Leaders talk goals for 2013 School, government officials share plans

From city and county leaders to school administrators, officials throughout Campbell County are looking ahead to 2013. Here is what some local leaders have planned for the upcoming year:

STEVE PENDERY Campbell County Judge-executive “We want to continue our economic recovery in the county and continue our efficiency moves at the county government. And part of that is going to require us to come up with a new means to finance our emergency response system; our 911 system... At the legislature, a couple of important things will Pendery be a change in the law that allows emergency management offices to merge. That’s illegal right now. And there’s a little pension issue that makes it difficult for local government agencies to merge. And overall to preserve the future for the local and state government the financial future you’ve got to fix the pension system.”

GLEN A. MILLER Campbell County Schools Superintendent “Our goals for the Campbell County School District in 2013 are to ensure students are ready for college, career and life; open the new Campbell County Area Technology Center and High School stadium. Providing our students with a high quality inMiller struction and a wide variety of exemplary extra-curricular offerings, Campbell County students will be fully prepared for the future and our community will be best positioned to compete successfully in 2013 and beyond.”

Campbell County looks ahead to 2013 Heroin, pensions and library are top issues

By Chris Mayhew and Amanda Joering,

In a world full of unknowns, there are debates, legislative battles, decisions and development plans already expected to happen in Campbell County in 2013. Campbell County Public Library Board of Trustees President Rebecca Kelm said in November that a decision and further discussion on plans to build a fourth library in southern end of the county were not likely until early 2013. JC Morgan, the library’s director, said during a Dec. 18 meeting of the library board that there was nothing to talk about on the South Branch plans. Board member and capital campaign committee co-chair Paul Johnson said outreach to potential donors to raise money for the library are ongoing.

Pensions/911 dispatch

Fixing the state pension system will continue to be debated in the state legislature and is important because it involves the financial future of every local government in Kentucky, said Campbell County

Judge-executive Steve Pendery. Pendery said he has a lengthy list of items he wants to see accomplished or push for in this year’s legislature including pursuing giving local areas the option of having their own sales tax. “People would vote on whether they want a sales tax to support local projects,” he said. Pendery said the sales tax idea is not tied to the need for a new Brent Spence Bridge carrying the interstate over the Ohio River. “That’s actually a longer conversation,” he said. The 911dispatching service in the county is also expected to be discussed since the dispatch center is funded by fees on phone land lines, and not cell phones, he said. “We’ve been left behind in two ways,” Pendery said. “You know we need to upgrade the system, but we also have to upgrade the way we pay for it.”

Battling heroin

An issue that became well-known in 2012 that is carrying on into 2013 is the region’s heroin epidemic, which is bringing law enforcement agencies and medical professionals together in an effort to address the problem. See 2013, Page A2

» For Campbell County Schools, the start of a new football season in 2013 is scheduled to begin on a new turf field already installed as part of a construction project at the district’s high school. The construction project, nearing completion, includes a full stadium and athletics complex and a new technical school on the high school campus south of Alexandria. » The business accelerator program Uptech, created in 2011 in a partnership including Campbell County and Northern Kentucky University will continue, according to Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery. UpTech attracted eight technology companies with the offer of $100,000 in start-up money and the ability to work with NKU's College of Informatics faculty, staff and students. “UpTech is a very good example of the things we are trying to do to create jobs and continue the economic recovery of the county and all of Northern Kentucky,” Pendery said. » At A.J. Jolly Park, a new volunteer group dedicated to the county park is planning to have a 50th anniversary celebration and fundraiser in August. » In Alexandria, work on the 916-unit residential development Arcadia is starting with the building of roadway already in progress. The city approved the building of 224 condominiums and 51 single family homes in 2012 at the joint project of Fisher Homes and Drees Co.

To combat the heroin epidemic, the county has been working behind the scenes on a partnership with law enforcement and other officials, Pendery said. An announcement of an idea formed from that partnership is planned prior to the state legislature convening Jan. 8, he said. “We’re going to try to get a change made in the law to make enforcement a little easier,” Pendery said. Bellevue Police Chief Wayne Turner said the heroin epidemic is a problem this isn’t going to just go away. In the new year, Turner said he hopes to see even more partnerships throughout the area between police, community members, the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force and the Northern Kentucky Heroin Impact Committee to address the heroin issue. “We need to continue the successes we’ve had and learn from our failures,” Turner said. “We really need to focus our efforts to stop this epidemic.” Turner said helping addicts get treatment and stopping heroin suppliers will play a big part in addressing this issue.

opments, 2013 is looking like a big year for the City of Newport. “2012 was a great year for our city,” said City Manager Thomas Fromme. “But, 2013 is definitely going to be a big year for us.” In the upcoming year, Fromme said residents can expect to see more development in the Newport Pavilion, the ground-breaking of a new high-end residential building at the corner of Fifth and Saratoga streets, and the opening of the Nth Degree Distillery by the Party Source. In Fort Thomas, City Administrator Donald Martin said he expects to see progress with the Veterans Administration (VA) homes in Tower Park. For several years the future of the vacant former military homes, which due to a federal bill can only be bought by the city, has been up in the air. In mid-2012, the city put the Alexander Circle homes out to bid with a minimum price of $1,595,000 to cover the cost to the city to purchase the homes. That minimum price coupled with the additional costs developers would incur to restore the properties in accordance with historic preservation requirements led to the city receiving no bids. Since then, the city has been working with the VA to develop an agreement that would make it more feasible for developers to take on the project. Martin said the city is currently waiting for the VA to finalize their review of the agreement, which will be submitted to the city to go over any changes. Once an agreement is reached, the project will once again go to bid and the city can move forward with the sale, Martin said.

Group empowers teens to make difference By Libby Cunningham

FLORENCE — With a series of claps Tim Hanner, former superintendent of Kenton County Schools, calls the meeting to order. He’s at the front of a classroom at Gateway Community and Technical College in Florence that’s filled with student leaders from across Northern Kentucky. They’re a part of the Northern Kentucky Youth Advisory Board. “It’s about empowering kids,” Hanner said. “We are going to the schools and working with administrators to find a group of student leaders to empower them to make a difference in their schools.” Student leaders from over 25 Northern Kentucky high schools, about 100 in total, are part of the organization. It’s been around for about a year. “I want them to know what high school students are capable of,” Hanner said, explaining that the Dec. 12 meeting bridges the gap between ideas and action. Teens at the December meeting will be making waves in the Tristate by participating in the philanthropic Magnified Giving,

which gives local nonprofits an opportunity for grant money. Groups choosing possible recipients focused on organizations

that help with hunger, homelessness and children’s issues in Greater Cincinnati. “It’s all about researching and

learning about the nonprofit,” said Larry Tibbs, a retired Dixie Heights High School teacher, adding this could include site vis-

its. “It’s forcing the kids to make those decisions.” After researching nonprofit groups students will whittle down a list of those they want to ask to apply for the grant. The groups will be contacted and go through a process of convincing students why they should receive the funds. Five hundred dollars is up for grabs through Magnified Giving, but students can give more. The organization will match up to $150 of extra funds if they can be raised, Tibbs said. Using laptops, a computer lab and smartphones teens at the meeting started to research possible recipients. “I chose hunger because I feel like that is a very basic issue,” Amy Kerdolff said. “If you’re hungry that affects everything in your life.” Kerdolff, a student at Dixie Heights High School, said she’s happy to be a part of the Northern Kentucky Youth Advisory Board. “I feel like it gives us an opportunity to see what other teens are doing,” she said. “It gives teens an opportunity to do something instead of relying on adults.” Visit for more community news

HMS Peak program seeks volunteers By Amanda Joering

FORT THOMAS — Highlands Middle School is looking to the community to help some of the school’s struggling students. The school is currently needs volunteers to participate in the Peak program, meant to increase motivation and improve math and reading skills for students working below their grade level. The program began last year after parent Kelly Kelso participated in a fellowship with the Commonwealth Institute of Parent Leadership through the Prichard Committee. In an effort to get more involved with the school, Kelso worked with teachers and administrators to design the program. “The goal is to help students who need an extra boost,” Kelso said. Martha Coffman, one of the teachers involved in the program, said it’s designed to address students’ needs on an individual basis by bringing volunteers from the community in to work one-on-one with each student. Coffman said the volunteers come in once a week for 20-45 minutes and work with their student. “Just having someone being there for them helps the students,” Coffman said. “The students really work harder and faster when the volunteers are here.” Currently, about 85 students participate in the program, Coffman said, but more volunteers are needed. Volunteers must be 18 or older, submit to a background check and participate in a short training. Having the program provides a lot of support for teachers, Coffman said. Kelso said the program has been even more successful than she anticipated. “The adults enjoy being in the program, the students are learning and the teachers appreciate the extra help,” Kelso said. “This program is going great from all sides.” Volunteers can come in to work with students Monday through Friday during first period, lunch or sixth period. For more information about the program or to volunteer, call 441-5222.

The Year in Quotes By James Weber

Here are the most memorable quotes from Campbell County players and coaches in 2012: “In duals, the key is always the pins. You have to have the pins and you cannot get pinned. If you can pull off a pin or a major, you’re getting an edge.” Campbell County wrestling coach Mike Bankemper after winning the NKAC title. “We’ve played some big games but being here four out of five years, it’s in their culture. They have that culture of winning and that’s what we’re trying to grow at Brossart. We’re going to get that experience and continue to grow.” Brossart girls basketball coach Josh Feldmann after the All “A” state tournament. “Nobody gave us any credit at the beginning of the year... Nobody was picking us to do anything. Nobody thought we would win the All ‘A’ region, and we come down here and make it all the way to the state finals.” NCC girls basketball coach Ron Dawn on being All “A” state runner-up. “It’s very emotional. Both teams played hard and we expected a low-scoring game. It’s a good rivalry and a lot of fun.” NCC guard Michael Bueter on beating Brossart in boys basketball last season. “It’s pretty cool to represent the school. I get on the floor after the race and they say ‘Who is that guy.’” Brossart swimmer Jacob Mader, the first swimmer in school history. “You have to be mentally tough to go out there and wrestle every day. I wouldn’t


be the same guy without it. It taught me a lot.” Campbell County wrester Garth Yenter, who was an undefeated state champion. “We haven’t done it in a long time, and for me to come home where I played and get a district title, it is really special to me and something I will never forget.” Campbell County boys basketball coach Aric Russell on winning the 37th District. “They really, really wanted this and you can see they’ve got that burning desire to get in the gym and start working towards next year and get back to this point.” Campbell County girls basketball coach Mike Murray after his Camels lost in the 10th Region final. “You’re really nervous. It makes me do a lot better. If I’m not nervous before a race, I’m going to be terrible.” NewCath 2012 graduate Aubrey Muench on running the anchor leg in track relays. “We didn’t want to look at it anymore. Highlands beat us in the district and that brought a ball of fire burning down there (pointing to his chest) and got us ready to play. That was a huge motivating factor. They’re our rivals and we really wanted to beat them.” NewCath pitcher Josh Cain after NCC’s Ninth Region final win over Highlands, talking about losing in the district final to Highlands. “To put a freshman out there for the regional championship game, we’re lucky the first five balls weren’t 35 feet away. He’s done well for us all year and pitched in big situations. He’s tough to rattle, which is a good sign.”

Highlands baseball coach Jeremy Baioni on Mitchell Jones, the starting pitcher in the Ninth Region final. “That was fun. I feel bad for scoring on him but I got to do what I got to do. Those are always rough games.” Brossart soccer player Jordan Frommeyer on playing against his twin brother, Josh, the goalie for Campbell County. “It’s our objective to play here as many times as we can. We had great guys who came before us and allowed us to have the program that we have.” Campbell County quarterback Tyler Durham on the team’s last regular season game on its home field, which will give way to Campbell’s new on-campus football stadium in 2013. “They’re big huge guys. They just drill people. And the holes, you can drive a car through them every time. They make it easier than it normally should be.” Highlands running back Colin Seidl. “The reason we win, our guys are just men you can count on. You just know they are going to do their job. They are still in high school, but really they are like 28year-old men, ready to raise a family, do a job, do whatever you need men to do.” Highlands football coach Dale Mueller. “It’s amazing. We never gave up. Never. To have a dream like that and having it come true, it’s amazing...Don’t drop it. That was it right there. If I drop that, where would we be right now?” NewCath tight end Tyler Lyon on catching the winning touchdown pass in the 2A state title game.

A healthy mix of naughty and nice

With many kids enjoying the holiday at home, their parents may soon be wrestling with the question of the season, “naughty or nice?” In making the calculation about their teenager’s behavior, it’s a good question and a fair point. The answer lies in the fact that Stephen much of what Wallace adolescents COMMUNITY think and do, by RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST developmental design, walks the line between naughty and nice … or at least normal. What does that mean? At a time of breathtaking physical and psychosocial development, teens are charged with accomplishing three critical tasks: establishing an identity of

their own; becoming more independent from their parents; and forging more adult-like relationships with peers. In the aggregate, their progress on these tasks forms a young person’s sense of self, a harbinger of decision-making, confidence and overall mental health. According to Teens Today research conducted by SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), high Sense of Self (SOS) teens are more likely to avoid alcohol and drug use, while low Sense of Self teens are more likely to use alcohol and "harder" drugs such as ecstasy and cocaine. In addition, high SOS teens are more likely than their low SOS counterparts to report feeling smart, successful, responsible and confident. On the mental health side of the ledger, low SOS teens are more likely than high SOS teens to report regular feelings of stress and depression.

Significantly, there is a parental overlay that offers guidance for moms and dads everywhere. For example, 62 percent of teens with a high SOS report that their relationships with their parents make them feel good about themselves, while only about one-third of low SOS teens report the same. In addition, teens with a high SOS report overwhelmingly that they feel respected by their parents (93 percent) and close to their parents (85 percent), while teens with a low SOS report significantly different levels of respect (8 percent) and closeness (12 percent). In other words, parents have skin in the game! Understanding the relationship between each developmental task and behavior likely to accompany it is important, as is supporting the progress of our teens on their developmental journey.

Reports point to promising 2013

As we celebrate the holidays and ready for the new year, many of us may find ourselves taking a moment to recall the positive things in our lives. Statewide, there has been some good news in recent months worth noting. The job market overall is looking someTom McKee what better, with COMMUNITY the state’s unRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST employment rate down, and we’re working on improving the economy here in our legislative district. A national ranking this year showed us doing well among the states in the number of new startup companies, and the news channel CNBC recently reported that Kentucky has the lowest cost of doing business. Both of these point to a promising 2013. Beyond our economy, good news can be found at our schools as well. Early this year, the respected Education Week magazine put Kentucky 14th among the states in its “Quality Counts” report, which measures academic progress. Our fourth-graders, meanwhile, are among the top 10 states in reading for that grade, and eighth-graders are just behind them at 12th for their class. In high school, we’ve seen the number of students taking and passing the difficult Advanced Placement courses almost double in the last five years. These AP classes provide college credit for students who score high enough. For farmers, it turned out that the past year was not as bad as once feared when we were going through the summer’s tough drought. Overall commodity sales this year are expected to be a record $5 billion, and University of Kentucky economists predict it could rise as much as $600 million next year because of increased demand worldwide and high commodity prices. With Kentucky relying more on farm exports than most other states, that trend is good to hear. Another positive trend we’re seeing is the steep decline in the cost of natural gas. The Kentucky Public Service Commission says that prices are now at the lowest they’ve been in

Identity: As young people seek to answer the question “Who am I?,” they regularly – and sometimes frequently – try on different roles, which in turn changes their behavior and may make them appear to be “strangers” on any given day. Independence: A drive toward independence dictates that our teens push us away, or at least hold us at arm’s length. Paradoxically, they need us more now than at any other time during the lifespan besides early infancy. Peer Relationships: The peer group is paramount, and teens often filter through it what they hear from us. Even so, we are the No. 1 reason our teens make good choices. Parents can help their teens achieve a high Sense of Self by: » Supporting a wide sampling of interests, activities and ageappropriate behaviors;

» Encouraging separation from parents and age-appropriate independence in decision-making; » Teaching peer-to-peer social skills and facilitating (positive) peer relationships; » Focusing on productive parent-teen communication. Perhaps most important, we can remind each other that, in many ways – and within limits – our adolescents are doing what they are supposed to be doing. They’re not crazy (and neither are we). In the end, they’re likely a healthy mix of naughty and nice.

a decade, and are 43 percent less than they were in 2008. In addition to seeing more money come in, we’re also good at giving back, especially for those in need. According to the Chronicle of Philanthropy, Kentucky is 15th among the states when it comes to charitable giving. In a related study done several years ago, researchers also found that we are neighborly as well. It showed that nine out of 10 adults here said they had at least one other person they could rely on outside of family during times of emergency, indicating strong community ties. As a nation, the past couple of weeks have been especially trying, but in times like these, we always seem to find a way to reach out and help however we can. Despite the evil that we see all too often in the world, I still believe that there is far more that is good. For now, I hope you have had a good holiday season with family and friends, and that the upcoming year turns out to be even better. As you may know, the 2013 legislative session is set to begin on Jan. 8th, and while there will be no budget to enact this time, there is still a sizeable list of issues to cover. Rep. Tom McKee, D-Cynthia, is a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives. His district includes part of Campbell County.

Ditch the diet in 2013 Make your eating plan a positive challenge

By Libby Cunningham

EDGEWOOD — A local dietitian suggests ditching the diet altogether if you’re looking to eat healthy in 2013. “I feel like the bottom line is just not starting a diet,” said Lindsey House, a weight management dietitian at St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Edgewood. “Look at it as lifelong behaviors you want to start working on.” People often set unspecific weight loss and healthy eating goals, fall short and lose motivation to follow through. “Different ways of get-

ting around it is an example of setting a realistic goal,” House explained. “Instead of saying ‘I’m going to go to the gym’ and saying ‘I’m going to go for five times a week,’ put on a pedometer and walk 10,000 steps (a day.)” Don’t think of an eating plan as deprivation, instead make it a positive challenge. “So (say) ‘I’m going to strive to eat five servings of fruits and veggies a day,’ versus saying ‘I’m not going to eat cookies any more or cut out pop,’” she said. Food journals can keep you on track and are accessible through phone apps like My Fitness Pal, be-

cause they encourage weight loss and keep users in check. Smaller, frequent meals, can keep you from overeating, House said. “I think definitely the purposeful snacks and meals are helpful,” she said. “Remove trigger types of food from your house so you aren’t tempted by foods that are difficult to steer clear of.” Focus on making over the refrigerator with healthy proteins like lean meats, fruits and vegetables. Finally, be patient. “Small changes make a huge difference,” House said.

Eating a variety of healthy foods such as lean meats, fruits and vegetables will help you keep off weight and keep on track with a healthy eating plan, explained Lindsey House, a weight management dietician at St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Edgewood. FILE PHOTO

Quit smoking with free program

By Chris Mayhew

FLORENCE — Lois Mullikin of Florence didn’t intend to stop smoking after 46 years, but taking a 13-week class and support group with her daughter provided her needed encouragement to kick the habit in October 2011. The free Cooper-Clayton Smoking Cessation Classes are offered inperson and via the Internet via online chats by the Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department. “It was really kind of funny because I went into this class basically because I wanted my daughter to quit smoking,” said Mullikin. “And it was really more of if I tell her I’ll do this maybe she’ll quit smoking with me.” Mullikin said she found the support, and good habits to replace smoking including going for a walk or eating pretzels when cravings arose. “I always felt that I had somebody who was kind of counting on me not to smoke, and I think that was the one thing that got me through this class that there was somebody else there struggling with the exact same situation I was,” she said. Mullikin said her daughter didn’t stop

smoking, but knows smoking is a personal decision. Prior to taking the class, Mullikin said she wasn’t sure she wanted to give up cigarettes because it is something she did all the time. She smoked about two packs and spent about $8 a day. In-person smoking cessation classes meet once a week for 13 weeks, and are on a rotation schedule at different locations within the health district, said Megan Folkerth, a senior health educator with the health district’s tobacco program. The next class will meet at the Grant County Schools Board of Education in Williamstown at 1 p.m. each Thursday starting Jan. 3. The next round of classes starting in April will meet in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, Folkerth said. The next online course starts Jan. 17. There will be live chat sessions once a week from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings, she said. “It essentially functions the same except that it’s on the website instead of meeting in person,” Folkerth said.

Either version of the class includes discussions about how to use nicotine replacement products, and finding new ways to deal with and stop the triggers for wanting to smoke including incorporating physical activity in life, she said. “So, we talk about some healthy snacks and having some prepared things ready to grab instead of grabbing a bag of potato chips,” Folkerth said. The only cost of the classes is for any nicotine replacement product, which is typically about the same as how much a person spends on smoking, she said. The health department often sees a “large uptick” of people taking the classes at the beginning of each year because of New Year’s resolutions, Folkerth said. Smokers who quit can reduce their chance of heart attack, stroke and various types of cancer – especially lung cancer, she said. “Obviously, the sooner you quit the more benefits you’re going to see,” Folkerth said.

CRESTVIEW HILLS — An old Nike slogan makes for a great philosophy when embarking upon a journey toward physical fitness, according to Toni Schklar. “As Nike states, ‘Just do it!’” said Schklar, manager and practitioner for St. Elizabeth’s Holistic Health Center in Crestview Hills. “Make the decision to begin today and initiate action now.” She suggests beginning with physician support to reduce risk of injury, and enhance success. Next, put yourself on your calendar every day. Make four of those days a fitness activity. Begin small and incrementally increase effort. “Select a fitness regime that fits you,” she said. “Look at your personal likes and dislikes. Are you a club membership person, a solo exerciser, equipment user, or nature walker? Do you have a predictable schedule or do you need a fitness activity that can flex with your variable work hours?” When considering equipment she warns to purchase only that which you’re certain you’ll use. Unused equipment, she explained, becomes a daily guilt reminder of what you aren’t doing. Pam Westerman, owner of Curves in Florence, said encouragement is a key fueling point. “Find others who will keep you accountable,” she said. “Find a good workout partner, diet partner, or even a coach. Also, it’s important to encourage yourself. Each time you meet a goal, celebrate.” A common roadblock, according to Rob Beil, director of operations and partner at Better Bodies in Fort Mitchell, is not setting a timetable to accom-

Alex Ander, personal trainer and member of Better Bodies in Fort Mitchell does a few pushups to prepare for a workout. MELISSA STEWART/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER plish one’s goals. “You should set a start and an ending, and be realistic,” he said. “A lot of times it takes 12 months to realistically change your lifestyle.” Dedication to yourself is the strongest asset one can have, he said. “Everybody can achieve their goals if they’re dedicated,” Beil said. “The biggest thing is living healthy – it’s not a resolution, but a lifestyle.” All three fitness experts agree that keeping a journal is an important part of any fitness regimen. Writing down your goals, experiences, and eating habits allows for evaluation.

“Evaluate your efforts through a loving lens,” Schklar said. “Constant self-criticism is a setup for failure. Modify your regime to keep you stimulated and invested. If what you’re doing isn’t working, change it, don’t stop.” Setbacks sometimes happen, she said, but it’s no excuse to quit. “Every mistake, setback is an opportunity to learn something that can be applied to moving forward again,” she said. “Becoming fit takes self-initiative, determination, formulation of new habits, and commitment to live life as if it is a marathon and not a sprint. Fitness is an investment in self.”

Rita reviews food trends for 2013 girls, Rachel and Isabella, they are what I call true “back-to-the-landers” and always have the most interesting, and unique, stories to tell about their way of living. As far as other trends for the new year, chefs are discovering what some of us have used and loved for years, like cauliflower and even grapefruit. Brazilian food made the list (it is influenced by the Portuguese, African, Lebanese and German cuisines, so you know it’s good) and so did the spice sumac and DIY yogurt (yep, staples in my Lebanese kitchen). My step-by-step recipe with photos for homemade yogurt is on my blog. As far as technique goes, pan roasting is going to be big. That’s when you start something on top of the stove in an ovenproof pan and finish it off in the oven. More DIY condiments include sriracha, mayo, horseradish and mustard. Gene Goldschmidt, our own mustard and horseradish king here in the Tristate, has been elevating these two humble condiments into gourmet treats for a long time. We enjoy eating the more mild horseradish leaves and flowers along

with the pungent root. Check out my blog for his tips and recipes along with area vendors.

Roasted chicken, cauliflower and carrots with Bible spices Yummy! For the Northern Kentucky and Delhi Township readers who wanted more high-heat recipes for chicken and veggies. Adapted from Martha Stewart using two of my favorite Bible spices. I keep tweaking this, sometimes using more coriander than cumin, and vice versa. The coriander has a lemony/ sagey taste and is antiinflammatory. Cumin has an earthy, distinctive flavor and enhances the immune system. Do the sniff and taste test on coriander as it loses its flavor fairly quickly in the pantry. Both carrots and cauliflower are full of antioxidants, and the chicken is a good protein source.

You can find out about whether you’re listed as a beneficiary on a life Diane insurance Mason policy by going EXTENSION NOTES through the deceased person’s paperwork to look for any insurance policies or transactions, such as a statement, bill or interest paid on a recent tax return. Speak with the deceased person’s financial advisers and employ-

ers to determine if they had any knowledge of any life insurance policies that the person may have had. Check the deceased individual’s mail for up to a year for any policy statement or bill. Whether you decide to look for lost property or not, you may be contacted by someone who wants to help you find lost money for a fee or a percentage of the lost property. These “money finders” are not illegal, but the services they provide are things you can find on your own for free with just a little effort and time.

With post-holiday bills arriving, many of us wish we could find money we lost, forgot about or didn’t know we had. Finding lost valuables, such as insurance policies and unclaimed money or property is easier than you might think. The Kentucky State Treasury has more than $150 million in unclaimed property and money. Banks, insurance companies and other financial entities turn this money over to the treasury when they cannot locate the owners. You can search for any unclaimed valuables on the Kentucky State Treasury’s website, The website has information about how to claim any lost property that you may find. If you have no Internet access, you can request a search by contacting the treasury at 1-800-465-4722. If you have lived in other states, you will want to check in each of those states, too. If you think you may have unclaimed valuables in another state or have an unclaimed tax refund from the federal government, you can search for that money on either or These free sites can connect you with the state and national organizations holding unclaimed property. When using these sites, be sure to look for all variations of your name. Insurance companies often have many unclaimed life insurance policies because the beneficiaries do not know the policies exist. Insurance companies are not obligated to turn this money over to a government agency unless they know the policyholder is deceased. Unfortunately, no national database exists to keep track of unclaimed life insurance policies. with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.


Among the food trends for 2013 are, believe it or not, duck eggs. When we had ducks, the eggs made it to our table in many recipes. According to Bon Appetit, chefs are moving out of the hen house and ditching chicken eggs for their larger and tastier siblings: duck eggs. Restaurants from VenRita ice, Calif., to Heikenfeld Cambridge, RITA’S KITCHEN Mass., are incorporating them into their menu. Some Whole Foods Markets sell them and I have found them at farmers’ markets. This is good news for Bill and Maria Krusling, my sister-in-law Claire’s niece and her family. Maria and Bill have a farm in Albany, Ohio, near Athens, and they have a flock of 450 golden 300 hybrid ducks. Bill and Maria will be selling duck eggs. They also have sheep, cattle, chickens, and herding and sheep dogs. Bill is developing a recipe for high quality raw dog food to sell, as well. With their
