New fair trade store to open in Newport By Amanda Joering Alley

NEWPORT — This Saturday, Reegan Hill is holding the grand opening of her new fair trade store, It’s Only Fair, at 123 East Ninth Street in Newport. But, Hill hasn’t always been an advocate for fair trade. “About five years ago, I was completely ignorant about fair trade,” Hill said. “I had only heard that it was more expensive, but I didn’t really get it.” Then, while at a concert Hill attended, the artist talked about fair trade and how people in America can use their buying power to benefit others throughout the world.

Hill said that speech opened her eyes, leading her to start researching fair trade, human trafficking and the slavery that still exists today. “I was just amazed to learn that slavery still exists today and how bad it is for so many people,” Hill said. “The things I learned haunted me, and I reached a place where I knew I couldn’t just walk away from the issue.” Hill said she started looking for ways she could help, and even traveled to other countries where she found nonprofit groups who rescued people from slavery and involuntary prostitution and taught them a trade, like making scarfs or jewelry, and paid them a fair wage. These groups said one of their biggest needs was for people to take

theirproductsandselltheminAmerica. After getting the necessary licenses in place, Hill and her younger daughter Marissa, who has been her partner through her whole experience, bought some of the products and began selling them at parties and other events, gaining a dedicated following of customers. About a year ago, Hill said she started thinking that opening a store would be an incredible next step. Initially, Hill had planned to only offer products made by survivors in her store, but that plan changed when she visited India. “When I saw that extreme poverty, I thought ‘we can rescue people all day long, but unless we can provide jobs for these vulner-

able people, they’ll end up in the same situation,’” Hill said. Hill, who lives in Covington, will offer everything from jewelry, bags and scarfs to coffee, tea and chocolate in her store. Hill said since all the items have a story behind them, she has put up information and pictures on the walls, so people can really connect to what they’re buying. Hill said she knows many people think just like she used to that fair trade products are far more expensive, but that many people are surprised when they find that her prices are pretty reasonable since she buys products directly from the nonprofit groups she’s connected with over the years. Hill and her daughter are

holding the grand opening of their store from noon to 6 p.m. on World Fair Trade Day, Saturday, May 12. Hill said she hopes people will visit the store and help her change the world by changing the way they shop. Hill said for her, purchasing and selling fair trade items is a way the she can prevent human trafficking. “I think the beauty of our story is that it shows that average, ordinary people can make a difference in the world,” Hill said.

bridal parties,” Robinson said. “It will be a blast for anyone who enjoys music, shopping and walking along the avenue.” Bethany Flick from Lila Elliot Design, one of the event’s organizers, said the idea for the event came about as a way to promote Bellevue’s bridal district by doing something other than the typical bridal show. “We just wanted to put a different spin on what people are used to as far as bridal shows,” Flick said. “This event will be more laid-back and fun for everyone.” Event attendees will get to see people modeling dresses and tuxes along the avenue courtesy of Belle Bridal Boutique and Schrader’s Formal Wear and dancing demonstrations by Step N Out Dance Studio as well as participate in mini makeup sessions by 501 Salon and Spa and more. Anyone that preregisters will have a chance to win a giveaway basket worth more than $1,000, including an engagement photography session and discounts on a dress and custom invitations.

Footlighters bring taste of Italy By Amanda Joering Alley

Members of the Footlighters, Inc., are bringing the feel of Italy to Newport in their production of the musical “The Light in the Piazza.” The story, set in the 1950s, is about a southern woman and her daughter who spend a summer to-

the cast members had to learn to speak Italian.” For one of those actors, Florence resident Jeff Richardson, who plays Signor Naccarelli in the show, it took a lot of work and practice to not only speak Italian, but also to speak English with an Italian accent during some parts of the show. To get the point across to

gether in Italy. Bringing Italy to Newport proved to be quite a challenge, said Gary Wettengel, who is producing the show with Cathy Lutts and Madeline Setterberg. “This show was challenging because the set is very big, but absolutely gorgeous,” Wettengel said. “Also, there is a lot of Italian in the script, so a lot of

the audience, Richardson said the actors had to learn and understand exactly what each Italian phrase meant. “The audience won’t have to know what is being said by the actors in Italian, because we learned about to portray the meaning with body language,” Richardson said. “Physical form is a big part of theater, especially in a situation like this, where you need the audience to be able to see what you’re saying.” To help the actors learn the Italian phrases and gestures, the Footlighters enlisted the help of one of their members, performer Ron Houck Jr., who lived in Italy for eight years during part of his career. Houck became involved with the group through his parents, Ron Houck Sr. and Freida Houck, who have been members for very active members for decades. Houck said the first day he met with the actors, he didn’t know if it would be possible for some of them to catch on. But, after giving them audio recordings he made of the lines and working with them on their speech and gestures, Houck said they were really able to pick it up. “I really give them credit for how far they came,”

Footlighters Inc. performers Steffen Whorton and Samantha Stein rehearse a scene from the group's production of "The Light in the Piazza,” which runs through Saturday, May 19, at the Stained Glass Theatre in Newport. AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY RECORDER Houck said. “They were really able to get into their roles.” Fort Thomas resident Catherine Ross, who plays one of the lead roles in the show, didn’t have to learn Italian like some of the others, but said the show was challenging nonetheless because of the music, which is being played by a harp, violin, piano and bass and doesn’t have the kind of catchy melodies other musicals feature. Though Ross said she knew the show would be difficult, she jumped at the chance to be a part of it. Having seen a performance of the musical on television a few years ago, Ross said she felt the role

of Margaret Johnson, the southern mother, was made for her. When Ross, who had been involved with the Footlighters years ago, saw that they were doing this show, she said she couldn’t wait to come back to the Stained Glass Theatre, where the group performs all of its shows. “This building is a historical jewel and this play is a jewel of a musical,” Ross said. The show will be performed now through Saturday, May 19. For more information about show times and to purchase tickets, visit or call 652-3849.

Construction continues on readiness center Ky. Symphony wraps 20th season By Stephanie Salmons

The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra will wrap its regular 20th season, “again doing something relatively unique,” music director James Cassidy said. “The Cinematic Piano,” which will be performed at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion, will feature piano works composed for and used in films from 1940 and 1960. Tickets are $28 for “A” seats and $23 for “B” seats. Prices for the “B” seats are reduced to $18 for seniors and $10 for students. For more information and tickets, call the KSO at 859-431-6261or visit Film clips leading to some of the works to be performed will precede and introduce the piece and performer. The performance will also feature local pianists Marcus Küchle, Edward Neeman, Scot Woolley and Steven Hinnenkamp. According to Cassidy,

it’s rare to go to a concert where everything is a showcase for piano. When planning performances, Cassidy says he looks for pieces that haven’t been covered in the KSO’s 20 years, then tries to find things that would be engaging and interesting for everybody. “The film brings it into the universal,” he said of the upcoming show. Cassidy says the program is really something different. Unique programming is something that has been carried throughout the season, he said. “We really did this season to highlight how our program makes the Kentucky Symphony different from most orchestras out there,” said Cassidy. “That’s been our goal too. We’ve wanted to take this great talent pool we have in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati and bring these musicians together to do programs you wouldn’t find at the Cincinnati Symphony.”

BURLINGTON — Construction is well under way on the new Kentucky National Guard Readiness Center being built in Burlington. The $19.5 million federally funded facility will be located near the Boone County Sheriff’s Department on Conrad Lane and Gateway Industrial Park. “We’ve been amazed and pleased to find out about this building because it’s not only a great asset as a readiness center for the Guard and the Guard unit ... it’s a great community building,” said Bob Green, senior vice president of manufacturing and existing industry for the Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corp. Ground broke on the facility in September, and according to Capt. Joseph Sloan, designs and projects manager for the Kentucky National Guard, construction should be completed by March 2013, if not sooner. “Usually we’re within that date to 30 days out before we’re moved in and fully operational,” he said. This location was chosen because of the “gap in response times in this section of the state,” Sloan said. The closest unit is a “fairly small unit” in Walton, and then in Morehead, he said. “When you’re talking about natural disasters, we want to be close enough that we can respond, but not so close that we could potentially be involved in the natural disaster,” said

A 2009 performance of the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra at the Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion. The KSO will wrap its 20th season on May 12 with the program “Cinematic Piano.” THANKS TO JAMES CASSIDY

Sloan, who highlighted progress on the project during an informal briefing April 25. The readiness center, encompassing some 77,000 square feet, will feature nearly 5 acres of parking, storage and administrative spaces, conference rooms, classrooms and an assembly hall. It will house the 1204th Aviation Support Battalion. “It’s a really massive building directly adjacent to farm land and some relatively dense housing across the street,” Sloan said – some of which conflicted with the National

Guard’s mission to reduce the energy impact and cost to taxpayers Typically, he said, to reduce energy impact, the long axis of the building would be oriented east to west, but on the center’s site, the building had to go against that, with the short axis facing Conrad Lane. That’s something that was done “primarily out of respect for the public and the adjacent residential buildings,” Sloan said. Several trees remain along the road, which “makes us appear not quite as aggressive and overwhelming, helps security

and also helps deaden any kind of sound generated through our maintenance shop or the helicopter landing, or any general noise we produce,” he said. David Marshall, assistant director of facilities division for the state National Guard, said other facilities are used by the community “for a little bit of everything.”

Smaller numbers, bigger hopes By Adam Turer

NEWPORT — Newport Central Catholic’s boys track and field team heads into the Ninth Region meet this weekend aiming to qualify half of its individuals. The Thoroughbreds are not deep, with just 23 boys on the team. However, Hall of Fame head coach Dave Ueding hopes his team can advance at least 10 individuals to the state meet in Lexington. “Our region is so tough,” said Ueding, who was inducted into the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame in January. “We might be able to get some at-large qualifiers.” The Thoroughbreds are led by

a core group of seniors. High jumper Justin Romito is expected to finish in the top three and advance. Senior Matt Dettmer will compete in relay events and the triple jump. Senior Evan Trauth is a standout in the 800meters and 4x800 relay. Senior Logan Martin is in his first year of competition, but has quickly taken to throwing the discus. “He’s started picking up big strides in the last couple weeks,” said Ueding of Martin, an offensive lineman for the ‘Breds football team. Junior Sam Barth is a contender in the 800-meters. The team is veteran-laden with three juniors and seven seniors.

Camels return to conference tennis final By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — The Campbell County High School boys tennis team got some new blood after reaching the finals of the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference tournament last year. Collin Johnson moved in from Oklahoma and took over the No. 1 singles spot. He and the returning Camels got back to the conference final this year before falling 4-0 to Covington Catholic May 1. Campbell had a record of 11-8 entering the 10th Region Tournament, which was set to begin May 5. “The past couple of years we’ve gone to the semifinal matches at regions and bowed out,” said head coach Jeremiah Sowards. “I’d like to see us go further. I’d like to see us do well and be good sportsmen.” Johnson, a senior, has had a strong year at first singles. “He’s a very good player,” Sowards said. “He has really been instrumental not only helping us with the way that he plays, but he is helping our other players get better. Not only is he a good player, but he is a good leader on and off the court.” Junior Jared Wittrock took his first loss of the year against Cov Cath’s Ben Reis. Michael Lauer played third singles and was losing his match when rain stopped it. David Jaggers and Tristen Reimer, seniors, played first singles and Luke Spradlin and Jared Clark play second doubles. “We’ve got a number of juniors and I’ve played a number of them at three (singles),” Sowards said. “Our doubles players are brand new to doubles and they’re emerging. They’re working hard at getting better.”

vidual qualifiers.” As a team, the Thoroughbreds lack one clear strength. They could advance qualifiers in field events, relays or distance events. “We are a little varied this year,” said Ueding. “We could have some finish in the top five in their event at regionals.” St. Henry is expected to run away with the Ninth Region championship. NewCath will spread its competitors out over several different events in the hopes of advancing as many boys as possible to the state meet. “Our region is going to be very competitive,” said Ueding. The Ninth Region track and field meet begins Friday, May 11, at Walton-Verona. The state meet begins on May 17 at the University of Louisville.

Library increase asking too much

The saying goes: How do you eat an elephant? Answer – one bite at a time. If it always seems that there is more month than money, here are some headKevin Gordon lines and info that explain COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST who is eating COLUMNIST your paycheck one bite at a time: • Jan. 9, 2011, “NKY water rates rising 25%” • April 7, 2011, Boone County Recorder: “Sanitation District rates to rise 15 percent” • Jan. 11, 2012 Journal News: “Kentucky’s retail food prices fall in fourth quarter of 2011 Average price for the year jumps 8.8 percent overall” • “Utilities in Kentucky warn of 20 percent rate increase” • On April 20, 2010, the average retail price of

gas was around $2.84 per gallon, on April 20, 2012, the average retail price of gas was around $3.90 per gallon, $1.06 per gallon higher (a 37.4 percent increase). • Calculating these increases from the information provided in the articles, these items alone will cost the average consumer $2,022.58 more per year. Don’t get me started on cable, cell phone and high-speed Internet rates. If you have school age children, I don’t have to remind you of school fees, activity fees, sports and/or after-school activity expenses (dance class, gymnastics, scouting, etc.) Oh by the way, we do have to wear clothes, repair, maintain and insure our cars and homes, etc. You get the picture. Now along comes the Campbell County Public Library Board of Trustees (Board), who plan to impose a 27 percent

increase for their share of County Property Taxes to fund the construction and operation of a new library which is less than five miles from the Pendleton County border. Who is this Board and how can they raise our taxes? Currently, the county judge-executive appoints the members from a list provided by the library. Under the existing law “special taxing districts” have been established; the boards overseeing these districts are allowed to levy and raise certain taxes. Thus we have a board who are un-elected and un-accountable to the citizens of Campbell County. “Taxation without representation is tyranny” (James Otis, 1761) comes to mind. I am not anti-library, I am pro-fiscal responsibility and sound business practices. I am not in favor of the citizens of Campbell County paying for a

northern branch of the Pendleton County Public Library. The board says it only amounts to $20 per year on a $100,000 house. However that is on top of the current rate of $74 per year on a $100,000 house. Based on the median home value and the current rate, the annual tax is $108.26. The proposed increase would add $29.26 for a total of $137.52 per year. That is not the entire library taxes that you pay. Don’t forget about the library’s tax, .026 percent per $100 value, on personal property: cars, trucks, RVs motorcycles, etc. In and of itself the library tax may not seem like much, but when added to the increases listed above, no wonder it seems that the time between paydays seems longer and longer. Furthermore, consider this: Businesses do not pay taxes. Taxes are a cost of doing busi-

ness and are included in the price you pay for the goods and services you buy. If you shop or pay for services in Campbell County, you are paying a portion of the Library tax charged to those businesses. The Campbell County Public Library Board of Trustees has hired a professional fundraiser to start a capital campaign. The fundraiser is encouraged by the results of their survey conducted to determine the success of such a campaign. In my opinion, the board should have done this back in 2007 before they considered the construction of a southern branch. The board should wait and see how much this capital campaign produces. Only then will the board be able to properly determine their funding requirements.

Is 401k a ticking time bomb?

It helps to talk it out

Internal Revenue Code section 401(k) is the only section of the U.S. tax code that the average people can cite. They know it has something, to do with whether or not they can retire with dignity. Or retire at all. The adoption of section 401(k) in 1982 turned out to be one of those big moments that changed everything. 401(k) plan investments are a primary driver of the investment markets. It is the employee retirement benefit that most companies offer. The performances of the plan’s investments are also the reason that many people are pacing the floors at night, worrying if their retirement will get delayed or destroyed. Until 401(k) came along, pension plans were usually defined benefit plans. A defined benefit pension gives you a set number of dollars for set period of time. It usually pays out over the course of your lifetime after you retire. (Like an immediate annuity does.) With a defined benefit plan, the employer takes responsibility for making sure pension money is safe and properly invested. With the advent of the 401(k), employees with little or no in-

Lonnie Fields was a lucky man. When tragedy hammered him, caring people helped him back on his feet. Lonnie’s family lived outside Alexandria when he was born in April 1983. His father, Jack, was an over-the-road truck driver. The family moved several times as Lonnie grew up; from Alexandria to rural Kenton County, to a place outside Florence and then back to Campbell County. At 5 foot 11 and 185 pounds, Lonnie was pretty much average, except that his blonde hair brightened the lop-sided smile that rarely left his face. He made friends easily, he told me. Lonnie was good with his hands, skilled at figuring out how things fit together. He had a knack finding a way to make broken things work. For years, he moved easily from job to job, raising his income. When Jack died in 2003, Lonnie’s mother decided, despite the illness that was slowly sapping her strength, to remain in the home she and her husband had known. Neighbors were close by and willing to help her if needed. Lonnie got married in 2006. He and his wife were saving up to start a family when the economy hit the skids in 2008. Lonnie was laid off and couldn’t find another company to hire him. For a while, they lived on the money his wife earned from her secretary job and Lonnie’s unemployment. Times got hard. In 2009, still unemployed, Lonnie lost his wife to another man. “I almost went crazy,” he told me. Lonnie said he began spending more time with his mother and doing volunteer work at his church. Then, in 2010, Lonnie’s mother died. Her death hit Lonnie hard. The smile disappeared. “It felt like my world had been blown apart,” he said. He stopped volunteering at his church, stayed home alone, watched TV, ate mostly snack food. Sometimes he’d go to a bar, which is where I met and got to know him the night he “celebrated” his birthday with a beer. Lonnie’s minister suggested he find someone to talk to reg-

vestment experience were required to pick among investment options offered by an employer. Employees Don McNay were put in the position to fail. COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST Many have. COLUMNIST It is up to the employer to pick what investment company handles the employee’s money. If the employer picks a dog, with few options, the employee is out of luck. Even worse, some companies push their employees to use 401(k) money to buy stock in the company they work for. If the company goes broke, people lose their jobs and their retirement savings, too. There is a second major problem: Not putting enough money in the 401(k) to begin with. 401(k) plans give people a lot of freedom but my experience in working with injury victims and lottery winners who get big money is that too much freedom is not a blessing. Freedom without perceived consequences can lead to disastrous decisions. I’ve always encouraged peo-

ple to put the maximum amount into a 401(k) plan. Few do. Many put in little or nothing at all. Now many are looking at a bleak retirement. Defined benefit plans encouraged people to stay at the same employer. 401(k) plans do not. I’ve watched tons of people change jobs and then blow the 401(k) money before they started their new job. It’s been said that 90 percent of people with a lump sum of money will run through it in five years or less. The same statistic can hold true for people who receive 401(k) rollovers as it does for lottery winners. When historians study the cause of the 2008 economic meltdown, they will see that the change from defined benefit plans to 401(k) plans in 1982 was a factor. It was one of many shifts where dramatic changes were made in people’s lives and liberties. People didn’t realize just how dramatic until years later. If we are going to keep from running behind, 401(k) is one of those things that we need to fix.

Why MY MOM rocks Readers share ideas on why their mother’s the greatest

By Nancy Daly

Mom: Jennifer Ossege

She gives great advice, cooks dinner and offers a shoulder to lean on. She’s the biggest fan at your football games, school plays or music recitals. Funny, strong and diplomatic, she gives unconditional love. These are the qualities readers shared when the Recorder asked “Why Your Mom Rocks.” We join you in giving a shout-out to all the moms in Northern Kentucky this Mother’s Day.

My mom is very special. She is always there for me, no matter what. I would do anything for her. She is loving, caring, and everything I could ever want. She encourages me in everything I do, is very supportive. I love my mom forever, for always, and no matter what.

Mom: Sheila Lloyd

My mom, Sheila Lloyd, rocks because she’s super mom. Since my sisters and I were born starting in 1989, she has worked as an R.N. full time. My mom rocks because she not only is a nurse and nurses everybody else back to health that she comes in contact with but she also has nursed and loved my sisters, Chelsea and Catrina, my dad Gary, our dogs Rex and Lucy and I back to health whenever we need her – which is every day. Growing up in a house full of three teenage girls, we weren’t the easiest to raise with all the attitude and little fights that sisters have, but our mom has shown us that growing up to be an independent and educated woman are the most important things that we can do. She has encouraged us to follow our dreams and has supported us on everything that we do. Carissa Lloyd California, Ky.

Mom: Jennifer Lembright There aren’t enough words to describe my mom. I could say, “She’s the best,” or “She’s awesome,” but neither of those would do her justice. What I can describe is her patience. She has patience that I could only dream of having in the future. When we disobey there is no yelling or screaming, instead a calm voice, “Girls, that hurts my feelings when you act like that.” I almost would rather be yelled at. She knows something from the heart will teach better than all else. We love you mom! Hannah, Caroline, and Sarah Lembright Fort Thomas

Peggy Berkemeyer, left, honors her sister Leah Evans, right, this Mother’s Day. PROVIDED

Sister: Leah Evans

Mom: Julie Shelton She is the one who always tells us to be ourselves no matter what. She is always telling us to never give up on something – but to go for it – you have a goal, then reach for it with both hands and hold onto it. She encourages us to do what we love and also do what is right. No matter what we do she will always love us even though sometimes she may not always like what we do. She’s always at a track meet, a color guard competition, plays or music recitals and will always be our biggest fan. She takes tons of photos and turns then into scrapbooks that are a story of our life. That is what makes our mom so special.

I’m writing about my sister Leah because in the past several years she has overcome many obstacles in her life. In 2007 Leah, her son Jacob and daughter Heather were in an automobile accident that took the life of Heather and left Jacob and Leah severely injured. Leah still continues to heal. She has a smile on her face and encourages others to believe and trust in God and He will take care of you. My sister is “The Wind Beneath My Wings.” Happy Mother’s Day. Peggy Berkemeyer Alexandria

Mom: Darla Wipfel

Christie and Syd Fillhardt live in Highland Heights.

Mothers are expected to be nurturing, care giving, guiding. My mom is all of this; but she’s also funny, and will go to any length to make someone else smile. Mothers are expected to be strong, diplomatic, enlightening. My mom is all of this; and she’s also a pillar, respectful and audacious all the while. Mothers are expected to love unconditionally, endlessly, undying. My mom does all of this; as she has cared for her children and her children’s children through the days. Mothers are expected to sacrifice, carry burdens, keep smiling. My mom does all of this; a woman who deserves this – and more – praise.

Mom: Christie Fillhardt

Doris Florimonte, of Alexandria, is shown on her last night at work at Baptist Convalescent Center. She retired in December after working there 35 years. PROVIDED

Mom: Doris Florimonte

My mom, Christie, has always been a big inspiration in my life. She is very supportive of me and she always inspires me to do my best. This year my mom and I donated 30 pillow cases to River Valley Nursing Home in Butler, Ky. My mom helps me keep my academic goals up by consistently checking my grades and helping me prepare for my future. I am so glad to have my mom. She does a lot of things to make me happy. I am very fortunate and lucky to have my mom. That is why my mom is awesome. Syd Fillhardt Highland Heights

What makes Doris Florimonte special is her work ethic and how she puts her family and others first. This is evident by having worked at the Baptist Convalescent Center as a nurse’s aide for over 35 years where she had a 20-year stretch of averaging working 72 hours per week. She did this to afford her children the opportunities she did not have growing up. Her passion turned toward her patients, when her children started families of their own; always spending some of her earnings making sure her patients had things they needed. At 73 she retired in December. Enjoy retirement Mom! Michael, Tracy, Gracie, Anthony and Jillian Florimonte Alexandria

Mom’s Day treat might be fresh herb spread

With Mother’s Day approaching, I am reminded of my own mom, Mary Nader. You Rita would have Heikenfeld loved her – RITA’S KITCHEN mom stood out in a crowd, but in a quiet, beautiful way. That describes her, both inside and out. What I try to do as a mom and grandmom is to share my traditions with my family like my parents did. Mom used to say to know who you are, you have to know where you came from. This Mother’s Day, share your story with your family, especially the little ones. That’s how traditions begin. Remember the “other” moms too, the ones who may not be biologically related, but who are blessings in your life.

Belgian endive water lily with fresh herb spread This was a featured recipe when Country Gardens magazine came out to my home for a day of photographing my herb garden and making herbal recipes. It is so easy, looks elegant and every time I make it in class, it becomes a student favorite. Sprinkle a few fresh herbs (even parsley looks nice) and edible flowers on top for a real treat for mom. This spread is better than

the boursin cheese spread you can buy. The spread is also delicious on crostini or as a dip for veggies. Notice the range in herb amounts. Start with first amount listed and then go from there, adding more if you like. Endive leaves: 3-4 heads. Cut bottoms from endive heads. Wash leaves gently and drain well to dry. Set aside while making herb spread. Mix together either in food processor or mixer until well blended: 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup, 1 stick butter, softened 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons each fresh herbs: oregano, thyme, basil, dill and onion chives 1/4 teaspoon black pepper or dash or two of cayenne pepper, ground 2 tablespoons freshly

grated Parmesan cheese Squeeze or two of lemon juice

Place mixture on large round plate. Shape into a disk. Starting with largest endive leaves first, insert leaves into bottom of mound and push in about an inch, making a single layer of leaves. Keep inserting layers of leaves in alternate rows, making a flower petal pattern. This can be made several hours ahead to this point. Cover lightly and refrigerate. When ready to serve, sprinkle with chopped edible flowers or insert an edible flower petal into the base of each endive leave where it meets the cream cheese mixture. This spread is a good keeper, covered, in the refrigerator, up to two weeks. Even easier: Use dry herbs along with the fresh


garlic, Parmesan and lemon juice. Use these herbs in place of fresh: 1/2 t ea: dried oregano, thyme, marjoram, basil, dill weed. This version is from friend and colleague, Kay Hitzler, a multi-talented nurse and cook.

Version with carrot and celery sticks

This one is fun for the kids to make. Instead of endive leaves, poke carrot and celery sticks into the mound.

Mix all ingredients. Chill. Can be made a day ahead of time. Update: Wiedeman’s crescents. I’m so excited. I talked with Carole, the Wiedeman’s daughter, who found a similar recipe in a cookbook. Then I got a note from Pete, her brother, the retired owner, who shared a home version of the original Kipfel cookie! I’ll share that soon. Readers tips: Mulberry rhubarb pie.

Be careful when signing land contract During these tough economic times, a growing number of people have been entering into land contracts as an inexpensive way to buy a house. They pay a monthly fee to the homeowner for a set number of years, then they become the owner. This allows them to buy a house even if they don’t qualify for a bank loan. But if they’re not careful, they could get burned in such a deal. Cynthia Buchanan had been renting a house in Williamsburg when the owners of the house next door came to her with a land contract offer. “They offered this house to me for what they owed on it. They said they would pay for the attorney fees and everything – and have it filed properly through the court. I never had any problems with them,” she says.

That was back in 2003 and everything did go well for about six years. Then in 2009, she noticed Howard some men Ain surveying HEY HOWARD! the house. Buchanan says, “They said, ‘We were just seeing if the house was occupied.’ I said, ‘If the house was occupied, what do you mean?’ They said, ‘Well, this house is in foreclosure.’” Buchanan immediately contacted the bank but officials there would not talk with her because her name is not on the mortgage. Although she had been faithfully paying the homeowners all those years, they had stopped paying the bank. “I’ve also paid the land taxes. I quit paying them last year because the foreclosure just kept going on and on and it was one hear-

ing after another. You know, I’ve already thrown out enough money,” Buchanan says. Unfortunately, before the Buchanans found out the house was in foreclosure, they had made improvements to the property. They say they spent about $20,000 putting in new drywall, new doors and new molding because they really thought they were going to own the place. That’s something you really don’t want to do until you actually own the property. “I presumed I was going to own it. The repairs were made and two weeks before I found out this house was in foreclosure I was in the process of having a new furnace and air conditioner installed,” Buchanan says. Now, Buchanan says she’s glad she didn’t put any more money into the house because she and her family may be forced to move out if it is sold at a sheriff’s sale. Her only hope is that someone buys the house

and allows her to remain there as a renter. The Buchanans stopped making their monthly payments about a year and a half ago, and they are trying to save their money in case they have to move out. If you’re considering buying a house on a land contract, it’s important to hire your own lawyer to draw up the contract. Attorney Michael Ganson tells me the lawyer must be able to get the mortgage company to agree in writing to alert you to any default – and give you the right to cure the default so you can keep the property. Without all that, Ganson says, you have no rights should the homeowner default. In that case, everything you paid is just going to be considered rent.

Why does weight loss “work” sometimes and not others. Recently, I found the answer. (Sorry ladies, it was not a magic pill that eliminates fat and burns calories overnight. Bummer, I know.) The answer is that weight loss does work and it works when we work it. It works when you journal, exercise, drink your water and weigh in weekly. Period. We however, get entangled in a goal stealing, motivation zapping game of Denial. Denial is comprised of three vicious cyclical rounds of “justifying, minimizing and pretending.” Let me explain it this way. When people come into the meeting room and “hop onto the scale”, if the number goes up or barely moves the game begins. Justify- “I’m not sure why it says that, I

was really good this week and I even exercised.” This is usually followed up with the Julie House minimizCOLUMNIST ing-“We did eat out a few times this week, but that couldn’t have hurt me that much.” And then we round out the conversation with a game of pretend-“You know what, I’m not worried about it, not one bit.” The problem is that typically when that game is played for too long, I have lost another contender in the battle of the bulge. Frustration eventually sets in and they stop coming to the meeting before ever reaching their weight loss goals. Sound familiar? If not in the world of weight loss, how about the game of life? We play the Denial game there too. Denying there are problems in our lives through justify-

ing, minimizing, and pretending. “I don’t know why life isn’t working out the way I planned. I’m a good person; I believe in God and pay my taxes.” (Justifying) “Sure, I need to straighten myself out in a few areas and I’m not ready to give up certain behaviors, but hey, I went to church last week.” (Minimizing) “Hey, it’s my life and I’ll live it the way I want to.” (Pretending) Let me address that last statement. What would you tell you’re 13-year-old, sporting a crazy attitude if he/she used that statement on you? Something like, “Oh no it’s not your life, I brought you into this world and I can take you out, if I want to.” (Just to verify, I have not used that one on any of my children. Yet!) However, I think my God has the authority and power to use that one on me if He wants to. We deny God’s power to change our lives when we justify, minimize, and

pretend we’ve got it all under control. God’s plan works, if you work it. Daily bible reading, constant prayer and talks with God and consistent church attendance are part of the program. The bible makes it very clear and very simple. “The Lord is good and does what is right. He shows the proper path to those who have gone astray.” Psalms 25:8 Denial is no way to live. It keeps us stuck, frustrated and powerless. Grab onto God’s word and win in this game of life. Julie House is a member of East Dayton Baptist Church and former resident of Campbell County. She graduated from NKU with her Bachelors Degree and now resides in Independence. She is also the Founder and Leader of Equipped Ministries, a local health and wellness program with a focus on weight loss.
