FORT THOMAS — The Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame will have its second induction ceremony and concert at Tower Park on June 5. John Mendell, of Fort Thomas, a board member for the hall of fame, said the volunteer group found a perfect fit in Fort Thomas to have induction ceremonies. “There’s a museum to display the artifacts, and you’ve got a concert venue next door,” Mendell said. The first induction ceremony, on June 2, 2013, was at Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington. Organizers are setting up a second-floor exhibit in the Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum that will open at noon June 5 and continue to be part of museum exhibits through Sept. 27. The museum, at 940 Cochran Ave., Fort Thomas, is open

from noon-4 p.m. each Wednesday through Sunday. “We’re going to have an exhibit in the museum, old pictures and posters, and some of their instruments, too,” he said. Induction ceremonies on June 5 will be at 6 p.m. ahead of a 7 p.m. concert. Admission to the concert is free, but donations will be accepted. Some members of the 2014 inductee class, as they are able and willing, will perform in the concert and former inductees will join in a jam session afterward, Mendell said. “We’re going to have an exhibit in the museum, old pictures and posters, and some of their instruments, too,” he said. Since Rosemary Clooney was inducted last year and members of the family were unable to attend, someone from the family will come to this year’s ceremony, Mendell said. The family will also send a

The 2014 inductees class is: » Bill Hinds, a Fort Thomas native who played drums for Pure Prairie League. » Mike Hodges, of Florence, who has played drums for Adrian Belew and David Bowie. » Gary Burbank, of Alexandria, hosted a nationally syndicated radio show under his name on 700 WLW in Cincinnati and is a musician who plays blues songs on the slide guitar. » Mickey Foellger, of Fort Thomas, a former Campbell Circuit Court judge who plays drums in The New Lime Band, and previously played in the band Wheels. » Panny Sarakatsannis, of Fort Thomas, a bass player in the Northern Kentucky area who played at the original Guys and Dolls night club in See MUSIC, Page A2

ALEXANDRIA — Two men are on the Democratic primary ballot for Campbell County’s Constable in District three. Competing in the primary are former constable Jim Delaney and incumbent Jim Peluso. Republican Roy T. Usleaman will face the winner in November during the general election. Delaney was elected constable of District 2 in 2008, before redistricting put him into District 3. The retired 57-year-old Bellevue resident served six years as a combat engineer in the U.S. Army after he received his GED through Newport High School. He and his wife, Patricia, have three adult sons. Delaney has a Facebook page for his campaign, under his name. He doesn’t think legislators should remove the office of constable. “Constables were around before the police department were. That used to be the law, and now they’re trying to get rid of them,” he said. “We serve papers sheriffs don’t serve. We’ll keep going back until we get them. Another thing, constables



can go anywhere in the state of Kentucky. We’re not bound to one area.” Peluso, a Democrat, is finishing his first term as constable, an office that exists to serve legal notices. In addition to serving as a Campbell County constable, the 67-year-old Newport resident manages rental properties, works as a country club golf ranger and operates three booths at the Florence Antique Mall. In 1976, Peluso was elected to the first of two four-year terms on Newport City Council. He then lost a 1984 bid for county commissioner, and after a 20year hiatus from public service, he unsuccessfully ran for county jailer in 2004. He attended Covington Latin School and graduated from Newport Catholic High School. Peluso went to Northern Kentucky Vocational School before See CAMPBELL, Page A2

Reception honors foster and adoptive parents By Melissa Stewart

NEWPORT — Melinda Mathis wanted to be a mom. So, a year ago, the Boone County resident decided to open up her home to two foster children – both babies. She said her life will never be the same. “It’s been a life-changing experience,” Mathis said. Mathis, 42, is a single foster mother, who plans to adopt. She was recognized as the Foster Parent of the Year recently at a reception honoring foster and adoptive parents. The Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services hosted the reception at the Syndicate in Newport. The event spotlighted 10

White. “This is a way for us to honor the families in our community and show how appreciative we are of them,” White said. “They are the unsung heroes. These are folks who work and have families, but who take the time to help kids in the community who are in need.” According to Mathis, the fosSee PARENTS, Page A2 Vol. 18 No. 2 © 2014 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

that plays into the test.” He is the son of Andrew and Na Young Campbell of Fort Clay Thomas Campbell and has a brother Henry, 7. He took the ACT at Highlands March 4. The ACT is used by colleges to measure how prepared students are to succeed in higher education. Campbell’s perfect score was the first for a Highlands student since Madeline Gates aced the ACT in 2012 in her junior year. Campbell said he spent several months “selfstudying” for the ACT and was helped by four weekends of an ACT boot camp program in February. Campbell wants to study biology or biomedical engineering in college and eventually work as a patent attorney. Andrew Campbell said his son’s achievement is wonderful. “It takes one of the variables out of the college search,” he said.

Hughes said she encourages individuals and families to consider foster, however, points out that it’s not for the faint of heart. “It’s been a lifestyle switch,” she said. “It’s shown us what we’re made of and what we can do.” For more information on fostering or adopting a child, visit the Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services website,

I don’t think it would ever fly,” he said. “I think the only issue is to fulfill your job to the letter of the law, and make sure everybody has their day in court who wishes to go to court.” Usleaman, a Republi-

can, has run for school board and constable previously, but has not been elected. The retired 72-yearold Newport resident graduated from Newport High School before entering the U.S. Air Force. He then worked at IBM for 32 years. He and his wife, Donna, have been married 52 years, and have two sons, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

passes for concerts around the world. Jerry Gifford of Dayton, a singer for the band Strange Brew, and a board member for the music hall of fame, said the idea is to recognize local musicians who have lived in Northern Kentucky and worked as a musician for 20 years, Gifford said. There are at least 350 names of people the board knows about who are eligible for the hall of fame, and they want peo-

ple to tell them about more potential honorees, he said. “You don’t have to be a star that made national headlines,” Gifford said. The group is also starting an NKY Music Legends Scholarship fund for student musicians at Northern Kentucky University, he said. “The plan has always been to recognize the musicians and put something back into the comnunity,” Gifford said.

Villa Hills has been fostering children for two years. They are ages 9, 11 and 14. Her adoption of them was finalized in February. For Hughes and her husband the rewards of parenting are priceless. “I guess I can say the best thing is what any parent would say about parenting. You get to see the kids blossom and that has been fun to watch,” she said. “You get to help them find things they’re passionate about.”

Democrats are the ballot for Campbell magistrate By Chris Mayhew

Being the justice of the peace/magistrate in District 1 in Campbell County is about being available to marry people, and both candidates in the May 20 primary election say they have the time. Democratic candidates Rajiim A. Gross of Fort Thomas and Ginger O. Paul of Highland

Ginger O. Paul

Rajiim A. Gross

Heights are seeking the position. No Republican has filed for the office. Unless a write-in challenger enters the race,

the winner of the primary will become the next justice. Kathy Pinelo of Wilder, the current District 1 justice of the peace/magistrate, is seeking election as the District 2 justice of the peace/magistrate position because of changes to the magisterial boundary lines by the county clerk’s office. Pinelo, a Democrat, is the only candidate on the ballot for District 2.

The job’s only two powers are the ability to marry people and to accept applications for people to be a notary public. Gross, who was medically retired from the U.S. Air Force after eight years of service, said he has the time and wants to continue to serve people. Gross said he served in a supply unit and was actively involved in committees dealing with supplies and logistics while

in the service. “I was upset that I was forced to retire, and I still want to do something for people,” he said. Gross said he stays busy as a neighborhood block watch captain on his street, Hollywoods Drive in Fort Thomas. Paul, who retired as a director of intellectual and developmental disabilities at NorthKey Community Care, said her availability and being

a generally caring person makes her qualified for the job. She said being married for 44 years and having a doctorate in educational psychology has provided experience in understanding people. She said it was her civic responsibility to stand up and offer to fill the position and offer her time. “I’m retired, and I have the availability,” she said.

The Licking Valley Antique Machinery Association annual tractor cruise is May 17 at the Grants Lick Baptist Church in Grants Lick. The church will supply breakfast at 9 a.m., with the tractor cruise to leave at 10. A ride-along wagon is available for anyone who

Bellevue schools has new superintendent By Melissa Stewart

BELLEVUE — Bellevue School’s Board of Education has named a new superintendent. The board unanimously hired Robb Smith, director of secondary education at Bullitt County Public Schools, on April 25. “I couldn’t be happier or more proud to work with such a great group of people and to be going to a place that’s so full of pride and community spirit,”


Smith said. He replaces Wayne Starnes, who retires this summer after serving as superintendent for 11 years. Smith has been in education

for 19 years. He started his career at Kenton County Schools as a middle school math teacher, served as a principal at Oldham County schools and has spent the last

two years in his current position at Bullitt schools. According to board chairman Dan Swope, Smith’s background is what set him apart from the other applicants. Swope said 41 resumes were received, with six interviewed, narrowed with the help of the Kentucky School Board Association. “We had some really good applicants, just outstanding,” Swope said. “But his background in curriculum was a big thing for us, that’s something we want to

build upon. Also, his personality fit ours just a little bit better.” Smith has signed a four-year contract with an annual salary of $115,000. The district will also pay for all of his health, dental and vision insurance, not to exceed $7,000 annually, and provide up to $2,500 in moving expenses. “My top goal is to listen and speak with as many people as possible to get a gauge of what everyone wants for the school system to create a vision with all voices in mind,” Smith said.

“Those voices include central office staff, teachers and administrators, community members, parents and most importantly the kids. I want to know what the students want from their experience here and where they want to go when they leave our doors.” Smith is married with two biological children and in the process of adopting two more children.

Burlington author releases book on basketball rivalry By Stephanie Salmons Contributor

BURLINGTON — Ryan Clark grew up a fan of Kentucky basketball. “It all started with my granddad,” the Burlington resident says. “I grew up in Louisville, but he says he got to me first, before any U of L fans could. So I grew up a UK fan and loved their basketball squad ever since then.” Clark, 34, has just published his second book on UK with friend Joe Cox, “Fightin’ Words: Kentucky vs. Louisville.” He and Cox had just finished their last book, “100 Things Wildcats Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die,” when they began to wonder what was next. Cox, 33, said the idea was one he had more than a decade ago. While Cox, who lives near and works in Bowling Green, is a Kentucky fan – he and Clark met watching a Kentucky football game while attending Western Kentucky University – he attended the University of Louisville law school and says he’s the “softer edge of the two.” Having lived in the city for three years, “I kind of have Louisville sympathies” and will root for the team – but not at the expense of UK. “Joe and I had both thought for a long time someone should

write a book about the UK and U of L basketball rivalry,” Clark said. “Not a biased fan book, but a true history book about the rivalry that just chronicled each game. We both thought we would love to read that.” Clark says a book like this had never been written before. “I personally know friends in the sportswriting business – people who are real journalism celebrities – who wanted to write this book but never did,” Clark said. “So Joe and I pitched the idea, and especially when Louisville won the national title last year, publishers got interested. This is the biggest rivalry in college basketball The emotion and the characters involved are second to

none. And it had to be written about.” The competition between the two teams, which meet Friday in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, is fierce. “The fans hate each other, the coaches hate each other and when they meet each year, the state almost boils over,” Clark said. “It’s the biggest thing in the state sports-wise this side of the Kentucky Derby.” According to Clark, they get into the stories behind the games. “We talk to players who have overcome addiction of all kinds, horrible family lives and other adversity,” he said. “Fans will love these kids, no matter who they root for.”

Campbell tennis heads toward bright future By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — They have a whole new team this year, but the Campbell County High School boys tennis team hopes for more success than the previous version. The Camels had a strong performance in the 2013 postseason, with a pair of 2013 graduates advancing to the state tournament. This year’s edition had a chance to surpass all that as

the 10th Region tournament began May 3 in Cynthiana. “I turned over my roster,” said head coach Jeremiah Sowards. “Most matches, I had a sixth-grader at singles, and five sophomores and a junior. That’s the youngest my roster has been in a long time.” The middle-schooler, Anderson McDowell, has been the No. 1 singles player for the team all year, and he started the regional as the No. 3 seed. Sophomores Mason Geiman and Jake Walters were the

three seed in doubles, and Dontay Hyatt and Hogan Oldiges the fifth seed. The top four finishers in each bracket advance to the state tournament May 14-17 in Lexington, with the team champion participating in the state team tournament as well. Conner Combs is Campbell’s second singles player in the tourney. Geiman and Walters reached the semifinals, which were set to be contested May 5, and earned a berth to the state tourney.

Campbell had a 7-8 record in dual matches for the year. “We played a lot of really tough teams in the Ninth Region,” Sowards said. “I’m really impressed with how good the Ninth Region is. They have some really solid teams top to bottom.” However the regional turns out, the Camels will have a lot to build on for next season. “Every one of these kids is brand new to varsity tennis. They may have played a few matches but no one had a full

season,” said Sowards, who had to adjust his coaching style this season. “I had to remember everything was a learning experience for them. And to really focus on the fundamentals so they had something to fall back on in matches. It was nice because I got to reteach some basics and get them into the program, understand why we’re doing things.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

NEWPORT — Unless they make another state tournament run, it appears that Newport Central Catholic’s current streak of consecutive 20-win seasons will end at three. This year started off rocky for a program just two years removed from a state quarterfinal appearance. The 8-19 Thoroughbreds are looking for a spark that can propel them to another deep tournament run. “We need to get some wins so that the players have some confidence heading into district play,” head coach Jeff Schulkens said. The ‘Breds came up with a big win over Dayton on May 1, snapping a 10-game losing streak. It appeared that the team was starting the new month fresh. Then, they dropped their next two games by identical 10-0 scores. NewCath did show signs of life in a 5-1 loss to Covington Catholic on May 5. Right now, building confidence is the biggest goal. “The players have continued to work hard, but lack confidence in their ability to be successful,” said Schulkens. “They need to start believing in themselves and their teammates.” Every win over the next two weeks will be a possible turning point. Each victory brings hope the Thoroughbreds are ready to turn this season around and get back to their winning ways. Unfortunately, they have not yet been able to string together consecutive wins since April 11-12. “There was a sense of relief

(after ending the10-game losing streak),” said Schulkens. “I was hoping we could build off that win but so far we have not.” This season has been a strain on the team’s veteran leaders. After winning 45 games over the past two seasons, including six postseason wins, the team’s six seniors expected to fare better in 2014. “It has been a challenge for them,” said Schulkens of his upperclassmen. “They have been asked to do more than last year and so far have not responded.” Freshman Spencer Pangallo has been a bright spot for the Thoroughbreds. The pitcher and infielder has played beyond his years and held his own against older competition. Even if the future looks promising, the Thoroughbreds are not yet See NCC, Page A6

ALEXANDRIA — Visitors to home football games hosted by Campbell County High School knew his voice. Greg Rose’s enthusiastic calls from the press box of big plays by his Camels were only surpassed by his enthusiastic actions to support the community in general. His memorable “That’s another Campbell County FIRST DOWNNNN!” only scratched the surface. “He made every play special,” Campbell County head football coach Steve Lickert said. “My personal favorite is every Friday night getting a text of the scoreboard. He’d say ‘Good job, coach. Congratulations!’ He’d greet me with a Gatorade when I walk off the field. When I first got here, he went out of his way to make me feel welcome. When he said if there’s anything I can do for you, let me know, he would actually do that.” Rose, an Alexandria resident, died April 25 and was laid to rest April 30. Rose, 52, was a 1979 graduate of Campbell County High School and a 1983 grad of Northern Kentucky University. He came back to his alma mater to not only be the PA voice, but work with area sports behind the scenes. He coached several youth sports including AAU basketball. He was an active church member who went to mission trips in Zimbabwe. “He was such a valuable as-

set to the high school and to Campbell County athletics,” said athletic director Steve Hensley. “He was such a great person, Rose infectious smile. Friday nights won’t be the same without him.” A former Camel running back himself, Rose had two sons play the position at CCHS in recent years, Grant and Zach. He also had two daughters with his wife of 30 years, Sherri (True) Rose - Danielle (Rose) Crafton and Haylee Rose. “He was just a guy that made Friday night an event in Alexandria. He did all the behind-the-scenes stuff, from getting the kid who’s doing the coin toss from the elementary school to making sure he knew how to say every kid’s name,” Lickert said. “He worked behind the scenes for everything. He was a great man and a great spokesman for the Campbell County community.” Hensley said he will be tough to replace and football games will be different. “His heart was all about the kids at Campbell County,” Hensley said. “What I’ll remember is how much he loved this community and how much this community loved him.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

River Monsters reach title game By Adam Turer

Can a local professional football team win a playoff game? The Northern Kentucky River Monsters earned opportunity to do just that by winning their final five regular season games, including a 36-24 win over Dayton May 3. The River Monsters clinched a berth in the CIFL South Division championship game, which will take place against the Marion Blue Racers in Marion, Ohio, on May 10. This playoff appearance was far from a given. The River Monsters weathered much early season adversity in their debut season in the CIFL. This was a roller coaster of a season. It began with the River Monsters quarterback Jared Lorenzen, the popular Highlands High School and University of Kentucky grad and Super Bowl champion, putting the team and the league on the map. His performance in the season opener quickly went viral. Unfortunately,

he broke his leg in the second game of the season. The River Monsters had to live up to inflated expectations without their star player and leader. Several young and hungry players stepped up, led by quarterback Antonio Davis and running back Maurice Douse. “These boys have overcome so much this year and deserve to be in the championship game,” said River Monsters owner Jill Chitwood. “I am so pleased and proud of how they have pulled together and have made such a statement with their play and we plan to make a tough run for the championship.” The team also endured an early season coaching change. Mike Goodpaster took over the reins as head coach and director of player personnel. He steadied the organization after its 2-3 start.

time for the ‘Breds to make incremental improvements in order to put all phases together in time for a playoff push. “We need better pitching, defense, and hitting,” said Schulkens. “Pitchers need to do a better job of throwing strikes. We simply just need to start making plays defensively.”

Commuting has adverse effect on your health

Commuting has a huge impact on our health. So it wasn’t surprising to see that commute times were included for the first time this year in the County Health Rankings, an annual assessment of health county-by-county across the country supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Boone County was one of the healthiest overall in the state, ranking third in the 2014 Health Rankings for health factors. But, the county struggles with commutes: 86 percent of Boone Countians drive to work alone, and 31 percent have a commute of 30 minutes or more. Campbell County was ninth

The Obama economy has had a devastating impact on the people of Kentucky, especially the many working women and families who keep this commonwealth running. The facts are plain: Under this president’s watch, more than 3.7 million American women have fallen into poverty, including 44,000 women in Kentucky. The average American woman now makes about $730 a year less than when the president took office. And if she’s a college graduate, she’s actually seen her income shrink by about double that amount. In other words, when it comes to American women overall, what we’ve seen over the past five and a half years is less income and more poverty. That’s the story President Obama and his allies don’t want to talk about. And no single policy is more disastrous to our economy than Obamacare. Just take Obamacare’s 30-hour workweek rule, which is forcing many employers to slash workers’ hours. By defining full-time workers who must be offered health coverage as those working 30 hours per week or more, the law gives incentives to employers to cut work hours below this threshold, thus lowering pay and productivity. Furthermore, as one study pointed out, nearly two-thirds of those adversely affected by this arbitrary provision of Obamacare are working women. The 30-hour workweek created under Obamacare

They are also more likely to make unhealthy choices for meals. When time is tight, the fast food drive thru is all the more tempting. Finally, those cars idling in traffic contribute to air pollution levels. In short, all that time sitting in our cars, by ourselves on the Cut in the Hill – or any other local road – is impacting our health. Our political and business leaders are struggling to find solutions that will reduce traffic and improve Northern Kentucky’s overall transportation system, with the reconstruction of the Brent Spence Bridge being at the forefront. It’s time for health to become part of those con-

versations. Can we design communities so it’s easy to make a healthy choice, and walk or bike short distances? How do we convince residents to take advantage of public transportation or ride-share programs? The answers may not be simple, and they certainly will come with a significant cost. But we need to consider health in all policy decisions. Investing in improvements in transportation will also improve our health, reducing the cost and impact of chronic disease in our community.

Job creation solutions for Kentuckians


As mayor of Cold Spring and a director in the private sector, I’m worried that Campbell County is not reaching its full potential in the job market. Last year, only one of the 21 job retention and creation projects touted by Northern Kentucky Economic Development Corp. (Tri-ED) took place in Campbell County. This is all the more troubling when you consider that Campbell County’s current judge-executive is the head of Tri-ED. I’ve witnessed firsthand the lack of economic recovery occurring in Campbell County. Campbell lags in several key income and education indicators while Boone and Kenton jump ahead. Frankly, we need a judge-executive who will use his influence to help Campbell instead of funneling potential jobs to Boone and Kenton. Kevin Sell is the only candidate who will tackle the two most important issues to Campbell County on Day One: job creation and the heroin epidemic. His background as an

drive to work alone, and 26 percent have a commute of 30 minutes or more. That adds up to poor health: Researchers have demonstrated that commutes can increase a person’s anxiety, blood sugar and cholesterol. Workers who have long commutes also are less likely to get regular physical activity. A study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that for each additional hour per day spent in the car, the likelihood of obesity went up 6 percent. Commuting can make other healthy habits take a back seat. People with long commutes get less sleep than those with shorter commutes.

disproportionately reduces their wages. But President Obama, Senator Harry Reid, and their liberal Sen. Mitch allies in WashMConnell ington don’t seem to care COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST about the COLUMNIST ways people are being hurt by their policies. They continue to block innovative ideas Republicans have been offering to turn the tide. For example, along with several Republican colleagues, I offered a series of measures in the U.S. Senate that will help improve the jobs picture in this country, and provide greater opportunities for women, men, and families desperate to get ahead. Yet the majority in the Senate has objected to each one. They objected to our proposal to restore the 40-hour workweek, single-handedly preventing it from passing. They also blocked my flex time proposal that would have given working Moms and Dads the option to take time off to help them find a better work/life balance. This is a policy that many working women say they want, one that’s tailored to the needs of the modern workforce, and one that many government employees already enjoy. And work/life flexibility is more critical than ever now that Obamacare’s 30-hour work rule is forcing people to

pick up a second or a third job just to scrape by. Senate liberals also blocked the pro-worker Right to Work legislation that Senator Rand Paul and I offered. Right to Work is smart policy that promises to boost competitiveness while advancing workers’ rights by ensuring workers are not forced to join, and thus aren’t limited by the dictates of, a union. It’s similar to another bill I’m proud to co-sponsor: the RAISE Act, which would allow workers to get a raise even if their union bosses don’t want them to. Currently, companies may be forced by union contracts to pay their workers the same no matter how they perform. Today, a female worker can outperform her colleagues and then be told by some union boss to sit down and accept less pay than she deserves – not a dime more than the coworkers she’s outperforming. It’s unfair. Workers like her shouldn’t be penalized by some archaic union rule dreamt up before the age of “Mad Men.” The RAISE Act would fix this by allowing individual excellence to be recognized and rewarded with merit pay. Who could be against higher pay for a job well done? Americans want solutions now, and we owe it to them to start passing the kinds of innovative, common-sense ideas that I am committed to keep pursuing on behalf of the Kentuckians I represent.

Postal service program yielded 25,000 lbs. of nonperishable products in ’13 By Stephanie Salmons and Amy Scalf,

Putting a bag of nonperishable foods by the mailbox on Saturday, May 10, can help feed a struggling family or a senior on a limited income during the summer months. The U.S. Postal Service Food Drive takes place on the second Saturday in May, but food pantries across Northern Kentucky rely on regular donations in order to feed hungry people throughout the year. According to a release from the USPS, around 50 million people face hunger every day in America, including nearly 17 million children. The postal service food drive brought in 25,000 pounds of nonperishable products in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in 2013, 7,500 pounds of which went to stock the Pantry of Hope in Highland Heights. Brandy Medaugh started a Christmas program in December 2007, which grew into the Pantry of Hope at First Baptist Church of Highland Heights, 2315 Alexandria Pike, which offers food, clothing, infant needs, household goods and toiletries from 9 a.m. to noon every Saturday. In 2008, the pantry helped 125 families, and by 2013, Medaugh and fellow volunteer Stella Worley provided goods to more than 2,300 families throughout the year. Although they‘re only open to serve the public four hours a week, nearly 400 individuals and families will come through the Pantry of Hope during each month, and the number of visitors rises through the summertime. “We do get more families with children during the summer, but we get a lot of seniors through here all year long,” said Worley. Canned dinners and instant noodles are much-needed nonperishable staples, but Medaugh encourages donors to send more nutritious foods, such as canned meats, canned tuna and breakfast cereals. Canned fruits and vegetables are always needed. “Teens who are home alone during the day can fix themselves a can of Spaghettios, or hot dogs and macaroni and cheese,” she said. “Taco dinner kits are popular, because they’re different, and we can sometimes get a pound of meat to go with it.” Morley said frozen dinners are also easy to prepare. Pantry of Hope has a freezer for hot dogs or microwavable dinners, but not all pantries do. “The most important thing is, that when you donate, check the expiration dates,” said Medaugh. “I can’t serve it if it’s past the expiration date.” Some of the other big nonperishable needs include toothpaste, feminine products and toilet paper. At Pantry of Hope, they don’t ask for income or residency information, just what can they do to help. Families in need can visit one time each

Lawson said during the summer, they’ll ask in the church bulletin for donations needed for children “not getting the food as if they were in school.” While the ministry doesn’t yet have a plan in place for the summer months, Lawson said there are items the food pantry almost always needs, like peanut butter and jelly, cereal, tuna and spaghetti. In the sum-

mer, they try to have sandwiches, she said. At Independence Christian Church, 5221 Madison Pike, where the food pantry has operated for nearly seven years, coordinator Susan Lynch said they’ve had to cut back to serving families only once every two months, because their supplies were so low. Independence Christian opens their pantry each Friday night from 6 to 7 p.m. for residents of Independence and

southern Kenton County. To donate to the food pantry, visit during serving hours or call the church office at 859-356-3525. “We really don’t see a difference because we serve once every two months. I don’t think I’ve seen a difference between the summer and winter months,” said Lynch. “We see them pretty much yearround. A lot of our families are older adults, two-person families, so it won’t make a difference between the seasons.” She said cereals, canned meats and canned fruits are always in need, along with peanut butter. When other church members decided to start a food pantry, Lynch said she didn’t think they would find support or local families in need. “Seven years later, and we’re still doing it and still serving,” she said. “That need is there everywhere. You just don’t realize it.”

Offer mom Rita’s treats for Mother’s Day My Mom, Mary Nader, really did follow the beat of a different drummer. Mom was traditional in many ways except when it came to clothes. She was the first on our block to wear petal pushers (we call them Capris now). Not so much because they were fashionable, but because they were comfortRita able. I’m a Heikenfeld little bit RITA’S KITCHEN like my Mom in that respect. I like being fashionable, but comfort trumps fashion every time. Luckily, with the assortment of clothing today, I can be both. When it came to food, Mom was “out there”, as well. We ate squid when it was just called squid, not Calamari and we ate whatever was in season. Her meager budget demanded it. She had the Mediterranean diet down pat, and as a mother myself, I appreciate more and more all the wisdom she imparted. I’ve learned that one can be a Mom without ever bearing children. My sister, Judy, is a good example of this. She has been like a Mom to our nieces and nephews. So for all the Moms out there, biological or otherwise, the happiest of Mother’s Day to you!

dium. Beat until whites stand in soft but frothy peaks. Turn to high and add sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating for 5 seconds after each addition. This assures sugars dissolves and meringues come out crispy, not too chewy. The meringue will be shiny and will fall into firm peaks when beater is lifted. Place meringue into a pastry bag with star or plain tip and draw a circle, starting from middle out. This will be your base. You can make the circle as big as you like. Then build up sides, about 3 layers. Or just plop a large dollop of meringue onto parchment and then take a spoon to hollow out center, making sure you still have a nice coating of meringue on the bottom in center. Bake 2 hours, or until meringues are dry and crisp throughout. Pull from parchment paper and store up to two weeks in airtight containers. Fill with whipped cream and fresh fruit. You can also fill with lemon curd, pudding, whatever. Makes two large Pavlo-

My grandson, Jack, invited me to read to his second grade class at Guardian Angels’ school. “If you like, bring in a treat”, his mom, Jessie, said. The only thing I had on hand was strawberries and chocolate, so I made chocolate dipped strawberries. Talk about a hit. The kids wanted to know how to make them. I told them I’d publish the recipe for them to make, and here it is. Easy enough for Jack and other little hands to make for Mom. 1 pound strawberries with stems 12 oz. favorite chocolate morsels Rinse, but do not hull berries. Drain and pat completely dry.

Dr. Tara Dallmann, DDS is a sedation expert with the training and skill to put even the most anxious patient at ease. Come back to the dentist - your smile will love you for it!

“I am so happy that I found your office in the telephone book. I have a very big fear of the dentist office. I gag easily and I don’t have any tolerance to pain. I would not get my teeth cleaned or have any other dental work without sedation. I didn’t even know that it existed until April of last year. I needed a filling replaced and I needed my teeth cleaned and I had put it off for many years because of my fear and my gag reflex. I would not be able to go back to the dentist without sedation.”

Computer business upgrades, moves to Alexandria By Amy Scalf

ALEXANDRIA — One of the city’s newest businesses is already one year old. NKY Computer Repair opened at 130 Viewpoint Drive in Alexandria in April, one year after opening in Newport. Owners Krysty Lyons and Eric Matthews said they moved the business to be closer to home. “It’s home to me,” said Lyons. “I was born and raised here.” She said their sevenminute commute is great, and Lyons has heard 87,000 cars drive by their new location each day. “Everyone in Alexandria drives by here at some point. It’s a wellknown building but not a well-known address,” she said. Now, any of those drivers can stop by to buy or sell desktop or laptop computers, tablets, smartphones or Apple products, or to get their computers repaired. “We fix broken screens and do virus and spyware removal, basic cleanup and backup,” said Mat-

thews, who is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher. All of his work is guaranteed. “I fix a lot of lost causes, and because it’s just the two of us, the turnaround time is always good. People don’t like to be away from their computers for very long,” he said. The business website,, says computers delivered before 3 p.m. on weekdays will be returned the following day. The store is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 859-2919500. Curt Bihl of Bihl Brothers Jewelers in Newport said he’s done a lot of business with Matthews during the past year, and has already brought computers to the new location. “It’s definitely worth the drive. There are not too many of those places around who do good work,” said Bihl. “He’s efficient and has very affordable pricing. Eric knows what he’s doing.” Want to continue the conversation?

Are those creepy crawlers ants or termites?

Question: I think I found some termites in a pile of old firewood. They look like big ants with wings. Do ants ever have wings? Answer: Yes they do. Warmer weather and springtime showers signal termites to emerge and fly into the air to find mates and start new colonies. That is why it is common to see large numbers of winged termites throughout the month of May. At first glance, it may be difficult to distinguish between swarming termites and winged ants. A termite has straight antennae, a uniform, non-

constricted “waist” and four wings of equal shape and length. Conversely, a winged ant has elMike bowed anKlahr tennae HORTICULTURE (with a CONCERNS sharp bend), and three distinct body sections, with a narrow, constricted “waist” and “neck”, and two front wings that are longer and wider than the two back wings. Swarming termites emerging from wood piles, tree stumps and oth-

er outdoor locations don’t necessarily indicate a home or building infestation. However, winged termites found indoors usually are a sign of an infestation that needs treatment. Although termites swarming indoors die without causing damage, seeing thousands of them emerge inside can be an emotionally trying experience. Winged termites emerging from the base of a foundation wall or adjoining porches also usually indicate that the house is infested and requires treatment. Other indications of termite infestations are

pencil-thin mud tubes extending over inside and outside surfaces of foundation walls, piers, sills, floor joists and the like. Also watch for damaged wood hollowed out along the grain with dried bits of mud or soil lining the feeding galleries. Often there is no sign of the worker termites that cause damage—small, creamy-white insects with an ant-like appearance. Infestations can remain undetected for years, hidden behind drywall paneling, floor coverings, insulation and other obstructions. Damage to exposed wood isn’t noticeable because the

outer surface usually is left intact. It takes the keen eye of an experienced professional to detect termite damage and treat this problem. Since eliminating termites requires special skills and equipment, it is best to contact a pest control company rather than try to treat for them yourself. Consider calling two or three companies to request inspections to determine the extent and approximate cost to treat the termite problem. The company should be licensed by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Membership in a state or national pest con-

trol or management association indicates an established firm with access to technical and training information necessary to correctly do the job. Always ask for references. For more information about pests around the home, plant identification and care, plus updates on upcoming Extension classes, and to win free vegetable seeds for your garden, go to or contact your local County Cooperative Extension Service.

ALEXANDRIA — At age 14, Mitchell Turner has already scored a perfect 36 on the ACT in his first time taking the test measuring college readiness. Turner is one of only eight students in eighth grade to score a perfect 36 since April 2010, said Katie Wacker, a spokeswoman for ACT. In the past four years there have been 8,600 scores of 36 from students in all grades. Kentucky requires all high school juniors to take the test, and students can take the test multiple times in an attempt to better their score. All major U.S. colleges accept ACT scores as evidence a student is academically prepared. Turner, a member of the academic team at Campbell County Middle School, said he took the ACT now because some of his friends and classmates took the test a year ago. “I wanted to see how I stood with the other people who took it,” he said. Turner said he will probably take the ACT once or twice more while in high school to see how he is doing. Regardless of how he does if he takes the ACT test again, he can still use the 36 when applying to colleges. He took the ACT at Campbell County High School April 14, and found out he scored a 36 on April 22. Turner found out about the score by looking at the ACT website as his father Rick drove him home from school. “I did not think I did anywhere close to that well, so I was in shock for a few minutes,” he said. Turner said he spends more time playing video games, about four hours a day, than he does study-

ing. He dreams of becoming a video game designer, but hasn’t decided that is what he wants to do for certain. His father, Rick, said his son does study each night before going to bed because it helps keep the information fresh in his memory each day. “His gift is he has the ability of once he sees it, he’s got it,” said his father. Turner said he did study for the ACT, but not every night. When his father borrowed a book from the library about how to study for the ACT, he read it. Turner said he

also answered practice questions online about once or twice a week as he prepared for the ACT. “I didn’t expect to do that well,” he said. “I was trying to do all right.” His mother, Cathleen, said middle school math teacher Faye Smith and science teacher Doni Beaupre had a positive influence. Smith is also coach of the academic team and the Math Counts student team. “The only reason he took the ACT is he’s doing really well in academic team and Math Counts,” said his mother.
