, facing unprecedented and multifaceted challenges. Given the lagging economy and Kentucky’s upcoming fiscal year’s economic and revenue forecast, the 2010-2012 Biennial Budget will be the most prominent and complex challenge before the 2010 General Assembly. Many Kentuckians are out of work and services are strained. Kentucky has borrowed over $450 million dollars from the “federal unemployment account” to meet benefit payments to Kentucky’s unemployed workers. Projections are that businesses and industries will continue to be exceedingly cautious about expanding production and employment. Due to the depth and duration of the current national recession, an immediate and robust recovery appears unlikely. I have met with many of you and I know that Kentucky families, and businesses are struggling. I remain confident our job market and economy will turn around, but it will be slower than many of us would hope. Frankfort’s current economic and budgetary challenge directs us to carefully examine and surgically refine spending practices across state government to ensure Kentucky citizens and taxpayers the best fiscal practices. I remain committed to work diligently on the matters that

impact your lives everyday and I know that educating Boone County’s children is a No. 1 priority. Even during the current economic State Rep. challenges we Addia must strive to Wuchner avoid deeper cuts in education Community and continue to Recorder protect base guest SEEK funding. Last session columnist we passed legislation I had worked on that can benefits schools like Boone County and Walton Verona as it allows a midyear recalculation for growth districts and addresses some of the SEEK inequities that have unfairly penalized our school districts for years. Yet, as long as we have Boone County children attending class in trailers, our work is far from over. I believe education, public protection and vital services in the commonwealth will remain at risk, until we systemically prioritize and streamline state spending, focus on transparency across state government and minimize topheavy government bureaucracy. We must engage public policies that are outcomes driven and demonstrate best practices. There are some discussions on addressing Kentucky’s tax code which puts a tremendous strain on our citizens and businesses. To improve the environment for job

I believe education, public protection and vital services in the commonwealth will remain at risk, until we systemically prioritize and streamline state spending. growth we need to explore restructuring our tax laws. Reform of tax codes could help stimulate the economy while developing a stable revenue source without reaching further into the pockets of our citizens. The following are just a few pieces of legislation that I am sponsoring this session. Bill Request 62: Education – The Early Assessment and Reading Interventions Act. BR 61: Healthy Kids Act 2010 – Physical activity for elementary school children. BR 63: Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma (Shaken Baby Syndrome) – A Comprehensive State Awareness and Prevention Initiative. BR 473: Prison Industries – Put them to work; cost sharing and inmate recidivism. This will be a challenging session with many uncertainties. As your voice in Frankfort, you may be assured of my focus and efforts on behalf of you, your families and Kentucky businesses. Please do not hesitate to contact me in Frankfort at 502-564-8100 or addia.wuchner@lrc.ky.gov. State Rep. Addia Wuchner, R-Florence represents the 66th District in the Kentucky House of Representatives.

Staying safe this winter Every year more than 3,000 people die in residential structure fires. A majority of these homes did not have a working smoke alarms and that is why the United States Fire Administration has initiated the “Install. Inspect. Protect” Campaign. The Hebron Fire Protection District and fire departments across the Tristate and the country are stepping up their efforts to educate the community about the dangers of not having a working smoke alarm in their homes. This is a collaborative effort to reduce fire deaths and injuries across the nation by urging residents to install smoke alarms in their homes and inspect and maintain them on a regular basis. Last year between Thanksgiving and New Years, a span of less the 40 days, the Tristate was inundated with an unusually high number of residential fires. Many of these involved fire fatalities of both children and adults, and have various causes of origin. Working smoke alarms and sprinklers save lives. While the message is simple, statistics show that Americans need to pay more attention to not only installing, but maintaining the smoke alarms in their homes. A smoke alarm with a dead or missing battery is the same as no smoke alarm at all. Research has proven that the following fire safety practices work: 1. Installing and maintaining smoke alarms and residential fire sprinklers; 2. Practicing fire escape plans; and, 3. Performing a home safety walk-through to remove fire hazards from homes. A working smoke alarm can help residents escape a deadly

home or apartment fire. It can also help save the lives of firefighters who would otherwise have to risk their lives by searching a burning Mike home for resiFronimos dents. A working Community smoke alarm Recorder c o n t i n u o u s l y guest scans the air for columnist smoke, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It never sleeps. According to the National Fire Protection Association, in 20032006, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. No smoke alarms were present in 40 percent of the home fire deaths and in 23 percent of the home fire deaths, smoke alarms were present, but did not sound. Installing and maintaining residential fire sprinklers is also important to helping save lives. When both smoke alarms and fire sprinklers are present in a home, the risk of dying in a fire is reduced by 82 percent, when compared to a residence without either. While candles, Christmas trees, and other decorations are part of the holiday spirit, they can pose fire and poisoning hazards, especially to curious children. Safe Kids USA, the United States Fire Administration and fire departments across the Tristate remind parents and caregivers to take a few precautions when decorating during the holiday season but throughout the winter. The most dangerous time of the

The most dangerous time of the year for injuries and deaths from fire is during the winter. Each year, approximately 450 children ages 14 and under die in residential fires; children under the age of 5 are at the greatest risk. year for injuries and deaths from fire is during the winter. Each year, approximately 450 children ages 14 and under die in residential fires; children under the age of 5 are at the greatest risk. In 2005, candles started an estimated 15,600 home fires in the United States, and the top four days for candle fires are around Christmas and New Year's, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Fireplaces, chimneys, and wood (or pellet) stoves are another area of particular concern when it comes to fire safety. They can give us much comfort and pleasure, and yet, if they're used improperly or not maintained, they are fire safety hazards, and can easily lead to tragedy. Because kerosene heaters are usually unvented, all combustion products are released into the indoor air including carbon monoxide. An improperly adjusted, fueled, or poorly maintained kerosene heater will release more pollutants. Use of a kerosene heater in a poorly ventilated home, especially in modern well insulated ones, could pose a health risk. Most manufacturers suggest that a window be left cracked open.

Life

As time passes, we make or break ourselves Time is on our minds as we move from one year to the next. If we asked a fish “What is water?” it might say, “I don’t know,” even though it lives in it. If we are asked our insights into time (in which we live), how lucidly and credibly could we talk about it? Time is the fleeting succession of nows. It’s the succession of nows that are measured in seconds, hours, days and years that are given us between our birth and death. There is a lot supposed to be going on during this time, a lot of growth and development. Growth means to move from potentiality to actuality just as an acorn gradually grows and becomes an oak tree. Time allows a chosen transition and countless opportunities in order to become all we were made to be. Time is expected to be creative. We might like to ask our Creator why we were made similar to acorns needing to grow into trees? Why didn’t God make us trees right away? Why didn’t he make

us in our completed, f u l l y g r o w n state? W h y g o through puzFather Lou this zling and Guntzelman laborious Perspectives g r o w t h process that is filled with risks and difficult challenges? Why go the long route? Why didn’t God create us at point Z instead of at point A? If God created us at point Z instead of point A we would not be human beings. We would be something else. As humans we are equipped with intellects and wills. We can gradually come to know, think, weigh and choose. Because of this we can join God in our creation – or opt out. We can open ourselves to his formative grace or say “No, thanks.” Human beings are those who, as Sartre put it, make themselves, create themselves, decide themselves,

Why didn’t God create us at point Z instead of at point A? If God created us at point Z instead of point A we would not be human beings. We would be something else. choose themselves. Time is that place where this choosing takes place over and over again. The flow of time presents billions of situations calling for our choices, myriads of opportunities to transcend our previous lesser selves, to grow more or regress. God is, God does not become. God is the same through all eternity. We are the ones called to become and move from less complete to more whole (holy). Time in itself is not automatically creative so that all we have to do is sit and wait. “The individuality of the person,” writes James Hillman, “becomes a shifting kaleidoscope, each of us becoming more unique and complex; it is the conclusion from research that ‘with increasing age there is increasing variation among individuals.’” A new year reminds us of time and urges us to take stock and see what we are

becoming by living in time. To ask, “Where are my choices taking me; what kind of person am I making of myself?” “Am I more concerned about pleasure or what I am collecting outside myself than what I am becoming within myself?” “Am I growing from a selfcentered ego toward a larger concern for others?” “How would I compare my personal integrity this new year to what I was 10 years ago?” As the Rev. William Sloane Coffin put it: “Time in this world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Roast until thickest part registers about 125 degrees for medium rare to medium, about 40 minutes or so. Let set 10 minutes to allow juices to redistribute evenly. Internal temperature will rise during this stage. If you want, you can cool it to room temperature, then refrigerate it, tightly wrapped.

Ann Nader’s Mishi Maloof (Cabbage Rolls)

For the young couple who sampled these at a Mediterranean restaurant. My cousin, Danny Nader, and his wife, Ann, are the kind of folks who think of everybody but themselves, helping out the less fortunate all year long. Danny has been under the weather but I know if Ann fixes cabbage rolls, his appetite will perk up. She makes them a bit different than my mom. Our recipe uses tomato paste and garlic and no allspice.

2 tbsp. l e m o n juice 51⁄2 oz. tomato sauce

Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

Core cabbage. Remove damaged outer leaves and set aside. Submerge whole cabbage into salted, boiling water. As water boils, the cabbage leaves will begin to loosen. Gently loosen them further when tender and limp. Remove leaves. When all are out of water and have cooled a bit, cut out center vein so they will be easier to roll up. Take the reserved big outer leaves and lay them on bottom of pot. This insulation will prevent the cabbage rolls from burning on the bottom when cooked. Use goodlooking leaves to make rolls. Mix rice, meat and spices. Put approximately one tablespoon filling in center of leaf. Starting at what was the stem-end, fold the sides in and roll up the cabbage tightly to enclose the filling. Place side by side in rows, seam-side down, criss-crossing as you do each layer. Place an inverted plate on top to hold them in place as they cook. Add tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes (if desired), salt and pepper and enough water to cover the cabbage rolls. You can season the water with one clove garlic, juice of two lemons and crushed, dried mint leaves. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce to low, cook for approximately 30 minutes.

1 medium cabbage 1 cup rice 1 lb. ground beef or lamb 2 tsp. salt 1 ⁄2 tsp. pepper 1 ⁄2 tsp. allspice

Girl Scout leaders needed In 2009, Girl Scouts in Central, Eastern and Northern Kentucky volunteered 35,000 hours on service projects supporting troops with cards and cookies, conducting food and coat drives, visiting nursing homes and volunteering at animal shelters. Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council serves more than 25,000 girls. More than 600 girls from Northern Kentucky are on a waiting list to become Girl Scouts. The only way to serve these girls is to find enough volunteer leaders. Girl Scout leaders work with girls between 5-17 years old. Leaders create a rewarding experience for girls, laying the groundwork and foundation for girls to become the change-makers of the future. The only requirements to be a Girl Scout leader is the ability to pass a background check and the desire to have fun and make a difference in the lives of others. The total time requirement is about six to eight hours a month. Contact Ruby Webster at 342-6263 or rwebster@gswrc.org.

Four New Year’s resolutions for gardeners to make in 2010 Question: I am new at gardening and having my own yard, flowers and landscape to take care of. What are some good gardening basics or some general rules or principles of gardening, so I don’t make the common mistakes most gardening rookies make when I start doing all this next spring? Answer: Instead of just giving you a list of dos and don’ts or giving you a page of general suggestions, let’s have some fun and make some “Gardeners’ New Year’s Resolutions” that you, along with experienced gardeners, can try to abide

by in 2010. 1. I resolve to always do a soil test before adding lime, wood ashes or fertilizer to my soil or my compost pile. Why? Because soil testing is a free service offered by your local Northern Kentucky County Extension Service, and that’s the only way to know if you need to change the pH or nutrient level of your soil. Most of the garden, yard and landscape soils coming in to our office are clay-based, but their pH ranges from 4.0 to 8.3, and many don’t even need any added phosphorus or potassium, and most do not need

any lime. Too much lime raises the pH so high that certain nutrients become unavailable to the plants. Too much fertilizer also causes nutrient imbalances, can burn plants, and may contribute to groundwater contamination. 2. I resolve not to water plants in the evening or early night. Why? Because prolonged wet foliage and fruit through the night is probably the major cause of most fungal and bacterial diseases of plants. The disease-causing organism requires a certain number of consecutive hours of leaf wetness to be able to

COMMISSIONER’S SALE BOONE CIRCUIT COURT, CASE NO. 09-CI-1596 FIFTH THIRD MORTGAGE COMPANY

multiply and penetrate the surface of the plant. Once inside, infection is nearly impossible to stop, even with fungicides. Most plant diseases could be prevented or greatly reduced if plants were not wet at night. Just do your watering early enough in the day so that your lawn, flowers, landscape or garden crops are dry on top before nightfall. 3. I resolve not to “top my trees” or leave branch stubs when I prune my trees. Topping is a very harmful practice that destroys trees. Anyone who says they want to “top your trees” should not be hired.

Instead, consult our list of local certified arborists. When pruning your own trees, be sure to always cut a branch back to the main trunk, or to a side branch that’s at least one-third the diameter of the remaining branch it attaches to, so that it will be able to support and keep alive the entire branch. Only leave the “branch collar” (the swelling at the base of where the branch attaches to the trunk or larger branch), but do not leave even 1 inch more than that, since that would be a “branch stub”, which would soon die back and begin to rot out the main branch or

trunk it attaches to. 4. I resolve not to ever have more than a Mike Klahr total of 3 Community inches of Recorder m u l c h guest around trees columnist and shrubs, and I will never let the mulch touch the trunk of the tree. Why? Deep mulching leads to oxygendeprived roots, and trunk contact leads to trunk decay, girdling roots, and bark damage by voles and field mice. Mike Klahr is the Boone County Extension Agent for Horticulture.

Concept of date night worth exploring Not everyone can fly to Paris for dinner on date night. As romantic as it sounds, the truth is a couple doesn’t have to spend a fortune to keep the spark glowing in a solid relationship. In fact, they don’t have to leave the comfort of home. The concept of date night for married couples has been around for many years. It is a tradition worth including in your relationship and can cost as little as

a smile and a commitment of time. Setting aside time to spend together, without interruptions involving life’s daily concerns, gives couples the chance to reconnect and validate all the reasons that brought them together in the first place. Dating before marriage includes simple considerations like dressing to impress, focusing all your attention on your partner and showing them they are the most important person

in your life. These same considerations can be included in dates between married couples to bring a positive boost to relationships. Successful partnerships include shared responsibilities and willingness to compromise. Both members can and should contribute to date night by taking turns planning activities and suggesting ideas. If you have children, get them into bed early. This allows for time to touch
