ALEXANDRIA — School Resource Officer Mark Branham needs more basketball free throw shooting practice, but his time to prove his coolness is already complete with many Campbell County Middle School students. Branham has been Alexandria Police Department’s school resource officer based at the middle school since his predecessor James “Stumpy” Sticklen died from a medical emergency on the job while training in Corbin, Ky., in 2011. Betting students practicing basketball after school to free throw contests is one way Branham, 42, develops his rapport with students. If Branham wins, he asks the students to run a few extra laps for their coach. If the students win he buys ice cream or pizza. Branham served ice cream to one of the two eighth-grade girls basketball teams Feb. 11 after he lost by failing to make any free throw shots. The team members made eight in a row. Player Lexi Slusser of Alexandria said Branham is a good mentor and friend to all students. “He’s showing us girls and the guys that he supports us,” Slusser said. Branham shows up at basketball practices and games and other before- and afterschool activities as a matter of routine.

ALEXANDRIA — Agreeing to play in the Groundhog Tournament is a little like upholding the Postal Service motto, as neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow of white, will stay these players from the swift completion of their rounds. Twenty teams competed in the two-day tournament, organized by Rob Haddon of Campbell County’s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3205, on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 22 and 23. Haddon said playing in mud and snow is part of the tournament’s 37-year tradition. “We do like to play in the mud,” said Mike Sester, who made his eighth appearance in the Groundhog tournament. “Every year they put this together, and it’s either for a needy family or to support a baseball team. It’s for a good cause, and it gets our first swings in for the season, even though it’s usually bad.” Swinging isn’t the problem during the two-out innings. Batters have a hard time taking off out of the batter’s box because of the slippery start, and fielders find the balls plop and stop in the mud, instead of doing their usual hops across the dirt. “It is fun to play in the mud, but it’s not easy,” said Sean Kelly. For his second year in the Groundhog Tournament, Kelly opted to play shoeless, wrapping his feet in two layers of socks with plastic wrap in be-

tween. “I ended up taking my shoes off because they kept getting stuck in the mud, so I just played barefoot last year, which was very cold,” he said. Kelly ended up losing the socks before his first game was finished, leaving them in a muddy heap on the dugout floor and playing barefoot. “The winter is a long, long season, so you’ve got to find something fun to do,” he said. “Every year I say I’m not going to play in it, then, every year, I’m like, ‘Sure, I’ll play in it,” said Lisa Dougherty, who played for the third time this year, while wearing boots.

Program to get residents up, moving By Melissa Stewart

The long snowy winter has left many trapped inside, making the couch a safe haven from the bitter cold. Soon, however, the snow will melt, the weather will warm and spring will arrive. It’ll be time to bid the couch farewell. To get people up and going, the Running Spot and St. Elizabeth Hosptial have teamed up to offer Sit to Fit. “This is a program targeting

save gorilla habitats. He’s nearly halfway to his goal, and has 445 phones ready for donation. While Brady was working on a school project about endangered animals, he decided to make donation boxes, set up around Alexandria, to make it easy for people to drop off their phones. “I realized there was a way I could help the gorillas easily. All I had to do is make the posters and fliers and boxes, and we collect the phones,” Brady said. “I thought only birds made nests, but gorillas make nests in trees. They’re pretty big. I like how they carry their babies on their back. They look a lot like humans.” Boxes are located at: » The County Heart, 1519 Pete Neiser Drive; » Brady’s school, Reiley Elementary, 10631 Alexandria Pike, in Alexandria; » Lovely Nails, 350 Cross Roads Blvd., Cold Spring; and » Sts. Peter and Paul School and Church, 2160 and 2162 California Crossroads in California. “Recycling cell phones reduces mining for coltan, an ore used in cell phones, in gorilla habitat and raises money for the zoo’s Conservation Fund,” according to the Cincinnati Zoo’s website, “By recycling your cell phone you are preventing the large number of hazardous substances from entering our environment.

In addition, by recycling coltan, a mineral mined in gorilla habitat, you are helping gorillas maintain a future in the wild.” The zoo website also includes information about

clearing personal information from phones before recycling. Brady’s mom, Elizabeth, said he likes to ask the zookeepers a lot of questions, and that’s how they found out about the recycling program. “Most people just throw old cell phones away or put them in a drawer and forget about them,” she said. “Brady is going to save the world,

was started to reach those who want to start exercising, walking or running from scratch. “This is the need or void that we wanted to fill,” he said. “We feel that there is a great need for programs like this. Many people lack fitness. The desire may be there to become more fit, but often times an individual may not know to whom to go to or where to go to. We feel that offering a sound and enjoyable training program will help the community become more fit.” Roncker said the Sit to Fit program has been very successful. “I cannot tell you the number of wonderful letters that we have received from participants who have participated in the program,” he

said. “To be able to hardly make it to the end of the block without huffing and puffing and then to be able to complete a 5K is quite an achievement,” he said. “Not only does this reduce health risks, but it creates a strong sense of empowerment. After one realizes that they can achieve this, the question comes up, ‘What else can I do?’ That is very exciting to me.” St. Elizabeth public relations manager Guy Karrick agreed that seeing participants reach their fitness goal is rewarding. “What’s most enjoyable is to see the expression on the faces of people who cross the finish line of their very first 5K. Once achieved, it’s theirs

I really believe that.” The family is going to participate in the Gorilla Run on Sunday, March 30, as Team Brady, sponsored by Gorilla Imprints, a screenprinting company. “It will help raise awareness of what I’m doing,” said Brady. “It’s cool to run in a sweaty gorilla suit.” He also dressed as a gorilla for Halloween, but opted to star as himself when he made a YouTube video, “Brady saves the Gorillas!” to encourage more donations. “It’s been very interesting, to say the least,” said Bill Delaney, Brady’s dad. “Every time we bring it up to someone, they say they’ve got two or three and will give them to us.”

to keep. Better health can last a lifetime,” he said. “St. Elizabeth is a strong proponent of better health and wellness and we wanted to team up with a partner who held a similar belief and desire to improve the overall health in our community. This program succeeds where others fail because of the benefits of joining and training with a group of other like-minded individuals.” Karrick said the hospital and the Running Spot want to explore starting a group in Fort Thomas.

To do the job, building positive relationships is the key. “If they don’t feel like they can trust me then they’re not going to come tell me when they see something or they hear something that might be out of the ordinary like a fight or drugs or weapons,” Branham said.

As Branham said he needed more warm-up shots after he missed all eight of his attempted shots at practice Feb. 11. Briena Kincaid of Alexandria said Branham shows students throughout the school he cares by

showing he respects them, and students give the respect back to the police officer. “He’s a great mentor for all the school’s students, and they really look up to him,” Kincaid said.

Gateway students can transfer to Sullivan College

Griffin Hill and Olivia Schuetz gather up the day’s collection of warm winter clothing.THANKS TO LINDA GABIS

First-grade students battle cold with clothing drive T

he first-grade students in the classrooms of Jill Stratman and Kristina Chism at St. Joseph, Cold Spring, School recently conducted a servicelearning project spearheaded by teacher candidate, Katie Shoulta, to collect warm winter clothing from the students and families of St. Joseph. After collecting the items, the students sorted and added them up to practice their math skills. They collected 238 pairs of gloves and mittens, 144 hats and earmuffs, 52 scarves, 167 pairs of socks, and six coats and jackets for a total of 607 items. The warm clothing was donated to Parish Kitchen.

Gateway Community and Technical College and Sullivan College of Technology and Design in Louisville have created a transfer pathway that will allow Gateway associate degree graduates to obtain a bachelor’s degree in advanced manufacturing technology from Sullivan. “We are pleased to offer yet another transfer pathway to our students,” said Laura Urban, Gateway provost and vice president of academic affairs. “The agreement means that students who meet the required criteria will advance seamlessly into the bachelor’s degree program at Sullivan. “The new pathway joins more than 250 other transfer pathways that Gateway has established with 20 colleges and universities throughout the region,” Urban added. “For example, we have specific transfer pathways with Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College, Xavier, University of Cincinnati, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Eastern Kentucky University and Kentucky State University to name a few.” Under the transfer agreement, Gateway associate degree graduates in certain manufacturing programs can receive transfer credit for

their entire associate degree when beginning a bachelor’s degree program at Sullivan. For full credit, graduates must have a 2.0 GPA and a minimum completion rate of 67 percent of credit hours attempted. Three Gateway programs qualify for the transfer pathway: manufacturing engineering technology, industrial maintenance technology and electrical technology. Under a transfer agreement between the Kentucky Community and Technical College System and Sullivan, Gateway students who transfer to Sullivan will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship. The scholarship is renewable annually until the student completes his or her bachelor’s degree in advanced manufacturing technology. Sullivan will award up to 10 such scholarships a year. Formerly known as the Louisville Technical Institute, Sullivan College of Technology and Design is a private, career-focused college accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools and licensed to offer associate and bachelor’s degrees by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.

ate lifelong friendships with each other as well. Molly joined Team In Training in 2007 in memory of her aunt, and Ryan began training with the team in 2008 in honor of his nephew, Sawyer, who was battling acute myeloid leukemia. With Team in Training they benefitted from expert coaching and the opportunity to be part of a supportive team. Both liked the thought of meeting people with similar interests and fitness goals. First, the two were enjoying the many friendships they made while training for the Flying Pig Marathon in 2008, but the bond they felt as teammates developed into something stronger. They completed the Rock N Roll Marathon, together, in Seattle in June 2009, and in August 2011, Ryan and Molly got married. Just before Ryan completed America’s Beautiful Bike Ride in Lake Tahoe, raising more $3,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, he and Molly announced that they were expecting their first child. In November 2013, Molly and Ryan welcomed Logan Patrick, into their lives. Similarly, John and Melanie met in 2007 when they were training for the Flying Pig Marathon with Team In Training. The bond they felt through the mission of the society led to a romance, and they also got married in August 2011. Melanie and John continued to support the team as coaches for the program and helped hundreds of

Cameron and Mary Simoneau with their son Logan participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training. PROVIDED

Brandon completed his first Team In Training event in 2011 at the Flying Pig Marathon, and he met Ashley when she began attending workouts to train for the Madrid Marathon in the fall of 2011. In April 2012 they completed the Madrid Marathon together, and have since completed eight other marathon or half marathons together. Team In Training has played such an important role in their lives that Brandon proposed to Ashley in October 2013 at a Team In Training group workout. “Being a part of Team In Training was a lifechanging experience,” said Brandon. “I was able to accomplish my goal of completing a marathon while doing something to help other people, and finding somebody to share it all with made it even more meaningful.” For more information about Team In Training call the local Tristate chapter at 513-698-2533 or visit

participants cross the finish line, even though Melanie was six months pregnant. In 2012, they welcomed their first baby girl, Jordyn, and just brought their second child, Jocelyn, into the world in December. Cameron and Mary also met during training in 2007 during spring season when they were both training for the Flying Pig Marathon in honor of loved ones. Mary’s mother was battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the time and is now cancer free, and Cameron was drawn to the organization because his grandmother passed from leukemia. Their love budded, and they got married in June 2009. In 2010 Mary and Cameron opened Tri-State Running Company in Edgewood, and the store has since been a partner with Team In Training. Cameron and Mary have a daughter, Reagan, and just had their second child, Brady, in January.

Fausz, Myers dominate state wrestling

By James Weber

LEXINGTON — With seven state placers and two champions, the Campbell County High School displayed a strong brand of excellence at the Kentucky state wrestling championships Feb. 22 at Alltech Arena. As in 2013, the Camels finished second in the team standings but were able to celebrate individual titles from dominant performers. Senior Sean Fausz and junior Austin Myers steamrolled their competition to repeat as individual champs, in Myers’ case, three in a row. “A lot of hard work,” said Fausz. “Not looking past anyone, making sure I wrestled the way I should and what I’m capable of each and every match.” Fausz, who is headed to wrestle at North Carolina State University, rolled in the 138pound final, beating Angel Vasquez of Lafayette 17-6. Fausz won his first match by pin then claimed the next four by double-digit decisions. “It felt good,” said Fausz, who finished 53-2. “He’s a fighter. It wasn’t the most dominant performance I’ve had, but I can’t argue. He was a great opponent and it was a real good fight.” Myers remained unbeaten against Kentucky opponents in his career, beating Cameron Mattingly of John Hardin 20-5 in the 220-pound final, scoring those points in three minutes of match time, with the match ending by technical fall (15point margin). Myers won his first four matches by pin in 68 combined seconds, needing just 35 in the first three rounds. Myers finished 49-0 for the season. “I made my normal moves and what I know how to do,” Myers said. “It was hard to pin him, but a tech fall is good, too. It’s another goal on my way to four (titles). I want to get four.” Eli Matthews finished second at 182, losing 12-1 to Tyler Frankrone of Trinity. Matthews, who finished 36-11, had a

Campbell swimmers set foundation By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — The Campbell County High School swimming and diving team will have one diver representing the purple and gold at this weekend’s state meet at the University of Louisville. The foundation is there for even more Camels to get there in the future, head coach Amy Dorsey said. “I think it’s fantastic we get anybody from our team going to state because we don’t have the club swimmers or the kids who can afford all the extra diving lessons,” Dorsey said. “It’s a big plus for our program when we get someone to state.” Sophomore Adam Leopold will go to state after finishing 10th in the Region 4 meet. He scored 261.90 points in the meet. The 10th-grader has skipped two grades in school. “Adam has been diving for

four years,” Dorsey said. “He’s very intelligent. He’ll try anything and learn the techniques quickly. We push him to learn new dives and better degree of difficulty so he can go back to state the next two years.” Sophomore Adam Burbrink finished14th in diving at regionals. His score was good enough for an at-large state berth but each region is only allowed 12

state berths, Dorsey said. The Camels finished the regional meet on a high note Feb. 16, finishing seventh in the boys 400 freestyle relay. Sophomore Blake Smallwood, junior Brandon Cartwright, junior John Leopold and sophomore Logan Steele swim 3 minutes, 47:52 seconds, about 15 seconds better than their previous best showing and about five seconds

shy of a earning a state berth. “(Cartwright) used to dive and wanted to take a break,” Dorsey said. “I asked him to swim one meet for us because we needed an extra male. He said sure and we were pleasantly surprised.” The boys team finished in 11th place with seven athletes, which Dorsey was proud of. Steele finished 10th individually in the 100 free. The boys team

had12 personal best times in the regional, and the girls team had 14. “None of them are seniors,” Dorsey said. “I have two girls seniors so they should be pretty good next year too.” Seniors are Nicole Robertson and Taylor Schuchter. Follow James on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Be part of making NKY even better Start with $1 million. Then invest $100,000 increments in five community areas: transportation, health and wellness, housing, jobs and education. Which area gets the most dollars? What should the region’s priorities be? That’s up to you. An online interactive game is just one of the many ways the community can get involved with myNKY, a visioning campaign being guided by Vision 2015 that is designed to develop the priorities and goals for Northern Kentucky’s next strategic plan. I work for Vision 2015, Northern Kentucky’s 10-year plan for growth. The plan, created by more than 2,500 people in 2005, has had tremendous success – the launch of the Catalytic Development Fund, the expansion of Success by Six, the recreation of the Northern Kentucky Education Council, the informatics business accelerator known as UpTech, and many more initiatives are a result of our current plan. Now that 2015 is almost here, it’s time to start thinking about the region’s future. It’s time to write the next plan for our community and we need your help to do it. This time around we’re using social media and our

website,, to gather opinions and allow community members, from Wilder to Walton, and Kara Fort Mitchell Williams to Falmouth, to COMMUNITY help set the RECORDER GUEST future direcCOLUMNIST tion for Northern Kentucky. myNKY is the perfect place for you to share your opinions, your thoughts and your ideas about what we need for the future, not only for the region as a whole, but for you and your family personally. It’s a fact – Northern Kentucky stays competitive because we have a common community agenda that allows us to accomplish more collectively than we ever could alone. That’s why creating this plan is so important. I invite you to learn more about the myNKY campaign by attending the Northern Kentucky Forum on Wednesday, March 12, from 8 a.m.-9:30 a.m. at Northern Kentucky University’s George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitorium. During the forum, you’ll hear updates on the campaign’s progress, learn of ways to get involved, and most im-

portantly have the opportunity to share your ideas about the challenges facing Northern Kentucky. But you don’t have to wait until March 12 to get involved. You can start now by visiting The site features a game that I hope you’ll play, as well as a rotating polls and challenge questions on topics such as education, transportation, workforce and jobs. I challenge you to ask yourself, “What one thing do I think can be done to improve life in Northern Kentucky?” Think hard, and answer carefully. The response to this question and to the others you’ll find at could make the difference in making Northern Kentucky a better place to live and work. Whether you do it online or in-person, myNKY is your chance to say – in a way only you can – what Northern Kentucky can do or change to make this region even better. Find out more about myNKY by visiting the website and social media accounts – Twitter: @my_nky; Facebook: Itsmynky; Instagram, my_nky; and Youtube Channel: Itsmynky.

Tea party making three mistakes I was pleased to see Sen. Rand Paul calling out Mat Bevin on his bailout flip-flop. The senator said, “I think it hurts any individual if it appears as if their responses to issues aren’t consistent.” Bevin has done some odd things. He claimed he “attended” MIT when he only attended a seminar in a MIT building. No MIT faculty was involved. Sen. Paul is tea party, yet he said his endorsement and backing of Sen. Mitch McConnell was “unqualified.” Paul said, “I think he’s (McConnell’s) been a very conservative leader for Kentucky.” Yet, the tea party people are still supporting Bevin. Sen. McConnell stands to become Senate majority leader if Republicans control the Senate helping us Kentuckians and the entire U.S. But, the tea party people support Bevin. He would be a “newbie back bencher” with little if any power to help Kentucky if elected. That’s wacko. The tea party got off to a bad start with real Republicans. Garth Kuhnhein, then president of the Northern Kentucky Tea Party, posted the following message on its website just before the March 2012 Republican Party reorganization. Kuhnhein said: “At the next meeting of the

Kenton tea we will discuss how to get involved in your local Republican party and return it to the Ted party of limSmith ited governCOMMUNITY ment, free RECORDER GUEST markets and COLUMNIST fiscal responsibility.” We real Republicans considered Kuhnhein’s comments an insult. He accused us of being for an expanded role of government, in favor of a managed/socialist economies and fiscally irresponsible. He displayed incredible ignorance. Throughout history we Republicans have been the ones promoting limited government, free markets, fiscal responsibility, liberty and the sanctity of life. While Republicans are trying to increase the number of U.S. senators so we can take control of the Senate from Harry Reid, the tea party has taken us in the opposite direction. In 2010, the tea party injected candidates into Republican primaries in Colorado, Delaware and Nevada, defeated the Republican candidates then lost the general elections



A publication of

keeping the seats Democrat. In Indiana, they cost us a seat. The tea party said Republican Sen. Richard Luger was too “liberal” so they injected Richard Mourdock into the Republican primary. Mourdock defeated Lugar then lost the general election to Joe Donnelly, a Democrat. A U.S. Senate seat Republican for 18 years is now Democrat. The tea party consiste ntly makes three mistakes. First, tea partiers attack Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Mitch McConnell yet say nothing negative about Democrats like Harry Reid. Second, tea partiers inject their candidates into Republican primaries, defeat the Republican candidates then lose to the Democrats. Third, tea partiers don’t understand that they cannot achieve their objectives unless they win general elections. Now, as to this RINO thing. I am not a member of the tea party. I am a Republican only. Kuhnhein and his posse are registered Republican, yet call themselves tea party members. They are Republicans in name only. They are the tea party RINOs. Ted Smith lives in Park Hills.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Former felons deserve right to vote

I have been a long time supporter of HB 70. This bill restores the vote to hundreds of thousands of former felons who have paid their debt. This is critical to the health of our democracy. I was deeply saddened to see how the Senate has changed this common sense and fair piece of legislation into an excessive bill that would hang more than half of the targeted population out to dry. I find the five-year waiting period to be extreme. There is a waiting period already in the original bill in the form of probation and parole. The right to vote would be granted only after that Kentuckian had completely served their sentence not upon release from prison. An additional waiting period is pointless and unreasonable. What is equally as troubling is the exclusion of anyone with more than one felony. The goal of prosecutors are to charge a person with as much as possible. It should not matter how many felonies are on your record. If you have served your time then you should be given that essential right back. On paper HB 70 gives the

right to vote back to those offenders who have paid for their transgression. HB 70 is really about welcoming our fellow Kentuckians back into society and treating them with the respect that everyone deserves. I encourage all Kentuckians to voice their concerns with their representatives at 1-800-372-7181.

Universities should fund new bridge During World War II, the business community dropped their business models and immediately began wartime production. Frigidaire no longer made refrigerators, but instead made machine guns and propellers for fighter jets. William Knudsen left General Motors to lead the United States war machine. He left a salary of $300,000 to work for free. Why? Knudsen replied, “This country has been good to me, and I want to pay it back.” American businesses willingly sacrificed a great deal to help America win the war. This is not surprising since businesses are givers, not takers. Today, politicians and business leaders claim there is no money to build vital infrastructure projects like the Brent Spence Bridge. We’re told taxpayers must dig deeper into their pockets and spend thousands of dollars per year to pay tolls. I have another solution. What if the biggest financial takers in America were asked to give back to help finance a major infrastructure project like the Brent Spence Bridge? Would they respond like businesses did during WWII or are they too greedy and self-centered to give back? Do you know how much money is sitting in universities’ endowment funds? Merriam-Webster defines endowments as, “A large amount of money that has been given to a school, hospital, etc., and that is used to pay for its creation and continuing support.” The GAO reports that on

average 8.8 percent of endowment assets are used to fund ongoing operations. Does that mean these funds Tom are dwinWurtz dling? HardCOMMUNITY ly! RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST The National Association of College & University Business Officers surveyed 835 colleges and universities and found 2013 endowment assets total $448.6 billion. That’s an increase of 10 percent over 2012 assets of $406.1 billion. Eighty-two universities have endowment funds exceeding a billion dollars. Harvard’s endowment fund increased from $30.7 billion in 2012 to $32.7 billion in 2013. That’s an increase of a B. S. Bridge. The top five endowment funds are: Harvard $32.7 billion, Yale $20.7 billion, Texas $18.3 billion, Stanford $17 billion and Princeton $17 billion. If these takers would make a one-time donation of $3 billion to the B.S. Bridge Project their endowment funds would drop by less than 1 percent. Each school would pay their proportionate fair share. I know they’ll scream that they need that money to survive as if bridge-crossers don’t need their money to survive as well. Shut up and do it for America.

Small business owners share work space By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith kynews@NKY.Com


mall businesses significantly impact Kentucky’s economy, according to a report by the U.S. Small Business Administration published last February. They represent 96.7 percent of all employers and 47.8 percent of the private-sector labor force. Pie Bird Sweet and Savory is one of them. The handmade pie business began in an Elsmere home last summer. The

owner, Jonni Lynch,, is married and mother of a 5-year-old, with four dogs and a full-time job at a law firm in Covington. “This is what I love to do,” she shared. “I want to give myself the opportunity.” About five months ago Lynch joined the Northern Kentucky Kitchen Incubator. Together with other small business owners, she shares kitchen space at Senior Services of Northern Kentucky in Covington. The idea came from Rachel DesRochers. “The kitchen

incubator is a united kitchen space so that we’re all working under one roof,” she said. Her business, Grateful Grahams, produces handmade vegan graham crackers. “It allows small businesses to get off the ground so they’re not taking over the burden in overhead of what of a commercial kitchen costs.” Members of the incubator meet once a month to share ideas. For instance, they negotiated with a local printer so they can get their labels printed at a discounted rate.

“We have buying power that we wouldn’t have if we didn’t work together,” DesRochers said. “We’re also working with an accountant who’s going to help us,” she added. “He’s retired and part of the senior services, and just wants to donate his time.” To celebrate their successes they had an open house earlier this month where all the food produced at the kitchen was up for sale. The event drew quite a crowd. Other local producers repre-

sented were the Delish Dish gourmet caterers, Love and Fluff Marshmallows, Whirlybird Granola, and Evergreen Holistic Learning Center, bakers of vegan zucchini bread. Small business owners who are interested in becoming part of the incubator should contact DesRochers at “When you have other people that own small businesses, you have somebody to talk to,” DesRochers shared. “It’s awesome because we all work together.”

Rita’s pasta and butternut squash recipe can be altered depending on what tastes good to you or what you have on hand.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Recipes for pasta, squash, cough syrup

Pasta with butternut squash and sage This is a real impromptu, go to taste recipe. The original called for fresh sage and I only had dried from my herb garden. Unless you add red pepper flakes, don’t look for a lot of spice in this dish, just a nice, mellow flavor. 1 butternut squash, about 3 pounds, peeled and chopped into 1⁄2-inch cubes 1 large red onion, coarsely chopped Olive oil 8 oz. whole wheat short pasta 4 tablespoons butter or olive oil Dry or fresh sage leaves (start with 1 teaspoon dry or 6 fresh, chopped and go from there) 2-3 teaspoons minced garlic Salt and pepper (I added a bit of crushed red pepper flakes at the end) Parmesan for garnish

Preheat oven to 375 de-

grees. Mix squash, onion, salt and pepper, and enough olive oil to coat. Place in single layer on pan and roast about 30-40 minutes, until squash is tender and lightly browned, turning halfway through. Cook pasta. Cook butter, sage and garlic until garlic is golden. Add squash mixture, and pasta (I didn’t add all the pasta at once) to taste. Add more sage if you like. Add red pepper flakes if you want. Sprinkle with cheese. Serves 3-4.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Easy-to-peel winter squash/pumpkins: Worth sharing again. Poke holes all over with fork. Put in microwave on high for a few minutes. This softens the skin. Remove with mitts. Let cool and peel. You know what? The squash/onion mixture is so good on its own that it would make a great side dish.

Homemade honey-lemon cough syrup

over to cover. Smoosh all down with a spoon. Let sit in refrigerator a couple of days before using. Store in refrigerator. Take a teaspoonful as needed, several times a day if necessary.

It was a week of “last ofs.” We split and stacked the last of our wood (check out our smiling photos on my blog) and we had our last sled ride of the year. Son Jason videoed it not just for Rita fun, but, as Heikenfeld he said, “to have eviRITA’S KITCHEN dence that you, mom, actually made it down the hill.” Well, I not only made it down the hill but I went farther than any of the kids.

Lecture gives food for thought Mel Brooks used comedy to tell the history of the world. Jonathon Reynolds will use food. What took Brooks two movies, parts one and two, Reynolds will do in an hour when his lecture, “Every Bite a Taste of History: How Food Enriches our Understanding of the World,” tells humankind’s story by discussing what we’ve eaten over the centuries and why. The lecture by Reynolds, who teaches courses in African and world history at North-

ern Kentucky University, is part of NKU’s Six@Six Lectures. “Ery Bite” will be presented 67:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at The Carnegie on Scott Street in Covington. Almost everything we eat is a result of a long and complex history of interactions between humans, the environment, and one another. Racing across 10 millennia, Reynolds will examine technology, gender, crop domestication, and longdistance trade as they relate to the world's rich

and diverse history and food. “Food offers a unique perspective on human history because it moves and changes, and in so doing it complicates and confounds our notions of a simple and linear World History. Plus, everybody eats, so it's easy to make it comparative,” said Reynolds. “Arguably, two of the most significant events in human history, the development of sedentary agriculture and the Columbian Exchange, are both food-related.”

Tickets are $6. All students are free with a valid student ID, but a ticket is required. For more information about this lecture or to purchase tickets, visit This lecture has a special portion, “A Global Food Tasting: Taste of the World Buffet,” a tasting of the foods that will highlighted in the lecture. The tasting will be from 5-6 p.m. A lecture ticket is required to attend but there is no additional charge.

Can termites invade your house from firewood? Question: Do I need to worry about the possibility of termites or other harmful insects emerging from the firewood inside my home or garage? Answer: Insects that are brought into the home in firewood may cause alarm, but most pose no problem. Firewood insects usually belong to one of two groups: those that actively feed on wood, and those that are there only for shelter. Many insects attack stressed or dead trees. Beetles are the most common group found developing in firewood. These include various wood borers, the legless, white larval stages of borers can be found while splitting logs. Piles of sawdust appear from small holes in logs infested by powderpost beetles. The potential for these insects to infest structural wood in the house is very low. Often these borers attack only certain types of wood, such as hickory or oak. Also, the moisture content of the wood usually has to be much higher than that found in structural wood in the home. Sometimes the adult emerges after logs are brought indoors. Roundheaded wood borers are brightly marked, fast beetles with long antennae. The elongate flat-headed woodborers often have a metallic sheen. Powderpost beetles are small, brown to black insects. Any of these may be seen crawling or flying in the room or accumulating at windows or light fixtures as they move to light. These insects are harmless. Carpenter ants and termites may also be found in firewood that has been wet or stacked in one place for a long time. Termite colonies are in the soil, so only workers are found in the wood. Termites form mud tunnels and this mud can be found in wood that they are at-

tacking. Carpenter ant galleries are very clean, with no mud or sawdust. Individuals Mike brought Klahr into the HORTICULTURE house in CONCERNS logs will not start an infestation but a colony may exist in old wood piles outdoors. Many insects, such as beetles, wood cockroaches, and even over-wintering wasp or hornet queens simply seek over-wintering sites under loose bark or in hollow trees that are subsequently used for firewood. Spider egg sacks, praying mantis egg masses, and moth cocoons may also be associated with trees or fallen logs. These creatures will become active after warming up indoors. They can be swatted and discarded as they appear. These insects are not able to survive for extended periods indoors. They will not multiply or become established in the home. Insect invasion of homes from firewood can be reduced by following these rules: » Avoid stacking the wood directly on the ground. This will keep the wood from getting too wet and reduce the chances for infestation by termites and ants. » Don’t stack firewood in or against the house or other buildings for long periods of time. Termite or carpenter ant problems can develop and cause more serious problems. For more information, go to BooneHortNews or contact your local county Cooperative Extension Service. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

Thomas More going tobacco free

Community & Technical College CE-0000583079


A tobacco-free campus will welcome students for Thomas More College’s 2014-2015 school year. The announcement was made internally to students on January 27. The tobacco-free policy will take effect campus-wide June 1. This policy will apply to all areas of campus at all times, including evening classes and sporting events. A task force is in the process of drafting the final policy and smoking cessation programs are being developed. Educational programs will provide students, staff and faculty the opportunity to prepare for the policy and get the support they need to stop using tobacco. Dates for these classes will be listed on our website once they are scheduled. “Thomas More College is excited to join the grow-

ing number of colleges and universities that have taken this important step in providing a healthy environment for the students, faculty, staff and friends of the institution. We recognize the significance of this decision for some people and are going to take a compassionate approach focused on health and well being,” said college president David A. Armstrong. “This is an important step towards campus wellness. The policy will make campus a more clean and safe environment. We want to give everyone time to prepare and give our task force time to instigate support services, which is why we chose an effective date of June 1,” said Matthew Webster, Vice president of operations & community affairs at Thomas More College.

Two-headed calf award goes to three Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park has named three people as this year’s recipients of the Two-Headed Calf Awards. Jim Reis, Rick Hulefeld and Ralph Drees will receive the award at a banquet Saturday, March 8, at the Northern Kentucky University’s James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union Ballroom. The fourth annual TwoHeaded Calf Awards are designed to recognize Northern Kentuckians for significant accomplishments in the areas of history, education and community service. The awards are named for the museum’s most notorious and fun exhibit: a preserved two-headed calf. The calf symbolizes that very often true excellence rests with those who demonstrate achievement beyond a single contribution. Just as two heads are better than one, so, too, is the service of the people these awards honor. The winners are: » Jim Reis – Historical Award Reis was a reporter for the Kentucky Post for 38 years and has devoted his life to researching Northern Kentucky history. He is a contributor to “The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky” and serves on the board of the Campbell County Historical Society. “He has to be the single most quotes source of

anyone regarding Northern Kentucky history,” said Ken Reis, his brother and presiReis dent of the Campbell County Historical Society. His column “Pieces of the Past” began as an experiment about the history of Northern Kentucky’s small towns and turned into more than 1,100 columns which were later published into four books. » Rick Hulefeld – Education Award Hulefeld is the founder and executive director of Children Inc. in Covington. He has made enormous contributions to our region over the last 40 years. Hulefeld has shown passion and a commitment to bettering the lives of our youth. Children Inc. has grown from one site serving only a few dozen children to a comprehensive child care provider involved in a multitude of activities, programs and policymaking efforts that are all devoted to improving the lives of our youth. Hulefeld Hulefeld has developed Children Inc. into Kentucky’s larg-

est provider of early childhood education services. » Ralph Drees – Community Service Award A former Kenton County judge-executive, Drees has shown a longstanding commitment to the organizations, charities, and people of this region. As a nationally recognized builder, he has supported numerous organizations throughout Greater Cincinnati including the BehringeCrawford Museum and The Carnegie. In 2003 he developed and donated the Drees Pavilion, named after his father, in Devou Park creating a strong foundation for the continuing rejuvenation of the park. Proceeds directly benefit projects improving the beauty and utility of the Park for all of Drees the region’s residents. The awards banquet will be in the James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union Ballroom will begin at 6 p.m. March 8.person or $800 for a table of eight.
