Petting zoo attracts wildlife
Noah’s Ark Farm & Petting Zoo, in its 12th year as a haven for animals big and small, opens April 15 this year with an unplanned attraction of a wildlife rookery of a nesting colony of great blue herons. Wanda Wanner and Buddy Teke keep the farm at 3269 Koehler Road in California. The nesting colony of great blue herons in the tops of trees lining one of the farm fields has been a surprise that’s been growing in recent years and has grown over several years from five to 14 and finally 21 nests by this spring.

Attorney’s race features primary contest By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Campbell County Attorney candidates Chris Macke and Steve Franzen will face each other in the May 18 primary for the right to be the Republican candidate in November to challenge Democrat Jim Daley, the incumbent, for the job. Daley was appointed to the post in December 2008 after Justin Verst retired from the office. Franzen, 54, of Newport, said he sees the office as the most important legal position in the county, and that his experience with cases in areas where the county attorney works makes him uniquely qualified. Macke, 46, of Newport, said he thinks he thinks there needs to be a difference in the philosophy of government and he wants to keep taxes and government expenditures to a minimum. Franzen said his experience includes five years as an assistant Campbell County Attorney where he prosecuted and tried jury cases and 23 years as the city attorney for Highland Heights where he has helped the city go through bonding issues for property and buildings. “All these are things that the county attorney does,” he said. Franzen said he’s worked, tried and defended cases include planning and zoning cases, nursing home cases, employment cases, Civil Rights actions, nursing home cases, employment cases, medical malpractice, and complex criminal law cases as a prosecutor and defense attorney, Franzen said. “I’m not exaggerating when I say, … if you do not have the required experience and understanding of those issues, it can
cost the county a lot of money both in civil litigation and loss of criminal prosecutions,” he said. Franzen said he wants the county to take a very serious look at becoming self-insured, which could save $100,000 or more annually. “In order to do that the county attorney has to be comfortable with litigating these types of issues, which I have,” he said. Franzen said he also wants to work with parents willing to pay their child support, while stepping up enforcement to make sure parents are paying for their children’s care. Franzen said he doesn’t believe the election for county attorney should be a partisan race, but he feels strongly the office needs to be accountable to the public. “I do believe that the county attorney should be elected, the county attorney must be independent of the judge-executive and the county commissioners,” he said. Macke, an attorney since 1993, said he has primarily spent his career in civil and business law dealing with real estate transactions, zoning and variances and representing corporations. “Obviously there’s competence in each of the three candidates,” Macke said. “But, I come at it strictly from a private enterprise standpoint.”
YOU DESERVE A JOB AND A HIGH-FIVE.
While recognizing the office is not part of the elected body of Fiscal Court, the county attorney still has a role to play in saving county money, he said. Macke said he might have offered the county a different legal opinion about the county’s new building in Newport that’s led to litigation and expenses. “If I thought that there was a possibility of litigation we could have thought out the whole Tim Nolan lawsuit and saved a whole bunch of money,” he said. Macke said one of the most important developments going on in the county is Ovation, the $1 billion mixed-use residential and commercial/retail area planned on Newport’s riverfront by Corporex CEO Bill Butler. “I would like to be in the conversation about gambling if gambling is ever approved in the General Assembly and bringing that to the riverfront with Bill Butler,” Macke said. On other issues, Macke said he’s done work in juvenile court and wants to see a more punitive approach for parents who don’t take an active interest in their children’s education, and he wants to prosecute more DUI cases for more than the minimum fine instead of pleading the case out. “A lot of the times the defendants can pay more than the minimums and should pay more than the minimums,” Macke said. But Macke said his main mission is to be involved in the county’s conversations about spending money and advising conservative spending. “I’ll always be the stick in the mud advising Fiscal Court about spending tax payer money, and I think that’s OK,” he said.
Cold Spring resident Jacob Dougherty is quite a character, and is out to prove he’s the right person to sell insurance on television. Progressive has selected Dougherty, 21, as one of the 10 finalists out of more than 2,500 entries for the “Help Flo” video Visit contest.

Dougherty said he started practicing accents for his mother when he was as young as 6 years old. “I can do pretty much any accent,” he said. After seeing the opportunity to enter the commercial audition contest in January, Dougherty said he decided to write out a creative script and use some of the accents he uses most frequently around his friends. “I’ve always had a passion for acting, and have never had an opportunity to purse it,” he said. Dougherty said he has always worked at being creative and he records his own comedy songs. Dougherty said does parodies in every musical genre from metal to country. “Because they’re funny songs, I pretty much do everything I do acoustically,” he said. Dougherty’s mother, Diana Rebholz of Grant’s Lick, said her son has always had a flair for the creative, and that he created the video with help from two of his friends. After attending school for audio and visual production, he now works for a bank full-time, owns a recording studio and plays in a band in his spare time, Rebholz said. “He’s always been very very good at portraying different accents and playing different characters,” she said.

County leaves position open for savings By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Campbell County Fiscal Court announced at the April 7 meeting temporary plans for managing the duties of the human services director position left vacant by the retirement of Pat Dressman. Dressman of Independence, retired March 30 from the Campbell County position she worked in for 11 years to continue her campaign for a Kenton County commissioner spot. Campbell County judgeexecutive Steve Pendery said Dressman has been in charge of one of the best attended and most awarded-winning senior centers in Kentucky during her tenure. Dressman has also distributed funds from mental health and retardation and senior citizens taxes in a fashion that does the most good, he said. After Dressman was honored with a retirement ceremony during the April 7 meeting, a new part-time position was added to handle some of Dressman’s duties. Katie Tallon, Dressman’s intern for the past two years, will be the new part-time human service

Dressman said a person can only succeed if they have a good staff and invited Marsha Dufeck, director of the senior center; Sarah Ritchie, health and wellness coordinator at the senior center; and Tallon, to stand with her during her retirement ceremony. “It’s been a pleasure to
serve Campbell County all these years, and I’m sure Katie will do a good job,” Dressman said. “She’s doing a good job already as a student intern.” Tallon’s position will be limited to 100 hours a month at a pay rate of $15.72 an hour, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. Tallon’s job

will include reviewing and paying monthly claims from social service agencies, Horine said. She’ll also be the point of contact for the agencies and work on troubleshooting and finding solutions to problems, working in concert with the social agencies, he said. Horine said there was no recommendation to fill the director’s position anytime soon, which including salary and benefits costs the county about $80,000 per year. “By saving money in
Why the retirement?
Pat Dressman spent 11 years as director of human services for Campbell County before retiring March 30. Dressman said she resigned after asking the U.S. Office of Special Counsel for a consultation about her candidacy for Kenton County commissioner. After the consultation, Dressman was given until the end of March to either withdraw from the race or resign her position because the candidacy was in violation of the Hatch Act. State and local employees, except school officials, are prohibited from political activity if their work involves programs financed with federal money according to the agency. The May 18 Republican primary will feature three candidates Dressman of Independence, incumbent commissioner Sara Reeder Voelker of Taylor Mill, and former state Rep. Jon Draud of Edgewood. The winner will face Democrat Tom Elfers of Edgewood in the November general election. this regard, we’re able to dedicate more funds to the delivery of services,” Horine said. Since the economy has taken Campbell County’s unemployment rate from 5 percent to 11 percent, the county is now receiving less from mental health and retardation and senior citizens payroll tax revenue, he said. “And in an economic downturn, the demand for those services don’t go down, they go up,” he said. Social services have already been told this year to expect a 5 percent funding cut, Horine said. The county also approved the 2011 overall funding for the two funds at the April 7 meeting. The Mental Health/Mental Retardation funds allocated were $792,740, and the Senior Citizens Tax allocated was $488,160. Services covered from the two payroll taxes
include everything from the Meals on Wheels for seniors program and adult daycare to school-based health programs in Newport and programs at children’s homes. Horine said the county will leave the director position open as long as possible. “But, I don’t think we’ll leave it open for a full year,” he said. Horine said the county already has left positions vacant in other areas to save money during the past year including two police officer job, five jail jobs, and one administration job. Horine said Marsha Dufeck, director of the senior center in Highland Heights, will take a greater responsibility for managing the center and Tallon will take over some of Dressman’s other duties. “Employees are stepping up to do what they need to do to make sure services are continued,” Horine said.

Police handgun explodes while firing at target range By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
New guns are on order in Alexandria after a handgun issued to an officer of the Alexandria Police Department exploded in his hands on the firing range. The officer is all right now, but he broke his index finger and received burns to both hands from the March 24 incident, said Chief Mike Ward. “He’s back to work, and he’s doing OK,” Ward said of the officer. The officer missed a couple of days of work while having an orthopedic surgeon look at the finger. “He’s just damn lucky that it didn’t come back and hit him in the face or get him in his eyes,” Ward said. Ward said the officer told him the explosion felt like someone dropped a 10

Until the explosion, Ward said he was unaware there were ever any issues with the Glock .45 caliber handguns that all 14 offi-
cers in the city are issued, he said. The guns, some 10 years old, were all every well maintained, Ward said. There are .45 caliber guns built as long ago as World
War II that still work very well, he said. “There was absolutely no reason that should ever have happened,” Ward said. It’s believed the explosion was the result of some combination of weapon and ammunition failure, Ward said. There’s no way to determine with certainty the weapon was the only thing at fault, he said. But the bottom of the breach blew out, and it blew out the side of the weapon, he said. “And it was a mess, and it just should not have happened,” Ward said. Ward said it was only after the explosion did he learn that other police agencies in the U.S. have had similar problems, but he’s never seen any official advisory. So, the department is trading in its Glock hand-
guns as part of a purchase of new Sig Sauer .45 caliber and 9 millimeter handguns for the officers, he said. With the trade in, the cost will be about $4,000, and the department expects to have the new handguns by the end of April, Ward said. Ward said in his career shooting multiple weapons in both the military and in police service, he’s never had a gun blow up before. When it comes to police equipment, having a car and a weapon that are as close to 100 percent reliability as possible is of the utmost importance, he said. “Those are two things that could kill us or take someone else’s life, so we felt it was best that we replace them,” Ward said. Ward said the department just couldn’t take a chance with the existing

The swine flu vaccination campaign in the fall 2009 and winter 2010 was unlike any challenge ever faced by the Northern Kentucky Health Department. Thousands of residents received the vaccine, many through community vaccination clinics. The Health Department’s vaccination efforts would not have been successful without the support of two groups: the Northern Kentucky Medical Reserve Corps and TANK. For their assistance, both groups are being recognized with the 2010 Award of Excellence in Public Health. The awards presentation took place during the Kentucky Outreach and Information Network luncheon April 13 at Receptions in Erlanger. Seventy-four members of the Medical Reserve Corps responded to the
swine flu vaccination effort. They functioned in a number of capacities including data entry, clerical support, flow support, medical screening of clients, medical triage, vaccine administrative support, vaccine administration and exit evaluation. “The Medical Reserve Corps members were a vital component of our community response,” said Jennifer Hunter, director of clinical services, in her nomination. “They jumped in to the roles assigned to them with true dedication, smiling faces and an overall positive attitude. They adjusted to whatever came their way, changed roles when needed and were complimented by many internal staff and public. They melded into our team with ease and held our goals as theirs.” TANK provided shuttle bus service
for four community flu vaccination clinics. Their leadership was quick to join the response efforts, and performed the preliminary work on routes to be taken and coordinated dropoff/pick-up scheduling. “The bus drivers could not have been more cordial and accommodating,” said Steve Divine, director of environmental health and safety, in his nomination. “Not only did they perform their duties with high marks, but they also understood the overall mission of protecting the public’s health by taking part in these events.” The Award of Excellence in Public Health is presented each spring to honor those people or organizations in Northern Kentucky who have shown progress toward achieving and maintaining a healthier community.

Everything Pets Expo brings pets and their people together Animal Communicator Donetta Zimmerman was there doing animal psychic readings, there were agility demonstrations with dogs running obstacle courses and discussions about the suitability of exotic animals for pets.
By Marsie Hall Newbold email@example.com
Dr. Doolittle wasn’t the only one “talking to the animals” this past weekend at the Duke Energy Convention Center at the Everything Pets Expo, a pet-centric trade show offering education, entertainment and equipment. Animal Communicator Donetta Zimmerman was there doing animal psychic readings, there were agility demonstrations with dogs running obstacle courses, discussions about the suitability of exotic animals for pets and “Ultimate Air Dogs” competing to see who could leap the furthest into a pool. Attendees were taught how to make home-baked treats, “makeovers” turned dogs from “dingy to dazzling” and representatives of The Late Show with David Letterman were there to audition local house pets for upcoming “Stupid Pet Tricks“ segments. “We’re having a great time,” said Angela Cooney of Bethel who was attending with husband, Anthony and their children Livie, 5, and Max, 2. She was holding Max up so he could gently stroke the nose of one of the Cincinnati Police Department’s Mounted Patrol Squad horses. This was the family’s second visit to the show. “This is a great event,” she said. “We came a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, so now we’re back. The main thing we wanted to see were the ‘Fly

The family owns three dogs, three horses and three cats. “It helps to build character,” he said. “It teaches them responsibility and makes them happier throughout their lives.” Pam Elliot and Jeane Doan of Guilford, Ind. were all smiles as they perused the aisles tightly holding the leashes of Lily, Rosie and Cassidy, three friendly and fluffy Japanese Chin dogs. They were here to volunteer time working at the West Chester based “Lucky Chin” rescue group booth. “It’s great to see all of these pet people together at one time,” said Elliott, straightening the squirming Lily’s colorful bandana. Self-professed “dog people,” they also own two Boxers. “When the doorbell rings at our house it is pretty exciting,” Doan said, chuckling, “All you hear is barking and us yelling, ‘Shut up, shut up, stop, stop…stop!’”
Over at the “Bird Fever” exotic bird store booth fourth-grader Elizabeth Stevens, 9, of Springdale was cradling Cocoa, a white Umbrella Cockatoo. She was attending the expo with her Aunt, Sylvia Bain of Green Township. “I love animals,” she said, grinning and complying as her feathery pal stretched out a wing indicating that was where she’d like to be rubbed. “I don’t have a lot of pets right now, just a Bearded Dragon named Spike and
Miranda, who is a Hound mix.” What the little girl likes most about pets is, “Even if I want to be alone I can still be with them and talk to them. They always listen, you know?” Stevens believes that kindness matters. “It’s important to always take good care of them,” she said. “What you do for them may come back to you; because someday you may be need to be taken care of yourself.”

School brings little ones safety lessons
By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Each year Campbell Ridge Elementary schools its youngest students in a few basic safety lessons. During the school’s annual kindergarten health and safety fair Wednesday, April 7, students were fingerprinted by police for help if they are ever reported missing, and they learned to stop, drop and roll with the assistance of a firefighter. They also received instructional tips about
everything from slopping on sunscreen to protect against the sun to hands-on lessons about bus safety and dental hygiene. In previous years the event was always done in conjunction with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and featured bicycle safety and further healthrelated lessons, said Linda Hardy, the school nurse. Hardy said because of the economy and the need to trim expenses, the cost to transport the equipment like bicycles and helmets from

Cincinnati Children’s was too much. So, instead there is a greater emphasis on local police, firefighters, the school staff and local dental representatives, Hardy said. “Basically we’re getting the same information across, but we’re doing it for less,” she said. Michelle McGrath, a dental hygienist for Highland Heights dentist David M. Rider, showed the kindergartners how to use a tooth brush using a stuffed animal. McGrath also taught the children about why they need to brush their teeth after eating, especially after a sugary sweet. Remember that the dentist is there to help you, and it’s fun and isn’t scary, McGrath said to the children. “Nobody ever told me that when I was little,” she said. Hardy and other staff members at the school led students through lessons about preventing sun damage to skin and eyes. Students learned the lessons of “slip, slop, slap and wrap,” Hardy said. The emphasis of the saying is to slip on a long

Plum Creek Christian Church in Butler is offering weekly “Creative Kids Academy” summer camps with themes ranging from “Adventures in Art” to “Wild, Wild West” depending on the week. Children can come to the K-12 grades camps for one week or all of them, said Jared Perkins, children’s minister for Plum Creek. Each camp includes a hot lunch every day and
most weekly camps will have a field trip with a bag lunch on one of the dates, Perkins said. State assistance is also available to qualified applicants, he said. Camps begin the week of June 7-11 with “Down on the Farm” and conclude with the final camp “The Great Outdoors” Aug. 9-13. For information visit www.plumcreek.org.

Linda Cross, the Family Resource Center coordinator for Grant’s Lick and Reiley elementary schools, said it’s the second year for the community camp and recre-
and safety to the children at a very early age, Hardy said. They get to meet people like a person from the dentist office and from police and fire agencies in the process, she said. “It’s just to help the kids know that the fireman is there to help them, it’s not a scary person,” Hardy said.
More camp connections
By Chris Mayhew
As the school year nears its conclusion it’s time to book it – but only when it comes to summer camps and activities. Campbell County Schools’ Family Resource Centers gathered more than 25 camp and activity opportunities in one place April 8 for a community camp and recreation fair at the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service office in Highland Heights. Local camps included everything from sports and outdoor camps to a learning Spanish and a “Survivor Camp” based on the reality television show of the same name. In addition to regular private music lessons offered at Northern Kentucky University for students, there are several music-related camps, said Toni W. Sheffer, director of the music preparatory department. One of the most popular is the June 14-18 or July 12-16 “Theatre Works” musical theater and drama camp for ages 7-15, Sheffer said. The point is to come and have fun and with handson learning in musical theater, she said. “It’s educational, but it’s also just good summer fun,” Sheffer said. There are also summer strings camp for players
said. There was also a Diabetes walk for students this year, and there is always a health and safety fair for fifth-graders on subjects ranging from hygiene to staying away from downed power lines, she said. But, the kindergarten event is a way to get basic information about health
ation fair and this year’s had more booths. It’s onestop shopping, Cross said. “I think it just gives parents a good idea of what’s out there,” Cross said. Eric Bihl of Claryville brought his 14-year-old daughter Cammy to the April 8 event. Cammy said she just wanted to see if there was something fun to do and hadn’t decided upon a camp or activity. Cammy is already involved in 4-H activities including the 4-H teen summit, Eric said. But, Eric said his daughter is always looking for something to do in the summer. “She’s always interested in outside stuff,” he said.

Hot-hitting Mustangs race to hot 9-1 start
By James Weber email@example.com
The Bishop Brossart High School baseball team has seemingly had to buy a lot of new baseballs since it has been tearing the cover off the ones used the last few weeks. The Mustangs entered the All “A” 10th Region Tournament with a 9-1 record through April 7. They won their last six games, averaging 14 runs per game in that span. No Mustang has been vandalizing the ball more than junior outfielder Travis Norton. In a two-day stretch April 6-7, Norton had 11 straight hits in three lopsided wins. March 31 against Ryle, Norton tied a state record with four doubles during a 10-8 win over the Raiders. He had 11 doubles through the team’s first eight games. “I’m just seeing the ball really well,” Norton said. “My swing feels really well. The big thing is our team keeps winning. That’s all I’m worried about.” Norton, a third-year starter, hit .359 last year. “He’s definitely come a long way with his hitting,” Brossart head coach Matt Grosser said. “He’s hitting the ball hard, he’s hitting the gaps. He’s seeing a good pitch and attacking it.” While the offense has been explosive, Grosser’s first explanation for the team’s hot start has been improved pitching. Brossart allowed three runs or less in six of the first 10 games. “Our pitchers needed another year to develop last year,” Grosser said. “We have some guys who are talented but they’re young. The year of maturity is really making a difference. We have seven guys we can put out there we feel pretty confident in, and that’s pretty rare.” Grosser hopes to add an eighth quality arm in junior Nick Hamberg, who will miss several weeks with a thumb injury. He hit .367

Bishop Brossart senior second baseman Steve Popovich tries to get the double play against Carroll County during Brossart’s 13-2 home win April 6. last year. Norton is excited about the team’s start. “We have a lot of high expectations,” Norton said. “We didn’t lose a whole lot from last year. We’ve kind of got that underdog factor. A lot of people didn’t expect a lot from us, but we know what we can do.” The Mustangs are on their way to doing more than last year’s 12-17 season. “Our seniors have done a great job of setting the tone,” Grosser said. “All the guys get along; the chemistry has made the difference on the field.”

SIDELINES New Cath Hoops Camp
Katie Allen and Courtney Sandfoss started out as AAU teammates, but ended up as district rivals during their basketball careers. April 10, they were teammates again, playing for the Kentucky team in the Ohio-Kentucky senior all-star basketball games at Thomas More College. Allen (Highlands) and Sandfoss (Newport Central Catholic) joined Campbell County High School’s Brianna Peters as county representatives in the game. All three were on the floor together at various times. “We think alike. The chemistry was still there,” Allen said of Sandfoss. “The game wasn’t close but it was fun. It was great to be a part of.” Sandfoss and Peters scored seven points apiece and Allen five in Kentucky’s 84-55 loss. “It was a great experience,” Sandfoss said. “I loved meeting the new girls, people I’ve never played with before. That’s also the hard part – we had two days of practice.” Peters, the Campbell County center and first team all-region pick in the 10th, enjoyed making two late free throws for her final points. Allen and Sandfoss may be teammates more in the future, with Peters as well. All three area players are still weighing their college

They are each considering continuing their hoops careers on the same floor at Thomas More, playing for the NCAA Division III powers. Peters is considering TMC and Wilmington College. She plans to major in animal science so she can work for a zoo, and said her decision will come down to academics. Sandfoss will major in nursing and hopes to stay local, but is unsure whether she will play basketball or not. Allen is weighing several college offers as well.

Last week’s question
Do you agree with President Obama’s decision to open more coastal waters to oil and gas exploration? Why or why not? “Yes and no. For the people who depend on gasoline and I guess that is about 98 percent of us maybe the price would come down. and for the people that have No. 2 oil for heating it really would be a godsend because of the price of oil would go down. But terrorists have targets in mind and these sites in my opinion are just like sitting ducks.” Isabelle Klopsch, Burlington “Yes, because the foreign oil companies are charging way too much for theirs.” Kimberley A. Powell “Yes! We must decrease our reliance on foreign countries for our energy sources. This means expanding our own energy production in all areas that are economically feasible. Technology has been making this safer and requiring the use of less “platforms” out in the ocean. I think Obama made a wise decision.” J.K.T. “Mr. Obama will do as he pleases with or without my approval. He’s already proven he is out for himself and not the American people, or should I say he’s out to help those persons he owes favors to and has in his back pocket. The only good thing coming up ... he won’t see a second term in office!” Florence, Ky. “I’ve heard there is a law that shut this drilling down years ago it is expiring. So it seems he really isn’t doing anything.” M.C. “Obama made that decision about offshore drilling purely to help his sagging poll numbers. He knows that exploring and drilling for oil and gas is very popular with the American people. “But he also knows that his administration has many loopholes that can be used down the road to prevent drilling in those very same areas. “This is very deceptive, but something I have come to expect from him. And, in a related action, which did not get nearly the same amount of press, he put other areas off limits for exploration. “Our continued national decision to ignore much of our oil and gas reserves and to fail to produce more nuclear energy is tragic. “It will produce higher energy costs, higher unemployment, and higher inflation, but far worse, it may cost American lives if we ever get into a war where our overseas energy sources are denied us. This is the definition of insanity.” T.H. “The U.S. Is critically dependent on foreign oil and gets jerked

We have untapped oil resources in our coastal waters that could reduce our dependence. “What’s not to like, as long as the exploration is done in an environmentally responsible way? How can we let ourselves starve to death in the middle of a buffet line?” F.S.D.
“Yes! I believe we should be doing much more to wean ourselves totally off foreign oil.” G.G. “If President Obama actually did open more coastal waters for oil and gas exploration that’s good news. However, I heard claims that while he gave more with one hand he reduced even more with the other. “American companies have the know-how to safely recover oil from the ocean depths without harming the environment. They can also do the same in the Alaskan wilderness.” R.V. “The only valid reason is that he is placating the Republicans in Congress. While I personally am not against legitimate drilling in known preserves, the amount of oil is negligible to the total we use. This may take some of the focus off greater efficiencies and renewable alternatives.” J.Z. “I never thought I would find myself agreeing with any decision made by Mr. Obama, but in this case, I do. We must not overlook any potential source of energy at this point in time, and if this can be done with minimal impact on the environment, I’m all for it.” Bill B. “I agree wholeheartedly! But only if all drilling operations, contracts and – most importantly – employees are issued to companies and people in the United States. “Minimizing our dependence on foreign oil suppliers should be a very high priority for us until we can begin developing alternate sources of energy. “When plans were made to open huge wind-powered energy fields out west, I was horrified to learn the U.S. companies issued these enormous contracts farmed most of the work building the giant windmills to overseas companies and their (cheaper?) employees. No large contracts for this sort of project should be issued without strict regulations guaranteeing that all work – development, manufacturing, assembly and installation – will be done by U.S. companies and U.S. employees.” M.M.

Schickel leads the way for licensure legislation in Kentucky When people ask me what I had to do to become an orthotist or a prosthetist I have always told them “Nothing.” However, I did choose to attend a post-bachelor program for prosthetics and then for orthotics, complete a one-year residency for each discipline and pass examinations certifying that I have reached a certain level of competency. Unfortunately, this has been voluntary. To many people’s surprise, orthotists, prosthetists and pedorthists (the individuals that fabricate and fit custom braces, artificial limbs and foot care products) are not required to meet any minimum educational or training requirements to practice in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Currently, there are only 12 other states in the U.S. that have established licensure requirements for the orthotic and prosthetic profession. Ohio passed legislation to establish licensure for the profession in 2001. Licensure of the orthotic and
prosthetic profession helps provide patient protection by establishing minimum educational and professional standards to practice. It also establishes a pathAnthony way to prevent Ward those from continuing to practicing Community who have providRecorder ed injurious or guest poor care. columnist On April 1, legislation to establish licensure for orthotist, prosthetist and pedorthist overcame its final legislative hurdle when it was passed by the House of Representatives. It is currently waiting for final approval by Gov. Steve Beshear. Sen. John Schickel of Boone, Kenton and Gallatin counties sponsored the legislation this year. The legislation was also supported by Sen. Katie Kratz Stine of Campbell
Growth and jobs equals economic stability and less tax The latest Kentucky unemployment numbers have been released and once again, Campbell County has the highest unemployment rate (11.4 percent) of the three Northern Kentucky counties. While all of Northern Kentucky has been hurt in this recession, why does Campbell County get hit harder than Boone or Kenton Counties? I believe it is because the current leadership in our county does little to encourage business to locate and stay here. In fact, by repeatedly increasing taxes at the maximum allowable rate, they are driving away commerce and job opportunities to other areas in Greater Cincinnati, the United States and abroad. As your Judge-Executive, one of my highest priorities would be to set the stage for economic growth in Campbell County. Our economic efforts must shift from passive to aggressive. We cannot have economic sustainability only by being a county of buyers, we must also be a county of producers. By showcasing our industrial zones in Claryville, Silver Grove, Melbourne, Wilder, and Newport, we can go after businesses versus watching them go to Boone and Kenton
counties. When it comes to job creation, our efforts must be centered on the production, medical, service, and technological industries. We must also look at how we can facilitate growth with Northern Kentucky University in terms of their campus and surrounding communities. We can help NKU in their efforts to support regional employers with their graduating students. We must also cultivate a growing relationship with existing industrial entities so they know we are their long-term partners. This is especially important when it comes to small businesses on main arteries like US 27, AA Highway, the Fort Thomas business district and on the riverfront. It is very important to work with these small businesses in order to retain jobs for the county. We must also work to help and assist existing employers such as Sarah Lee, IPSCO Steel, Trauth Dairy, LaFarge, and St. Elizabeth/St. Luke to ensure they have room to grow at every level. When it comes to economic renewal, there are important philosophical differences between my strategy and the economic record of our judge-executive. If you look

The legislation was not without debate on both the Senate and House floors and these leaders all stood and fought for what was right. After more than four years of working with other professionals in our state to pass this legislation it is a great relief to see it pass. I have much appreciation for the hard work of the individuals mentioned above who made passage of this legislation a reality. I would also like to say thank you to retired Sen. Dick Roeding who initiated this legislation for us four years ago. Despite serving a small portion of their constituents they fought to see this through and for that I am grateful.

I believe guest that government columnist shouldn't take advantage of Campbell County home-owners and businesses by using your tax dollars to fund plush new government offices. In 1819, Chief Justice John Marshall wrote: "An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation." You and I know this to be true, but with each passing year, my opponent continues to push you to that limit by excessively raising many county taxes. As your judgeexecutive, I would put an end to these steep tax increases on homes and business as part of my larger plan to bring jobs back to Campbell County. The bottom line is that we need less tax and more taxpayers. Kevin Sell is a Republican candidate for Campbell County judge-executive.

Bellevue resident Patrick Dougherty, a self-employed studio potter, works on a fireplace mantle he made.
Bellevue potter recognized in book of international artists For more than 30 years, Bellevue resident Patrick Doughtery has been following his true calling, creating art. The self-employed studio potter was recently recognized as one of 38 noted international artists in the book “Masters: Earthernware,” curated by Matthias Ostermann. “It really just blows me away to be included in the book,” Doughtery said. “There are artists in there from France and Belgium and then you see my bio where is says based in Kentucky.” Doughtery said he has spent years and put in a lot of hard work creating his artwork. While working as a social worker in 1974, Doughtery decided to take
an art class at Northern Kentucky University for fun. Since no painting classes were open, he took a ceramics class. “That was 30 something years ago, and I’m still doing it,” Doughtery said. “I realized my true calling, and the rest is history.” After going back to school to get his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts, Doughtery taught ceramics at various universities for years. Now, his time is taken up with his studio art, which includes pottery and architectural work like sinks and fireplace mantles. Doughtery also shows his work across the country and teaches workshops at various places.

Noah’s Ark Farm & Petting Zoo, in its 12th year as a haven for animals big and small, opens April 15 this year with an unplanned attraction of a wildlife rookery of a nesting colony of great blue herons. Wanda Wanner and Buddy Teke keep the farm at 3269 Koehler Road in California. The animals are a collection of everything from bison and an African Watusi steer with horns that are wider than a grown man’s arms can reach from finger tip to finger tip to baby goats, sheep and rabbits. There are also pony rides, a shaded picnic area, and a gold and blue parrot that sometimes performs tricks for the public, Wanner said. But, the nesting colony of great blue herons in the tops of trees lining one of the farm fields has been a surprise that’s been growing in recent years, she said. The number of nests has grown over several years from five to 14 and finally 21 nests by this spring, she said. Each February, the birds return for the warmer months to the farm, she said. They’re making an observation post that won’t disturb the birds too much, so visitors can go out to the field and observe the herons at distance, Wanner said. The birds can be seen from the spot with the naked eye, but bring binoculars for a better view, she said. The baby herons usually hatch by April and start taking first flights around the end of June or early July, Wanner said. The farm also has its own bird attractions including a pair of emus, peacocks, pheasants, doves, turkeys and silky chickens, but to see the herons up close is majestic, Wanner said. “This year the herons are kind of adding to the bird watchers who like to come,” she said. A regular attraction for visiting children are the baby goats, sheep, bunnies, chicks and other animals
Buddy Teke, co-owner of Noah’s Ark Farm & Petting Zoo in California, cares and feeds for many of the animals including Cindy the bison.

Teke said sometimes visitors witness the birth of an animal, and that’s often a special moment for them. As for variety of animals, the emus, a bird as big as an ostrich, are one of the oldest species of birds on the planet, Teke said. And the fourhorned sheep is a line of sheep mentioned in the Bible as spotted sheep and are also sometimes called Jacob’s sheep, he said. Churches, daycare groups, schools and groups of people with disabilities often come to the farm, but so do grandparents with their grandchildren on unscheduled vis-
its, Teke said. Teke said he enjoys seeing the animals like the water buffalo play in the fields, and seeing the animals up close is an experience people can’t get just by watching television. Seeing the children interact with the young and old animals is one of the reasons Wanner said she enjoys operating Noah’s Ark. But one of the most popular attractions with children isn’t one of the more exotic animals, she said. “The kids spend the whole day playing with the baby kittens,” Wanner said.

April 15, 2010
A twist on the ‘Ten Commandments of Marriage’ The Rev. Ed Young, senior pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, wrote a book titled “The Ten Commandments of Marriage.” I never read the Rev. Young’s book but I enjoyed his commandment titles. I expand on them with my own reflections. 1. Thou shalt not be a selfish pig. The worst enemy in any relationship is our selfishness – that my feelings count and yours don’t; that you are here to serve me and make me happy; that if anything goes wrong, it’s your fault, not mine. The opposite of selfishness is love. A good indication that love is present is when the welfare and satisfaction of another person comes to mean as much to me as my own. 2. Though shalt cut the apron stings. When a wedding takes place in a church, another ceremony takes place right below in the couples psychic basement. The groom unconsciously transfers to his bride the qualities and
faults of his mother – and expects to find them hereafter in his bride. The bride, transfers over to the groom the qualities and faults of Father Lou her dad. The Guntzelman u n c o n s c i o u s cerePerspectives basement mony is not ideal. The most ideal situation happens when each spouse recognizes these parental transferences, cuts loose from them, and works to come to know the uniqueness of their own spouse. 3. Thou shalt continually communicate. The average married couple actively communicate about 27 minutes a week. Yet, “Unless we are fully known, we cannot be fully loved.” And how else do we become authentically known unless we let the other know of our fears, hopes, dreams, anxieties, insufficiencies, etc.?
We’re usually afraid because we expect rejection. That’s a possibility. But the risk is worth taking to finally come to be loved for who and what we are. 4. Thou shalt make conflict thy ally. Disagreements are not catastrophes. They are to be expected occasionally when two separate and unique persons form a relationship. Differences are opportunities to communicate, understand, compromise and solidify the relationship. The absence of conflict demonstrates that either the relationship isn’t important enough or that both individuals are too insecure to risk disagreement. 5. Though shalt avoid the quicksand of debt. Money, especially in our culture, can become a bone of contention, an instrument of power, a constant worry, an expression of selfishness, and a destroyer of more important realities. Prudent spending flows from a responsible maturity on the part of both spouses.
6. Thou shalt flee sexual temptations – online and otherwise. Sexual pleasure is wonderful, but it speaks of spiritual and personal realities far more profound than feeling good. To seek sexual pleasure independently of my spouse and my sense of commitment to her/him, is more an adolescent trait than that of an adult. The interpenetration of hearts and souls requires lifelong fidelity. 7. Thou shalt forgive your mate 490-plus times. The 490 number comes from the biblical admonition to forgive not only seven times, but seventy times seven. One of marriages primary purposes is to teach us how to forgive. It is a manifestation of love. 8. Thou shalt keep the home fires burning. Building a good marriage and a good log fire are similar. At first, the paper and kindling make a brilliantly burning blaze. Then the first blaze dies down and you wonder if the fire will fizzle out and leave you in the
dark. You blow on it and fan it for all you’re worth. Sometimes the smoke billows out and almost chokes you or brings tears to your eyes. But if the materials are good and you invest enough time and energy and interest, the solid logs catch and the fire continues. 9. Thou shalt begin again and again. Nothing in this world that is worthwhile occurs suddenly. If a solid love relationship is really desired and valued, we are willing to go for it again and again. 10. Thou shalt build a winning team. It takes two to build a successful marriage, but only one to destroy it. All of the above are seen as teamwork issues by both spouses. And a good team reaches the goal.

ing. In addition, the builder has agreed to re-grade the backyard and has now scrubbed the brick so the white substance has been removed. To make sure the new house you’re considering was built properly, I suggest you hire a home inspector certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors. Hire an ASHI Certified home inspector for a new home just as you would before buying an existing home. The inspector needs to check for problems and, and depending on the severity of what’s found, you may
decide to set aside some money in an escrow account at the closing. The builder will only get that money when he makes the repairs. If he fails to make the corrections within a specified time, the money should go to you so you can get the repairs made. Finally, whenever you buy or sell a house I always recommend you get your own lawyer to protect you. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

due to the grade of the yard, I have a swamp out here for at least a week at a time,” said Frisby. “It became a problem and I let them know. They came out, looked at it, and told me the grade works. Basically, they’re going to keep it how it is,” he said. Frisby told the builder he contacted me and said now the builder is much more cooperative. The company has agreed to hire an engineer to assess the driveway and sidewalk problem. The company will now rely on the engineer to come up with a proposal to keep the concrete from collaps-
trucks and just regular cars. Gravity is going to collapse it.” he said. Frisby complained, “The builder just plans to shovel gravel underneath my driveway and that’s how they’re going to fix it. I’m not happy with that at all.” He said that gravel needs to be compacted in order to properly support the concrete. Another concern is a white chalk-like substance that’s appeared in many areas on the brick around the house. Frisby wants to know what that substance is, what’s caused it, and how to get rid of it for good. Yet another issue concerns the grading of the backyard. When it rains, water pools in the yard and doesn’t drain away. “After any rain or snow,

There should be compacted gravel underneath the concrete,” said Frisby’s father. “It’s just a matter of time before all this just collapses from the weight of vehicles,

The warm weather is bringing out homebuyers and new home sales are expected to be up this year. But, if you’re in the market for a new house you need to know how to protect yourself before you buy. Josh Frisby bought a brand new house in Morrow and moved in last December. Although he loves the house, he says the builder has been reluctant to correct problems he’s found. “The house is great, but obviously there are some issues that need to be dealt with. I’m trying to give the builder the benefit of the doubt to take care of these issues,” said Frisby. “Some things they are taking care of, and some things they’re giving me the runaround on. They’re

Roll out a tasty teatime with asparagus
I was right in the middle of making bean soup from leftover Easter ham when I got the call from friends Butch and Char Castle. “We’re going morel hunting – want us to pick you up?” Within five minutes, I was waiting at the edge of the driveway with my favorite morel-hunting basket in hand. (Yes, I did turn off the bean soup). Now I can’t tell you where we looked, since it’s as secret as knowing where to find ginseng, but I will tell you it was one vigorous workout, climbing up to the crest of the wooded hill. We found everything BUT morels: wild flowers in abundance: spring beauties, bloodroot, trilliums, violets, phlox, Dutchmen’s breaches, and wild edibles like garlic mustard, onions, and ramps (wild leeks). It was just the mental spring tonic I needed. (And we will go back – we morel hunters never give up). When I got home, I found a bonus near the fencerow: wild asparagus. I

added that to what I picked out of our asparagus patch and plan to m a k e t h e s e yummy asparagus rolls.
Promont Museum’s asparagus rolls
Just looking at the photo will have you running to the kitchen to make these. Mary Ann Benoski, tea coordinator at the Milford, Ohio, museum, shared this recipe. “One of my favorite sandwich recipes this time of year,” she said. Mary Ann and staff have afternoon teas at Promont House and volunteers prepare the food. Beautifully presented on fine china, their afternoon tea is not to be missed. They provide a docent guided tour included in the price of the tea ($20; luncheon $25). Mary Ann said
tea cuisine “includes something chocolate, something crunchy and something gooey.” You’ll have a memorable time taking tea at this Victorian mansion once occupied by Ohio Gov. John Pattison and family, and the profits from the teas help the upkeep of the museum. To make reservations, call 513-248-0324 or log onto www.milfordhistory.net.
14 asparagus spears steamed tender-crisp in salted water, set aside on paper towels. 5 oz. extra sharp Cheddar, grated coarse 5 oz. Pepper Jack, grated coarse 3 ⁄4 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄4 cup finely diced bottled roasted red pepper, and reserve enough 2-inch slices for garnish on sandwich folds. (Rinse and pat dry all first) Combine everything but asparagus in a mixing bowl with hand held mixer set on medium-low speed.
14 slices Pepperidge Farm white bread (crust removed) Place slices of bread between sheets of waxed paper and flatten slightly with rolling pin. Spread each slice with a rounded tablespoon of cheese mixture, top with asparagus spear (trimmed the length of bread slice from corner to corner). Fold opposite corners together over spear overlapping and garnish with two strips of roasted red peppers making an “X,” sealing down corners of bread slice. If necessary use tooth pick to secure until serving and cover all sandwiches with moist paper towels until served. Chilling helps to tighten the flattened rolls.
Panini with mozzarella, prosciutto and peppers

She believes that the agitation cats exhibit during thunderstorms is not necessarily from fear, but more of a sense of protectiveness of the house. â€œOur energy can also affect how they respond,â€? she admits. â€œWe can transfer our feelings to them. I see it all the time. People come in here and ask questions about their catsâ€™ behavior, and I find that there is something going on in their own lives, health related or work related and they realize that they are transmitting that information to their pets. After all, their role in our lives is to absorb some of our stuff.â€? Do you have any story ideas? Iâ€™d like to hear them as well as see your pet photos.

the dog knows the fear is going to begin again and the behavior is then trained into the dog.â€? Owners need to be able to show their pets what is and is not acceptable by example. If a pet reacts to a loud clap of thunder, she says that you must correct that immediately. â€œTell them to lie down, thatâ€™s enough. If you donâ€™t allow them to overreact, that is how the animal will continue to behave. Make sure you are relaxed, think about your own behavior and body language is saying to the dogs.â€? â€œAnd,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s not just undesirable behavior that deserves attention. You should reinforce desired behavior with food, verbal or physical praise.â€? Most of what the experts told me covered canine, not feline behavior, so I called Cheryl Franklin, owner of Confetti Cats in Mt. Lookout (www.confetti cats.com). She has owned cats since grade school and is considered by many to be an expert in the area. Through the years, she has had several fearful felines. â€œThe best thing that I have found,â€? she said. â€œIs to put them in a part of the house where they donâ€™t feel the storm. That means a

The event will be held: Saturday, April 17 at 10 a.m. at the Ralph Mussman Sports Complex in Newport. Cincinnati Reds mascot â€œRosie Redâ€? will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. The Florence Freedom mascot â€œLibertyâ€? will be in attendance from 10 a.m. to noon. There will be an ice cream truck on site and the concession stand for the Ralph Mussman Sports complex will be open. Pitch Hit and Run is the Official Skills Competition of Major League Baseball.

at the air. But, what about the owners whose pets are still bothered by storms? What can we do to comfort them as we go into thunderstorm season? Nipperâ€™s vet, Aaron Stamper, DVM of Highland Heights Animal Hospital (www.petwow.com) suggests putting your pet in a place in the house where they canâ€™t watch the storm; preferably in a spot that has as much sound proofing as possible. â€œThere is evidence to suggest that dogs and cats can sense when a storm is coming,â€? he said. â€œMost likely from barometric pressure change, and so anxiety sets in from past experiences.â€? It is the sound, he believes, that causes most of the petsâ€™ anxiety. That would be why Nipperâ€™s reaction to storms has changed since he lost his hearing. â€œThe sound of thunder extends from the highest to the lowest frequency,â€? Stam-
effective making it not desirable when a quick storm pops up and Valium is not great for storms that last long into the night as it often wears off. There are some other tricyclic anti-depressant drugs like Elavil and Xanax. Karen Pilis, behaviorist for All Creatures Animal Hospital (www.all-creatures.com) in Amelia, finds that there are two versions of thunderstorm phobia. â€œThe first is caused by the owner,â€? she said. â€œThe second is an actual phobia from the pressure and noise of a storm that the owner has no contributing factors to.â€? For example, she explains, â€œTwo dogs I adopted at the age of 10 came to me with the phobia and no matter what I did I couldnâ€™t change it. The ones I have had since puppies have never had storm phobias. Only the ones owned by someone previously have had it. The way that a dog behaves during a storm has everything to do with the ownerâ€™s reactions. â€œYou gasp and the dog wonders what the problem is. The fear transfers to them and then we reinforce that fear because we comfort the dog and we pet them. So every time a storm happens,

KaBOOOOOMMMMMM! A clap of thunder rattled the house. â€œLady! Lady! Woof, woof, woof! Let me out, let me out, NOW!â€? Nipper arfed impatiently scratching at the door. â€œWhy?â€œ I asked suspiciously, narrowing my eyes, â€œJust so you can go out on the porch to run around, bark like a nut-case and annoy the neighbors?â€? â€œWell, yeah,â€? he admitted, prancing about. â€œCâ€™mon, thereâ€™s a storm out there; Iâ€™ve gotta go show it whoâ€™s boss.â€? Sighing, I opened the door and watched in amusement as our 14-and-threefourths-year-old, arthritic dog ran back and forth, barking at the top of his Cocker-Spaniel lungs. Spring, and its thunderstorms, used to be a major trauma at our house, causing Nipper to shiver and cower. That changed last year, when he went deaf. No longer able to hear the loud claps of thunder, his fear dissipated and was replaced by excitement. Now he loves stormy weather; happily wagging his tail and sniffing
per said. â€œAnd since dogs hear better than we do it stands to reason that pets would be more sensitive to the loud noise created by storms.â€? Stamper, who owns several dogs, has successfully used ear plugs on his own pets to help keep them calm. â€œThey are easy to put in,â€œ he said. â€œSafe, comfortable and easy to remove. â€œMost ear plugs are designed to drastically reduce the noise of firearms which is similar to the frequency and decibel level of most storms.â€? How about medications? Even though it would be preferred not to use them, he says that tranquilizing medications are probably the most widely accepted means of curbing the effects of storms or fireworks for pets. The problem is, it is difficult to control the timing. You canâ€™t predict exactly when a storm will hit and the medication needs enough time to take effect before it does. According to Stamper the most commonly used drugs are Acepromazine, a long acting tranquilizer lasting six to 12 hours and Valium that lasts two to four hours for most pets. Acepromazine takes about two hours to be

How to understand your weeds better Spring can be very frustrating for homeowners, especially when a crop of dandelions or clover pops up in the lawn. And that’s when the neighbors start giving you that “take care of your flowering weeds” stare. So before you try to get rid of them, first try to understand them.
At one time, there were no dandelions in the United States. They were brought here by the Europeans to serve many purposes. The dandelion was and still is a workhorse of a plant! The roots, which can get an inch thick and grow deeper into the ground than tree roots, were harvested and boiled for making a tea used for medicinal purposes. The foliage was grown for harvesting and eaten as you would any other type of greens. The unopened flower buds were eaten along with the foliage, and the opened yellow flowers were used for
making dandelion wine, as well as battered and deep fried for a little snack (and still are!). But unfortunately the dandelion escaped from the garden and has become a nuisance in the lawn – a nuisance only if you don’t like flowering plants in the turf. So, what is the best way to get rid of dandelions in the lawn? Keep the lawn good and thick. In most cases, where dandelions are growing, the lawn has thinned. Along sidewalks and driveways, low compacted areas, and poorly maintained lawns are where they show up the worst. If dandelions do pop up in the lawn, dig them out by cutting the root 6 to 8 inches below soil level. Spring treatments using a water soluble weed killer may work – treat when the flowers are in the puffball stage. (Treating in the fall is actually the best time to control dandelions and most weeds.)
ST A F THE
free). Except for when it’s flowering, clover is usually greener than the lawn, earthworms really like the soil when clover is present, it is disease and drought tolerant, and it is avoided by most turf pests. Once again, clover flowers are an important source of nectar for honeybees and bumblebees. Those flowers can also be picked and tossed in with your salads. Like with most “weeds,” when clover shows up, it says something is happening to cause the lawn to thin out and allow the clover to grow. So, make corrections to the soil in those areas to encourage the lawn to grow thicker. A thicker lawn means less clover and other assorted weeds. To control clover (in addition to having a thicker lawn) try applying corn gluten meal on a “multiyear program” to stop clover seeds from growing, as well as adding nitrogen back to your soil.
Note: Dandelion flowers are an important early bloomer for honeybees. If you have dandelions, let them flower for the bees, then try to control them later. And if you find you still can’t get rid of those dandelions in your lawn, remember – if you can’t beat ’em, eat ’em!
Although clover is actually a good plant, most folks don’t want it (flowering plants unwanted in the turf). Clover is a tough perennial that multiplies by roots and by seed – those seeds can lie dormant for years before growing. Once established it can send runners through the lawn in search of other thinner areas to grow. At one time clover seed was actually added to grass seed mixes in newer lawns. It took the nitrogen out of the air and made it available for the grass in the soil (actually feeds the lawn for
Clover patches can also be hand pulled out of the grass, Ron Wilson and works In the quite nicely garden in smaller yards. Combine these with good lawn care practices and you should be able to suppress the clover over a couple years, “naturally.” If you need to get rid of it now, spot treat the clover a weed killer that will kill clover but not the lawn. Clover is a tough, so make sure it’s listed on the label. Do not spray the entire lawn – simply spot treat the clover patches as needed. Spray for clover in mid to late spring, but the best time for clover control is spraying in the fall! Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc. Garden Stores and is the garden expert for 55KRC-AM and Local 12. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org

Library accepting applications for new board member The Campbell County Public Library is seeking applications for an opening on its board of trustees. This is a non-paid, volunteer position. Members of the libraryâ€™s board of trustees are appointed to serve four-year terms. By law, board members must represent all areas of the county. In keeping with that law, the newly appointed board member needs to be from the Alexandria and southern Campbell County area. Dr. Ann Painter,
president of the board representing Alexandria and southern Campbell County, has served the maximum of two, four-year terms. Her current term ends Sept. 30, 2010. People with occupations or interests in areas of business, finance and banking would be especially beneficial. â€œThis is an exciting time for the library. Library usage is at an alltime high, our operations are strong and we have dedicated
employees. To be at the helm of a healthy library system that is enthusiastically supported by patrons and businesses is very rewarding,â€? said JC Morgan, director. Applicants should submit letters of interest and a resume to Library Director JC Morgan at the Cold Spring Branch, 3920 Alexandria Pike, Cold Spring, KY 41076. Applications will be accepted through April 30. Interviews will be conducted in May. By law, the
names of two nominees will be forwarded to Kentucky State Librarian Wayne Onkst. The approved recommendations will be forwarded to Campbell County Judge Executive Steve Pendery, who will select one of the two names that have been submitted. The term for the new board of trustee member begins Oct. 1, 2010. The board meets at 4:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of every month. Meetings last about two
hours. Board of trustee responsibilities include reading prepared materials prior to the meetings, reviewing and approving the policies and budget of the library; and long-range planning. Trustees are expected to be advocates for the library. Other current board members are Don Grosenbach of Cold Spring, Rebecca Kelm of Fort Thomas, Angela Siddall of Newport and Dr. Judy Voelker of Bellevue.

Once the screening is performed, results will be tallied and discussed with each participant including information on how they may be able to reduce their risk for heart disease. Participants can take their screening information with them to share with their own health care providers if they choose. According to Dottie Baker, an advanced registered nurse practitioner practicing in Northern Kentucky who is coordinating the cardiac screening event, the state association wanted to give back to the community during its conference by helping the public recognize the risk factors associated with heart disease and how they possibly could reduce these factors in their own lives.

Emergency prep training in Campbell County The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management will be hosting a Implementing Continuity of Operations Planning Course April 21-22, in Highland Heights. This training will be delivered by the University of Maryland’s, Center for Health and Homeland Security (CHHS). Participants in this training will gain information and materials to train state and local, administrators and managers in the development and implementation of COOP plans in their communities as part of catastrophic event preparedness.
The major goal of this course is to teach key local, office holders, emergency management and public safety officials within their jurisdictions to write effective COOP plans that support the National Response Plan (NRP) and ensure that essential governmental functions, programs, services, systems, and personnel continue to operate during and after a disabling natural disaster or terrorist attack. This course incorporates a discussion based exercise that engages the participants in a hands-on learning experience. This is an invaluable instructional
tool that draws on the relative backgrounds of the participants to create a dynamic environment in which they must apply the principles of the course to a set of decisions that are likely to occur in a COOP Event scenario. Anyone wishing to attend this training is urged to register online at (https://ky.train.org/DesktopShell.aspx) reference course number 1019941. For more information contact William R. Turner, Director of the Campbell County office of Emergency Management at 859-547-3150.

CITY OF SOUTHGATE, KENTUCKY REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING AND ON COMPLIANCE AND OTHER MATTERS BASED ON AN AUDIT OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS PERFORMED IN ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNMENT AUDITING STANDARDS Mayor and the City Council City of Southgate Southgate, Kentucky We have audited the ﬁnancial statements of the City of Southgate (the “City”) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2009 and have issued our report thereon dated November 17, 2009. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to ﬁnancial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Internal Control Over Financial Reporting In planning and performing our audit, we considered the City’s internal control over ﬁnancial reporting as a basis for designing our auditing procedures for the purpose of expressing our opinion on the ﬁnancial statements, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the City’s internal control over ﬁnancial reporting. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on the effectiveness of the City’s internal control over ﬁnancial reporting. A control deﬁciency exists when the design or operation of a control does not allow management or employees, in the normal course of performing their assigned functions, to prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis. A signiﬁcant deﬁciency is a control deﬁciency, or a combination of control deﬁciencies, that adversely affects the entity’s ability to initiate, authorize, record, process, or report ﬁnancial data reliably in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles such that there is more than a remote likelihood that a misstatement of the City’s ﬁnancial statements that is more than inconsequential will not be prevented or detected by the City’s internal control. A material weakness is a signiﬁcant deﬁciency, or a combination of signiﬁcant deﬁciencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the ﬁnancial statements will not be prevented or detected by the entity’s internal control. Our consideration of internal control was for the limited purpose described in the ﬁrst paragraph of this section and would not necessarily identify all deﬁciencies in internal control that might be signiﬁcant deﬁciencies or material weaknesses. We did not identify any deﬁciencies in internal control that we consider to be material weaknesses, as deﬁned above. However, we identiﬁed the following deﬁciency in internal control that we consider to be a signiﬁcant deﬁciency. While management is certainly knowledgeable in regard to the amounts reported in the ﬁnancial statements, identifying and applying new authoritative guidance in regard to certain elements reported in the ﬁnancial statements is outside the scope of management. At present the City lacks the required expertise on ﬁnancial reporting necessary to successfully apply generally accepted accounting principles in regards to drafting the ﬁnancial statements and related disclosures. Compliance and Other Matters As part of obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the City’s ﬁnancial statements are free of material misstatements, we performed tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts, and grant agreements, noncompliance with which could have a direct and material effect on the determination of ﬁnancial statement amounts. However, providing an opinion on compliance with those provisions was not an objective of our audit, and accordingly, we do not express such an opinion. The results of our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards. This report is intended solely for the information and use of management, City Council, others within the entity, and federal awarding agencies and pass-through entities and is not intended to be and should not be used by anyone other than these speciﬁed parties.

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…
Hilton Head Island, SC
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.

Time to ‘Rock the Tot’ Fifty-one Bar Louie locations around the country, including Newport on the Levee, will host the 3rd annual “Rock the Tot” tater tot eating contest Thursday, April 22. Each location’s contest will begin at 8 p.m. and crown their very own “Rock the Tot” champion. Competitors will face off regionally in a challenge to eat as many tater tots possible in six minutes. Contestants are allowed to have any drink of their choice during that time and dip the tater tots in the drink before consuming. At the end of the six minutes a winner will be declared the “Rock the Tot” champion. All winners will be declared locally, with Bar Louie America verifying the results after the regional competitions are completed and deciding on a national champion. Multiple tater tots consumed in just six minutes will be rewarded with more
than just bragging rights. All 51 regional champions will receive a $250 Bar Louie gift card, a complimentary party for up to 20 friends, a champion trophy, T-shirt and most importantly, free tater tots for one year. The national champion out of all the locations will win a $500 gift card to Bar Louie and Bar Louie gift package. Almost 250,000 tater tots were consumed nationwide during last year’s competition. The overall national champion from Easton, Ohio consumed four pounds and five ounces of tater tots in the six minutes. Participants should arrive early to register by 7:30 p.m. and are encouraged to bring fans and get creative with costumes. In addition, for those who want to practice, Bar Louie will be offering $1.50 “practice baskets” of tater tots between April 19-22.
